|Neustálá válka mezi Autoboty a Decepticony si začíná vybírat svoji daň. Oběma stranám dochází zásoby energie, kterou shání jak se jen dá. I když Autoboti nevyhledávají boj a snaží se jen přežít, Megatron je prostě záporák tělem i duší a nenechá je na pokoji ani když odlétají z Cybertronu, aby našli jiné zdroje. Decepticoni se v okamžiku srážky s rojem asteroidů projeví jako naprostí vychcánci, dostanou se na palubu Autobotů a začne mela. Loď přitom havaruje na planetě zvané Země a všichni roboti jsou vyřazeni z provozu. Až o čtyři miliony let, v roce 1984, probudí náhodná erupce sopky sondu, která začne s opravami. V tomto okamžiku dostává každý robot nový altmod, aby nebyli domorodcům nápadní.|

Megatron, který je ale zvyklý krýt si záda, lest odhalí a všechno vypadá beznadějně. Pozitivní ovšem je, že se Autoboti konečně aspoň trochu projeví jako dobří rváči a velký vládce Decepticonů dostane od „Prajma“ na držku.|
