Acting as an epilogue to Special Story: A Tale Of Two City-Bots, this one-pager doesn't reveal too much of what happened there, bu gives away lot of hints!

Slammer, Sixgun and Scamper are G1 Metroplex' partners, available with his toy.

Sixgun is supposed to turn into two sets of weapons...but these weapons are already active on Metroplex (panel 2) and they look quite big!
Our theory is that Sixgun's weapons are used to power up Slammer and Scamper.

Slammer has a robot mode, now: it will be featured in the final page of Special Story: A Tale Of Two City-Bots.

This one-pager takes place after the events of official miniseries Revelation and Maximum Dinobots, and after our own SoD comics Magnificent Crisis and Differentiation (still not online).

There's a Rodimus Prime in Seeds Of Deception? See the concept art!

Nebulos was ravaged by Thunderwing in Stormbringer.

The Interplanetary Cold War begun right after the exodus from Cyberton, caused by Thunderwing (again) millennia ago.

The catastrophe that took place at the beginning of the Interplanetary Cold War will be revealed in the aforementioned "A Tale of Two City-Bots".

Should be "its might", not "it's might".

Um, it already looks like that to me. You mean un panel 2, right? Or not?

Hmm, could have sworn there was an apostrophe there...

Maybe in an early version... did you store the file on your pc or in some temporary cache?

The Editor's Pen strikes again!

Last panel:

"...from rubble"

"what better... to do that?"

LOVE the way Max looks in this. Great work.

The drawings and colouring are really well done! What I like a lot is the interesting colour scheme on Six-Gun. He has some of the toy trigger parts coloured black like from the toy and the arms being black instead of that red/maroon cartoon version colour, looks very cool! Also of course it is also great to see some dialogue written for Slammer, a first thing for me to see and read! The space effects in the 2 screens the in the first panel really look great. The idea of Metroplex as a space ship is interesting, it reminds me of a bit of Headmasters how he flew so suddenly. This new Fortress version character looks nice, I've seen the toy of him but now it's great to see him in content form! G1tastic effort to the team on this page!

This must be the most dialogue those three ever got.

Not only is this awesome, but I think it's the only time I've ever seen Slammer speak! :D
Tf-SeedsOfDeception's avatar
There was one time in "The Ultimate Weapon"... I think he spoke!

Oh questa roba è favolosa!

Non esisterebbe senza di te!
danbrenus's avatar
Uh? E perchè? Non ho partecipato a questo progetto...
Tf-SeedsOfDeception's avatar
Ma senza Mag Cris e Rodimus, non ci sarebbe questo progetto: parte tutto da lì, sempre e comunque.
danbrenus's avatar
Ahhhhh, Mag Cris, attendo con ansia di vederla completata...
