Starscream based on the War Within Titanium toy, while War Within Megatron gets the darker helmet reminiscent of the Romita model used in the original 4-issue limited series, with Marvel-ness further reinforced by Straxus and Thunderwing being at the meeting, PLUS the story explains Shockwave's face in a way that could also explain the animosity between Shockwave and Megatron in comic continuity...

...YES! Best Mosaic in months!!!

Sticking to cartoon prehistory is great if you want to work in as many Diaclone concepts as possible or have fun with the Quintessons, but for stories like this that explain characters becoming who we know them to be, it's often better to work in comic continuity.

He should have stepped on his hand too, that way it would give a reason for the laser hand.

I liked this one. It took me a minute to get everything, but I liked it.

Not the "Romita" model but the Diaclone prototype pics. So now we have a back story why Shockwave got no face?

I meant the model used in his Marvel TF Universe profile, with larger eyes and the brow-line determined by the downward peak on the helmet rather than the bottom of the vestigial crest of the toy protruding from under the helmet in the standard animation model. That profile pic also has a trigger on the fusion cannon, which I thought was usually attributed to Romita rather than Dery.

Well, regardless, Megs' head was only drawn like that in the very earliest stories, so it has as much of a prehistory connotation as his old Microchange sword, which many of us assume was his weapon when he was a gladiator, discarded around the time he found his fusion cannon (possibly right when he grabbed it off that guy in State Games)

I also just realized that the original face made up for Shockwave here looks a lot like Animated Jazz's face. Is that some sort of nod to Jazz and Shockwave's Alternators/Binaltech toys sharing a common mold? Damn, these guys covered ALL the bases! Though I also agree with whoever mentioned his left hand; maybe if he'd tried to block the punch...

The rendition of Shockwave with a mouth was so horrid it deserved a good punch in the face. ;)

...And that, my children, is how Shockwave became a one-eyed freak. The end. 8-}

I saw the Picture and thought "This is going to be a Mosaic about G1 Shockwave (most likely in the G1 Marvel-verse) using the Longarm Prime gimic from animated."

-Actually kinda glade I was wrong, but at the same time, wish I was right. While this is the first Shockwave's face gets broken, have had 2 Shockwave loses a hand Mosaics, and no Transcending of Longarm Prime from Animated. Maybe that's a concept that should stay dead & buried...

Favorite scene in this is Shockwave's corpse laying there doing the traditional Cartoon float on the ground using an almost perfect pic from the instructions.
The colors rock too, especially in that scene, the floor gradient is very G1 Sunbow.

They usually are. You should read my all-time favorite, "The Last Enemy".

Internet speeds are horrid on my end today. Took me forever to load "The Last Enemy", but the wait was well worth it. Great storyline. Inclusion of a second shooter conspiracy amused me abit too, whenever I read/see/hear a reference to it I think of the 'models are assassins' conspiracy in Zoolander. Had to search this "Enemy' character on the tf wiki too, had never heard of him before.

For sother mosaics, check out Deviantart. http://transformers-mosaic.deviantart.com/

And for the two that I did (shameless plug!) with the help of some amazing artists: http://optimutt.deviantart.com/

Mosaics are generally very well worth a read. This is no exception, being both fun and clever. Great work!

gr8 mosaic, I like how it highlights the days when the Decpticons were just a bunch of bots hangin out, and Megatron did what he wanted.

Personally, I think this Mosaic should be official canon. 'Nuff said. Glad you enjoyed it as much as I did. ;) :grin:
