    FADE IN:

    EXT. SPACE

    A small planet glows in the light of its sun. Suddenly, we
    hear a loud rumble, and see a thick, electronic mist behind
    the planet... Then, the electronic mist begins to engulf the
    planet, and we hear the horrible sounds of destruction.
    Almost like somebody, or something, is eating it.

    PUSH DOWN TO:

    EXT. THE NEAR SIDE OF THE PLANET'S SURFACE

    Strange robotic creatures scramble around the planet in a
    wild panic. It looks like Pompeii must have looked as
    Vesuvius erupted.

    ANGLE ON ONE OF THE CREATURES - TRACKING

    The creature is KRANIX. We will meet him later on in a very
    different context, but for now, he is running from the ever-
    growing mist that threatens to engulf him.

    ANOTHER ANGLE - THE PANIC

    As Kranix runs, another creature, ARBLUS, calls to him.

    ARBLUS
    Transform and flee, Kranix! You must
    warn all you meet of the horror of
    Unicron! Suddenly, the pitiful creature
    is surrounded by the strange energy cloud
    and it looks like his body has
    simultaneously caught fire and been
    doused with acid.

    KRANIX
    Arblus! No!

    ANGLE ON KRANIX

    The mist threatens to engulf him too. He transforms into a
    small rocket ship and...

    TRACK WITH KRANIX AS...

    He takes off. As we rise higher and higher in the atmosphere,
    we see the horror wrought by the hideous and still mysterious
    Unicron. The planet cracks like an egg and rivers of lava
    leak out. The energy cloud surrounds it and... Dissolves
    everything... ... And when the smoke clears, we get our
    first look at Unicron. It is horrifying. A massive, metal orb
    with a gaping maw and a field of electricity.

    (CONTINUED)

    CONTINUED:

    PAN FORWARD to SHOW that this hideous planet is on a direct
    collision course with...

    MOONS ORBITING CYBERTRON IN DEEP SPACE

    There are TWO MECHANISTIC MOONS orbiting the huge planet
    Cybertron. But we are most concerned with a small, greenish
    metal one.

    NARRATOR
    It is the year 2005. The treacherous
    Decepticons have conquered the Autobots'
    home planet of Cybertron. But from
    secret staging grounds on two of
    Cybertron's moons the valiant Autobots
    prepare to retake their homeland.

    CLOSER ON GREEN MOON

    At first, we see nothing unusual or suspicious. Then,
    pulling closer, we see that the top of the moon is covered
    with moon camouflage "netting" and underneath it is a huge
    cache of futuristic weapons. This is the Autobot staging
    ground for an assault on Cybertron. DOLLY THROUGH THE COMPLEX
    until we arrive at a Command Center where several Autobots
    peer into monitors, running constant surveillance on
    Cybertron.

    ANGLE ON IRONHIDE

    He peers into a monitor. As he speaks, we see the monitor
    PAN to an area where a huge Decepticon Symbol is emblazoned
    on Cybertron.

    IRONHIDE
    Every time I look into this thing, my
    circuits sizzle. I'm tired of this
    waiting game, Prime. When are we gonna
    start bustin' Deceptichops?

    ANGLE ON OPTIMUS PRIME

    He stands over a holographic map which shows various invasion
    plans for Cybertron.

    OPTIMUS PRIME
    We still don't have enough Energon cubes
    to power a full scale assault, Ironhide.

    IRONHIDE
    Then let me make another run to Autobot
    City on Earth. I'll bring you back more
    cubes than you'll know what to do with.

    3.



    ANGLE ON PRIME

    He solemnly hands down an order

    PRIME
    Alright, ready the shuttle for launch.

    ANGLE ON IRONHIDE

    He raises a fist in a warwhoop!

    IRONHIDE
    YAHOO!
    (looking into monitor)
    Your days are numbered now Decepticreeps.

    A SMALL MOON "MOUNTAIN"

    Ironhide transforms and Races toward a mountain, which stands
    about a half mile from the secret Autobot facility.

    OPTIMUS PRIME (V.O.)
    Jazz, report security status.

    COMMAND CENTER - ANGLE ON THE CONSOLES

    JAZZ
    No sign of Decepticons in this sector,
    Prime.

    PRIME
    What about Moon Base 2?

    JAZZ
    Jazz to Moon Base 2.

    PAN UP and through the sky to -

    ANOTHER MOON
    This is the second moon. It is much
    closer to Cybertron than the first one.
    This is where Bumblebee and Spike are
    stationed.

    JAZZ (V.O.)
    Jazz to Moon Base 2.

    ANGLE ON BUMBLEBEE AND SPIKE

    They stand together a communication console. Spike is now
    35 years old. Bumblebee looks as he has always looked, save
    for a couple of funny bumper stickers on his tail: I (heart)
    Cybertron. I (club) Decepticons.

    (CONTINUED)

    4.
    CONTINUED:


    BUMBLEBEE
    Bumblebee and Spike here.

    JAZZ (V.O.)
    We're about to send up the bird. Any
    Decepticon shenanigans in your sector?

    BUMBLEBEE
    All clear, Jazz.
    (pause)

    SPIKE
    Hey, Ironhide, tell my son, Daniel, I
    miss him, and tell him I'll be coming
    home as soon as we've kicked Megatron's
    tail across the galaxy.

    CUT TO:

    INT. THE SHUTTLE

    Ironhide and Prowl sit at the controls, running a series of
    pre-launch tests.

    IRONHIDE
    Will do, Spike.

    ANGLE ON PRIME, CLIFFJUMPER, AND THE OTHERS

    Standing at the Command Center, watching:

    PRIME
    Commence countdown, Cliffjumper.

    CLIFFJUMPER
    Five...Four...Three...Two...

    THE LUNAR "MOUNTAIN"

    Suddenly, smoke starts pouring out of the mountain.

    CLIFFJUMPER
    One....

    Then, the "mountain" which must be made of paper mache or
    something blows away revealing -- The shuttle!

    CLIFFJUMPER (V.O.) (CONT'D)
    Liftoff.

    Suddenly, the shuttle rips out of the ground in a ball of
    fire.


    (CONTINUED)

    5.
    CONTINUED:

    As it takes off, we realize this isn't any dinky shuttle, but
    a massive ship, capable of carrying all the energon needed
    to fight a war and an army to boot. The screen is bathed in
    smoke and fire which slowly clears.

    ANGLE ON PRIME

    As he watches the shuttle shoot into the distance.

    PRIME
    Now, all we need is a little Energon and
    a lot of luck.

    ANGLE BEHIND PRIME

    We see a bank of computers. Suddenly, a small tape deck pops
    open... a cassette pops out and transforms into...
    ...Laserbeak who flies away unseen.

    DISSOLVE TO:

    EXT. SPACE - LATER

    The shuttle hurtles though a massive asteroid field.

    PROWL (V.O.)
    Slow down, Ironhide. We want to get to
    Autobot city in one piece.

    CUT TO:

    INT. THE SHUTTLE

    Ironhide is at the controls.

    IRONHIDE
    If I can dodge Dececpticon rays, I can
    sure as shootin' dodge a couple of
    asteroids.

    Suddenly, there is a terrible BANG! on the side of the ship,
    and the two Autobots are thrown from their seats.

    PROWL
    You were saying?

    IRONHIDE (IRKED)
    That wasn't an asteroid. There is a blast
    of light and they turn to see...

    6.



    ANGLE ON THE SHIP

    The most powerful laser light anybody has ever seen cuts a
    gaping hole in the side of the ship... Then, when the light
    clears, a panel of the ship falls in and we see -

    MEGATRON!

    In all his glory.

    MEGATRON
    Die Autobots!

    Then, he transforms to Gun Mode, spins into STARSCREAM'S arms
    and Starscream fires.

    BRAWN
    is cut in half by Megatron's blast.

    ON PROWL
    as SCAVENGER MELTS HIM DOWN.

