    *part 1*

    a desert. a vulture circles around the remains of beast of burden formerly known as cow. the rock outcrops afar shimmer in the blistering heat. a tumbleweed rolls by.

    tumble. tumble tumble tumble. tumble.

    the vulture screeches. a lone figure appears in the horizon striding a... semi trailer? the silhouette looms larger as it approaches the carcass. slowly, but surely.

    a red and blue robot is slumped over on the...yes, it is a semi trailer! hunching in his saddle, the robot tips his hat, looks skyward, acknowledging the vulture. we see a face...a face plate, really. intense blue optics. weary, yet determined. nearing the cattle carcass, the red and blue robot reigns in his ride.

    "whoa there, trailer!"

    the trailer pulls up obediently and the red and blue robot dismounts.

    "good girl." the red and and blue robot pats the trailer.

    the BIG red and blue robot - standing tall, he cuts an imposing lone figure in the landscape - wipes oil from his brow, reaches for his belt and extracts a pair of binoculars. assuredly, he scans the horizon and...there! he spots a little town.

    tucking away the binoculars the big red and blue robot raps the side of the trailer.

    "roller."

    a series of beeps and whistle cry out from inside the trailer, followed by the sound of clattering metal. the trailer's door swing open, deploying a ramp that thuds loudly onto the dry desert floor, billowing up a dust cloud. a six-wheeled buggy, wearing a poncho and sombrero, meekly rolls down the ramp, as if woken from slumber.

    "ROLLER!" the big red and blue robot, eyes squinting, barks at the six-wheeled buggy. the six-wheeled buggy seems to startle, as much as a six-wheeled buggy could be startled, and addresses the big red and blue robot in attention.

    "roller! i want you to do a reconnaisance run on that little town up ahead. keep a low profile and report back to me, pronto!"

    the sombrero-wearing six-wheeled buggy whistles in acknowledgement and lazily moseys on his way.

    "MOVE IT!" shouts the big red and blue robot as the the sombrero-wearing six-wheeled buggy blurts a startled beep, skitters in place and picks up speed.

    this thing is turning into a project o_O 

    added character sketches based on paper mariowned, tm2db suggestions:

    bounce this off tm2db:

    - screamer n seekers as the thugs/bandits in cahoots with the bad sheriff megs, soundwaves the quiet local businessman who runs fronts for megs.

    - jazz as the smooth lady killer who is compelled into action, ironhide as the barkeeper, trailbreaker as the ironsmith.

    - bumblebee as sheriff deputy who must choose sides. this one is all tm2db. the awesomeness of this idea is offset by his original suggestion of starscream as rival saloon girl to elita -.-"

    Ka:

    Neat. I suggest throwing in a little Skids, if not Charlene and Jake Dalrymple. :) 
    I wish I could remember which Marvel comic numbe his showdown was in.

    Nice drawings, too, but 'Transformers: Strip-Play' still wins, just because I can absolutely envision the rip-cord mechanism that makes Sindee spin around the pole accessory (and balance on the kitchen tabletop).

    *chapter 2: roller*

    it's been a good hour since the six-wheeled buggy left his company; the big red and blue robot raises his head towards the sky, squints as the scorching sun glares back in return, then re-focus his sights towards the little town up ahead.

    "roller should be back by now." he says to no one in particular.

    the trailer revs a suggestion. "yeah, maybe we should go on in after him." replies the big red and blue robot. he gathers his gear and mounts the trailer.

    "damn roller better not fall asleep on the job again." he mutters as they ride of in the direction of the town.

    ==============================================

    "dodgetron" a sign read, as the big red and blue robot and his trailer arrives unceremoniously into town.

    as the locals leer at the his arrival suspiciously, the big red and blue robot surveys his surrounding; a main street flanked by rows of indiscrete low-rise structures, the buildings actually seem well-maintained, but don't exactly look inviting from the general upkeep of the place. a large townhall can be seen at the end of the thoroughfare.

    (amongst the townsfolk that were cautiously eyeing the big red and blue robot was a particularly small, yellow robot, who discreetly kept pace.)

    one building caught his optics in particular; a few micromaster mobile bases (and a deluxe pretender vehicle shell) was parked in front of it with a large sign hanging over the entrance - "BAR". as the big red and blue robot steer the trailer towards it, a staccatto of gunfire ring from inside the bar. the trailer halts in its tracks. unperturbed, the big red and blue robot snaps the reign, gesturing the trailer to continue on its way.

    the big red and blue robot had just dismounted and was about to park his trailer when a loud crash came from behind him, as a blue, six-wheeled scout vehicle flew through the bar front window and landed with a splash in the oil feeder (for parked transport vehicles).

    the big red and blue robot raises an optic brow, and addresses the trailer.

    "roller." the big red and blue robot sighs as the trailer rolls its eyes (which is remarkable in itself since its head is comprised of a cockpit which has no eyes, much less pupils).

    as the bid red and blue robot assisted the six-wheeled buggy - sputtering beeps and revving erratically, splashing oil around - out of the feeder, the bar front door swings open, its hinges creaking sharply in the stale air. a red and light blue robot with distinctive shoulder intakes steps out purposely.

    he pulls out a cigarette from a pocket in his poncho, strikes a match at the door frame and lights up intently. he leers sideways at the the big red and blue robot and the six wheeled buggy - still clambering wildly out of the feeder. puffing the cigarette, the robot with the distinctive shoulder intakes smugly remarks,...

    ..."your friend's not much of a dancer, is he?" with a smirk.

    *next chapter: starscream*

    This is getting good. I can't wait to see who shows up next. There are a lot of western streotypes you can play on that look good already from you're drawings. A few more could be:
    "Doc" Ratchet
    Town preacher
    Local farmers
    City slickers
    Indians
    Town drunk
    Town lawyer
    Bronco busters
    School marm

    Tell me you're gonna take the entire story once it's done and create a book/comic/mag or something...even a PDF of the whole story would be great.
