Anyone could be easily fooled into thinking that this is a Shattered Glass-related story, but it isn't.

Seeing as how that's Magnificus and not SG Perceptor (who both share the same toy), who would the evil counterparts of Cliffjumper and Brawn be? Black Cliffjumper and Black Brawn (or even the black-colored version of Jipe?), perhaps?

Nice to see Fansproject getting some action :)

Overall a nice Mosaic, although a bit creepy :D

A really stupid title considering one of the biggest events in comics of the year is called blackest night

Dang, I was hoping for a Shattered Glass, but when I saw Nemesis Prime, I thought differently. They really should use that idea on a Transformers episode in the future, but if I had my own Magnus armor and Nemesis Prime figure, I'd do a stop motion of it. Other than that, one of the best mosaics I've seen in a long time! :APPLAUSE:

Oops, wrong Blackest Night :P

Still, awesome mosaic! :APPLAUSE:


Agreed, I wonder if this could inspire anyone to re-purpose a Nemesis Prime into Black Lantern Optimus, or Shadow Commander into BL Magnus? anybody with photoshop want to try putting the BlackHand logo on them?

Niiiice...the Hellraiser quote reminded me of an old Japanese fan-comic where some guy transformed an Optimus Prime figure, and it turned out to be the Cenobite puzzle box.

No, it wasn't hentai.

HA! What a great idea! So inappropriate to merge Transformers and Hellraiser! But strangely, oh so right...

Yeah the Pinhead quote at the end is a nice touch, it's a good tone to set with Nemesis Prime, given just how nasty the Cenobites are it really adds a deliciously and genuinely EVIL touch to Nemesis Prime!

Perhaps, but it doesn't detract from the awesomeness of this Mosaic! Whats in a title anyway?

Great mosaic. Nice to see Magnificus in some sort of fiction.

Few questions regarding which series it's set in:

The statement that Brawn is dead had me thinking this was set in either the G1 cartoon or Marvel comic after the Movie.

The Dead Universe obviously suggests the IDW comics.

But didn't Nemesis Prime die or is this another Transformer who has taken the name since.

Personally, I'd love if it were set in the Marvel UK future but i know it's not.

Great Mosaic.

Can't this just be a standalone fan story?

Thanks for all the comments guys, I had great fun working on this one! I'm uploading full-res versions of each panel on my DA since people have been asking elsewhere, find them here: http://blueshift2k5.deviantart.com/

I kept continuity references vague just because lots of continuity seems to scare people. It was written as a post movie cartoon/comic piece, with the Dead Universe as a 'classic' G1 version of the IDW one, but you are free to slot it in where you like!

I've put all the panels up in large resolution on my DA account. I think the Brawn one ended up being my favourite personally!

You can tell the difference between them by the faces. SG Perceptor is black like the toy but has an actual face like the cartoon. Magnificus has a mouthguard like the toy itself, since he's a homage to its Microman origins.

Personally, I just find Nemesis Prime wearing UM's armor as a disguise fittingly creepy. Considering G1 UM pretty much treated it -as- his body, it's like he's wearing his skin... freaky. XD
