I was told (and damn if I can remember by who) that the "Triangles" were
originally supposed to be versions of the Kat-logo, but were rendered as
"triangles" when the character models were simplified as the show went into
production. I think I've got a couple of drawings from H-B somewheres that
show what they were *supposed* to look like, and any of us who've seen
Christian Tremblay's "T-Bone" sketches will note that he still draws the shoulder
flashes as Katlogos rather than the more familiar triangle-type-things.
