@  Spiritofeigh... : (20 September 2020 - 05:07 PM)

Cheers pal.

@  wonko the sane? : (20 September 2020 - 04:42 PM)

Welcome aboard!

@  Spiritofeigh... : (20 September 2020 - 04:38 PM)

Hey, new to the boards

@  RichardT1977 : (20 September 2020 - 02:29 PM)

I had an idea for a Spiral Zone/Go-Busters crossover fanfic...

@  wonko the sane? : (19 September 2020 - 06:35 PM)

I loved what was there, and think it's pretty ripe for "renegades" style reboot.

@  Rycochet : (19 September 2020 - 03:13 PM)

It's a shame as I loved Spiral Zone, and the design from the Japanese Toyline of the same name are fantastic, I adore the monowheel motorbike.

@  Rycochet : (19 September 2020 - 03:12 PM)

Hasbro doesn't seem to have any interest in doing anything with the TV show, haven't greenlit any attempt to rerelease it, and there have been approaches, so I think it may be aother one of Tonka's legal carcrashes where everyone involved owns a piece and it's not really worth anyone sticking their neck out to claim ownership.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 01:47 PM)

I feel that homages and references would be a fun way to expand the GI Joe brand, and give a little love to lines that are unlikely to be acknowledged beyond such capacity.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 01:47 PM)

I was under the impression that Bandai was more the character design aspects, not story or characters.

@  Rycochet : (19 September 2020 - 12:55 PM)

Also isn't it in rights limbo, given how it's loosely based on concepts from a BanDai series much like GoBots?

@  Rycochet : (19 September 2020 - 12:52 PM)

We don't need a Spiral Zone reboot, in a decade or so we'll be living it.

@  wonko the sane? : (19 September 2020 - 12:49 PM)

Yeah, but it would fundamentally change the base premise of both gijoe and spiral zone. It's either not the world spanning threat it was, or the zone riders are backed up by a competent force. Either way, you compromise the context of both.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 12:19 PM)

Akin to what was done with Matt Tracker in 2008.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 12:18 PM)

Again, not a PURE transplant, but an integration of ideas and concepts into the world of GI Joe.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 12:18 PM)

@Wonko The Cobra Overlord, with help from Dr. Mindbender and Cesspool, develops machines capable of generating a mind-controlling fog. GI Joe stalwarts Flint, Airtight, Lifeline, and Psyche-Out are joined by Colonal Courage to infiltrate these zones and disable the machines. Figures would sport hostile environment suits (Eco warriors cross with Spiral Zone) and make new versions of the mono-wheel vehicles.

@  Maximus Ambus : (19 September 2020 - 09:39 AM)

Hasbroverse.2 with bought properties: Bravestarr, Ulysses 31, Galaxy Rangers, Shadow Raiders, Manta Force, Jayce and the Wheeled Warriors, Mighty Orbots, Jem and Bigfoot and the Muscle Machines. Seamless.

@  wonko the sane? : (19 September 2020 - 08:32 AM)

While acknoledging spiral zone would be pretty boss, I doubt they could actively integrate it into anything else: given the scale of the villains deeds.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 08:03 AM)

COPS, Spiral Zone, Shadow Strikers, Action Man, Centurions, MegaForce. They wouldn’t replicate the old lines, but simply acknowledging their existence would be nifty.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 08:01 AM)

I would love to see GI Joe become something of a “celebration of action figures”. Hasbro has SO MANY old action figure properties, and many could slot into the GI Joe umbrella with relative ease.

@  Otaku : (19 September 2020 - 12:04 AM)

G.I. Joe, CyberCOPS, and M.A.S.K. all seem like something that would work from Animated or Prime, though CyberCOPS might have been a bit trickier from Prime.

@  Sabrblade : (18 September 2020 - 11:02 PM)

Rik Alvarez originally wanted the last episode of Prime to spinoff into a new MASK reboot.

@  Otaku : (18 September 2020 - 08:19 PM)

The failed Hasbroverse reminds me how so many things could have been spun off from Transformers: Animated and (after that) Transformers: Prime.