    THE INSECTICONS
    ...eat away at the hole in the shuttle to
    make way for... ...an ARMY of other
    Decepticons including Laserbeak who
    enter, firing.

    IRONHIDE AND RATCHET

    While FIRING back are FUSED TOGETHER... ... then blasted
    apart and fall in smoking, glowing fragments.

    ON STARSCREAM AND MEGATRON

    As they enter the now empty ship, a number of Decepticons
    flood past them, taking positions and searching for other
    living Autobots.

    MEGATRON
    This was almost too easy, Starscream.

    STARSCREAM
    Much easier, oh mighty Megatron, than
    attacking the real threat: the Autobots
    moon base.

    MEGATRON
    You're an idiot, Starscream. Were we
    simply to wipe out that minuscule base,
    they could build another one.
    (MORE)


    (CONTINUED)

    7.
    CONTINUED:
    MEGATRON (CONT'D)
    But when we slip by their security
    systems in their own ship and destroy
    Autobot city, the Autobots will be
    vanquished forever!

    IRONHIDE
    Fat chance, Megatron!

    Ironhide pulls himself up and grabs onto Megatron who flings
    him against the wall.

    MEGATRON
    Such heroic nonsense!

    DISSOLVE TO:

    EXT. EARTH - CLOSE SHOT- MINIATURE RADAR SCREEN

    A child's hands hold a scanner device which tracks a
    TRAVELING BLIP across a star map towards a pulsing dot which
    represents the Earth.

    DANIEL (V.O.)
    The Shuttle just zipped past checkpoint
    zeta.

    ON DANIEL
    Daniel, a classic twelve year old
    American boy watches the portable viewer
    which is like an over-sized Boy Scout
    compass. WIDEN SHOT to show he is at an
    old fashioned "fishin' hole" on Earth -
    surrounded by weeping willows, assorted
    trees and shrubs, and that his fishing
    pole is stuck in the dirt, the line
    floating lazily out on the water.

    DANIEL
    Let's watch Ironhide land it, Hot Rod! As
    Daniel runs to small skateboard-like
    device, hits a button, and watches, it
    transforms into a hoverboard and rides
    it, like a surfer up a steep, grassy
    hillside we change angle to feature...

    HOT ROD
    an "adolescent" Autobot. He is in robot
    mode, sitting with his fishing rod held
    between two fingers, looking bored with
    it all.

    HOT ROD (CONT'D)
    Talk about dull......!


    (CONTINUED)

    8.
    CONTINUED:


    Then, he tosses the rod into the water.

    ON DANIEL RIDING HIS HOVERBOARD UP THE HILL

    DANIEL
    (calling excitedly)
    Hurry or we'll miss it!

    HOT ROD
    lopes up hill after Daniel.

    HOT ROD (CONT'D)
    If you're gonna ride, Dan-O ...ride in
    style! Hot Rod catches up with Daniel,
    scoops him off his hoverboard, TRANSFORMS
    to automotive mode and RIDES OVER CREST
    OF HILL with Daniel in the front seat.

    ANOTHER ANGLE - ON AUTOBOT CITY

    FOLLOW Hot Rod up and over a roadway leading around the
    perimeter of Autobot City which becomes visible the instant
    Hot Rod clears the rim of a hill. As they travel, we SHOULD
    also be getting a sense of what Autobot City is all about.
    (DESIGN NOTE: Autobot City looks like a federal energy
    project gone mad. Here, the Autobots are trying to exploit
    every known means of getting energy. The mountain is covered
    with solar panels, windmills spin in the valley, oil derricks
    pump, and not far away a hydroelectric dam catches millions
    of volts. Near all of these various things are energon
    compressors, which turn the raw energy into energon cubes. IN
    THE BACKGROUND of these scenes, we should see various panel
    truck-type Autobots cruise up in auto mode to stacks of this
    energon, convert to humanoid mode, load up their vans, then
    convert to Auto mode again and drive the Energon into Autobot
    City. In short, it should be clear that the purpose of
    Autobot City is to harvest energy. All the while, Hot Rod and
    Daniel are riding recklessly out from the Autobot City and up
    into neighboring hills for an overview of the -

    CIRCULAR LANDING AREA

    which resides within the "bowl" created by the City structure
    and natural surroundings.

    DANIEL
    Hey! Let me out.

    HOT ROD
    Why settle for a peek when you can see
    everything from Lookout Mountain?



    (CONTINUED)

    9.
    CONTINUED:


    DANIEL
    But we're not supposed to go beyond City
    limits!

    HOT ROD
    Chromo-Chicken!

    ON KUP AND OTHER AUTOBOTS

    KUP - a grizzled, "old Soldier" of an Autobot - is directing
    the positioning of a large metal road barricade. Hot Rod
    barrels through a sign which reads: "STOP -THIS AREA OFF
    LIMITS", almost knocking Kup over in dust and wind

    KUP
    disgustedly watches Hot Rod drive up the
    mountain.

    KUP (CONT'D)
    (to sound like swearing)
    Cam bustin', turbo revvin' young punk.

    CUT TO:

    MOUNTAIN ABOVE AUTOBOT CITY- LOOKOUT POINT

    Hot Rod arrives at a viewing platform carved in mountainside
    and TRANSFORMS back to humanoid mode. Daniel rushes to a set
    of PUBLIC VIEWING BINOCULARS and peers into them.

    HOT ROD
    This is it! Now take a squint through
    those babies.

    DANIEL
    Hot Rod, look! There's a hole in the
    shuttle!

    HOT ROD
    What!?

    DANIEL'S P.O.V - BINOCULAR MATTE - THE SHUTTLE

    The hole Megatron blasted in order to get into the shuttle
    mars the otherwise perfect exterior of the ship.

    ANGLE ON DANIEL AND HOT ROD

    Hot Rod looks up and a pair of futuristic binoculars pop out
    of his eyes.

    10.



    HOT ROD'S POV - THE SHUTTLE

    Hot Rod's vision, now, infinitely better than human vision,
    spots something truly disturbing -- -- Starscream, and
    several Constructicons inside the ship!

    HOT ROD (O.S.)
    Decepticons!

    ANGLE ON HOT ROD

    Drawing his gun, he starts FIRING on the shuttle.

    HOT ROD
    This is for Ironhide. As so's this!

    ANGLE ON THE SHUTTLE

    Rays streak through the hole searing...

    STARSCREAM
    He ducks away from the door.

    STARSCREAM (CONT'D)
    I'm hit!

    ANGLE ON MEGATRON

    Standing behind a pair of Decepticons who pilot the shuttle,
    he turns to see...

    THE CONSTRUCTICONS
    Firing out of the hole.

    MEGATRON
    He's furious.

    MEGATRON (CONT'D)
    You imbecile, our cover is blown!

    STARSCREAM
    It was your stupid strategy!

    CUT TO:

    ANGLE ON KUP, CONSTRUCTION CREW

    Kup and the Autobot Construction Crew watch Hot Rod shooting
    at the shuttle.

    KUP
    What's that darn fool doing? Hound looks
    up and points.

    (CONTINUED)

    11.
    CONTINUED:


    HOUND
    Decepticons!

    ANGLE ON THE SHUTTLE

    Suddenly it cracks open, and Decepticons shoot out of the
    wreckage like toys from a pinata.

    CLOSE - MEGATRON

    In mid-air

    MEGATRON
    (shouting to forces)
    Attack!
    (he looks down and fires)

    HOT ROD AND DANIEL

    Hot Rod pulls Daniel back as Megatron's BLAST SHEARS OFF the
    VIEWING PLATFORM which crumbles and falls down the steep
    mountain!

    HOT ROD
    Hang on!

    Putting Daniel under one arm, he pivots and kicks up at...
    ...Hook and Scavenger who are descending on him in humanoid
    mode... ...causing them both to crash against the
    mountainside which starts a... ...landslide which Hot Rod
    "rides" down the slope, pursued by... ... Decepticon FIRE.

