Transformers: Dark of the Moon arrives on Blu-ray and DVD, thus completing fans’ home video collection of Michael Bay’s Transformers trilogy.

Now that the entire series is available for home video movie-marathon satisfaction, we thought we’d follow-up our Transformers: Dark of the Moon character guide with a look back at the entire trilogy and put together a massive compilation to all the Autobots and Decepticons that have been featured in Bay’s Transformers universe (for better or worse).

We’ll start with the original Transformers (2007), move to the sequel, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen (2009) and end with third chapter Transformers: Dark of the Moon.

We’re leaving no gear unaccounted for, either – from the indistinguishable robot clones to all the silly bots that pop up in each film, to the different versions of popular characters we saw in each installment – we are literally striving to provide you with a “complete” guide to the Transformers movie universe. It’s been exhausting “research” putting this all together, so we hope you enjoy.

  1. Please revive Wheeljack with his G1 look and let him take part in battle. Claim that Perceptor revive him. I’d like Cliffjumper, Brawn, Prowl and Cosmos to pit against the Decepticons Thundercracker, Skywarp, Astrotrain and Blitzwing. This time show Dinobots and Sky Lynx against Predacons (now including the bad comedians Apeface and Headstrong) and Blackarachnia and the Insecticons.

  2. Big screwup introducing brawl as devestator in first movie.. Also,,the 2nd movie was way better than the third… And please don’t use dinobots,insecticons,or destructicons .. They are lame.. I wud go old school.. I wud show something with energon or maybe the ninjabot that was made by humans that the decepticons stole and used against the autobots.. Was it nightingale??.. Also.. I liked Soundwave original voice way better… Peace
    .

  3. Great job on the site!!! I wanted to say that the fallen also has the telekinesis power and I’m pretty sure shockwave turned into an ugly purple colored gun originally.. At least I think it was him.. Again,, great job on the site.!!!

  4. please add cliffjumper,inferno,wheeljack,and Prowl. Thanks ^^

  5. Does anyone remember the old transformers movie? it was supposed to be set in 2005 and I always wanted Hotrod to be my car when I grew up. What about Unicron ? the planet transformer who ate everything and turned megatron into galvatron ? Sick !

  6. Those weren’t Insecticons that Scalpel had sent through Sam’s mouth and nostrils. Those were simply scrap drones, while the REAL Insecticons were the actual tiny, robotic insects (like the one Sam decapitated in Egypt when he and Mikaela were hiding from the Decepticons).

    • They were both insecticons , most insecticons are scrap drones.

  7. Also, the pictures are switched up from Crankcase and Crowbar.

  8. The picture you posted for grindor was the protoform rampage at that part grindor was well and truly dead (Optimus riped his face apart)