@  ▲ndrusi : (18 September 2020 - 12:43 PM)

Requiem of the Wreckers was post-Revolution, but it was also, you know, a single issue.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (18 September 2020 - 11:06 AM)

But Roche didn't have a series to keep out from the crossovers since Sins of the Wreckers was before Revolution.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (18 September 2020 - 11:01 AM)

Oh wait, that post said Roche, not Barber.

@  Rycochet : (18 September 2020 - 10:46 AM)

And then seemed surprised nobody particlarly wanted it.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (18 September 2020 - 10:25 AM)

Wasn't Barber among the editorial guys that pushed for Hasbroverse?

@  Maximus Ambus : (18 September 2020 - 10:19 AM)

He did it possibly due to 616 Spider-Mans marriage reset between Civil War and Secret Invasion.

@  ▲ndrusi : (18 September 2020 - 09:20 AM)

Bendis kept a tight leash on Ultimate Spider-Man because it was mostly set far away from Earth?

@  -LittleAutob... : (18 September 2020 - 08:49 AM)

I'm learning so much-

@  Maruten : (18 September 2020 - 04:21 AM)

At its worst it was better than MASK, sure.

@  Maximus Ambus : (18 September 2020 - 02:15 AM)

At it's worst it still stomped all over the failed Hasbroverse. Roberts and Roche kept their respective series well out of that one for the same reasons Bendis kept a tight leash on Ultimate Spider-Man when Loeb and Miller wanted greater control for Ultimatum.

@  Maruten : (17 September 2020 - 06:37 PM)

That's so accurate it's physically painful.

@  Rycochet : (17 September 2020 - 02:05 PM)

The Red Dwarf of Transformers? An interesting, innovative and genuinely funny series that descended into a self referential mess of cliches that continues long after it should have been put out to pasture and rendered nerly everyone thoroughly unlikeable? That seems about right.

@  Bass X0 : (17 September 2020 - 01:59 PM)

MTMTE and Lost Light are the Red Dwarf of Transformers stories, as opposed to the others which are more like Star Wars and Star Trek.

@  Kalidor : (17 September 2020 - 01:37 PM)

Anyone in CONUS want a Skylynx for $100 shipped?

@  Maximus Ambus : (17 September 2020 - 01:34 PM)

Maybe an acquired taste in that's in that it's from a fan raised on the UK run where Transformers wasn't taken so seriously in many stories, especially some Earthforce standalones.

@  Paladin : (17 September 2020 - 09:47 AM)

so, terrible?

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 September 2020 - 09:26 AM)

Yeah I think at that point Lost Light is just the '86 movie without the soundtrack.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (17 September 2020 - 02:28 AM)

So, exctly what Triangleman just said.

@  Bass X0 : (17 September 2020 - 12:36 AM)

A few of the same characters.

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 September 2020 - 12:07 AM)

Now having actually read Galaxies #10, I don't actually see what it has in common with Lost Light at all besides featuring Ultra Magnus, Chromedome, and a spaceship.

@  ▲ndrusi : (16 September 2020 - 05:33 PM)

So, it's exactly like Lost Light, then.

@  Bass X0 : (16 September 2020 - 01:52 PM)

What if Lost Light was stripped bare of its charm and humor? Galaxies #10 is the answer.

@  ▲ndrusi : (16 September 2020 - 01:49 PM)

I didn't mean "*exactly* 15 years ago and no other time."

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 September 2020 - 12:27 AM)

I mean, the comment was about a linewide gimmick of 15 years ago, not a gimmick only present in a minority of toys from that year.

@  Maximus Ambus : (16 September 2020 - 12:14 AM)

I'd like a western take on the UT for it's twentieth, like a annual CG or anime movie on Netflix that is a condensed retelling similar to the film Macross/Robotech: Do You Remember Love.

@  Maximus Ambus : (16 September 2020 - 12:11 AM)

Giant Planet had them, Energon had a few. I've been disappointed in Siege for not having something for the Micromasters, Earthrise has with the base bots but they've been wasted here.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (15 September 2020 - 10:47 PM)

Wasn't 15 years ago Cyber Keys rather than Minicons?

