Autobot Info

Cars are a huge part of geek culture, and nowhere is this more evident than the Transformers franchise, a comic/toy/movie line that has spent the last few decades dazzling us with stories of cars that turn into frickin' robots and then pound the motor oil out of one another. You've got your good guys, the Autobots, and then there are the bad guys, the Decpticons.

The folks at - you might be familiar with their work on the Evolution of the Batmobile infographic - are once again doing their part to ensure that cars get as much attention from the fans as sexy starlets, this time by means of a complete rundown of the cars that comprised the first-generation of Autobots - the ones from the original Transformers animated series.

It's been noted by some diehard Transformers fans - myself included - that there are one or two inaccuracies here.  The Batmobile infograph, it should be noted, wasn't perfect either - but it was super-cool and the most accurate information on the subject to date, and the same is true of this.

I agree. Most jarring one, aside from Optimus Prime, is Bumblebee. They used Goldbug's Robot form for Bumblebee and Bumblebee's Robot form for Goldbug.

And yeah, technically Goldbug and Bumblebee are one and the same, but Bumblebee only went under the Goldbug moniker while using that specific design.
