    Windblade didn't naturally have her overtly japanese stylings before coming to Earth, she looked like your typical average jetformer fembot. And then she became a filthy weeb reading trash japanese light novels and stylized herself off the main heroine of her favorite one. Yes it is cringe. But generally the autobots don't really care, she can do what makes her happy, and they got bigger fish to fry with the decepticons and all that.

    After the war, getaway became cybertron’s number 1 magician. He was known for being the best escape artist of all time. Wheeljack decided to use his knowledge of technology to become a pro league of legends player.

    This contradicts the Allspark Almanac, but I prefer to think that Omega Supreme was the only Omega Sentinel produced. Having there be more of them doesn't really affect the show or the Great War backstory in a meaningful way and just dilutes Omega's uniqueness. Technically, the Steelhaven has the same starship design as Omega's alt mode, but you can explain that by saying the ship was based on Omega or vice-versa.

    Considering G1 makes it clear that the Decepticons were the military hardware and Autobots were domestic, I have two conclusions:

    Warpath is actually a Decepticon who was able to tell what they were doing was wrong and decided to fight for the Autobots instead.

    The Omnibots and Tracks were the first generation of Autobots to experimentally upgrade themselves to war frames. (Hence their Mech Tech like tertiary modes)

    The Shattered Glass versions of the Stunticons are colored like the Autobots who impersonated them in in the G1 episode Masquerade (Motormaster like Optimus, Breakdown like Sideswipe, etc.)

    The SG Aerialbots are colored like Seekers (Slingshot like Starscream, Air Raid like Skywarp), except Silverbolt who has Astrotrain color palette.

    Also, all SG Stunticons are pretty the opposite of the their main-verse selfs. Motormaster is fully accepting of his limitations and always strives to the best leader of his team he can, Drag Strip believes in healthy "it's not who wins, it's how you play the game" outlook and so on.

    Except Dead End, even in the upside down dimension of Shattered Glass, gloomy nihilism is still his primary personality trait. It's a multi-verse constant, like a "fixed point in time" in Doctor Who.

    Revision and expansion of my G2 idea:

    Sometime after his resurrection through the human Ginrai:
    PXL_20210220_185031341.jpg
    Optimus Prime (in special armor) under took a dangerous quest for the source of the unstable energy, Nucleon
    Fans-Hobby-MasterBuilder-MB-11A-Black-3-750x750.jpg
    After being critically injured in a battle with the monstrous Metrotitan
    11212617_106-750x750.jpg
    He got rebuilt into a new body:
    stc01nb-nuclear-blast-03.jpg
    He never found the answer of who was the mastermind behind Metrotitan. In fact, the results of his quest are unknown, but still had dire consequences.

    His escalating battles actually caused splinterings across time and space.

    One timeline created was a complete living hell with hundreds of planets reduced to toxic wastelands.

    The Optimus of this universe strangely has a totally different set of memories that don't include being Ginrai or the Nucleon Quest
    mb04-gunfighter2-01.png
    He leads the few surviving Autobots, including the somewhat cocky, but truly reliable and trustworthy Thunderclash as his second-in-command
    mb16-lightning-eagle-01.jpg
    To survive the harsh environments, they had to adopt special armor which doesn't always allow much in the way of personal tastes, such as Sideswipe here
    reduced-galery_image_7349_11915.jpg


    Others got mutated into strange forms

    A "mild" case is Radioactive Menasor (although his mind is badly damaged, making him more of a rabid beast like Abominus in G1)
    daa9uhw-20abfc04-6033-4471-9047-82098b63b469.jpg

    The Decepticons sane enough to do so (relatively speaking), follow (and worship) Leige Maximo
    300px-Liegemaximo.jpg
    His forces are led by the cruel Skyquake (who is basically Galvatron to Maximo's Unicron, more a slave than soldier)
    250px-Skyquake.jpg

    While it's theorized that Maximo was the source of the catastrophes that befell so many worlds, no one knows the truth.

    There is also a third faction formed by clones a weakened Unicorn created using various alternate universe versions of Cybertronians

    Such this "Optimus"
    reduced-image_17211_7_1593621426.png
    And his "pet" Sparkeater
    images (1).jpeg

    This ended poorly for the Chaosbringer, and he was destroyed (and possibly consumed) by his creations.

    A hypothetical Generation 2 Rodimus would be colored like his Lost Light incarnation.

    Not 90s enough. How about a reverse watermelon? Bright pink body with two-tone neon green flames.

    Compared to Generation 2 Sideswipe, LL Rodimus is downright gaudy.

    His design maybe, because that IDW Rodimus design is pretty gaudy looking, but the color scheme itself? Dark purples and blacks, with some bright blue for highlights, is a fairly respectable color scheme, and at least he doesn't have his most vibrant colors that draws your eye at his crotch like Sideswipe

    There's a team of Decepticons specializing in the knowledge of mystical matters and the use of techniques such as Black Magic, Dark Science, and Machokon, among other arts, called the Necronomicons.

    I approve of the idea.

    But for that pun:

    I imagine Mindwipe would be a member (of these Necronomicons), if not the leader.

    Maybe some Nemesis clone.

    I'd say one of the Terrorcons, but they usually end up being on the less "learneded" end of the spectrum in most continuities.

    Tentakil is a member, but he doesn't really believe in the occult, he just likes luring virgin fembots for sacrifices.

    Any others?

    Necronomicons, transform and merge into...

    Ph'ngluim glw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn! Iä! Iä! Cthulhu fhtagn !

    Look up Dark Science on tfwiki. Bludgeon and Bugly helped Mindwipe with it. I really want Octopunch to be a member as well for obvious reasons and maybe Furman's Direwolf from Alignment for being the originator to the idea of Dark Science.

    I decided I wished to be forsaken by god, and did a quick 10 minute digibash (with most of the time being spent deciding how much watermelon I wanted) of the monstrosity
    WatermelonHotRod.jpg

    Also the exhaust pipes and spoiler would be green chrome because of course, with some slogan written on the cockpit of the vehicle mode because again of course

    I'd also add Universe Ramjet and Monstructor.

    The Reason Bigmos, Seasons, Skywarp, Santon and all the Transformers in Neo Have Beast modes outside Gaia is because they scanned their Bones in the Fossil CHamber on Cybertron.
