A few months back, a call was sent out for artists and colourists interested in working on an all new Transformers project created by the managers of "Transformers: Mosaic." We had a fantastic response and have been able to recruit some incredible talent from the fan base. Everyone has been working very hard on this project with some very impressive results and we are now at a point where we can share a little bit more about the project.

So, without further ado...

Even in the most peaceful of times, when the people are happy and safe, there are those that would bring misery and suffering unto others. Those that would seek selfish gain. Those that would plunge the world into darkness. But, there is always a light to ward off the dark. A beacon of hope for the helpless. A symbol of justice that watches over all. There is always......a Prime.

Patrolling the streets of the capital city of Iacon, the newest link in the Prime Legacy, Optimus Prime, keeps an ever-vigilant optic over the citizens of Cybertron. Armed with the power of the Matrix of Light, Optimus Prime has the ability to create any object out of pure energy, and uses the accumulated wisdom and skills of the Primes before him to battle the forces of evil, wherever and whenever they prey upon the weak.

No one bot stands alone, and there are many other protectors of Cybertron who have dedicated their sparks to upholding justice. As Optimus Prime hunts down wrong-doers, he is joined by these heroes, each with their own unique abilities and talents. Together, these "Bots of Honor," strive to maintain the peace that has blessed Cybertron for many meta-cycles.

But, all good things must come to an end. Although the various villains that Optimus and his friends battle, dangerous as they all are, may seem random and un-connected, there is a dark force rising that could threaten the whole of Cybertron. Will Optimus Prime uncover the truth about this hidden threat before it's too late? What will the consequences be, not only for our heroes, but for every Cybertronian on the planet if they fail?

In 2011, get ready for action and adventure like you've never seen as everyone's favourite 'Robots in Disguise" do battle on a whole new level!



There are still a few slots left for artists and colorists, so if you're interested in contributing to what is set to be a memorable project, get in touch with us at bots.of.honor@gmail.com.

I like the toned down animated look. Megatron looks amazing.

I love the art and the concept. Will be looking forward to it!

The only thing I DON'T like is Grimlock with a cane. Any robot with a cane is a terrible idea. Hated it in the movie... hatin' it here. (No offense to the BOH artists... pointing my finger at you, Michael Bay!)

Robots with canes.... :BANG_HEAD:

After just rediscovering the awesomeness that is TF:War Journal I am pretty excitied by this. Seeing new Mosaics is always a pleasure, so anything cool in that vein is pretty much a win. I like the concept of Grimlock being a dinosaur both literally and figurativly.

Im not at all keen on the Grimlock look, but will wait and see end product.. Primes got a bit of a Voltron look there, looks good. Whats gonna be the deal with Galvatron? Is he gonna be a future Megas or a whole new character?

I really like this. I love the idea of Fan Art and having it displayed for everyone to see. Love it!
To also be a bit of an art snob it;s nice to see quality art. Good work!

This sounds great. Not sure if I'm reading into the description correctly but it does sounds like the Bots will be like the super-heroes of Iacon and the Cons would be the super-villains. Very interested in how this plays out. sounds great and looks great.

If the different designs for Megatron and Galvatron means they are different character than I'm really happy about that. Never liked Galvatron.

Love the crotchety take on the Grimster. I always welcome some new ideas and it is about time he be more than just a dumb brute or a intelligent leader with a speech impediments. Like some one said earlier, he is a Dinosaur figuratively here and I love it.

Sounds stupid to me. If I want super-heroes then I'll read superhero comics, watch superhero movies and TV shows, and play superhero videogames.

IMHO Transformers are not superheroes and never had been superheroes and every time they try to be superheroes they suck.

Is there any particular reason why people have to keep filling in the "old man bot" position with anyone other than kup?
Is this their way of being ironic? Primus... :roll:

Better not to call them "super heroes" but rather "super robots" which unlike super heroes, they do kick ass.

I have decent hopes for this, but I'd prefer it if they took a lesson from the King of Braves' handbook.

Now, don't start pulling the GEEWUN card. Everyone is entitled to an opinion.

*edit*
Forgot to mention, I really like Optimus' design here. Beats the spark outta the Transformers Prime design, and it probably would have fit better too. Flames aren't too garish either.

Whoa! Kudos to the artists who drew these paintings! My favorites here are Galvatron, Optimus Prime, and Megatron. Can't wait to see more coming through! :lol: :APPLAUSE: :APPLAUSE: :APPLAUSE: :APPLAUSE:

Well, explain why Animated was a somewhat success? The citizens of futuristic Detroit viewed the Autobots as superheroes. And once and a while, a threat. :lol:

Looks good so far! I also always love the idea of Galvatron and Megatron being two seperate guys. They work well to compare/contrast eachother.

I agree. What might be an interesting concept is for them to be brothers in the same way 'Streaker and Sideswipe were, or even Op and Magnus in RiD...the similar designs could lend itself to that easily.

Interesting, nice artwork but I'll never understand why Wheeljack gets so much love.

Forget Kup, the only good old bots were G1 Ironhide, Vector Prime and Animated Ratchet.

Kup and Alpha Trion should never have happened.

An old Grimlock could actually be great if he was done like old Bruce Wayne in Batman Beyond where he still has the attitude but you can see he's embittered because he's not capable of the feats of his youth. He still manages to be badass on occassion though.

Admittedly I may have phrased that wrong. I understood it was sarcasm. I meant that you are insulting people whom have a negative opinion to this.

My point is that, just because we don't like it, doesn't mean we're all "G1 was better" stereotypes.

My point still stands. Tons of other bots would have been just fine, but they went in favor of being ironic. That hurts my trust in the writing of this comic.

So... Optimus Prime is a Green Lantern.

If that's the case here's hoping there's some Autobot (preferably Dinobot) equivalent of Terry McGuiness in there. Or would that just be Jazz?

Ironhide being the old man would be fine, but who really cares about Kup? Kup was just a replacement to Ironhide.

I like the new take on this. The Transformers civil war can only be done so many times, as with all the Transformers personalities. Nice to see some variety.
