The were developed a little later. Would have counted Cybertron for this if the Scrapmetals had come along much earlier in the series.

A) Hasbro had something else planned for the end of the show since the beginning
That's a very good possibility. Since Unicron's inclusion came about at a much later stage in the planning, I do wonder what Hasbro and Takara* originally had in mind for where this series would go before it was decided to shift to a Unicron plot.
* -- I say both since this series was a joint venture between the two and the first time both companies actually worked on a TF series together in near unison.
"When there's gold feathers, punch behind you!!"
“Critics who treat 'adult' as a term of approval, instead of as a merely descriptive term, cannot be adult themselves. To be concerned about being grown up, to admire the grown up because it is grown up, to blush at the suspicion of being childish; these things are the marks of childhood and adolescence. And in childhood and adolescence they are, in moderation, healthy symptoms. Young things ought to want to grow. But to carry on into middle life or even into early manhood this concern about being adult is a mark of really arrested development. When I was ten, I read fairy tales in secret and would have been ashamed if I had been found doing so. Now that I am fifty I read them openly. When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up.” -- C.S. Lewis
