Nice! I like it! Only thing is, I have absolutely no idea who these characters are, or quite what's going on. I understand this is around the time of the Great Shutdown, but that's about it. Anyone want to fill me in? Still, it's awesome.

Not familiar with the "shutdown". The green guy appears to be some cannon fodder char. The Axe Man is Straxus. In the comics, he was Meg's second and did what Shockwave was in the cartoon.

The green TF appeared in the Marvel US G1 comics.

He was one of the "empties", and couldn't afford energon, seriously affecting his memory.

He appeared in the "Cybertron" issues, where Cosmos and Blaster gave him energon to try to find out some info about Blaster's mssing friend.

P.s. This probably takes place after G1, either before or after G2. Most likely before G2, as Straxus cameoed in G2 where Jhiaxus was recounting how the G2 'Cons deserted Cybertron.

This lil gem harkens back to the days when Marvel was producing the TF comic. Lord Straxus was introduced in issue 17 "The Smelting Pool", he was pretty much the man in charge of the Decepticons left on Cybertron at the time cause Megatron and Shockwave had traveled to Earth. Straxus had a nasty tendency to slice up anyone who offended him with his vibro axe or throw them into Polyhex's smelting pool and let them slowly turn to molten slag... Its one of the best issues of the Marvel comic line I reckon, hopefully someone might still have one you could borrow :P

Nope it had to have taken place during the G1 comics. Because Jhiaxus was flashing back when the told that story. And Jhiaxus and his crew of Cybertronians left Cybertron during the Civil War and distanced themselves from the factions outright ignoring them.

The other references to the G1 comics are Shockwave just vanishing. He's refering to how Shockwave tracked the Ark to Earth and fought the Dinobots in the Savage Land on Pre-Historic Earth. And finally the orbital bounce. That's what they've been calling teleporting and such in the newer IDW comic books. Straxus was the pioneer of the Space Bridge technology in the comics.

So it takes place during the time that the Autobots and Decepticons were on Earth without contact to Cybertron. It could be anypoint between Prehistoric Earth and 1983 though.

If we are to assume that the green robot in issue 17 is one and the same with the poor fellow in this comic, this story MUST take place between issues 17 and 18. It can't happen before, because the green robot is alive. It can't happen after, because Straxus dies in issue 18.

Good point.

This is exactly how I pictured an Operation: Combination-era Cybertron would be ruled by Scrash (Skyquake), with an iron fist. However, the guy he kills is Dai Atlas (right in front of Star Convoy) instead of an unknown cannon fodder guy.

Who's to say that's the same Empty? A fair amount of Transformers sported Mass Produced body styles. For example: The Seekers, Minibots, Jumpstarters, Battlechargers, Clones, etc. It stands to reason that that particular Empty is one of a series of similar body types. And at the end of the day a generic charecter is still a generic charecter. And alot of the filler charecters were going to look similar.

Well, the fact that Straxus calls him WHEEZEL tells you it's actually him... Wheezel :)

Hello and a Happy New Year to you all :P I love it when something I've written causes so much debate!!! :grin:

If this was Marvel continuity, it would take place right after Straxus kills Scrounge :)

BUT...

Having mentioned Shockwave and Jhiaxus in that way... and also the "Orbital bounce"... lets you know I intend to make this fit in the new IDW-verse ;)

I'm so glad that oyu guys liked it. We're actually the same creative team that made last week's JINGLE ALL THE WAY mosaic piece :)
