    The Omnibots and the deluxe Insecticons (not their unit name) are both independent, galaxy-wandering mercenary units.

    The Omnibots do have a loose, but still adhered to moral code (doesn't mean that they've NEVER taken Deception energon though, or unsavory jobs from other species)

    The deluxe Insecticons, not so much.

    It's used as both money and fuel, Cybertronians are weird like that (rest of the universe thinks this also)

    I mean when you need that fuel to live, using it as money in a societal-collapse wartime era makes more sense than trying to mimic a human first-world monetary system that values matter with 79 of each subatomic particle just because we like how it has metallic luster and scatters all but yellow light.

    Don't know if I'd go with it as fully being head canon, but I somehow can't help hearing Necron 99/Peace's voice from the 1977 film, Wizards for Wingfinger.

    I have always wondered during the scene in TF:TM86 when Optimus was battling Megatron, in which was their last battle (one dies), Optimus had Megatron pinned and had him begging for mercy prior Hot Rod's interference, he hesitated to pull the trigger. But why the hesitation though? in any war when you have your enemy down, you just shoot you don't wait and give him the chance to get back up and fire, you take him without hesitation.

    Netflix's "TELL ME YOU FORGIVE ME" Optimus took over his brain before Netflix Optimus was a thing.

    Be fascinating to hear fan fiction to see how things worked out especially as Moonracer was not seen after the search for Alpha Trion episode and Bluestreak was not seen after the movie.

    Actually, this isn't specifically the universe of the G1 cartoon, but my own continuity with a different backstory, though admittedly influenced by G1.
    Give him a blue head and boom. But I do feel like it fits my depiction of Bumblebee, even before he becomes Goldbug.

    RID01 is set after Beast Machine.
    and the Alpha Trion from that series is actually Alpha Trizer, an older version of Cheetor.

    Additional thoughts: The Cons' common 'ground forces' are split between the Reflectors and the Battlechargers (who are the shock troops). Though given that the Devastation game that made them the ground forces was set in the G1 Cartoon I think the Battlechargers would of been a new addition to their army since the Autobots were the ones "ruling the road' till Megatron made the Stunticons to counter that.The idea here being the Battlechargers were them expanding on the concept. Given that the known Battlechargers Runamuck and Runabout are troublemaking morons they were probably recruited from the same detention center the Combaticons were held in. Freedom if they pledge or re-pledge their loyalty to the Decepticons.

    When there was still plenty of energy to go around and they were at their strongest the Seekers were broken up into color coded squadrons. Once energy became scarce and most were placed into stasis to conserve energy Starscream chose a handful to stay active and forming the trios we know today. Or maybe Screamer has his own personal squadron made up of the best seekers from the other squadrons. In the MTMTE 3-Partner we saw several of the Purple and Blue Squadrons who were brought out of stasis to attack the Ark.

    When Megatron infused the Nemesis with dark energon, Trypticon was brought back online and regained control over his body.

    • Ironworks and Zetar are Junkions: They're interning under hoist as part of a cultural exchange program. When pressed into battle, they exchange parts, form weaponry, and even combine when pressed.
    • Scoop serves as security detail for hoist and grapple. His targetmasters are actually his emotional support group, who help him recover from his time as a wrecker.
    • Doubledealer's various powers are upgrades come from his gigs in the war, They are...
      • -Radar and arm missiles- Wheeljack
      • Beast mode- Shockwave
      • -Bfg- Wreckers
      • Jetpack- Zarak
      • Knok- Autobot diplomatic corps
      • Scar- Soundwave