    HOT ROD
    (SHOUTING)
    WHoooooooaaah

    ANGLE ON BOTTOM OF MOUNTAIN SLOPE - BLITZWING

    Blitzwing flies down in jet mode, transforms to robot mode,
    looks up at the "slide riding" Hot Rod and Daniel, transforms
    to tank mode and takes aim.

    BLITZWING
    (amused)
    Come on down, Autobrat!

    ON HOT ROD AND DANIEL

    as Hot Rod tumbles, he covers Daniel with his arms and tries
    unsuccessfully to slow his fall.

    HOT ROD
    Yiiiiiiiiii!

    (CONTINUED)

    12.
    CONTINUED:


    ON BLITZWING
    about to fire, when...

    ...Kup's arm descends into SHOT, spinning Blitzwing's turret
    around. Blitzwing's blast, scorches...

    SHRAPNEL
    who is flying nearby.

    BLITZWING
    transforms to robot mode and turns as...
    Kup comes flying, feet first, into
    Blitzwing knocking him off the mountain
    ledge.

    FOLLOW Kup as he lands in front of Hot Rod, who is just
    coming to a stop at the bottom with Daniel.

    HOT ROD
    Not bad for an old timer!

    KUP
    (gruffly)
    Old timer?! That's something you'll
    never be if you don't get back to the
    city. You know what we used to do with
    cocky, insubordinate upstarts?

    HOT ROD
    (interrupting)
    Save it.

    STARSCREAM
    transforming into jet mode, fires on them
    with laser bursts which...

    ... chew up the ground beside them.

    HOT ROD AND KUP

    with Daniel race toward Autobot City, transforming into
    vehicle mode as shots gouge the terrain around them.

    CUT TO:

    PERCEPTOR IN MICROSCOPE MODE ON "BATTLEMENT" OF AUTOBOT CITY

    he watches...

    PERCEPTOR'S POV - THE DECEPTICON ATTACK

    Megatron, Insecticons, Constructicons, and other Decepticon
    forces attack the city from the sky and ground.

    (CONTINUED)

    13.
    CONTINUED:


    PERCEPTOR
    transforms to humanoid and runs
    toward...... ... Three new Autobots,
    ARCEE, a lovely female Autobot of about
    Hot Rod's age, SPRINGER, a very muscular
    and bantering "Indiana Jones" type
    Autobot and ULTRA MAGNUS, the large and
    soldierly City Commander.

    PERCEPTOR
    Ultra Magnus.....a cursory evaluation of
    Decepticon capability indicates a
    distinct tactical deficit!

    ULTRA MAGNUS
    In other words, Perceptor...

    SPRINGER
    (translating)
    We're outnumbered!

    He turns and FIRES from his hip.

    DIRGE IN JET MODE

    Zooms in to strafe as...

    SPRINGER'S BLAST...

    ...Explodes on his wing tip.

    SPRINGER, ULTRA MAGNUS AND OTHERS

    as Decepticon BOMBS AND LASER FIRE pour in on the City.

    ULTRA MAGNUS
    Springer, Arcee, transform Autobot City!

    HIGH ANGLE - LOOKING DOWN ON COURTYARD - TRACKING SPRINGER
    AND ARCEE

    STARSCREAM (V.O.)
    Pathetic fools!

    STARSCREAM
    TRANSFORMS and hovers in robot mode,
    firing all around them as they...

    ..dive for the switch and pull it down.




    (CONTINUED)

    14.
    CONTINUED:


    STARSCREAM
    There's no escape...Uuuuh! Just then, the
    floor of the courtyard STARTS
    TRANSFORMING - - the center line of the
    floor snaps shut like the halves of a
    gigantic steel shelled clam, trapping
    Starscream's foot.

    STARSCREAM
    Agggggggh! My foot!

    ANGLE ON SPRINGER AND ARCEE

    as they make it through an archway which TRANSFORMS INTO A
    STEEL SHIELD as they run through

    ON STARSCREAM - HIS FOOT STILL CAUGHT IN "CLAM" OF COURTYARD

    He struggles to get free before he is crunched by the still
    transforming city. In the nick of time, he shoots a "shoe
    horn" like projection from his wrist and pulls his boot
    free, then... ...dodges away. ... The "clam" shape RETRACTS
    COMPLETELY and more armored shielding SLIDES INTO PLACE TO
    COVER where the Courtyard was. He winces in mid-air and flies
    away as the city continues to transform to a fortress below.

    CUT TO:

    ANOTHER ANGLE - THE TRANSFORMING CITY

    The towers and buildings of the city, picot and retract.. ...
    withdrawing like periscopes, turning and vanishing into
    steel shield coverings.

    ON MEGATRON
    as he FLIES OVER SCENE, BLASTING this way
    and that, shouting

    MEGATRON
    Breach their defenses!

    ON INSECTICONS
    who are trailing Megatron, attack the
    fast CLOSING CITY, trying to GNAW AND
    DEVOUR their way through the PORTS and
    BRIDGES leading inside.

    KICKBACK

    KUP, HOT ROD AND DANIEL

    as Kup and Hot Rod are racing down mountain toward the
    transforming city's drawbridge.

    KUP (V.O.)
    The Insecticons are in our way.

    HOT ROD (V.O.)
    Wrong! They're our way in! Yaaaaaaay-
    hah!

    ANOTHER ANGLE
    Hot Rod speeds up, passes Kup and... ...
    rides up and over Kickback's back, using
    it like a stunt driver's ramp to...

    ... hurtle across the open space between Kickback and the
    doorway into the city.

    ON SHRAPNEL
    As Shrapnel looks up and reacts... ...Kup
    hurtles up and over Kickback's back just
    as Kickback is starting to rise to see
    what knocked him face down onto the
    bridge in the first place. ... Kup goes
    SAILING OT OVER OPEN SPACE between
    Kickback's back and the doorway into the
    city- -clobbering Shrapnel, who is in the
    way and landing on the city doorstep,
    driving in as...

    THE DOORWAY
    transforms, shutting down with metal
    shields with a "clank" sound as Kickback
    and Shrapnel both leap at is to... ...
    bite Kup and Hot Rod and instead BREAK
    THEIR TEETH on steel door, falling face
    down with a grunt as LAST BITS OF CITY

    TRANSFORM.

    CUT TO:

    16.



    INT. CITY SIDE OF DRAWBRIDGE

    as Kup and Hot Rod roll in and TRANSFORM where Ultra Magnus
    is waiting for them with Perceptor. Other Autobots are
    moving into battle stations in the b.g. and ALARMS SOUND.
    Daniel looks on in awe.

    ULTRA MAGNUS
    (sternly)
    You can explain your security violation
    later, Hot Rod! Now, man your battle
    station.

    HOT ROD
    I don't have to explain my so called
    violation to you or anyone...

    KUP
    (tugs him along roughly)
    He said "later!"

    Kup moves OFF with Hot Rod and Daniel.

    CUT TO:

    BLASTER ON FORTIFIED " CROWS NEST" LOOKOUT TOWER

    The "Crows Nest" has windows all around and Blaster's seat
    rotates so he can watch action and broadcast battle reports
    like a Top 40 Deejay. Perceptor climbs up ladder into "Crows
    Nest" from lower level. As Blaster speaks, we see Decepticons
    FIRING at the windows of the Crows Nest but the bursts
    explode harmlessly against the glass

    BLASTER
    Lookout and shout! Yow! Explosions rock
    the Crows Nest. Blaster swivels around
    and tilts to see...

    BLASTER'S POV - INSECTICONS

    Chewing on armor plating at the lower edge of the fortified,
    transformed city.

    BLASTER

    Kickback to get sucked into the vacuum.

    BLASTER
    Perceptor joins him.

    BLASTER
    (joyful at his direct hit)
    I'm talkin' hits here, Autobuddies! Hits

    THE WAVES

    BLASTER
    Optimus Prime... Do you read me? The

    Hey, I wasn't worried for a micro-second,

    PRIME'S POV - MEGATRON

    The Decepticon leader stands a hundred yards away, vanishing
    and reappearing with the shifting waves of Generic
    Decepticons that charge back and forth.

