Many will write this off as being garbage, but I seriously think Transformium is one of the best fictional concepts in the Transformers brand. It makes sense not as a real life substance, but as a fictional in-universe material, which is far, far more important than realism in a brand dealing with gigantic, transforming, alien robots. Before you blow this off, hear me out. First, not enough Transformers fiction attempts to explain the physical material Transformers are made of. The fact Transformium even attempts to do that as an honest explanation is commendable. Second, in the Movieverse and many other continuities Transformers gain new alternate modes by scanning. This even happens in the first episode of More Than Meets The Eye. To do this Transformers need to be able adapt their internal and external structure, their color, and their texture to their alternate mode. A programmable metal explains how they could do this, as by realigning the Transformium molecules the Transformer can change its mechanical structure, texture, and color. Additionally, it does not need to contradict the Allspark origins in the first film. First, there's no reason there can't be more than one way to create a Transformer or create Transformium within a continuity. Transformium is simply the physical material Cybertronians were made of. The Allspark is what programmed them and made them living beings. Now it's true the Allspark is capable of turning Earth machinery into Transforners, BUT it's possible the Allspark energy is capable of programming metals other than Transformium, and it's also possible that just like the Seed turns organic life into Transformium, so too can the Allspark energy turn terrestrial metals into Transformium, and so the Allspark mutations were altered from Earth materials into Transformium-based machines. I'm not saying they couldn't contradict each other, but they don't necessarily contradict each other automatically. They can actually compliment each other. Finally, the KSI transformations actually make sense. The Creators were a highly advanced civilization. Whether the Creators or someone else made the Allspark is up in the air, but it was also undoubtedly made by some advanced intelligence. It's logical that the Creators had a level of expertise far beyond that of the humans at KSI, and that they would be able to engineer the complex transformations of Cybertronian Transformers. The humans lacked such expertise and wouldn't be able to engineer such complex transformations. Also, I doubt KSI cared if their creations had the complex Cybertronian transformations. They simply wanted the robots to change to vehicle and back. With that considered, the cube transformations made sense. I can understand not liking the KSI transformations or having a preference for traditional transformations; I myself like both. If you don't like Transformium that is fine. However, Transformium does not ruin the concept of Transformers by any stretch; it expands and enriches it. I'd also argue that Transformium and the KSI transformations are not any more ridiculous than Frenzy suddenly gaining a new body from being exposed to the Allspark or the Allspark being bigger than a house, yet it can shrink to the size of a box and be carried by Sam. In my opinion it makes perfect sense in-universe as a fictional concept, which in my mind is what is most important. I hope Galvatron carries his transformation abilities into future films, and that his transformation remains unique among the Decepticons given that his drone troops were largely if not entirely destroyed in AOE. I actually hope the concept of Transformium carries over to future Transformers shows and comics. As a fictional concept it is vastly underrated and receives way too much hate. Do you agree? Disagree? Are you open to the idea, but you just don't like how the KSI transformations were executed?