@  Steevy Maximus : (15 September 2020 - 09:38 PM)

By and large, even the worst Minicons have some unique engineering or design elements. The nostalgia factor aside, Micromasters got pretty samey after you got several, especially the "proper" 89 series.

Hey there, guys. I decided to share some of the scripts I've written for a hypothetical TV series.

The title comes from the IDW Transformers limited series that was basically trying to revive the old Marvel Comics story of the Transformers, but this will be a whole new clean slate.

Of course, because I imagine this being from 1988 until 1994 (each season would be hypothetically aired each year, as they always are), I imagine actors from that era playing the roles (both regular voice actors and people who would have been pretty active in live-action stuff in order to bring some variety).

This series takes stuff from various Transformers series in order to fit the kind of universe that would be my ideal continuity for a TF series.

The first season episodes are these:

The Search, Part 1
The Search, Part 2
The Search, Part 3
The Search, Part 4
The Search, Part 5
Battlechargin' Fears
Babalú
Pop Goes the Screamer
Sharkspearean Masterpiece
Motherly Warmth
Monster Hunting Season
Defending the Base
Scalpels and Lasers

The scripts will be posted one by one after each reply (I have already finished the first three seasons and I'm working on the fourth). And we'll start of course with what is my very first written work... The Search, Part 1. So sit back and enjoy "The Transformers: Regeneration One".

NOTE: All characters belong to Hasbro and TakaraTomy.

ACT ONE

FADE IN

ESTABLISHING SHOT AUTOBOT BASE MAIN ROOM

The Autobots are on their daily peaceful routine. Two of them are on their rooms, but on the main room we see OPTIMUS PRIME using TELETRAAN-I, the Autobots main computer to check on any Decepticon incursions. We also see HOT ROD and ARCEE with young DANIEL WITWICKY, son of SPIKE and CARLY WITWICKY. They seem to be talking about their lives. We also see NIGHTBEAT taking a stasis nap on his post as well as MINERVA watching WHEELJACK and DANIELS grandfather SPARKPLUG with a very youthful curiosity. They are repairing gadgets and building new ones as well, and their mastery really catches Minervas youthful attention. We also see SPIKE talking with BUMBLEBEE, the youngest and smallest Autobot around. Theyve been friends for many years. Suddenly, an alarm rings and everybody reacts to that.

OPTIMUS PRIME
Incoming transmission. Put it on the monitor screen, Teletraan-I.

While TELETRAAN is patching into the feeds, two more Autobots show up. DRIFT, former Decepticon agent who now works for the Autobots to atone for his previous wrongdoings, and SMOKESCREEN, a veteran tough-as-nails Autobot soldier with a very charming personality towards his friends.

SPARKPLUG
Whas this all about???

OPTIMUS PRIME
Well find out in a moment, Sparkplug.

TELETRAAN finally manages to put the transmission to the monitor screen, and we see MEGATRON, Decepticon leader, addressing the Autobots.

SPIKE
Megatron!!!

MEGATRON
(through filter)
Yes, miserable flesh creature!!! I, Megatron, glorious leader of the Decepticons, address you now!!!

SMOKESCREEN
(with a mocking expression)
I address you, too, sweetheart!!!

HOT ROD, ARCEE, MINERVA, BUMBLEBEE, NIGHTBEAT
(laugh)

MEGATRON
(enraged)
Youll pay dearly for that, you insolent wretch!!! Now, Optimus, I decided to challenge you to a duel on the moon!!! If you win, we Decepticons will leave you and your friends alone, if you lose, well hunt down every single one of your troops and execute them without mercy!!!

OPTIMUS PRIME
(calmly)
Even though I dont want to risk the life of those close to me, Ill accept the challenge, Megatron.

MEGATRON
(gloating triumphantly)
Excellent!!! You have two Mega-cycles to face me on the moon. If you dont, you know what will happen!!! Megatron out!!!

The transmission ends.

NIGHTBEAT
(doubtful)
I dont like this Optimus. You know how tricky Megatron can be.

