The IDW Comics universe has had such a different take on G1, one that's now significantly represented by the Generations toys, so they share a forum. A modern take on a Real Cybertronian Hero. Currently starring Generations toys, IDW "The Transformers" comics, MTMTE, TF vs GI Joe, and Windblade.

Asking the question because the humble bundle round 2 left off in a cliff hanger.
The others finally catch up to Brainstorm at the point in time when Megatron was built. They convince Brainstorm not to go through with killing Megatron but Rewind shoots Megatron in the spark instead. Not wanting the Functionalist future to happen, Whirl (because he hates the Functionalists more than Megatron) takes the .1% spark Brainstorm had harvested on Luna-1 and puts it into Megatron's body. Meanwhile, the Lost Light's engines have run out of power stranding the time travelers in the past. Rodimus and Cyclonus go to Unitrex, a city famous for developing space travel technology, and modify a generator to recharge the briefcase to return home, but little do they know they actually are on the Lost Light when it was originally built, which accidentally jumps into space. Turns out the whole trip was a predestination paradox, everything they did was supposed to happen. And we see the Functionalist future was persevered as an alternate universe.
