Prowl's "Y'know" line and his association with Praxus originate from War Within Vol 1".
Given his logical persona, I don't like him speaking like that either. I always felt he should be written like Data from Star Trek. Handled correctly, it would make a great character with lots of comedic value. That said, when I watch the 890's Trek movies, I imagine Kirk, McCoy and Spock as Prime, Ratchet and Prowl. Three similar charcters and their interactions are always enjoyable. Be nice to port them into Prime, Prowl and Ratchet.
Dreamwave, Tech Spec, Budiansky and G1 cartoon Prowl were not pricks. In fact, they were nice, approachable characters. It's Furman and IDW that made him a prick. I prefer his earlier non prick incarnations though at least Roche and Roberts made him cool. In fact they made him Batman. as a friend of mine once pointed out, the thing about Batman is, he's smarter than everyone else.
Anyway, apologies for my digressing. I'm just a huge Prowl fan and I'm tired of the flak he gets because of writers who never read his tech specs.
Nice mosaic with amazing artwork.