HOT ROD
(eagerly)
Yeah, Nightbeats right. You should have some backup.

OPTIMUS PRIME
(with an inspiring sound)
I admire your concern, but even though Megatron is somewhat unpredictable, I must accept the duel and fight my best battle with all my energy and all my love for all of you. Wheeljack, prepare the shuttle.

WHEELJACK
Roger that, Prime!!!

CUT TO

THE DECEPTICON SHIP MAIN ROOM

MEGATRON is addressing his troops. We see a lot of VEHICON DRONES of all three types (CAR, JET, TANK) as well as STARSCREAM, SKY-BYTE, QUAKE, THUNDERHOOF, TANKOR, KNOCK OUT and the Battlechargers (RUNABOUT and RUNAMUCK) listening to his speech. Behind MEGATRON stands SHOCKWAVE, who is putting a very strange looking device into MEGATRONs back without being noticed. Its a Moleculon Bomb, a powerful explosive that can destroy anything on a 20-mile radius.

MEGATRON
(triumphant)
My fellow Decepticons!!! At last well be able to finish the Autobots forever!!! After Optimus Prime is destroyed, all the other Autobots and whoever stands in our way will follow!!! Well finally be masters of the entire universe!!!

DECEPTICONS
(cheering)

MEGATRON
(to SHOCKWAVE)
Take care of things while Im away Shockwave, and keep a very close eye on Starscream.

MEGATRON flies away.

SHOCKWAVE
(seeing MEGATRON flying away)
Yes, Lord Megatron, I will certainly take better care of things than you do.

CUT TO

THE MOONS SURFACE

OPTIMUS shuttle lands on the moon, and OPTIMUS exits from the shuttle.

OPTIMUS PRIME
Gravitational Field Generator online.

OPTIMUS has activated a built-in Gravitational Field Generator that allows him to walk on the moon (as well as any other planets or moons) just as well as any human walks on the earth. All Transformers are equipped with these Field Generators.

MEGATRON arrives on the scene, and lands on the surface.

MEGATRON
(gloating victoriously)
Finally!!! Youll see why I am the most powerful Decepticon in the Universe!!!

OPTIMUS PRIME
(calmly yet with a defying tone)
The battle hasnt even begun, Megatron, and yet, you gloat about victory too soon.

MEGATRON
(with a mocking tone)
Even now, Optimus, in the face of your own demise, you still think you can win!!!

OPTIMUS PRIME
(calmly)
Unlike you, Megatron, I dont think about winning a battle, because every battle always has the same pattern, yet it never applies just to one side: One Shall Stand One Shall Fall.

MEGATRON
(enraged)
THEN PREPARE TO FALL!!!!

The battle starts. Both sides are watching the battle through their computer feeds. We get some shots of the Autobots and the Decepticons reacting to the battle in many different ways while also getting some shots on the battle itself.

MEGATRON punches OPTIMUS on the face and sends him to the ground.

DECEPTICONS
(excited)
Hey, lookit dat!!!
Get im, boss!!!
Pulverize im!!!
Use the combination: one, two!!!

AUTOBOTS, HUMANS
(worried)
Oh, no!!!
Cmon, OP!!! Get up!!!
Hurry, Prime!!! Hes coming towards you!!!

MEGATRON gets closer to OPTIMUS, but OPTIMUS gets up and gives him a powerful kick to the gut which leaves him stunned long enough for OPTIMUS to give him an equally powerful and painful uppercut.

AUTOBOTS, HUMANS
(cheering and celebrating)
Yeah!!!
Kick him hard!!!
Pop im one for me!!!
Take that, Mega-klutz!!!

DECEPTICONS
(angered and upset)
Oh, scrap!!!
Cmon, boss!!! GET DA SCRAP UP!!!
I knew he was going to fail!!!
Shut yer processor up, Starscream!!!

Suddenly, both opponents run toward each other and start clinch fighting like two wrestlers violently throwing each other. During this clinch fight, we cut to SHOCKWAVE, holding a detonator. He presses a button and suddenly, both fighters are engulfed in a deadly mist of fire and smoke. We hear a horrific death scream coming from Megatron while we zoom out to see the catastrophic explosion caused by SHOCKWAVES deadly Moleculon Bomb. We see SHOCKWAVE looking triumphantly (yet without showing any emotion) at the explosion.

