Will it ever be explained why the Cons for the most part of bigger than the bots?

    I'm curious as it seems almost all the Cons are huge compared to the Bots.

    ??? Perhaps this would be funny if:
    A) I could read it and understand it.
    B) Wasn't an old overused joke.

    I don't understand how you aren't banned for such bad grammar.

    I think it's because the Decepticons were built specifically as war machines to protect Cybertron, and the Autobots where the civilians/ordinary workers. Then something caused them to split into the two factions, and they've been at war ever since. Not exactly original, but it makes sense, imo.

    Or perhaps the Decepticons upgraded themselves to become the master race over the Cybertronians. Also works.

    And once again Spiderus wins a thread.

    I llke to think the Cons were the Cybertron military.

    Omega Supreme is a little, teensy bit large though. Still your point is valid and, beyond a character design point of view where making them larger and more imposing reinforces their roles as antagonists, a more interesting in-setting explanation would be that they simply build themselves that way to some extent.

    This. Or for easy reference- Decepticons= Military hardware
    Autobots= Factory workers/scientists/nerds

    I'd also posit that the Decepticons are fewer in number, so what resources they do have go towards making each individual an awesome war machine since they expect to have to go up against multiple Autobots every time they fight.

    The Autobots, on the other hand, can have Energon farmers, space bridge technicians, scientists, engineers, and administrators instead of all being soldiers. The Autobots want a civilization, after all, and obviously don't have to throw all their resources into war. I mean Bumblebee didn't even have full-power stingers until "Transwarped".

    Butchering a language is not necessarily akin to minor spelling errors...
