    I never understand why Cybertron in all of the continuities is a burned out planet? I've never seen in any continuity Cybertron in a good condition except The Golden Age era. In the Movies Cybertron is a burned out waste land in G1 Cybertron is nothing but a scrap land. Is there a reason why the writers always intend to decide that Cybertron will be a waste land?

    Thanks

    If Cybertron was a flourishing planet with unlimited supply of energy, what reason would they have to come to Earth?

    Plus, the robots themselves wouldn't really be called "Robots in Disguise" now would they?

    Not in all the continuities. In Animated, it's fine. In Beast Wars, it's fine.

    Cybertron looked pretty good in Animated.

    At least in continuities where there is constant warfare. Don't forget how potentially long lived Transformers are.

    In G1 it was million years of warfare. In AEC several tens of thousands of years in the Minicons exodus and arrival on Earth is to come by. In the films what kept Cybertron alive was taken away. In the Aligned Continuity family Cybertron is dead and poisoned.

    If I remember, in A/E/C Cybertron is perfectly fine. Heck, end of the show stuff usually happened on it. Also, it's been started already, why if their planet was full of boundless energy and could support them would they ever leave?

    actually in cybertron, the planet was in pretty good shape

    ....

    despite being inside a black hole...

    in japanese continuity cybertron got blown up aside from maybe a third or less of the planet.

    It started as a metaphor for the growing spectre of resource scarcity and environmental damage in the 80s, and has remained as such, along with as a powerful warning of the harvest sown in conflict.

    This is exactly the reason that I would go with. If everything on Cybertron was perfect, why would the Transformers ever leave??
