    I feel like maybe they're retonning the creators with Quintessa. That or she's like Quintus Prime and created them to create the transformers or something like that. She created the knights of iacon and optimus and maybe megatron then created the creators then created the transformers. That is alot of creating

    They retconned so much that I don't even know what's cannon anymore. I feel as if the events in AOE never happened, this movie would have made the same amount of sense.

    There are two possibilities besides what you're suggesting-

    1. Quintessa started out organic, but extended her life by rampant augmentation until she became some sort of organic metal lifeform.

    and 2. TLK and AOE take place in different universes that just so happen to have parallels.

    This is why more tie-in stories/comics, overseen by John Barber, are entirely necessary at this point. Let him be the continuity king for this universe.

    Considering Quintessa claims to a Prime and goddess is pretty much the same as Sentinel Prime's claim about Primes. Not to mention creator hand is a organic version of ancient Transformers in ROTF. One can infer the Creators became the Primes that consider themselves creator gods of the Transformers.

    Where does Primus fit in? He created the Allspark. Much like Unicron an entity that became a planet.

    Not if they make him the Will Corona Pilgrim of the Transformers/Hasbro Cinematic Universe. Maybe.

    that COULD be true, or the Bay-verse Quints are "oldest" beings in the universe and created mechanical light fe first and believe that they are the deus ex machina and see all other life as their slaves

    It's pretty possible that Quintessa is the head creator and that she has other creators working for her take care of tasks she wouldn't be able to do. Also Quintessa leader of the Quintessons isn't that much of a stretch.

    Yeah, I doubt she is the only one in existence. Also, I suspect she was once organic at some point and only because a living machine later on.
