Primax 984.17 Alpha (US G1 Cartoon)
In 1984 CE, the Decepticons under Megatron were stranded on Earth. In order to gather Energon for their consumption and use, they needed an efficient way to transport and compress them. Soundwave quickly formed the idea of Energon cubes to store Energon. The Decepticons first made Energon cubes out of oil from an oil rig in the United States with the intention to gather the Energon cubes to power a new space cruiser to allow the Decepticons to leave Earth.
