Sorry but there's been another retcon.

Which particularly makes no sense because those exact same people will eagerly accept that of the three guys who turned into Sweeps, the one in front (Thundercracker) is Scourge. The visual narrative makes it Bombshell; it's not something that should ever have been debated, but it goes on and on and on, like when people will swear blind that the blue cassette on a MOSC Frenzy and Laserbeak is called Rumble. <head explodes>
Yeah, but if you show them this scene right afterwards they'll probably wonder why Cyclonus nearly runs over his formerly-deceased former self.
My point was simply that TF continuity is, shall we say, a less-than-precise science...to put it generously. We're really not talking high literature with meticulous attention to backstory and plot here. HasTak would probably happily retcon Cyclonus into the reformatted version of Devastator if they thought it'd sell more toys.
For the purposes of displaying your TFs just put whoever you want in and it's fine.

Hey - has anyone ever sorted their collection by colour? I was just thinking it would look really cool - a predominately red shelf; an orange one; yellow; green; blue; purple.

One may have been named only named a couple of months ago in the comics as Luna 1. (Swerve says, he hasn't "been on a quest since the whole Luna 1 thing. The Moonquest.") Presumably the second one is Luna 2. Otherwise, Moonbase One and Moonbase Two may describe the entirety of the moons. Surprisingly I don't recall anyone ever naming them anything more interesting.

Their names have never been revealed. It's possible that Cybertronians don't name their satellites like humans do. <shrug>

Also, the number of moons that Cybertron has varies between different continuities (I guess they're not multiversal singularities like Cybertron ):
+ G1 Marvel Comics: 2 moons
+ G1 Sunbow cartoon: 3 moons (only 2 of them had moonbases though)
+ Beast Wars/Machines: 2 moons
+ Armadaverse: 1 moon... it had a name! (Unicron )
+ Timelines: 4 moons
+ Aligned: 2 moons (and an asteroid belt)

Reference: http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Cybertron_%28planet%29

Sky Shadow: TFwiki redirects "Luna 1" to "Moonbase One" and treats it as a synonym for Moonbase One. <shrug>

I had the same thought last year

Still haven't seen one though.

Great minds?

Yeah, a friend of mine asked me to guess how she'd sorted her books in her bookshelf. My guesses went through alphabetical order, chronological order, size, etc. and finally she showed me - it was by colour. And it looks really good. Shops do it well too - like... Accessorise? (Does that still exist?) One of the best things about Transformers is their colours - someone's collection should take advantage of that. (If I have my own collection room when I'm back in Australia I'll do it and take photos.)
