Transformers: All Factions by Gauntlet101010 Transformers: All Factions by Gauntlet101010
I dunno why, but I got it into my head to do vector-tracings of the various factions found in the Transformers. I'm a huge TF fan, so I already knew all of these existed and even had most in my personal files. But now I can resize them any way I choose ... no deterioration problems with vecotrs!

Added some Photoshop effects to make them more interesting to look at. Took three days in all.

These are all the various factions found in the TF series as well as some variants on the symbols presented. All are official in some way or another.

A cookie to any who can name them all!

Transformers copyright Takara

Edit: Welp, I just found an actual list of factions which makes having fun with this as a guessing game kind of a moot point. Of, well. The list has most of the interesting symbols and had I found it earlier I probably wouldn't have done this. Still, it didn't have all of them (yet) and I'll use their to fix whatever flaws mine have (as they were done off bad scans I found on my travells on the net).

1st row: Ancient Autobot (ehobby Blitzwing and 5 faces of Darkness), War Within Autobot, G1 Autobot, G2 Autobot, Transtech Autobot

2nd row: 123 Transformers Autobot, Gobots (Playschool) Autobot.

3rd row: Symbol shown in the G1 cartoon after Shockwave calls Megatron (some fans dub this "Ancient Decepticons and , in the end, why not?), War Within Decepticon, G1 Decepticon, G2 decepticon, Transtech Decepticon, G1 Toon Decepticon

4th row G1 Decepticon (shown on one picture of Galvatron done for some crap by the TV Magazine people), Galvatron't head from a DVD set (not a real "faction", but it's done in it's style, I like Galvatron, and it looks almost good .... 'sides Galvy is nutty enough to make the Decepticon's faction symbol his face. After all, Prime did it).

5rd row: Maximals (BW, BM)

6th row: Predacon BE, Vehicon

7th row: Brazil's Transformers (shown ont he logo instead of the G1 Autobot symbol), Cybertronian symbol (shown in the DW comic once and also in the Japanese G2 story, albeit drawn in a simplified manner), Dreamwave's Auto/Decpt icon mix (for Micomasters cover art).

8th row: Earth, Giant, Jungle, Speed planets.

9th row: Optimus (from the Brazil TFs), Gobots, Earth Defence Corps G1 Season 3 (as seen with ehobby Blitzwing), Dinobots, Mutants.

10th row: Malingus (TF Brazil), Quintesson (from ehobby Blitzwing, based on the dude who gave Optimus the answer to ridding Earth of the Hate Plague in season 3), Combatron, Blendtron / Unicron emmassary (identifies as such on ehobby Blitzwing), Unicron (from DW's Armada More than Meets the Eye comic), Minicon / Unicron (in TF Energon).

I'll probably add more that I've been given more to add later on.

Edit:
I feel the need to mention that, after seeing the work at the TF Wiki - [link] - I traced some of the symbols I made to match up with theirs.

This was made before that.  There's a few symbols that have been made since this was created that I'd have added.

The symbol for the Jungle Planet looks a lot like the Borg insignia from Star Trek, particularly TNG...

:facepalm: I'm not asking. It's obvious if you look at them. Still obvious with Soundwave in fact, but they've forgotten it with Prowl...

I think the blue icon on the top row is for the Wreckers. :)

Also, I think the Autobot Elite Guard counts for this one. ;)

Thank you. Maybe you should see my deviation. I drew Optimus from G1 and I posted a picture of Primus from Transformers Cybertron.
