Ah, Circuit Breaker! If there's anyone who needs to show up in TFA, it's her: after all, they've had more human villains than the other TF series put together, and it's been noted many times that TFA is bigger on collateral damage. Someone who wasn't so sure about all those giant robots hanging around here in the first place gets badly injured next time a "Megatron Rising" goes down...

Surely they can get the rights back from Marvel. I mean, now that Marvel doesn't own Transformers, what do they need with a character whose motivation is that she hates Transformers?

great to see circuit-breaker in an animated context,
along with all the g1 cameos. she really would be
a great villian for the show.

if only she weren't tied up with marvel!

Circuit Breaker was one crazy woman in the original comics.

Arkeville looks a little awkward and CB's design doesn't quite fit...

Amazing work!!! Not sure who Circuit Breaker is, exactly, but this is great! So stoked that you pu Dr. Arkville in there, it makes me want to watch the "Ultimate Doom" trilogy again!

I like everything except the panel with Blurr since Shockwave disposed of him in a compactor?
M3Gr1ml0ck's avatar
That's the most slippery side of the piece: this Mosaic *should* take place during Season 2, before Blurr revealed himself to the Autobots.
I think it could work, because Shockwave never shows his "Longarm Prime modes", here...
Hey! It's TORQ III.

Wow, everyone's criting this one harsh. For us old-schoolers, all the information needed is present. It's a one page mosaic, there isn't possibly space for :iconm3gr1ml0ck: to give us all the reasons why these guys are all together, nor introduce TORQ and the rest to those of us who don't recognize them.
I, for one, am thrilled to see someone use Circuit Breaker.
The art is good, too. If I were to critique, it would be on Arkeville and Circuit Breaker. Their looks don't quite fit. Shockwave is friggin awesome looking. Spot on!

I, Dr. Arkiville, Genius of Science say,..... I HAVE A FRO! Now that I am properly prepared, I'm ready for my audition for Beavis and Butthead!

Agent: Psssst, Beavis and Butthead are dead. Didn't you get the memo.

Oh, well what's the next best thing?

Agent: Transformers Animated. Might be good for your PR, since you haven't been around for more than 20 years.

Alright. When do I get my redesign?

Agent: No can do, Arke, the budget's been spent on Blackout and Strika's designs. You'll have to go as is.

... crap.

:P

Look Whelljeck's ( :iconwhelljeck: ) page for an Arkeville redesign that maybe you'll like better.
Moondancer0X's avatar
Oh, I just found it kinda interesting. The more I think about it, the harder time I have trying to imagine what he'd look like as a TF Animated character. The nose, though, kinda reminded me of Beavis though. I hope I didn't come off prickish.
M3Gr1ml0ck's avatar
Well, not to me, I enjoyed the irony (the Mosaic too was just meant to have fun).

Ack, sorry for the double post. XP

This doesn't entirely make sense. Cameos are great, but when used properly. Echoing what's been said, why would Meltdown make somebody more robotic--and where did he come from? What's Powell's stake in this? What makes Josie so special to be remade into Circuit Breaker? Where does Arkeville come in? Why is TORQ III there at all? I wouldn't mind the diagnostic drone so much if it was there doing its job neutrally and didn't look so evil. With Powell, it could be extrapolated that with the Autobots gone, he's free to pursue his financial ambitions without interference, but Josie hates all machines, she doesn't differentiate, she'd have a field day in Detroit. There're just too many things that are either implausible, unnecessary, or unexplained. I'm not really feeling the art, either.

The concept does have potential, but the execution needs some work.

Simple explanation... it was all Prime's trailer! It's evil!

Torq and Arkeville are just G1 tributes: after all, the piece is done just to have fun ^^'
For the other questions, I tried (just tried) to give some answer to Seiberwing, some posts ago: but don't take them seriously, really... it was just for fun, and now I'm feeling guilty for that. ^^'

perhaps they all want revenge! i think the appearances are more of a mystery, but thats the fun of stories, questioning everything. also why reveal everything? but wow! does everyone think that is the art really that bad?