AUTOBOTS, HUMANS
(shocked and confused)
What happened???!!!
Hey, is this some kinda trick???!!!
Wheres Optimus???!!!

DECEPTICONS
(shocked and out of control)
Hey, wha???!!!
Thheck was dat???!!!
Wheres the boss???!!!
Is he pushing Cyber-daisies???!!!

The mist clears, and we start seeing the results of the catastrophic explosion. In the place in which two warriors had been clashing, now there is one lying on the ground, heavily damaged by the explosion. Its OPTIMUS PRIME. Of MEGATRON, we only see ashes and smoke, as well as his Fusion Cannon lying on the ground.

CUT TO

AUTOBOT BASE MAIN ROOM

The Autobots are still shocked by the recent occurrence. Nightbeat notices the figure lying on the ground.

NIGHTBEAT
(pointing to the monitor screen)
Look!!!

HOT ROD
(eagerly)
Its Optimus!!! Cmon, we got to save him!!!

SMOKESCREEN
(trying to warn HOT ROD)
Wait, kid!!! The cons are still there!!!

HOT ROD
(impulsively heading towards a small craft with NIGHTBEAT)
The scrap with that!!!

HOT ROD and NIGHTBEAT enter the craft and lift off.

SMOKESCREEN
(with a very bitter attitude)
(sigh) I dunno what Prime ever saw on that kid.

ARCEE
(sourly)
If you say anything bad about Hot Rod, youre gonna be sorry!!!

SMOKESCREEN
(threatened)
Alright!!! Alright!!! I was just sayin!!! Geez!!!

CUT TO

SPACE SHUTTLE APPROACHING THE MOON

NIGHTBEAT
There it is, Roddy. The moon.

HOT ROD
(concerned)
And no sign of the Decepticons. Move out slowly, Nightbeat. It could be an ambush.

We see the shuttle landing slowly. HOT ROD and NIGHTBEAT jump out of it. They have their Gravitational Field Generators on. They transform into vehicle mode and roll out. They find OPTIMUS lying on the ground; they transform into robot mode and take him to the ship.

HOT ROD
Okay, lets get out of here fast!!!

FADE IN TO

AUTOBOT BASE REPAIR ROOM

MINERVA checks OPTIMUS damage levels while HOT ROD, ARCEE, NIGHTBEAT, SMOKESCREEN, BUMBLEBEE, WHEELJACK and DRIFT looking at their commander with grief, yet theres a hopeful feel on their expressions. Along with the Autobots, we see SPIKE, CARLY and SPARKPLUG comforting young DANIEL, who is crying quietly while hugging his father, who is gently caressing his head. We also see SPIKES younger brother BUSTER with his girlfriend JESSE, who have also come to pay their respects.

MINERVA
(with a very sad tone)
I fear his wounds are fatal.

OPTIMUS wakes up one last time and looks at his fellow Autobots and his human friends, looking sadly at the Autobot that they considered a gentle father figure.

OPTIMUS PRIME
(gently, but with an ailing sound)
My fellow Autobots, my human friends. My beloved family. My time is short, and its time for a new leader to rise and lead the Autobots to victory.
(looking at SMOKESCREEN and WHEELJACK)
Some of you have fought with me from the very beginning
(looking at BUMBLEBEE, NIGHTBEAT, HOT ROD, ARCEE and DRIFT)
while others have joined me as time went on
(looking at MINERVA and the humans)
and we also have those whom I have not known long enough, yet have proven themselves in the short time I knew them. All of you have proven to be worthy allies and friends.
(looking at HOT ROD)
Hot Rod, its up to you, my young friend. You must find the Creation Matrix and protect it from all evil until that day in which youll have to release its power and light our darkest hour.

HOT ROD
(nervously)
Prime, please. Im not worthy for this task. Im just not boss material.

