I've been thinking on some of the comments, and made some thoughts. Feel free to share. Okay, we all know that Bee is going to get his cog back, because, well, it's vital to the character. However, this doesn't have to be the end for MECH's -- and Starscream's - plans. In order to make a Transformer, our MECH pals need three things (besides metal components): 1) Energon: Once provided with information via Starscream, MECH knows about the substance, and will probably find it (although I do not know why Starscream didn't just visit previous locations the Decepticons were mining ... I'm guessing either A) heavily guarded or B) depleted of Energon). 2) T-Cogs: Yes, Bee will get his back, but all that Screamer has to do is lure a patrol of flying Vehicons into a trap, MECH takes them down and voila! 4-7 T-Cogs for the taking. 3) Spark: This is the only thing I need help with. In G1, Screamer went to Cybetron to steal Sparks in order to activate the Combaticons. How were the Constructicons and Dinobots created? I don't remember the episodes ... did Wheeljack and Megatron had "spare sparks"? Or did they not use any? Anyway, in case it's the former case (Scramer going to Cybetron), then again, 4-7 sparks could be recovered (perhaps even see Shockwave in the process). CLONES, COMBATICONS, OR CONSTRUCTIONS? Clones: Considering the fact that Screamer needs 1 cog for each clone, it's safe to assume that, unless MECH creates cogs from scrap, an army is out of the question ... unless we're talking about Starscream clones who ... do not transform. Also, if they need one Spark for each one, how the hell are they going to find all those sparks? Combaticons: With Bruticus gathering love in FoC, and Screamer being the creator of the Combaticons in G1, they're the safest bet. Also, it would be an amusing irony to have the Constructicons be made in order to counter the Combaticons, unlike in G1, where it was the other way around. Constructicons: They're the first Combiners, and Devastator was the first large SOB of the TF cartoons. They're classic, and could be the ones that will be made.
