I remember there are some G1 cartoon episodes telling the story that Autobots and Decepticons fight against each other on both the earth and Cybertron because Decepticons plan to create Menasor while Autobots plan to create Superion to compete with Menasor. As we know, they have to get to the central computer on Cybertron in order to let the new Transformers have souls.
I also remember Autobots never go to Cybertron when Wheeljack is creating Dinobots. They simply collect some metal materials and start doing some engineering stuff. Then, all the Dinobots are successfully created, they can transform, and they have their own thoughts.
I have got totally confused. Do all the Transformers need the computer-looking Transformers creator to give them soul in the first place? If so, then how come Dinobots never need to go to Cybertron?
Who can explain it to us? Thanks in advance.
Ok while the way you worded your question was confuseing I think you are trying to figure out if Transformers need to be givven life by the super computer Vector Sigma.
Many fans have asked that question because they misunder stood what was said in the episodes that showed the creation of the Dinobots ,Aerilbots and the Stunticons.
The idea in the G1 toon only was that Transformer's were programed
for life not givven life.
In the episode "The key to Vector Sigma" Megatron seeks to created a car group so he seeks out the super computer in the center of Cybertron that programed most Transformers for life.
He did this because none of his troups were smart enough to program a TF body for life.
On the other hand the Autobots did have Wheeljack that was capeble of programing life at some levels like he did the Dinobots.Althou they were not very advanaced thinkers.
Later when the Dinobot Grimlock gains super inteligence he programs the Technobots for life.
