I don't think we've ever seen an Autobot be merciless before. Very nice piece all around.

It's nice to have a mosaic of this quality again. I've felt like many in the past month have not been as good as they were before. Probably because originally they had to really pick and choose and now enough are being produced to not need such a filter. But it's nice to see a really well done one again, one i actually care about. good job.

Wow i never thought id see an Autobot just blast an injured bot like that. I like this guy. Who is that though. He looks familiar but i can figure it out.

the colorscheme reminds me of Windcharger, but the... "mouthpiece" thing got me stumped, as well as the visor thing.

anyone who knows who this one-bot killing machine is?

From what Goribus has showed me, it appears to be Micromaster "Retro": http://www.tfu.info/1990/Autobot/Retro/retro.htm

This is definitely one of the best Mosaics thus far. It tells one heck of a lot of story in just a few panels, it shows a side we usually don't see, and finally (and best of all), it even leaves room for debate.

Hasn't this Autobot become what he hates ? In mercilessly executing a Decepticon begging for his life, hasn't he crossed the line and become a selfish murderer, himself ? Did he not choose his own vengeance over justice ?

And regarless of the questions I just raised.. "You could have said No". Is a powerful and very true quote.

To him, this is justice. He may be doing Decepticon like things but he believes that one must fire with fire, in a sense.

Besides we have seen Autobots willing to give no mercy before, see the original movie when Prime was ready to kill Megatron, despite his begging for mercy.

Now this is one Autobot who takes the theme song literally!

'Autobots wage their battles to destroy the evil forces of the Decepticons!"

That doesn't mean that it's not as wrong as it is when a Decepticon does it, though. Ends, means, justifications yadda yadda.

That guy is Retro, a micromaster combiner, and if you read his MTMTE page, you'd now where this Mosaic got it's inspiration.