    PRIME (V.O.)
    No matter the cost.

    PRIME'S CHARGE: A SERIES OF SHOTS

    PRIME'S CHARGE - HEROIC BATTLE THEME SONG

    Optimus Prime leader and hero of the Autobots charges into
    certain doom. As he battles his way through the Decepticons,
    we HEAR an inspiring anthem of courage, strength and triumph,
    like "Eye of the Tiger". This theme will reprise during the
    film when the Autobots are battling at impossible odds. He
    charges headlong into the Decepticon forces which separate
    him from Megatron. Decepticons fire on him, but he takes
    the shots, and... Spinning and whirling like the Sundance
    Kid, he takes a lot out. Then, Decepticons attempt to block
    his charge and Prime... ... Like a powerback, transforms to
    Truck Mode and barrels into them, sending Decepticons flying
    around like shards of glass hit by a .45. ... finally, he
    is engulfed by an incoming swarm, and it looks like his
    attack is foiled.

    MEGATRON
    as he commands his troops.

    MEGATRON
    Their defenses are broken. Let the
    slaughter begin.

    Then he turns and sees...

    MEGATRON
    Prime!?

    PRIME
    smashing through a wall of lesser
    Decepticons.

    PRIME
    One shall stand, one shall fall.

    MEGATRON
    Why throw away your life so recklessly?

    Dirge takes a sneaky leap at him... Optimus stiffarms him
    with a shuddering clank... ...then turns him upside down with
    one hand and... ...drives him headfirst into the rocky
    ground, letting him crumple and fall.

    OPTIMUS PRIME
    That's a question you should ask
    yourself.

    MEGATRON
    hurls himself at Optimus Prime... ....
    both tumble into the walls of the City...
    ...denting the walls and causing the
    electronic panels inside to short
    circuit, surrounding them with a fiery
    nimbus of crackling electrical energy.

    Ultra Magnus in car carrier mode barrels out of city carrying
    several Autobots. He and the others transform into robot
    mode and fire lasers at the Decepticons.

    INTERCUT TO HOT ROD, KUP, DANIEL, ARCEE, BLASTER, PERCEPTOR,

    fighting their way to the battle of the titans.

    HOT ROD

    it aside as he lunges at-

    MEGATRON
    who claws his fingers and digs them into
    Prime's eyes

    MEGATRON
    I'll rip out your optics! Optimus grabs
    Megatron's clawed hand in one of his
    hands, twists it in see-sawing test of
    strength which... Optimus wins in a judo
    toss which sends Megatron - - skidding
    face first through steel rubble, in a
    shower of sparks until he crashes into
    the side of the city.

    ANGLE ON HOT ROD

    He dispatches a Decepticon and turns to Prime.

    his midsection now glowing and smoking, a huge hole where the
    Blaster has struck.

    with both fists clasped together.

    OPTIMUS PRIME

    Never!

    He bashes in Megatron's torso casing, fracturing the sides
    which split, spilling wires, fuses, lights, circuitry.
    Megatron falls! Prime falls to his knees, tries to rise,
    collapses to his side and falls slowly back. HOT ROD runs
    over to him.

    HOT ROD
    Optimus! Forgive me!

    ANOTHER ANGLE- ASTROTRAIN

    as he MOVES ONTO SCENE in Humanoid mode, showing battle burns

    ANGLE ON ASTROTRAIN

    Decepticons make way for Starscream as he tosses the nearly
    lifeless Megatron into the shuttle and gets in. Then,
    standing at the door, he kicks other Decepticons away.

    TIGHTEN SHOT ON ULTRA MAGNUS AND OPTIMUS PRIME

    A distraught Ultra Magnus nods, reaches out with free hand
    and points his forefinger at Optimus Prime's chest. Then,
    pressing a button on Prime's chest, a small, secret doorway
    opens, and we see something extremely bright glowing in
    there. Ultra Magnus, nearly blinded by the intense light,
    reaches in, and lifts out --

    THE AUTOBOT LEADERSHIP MATRIX,

    -- and holds it for a moment in his hand.

    ANGLE ON ALL

    The bright light, which emanates from the perfect crystal,
    seems to blind everybody and washes all color out of the
    shot. Then, slowly, Ultra Magnus moves it into his own chest,
    closes the door, and the light is gone, save for a momentary,
    and extremely powerful glow from his eyes.

    ON KUP, HOT ROD, ARCEE AND PERCEPTOR

    MEGATRON
    The point is, he is dead! And the Matrix
    died with him.

    UNICRON
    Your bargaining posture is highly

    you with a new body, and new troops to
    command.

    MEGATRON
    And...

    UNICRON
    And nothing.

    You belong to me now.

    MEGATRON
    I belong to nobody.

    UNICRON
    Perhaps I misjudged you. Proceed on your
    way to oblivion. The Mist appears and
    starts to dissolve Megatron.

    MEGATRON
    (pleading)
    No, no. I accept your terms. I accept!

    UNICRON
    Excellent! Behold - Galvatron! X-ray
    images: wiring, circuitry, etc. flash on
    and off as a new and larger being starts
    to form, changing from dented Megatron to
    a huge, new creation: Galvatron.

    THE TRANSFORMATION - CREATION

    ends in a blinding flash and Galvatron - who still resembles
    Megatron - laughs and flexes his muscles and stretches. His
    voice is deeper, different from Megatron's

    GALVATRON
    Long live Galvatron!

    UNICRON
    And these shall be your minions...

    THE DECEPTICON HALL OF HEROES - STARSCREAM

    This is the closest thing the Decepticons have to a throne
    room. It is a massive, circular room with tombs of old
    leaders, and a raised area where Starscream stands.

    37.



    STARSCREAM AND OTHERS

    The Decepticon plane looks slightly ridiculous with cloak on
    his shoulders and Thrust and Ramjet at his side, weapons held
    high, but ready for action should anybody question
    Starscream's rule. In front of him stands Astrotrain holding
    a huge Metallic CROWN over his head.

    OTHER DECEPTICONS

    show their displeasure.

    STARSCREAM

    Here's a clue!

    HIS P.O.V -GALVATRON

    as Galvatron transforms into cannon, FIRING A HUGE BURST ON
    STARSCREAM as BLAST hits him. For a moment, he retains his
    shape then piece by piece, he falls apart. Only a pair of
    boots remain on the floor.

    ULTRA MAGNUS
    Daniel, I'll do everything I can for

    HOT ROD
    And what are we going to do when we get

    You're right! It can.

    Oh yeah, we inversed polarities.

    HOT ROD (O.S.)
    That'll tear the ship apart!

    KUP (O.S.)
    You got a better idea?!! With that, the
    ship seems to stop, on a dime, in mid
    air! The missiles zoom past it.

    INT. THE SHIP (KUP AND HOT ROD)

    Hot Rod watches wide-eyed, as Kup watches ahead warily, hands
    on the controls.

    HOT ROD
    Okay, so you were right.

    KUP
    Don't run your programs until they're
    debugged.

    ANGLE OUT THE VIEWSCREEN

    Suddenly, the moleculon missiles, reverse course and start
    coming back.

    HOT ROD
    They're coming back.

    KUP
    Let's just hope we've screwed up their
    trajectories.

    ANGLE ON THE MISSILES

    The missiles sidewind towards them, then their paths cross
    and

    BOOOM!

    Everything flashes white.

    ANGLE ON THE DINOBOT SHUTTLE

    HOT ROD
    Whew!!!

    Kup and Hot Rod look forward, their eyes, blinking, as if
    strained.

    It sits next to a gigantic alien-made moon. Suddenly, a
    hatch opens and a massive grabber that looks like a lobster
    claw shoots out at it.

    ANGLE ON HOT ROD

    He sees the claw coming out of the viewscreen.

