    According to "Operation Bumblebee Part 1", TFs are biological, not mechanical. Do they have cells and sophisticated organs like we do? Could they even be more complex than humans just like we are more complex than reptiles and insects? Could they even reproduce like biological organisms instead of being made in a factory?

    Both are complex, but in different ways.

    This my opinion as well. Also, complexity doesn't always mean better, IMO. From what I can tell, sometimes the simplest organisms are the hardiest.

    I'd say they'd be a bit more complex than humans, but they are only partly biological. Starscream had his arm replaced, but sensitive parts like T-Cogs and eyes and voice boxes have been shown to be organic parts. But good gosh, can we ignore the question "Can they reproduce?" This is a children's cartoon, it's the last subject they would explore.

    I don't know, watching Megatron share his caring, nurturing side with a bunch of baby Vehicons in the Decepticreche would be a pretty spiffy episode.

    OP is merely seeking justification for writing TF smut.

    It's only a matter of time before Bumblebee loses his wang as well. I think the show's writers are trying to remove him from the series bit-by-bit.

    Not "organical", but "biological"; for cybertronians (living machines), they are different words.

    That DOESN'T mean they have to reproduce like humans. Not all biological organisms have genders and reproduce like us! Of course, if they are at least as complicated as us, they would probably reproduce like us. We don't divide into two because we are far more complex than single-cell organisms. There's just no way our billions of cells can do that all at once and produce another human. Plus, that human would just be a clone of the first and thus our species wouldn't have the diversity to survive and evolve. And we don't hatch from eggs for a very good reason. There are only so many nutrients inside an egg to sustain a developing organism for so long. And due to only so many tiny holes in the egg's shell, only so much oxygen could enter it. Thus an organism's complexity and brain development is limited by the contents of an egg which is not enough to develop a large-brained complex creature such as ourselves. That's why biologists proposed that if dinosaurs didn't go extinct and eventually evolved the large brains we have, they would develop the placenta and reproduce like we do. So actually, if TFs have cells and can reproduce, they would probably have genders for genetic diversity and give birth to young like we do. Organisms on other planets with large complex brains would most likely have at least two genders and reproduce like we do as well according to convergent evolution.

    They are biological in the movies too

    If he loses that, he'll go on a MECH killing spree! Human blood splattered everywhere! Then Optimus will disown him for using excessive force against humans. Then Raf will disown Optimus for disowning Bee. Then Raf and Bee will go rogue and do all sorts of things.

    One Autobot. Lost his wang in the line of duty...
    Actually, re-watch the episode pretending that it was indeed his wang that Bumblebee had stolen. Then him being really pissed off works even better.

    Optimus: "You have to stay at the silo, Bumblebee. Without your wang you're not as useful to us."

    Arcee: "You got that right."

    Bulkhead: "Yeah. Er - I mean... Um... Look - Scraplets!"

    Biological does not mean organic. They are metal and do not have cells.

    They can be made out of inorganic nanites just as we are made out of our own version of organic nanites called cells.
