    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:

    So Galvatron is going to use Vector Sigma for a sinister purpose? Interesting.

    And nice mosaic title, BTW.

    The key is in the penultimate panel. Oh, I said "key", this is ironic.

    Thanks!
    Of course, the final quote is a nod to Furman's work. I couldn't resist!

    Given the events of Rebirth, I laugh at Galvatron and his interpretation of working a con :p

    He's crazy, after all.
    There's more coming, and he'll gain other assets, but yes: Vector Sigma is smarter!

    Great pre-cursor to Rebirth, and I too heard Welker's Galvatron voice perfectly while reading this.

    This mosaic looks like a deleted scene from Season 3 of G1.

    Good job.

    Some "behind the scenes" notes.

    Title is a conflation/paraphrase of "Call Of The Primitives" and "Madman's Paradise".

    The battle referenced in panel 1 is the same referenced at the beginning of "The Rebirth". We never saw it take place, but we know that the Decepticon were defeated and scattered across the galaxy.

    Vector Sigma's first line is taken from "The Key To Vector Sigma".

    Ancestral Foundry: it's the Plasma Energy Chamber, of course.
    It seems that Primacron has some advantaged access to it.

    I'm not the first one to suggest that Primacron is an entity in balance between Primus and Unicron (hence his name).
    When Primacron overwhelms him, Primacron creates "positive" mechs as the Primitives (well, even though some of them chose evil).
    When Unicron overwhelms him, Primacron creates "negative" beings: Tornadron, Unicron's new body...

    Primacron is possessed like oracles from ancient Greece were possessed by the gods.

    Who is gonna be the Autobot champion?

    As a prelude to "The Rebirth", this story reveals how Galvatron learned the secret location of the Key to the Plasma Energy Chamber.
    And maybe the origin of his new warriors.
