Cybertron is rebuilt, thriving, and at peace after the Great War. Then 200 Deception prisoners escape the prisoner ship the Alchemor. Episodes show the Transformers as true heroes in the face of evil, violence, and destruction. Aided by humans Russell and Danny Clay, it’s Autobots Bumblebee, Strongarm, Sideswipe, and Fixit backed by Optimus Prime against Deceptions Underbite, Gridlock, Steeljaw, Hammerstrike, Bisk, and Terrashock in a battle to save Earth.
Official Shout/Hasbro Release:
The new mission begins as BUMBLEBEE must step up to be leader in the years after we left the AUTOBOTS in TRANSFORMERS PRIME. Summoned by OPTIMUS PRIME to save Earth from a new DECEPTICON threat, BUMBLEBEEputs his light-hearted mettle to the test after assembling a rouge team of AUTOBOTS action heroes. BUMBLEBEE must balance his job fighting off evil with being equal parts squad leader and coach to a rascally team that needs constant coaxing to learn how to work together. The results are comical when the cool rebel SIDESWIPE, elite guard cadet STRONGARM, bombastic dinobot GRIMLOCK and overly-excited mini-con FIXIT must balance keeping the team together with chasing and capturing their new enemies in each adventure-filled episode.
