    I really dont think that this should happen this soon, especially since we now know that there are still two season at least left.

    Pus Cybertron is not just their former homeworld, but also a smybol of what can belost during a war. Its something that all the autobots feel guilt over. And Optimus uses it as an example to humanity about why they should follow peace and not war.

    But now that message is goiing to be lost dure to macguffin of the omega lock.

    Also Primus did tell Optimus that it would take several millenia for him to heal from the damafe that the war did to the planet. He certainly didn't mention that there would be a quick fix out there for them to find.

    It just feels that the hard lessons that they learnt by losing their home will be cheapened by this.

    It's been more than several millenia. The Great War took place during the age of the dinosaurs on Earth.

    Still I feel Cybertron should stay lost.

    Its the Price they paid for the civil war that they fought. After all it wasnt just the decepticons that damaged the planet, but the autobots too.

    So let's say the Earth loses the ability to support life (clean water, electricity, radiation, etc.) because of war, so everyone has to evacuate and move elsewhere to live.

    You're saying that if you found a way to make it support life again (i.e. turn the power back on, introduce a pathogen that gets rid of the nuclear radiation, clean the oceans), you wouldn't because you'd want it to remain a symbol of what happened to humanity? You wouldn't even try to start a long process of making your home liveable again because future generations need to look upon Earth and see it as a symbol of guilt instead of hope?

    It's a good idea, especially if season 3 is supposed to be a big change up (a la the rumored "Beast Hunters").

    I think your missing the point.

    Optimus in prime and bayformers movies has said that they caused the planet to die and so feel nothing but guilt for the part they played in what happened. There is a message there about the cost of war.

    But what good is there to the message if there is suddenly a quick fix.

    Earth is supposed to be their home now. Hell the autobots even said it them selives in the last episode.

    Did they say if the Omega Keys and Omega Lock were a quick fix? What if it's just a way to start a reboot of the planet that will take a while, but not as long as leaving the planet to self repair itself?

    Yes, they do consider Earth their home now, but it's difficult for 5 Autobots to remain hidden from the populace. And they know that if their presence is known, humans will try to take their technology for war and such. Would Optimus risk throwing this world into chaos with their presence when he could give his team and others scattered across the universe a home to come back to and rebuild? Would Earth be able to handle supporting its inhabitants and more if other Autobots come to the planet for support? What if more Decepticons come? Earth could be at risk for becoming another sacrificed planet of the Autobot/Decepticon war.

    I think I'd actually rather have this than more screwing around with relics for another season. It's been nearly 50 episodes; something that's actually a lasting game changer needs to happen.

    That is, if this does end up being lasting rather than meaning almost nothing a few episodes after the season finale like the Unicron arc.

    If Cybertron gets rebooted, we might start seeing new bots and cons making their way back home. I'd be all for that.

    A bit of a difference. Everything on Cybertron relies on energon. Its what keeps them literally alive.

    We don't need electricity to live,having electrcity is a luxury. Trees would have been a better analogy.

    If the upcoming seasons really are related to stuff like Beast Planet and Thundertron like the Beast Hunters rumor implies, a Cybertron worth fighting for would probably be needed for the setting.

    I'm guessing that maybe they do bring back Cybertron but all of the sudden ether Shockwave or the Quintessons take over the planet and use it for thier own needs and now the Autobots and Decepticons have to work together to get thier planet back.

    50 episodes is not 'so soon'. Don't worry though, hardly anything in this show sticks so it'll probably be dead again in an episode or two.
