The Universe of the Transformers is vast, and populated by many characters. Their universe is a large tapestry, made up of the stories and points of view of countless experiences that serve the larger whole.

These are some of those stories. This is:


It should be noted that while this project has been recognized by IDW Publishing and Hasbro, none of the works presented have been commissioned or solicited by either company. The stories are not official canon, except where noted.
These stories are the result of Transformers enthusiasts taking the time out of their busy days to contribute to a universe they love.
No one has been paid for the production of these stories.


This one's called "Temptation", by Kris Carter!

Never liked Hot Rod. Still don't like Hot Rod...

But this Mosaic is just so faceted; on the one hand, Hot Rod comes across being very noble, not wanting the power of the Matrix to avenge his comrades, but we see, on the other hand, that it's a very flawed nobility. It fits perfectly with his characterization as being over-confident, but manages to twist it so that's not merely one-sided.

Well done! I hate Hot Rod less now!

I had the thought also that this Mosaic carries a bit of a One Ring vibe, but it does also get at the one extremely significant thing that Hot Rod and Optimus had in common both in G1 and in the IDW-verse: neither one desires the power in his hands. So far, IDW has done a good job at re-imagining characters in interesting ways, and this surely participates in that effort.

You'll only understand this if you've read the Hotrod Spotlight comic or a synopsis of it, if you haven't don't even attempt to understand this...

Very nice comic; good art, nice colours, interesting concept, great filler. All in all a very nice piece. That Spotlight made me like Hotrod just a little more, & this has done the same. Very Optimus-esk.

I haven't read the Hot Rod Spotlight yet(hopefully I'll get both spotlight books early next year), so I guess the story's over my head.

However, I love the art.

Topnotch ;)^ .

Seems like a foreshadowing of Hot Rod's future role among the Autobots.

It looks like one of those knobbly vibrating balls that some little kids play with (no laughing in the back).

Good insight - Hot Rod is usually too cocky to ask for help from anyone or anything.
