Yes. It was your fault. You let the Beast Machines story go so far. Bad Obsidien. Bad.

Is that coloring toy accurate, it's not show accurate, but all the Beast Machines toys didn't look a thing like the show.

For the sake of the above, in the last episode of Beast Machines Cheetor was able to launch Megatron's top two soldiers (Obsidian and Strika) into orbit during the final battle. Optimus Primal then defeated Megatron and reformatted the whole planet, and freed all the captured cybertronian's sparks which Megatron was holding prisoner. His was Obsidian, floating in orbit above Cybertron just as the series finale occured, blaming himself for Megatron's defeat.

Massive spoilers for Beast Machines, be forewarned.

In Beast Machines, Optimus Primal and the other survivors from Beast Wars learned that Cybertron was once organic from a computer called The Oracle. The Oracle ordered them to bring back the balance between the organic and the technological by becoming a blend of the two.

Beast Wars Megatron was able to free himself from the Autobot shuttle and return to Cybertron before the Maximals did and unleashed a virus that fried everyone's transformationcircuits. The entire population then had their sparks ripped out and Megatron built an army of drones and tried to purge his beast mode.

When Primal and crew returned in their new technorganic bodies, Megatron placed three sparks inside new bodies as generals.

Obsidian and Strika, seen here, were replacements for two of the previous generals. One had been killed, the other set free and joined Optimus.

Despite being amazing tacticians they underestimated Primal and ultimately lost the war and Primal sacrificed himself and Megatron and made the planet technorganic.

There's a lot of spiritualism and allegory for environmentalism. Although neither technological or organic is favored, only the balance is which I thought was really nice. It really is best to watch BW and BM. Both are excellent series.

Also really great comic. I have loved Shane's work since I first read Obsidian's lament and he continues to shine.

Awesome! BW and BM were the best series by far. I love the G1 characters, but the TV shows (other than a few gems) were mostly crap. This is a very good story that fits in nicely with the end of BM. The reason BW and BM are better than G1 is that the villains get some great characterization. They are not just evil for evils sake.

Awesome workl with the figs. The first panel looks like Obsidian was walking on Cybertron. Neat touch, even if it is accidental. And is that a clay I see on Primus, or special effects?

Beast Wars and Beast Machines are G1. They happen within the same continuity, just far into the future.

Definitely great one. I really like how Obsidian isn't characterized as evil, cause he really wasn't in the show either. It's also a neat look at an aspect of his character that was never really touched upon. Also, love the art style.

All in all, awsome ;)^ .
