Gender I'm fine with. Reproduction is something I really think the property could use for a world building sense. Sex is comletely unneeded.Burnout V4 - Free papercraft energon cubes made by me
For me to fully accept this setting the Cybertronian race, and indeed all life on Cybertron needs some way to reproduce. The well of all sparks doesn't do it for me because too little information on it exists. Also being a sole place where new life is born on a planet isn't believeable. What if that place had been hit by a natural disaster over the billions of years the planet existed? No, a sole place for reproduction for all life on a planet is stupid.
But sexual reproduction is not needed in this franchise. I know what I would do to introduce reproduction but I won't expand on it here.
I also don't think the concept of romantic love is required either. I wouldn't mind if the Cybertronian race developed moe familiar love (ie love for siblings and parents). But the concept of sexuality isn't neded.

If there's anything Transformers needs more of, it's robot testicles.
Yeah no, Transformer bisexuality just sounds horrible.

The more we try to shoehorn human concepts as we understand them, the more we make the Transformers more human, and diminish the impact, AND the POINT, of making them mechanical life forms in the first place.

These are two adult concepts going into shows that are directed towards kids and/or young adults.
Let me ask a question: Is it better to imply sex like Beast Wars did or do we really want them to tackle both issues and royally screw them up?
If they can do it with maturity, I would say all power to them, but if they go by it like immature teenagers with over-the-top hormones, I would so noooooo! Don't do it!
If you can't be mature about it, stop it.
Edit: Especially since we are talking about sentientt machines who have different concepts of sex and sexuality. Heck, sexuality to them could be different vehicles forms or types, and sex could be a spiritual melding and nothing more.
