Dreamwave continuity

Far from the civilized metropolitan titans of the north half of the planet, Kaon was inhabited by a radical citizenry unsatisfied with the Autobot High Council and its maintained status quo. It was here that the industrial creations, the smelting pools, were first used to melt down living beings, a practice other city-states found horrible and barbaric. Disaffected, unruly, and thirsty for slaughter, Kaon was an obvious location for the fomenting of Megatron's underground Decepticon movement.

Its capital is the fortress city of Kolkular.

IDW continuity

Kaon was known to be one of the worst places on Cybertron. Thus, Sentinel Prime was operating out there when Megatron and his fellow miners fled there. One of Kaon's notable features were a series of underground gladiatorial combats run by Clench. After Megatron killed Clench, he took over the games as a method of recruiting gladiators into the Decepticon army. After being freed by Starscream and Soundwave, the Decepticons launched an attack on Kaon, and took control of the city, using it as their base to direct the campaign against the Autobots.

Fun Publications Continuity

There are some smartnukes stored there. Over-Run sent one after one of Ramjet's Mini-Cons after Ramjet's defeat. Which Mini-Con is unknown, but we know it was a direct hit. Revelations Part 2

A fungus among us.
  • Primus (2006)
Kolkular is one of two distinguishable cities molded into the surface of Primus' planet mode, designed specifically to match its appearance in Dreamwave's The War Within comics and DK's Transformers: The Ultimate Guide. In Primus' robot mode, Kolkular ends up on the underside of Primus' heel, which is probably symbolic. The city actually has limited articulation all of its own, being able to "pop up" when in planet mode to better represent Kolkular.
The other city is the Autobot city-state Iacon, which, similar to the depiction on the Cybertron map in the Ultimate Guide, is placed on the opposite end of the toy from Kolkular. Its placement, however, is likely a coincidence.


Cybertron

  • Cybertron Primus (Supreme, 2006)
Yep, it was still there when the toy was released months later in the Cybertron toyline.

Trivia

  • Kolkular was first non-canonically mentioned in the short story Alignment. The Decepticon homeworld of New Cybertron included a complete re-creation of the domed fortress.
  • According to his bio, the Decepticon Lugnut from Transformers: Animated was called "The Kaon Krusher" and learned dirty fighting in the "Great Arena", clearly references to the city.
