NOTES

This pager is where :iconm3gr1ml0ck: went wild, expanding the original script to cover one of his favorite "mysteries".

You might remember that majestic spaceship and that vortex from "Fight Or Flee" (Season 3 of the G1 cartoon).

Dunewind is an OC whose main role is being Sandstorm's ancestors (in a G2 sense).

Circuitmasters are the Cybertronian Sages created by Bob Budiansky and Josè Delbo for the Marvel Comics.

Cool background. Any art work for Dunewind?

Just a recolored image of G1 Marvel Sandstorm... somewhere on my harddrive!

Cool. I recently got a copy of The Ark, and have been busy photocopying and recolouring hundreds of bots. Currently thinking up some bios and will get round to posting them up.

Any more information on Dunewind and the bots that followed him?

I can tell you how my original plot was bound to develop.
For continuity reasons, this concept could not completely fit with the Lost Seasons continuity, but the core concepts are still valid.
You can see more comics about this in Season 4: An Italian Detour (see "History Repeats" for instance).

Here it goes:

1. Dunewind leaves Cybertron after gathering a large group of Cybertronians that includes:
+ Cerebros
+ Chromedome, Brainstorm, Highbrow, Hardhead
+ Pointblank, Sureshot, Crosshairs
+ Wingspan
+ Punch
+ Cloudraker
+ Constructicons Cog and FastTrack
+ Constructicons Gasket & Grommet
+ the Terrorcons

2. The fleet is led by the Titanium Hope.
Among the other ships, there are two Mobile Erection Yards, known as MAX and NOK.

3. Dunewind leads the feel through the Vortex, thanks to information he had previously gathered from a disastrously-ended scientific expedition.

4. They reach Paradron, where the Mobile Erection Yards (commanded by Cog and FastTrack) begin erecting a city, Edenite.

5. Paradron is full of natural Energon reserves, but it's not a dead or sterile planet.
As FastTrack finds out, the sands of Paradron are made of "paleomonites", a very ancient claytronic matter which is theorized to be the building block of Cybertronian life.

6. Dunewind forbids any experimentation of the Paleomonite, but FastTrack ignores him, as he desires to learn more.
The experimentation bring dark fruits, as the by-product of Paleomonites' evolution is... Cosmic Rust

7. Realizing that his work is about to be exposed, FastTrack plans to flee from Paradron.

8. As a first act, FastTrack plants a bomb in the Assembly Hall, thus putting offline
+ Cerebros
+ Chromedome, Brainstorm, Highbrow, Hardhead,
+ Pointblank, Sureshot, Crosshairs
+ Punch
+ the Terrorcons

9. To cover his escape, FastTrack also bombards the planet with Cosmic Rust projectiles that actually infect all the inhabitants of the planet.

10. As FastTrack leaves, traveling on NOK, someone decides to chase him.
It's Cog, Gasket & Grommet, who take of on MAX.

11. As NOK and MAX engage, they enter the Vortex.
The energies of this battle cause a damage to the Vortex' mechanics, thus throwing bot NOK and MAX back in time, and into a completely different planetary system.

12. NOK and MAX fall on a very primitive, still unhinabited, planet, which will one day become known as NEBULOS

13. Severely damaged, NOK and MAX go in defense-mode, hiding themselves underground or among the forests.
Their pilots go offlie.
Centuries later, these two "Citadels" will become the object of worshipping of the native Nebulas, whose evolution will be heavily influenced by the Cybertronian technologies they manage to steal from NOK and MAX.

14. Back on Paradron.
Sensing the impending death by Cosmic Rust, Dunewind breaks his vows and reveals the secret of the Cybertronian Reproduction to all Paradronians.
They will all die, but their lives will not go in vain, as they will all create a Laser Core offspring.
And the energies released in the process will also neutralize the Cosmic Rust plague.

15. Just like in G2 Comics, each online Cybertronian splits his Laser Core in two, thus creating a new lifeform, and then dies by Cosmic Rust.
(This does not happen to Chromedome and the others, who are locked in medbay and shielded by the Stasis Lock).

16. The new Laser Cores use the Paleomonites particle to create new bodies for themselves.
They are clones of the original population, and this is also how Pounce and Fastlane are created.

17. Dunewind create his successor, RotorCloud, and gives her an Artifact known as Sub-Matrix: a minor version of the Creation Matrix, able to peek into the future.

18. As Dunewind dies, he learns that this Second Generation of Paradronians will prosper until the day a new "purge" (the Ebon Knights) will sweep them away.
But a Third Generation will be born and live until the year 2006 -- they will be lead by Sandstorm (Rotorcloud's offspring) and they will one day reunite with the Cybertronians of Cybertron.

19. That day, the offline robots (Chromedome and his group) will be brough back online, and will start working to reach Nebulos and salvage their lost comrades (Cog, Gasket, Grommet, FastTrack).

20. The events of "The Rebirth" will ensue.

21. Later, Zarak and Spike will learn that two Laser Cores sleep inside Scorponok and Fortress Maximus: they are respectively FastTrack and Cog, who merged with the Mobile Yards when they crashed on Nebulos, millennia ago.

I lied. No Cerebros.

Cool! What colour scheme are Dunewind, and Rotorcloud?
M3Gr1ml0ck's avatar
M3Gr1ml0ckHobbyist Artist
Dunewind is Kup-like, while Rotorcloud was supposed to be red and dark blue, but I never managed to decide.
Constructasaur's avatar
So kind of like crosshairs?
M3Gr1ml0ck's avatar
M3Gr1ml0ckHobbyist Artist
More blue, with small details in red.
Constructasaur's avatar
Ok, do you mind if I use the ideas to add to the ones I am colouring?
I have Sandstorm (obliviously)
Dustpelt (generations coloured)
Lightningtail (alternative generations coloured)
Lifeguard (knock off coloured)
Parrot (human alliance coloured)
Arkose (beachcomber coloured)
Grainrain (decepticon)
Oasis (Star Seeker, knock off coloured)
