Bot-Con Cyberglyphs translated by Leathurkatt-TFTiggy Bot-Con Cyberglyphs translated by Leathurkatt-TFTiggy

Description:
Once the Language of the Primes or Dynasty Cyberglyphs definitions image was finished , I decided to go ahead and put together the Autobots and Decepticons glyphs and put these up for people to see.

Like I said in the image above, I see no reason not to include these in Movie Verse canon even though they are actually from G1. I thought this might be useful and allow that much more diversity for OC's to be marked with additional symbols from one of the two factions (whichever faction the character is from, presumably) to help make them visually interesting and different from each other and from canon characters since there are only 26 Dynasty Cyberglyphs and only so many different ways they could be combined for certain characters without it looking too repetitive. Plus, these can be used in other ways as well, such as images with visible text or dialogue in the mech's native language. The Prime Cyberglyphs was a lost language by Optimus' time and it would stand to reason that the two sets of glyphs above could have evolved over time and became the predominant written languages.

It should be noted that, at least from what I can figure out from canon evidence, Transformers are born with the Cyberglyphs they bear, these are not chosen and added later, but inherited and "branded" in place when their chassis forms, not unlike with human birthmarks. What glyphs are there is dictated by the lineage and personality inherent in that particular bot's Spark. Additional Cyberglyphs can be etched or painted on later like tattoos, but the bot is very unlikely to know what they mean in the case of the ones from the "Language of the Primes", while the Autobot and Decepticon Cyberglyphs will be well known to them.

If anyone wants to see what I actually started with to make these files, have a look at the following links below:

Whoa, so, in short, this and the Primian language deviation are what the symbols actually mean?

Yup. The letters and numbers themselves on this set are canon accurate, as are the letters and the definition of the Prime Glyph (Q) on the other set. The names and definitions of the rest on that set are what I compiled from the research I did of the glyphs. The numbers on that set are extrapolated, as I stated in the description there.

So you're saying Starscream may not precisely know just what it was he etched onto himself prior to Revenge of the Fallen? That sounds...oddly appropriate, actually.

XD It's pretty much the truth too. All he was doing was copying the glyphs he remembered from the Allspark not knowing what they actually meant. That was actually covered in I believe it was the "Reign of Starscream" comics where it actually showed him clawing the designs into his armor. **chuckles**

Well even if he doesn't know what it means, the X on his wing does fit him - Warrior, I believe

*goes to check from Dynasty/Prime Cyberglyphs translated* Yep! And hell, that one little glyph had been bugging me for several years now too. Of course, now I'm trying to figure out what some of the other symbols on the ROTF/DOTM Target (okay, just Space Case...) toys mean... No idea what the fourth symbol on Mindwipe's wing means. (outside, left wing)

Yet Cosmos' glyphs don't seem to fit the Bot-Con Glyphs, even though they apparently spell out his name.

See what you've done?! Now my mind can't rest on this stuff! :lmao:

LMAO You're welcome, always happy to help. **giggles** Aside from the letter to symbol translations are all canon, the only one fully translated in canon is Q = Prime. The rest I went through and researched who was wearing what symbol (the ones they were "born" with) and established the rest of the translations from there. I may be updating with an extended version of both of these soon which will include numbers as separate glyphs on both lists.

The Decepticon alphabet looks like katakana and the Autobot one looks like somebody played connect-the-dots with the Yautja alphabet :P (I was fluent in Yautja when I was a kid... talk about geeky and unconventional. Conventional geeks would just learn Klingon.)

This is pretty cool, I like the texture you used! It looks like the letter texture used in the movies but at the same time it looks unique :thumbsup:

LOL Part of it is the Wiki, and part of it is just me watching the shows and reading the comics, so it's a bit of both. I've been a fan since 1984, so I've had a while to research it all. **winks**
