Of course, they do. That was sort of the point in the original toyline/show and so it was for Kingdom, at least implicitly. People forget that in all cases of BW continuities (the proto toyline of G1 sequel, the classic show and Kingdom) they are characters from the future. The technology which made the Maximals and Predacons is centuries after the G1 era. They're not supposed to look blocky and geometric as much nor do they have that retro scifi Floro Dery look.
