The Technobots functioned as an independent unit on Cybertron until 1987, when they travelled to Earth and met up with Optimus Prime's main forces. They are red, orange or brown with white highlights. The five combine into Computron.
In 2012 they went on a secret mission for Alpha Trion. After the Dweller was destroyed, the Technobots spent months down in the tunnels below Kalis, mopping up most of the remaining Trans-Organics. In 2014, Scattershot returned to Earth to help coordinate the attack to free Autobot City from Decepticon control.

While the Technobot team utilizes the same combining technology earlier used by the Aerialbots, Stunticons, Combaticons, and Protectobots, Computron is one of the few combiners with only one consistent combination. This is due to several of the smaller Technobots being different sizes when forming a leg or arm. Lightspeed and Nosecone are consistently the left and/or right legs, and Afterburner and Strafe are consistently the right and left arms. As Computron, the team's group dynamic allows them to create a super-intelligent gestalt whose mind and thought processes have been compared to "500 supercomputers". Although sometimes late when arriving at a conclusive decision, Computron's intelligence makes him the smartest and most strategic of the Transformers gestalts.

Since the post-movie season is NOT canon, the Technobots were not built by a super-intelligence Grimlock. They were an independent unit on Cybertron during the Lost Years, and arrived on Earth in 1987 to assist Optimus Prime in the battle against the Decepticons.
The Technobots are a technologically advanced group of evil Autobots on Cybertron.
