Okay, think I've established myself enough as a crazy whacked out fan to make an elaborate yet possibly pointless theory thread here...
We have MTMtE with Rodimus and crew en route to find the Knights of Cybertron to try and right the wrongs of their world, They haven't been seen for millennia, even as far enough to make many disbelieve them, and for folk like Drift to believe they've evolved into rays of light
My thought, my very terrifying thought:
The Knights are the Quintessons
The Quintessons in one canon or another, are the creators of the transformers, if they could have been in this instance, then ponder it a moment
They create the Cybertronians, or at least lay the seeds and leave quick enough to fall into mythos, far away and forgotten, the only trace a drawing on a wall on a world that Wheelie fell onto... Was it just the loneliness that made 'the Jangle man' as detached as he is now?
Imagine at the end of Rodimus' adventure, to come so far, to find the Knights, and the Quintessons about turn and take his presence as an excuse to take over their experiment once more?
Don't mind me, it's half 6 in the morning and I had a nightmare full of delirious irony.
There's very little to support this theory other than looking for something that is older than the transformers themselves, that hasn't reared its head and which unearthing could cause one member to try and reach back to the past to stop them leaving in the first place?
Please leave thoughts and Rung referrals at the bedside =0
