A Seed is a device made by the Creators and contains elemental Transformium that is the primal material of Transformers. It functions by being primed, then detonating, turning all organic matter around it into molten metal. Despite being on the small side, to the extent a human can carry one about with little difficult, their small size belies their power. When they go off, it’s with the blast-range being equivalent to that of a human tactical nuke.
Age of Extinction film
Around sixty-five million years ago, the Creators used the Seeds as part cyberforming initiative on thousands of worlds, to create Transformium, with the material being used to construct Transformers. On Earth, this led to the extinction of the Dinosaurs. However, for whatever reason the Creators didn’t take all the samples, and some Transformium remained present on Earth. Eventually human scientists discovered it but were unaware of its true nature. This changed following the encounter with the Transformers where the scientific applications were uncovered. After the Battle of Chicago, Kinetic Solutions Incorporated was forced to mine Transformium either from the deposits on their world or from dead Transformers. This saw Darcy Tyril being dispatched to find new deposits for KSI who sought to find new sources of the material. At the time, Harold Attinger of the CIA allied with the Cybertronian bounty hunter Lockdown hunting down Autobots in search of Optimus Prime to return to the Creators. In exchange for the CIA’s assistance in capturing Prime, Lockdown would give them a Seed which would then be given to KSI for deployment in the Mongolian desert, where they would mine the Transformium for a century. Unbeknownst to them, the reborn Megatron intended to take the Seed to forge a new army of Decepticons, and get revenge on humanity at the same time by using it in a fully-populated city. Ultimately, the Autobots managed to stop the Decepticon plot, and afterward Optimus took the Seed into space to hide it to prevent its power from being abused for evil. Age of Extinction
Ask Vector Prime
In Tyran 609.23-PX Kappa, Lockdown arrived on a Decepticon-controlled Earth to demand that Optimus Prime be handed over to him. When both Megatron and Sentinel Prime refused, Lockdown offered Sentinel a protomatter seed in exchange for Optimus. While Sentinel was sorely tempted by the deal, Optimus used the opportunity to reignite Sentinel’s cold spark. Sentinel proceeded to pretend to hand over Optimus, ambush and defeat Lockdown, and capture Lockdown’s ship. Allying themselves with the Dinobots, Sentinel and Optimus waged a long guerrilla war against the Decepticons, eventually restoring freedom to Earth and revitalizing Cybertron with the seed.
