Generation One (G1) Autobot Cartoon Avatars, Buddy Icons and Profile Pics for Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, Bebo and Other Applications

The Generation One Autobot icons below appeared in the cartoon series from 1984 to 1986. Their names have a double digit after them indicate the year of their debut. History and most of the artwork were courtesy of Adam Botch the Crab’s Transformers Box Art Archive. More information on each Autobot can be found at the archive or Wikipedia. In the latter, there a pretty good sized entry for most of the Transformers! It’s all very fascinating if you love the franchise, though rather violent with the comic book sagas where Transformers have their heads blown off, literally!

I have added a bit more punch to most of the artwork scans (i.e. a tad more contrast and saturation). I have also converted them to 256 pixel square pictures, with the graphic as large as possible, for use as avatars, buddy icons and profile pictures. You can use these pretty much for any application, including blogging avatars, since most don’t need a graphic as large as 256 pixels. Facebook and MySpace tend to max that out.

To get an icon:

  • Click on the thumbnail you want to get it at full size
    (there is NO grey trim on the downloadable picture).
  • Right click on that picture and save to your computer.
  • Upload it to your Facebook or other profiles.
  • Click the Back button on your browser to come back to here or click the thumbnails below the picture to move on to the next picture.
  • Come back another day whenever you feel like using a new one, or download them all now!

Transformers G1 and Movie Facebook Friends Tagging Meme Posters

At the bottom are four Facebook friends tagging memes of the Transformers.

The top one is from the movie Revenge of the Fallen, while the others are from the old so-called Transformers G1 (Generation 1) cartoons. I grew up with the G1 set, but that is not why I like it more. There is just way too much detail in the new robots. There aren’t easy faces to recognize and all their parts are so detailed it looks like one good punch and the whole robot would fall apart.

The middle one is of G1 Transformers, Autobots and Decepticons.

The third one is of G1 Autobots.

The bottom one is of G1 Decepticons, to tag your BAD friends with.

The graphics used for the G1 tagging poster is from Botch’s Transformers Box Art Archive, probably the greatest collection of Transformers cartoons out there! Wow! I can spend days on that site! The detail and completeness of the collection is phenomenal, although I’d have added a bit more punch to many of the scans (i.e. a tad more contrast and saturation). However, if you’re thinking of introducing this site to your kids, just be warned that there is at least a smattering of expletives there which I have come across. That’s not so much my criticism as something to take note since I am directing people to the site.

If you would like to use the poster below for tagging your Facebook friends, please:

  • Click on the Transformers poster you want below to get it at full size.
  • Right click on that picture and save to your computer.
  • Upload it to your Facebook profile.
  • Tag your friends.

I left out Ironhide and Ratchet, two popular G1 and new movie characters, because their old robot forms were just ugly! If you want to know more about any of these characters, Adam Botch, on his site, has the box scans. Wikipedia even has lots more information and a Google search, sometimes with the word “transformers” added to the name, should get you the page as the first or second search result.
