    Did Transformers have any kind of entertainment back on Cybertron like we have on Earth? It'd be cool if Cybertron had it's equivalent to Earth's Broadway or Hollywood. You think there was any kind of music there too?

    IDW's gone into this a bit. They had television (Roller watched it a lot), but judging by Thundercracker's fascination with Earth TV they never had a lot of sitcoms or anything. Blurr and Drag Strip were professional racers, of which Swerve was a huge fan of. And then there were illegal gladiator pits that Ratbat profited off of.

    Oh, and Mirage's backstory mentions hunting, so I guess that too.

    Skullgrin was once an actor you know...granted it was a B-Movie.....and on Earth. but still. It's something.

    also there was the gladiatorial combat. I assume people went to it and were entertained.

    In Exodus, there's casinos, amusement parks, and stand up comics. Since there are artist class, there are likely art museums as well.

    Well, with the amount of Fembots around, there would have to be other forms of entertainment that included them....

    I'll just let it sink in.

    Well, Rattrap did offer to take Tigatron to a bar where the servers go without their chestplates...

    Speaking of Rattrap, a few times during the series he can be seen playing games on the base computer before OP sends him off on some mission or another.

    It was Silverbolt he made the offer to. Tigatron had already been blasted into space by the Vok probe earlier in the season.

    If the issues regarding fembots weren't so stupid in IDW, I'm positive the comics would've at least hinted at Cybertronian strip clubs or maybe even brothels.

    Well, megatron was supposedly a gladiator. That's pseudo roman entertainment.

    Probably not. Even if fembots just existed, sex wouldn't.

    The gladiator matches were a form of entertainment. It wasn't civil and they were discontinued.

    He's still trying to remove that blemish from his past. It's not every day a Cybertronian gets away with making a pR0n film

    hehe

    Well the Transformers have never watched soap operas before, neither have they seen internet memes too. They do have theme parks and clubs with serving bots minus the torso plates. And from the few issues of IDW that I've read that feature a pre-war cybertron, there were diners and there might have been TVs, I've not read any issues with TVs yet.