    HOT ROD
    Dive!

    ANGLE THROUGH THE VIEWSCREEN

    The claw snaps on the front of the ship, smashing the window
    and...

    ANOTHER ANGLE
    crushing the area between Hot Rod and
    Kup.

    as they man control panel in cockpit. In the background,
    Blurr and Arcee work to patch other holes in hull and Daniel
    helps them. Perceptor slowly plots coordinates on light-up
    table, oblivious to SHAKES AND ROCKINGS of their ship.

    superstructure explode toward camera and past camera
    accompanied by explosive sound and then, silence! ... Where
    the shuttle had been there is now...nothing! Just loose
    asteroids and clouds of space dust

    CYCLONUS
    The Autobots have been terminated!

    GALVATRON
    Excellent. And soon we shall say the
    same of that infernal Unicron. Suddenly,
    Galvatron's body begins to twist, and he
    writhes in pain.

    GALVATRON (CONT)
    Aaaah! Take me to Unicron...Aaaah!

    LONG SHOT ON THE HUGE FLAT TOP

    CUT TO:

    KUP AND HOT ROD ON THE RED DESERT SHORE OF THE ENERGY SEA

    Kup stands impatiently while Hot Rod reassembles them.

    HOT ROD
    Well...what do you think? Kup feels his
    elbow joint, twists his neck side to side
    and gets creaks and squeaks and moves
    legs in odd, creaky way as he is trying
    himself out.

    Yeah, you even got rid of a nasty burr on

    (in vehicular mode)
    Of all the circuit glitched diode blowin'
    dim-wittery... I told you a part was

    we watch Hot Rod and Kup move off into the distance as we:

    DISSOLVE TO:

    ANOTHER PART OF QUINTESSON

    Kup and Hot Rod walk along a swampy, marshy area. Suddenly,
    there are several loud gurgles, and we can see the shapes of
    something terrible emerging through the muck. Hot Rod spins
    to fire, but Kup bats down his arm.

    PAN TO SHOW

    EIGHT SHARKTICONS (in humanoid mode) surrounding them. The
    Sharkticons are smaller than the Autobots, but they look ugly
    and vicious.

    KUP
    Don't act hostile. I'll use the
    universal greeting.

    HOT ROD
    Universal Greeting.

    KUP
    Watch. I'll have them eating out of my
    hand.

    HOT ROD
    Or our faces.

    Kup holds out his hands to show that he has no weapon. Then,
    he addresses them...

    KUP
    Bah-weep-Graaaaagnah wheep ni ni bong...

    HOT ROD
    (mocking, mimicking)
    Bah-weep-Graaaaagnah wheep ni ni bong...
    The Sharkticons look interested.

    SHARKTICONS

    (GROWL VERSION OF THE SAME

    THING)

    KUP
    See, the Universal Greeting works every
    time.
    (pause)
    Now, without making any sudden moves,
    give them an Energon goody. Kup reaches
    into his belt, presses a button and pulls
    out an Energon cube. Hot Rod, somewhat
    suspicious of the whole process does the
    came.

    They hold out the cubes and two of the Sharkticons take the
    Energon cubes, like dogs getting a treat. Then, the other six
    show up looking for cubes.

    HOT ROD
    This is getting expensive.

    KUP
    Don't worry, they'll reciprocate. They
    each hand out three Energon goodies to
    the remaining six Sharkticons... The
    Sharkticons eat them happily. Then, they
    back off, eyeing the two Autobots with
    menace.

    I thought they were supposed to

    KUP
    (not sure of himself)
    Customs vary from place to place.
    Suddenly, the Sharkticons transform to
    their vicious mode and lunge at them.

    The two robots, taken by surprise, fall backwards. PAN FROM
    the fallen robots to an area behind a tree. For just a
    moment, we see a small yellow Autobot in robot mode. There,
    then, as quickly as we realize what it is, it transforms into
    automode and vanishes in a flash. It was Wheelie.

    THE SHARKTICON CAMP ON QUINTESSON - KUP, HOT ROD AND
    SHARKTICONS

    Sharkticons march Kup and Hot Rod into a HOLDING PEN within a
    walled compound. As we FOLLOW THEM INTO PEN we PULL BACK and
    PAN to establish that entry procession is being watched by...

    THE QUINTESSONS
    slender, spindly framed robotic creatures
    with oversized five sided heads, each
    side bearing a different mechanistic face
    with a different expression on each -
    smiling, angry, grimacing, suspicious and
    the fifth face is not yet to be seen. As
    Hot Rod and Kup are led to certain death
    in the Quintesson dungeons, harsh,
    dissonant, metallic and terrifying music
    plays, underscoring the brutal evil they
    face,

    KUP (V.O.)
    Reminds me of the Niter Slave Mines on
    Golgonath Seven....

    HOT ROD
    Every place reminds you of some place
    else.....

    Experience, lad. You should learn to
    appreciate it.

    A lot of good it's done us so far!

    HIS P.O.V.- THE QUINTESSONS

    as we feature the Leader Quintesson who is taller and wears a
    different color robe from others. He is watching arrival of
    Kup and Hot Rod and his faces rotate so it goes from smiling
    face to suspicious face to angry face to furious grimace.

    RESUME ON HOT ROD AND KUP

    as Sharkticons shove and prod them, JOLTING them into the
    holding pen and locking the gate. Then, they install
    RESTRAINING BOLTS.

    HOT ROD
    I can't transform!

    KUP
    They're restraining bolts, lad.

    HOT ROD

    We got to get a new travel agent....
    What is this place?

    PAN FROM HIS P.O.V. - A SHADOWED, ALCOVE LIKE HUT

    as a figure moves forward slightly and speaks in a harsh,
    bass'o voice. It is GRANIX. We saw him in the first scene,
    escaping from his planet when Unicron ate it. {Note: The
    script says *G*ranix here. Not my mistake.}

    KRANIX
    The world of the savage Sharkticons and
    their cruel masters the Quintessons.
    They hunt down those who try to escape
    the wrath of Unicron, and put them on
    trial.

    KUP
    But what if they're innocent?

    KRANIX
    Guilty or innocent, the sentence is
    always the same - death!

    I wonder if there's any connection
    between it and Galvatron.

    Suddenly, a Quintesson Guard roars in...

    QUINTESSON GUARD (V.O.)
    That one!

    All turn and look off, reacting as two Guards thunder in,
    grab Granix and pull him back out of the door. {NOTE: Another
    instance of the spelling of Granix}

    ANOTHER ANGLE - INCLUDING THE LEAD QUINTESSON

    as he points at Kup and Hot Rod

    QUINTESSON GUARD
    Soon, you too shall receive your
    sentence.

    THEIR POV - OUT THE WINDOW THE ARENA

    Kranix stands on what almost looks like a wide diving board
    over a watery (or oily) pit teeming with Sharkticons.

    LEAD QUINTESSON
    Jury, have you reached a verdict?

    JUROR #1
    We have your honor.

    LEAD QUINTESSON
    (to jury of Quintessons)
    Guilty.....Or innocent. I repeat.

    ON SHUTTLE - TRACKING

    It plummets through the mountains and canyons of junk,
    narrowly avoiding crashing, but frequently hitting junk
    pinnacles or sides of junk walls, and causing avalanches of
    junk. By the time the ship lands, it is nearly
    indistinguishable from the junk.

    I think Daniel can make himself useful
    with....this! It used to be Spike's.

    "suit")

    DANIEL
    Wow! Dad's exo-suit. He told me about
    it but I never saw it.

    ARCEE

    She starts helping him into the exo-suit.

    ON DANIEL
    as he gets inside the "suit" which fits
    over his body like a grid-work metal
    "cage."

    Daniel clips "cage" of Exo-Suit shut and stands up inside the
    gridwork which makes him taller and broader. He moves
    awkwardly, barely able to advance a step

    SPRINGER
    Just think about what you want to do
    before you do it!

    DANIEL
    brows knitted, thinking.

