Ehh, not much story but it is nice to see the combiners in their toy design.

Absolutely no plot. Just pretty artwork. It's exactly what they claim the Bayverse to be, yet I can sit through 2.5 hours of those, gladly. And I could skip ever seeing this, again.

I know Mosaic can be fantastic, I've seen it. Why 95% of them end up being this pointless...nothing, is beyond me.

This explains the absence of the Autobot heavy hitters during the Battle of Autobot City back in 2005 (Iirc, this was slightly tackled in the compiled adaptation of IDW back in 2006/2007.

I like it, gives you a more in-depth look then the one large page IDW did for the comic. :D

None. I'd like to see some of yours if and when you figure out how to submit them, to see if you can do better.

I've wrote a hanful of Mosaic's, not this one, though I doubt the ones I have written are "stellar". Anyone's curious, I favorited all my stuff:
http://duke-of-luns.deviantart.com/favourites/?catpath=/

Sadly since the project is ending, I don't think they're taking any more submissions.

Anyway, I will agree on one hand that some Mosaics do exist for the art and little more. A couple Guiltor Mosaics I wrote could qualify because well, no one's going to do anything with the character.

However, in a sense I think that's ok, because it does hit a certain sweet spot in the brain to see certain X character do Y thing. Using Guiltor as an example again, I wrote two Mosaics as nothing more than a fight scene because action is action, and joy can be taken from seeing good art.

This Mosaic definitely falls into that category, I like it because it has good art, and it has a couple character moments. It doesn't really impact my opinion of the characters, but it reminds me that Combiners are cool, and Superion never used his shield that I know of in any media, so I like that aspect.

Could the story have been just a tad deeper? Yeah, but it's hard to get across a complete idea in one page.

Anyway, this is not meant to be a rant or anything. A lot of work goes into a Mosaic, and I always try to find something to like about every Mosaic ;) .

I wrote this story originaly for the Animated movie Project, but that was canceled.

It explain indeed why you don't see them at Autobot city and I just love a good fight-scene. ;)
