Letters Column: Trans Missions

After receiving the Rite of the Autobrand, Jetfire is officially welcomed into the ranks of the Autobots. He's not the only one - using memory patterns encoded on crystals prior to their departure from Cybertron millions of years ago, five new Autobots join the ranks: Grapple, Hoist, Smokescreen, Skids and Tracks.

Bumblebee is assigned by Optimus to give them a guided tour of their new home, and the group sets out across the Oregon countryside.

Shockwave reappears, having dug his way out of the swamp and invented a power siphon which allows the Decepticons to feed any source of fuel into it and convert it to energon cubes. This frees the Decepticons from their dependance on the Blackrock oil platform, which they quickly abandon in favour of an upcoming concert, where they will position the siphon to capture the sonic energy.

While on tour and refueling, the six Autobots learn of the Brick Springstern concert and the Decepticon's plan to use the siphon. Optimus orders them to investigate but take no other action.

The Autobots find the siphon cable at the concert and sever it, causing the Decepticon jets to appear and attack. Bumblebee falls down a pit to find Shockwave, and blinds the Decepticon with one of his own Energon cubes. The Decepticons retreat; the Autobots have saved the concert.
