nice one. really digs into Gear's personality, as he seems to be the party-pooper of the Autobots, always whining about Cybertron this, Cybertron that, yadda, yadda, yadda...



:MAX:

Good, that is good.
I like the idea of borrowing the holodeck idea from Star Trek.

Very nice .
One question though:
How does Gears change from a blue truck to
a red robot. The color proportions are opposite
truck - robot(blue-red)

Not the most involving, but these mosiacs are consistently excellent.
Good work.

This is what I like about some of these Mosiacs. Insight into why a character might act the way they do. Yes, Gears whines about Cybetron all the time. It's because he's a simple guy who wishes life didn't get so complicated, not because he's small and bitter. Not necessarily, anyway.

I always felt bad for characters like Gears & Huffer; bots who just wanted to go home & ended up deactivated instead. Sure they whined a lot, and Gears had a generally questionable value (Infrared use? bah), but they never asked to be involved in the war. Their gripes are legitimate, in my opinion. Another excellent Mosaic.

Mattyc, the circle in panel 3 is a moon, like the one visible in Beast Machines.

Kinda makes you wish for a Cybertron of your own, doesn't it? *sniff*

Great work!

It's also interesting that Gears does this alone, as opposed to sharing rec time on Cybertron-that-was with his comrades. He's certainly not the only one who misses home, but he doesn't feel able to share that in a positive way with his teammates. Hound's RAIN remains my favorite, and so far I've consistently liked MOSAIC's contributions to the IDW-verse.

THese things are pretty great. I look forward to them almost as much as my IDW books, good job to the writers and artists!

Great art and insight into the character.

Also is that a Maximal symbol on the building in panel 2 or is it just me?

To my eyes, it looks like a green-hued version of the symbol on this page.
