    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:

    It should be noted that while this project has been recognized by IDW Publishing and Hasbro, none of the works presented have been commissioned or solicited by either company. The stories are not official canon, except where noted.
    These stories are the result of Transformers enthusiasts taking the time out of their busy days to contribute to a universe they love.
    No one has been paid for the production of these stories.

    (First mosaic and fanart I'm commenting on in this forum :)  )

    This is a nice example of a mosaic, for its got both nice art, good coloring (with the fire in the end bringing up the mood and the sudden flash of the explosion getting whammed right on one's face as it hit on the Dinobots) and more of a personal feeling to it with the closer point of view as opposed to the single frame in Shockwave's spotlight. And fleshens out the story its related to, at least giving the feeling of the moment.

    ...

    And of course, Grimlock making clear that he's not one to frag with. XD

    So that's why he talks like he does? One too many blows to the head?

    Eh, Works for me.

    I'm making a tour of all the sites to see how people have reacted to this piece, different username here but I'm the writer of "Me Grimlock" and I just wanted to thank you for digging the piece. I wrote it mostly because I like Grimlock, yes he is badass but I really like the idea of there being this Autobot who is'nt very Autobot like. Most of my pieces are IDW verse set so I thought I'd try and use the mantra of the Mosiac to expand upon the character and this scene seemed to make sense.

    I'd like to thank Miles (the artist) for doing such a good job he was very dedicated to this piece even redoing it because he was'nt satisified with the orginal version he had done. So I'm grateful for his assistance as well as the Mosaic editing staff.

    Nope Swoops alive it's just showing the strength of the explosion. This entire scene is Grimlock's flashback in Spotlight Shockwave told from a different angle.

    To those intrested in the writing process I've uploaded my orginal script of "Me Grimlock" to my deviantart page.
