    The Perfect Decepticon in the upcoming 4-pack is Archforce and was the first one made by Megatron-X, he was also the only one named by Megatron-X himself.

    Rodimus Prime/Hot Rod is the unofficial “Mom” of the cassettebots.

    He is the one bot close with both Blaster and Soundwave, so he is the one being who all the munchkins will listen too.

    Now I wanna see Hot Rod, Rumble and Frenzy get into all sorts of turbo revvin' young punk shenanigans so bad!

    Legacy Vector Prime is the character's G2 version that would've had a showdown with the Liege Maximo had the comics not been cancelled.

    How he'd come to existence? I dunno, maybe he could be a result of an alternate timeline Rodimus Prime getting into some crazy convoluted time travel escapades and ending up passing down the Matrix to some of those freaky early Cybertronians that would still use budding to bolster their numbers. Might explain why this version of Vector looks so much like Jhiaxus.

    I’m just saying with how protective the kids are of SoundWave, it stands to reason they would be protective of his best bud.

    I just love the idea of Hot Rod getting a call from Kup because they caught Frenzy and Rumble stealing shit and the only way they will calm down is if Rodimus comes to see them lol.

    Ah, gotcha! Though if it's up to ol' Rodders, he'd definitely want to be seen as the cool "mom", lol!

    No doubt.

    I mean if he is best friends with Soundwave? No way he is such a square he doesn’t help them get out of shit and back home.

    The AoE/TLK Dinobots are actually rather intelligent, and are capable of speech - only, they speak exclusively in Old Cybertronian and have not bothered to learn English like most of the other Transformers on Earth.

    This has always been how I wanted the sequel to AoE to build on them. Warriors so ancient they don't even have the technology to interface with wireless networks and cannot learn newer languages instantly, creating a language barrier. Their "Dinobot speak" would come from them slowly learning English from zero, struggling with grammar. Maybe even their names are just ancient Cybertronian that only sounds kinda like "Grimlock," "Scorn," etc. But behind it all are seasoned legendary knights...

    Why you don't see dion again/ why he wasn't rebuilt is because Alpha Trion used his parts to rebuild Dion and Erial. Like, he was just too badly damaged to repair so he used his parts.

    The writer of the script says he died.

    The cartoon never got into an answer for this issue

    but Orion and Ariel we’re not dead so there’s a chance that there’s a difference between that and Dion‘s issue

    At the dawn of the universe, six gods descended from the Higher Realms, three Light and three Dark. The Light Gods were Primus, God of Order, Quintessa, Goddess of Justice, and Gaia, Goddess of Life, and their Dark counterparts were Unicron, God of Chaos, Koh-Buru-Lah, God of Vengeance, and Tornedron, God of Death. For billions of years they fought each other, with neither side able to break the stalemate. Often left weakened by combat, they created servants to do battles in their stead, with Primus's Metrotitans, Quintessa's Quintessons, and Gaia's Primordials opposing Unicron's Junkions, Koh-Buru-Lah's Dire Wraiths, and Tornedron's undead monstrosities, reanimated from deceased combatants. Eventually, the status quo changed when Koh-Buru-Lah was able to destroy his counterpart, Quintessa, throwing the other gods into chaos. Seeking to restore the balance between the two sides before the Dark Gods could renew their offensive, Gaia recklessly pursued Koh-Buru-Lah and killed him before he could fully recover, forever earning the enmity of his Dire Wraith followers, who swore themselves to Unicron's service to get vengeance against her. As the remaining gods fought, she also managed to defeat her own counterpart, Tornedron, casting his remains into a newly forming gas giant in a proto-solar system their battle took place in, which would forever leave a red spot in the planet's atmosphere as a stain. Critically injured she was unable to help Primus in his fight against Unicron, and fell into a deep slumber, with a rocky world eventually forming around her. She charged the few surviving Primordials with defending her prone form, and many of them become immortalized in human legends as various deities and pantheons.

