    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:

    Can you name the exact continuity we're trying to fit in with this story?
    And what classic mistake/unexplored plot detail are we trying to explain? And do you think it *may* work?
    This Mosaic implies things, more than explain them, but still...

    The BW homage is obvious, though. :D

    Very awesome. I've never made that connection between Masterforce (?) and Beast Wars before.

    It's "The Rebirth" :) 

    Basically, we're writing a possible sequel to G1 US cartoon, considering the japanese shows a sort of alternate universe.

    Panel 1: the planet has a ring, that this new "Pretender Wars" will damage beyond recognition, turning it into that tangle of purple clouds that you can see around Nebulos in "The Rebirth".

    There's a mention of time travel. The six Transformers that reached Nebulos' distant past came from the year 2008 or 2009, I'd say.

    Panel 2. The planet is rich of Energon! Who seeded it? Where did it go?
    In another plot, we will learn that the Quintessons used Nebulos as a prison as well.

    Panel 3: the city is the first Hive's city, but it is also a lost Cybertronian ship. This is why Spike and Cerebros, in "The Rebirth", could so easily turn it into Fortress Maximus' body.

    There's a mention of another Cybertronian ship...it's the second Hive's city, the one that will become Scorponok's body.

    Panel 4. The new ships, with time travelling capabilities, crashed but survived... maybe they're still around in the present-day Nebulos!

    Panel 5. So, on Nebulos was fought a "Pretender Wars", I wonder how it ended. However, we have a new origin for these weird toys.

    There are six other toys that do not appear here: with another artist, we're at work to give them a completely different origin as well.

    What is the 'classic mistake' that this story addresses, I honestly can't spot it!

    Maybe it's not so classic!
    Or the word "mistake" just doesn't describe the concept properly...

    Basically: the second Hive city already sports a Decepticon symbol, even before becoming Scorponok. Both these cities can be turned into Transformer bodies with unexplained ease and extraordinary speed, and their technology level seems not only to match the cybertronians' , but to fit seamlessly with Cerebros' body.
