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:

Agreed. Very hard to follow... and why is it called "Starscreams" if there's only one Starscream. Plus SS has always been a schemer, not a rambling homicidal maniac.

0.5/10

1 point for using Tidalwave. -0.5 for expanding on a single panel from DWs Energon comic.

It's not Starscreams, it's StarScreams because in the last panel, Starscream Screams

Wait, I think I've got it;

Starscream's on a rotating cog - if he doesn't want to get crushed, he has to transform and fly away (Ignoring the fact that, to the best of my knowledge, Armada Decepticons could fly in robot mode). He's trying to transform, but something, seemingly the hand that's supposed to be retracting into his arm, is jammed and keeping him from transforming. Like an idiot, he focuses entirely on that factor - hence the pushing on the hands and arms until he finally gets it to retract - instead of his surroundings, leading to his lower body getting smashed between two cogs.

Dont you guys notice him screaming as he gets crushed and the location happens to be a cleverly hidden location with a full view of stars in the galaxy.


he's screaming as his remains disappears into the star system hence the name starscream

At first glance, I thought it was a joke about a difficult step in the toy's transformation, but I recall Armada Starscream's hands being easy...in fact, the whole voyager-size toy was pretty easy.

I guess it's a nice stab at rationalizing why he couldn't just fly out; could 'Cons just fly in robot mode in the Armada comics? I don't recall them doing so, but it's been many years.

I was hoping this would tie into stuff his Energon ghost did after Dreamwave went bankrupt. (has someone done fan art of him sneaking up behind Pat Lee instead of Overrun, ala that cover of #31 or 32?)

Much as I want to like all of the last Mosaics before project's end, this one could've used a little more...something. Still, it was nice to see a Unicron Trilogy one for the first time in a while.

Sorry, I don't see any stars, but I do see Starscream screaming. I'll buy that.

Tough to make a whole MOSAIC out of this small piece. Still when other MOSAICS involve too big of ideas, I suppose some of them may have to cover too small of ideas.

Probably would help if we all reread the DW Armada and Energon issues before.
