Decorative - Transformer Icon

Description: After countless hours of custumizing my Dashboard, something was missing. Then I thought, why not make a Transformer widget that contains some of my favorite transformers. I'm a huge fan/collector and this will put some final touches to my Dashboard. So, I made what you see! May the 80's live on!!!

Enough completely useless widgets. If someone else here wants to put a picture in Dashboard, they can get an image viewer widget or drop a different image file in your other widget.

hey! isn't dashboard meant for partially useless things anyways! widgets are supposed to serve one simple function: this one happens to serve as decoration.

would be better if you could get the masking on the images right.

Utterly pointless.

Especially since this user does nothing but post widgets consisting of single image tags. And that godawful "AppleDeath" widget.

Thanks for the feedback! I'm already making a new version of this widget that will add a couple more Transformers and fix the "i" button.

Also, on a side note, that "godawful "AppleDeath" widget" should have no bearing on this widget. Why waste your time and bring it up in the comments? I've spent some good time learning how widgets work and developing them. Feed back is always appreciated, not bad mouthing others. If you have helpful ideas to improve my widgets, please share. Do not bash me for trying. In closing, if you don't like my widgets, then don't download them! Simple as that!

I'd like this better if the masking wasn't so terrible and the images weren't as huge. I mean really, how lame is Optimus Prime with a ragged white border around him?

Fun idea, very poor execution. It's just sloppy all around. Spend some time polishing it up at the very least. It'd be nice to see some sort of extra creative or useful touch to it, too. Like a random Transformers quote every time you open Dashboard or something.

Suggestion to make this site load faster: limit filesize on the icon/preview. This one's over 200k.

That said, I have no problem with "image widgets." A universal image widget is NOT the same as one that's pre-loaded. Especially since this site doesn't have a separate section for downloading images tailored for Dashboard viewers.

I don't mind useless decorative widgets if they look nice.

....But please, Transformers? Are they really worth bringing back after all these years?

(No rating because I'm not a Transformer person to begin with. I'm strictly BagOfHammers.)