    SPRINGER
    Don't fight it Dan-O.

    He suddenly starts moving rapidly backwards, then sideways,
    then forward, then he starts dancing rapidly, then bounces
    off walls... ..spinning upside down, then flips over several
    times and lands in a splatter, legs spread, arms this way and

    around them and a long vista of junk mountains and spires of
    weathered junk-rock.

    DANIEL (V.O.)

    This must be the junk capital of the
    universe!

    LONG SHOT- DANIEL AND THE OTHERS

    as they start DIGGING for parts to repair the ship, sinister
    Junkions begin to emerge from the junk to watch them. Their
    leader, WRECK-GAR, speaks to his fellow Junkions.

    WRECK-GAR

    rumble)
    Stop thief! No welcome-wagon, "hello

    EXT. THE GATE TO THE QUINTESSON PALACE

    At first, we see only the face of a sinister Quintesson
    gatekeeper, backed up by heavily armed Sharkticons.

    QUINTESSON
    Greetings, noble strangers.

    ANGLE ON THE DINOBOTS

    They stand at the gate, looking more like kids showing up at
    your door wondering if you can come out and play, than like
    serious robots on a serious mission.

    GRIMLOCK
    Yes, me, Grimlock, noble! Me, Grimlock
    search for friends.

    ANGLE ON QUINTESSON AND GRIMLOCK

    The Quintesson, showing his friendly face, smiles.

    QUINTESSON
    And who might they be?

    GRIMLOCK
    Autobots. Hot Rod and Kup.

    QUINTESSON
    (feigning recognition)
    Oh yes. A young one and an old one.

    GRIMLOCK
    Yes. You know friends. Where are they?

    QUINTESSON
    They went down that path. He points to...

    A PATH
    It probably isn't lined with primroses,
    but it should be.

    Galvatron stands upon the demonic planet, in an extremely
    contorted position.

    GALVATRON
    Why do you torture me?!

    VARIOUS ANGLES ON UNICRON

    We have no idea where this godly voice is coming from, but

    GALVATRON
    Destroyed, with him.

    things start to happen all around them.

    (taps his head hard)

    ANGLE ON THE GROUND - IN FRONT OF SLAG

    Suddenly, a section of stones drop away in front of Slag
    revealing a spiked pit...

    SLAG
    Me, Slag say you are full of beryllium
    balony. He is just about to fall in
    when...

    ANGLE ON GRIMLOCK AND SLAG

    Grimlock, in dino mode, slaps him with his tail, knocking him
    away an instant before he steps into the hole...

    GRIMLOCK
    Me, Grimlock, say you full of cesium
    salami! Slag gets up...

    SLAG
    Beryllium balony!

    GRIMLOCK
    Argh!

    ANGLE ON GRIMLOCK

    He is about to pounce on Slag when a massive tree, which is
    actually more like a sword, suddenly is spring and arcs
    toward him. The machete like blade strikes the ground,
    between Grimlock and Slag narrowly missing them. He turns
    and sees the thing stocking in the ground.

    GRIMLOCK
    Me, Grimlock think trees here are cheap
    model.

    SLAG
    Like your head! (laughs at own joke)
    Grimlock jumps on Slag and wrestles him
    to the ground. Suddenly, a SQUEAKY, ODDLY
    CHILDISH VOICE speaks from o.s.



    (CONTINUED)

    71.
    CONTINUED:


    SQUEAKY VOICE (WHEELIE)
    Friends find. Look behind.

    GRIMLOCK
    (furious)
    Who say that?

    HIS P.O.V. - WHEELIE

    WHEELIE is the Wolf Boy of Quintesson - an Autobot who's been
    evading the Sharkticons since his parents' ship crashed,
    killing everybody else in his party. He wears a necklace of
    Sharkticon teeth, packs a three bladed laser knife and a
    special SLING which hurls FIRE STONES. He fears nothing,
    especially the Dinobots, and he cockily struts into the
    clear... ... walks right up Sludge's tail onto Sludge's back
    and then shinnies up his neck and jumps onto... ... Slag's
    head where he stands eye to eye with Grimlock

    WHEELIE
    Friends find. Look behind. Many Face
    lie. You fool! You buy!

    GRIMLOCK AND WHEELIE

    GRIMLOCK
    (eyes blaze, furious)
    Me, Grimlock, "fool?"

    WHEELIE
    (smiling breezily)
    Picture you got. Now fool you not!
    (he laughs in a wild, metallic
    cackle)
    Grimlock raises a claw to swipe Wheelie
    off Slag's head

    GRIMLOCK
    Me, Grimlock, no like you!

    ON WHEELIE
    as he scowls and quickly loads FIRESTONE
    IN SLING and slings it onto Grimlock's
    nose where it EXPLODES making Grimlock
    yowl and pull back, feeling his reddened
    nose and speaking through his nose
    angrily

    GRIMLOCK
    (continuing)
    Doooooooow! Why boy hit by dose?



    (CONTINUED)

    72.
    CONTINUED:


    WHEELIE
    (folds arms across his chest)
    Wheelie say, find friends today!
    (nods defiantly)
    Grimlock and Slag react as we

    CUT TO:

    THE QUINTESSON "COURTROOM"

    Kup and Hot Rod stand on the platform over the Sharkticon
    pit. They are "bound" by restraining bolts.

    ANGLE ON THE QUINTESSON JUDGE

    QUINTESSON JUDGE
    Before we deliver your verdict, would you
    like to beg for your lives?

    ANGLE ON KUP AND HOT ROD

    Kup turns to Hot Rod.

    KUP
    Remember when you put me together today?

    HOT ROD
    (sarcastic)
    Sure, that's all I got to think about.

    KUP
    I know what part you forgot.

    QUINTESSON JUDGE (V.O.)
    Silence or I'll hold you in contempt of
    this court.

    HOT ROD
    I have nothing but contempt for this
    court.

    ANGLE ON THE QUINTESSON JUDGES

    Suddenly, their heads swivel around to deaths heads.

    ON KUP AND HOT ROD

    The platform drops away and they tumble...

    KUP AND HOT ROD - TRACKING

    Suddenly, Kup in double-jointed fashion slips out of the
    restraining bolt...

    (CONTINUED)

    73.
    CONTINUED:


    KUP
    That doohickey you lost was part of my
    shoulder socket. Watch this, lad...
    without it, I'm double jointed as
    Houdini.

    Then, he transforms to humanoid mode and shoots off Hot Rod's
    bolt.

    HOT ROD
    Wish you'd figured that out a little
    sooner.

    KUP
    Better late than never!

    ANGLE ON THE SHARKTICON PIT

    In full humanoid mode, they land, their weapons drawn.

    ANGLE ON ALL

    Kup and Hot Rod fire, driving some Sharkticons back.

    HOT ROD
    They've got more Sharkticons than we have
    photon charges!

    Kup transforms to Auto mode.

    KUP
    Let's hold a demolition derby! Then, he
    roars into a bunch of them, slamming a
    massive stack into the wall.

    ANGLE ON HOT ROD

    He transforms, too and does the same thing.

    ANGLE ON THE SHARKTICON PIT

    As fast as the Autobots can run the miserable things over,
    new swarms of them come out.

    ANGLE ON KUP AND HOT ROD

    They clear out a circle in the center of the pit and
    transform to humanoid mode.

    HOT ROD
    Didn't even bend a fender.



    (CONTINUED)

    74.
    CONTINUED:


    KUP
    Yeah, but look. There are a lot more of
    those cam dinging, grill-crackin' things.

    WHAT HE SEES

    is a wave of larger, more powerful Sharkticons.

    HOT ROD
    We can't hold out forever, but we can
    give them one whopper of a repair bill.

    ANGLE ON THE SHARKTICONS

    They charge Kup and Hot Rod Kup and Hot Rod fire into them,
    destroying several, but are.... ... Soon overrun. The
    Sharkticons crawl all over them, munching on their metal.

