Transformers Mosaic: "A Modem of Value."

Postby Richter » Mon Jul 09, 2012 1:32 am

The Universe of the Transformers is vast, and populated by many characters. Their universe is a large tapestry, made up of the stories and points of view of countless experiences that serve the larger whole.

These are some of those stories. This is:

It feels a bit cluttered and messy in term of art and story... But I like it very much. Maybe trim it a bit down in the future? Less is more.

Chop Shop, who's missing a few screws, is scavenging a graveyard for parts, and selling them to Shockwave. Which is actually a ruse for him to steal data out of Shockwave's computer as to what Shockwave is really doing.

Yeah, the last panel kind of lost me too. "Autobot State-secrets" might have more impact if I knew what universe this was set in: G1 cartoon? Dreamwave continuity?

Not that I'm complaining, since ChopShop always had the most unique personality of the Deluxe Insecticons, who're so paradoxically well known but obscure as to make them perfect Mosaic fodder. The art style was perfect for his goofiness, but am I the only one who always saw those four as horrifying, due to their only drawn appearance together being the the '85 mural where Earth is getting bombed so bad the damage is visible from space, and Venom starring in the last installment of those equally apocalyptic Kid-Stuff read-along stories?

Hope there's a few more Mosaics before the hammer falls for good!

I got the story, just not everything that was said. I guess I can say I dont understand the technical side of all of chop-shop's babbling.

I'm going to say this is set in IDW pre-war Cybertron. Every bot is Cybertronian, but those that work for the central government are identified as Autobots, thus there can be different levels of secrets.

State: Hot Rod misappropriated state funds for an energon bender at some resort.

Autobot: Zeta Prime is secretly building vamparc ribbon weapons to use against dissident Cybertronians.

Chopshop is one of my fav's. I didn't quite understand everything that was said, but understood the general meaning. Was Chopshop an extortionist? I know a few other Insecticons were.

The Deluxe Insecticons are featured in Micromaster miniseries. And there are some few shining moments where Chopshop steals his companions weapons right behind them backs. It's priceless.

Nope. The continuity is much more recent. What one piece of information would the Autobots absolutely loathe to have fall into Decepticon hands?

This is actually the prelude to a much longer piece I'd like to write for IDW, though I doubt they'd give me a chance to write it.

Still, one can hope. But until then, I'm going to keep on writing fun stories.
