I made these along with several other images of fan made characters. The color variants for normal and SG universe. Autobot insignia based on Autobot Secret Police insignia Worn by Nightbeat and presumably his subordinates in the SG universe. I simply recolored it sense the original version was black. This is the insignia for Autobots under the leadership of Saber Prime. Decepticon insignia based on Titanium War Within Fallen's toy. I also used the toy to create my version of Meltdown. If Meltdown was a Transformer instead of a human villain he would be something like the Fallen and of course being my favorite character I made him the leader of a fan based team of Decepticons. Maximal insigna based on the above Autobot insignia and the original Maximal insignia. In the fan fiction I wrote Saber Prime is actually the one who invented the Maximal tech so the original Maximal insignias carry his modified sword insignia. The normal Maximal insignia we all know from the Beast Wars wouldn't come till after his death. Predacon insigna based on Fallen's insignia and the Vehicon insignia which looks more like a face now with the flaming eyes. This insignia would be worn only by Professor Princess/Powdered Sugar who is a Predacon under the leadership of Meltdown. Professor Princess is a stolen protoform who was meant to be one of the first Maximals but was stolen and reprogramed. She wasn't brought online after her initial creation because of a flaw in the programing that Meltdown never managed to fix. This flaw makes her see her beast mode as a separate entity named Powdered Sugar. While in beast mode she acts completely like a horse rather than a Cybertronian. In robot mode she often talks to and pets the head of her beast mode completely unaware that it's just her right hand. BTW I hate Professor Princess from Animated, in fact I hate most Animated villains but I've made them much cooler as a team of Decepticons rather than lame humans. Meltdown is really the only one I liked. I do have made up back stories for all of them as Decepticons that allude to who they were in Animated with a Decepticon twist. Angry Archer for example to pay homage to his mechanical arm he has one arm that's a different color from the rest of him. The story behind it is that his own arm was cut off and he got a new one from an Autobot he killed with the same mold. I particularly like my twist on Angry Archer because it also kinda plays homage to Lockdown's character. Master Disaster sense there were homages to the Stunticons in his episodes and the snake theme he had going on with his helmet and the insignia on the side of his truck I gave Menasor Cohorda's head sculpt. Master Disaster rather than being able to control any Cybertronian with an RC remote he's basically Motormaster and the other Stunticons are just drones he can combine with. The all have Cohorda's head sculpt. I didn't have to do much to make Meltdown any better than he already was, I used the Fallen as a base so he's really the only one I didn't have to come up with some crazy Cybertronian way for his powers to work. Decided to add Angry Archer and Professor Princess Digibash to the thread sense I had mentioned them earlier. (Saber Prime and Meltdown will be the last ones I show.) Angry Archer is of course a classics Hot Rod because I don't like the Animated design. I did take Animated's bow though. I've modified it so the bow would act as the spoiler in vehicle mode though I've never actually digibashed the vehicle mode. The evil version I can't actually see the difference in arm color because of my color blindness but you can see where it helps me to use photoshop to look at the numerical value of the colors. Professor Princess/Powdered Sugar is half G1 Arcee half BWN Mach Kick. She doesn't have the proper insignia in the background because I actually made this image months before the Predacon insignia. Animated humans aren't the only names I reused as Cybertronian characters. Kicker is Generations Wreck-Gar with Armada Preceptor's head. He's called Kicker because... well... he kicks things. But this Kicker is a lot more like another Autobot motorcycle, Animated Prowl. A level headed cyber ninja, at least the good one is. SG Kicker is a lot more like his name sake. Kicker was sent to Earth to deliver the news to Saber Prime that to protect the Earth from ever again being used as a battle ground for war Optimus Prime was recalling any Cybertronian still living on Earth and wiping any records of it's location. Again kind of my own take on why the Beast Wars cast needed the Golden Disk to find it's location. SG Kicker was basically there for the same reason except Optimus only wanted to hide the Earth so only his army could use it's resources. Plus Optimus hates Kickers and banished him to live on Earth with Saber Prime who in case you don't know is human. Saber Prime only became a Prime because of cybertronian nanites that form his cybertrian body around him. No one else is able to use the power and it irritates Optimus so he sends Autobots he doesn't like to the degrading rank of following orders from a human. Of course the fighting breaks out with Meltdown's Decepticons because they refuse to leave the Earth. I've added Master Disaster who I talked about earlier and Colossus Rhodes. The Colossus armor was built by Meltdown to combine with Rhodes. The limbs on Master Disaster are just drones that he can control.
