The volcano was artificial
, but hardly fake. They actually drilled down to the magma layer to make the thing. It was pretty clearly explained.
True. But both Cody and Doc Greene used the word "fake" to describe the volcano.

Indeed. We wouldn't want a repeat of this...
If done right, maybe. Meltdown was the best human villain in that series, and the Headmaster would have been cool if not for his lame 1337 personality. Besides, G1 gave us human villains too.
Plus, I doubt we'll see any such villains in this show anyway. The Rescue Bots are designed for search and response missions, not combat. Bringing in 'Cons or bad guys would put our heroes out of their element. And, unlike Animated, in which this was a good thing, it wouldn't be a good idea since it would detract from what this show's primary objective is.

Couldn't the Decepticons make their own Dinocons and volcanoes?
They could. But why waste their own time and energy to create such things when they can just steal these readily available ones?
It's like in every other series. Why would the Decepticons bother to create their own energy sources when they can just raid the Earth of its own? It's much more efficient for the 'Cons to just take what they need instead of making their own.
If you've read Exodus, wanna read the War For Cybertron comic? PM me.
