[2]The planet Cybertron, as seen in the original series. Not pictured: Realistically sized buildings.

Cybertron is the home planet of the Transformers and (usually) the body of their creator, Primus. Cybertron is (almost always) a shining metal, technological world; a planet of towering future cities without end and vast metallic plains, spiraling metal mountains and bottomless neon-lit chasms. Battling over control of Cybertron and its resources is frequently the motivation for, or origin of, the Transformers' epic wars. Beyond these facts much about Cybertron can differ between continuities, see individual entries below.

This world is older than you can imagine. It has sailed the starscape...tending budding galaxies...forever a buffer tothe approaching darkness. And now its in your hands.
