One thing that's bothered me about Transformers since I was a kid, is the War and Transformers lifespans lasting millions of years. In both instances, it seems too long in my opinion, especially when young characters like Hot Rod and Blurr are supposed to be over 4 million. The Marvel comic made it worse by saying new Transformers could not be created without the Matrix and we all knew the Matrix was stranded on Earth for 4 million years. It also suspends disbelief in the case of Cybertronian myths. It takes away from the mythical aspect of supposedly ancient artefacts when the average age of Cybertronians is millions of years. Fall of Cybertron was worse as it implied Transformers alive today were alive during the time of the dinosaurs over 65 million years ago simply to explain the Dinobots alt modes. At least Beast Wars addressed the dinosaur issue by having Megatron, Terrorsaur and Dinobot scan underground fossils. IDW had the Transformers lifespans at thousands of years old in the early comics which I think works better. Along with the fossil scanning for dinosaur characters, these would negate the need to have wars and lifespans last millions of years in future series. What do you guys think?
