    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.

    Absolutely lovely art and idea behind it. It's a crime that Ben wants to move away from Transformer art since I think he's finally cracked it!

    The only criticism comes more from personal taste than anything else. To me, even a one-page story should still be a complete story, this reads more like the first page of something bigger than a complete tale in its own right.

    Why does Cybertron look like Earth in the 1800's?

    Some notes.

    The title is a nod to both the notorious "The Magnificent Seven" movie and the Marvel UK Annual "The Magnificent Six" story.

    The "King of the wild frontier" credits are a nod to the homonym Marvel US issue.

    The ending panel is a vague nod to the Beast Wars episode "Coming Of The Fuzor".

    The Injecticons concept, created by Chris, is backed up by dozens of the characters that Chris designed. You might have seen them in this forum.

    The Protectobots are based on their "War Within: The Dark Ages" version.

    The Feudal Lord is based on one of the Decepticon statues seen in TFTM86 (Floron? Devron? Don't remember, sorry!).

    The Lawless Times were created by Juan Pablo for the Lost Seasons project.