OPTIMUS PRIME
(gently)
I wasnt fit to be a leader, either. I didnt think I could be able to carry the burden of leadership as well as my predecessors did. But I tried my best, and I know that youll do it even better than I ever did.

HOT ROD
(doubtful yet accepting his fate)
I dunno, Prime. I dont think Ill ever be the leader you were, but Ill try and make you proud in any way possible. I accept the burden.

OPTIMUS PRIME
(ailing yet inspiring)
Until that day Till all are one

OPTIMUS PRIME, beloved commander and father figure of the Autobots, quietly passes away. All the Autobots are trying to comfort each other as well as the humans.

HOT ROD
(trying to contain his emotions)
He lived a warrior and died a hero. Let his spark join the Matrix, the greatest of Cybertron.

We fade in to a scene in which the Autobots and humans have a funeral ceremony for OPTIMUS, whose body is being cremated while human planes are executing the missing man formation. The Autobots salute their late commander while his ashes fly into the sky.

END OF ACT ONE

ACT TWO

FADE IN TO

SPACE THE DECEPTICON SHIP

We then see the Decepticons on the ships throne room while SHOCKWAVE is making a speech.

SHOCKWAVE
Megatron, thanks to all of his pride and illogical anger, has met his end.
(the Decepticons react with shock towards this revelation)
Because of this, I am taking over leadership of the Decepticons. Anyone who disagrees with what logic dictates is going to be immediately terminated with extreme prejudice.

DECEPTICONS
(nervously)
ALL HAIL SHOCKWAVE!!!
ALL HAIL SHOCKWAVE!!!
ALL HAIL SHOCKWAVE!!!

SHOCKWAVE
Now, all we need is to find out what the Autobots are planning now that Optimus Prime has ceased to function. Starscream, you shall spy on the Autobots.

STARSCREAM
(embarrassed)
Me???!!! The greatest, most sophisticated Decepticon ever created???!!! Im not going to do that embarrassing spy mission, its below me!!!

SHOCKWAVE
You are the only logical choice. You are the only Decepticon equipped with a cloaking device. You either do what logic states or face me.

STARSCREAM
(scared)
Okay, okay, you made your point!!!

STARSCREAM transforms and blasts off into the earth. He then activates his cloaking device in order to remain undetected by any monitoring devices (we see him as an outline, in order to give the illusion of invisibility). He arrives at the Autobot Base and overhears a meeting between the Autobots. He takes an audio recorder out of a storage chamber in his chest and records the entire briefing.

HOT ROD
Well, bots. Thanks to Teletraan-I, weve pinpointed possible locations for the Creation Matrix. These power stations are all abandoned, so we wont have to worry about harming humans. Well split into groups. Some of you will have to stay and keep an eye on the base, while I pick a different team for each mission. We have pinpointed these locations so far: A hydro-electric power plant in Oregon, a nuclear power station in Boston, the old electrical plant in Nevada and the abandoned crystal mines of Burma. Our first task is to check the Oregon hydro-electric plant. Wheeljack, Arcee, Minerva youre coming with me. The rest will stay here in case the Decepticons attack. Autobots, roll out!!!

STARSCREAM, still invisible, transforms into vehicle mode and takes off triumphantly, heading to the Decepticon ship.

FADE IN TO

THE DECEPTICON SHIP MAIN ROOM

SHOCKWAVE and STARSCREAM are talking about their new objective.

SHOCKWAVE
Excellently handled, Starscream. Your recording will allow us to ambush and destroy the Autobots at these exact same locations. We cannot allow them to reach the Creation Matrix. According to my datatracks, any Autobot tasked with the mission of finding the Matrix will become the new leader of the Autobots. And we cannot allow that to happen. You will lead this first assault. The Battlechargers and Thunderhoof will join you.

FADE IN TO

OREGON A DESERT

HOT ROD, ARCEE, MINERVA and WHEELJACK are driving towards the Oregon hydro-electric power plant.

ARCEE
Look! There it is!

HOT ROD
(cautiously)
We still have to be careful, remember that we also have Decepticons to deal with.

MINERVA
(excited)
Golly, I just cant wait to see some action!!!

