* Ultra Magnus was rebuilt easily when they found him dead. How come they did not try rebuilding Optimus when he died.

***** OK, here's what happened. The Autobots went to find some energy and the Decepticons followed. They got into a space fight and crash landed on Earth, where they lay dormant for about 4 million years. eventually, Teletraan was reactivated by a volcanic eruption, and revived Thundercracker. Thundercracker revived Megatron, and the two of them proceeded to revive the other Decpticons, who proceeded to steal lots of Earth's energy because they're dicks. Just before they did, Starscream fired a few farewell shots at the ''Ark'', which knocked Optimus Prime into the path of the revival beam, bringing him back online. Optimus revived the rest of the Autobots, who went to stop the Decepticons from stealing the energy and gaining an advantage. They failed, and the Decepticons blasted off in a spaceship bound for Cybertron, but Mirage sneaked on and took advantage of a fight between Megatron and Starscream to make the Decepticon ship crash into the sea. As thanks for saving the world, the governments of Earth banded together and gave the Autobots the energy they needed. However, the Autobots seemed to remain on Earth to protect humans from Decepticon evilness. As for why the Decepticons didn't try to build their own power plants, Megatron indicated that the answer was time: it's much faster for them to steal energy from a human-built solar power plant that it is to make their own.
****** You forgot one thing. It was SKYWARP that was revived first.

******We do see Starscream and Skyfire take off from Cybertron, and then the two of them explore Earth later, but in between that time, who's to say what happens? Maybe Starscream chills in Skyfire's altmode during the long stretches of interstellar travel and then gets out whenever they stop to study a planet.

*** Given the Quints' general dickishness, it's also possible they'd once kept organic humanoids as slaves, before their robotic technology grew sophisticated enough to replace those with proto-Transformers. They copied the humanoid anatomy of their non-mechanical slaves when they started building them rather than breeding or capturing them, because it'd become a tradition to keep bipeds as servants.

*** Given how G1 transformers sometimes refer in passing to robotic version of animals, it's possible they're not really mimicking organic life at all, but mechanical Cybertronian life forms that ''resemble'' Earth species via convergent evolution. That could also explain how Ravage and Laserbeak could have their animal-like anatomy prior to their arrival on Earth.

*** Heck, appealing to the maximum range of potential markets might be the reason they ''are'' Transformers. Mode-conversion technology might've been something the Quintessons came up with to adapt their products to clients' needs, and vehicular modes were a side effect of that.

* How the scrap can regular humans physically match transformers in strength? Sparkplug was seen latching onto Ironhide to keep him from shooting Spike. In Auto-bop, a train-rider teared off a metal bar to smash the control panels, in the same episode; many humans were seen flipping Tracks aside with apparently little-to-no effort. In ''The Girl Who Loved Powerglide'', the decepticon were seen struggling to hold Astoria in place, she also fended off Powerglide for a few seconds.
