In the context of the Insecticomics, the characters are not toys, but actual Transformers. Just really small and living in a human's apartment.
Unless they're in the suburbs of Pollyhex. The fact that they're mass-produced and sold as toys by humans doesn't bother them, and toy stores
are an accepted way to increase the size of one's army. They also never question why there's characters from pretty much every generation
running around, or how, say, Waspinator and Thrust exist simultaneously. Or why Vector Prime can teleport but he carries a rubber sword.
Basically, the whole thing doesn't make much sense and 'internal continuity' are words unknown. Welcome to the Insecticomics.
