I know you're looking for transparant ones buddy, and I'm looking into that, but I know you like dark themes, so maybe you'll like these!

depends on size and placement of your taskbar:
Large Icons:
No matter where the Taskbar is located, you only need 6805.bmp
Small Icons:
top: 6809.bmp
left: 6805.bmp
right: 6805.bmp
bottom:680 1.bmp
