    They probably "grow" it like they heal their armour. (in the first movie it said they were self-regenerating, and since the ammo is part of them...)

    makes sense to me

    but what about missile launchers? do they "grow" the parts and then assemble them?

    the book says that they eat scaps of metal and thats where it comes from, basically their bodies take this material and converts it to what is needed (repairs, ammo, etc)

    it said this in the prequel novel

    And if they wind up using too mcuh, they need to eat a lot of scrap. The mass finds some way to store itself when the Transform.

    But ahat ever happened to using lasers? A TF don't have to produce ammo from his/her mass to use them.

    In "Reign of Starscream," Starscream mentions that Transformers' ammunition regenerates like human fingernails or hair, except at a faster rate.