    SUDDENLY --

    DINOBOTS (O.S.)
    (WAR WHOOP)

    ANGLE ON THE DINOBOTS

    They fly down and land on the pile, transforming into Dinobot
    mode.

    ASSORTED SHOTS OF DINOBOT CARNAGE

    SLUDGE in brontosaurus mode, swats several around with his
    tail, while stomping them with his feet.

    GRIMLOCK
    Lowers his teeth to devour a much smaller
    Sharkticon, the Sharkticon bares his
    teeth, realizes that he's a second
    stringer, and scampers away.

    GRIMLOCK
    Me Grimlock want to munch metal! Slag
    barrels into Sharkticons, making a quick
    shishkebob out of them, while...

    Swoop picks two up with his claws, flies in the air and drops
    them on other Sharkticons.

    THE SHARKTICONS
    suddenly back off and begin transforming
    (bowing) to the dinobots.

    75.



    ANGLE ON ALL

    Kup and Hot Rod dig themselves out of a pile of Sharkticon
    parts.

    HOT ROD
    I never thought I'd be so happy to see
    those big bozos.

    ANGLE ON GRIMLOCK

    He turns to Hot Rod.

    GRIMLOCK
    Me Grimlock no bozo. Me king!

    ANGLE ON QUINTESSON JUDGES

    They look down, their angry faces showing.

    QUINTESSON JUDGE
    Sharkticons! Execute them.

    ANGLE ON GRIMLOCK

    He points to the Quintessons...

    GRIMLOCK
    Me Grimlock say execute them.

    THE SHARKTICONS
    for a brief instant, don't seem to know
    what to do. Then, they charge the
    Quintessons.

    THE CHASE
    The Quintessons start to flee, but it's
    clear that the Sharkticons, who climb
    over the stacked bodies of other
    Sharkticons, are going to catch them.

    KUP
    I think the problems on this planet will
    be solved very shortly.

    ON HOT ROD

    HOT ROD
    But what about our problems. We need a
    ship.

    WHEELIE
    WHEELIE You get a ship if I get a trip.

    76.



    ANGLE ON HOT ROD

    He turns to the little, feral, robot.

    HOT ROD
    Who are you.

    SLAG AND WHEELIE

    The dinobot lifts up Wheelie.

    SLAG
    Him Wheelie, him friend.

    HOT ROD
    HOT ROD He'll be mine too, if he can find
    a Quintesson ship.

    ANGLE ON WHEELIE

    He points into the distance...

    WHAT WE SEE

    is the strangest looking corkscrew ship we've every seen
    sticking out of the ground.

    HOT ROD
    That's a ship?

    EXT. THE SECOND MOON OF CYBERTRON

    PAN ACROSS an enormous stockpile of weaponry as we hear the
    terrible roar we have come to associate with Unicron.

    SPIKE
    If this doesn't do it, nothing will.

    ANGLE ON SPIKE

    He sets a timer to 20 seconds. The L.E.D. clicks down.

    BUMBLEBEE
    now with a new bumpersticker which is a
    Unicron with a red circle and slash
    through it, looks very fidgety.

    BUMBLEBEE
    Let's get out of here.

    77.



    BUMBLEBEE AND SPIKE

    They run over to a small space ship as... ... The timer
    counts down.

    THE SPACESHIP
    takes off.

    ANGLE ON THE SECOND MOON

    Now, for the first time, we see what is really going on.
    Unicron looms behind it, about to do the big munch.

    ANGLE ON BUMBLEBEE AND SPIKE

    They roar away.

    ON UNICRON
    His mist surrounds the planet...

    ON BUMBLEBEE AND SPIKE

    They stop their ship in space.

    BUMBLEBEE
    Five, four, three, two, one...

    ON THE SECOND MOON AND UNICRON

    BLAMMMOLA!

    An incredible display of fireworks goes off, seemingly
    blowing Unicron to smithereens.

    ON BUMBLEBEE AND SPIKE

    They slap palms. Then, they look up, horrified.

    BUMBLEBEE
    It isn't even dented.

    SPIKE
    Let's get out of here!

    ON UNICRON
    The great Maw opens and we hear a grand
    cosmic roar! Suddenly, the smoke and
    space junk from the explosion are sucked
    into his mouth.

    ON BUMBLEBEE AND SPIKE

    They try to fly away.

    Whose great mouth shuts when he's got the human and the
    Autobot.

    WIDE SHOT TO INCLUDE DANIEL

    as he helps Blurr install a junk part.

    DANIEL

    (to Blurr)
    Want me to do that?

    BLURR
    Weld? You? Really? Well, why not? Give it
    a try, but think it through first! Daniel
    knits his brow, extends FINGER OF EXO-
    GLOVE which is part of exo-suit.

    CLOSE ON EXO GLOVE AND DANIEL'S HAND

    as hand quivers and his finger shoots out a tiny flame which

    Your estimated survival time is 10
    seconds.

    ANGLE ON ULTRA MAGNUS

    He shoots at the junk walls.

    ULTRA MAGNUS
    Then use that time to escape! The Matrix
    was designed for an emergency like this.

    WRECK-GAR AND AN ARMY OF JUNKIONS

    as they are moving in battle array towards the Shuttle.
    Junkions are an interesting species. They ride themselves.
    That is, the Junkions ride transforms of themselves, so that
    if their vehicle breaks down, the driver will become the
    vehicle, and the vehicle will transform to become the driver.
    They are gibbering, singing almost a wild kind of junk-rock,
    war-cry song which, like their language, is constructed of
    bits and pieces of the museum junk of our culture - a
    humorous aggressive song which makes a surreal kind of sense.
    "Slice 'em dice 'em... And that's all folks or your money
    back..."

    ON WRECK-GAR
    as he roars into the lead and shows his
    teeth

    ON SPRINGER
    He looks over, astonished.

    Wheelie riding Sludge's neck.

    INTERCUT TO SPRINGER, DANIEL, ARCEE ET. AL FOR REACTIONS

    ON WRECK-GAR AND OTHER JUNKIONS

    as they react to hot Rod's smile, Wreck-Gar trying to mimic
    that smile to his followers who laugh

    ON HOT ROD

    as he steps up beside Kup and gently pushes Kup's rifle aside

    HOT ROD
    (aside to Kup, still holding
    smile)
    Guns aren't exactly friendly.

    KUP
    (through his teeth to Hot Rod)
    Neither are they in case you haven't
    noticed.

    HOT ROD
    (sotto)
    What was the Universal greeting again?

    WRECK-GAR
    growls and slips a SNIPPER, BLOW TORCH
    CUTTING TOOL out of a holster and starts
    toward Hot Rod with it

    HOT ROD
    HOT ROD
    (big smile)
    Bah weep graaaagnah wheep ni ni bong?

    WRECK-GAR AND OTHER JUNKIONS

    They look at one another, blink, then beam with smiles

    WRECK-GAR
    Bah weep graaaagnah wheep ni ni bong?

    HOT ROD
    (nodding, smiling)
    Bah weep graaaagnah wheep ni ni bong?

    (presses energon sticks
    forward)
    As Hot Rod says this...

    ...Wreck-Gar takes the energon sticks and holds them over his
    head and... ...all the Junkions smile and cheer and start
    chanting the universal greeting phrase, laughing, clapping
    their hands and dancing around, taking Arcee's hand and...
    ... taking Springer and Perceptor and Daniel out into center
    of a square dance type gathering, moving back and forth with
    them dancing happily, singing the universal greeting in a
    melodic, rhythmic way

    EVERYBODY
    Bah weep graaaagnah wheep ni ni bong Bah
    weep graaaagnah wheep ni ni bong! Bah
    weep graaaagnah wheep ni ni bong....

    WRECK-GAR
    hugs Hot Rod, and Perceptor who winces
    and tries to enjoy it, and then hugs
    Daniel, Wheelie, Arcee, laughing and
    dancing as SINGING goes.

