Cybertron from the original cartoon series
Cybertron from the original cartoon series

Cybertron is the home world of the Autobots and Decepticons in the assorted stories in the fictional Transformers universes. The capital of Cybertron is the Iacon Hub City and serves as the base of operations for the Autobots. Other cities are Kaon (the Decepticon capital), Perihex, Antihex, Uraya, Polyhex, Vos, Tarn, Nova Cronum and crystal city (destroyed). By the time of Beast Wars, a city known as Cybertropolis supplanted Iacon as the planet's capital city. The Armada comics introduced a city known as "Cyber City", and the Energon cartoon had a city called "Central City". In the IDW comics, it has been rendered uninhabitable by the war. There were also other series-specific locations, such as the Crystal City in the original animated cartoon series and the Dead End (a wasteland of ruins inhabited by the disabled, deranged and derelicts of Cybertron) in the Marvel Comics.
