Transformers Mosaic: "I Couldn't."

Postby Richter » Mon Jul 23, 2012 2:24 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:

Ah yes, "Whatever happened to Huffer?" is one of those eternal Movie questions that can only be addressed through fanfic; or did that draft of the script leaked almost 2 years ago say how he died?

At Botcon 2000, I saw fan art of him facing down G2 Bruticus in answer to that query, but this is a lot more insightful.

Was this by the same guys that did all that fanfic+mosaics about Jhiaxus creating the Duocons shortly before the Arcee experiment, playing off IDW continuity? They made Flywheels seem almost too disturbing for my tastes, but played up his particular insanity hinted at in his tech specs enough to make him a more unique character than when he showed up officially in the UK book.

Mosaics will be missed, but there's always DeviantArt!

:???: WHAT?!?!? This didn't really make much sense. Huffer's a complainer sure, but suicidal....thats a stretch there guys. And to those confused I think the artist is imlying some type of slit wrists leaking energon. Correct me if I'm wrong.

And the Decepticon at the end appears to be a Duocon combiner "Flywheel" if I remember correctly. His size in the last frame is confusing, the forced perspective of being at the end of the car wash alley isn't excecuted very well. Makes him look like a tiny robot up on a shelf close to Huffer...and what does flywheel have to do with pestering anybody. I think a better choice for this (if you were going to go with the whole suicide theme) would have been Mindwipe.

I've enjoyed most of the Mosaics in general but this ones just a little MEH. Whatever...

I really liked the idea behind this one. Whatever happened to Huffer in the movie?

Don't understand the connection with Flywheels. Is the carwash connnected to some comic story from the past? Carwash of Doom?

Flywheels, who is implied to be the one who sent Huffer the messages.
Huffer it seems got depressed and slit his wrists to kill himself.

I'm pretty sure the car-wash is purely to make this the equivalent of a human slitting their wrists in the bathtub.

Though car-washes do have negative connotations in both continuities: just as the comics had Ratbat's Carwash of Doom, so did the cartoon's most idiotic episode 'Prime Target' feature a car-wash trap that Lord Chumley used to catch Jazz. If I were an Autobot in a continuity in which either of those stories actually happened, driving by a car-wash might just make me want to kill myself too.

Yes, it was Simon and me.

And you could check out the art section of this forum, to find more projects, like The Lost Seasons, Unknown Soldiers and Seeds Of Deception.
The Jhiaxus/Flywheels Mosaics by Simon and me belonger to the latter, which is our take on the IDW+WarWithin continuity.

:shock: Huffer topped himself?

Im fairly certain the car wash is paying homage to the "wash and roll"" from #31, there's a Blackrock sign.

The death of Huffer at the hands of Flywheels is the last act of the "friendly rivalry" between Simon and Novastorm73. They have been "at war" since the day Simon included a reindeer in a Christmas Mosaic and, as Novastorm73's favorite character is Huffer, Simon tried to off him in every way he could.
Simon even designed a Beast Wars Huffer with a reindeer alt mode.
And, of course, Simon's favorite character is Flywheels, which he wrote and penciled more than once (see his DA page!).

Thanks for sharing the background. It makes sense now and adds humor and depth to the piece.

Huffer died during the battle of Autobot city. In the third season episode Dark awakening Danielle names off 4 Autobot laid to rest in the Autobot funeral barge, Ironhide, Ratchet, Prowl, and Huffer, Maybe they ment to say Brawn since he died with the other three. I would love to read a story of what was going on else were in Autobot City during the battle.

Simon knew but he decided that the dialogue allowed for Huffer to have died shortly after the battle and not during the battle.

Sadly, no: there are bits here and there. On the DA pages of the two guys, in the comments to Simon's Mosaics (the Xmas ones)...