WHEELJACK
(laughs warmly) Dont worry, Minerva. Were almost there.

STARSCREAM, THUNDERHOOF, RUNABOUT and RUNAMUCK are hiding in a large rock formation near the road to the plant.

STARSCREAM
(hushed)
Here they come. Remember, when they get closer, well jump on them and give them the shock of their lives.
(laughs)

CUT TO

THE AUTOBOT BASE MAIN ROOM

BUMBLEBEE and NIGHTBEAT are looking at the monitor while DRIFT is looking at the desert through the window. SMOKESCREEN comes out of his room to inform about enemy activity.

SMOKESCREEN
(concerned)
Theres been no Decepticon activity since Hot Rod left, but I cant help but feel that theyre up to something.

BUMBLEBEE
Yeah, those guys are really nasty pieces of work.
(to DRIFT)
What do you make of it, Drift??? You were a con before, so you must know how they operate.

DRIFT
(calmly)
This peaceful stillness only means one thing, Bumblebee. The Decepticons are preparing an ambush, not toward us, but toward our allies heading for the power plant.

CUT TO

OREGON DESERT ROCK FORMATION NEAR THE POWER PLANT

The Autobots keep driving toward the power plant, while the Decepticons wait on the rock formation nearby.

STARSCREAM
(hushed)
Here they come!!!
(yelling)
NOW!!!!!!

The Decepticons jump from the rock formation and are now blocking the road to the power station.

HOT ROD
(frustrated and surprised)
SCRAP!!!

The Decepticons stand triumphantly in front of the Autobots, smirking and getting ready to engage.

END OF ACT TWO

ACT THREE

FADE IN TO

OREGON DESERT NEAR THE POWER PLANT

We see STARSCREAM with a very intense angry expression on his face barking orders.

STARSCREAM
(violently screaming)
DECEPTICONS DESTROY!!!!

The Decepticons advance towards their targets. STARSCREAM engages HOT ROD and both opponents start clinch fighting. The Battlechargers surround WHEELJACK and circle around him laughing maniacally.

RUNABOUT
(laughs) Cmon Runamuck, Ill run around im and you ram im!!!

RUNAMUCK
(excited)
How bout you ram im and I ram im even harder!!!

RUNABOUT
(excited)
Yeah!!! Lets do it!!!

The Battlechargers jump on WHEELJACK, but he quickly evades them, making them crash onto each other.

CUT TO

ANOTHER BATTLE SEQUENCE

THUNDERHOOF is targeting ARCEE and MINERVA, but tries a little bit of his womanizing charm before trying to engage them.

THUNDERHOOF
(smirking seductively)
EY-YO!!! Your sweet behinds would make a nice addition to my fun houses!!! So why doncha play nice and come wit' poor, lonely me. You is gonna have fun.

MINERVA
(disgusted)
EWWWWWW!!!!

ARCEE
(replying bitterly to Thunderhoof)
YOU'RE DISGUSTING!!!

THUNDERHOOF
(totally upset and enraged)
EH-OH!!! Tha's no way to treat an expert Gigolo, babe!!!!

MINERVA
(mockingly)
Stick it in your command module, ya unattractive ol geezer!!!

THUNDERHOOF
(now really upset)
EH-OH!!! THA DOES IT!!! NOW YOU IS GONNA SUFFER!!!

He prepares to engage the two Autobot ladies. MINERVA draws her Shock Blaster.

ARCEE
NO!!! His metal is impervious to firepower!!!

THUNDERHOOF
(charging)
AAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHH!!!!

The two girls look at each other with a playful smirk and nod to each other. Then just as THUNDERHOOF gets closer, ARCEE and MINERVA jump out of his way. ARCEE jumps to the right, MINERVA jumps to the left.

THUNDERHOOF
(just notices the rock wall in front of him)
EH-OH!!!!!!!!!

THUNDERHOOF crashes onto the rock wall and his head gets stuck in it.

