opus is soundwave.
pretty interesting soundwave origin story,aswell as explaining why magnus is always a prime recolor.

Well thats one way to explane why Soundwave has a prime like head. I kinda like the idea.

I'm not really digging the story idea on this one. For me, Magnus and Prime being brothers is pretty weak, but that thing about Soundwave is just pushing it too far.

In the last panel, is Laserbeak blowing up?

Hmmm. Opus is Soundwave eh? And they are "brothers" because they were built on the same assembly line. I also found it strange that when Magnus takes his helmet off hes got a prime head with a human face, and the helmet has a mouthplate over it. Wierd.

Creative idea but it was too much of a stretch for me to believe.

I liked that, in modern non TF fictions such as Family Guy and Robot Chicken, SoundWave a pretty decent guy.

His G1 roots give us little reason to doubt that in down time he wouldn't be.

So to be honest, this may not be the way I'd tell the story, but I like the idea of SoundWave having nobler roots. Maybe even just using the Decepticons as an ends to some unknown means as is often hinted.

...

This is without a doubt the worst Mosaic ever. A rudimentery understanding of the Transformers you're writing about and drawing should be a requirement to do these. It's like these two Jokers had no idea who the 3 characters were or their connection. Which in the case of Soundwave is absolutely nothing.

Here's another nice tidbit for you. Soundwave was created before Optimus Prime left Earth in every form of the G1 fictions since G1. If this didn't have a Mosaic on it I'd swear it was a troll.

And I RRRRRRRRRRRRRRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGGGGGGGGGGGGGEEEEEEEEEEEDDDDDDD!!!!!!!

:shock:
I don't want to sound harsh or anything, but that's the single worst piece of shit ever commited to a visual medium.

even if you get past the "story line," the art is okay at best and i found it difficult to follow the text. i ended up reading part of it out of order.

Did it ever occur to you that they weren't trying to fit it into any particular canon? And exploring other fictional possibilities would make them trolls? Wow. :roll:

Then maybe you should have kept quiet. Nobody charges you a dime to read these. If it's not to your taste, then the "back" button on your browser can make everything right again-- without you having to shit all over someone who didn't do anything to offend you personally.

Nobody expects everyone to love every Mosaic produced, but there's no bloody reason to respond like an arsehole just because you didn't like it.

I think it's SW fixing Buzzsaw.

Interesting, but i found it a bit far of a stretch.

Wow, there's some pretty unnecessary vitriol here. It's not like these creators killed your first-born child or anything. The great thing about these Mosaics is that the creators aren't tied to what anyone may or may not consider canon.

I used this in my personal canon when I played as a kid; you know, that Prime and Soundwave were somehow long-lost 'brothers'. I think it was due to their similar head structures. I remember trying to convince people of this in school back in the day, but I was met with vehement protests to the contrary. Oh well.

I like this mosaic.

Who is Opus? Never heard of the guy... Didn't see that one coming though... Thought maybe Diaclone Powered Convoy would be tied into the storyline, that would have been cool :grin:

i'm sorry but i'm really not into this one... the way the story was told would be better if it was narrated, instead of those lines that don't really fit those characters... :-?

Art's horrid, and the story is awful.

The art seems to be a hybrid of Pat Lee's "style" and something a 5 year old can do. Opus looks to much like a blue Prime with a lot of hip. The different colours of the dialouge is a good idea, but it gets in ther way of the panels, and with brighter colours than the panels themselves, attract more attention to thjemselves rather than the panels, which should be able to tell the story through the art.

The idea of Soundwave being Prime's brothers is shaky. Personal Canon it may be, but it's very unlikely, as there's no root or even a slight hint within the show to render it as a possible relationship.

Wow...it looks like something i would draw....not impressive. Sorry if i offend you with my opinion. And WTF is up with "opus"? Seriously the worst name for a brother of OP and UM. Should have called him Ultra Mr. Hollands OPUS!!!!

i agree with this,
it was good to see soundwave caring for the 'minibots'

but consider the reverse, soundwave/opus is evil from the start and 'infiltrates' the autobots capturing and converting these minibots to cassettacons

i also think its totaly unnecessary for people to bash this piece so much, im sure constuctive criticism would be far more appreciated

that said opus is a stupid name :P

I have to agree with everyone else. The story wasn't as good as most mosaics and the art is just okay. And wouldn't Optimus or Ultra Magnus recognize Soundwave? Aside from his head and chestplate, he looked almost exactly like Opus.
