At first it reminded me of Captain Quarck's plans in the "Ratchet and Clank" series, but the art is far far too good to be one of those plans!

Purely Awesome but who is the Blue Bot?

The 'Blue Bot' clearly states his name is Jackpot.

I really like the art design of this one. Really looks and feels Team Fortress 2!

I think what he meant to ask was whether Jackpot is an original character or part of a Transformers continuity he is not familiar with... at least, that's what i'm asking.
Oh yeah, liked the style on the mosaic, but isn't Astrotrain better off carrying that cannon in shuttle mode than Blitzwing in jet mode?

Well, they don't call 'em "Action" masters for nothing. Awesome art, great story...

Awesome, the action masters need more "screen" time. They always were a great bunch of figures, even though they didn't, you know, Transform.

Really fine piece. The art is like nothing I've seen before with Transformers, and is really good. The plan is pretty neat too, and I like the use of Jackpot.

Overall, good stuff this one 8) .

Yeah have to admit the Action Masters did get a bit of a bum wrap, but it would be nice to see a few more mosaics of them. After all, Banzai Tron plays a big part in the new IDW continuity doesnt he and he was an Action Master!

For some reason I can't view this comic. Could someone send me the link to where this was pulled from? I'd appreciate it and thanks ahead of time.

Cute Mosaic!

I have a weakness for Jackpot since reading the Hasbro Collector's story featuring him. Of any Actionmaster, I need to get that guy. Seems like Sights feet are hard to find though or fall off.
