The Technobots are an Autobot sub-group from the Transformers franchise; typically shown as rivals of the Decepticon Terrorcons, they are capable of combining into the mighty Computron.


Generation 1

Animated series

In The Transformers, the Technobots had one of the more unusual origins for the Autobots. During a period of heightened intelligence, Dinobot Grimlock created the Technobots from components within Unicron's head. He then transferred his increased brainpower to Computron, completing the Technobots and enabling them to engage Abominus and save the other Autobots.

IDW Publishing

In the "Combiner Wars" line, Scattorshot has the ability to form a Combiner without the other Technobots known as Betatron.

Fun Publications

"Ask Vector Prime" revealed that the Technobots received their Sparks from the Dark Energon of Unicron, a feat well beyond what should have been possible at the time but that was made such by Grimlock's enhanced intelligence. Despite this dark origin, their Sparks proved to be noble.


Shattered Glass

In the Shattered Glass reality, the Technobots came into being through alternative means, as a set of villainous Autobot geniuses. The group later attempted to imbue Grimlock with intelligence, but only succeeded in destroying their own sanity. Optimus Prime, amused by this change, made no effort to correct it, though he unwittingly set the stage for the Technobots to be lured into Alpha Trion's camp.
