Excellent artwork; very compelling dialogue for Fistfight.

Some things that need to be better set up: Fistfight's motivation in contributing to his master's downfall; what he would gain for it? After Shockwave eats it, he'd still be stuck on a planet he doesn't like.

Otherwise, a great way to segue to Spotlight: Shockwave.

One thumb up. :CON:

I LOVE THIS ONE!!! That is just too freaking funny. It has the added bonus of tying in story arcs plus seldom seen toys as well and it was done perfectly. Damn fine job guys! I'd love to see a whole comic book done just like this. I'm already picturing Spotlight: Shockwave redone. :P

aside from the obvious wall-e reference, i believe there is a not so subtle reference to Marvin the robot from Hitchhikers guide to the galaxy,...brain the size of a planet and such. Plus him getting left behind and complaining about it,...or maybe it's just me noticing that since I'm re-reading that book now for the 1,000,000,654,908,000th time i believe. haha

Thanks!

Oh, that. In our collection of Short Stories, you can see that Fistfight is evil for evil's sake (if this makes sense in English). :)
He has no grand plan: he's just an uncontrollable destructive force that caused many of the major disasters in Transformers history... and somehow, he always managed to survive.

Please stay tuned for Fistfight vs Overkill =D

Yes, there is!

Also, someone suggested a little mech named Ro-Jaws.

More Fistfight madness here:

Hilarious Mosaic! Loved it! And that while I even had to look up Fistfight to see who he was again...
Also seems to be a Dr. Horrible's Sing-a-Long Blog reference in there, am I right?

Great mosaic. You took one of the most boring TF toys in the history of the franchise and made him a great character. More please!

I thought "Priminy" was especially clever, considering that "Criminy" is a derivative of "Christ."
