No, not yet. My plan was to do some updates next week and make a new pack once it's all done.

Convoy
Based on the logos for "Transformers: Armada" and "Transformers: Robots in Disguise" from Hasbro, Inc. Left and right braces replaced with Autobot and Decepticon insignia, respectively. Bar replaced with Minicon insignia. Tilde replaced with Combatron insignia. Includes regular and italic versions.

Orion Pax
This is a techno-style font based on the "Robots in Disguise" logo from Hasbro's 2012 Transformers toyline. This font includes accented characters, the Euro, and other European glyphs. Includes bold and italic versions.

Version 1.5:
- Switch to OTF format
- Added OE and Per-Thousand glyphs
- Kerning cleanup

Destronic Grafitti
This is a revised version of Jim Sorenson's "Decepticon Grafitti" typeface, which is based on the vandalism-based writings of Runabout and Runamuck from the classic Marvel Transformers comic series. Includes full alphabet and some punctuation.

Special thanks to Jim Sorenson for allowing me to update and maintain this classic font.

Dai-Atlas
This science-fiction themed, lcd-like font is based on the original Transformers logo from Hasbro, except thinner and leaner for each of reading. Includes full alphabet, extended punctuation, and Euro. Includes italic and bold versions.

Is there a font similar to the one used for the "Regeneration One" title?
Maybe this is the same font used for the "more than meets the eye" motto in the original Marvel comics. Or maybe not, I can't remember.

I'm sure that one already existed, but it was a nice and easy project to get done, so I whipped one up today to add to the collection.

That was 'Eurostile Bold Extended'.

Morse Tech
A symbolic font based on some lettering used in Hasbro's Transformers during the Action Masters period. It's actually an extensive set of Morse Code...

Regen
Regen is a simple science-fiction font based on the logo used on the cover of the Transformers: Regeneration One comics.

Minor bump - the Optimus, Jhiaxus, Convoy, and Megatron fonts have been updated with new insignia glyphs and a lot of cleanup. (Figured the updates would be lost in the thread...)

Razorclaw
Based on the logo of the new "Beast Hunters" Transformers line. Includes extended characters, euro, and punctuation. The 'at' sign has been replaced with the Predacon faction symbol. Includes regular and hollow versions.

Cyberfall
Based on the logo of the console game "Fall of Cybertron". Includes extended characters, euro, and punctuation. Left and right brackets are the Autobot and Decepticon (G1) insignia, respectively. Left and right braces are the Autobot and Decepticon (movie) insignia, respectively.

Well, holy poop! I don't think I'm going to be doing a major 'redo all my fonts' run like that again any time soon. As of today (16 April 2013) all the fonts for Transformers are updated, cleaned up, and regularized. I'm now going to have a bit of a lie down...

Beastformer
This slightly gothic typeface is based on the long-ago logo of Hasbro's "Battle Beasts" toyline. Includes full alphabet, extended characters, euro. Braces and bar have been replaced with the Wood, Fire, and Water insignia.

Hellpoint
This science-fiction font is based on some of the plate markings founds in IDW's "Transformers" comic series. Includes full alphabet, extended character set, Euro. Left and right braces replaced with Autobot and Decepticon insignia, respectively. Bar replaced with Predacon insignia.

Possibly what's at the foot of this page? Sorry, not really familiar with the live movies.

Hi, I just found this resource while searching online. Great site and great contributions! The zip links appear to be down, is there a source where I can find these? I'll pm Jaynz in case this forum isn't regularly checked. Either way, bravo!

I'll fix the links later when I'm back on my own PC, it's just because a couple of pages got moved. Thanks for pointing it out.

Sadly, Neale (Jaynz/TFVanguard) passed away a few years ago.

Looked into it and I've enabled other file extensions for attachments, including zip.

Most of the commonest ones are in the archives in http://tfarchive.com/fandom/fonts/ or the final versions will be at http://www.pixelsagas.com/ (and his wife is still handling commercial licensing for those needing it).
