    Dinobot, Rhinox and Waspinator were in CR chambers that protected them from the quantum surge. As for Tigatron, Airazor, Blackarachnia, and Inferno, all of them came from the stasis pods. It somehow protected them from the quantum surge.

    Well, all the new characters introduced in the TV show after Season 1 were transmetal (or partly so, as in Silverbolt's, Quickstrike's, and Transmutate's cases). However in "The Gathering" comics we saw normal transformers, transmetals, fuzors, and transmetal II's. I guess the transmetal transformation just happens at random.

    Yeah Megatron transformed him in the Transmetal Machine using the special core thingy i cant remember it been so long sinced watched. Black Arachnia used the same-like device to provide her transformation. Dino-Bot's transformation also caused Cheetor to get struck by the transformation beam and he became Feral Cheetor or Cheetor Transmetal II.

    Dinobot 2 was a clone of the original Dinobot after the original Dinobot was killed off.

    I have no idea what the criteria for going Transmetal were. As for not getting a new body though, I don't think it had anything to do with coming from a stasis pod. Remember, Optimus lost his body in the Transwarp expolsion so Rhinox transfered his spark to a blank protoform in a stasis pod.

    Only those who were there at the beginning were Transmetalized. Those who were protoforms who activated later did not become transmetals. Why? never explained. Rhinox, Dinobot, and Waspinator were in CR chambers protecting them.

    It was simply the original crew members, who weren't being destroyed in lava, or weren't in the CR chambers being restored.
    Not from a storyline point of view, but I think the main reason for the changes was as a selling point, to re-imagine, and update the look of the original characters, so as to make new toys to sell.

    Lol, of course it's all about the toys. Plus they did look cool. I mean Rattrap turned into a mini car and how dinobot had to ride on him like a car in one episode.
    Cheetor looked more like a jaguar with mini jet engines, but I still liked it over that hideous TM2 form.

    Really I liked TM2 form better than his TM1 form.