    In his battle against Unicron, Primus had managed to gain the upper hand, but a slight moment of hesitation over killing his former brother gave Unicron the opportunity to deal Primus a grave wound. No longer possessing the strength to kill Unicron, he utilized the only option left available to him: utilizing his link to Unicron as his counterpart and shattering his own mind to seal Unicron's consciousness away in Limbo. Like Gaia, he used the last of his remaining energy to transform into a planetoid shape, and went offline as his shattered psyche developed into five separate minds who would eventually become the Guiding Hand, the first five Cybertronians to arise from the Well of All Sparks deep beneath the surface of the planetoid.

    Each god has a different color of energon associated with them based on the color wheel. Primus's energon is blue, contrasted with Unicron's orange Dark Energon. Quintessa's yellow Quintessence contrasts with Koh-Buru-Lah's magical Nucleon, and Gaia's Rarified Energon contrasts with Tornedron's Red Energon. Each non-normal Energon has a different effect: Dark Energon gives its imbiber a massive power boost but drives them insane, Quintessence forms a sort of hive mind amongst those who use it, Nucleon massively increases power and allows for shapeshifting (though ironically, it has the opposite effect in Cybertronians, who are rendered unable to transform by it), Rarified Energon has healing properties in organic life forms and also stimulates the formation of organic molecules in aqueous solutions, and Red Energon reanimates the dead. Beings descended from Light Gods and Dark Gods feel invigorated when in the presence of a form of Energon derived from their respective type of god; conversely, Light God descended beings feel weakened in the presence of the Dark God Energon varieties, and Dark God descendants are physically burned in the prescence of Light God Energons. Mortal beings descended from Gaia interact with Energon varieties in the same way as Light God descentants.

    Though the three Dark Gods are relatively aligned in their goals and views, Gaia somewhat separates herself from Primus and Quintessa. She interprets her domain of Life moreso as that of Nature, and feels that the Gods and their direct creations are not the deserving masters of the universe, having arrived from beyond, and thus not being "natural" denizens of it. Rather than create life directly, she seeds various worlds across the galaxy with Rarified Energon, hoping that it would lead to the natural evolution of mortal beings, who have a rightful claim to rulership of the universe. She awakens 4.5 billion years after her defeat of Tornedron to find Earth formed around her, and learns from the Cybertronians present that the galaxy is now teeming with mortal life. But of them all, her favored "children" are the humans who formed on the very world surrounding her without any input or intent from her (the prevailing theory is that some Rarified Energon leaked out from a hydrothermal vent and catalyzed the formation of life, but it is entirely possible that Terran life developed independently of her as well). Though she is saddened by humanity's constant squabbling and warring, she accepts that it is the nature of mortal beings to do, and resolves to do her best to guide them into being a worthy, peaceful civilization, serving as a sort of motherly mentor figure, rather than a direct leader or god to be worshipped.

    Chop Shop was among the earliest recruits to the Decepticons, but he didn't do it because he believed in the cause. He did because he figured they'd be stopped pretty quickly, and he could rob them blind and run before that. The Decepticons would be imprisoned by the time they found out what he'd done, and if they noticed their stuff going missing before that, what are they gonna do, call the cops? It would be a quick, easy way to get some loot.

    A few million years later, Chop Shop is still with the Decepticons, too terrified to defect and get hunted down like the other traitors, and desperately hoping no one finds his hoard of stuff.

    Meteorfire is Jhiaxus’ brother. Not a fact that either willingly tells anyone. Also Clench is their ground-dwelling third brother that they equally don’t care for.

    Delta Magnus was present during the battle at Autobot City in the 1986 movie.

    I’d like to see a short story focusing on Snarl’s actions during the Movie and have it tie-in to the times he did briefly appear and why he was absent when the other Dinobots were elsewhere doing something else.

    Megatron in the 1986 movie of the Marvel UK timeline knew that he was to become Galvatron having allied himself with the future Decepticon years earlier during Time Wars.

    Galvatron from the 1986 movie travelled back in time to a parallel timeline where an alternate Time Wars was taking place to the battle he participated in as Megatron. And the Megatron he is now allied with is not his own past self but a clone of Straxus (who later goes on to kill himself).