THUNDERHOOF
(muffled and very enraged)
Aww, scrap!!! You two girls is gonna see!!! You aint seen the last a me!!! Youll be sorry the next time we meet, cause you is gonna answer to ol Mr. Lupara!!! Ill (keeps babbling and gloating furiously)

MINERVA and ARCEE giggle at THUNDERHOOFS angry babble, and they congratulate each other with a high five.

CUT TO

STARSCREAM AND HOT ROD FIGHTING

HOT ROD and STARSCREAM are fighting furiously against each other. First, HOT ROD punches STARSCREAM in the face, but then STARSCREAM gets the upper hand. He starts flying around and punching HOT ROD in mid-air, until he finally lands again. He then proceeds to grab HOT ROD and throws him to the ground.

STARSCREAM
(gloating triumphantly)
Now you see why Im the greatest Decepticon in the universe, ya little punk!!! Any last words???

HOT ROD
(defiantly)
I hope this suffices!!!

HOT ROD instantly gets on his feet, and charges at STARSCREAM. He starts punching the treacherous Air Commander so violently that his head starts spinning around. Then STARSCREAMS head stops spinning and we see a very comical surprised look on his face. He then falls to the ground. HOT ROD looks at his allies.

HOT ROD
Everythings under control here???

WHEELJACK
Yup. All Decepticons have been engaged and immobilized.

ARCEE
(smiling)
Situation handled with total efficiency.

MINERVA
(excited)
GOLLY GEE WHIZ!!! THAT WAS SO COOL!!!

MINERVAS youthful nature and energetic attitude makes her fellow Autobots smile warmly and they cant help but chuckle with her youthful energy.

HOT ROD
(smiling)
You got spirit, Minerva.

ARCEE
(with the tone of a caring mother)
Yes, thank Primus youre on our side.

MINERVA
(happily)
Thanks, Arcee, and you too, Hot Rod. Golly, I cant believe how awesome you guys have been with me.

WHEELJACK
(gently)
Unlike the cons, Minerva, we Autobots look and care for one another. Sure, Drift can be a pretty quiet guy and Smokescreen can get pretty cranky at times, but were all a family. Well never abandon each other.

HOT ROD
Indeed, Wheeljack. Now, lets head for the power plant.

The Autobots transform and roll for the power plant. However, we see that STARSCREAM is getting up. Hes still dizzy and stunned thanks to the clobbering he got from HOT ROD.

STARSCREAM
(dizzy)
That punk!!! Hell pay for this!!! Luckily, we still have the contingency plan.

STARSCREAM takes a device from his storage container. Its a detonator.

CUT TO

THE AUTOBOTS ARRIVING THE POWER PLANT

The Autobots transform into robot mode.

HOT ROD
Okay, guys. We need to stay sharp. Remember, if you find anything, give me a call and well join at the plants powerhouse.

The Autobots split. We focus on MINERVA. Shes walking through the abandoned dam. She then finds a strange container. She opens it and she finds a piece of a strange device, definitely Cybertronian.

MINERVA
(to herself)
Gee, this is pretty far out.
(raises a wrist communicator and starts talking)
Minerva to Hot Rod. Ive found something pretty strange in the dam.

HOT ROD
Roger that, Minerva. The Autobots and I will join you at the powerhouse.

FADE IN TO

THE POWER PLANT POWERHOUSE

MINERVA gives the piece to HOT ROD.

HOT ROD
Youre right, Minerva. This is definitely Cybertronian.

WHEELJACK
Seems like were on the right track, Hot Rod. According to my readings, that piece is a part of the Creation Matrix.

HOT ROD
Good thinking, Wheeljack. Now we must get it to the base for safekeeping and---
(a quake interrupts him)
What the---???!!

Outside the power station, we see STARSCREAM. Hes holding the detonator and he has already activated the explosives to instantly destroy the dam and its powerhouse.

STARSCREAM
(gloating triumphantly)
Goodbye, Autobots!!! I hope you find the rubble comfortable!!!
(flies off, laughing maniacally)

We see the Autobots trying to get out of the powerhouse, but they get buried in the rubble. We hear them scream and grunt as the rubble starts burying them continuously.

TO BE CONTINUED

END OF ACT THREE