    ON GRIMLOCK
    as he reacts to Wreck-Gar kissing his leg

    GRIMLOCK
    Yuck! Me Grimlock, not a kisser! Me,
    Grimlock, a king!

    WHEELIE
    claps his hands and gleefully makes
    noises as he hops about, dancing with
    Junkions until we CUT TO

    WRECK-GAR
    as he stands on top of platform and RINGS
    JUNK BELLS AND SIRENS getting silence and
    smiling as he waves hands all around

    WRECK-GAR
    Have a nice day and please, close cover
    before striking, friends! Amigos, buddies
    and side kicks, Breep drit, aw rootie! So
    say the Junkions!
    (holds hands over his head)

    ANGLE ON HOT ROD

    He looks at them, strangely.

    HOT ROD
    Where did you learn to talk like that?

    90.



    ANGLE ON WRECK-GAR

    He reaches into his body, and about where a heart or some
    other organ would be, he pulls out a Watchman.

    THE WATCHMAN
    On it is a crazy Eddy-type commercial.

    WRECK-GAR
    We talk T.V. You talk some T.V.?

    KUP
    looks around nervously.

    KUP
    I talk some TV. And now, Hot Rod for the
    news. Don't touch that dial. Void where
    prohibited. JUNKIONS cheer wildly while
    the Dinobots react with uncertainty

    RESUME ON WRECK-GAR

    as he points off and shouts happily.

    WRECK-GAR

    blotto friend, soon like brand new with
    ninety day warranty all iciban parts and

    HIS P.O.V. - JUNKIONS WITH ULTRA MAGNUS

    The Junkions move Ultra Magnus' mangled body through an
    amazing assembly line, quickly piecing together his body
    parts, using junk when they can't find a part. Then, they
    lube him, dust him, spray him and polish him. Then, Wreck-Gar
    hits a switch, and Ultra Magnus' eye lights go on.

    WRECK-GAR
    Happy motoring! Cock-a-doodle-do!

    ON ULTRA MAGNUS

    as he steps away from Junkion line of reconstruction and into
    group consisting of Hot Rod, Kup and Springer.

    SPRINGER AND OTHERS
    (Ad lib jubilation)
    Ultra Magnus!

    ULTRA MAGNUS
    You're all alive...

    ULTRA MAGNUS
    It's gone...

    KUP
    And with it, all hope.

    HOT ROD
    No...
    (inspired)
    The matrix will not fail us.

    ARCEE
    Didn't you hear Ultra Magnus. We don't
    have it anymore. Galvatron does.

    HOT ROD
    Then we've got to trust in ourselves, and
    no matter what they odds, destroy
    Unicron.

    ON WRECK-GAR
    His eyes light up.

    WRECK-GAR
    Yeah! Destroy Unicron... Kill the grand
    poobah.... Flush cosmic troubles down the
    drain.

    JUNKIONS

    The Quintesson ship in the BACKGROUND.

    SPRINGER
    Listen, I don't want to rain on anybody's
    parade, but how are we going to move the
    army to Unicron. We don't have enough
    room on that ship.

    No fuss, no muss.
    (to others)
    Hurry, hurry. Sale must end! Rush right
    on down to bridge and test drive latest
    with no obligation.

    Suddenly, several Junkions scramble to concealed doorways in
    the Junk.

    ULTRA MAGNUS
    You have ships here?

    WRECK-GAR
    New, improved Junkion planet, is sleek
    sexy import with turbo handling.

    SPRINGER
    What's he talking about?

    ANGLE ON QUINTESSON

    Suddenly, boosters fire from the back side of the junk, and
    somewhere under all of the junk, we realize is a real space
    ship. Maybe the junk is the space ship. It takes off, bits
    and pieces of junk flying off as it moves.

    SPRINGER
    This is what I call traveling in style.

    DISSOLVE TO:

    LONG SHOT- UNICRON

    as Galvatron stands on the surface of Unicron, holding the
    Matrix.

    GALVATRON (V.O.)
    Listen to me, or suffer the consequences.

    UNICRON
    Aren't we getting pompous?

    GALVATRON
    I now possess that which you most fear.
    Unicron LAUGHS and the force of it rocks
    the surface of the planet, knocking
    Galvatron to his knees.

    GALVATRON
    You will do my bidding, or... Unicron
    roars with laughter.


    (CONTINUED)

    93.
    CONTINUED:


    GALVATRON
    ...taste my wrath.

    He leans down and starts trying to open the matrix.

    ANOTHER ANGLE - FAVORING GALVATRON

    IN THE BACKGROUND, we see Cybertron getting closer. Galvatron
    struggles with the Matrix, but gets a big shock.

    UNICRON
    You underestimate me Galvatron.

    ANOTHER ANGLE - GALVATRON ON UNICRON

    He desperately struggles to open the matrix. The planet
    suddenly starts shaking. Galvatron is bathed in a reddish
    light, and looks up in horror!

    ANGLE ON UNICRON

    A hideous transformation is beginning. The surface of the
    planet in front of Galvatron opens up, and we see that the
    hideous light comes from eyes set on a hideous head!

    GALVATRON AND UNICRON

    Galvatron is maybe the size of a single tooth on the horrible
    head before him.

    UNICRON
    For a time, I considered sparing your
    measly little planet, but now you shall
    witness its dismemberment!

    ANGLE ON GALVATRON

    Suddenly, the ground he stands on drops away, and he falls
    through space... ... Landing on a protruding plate which
    sticks out of Unicron's chest.

    GALVATRON - CLOSE

    He looks around himself in horror and lets out a loud scream
    as he realizes the unimaginable horror that surrounds him.

    ANGLE ON UNICRON - LONG SHOT

    The massive planet transforms, arms and legs fold out of the
    enormous body, hands unfold from the arms, jets from it's
    back propel it towards... ... Cybertron, which, now looks
    lonely and vulnerable in space.

    94.



    ANGLE ON GALVATRON

    He stands on a ledge on Unicron and desperately tries to open
    the matrix, but no cigar.

    GALVATRON
    No!!!

    ANGLE ON CYBERTRON

    Unicron enters shot and grasps at Cybertron with a hideous
    claw...

    ANGLE ON A TOWER ON CYBERTRON

    Shockwave talks into a communications device, as alarms sound
    and troopers run everywhere.

    SHOCKWAVE
    Decepticons...we're under
    attack...Scramble - Then his voice is cut
    off as...

    SHOCKWAVE'S POV - OUT HIS WINDOW

    Unicron's hand reaches towards the window, squeezes, and the
    walls crash in.

    SPACE - UNICRON AND CYBERTRON

    Unicron tears off the tower and crushes it as...

    A FLEET OF DECEPTICON SHIPS

    streak out of Cybertron and begin firing on the enormous
    planet. Here, we see the true scale of Unicron. The fighters
    are the size of bees as they attack.

    ANGLE ON UNICRON

    He looks down on the swarm of fighters and... ...Breathes
    fire down on them. The fighters POP and burn like popcorn in
    a blowtorch. In moments they disappear like sparks from a
    fire.

    ANGLE ON CYBERTRON

    Decepticon troopers man a massive gun emplacement as... ...
    Unicron's huge hand reaches down... ... scraping buildings
    and... ... tearing out gun emplacements.

    95.



    ANOTHER ANGLE- UNICRON'S FACE

    as he puts his face down so his mouth will receive all the
    rockets, laser blasts, etc.

    THE DECEPTICON DEFENDERS

    are silhouetted like ants in the foreground as Unicron OPENS
    HIS MOUTH and swallows the fire barrage

    GALVATRON
    GALVATRON Stop feeding him, you fools!

    ANGLE ON UNICRON AND CYBERTRON

    As yet more Decepticon fighters rip out of the planet, it
    looks like Unicron is going to have a field day tearing it
    apart.

    CUT TO:

    EXT. SPACE - SAME TIME

    The massive Junkion ship and the corkscrew cruiser piloted by
    Hot Rod and Kup race through the dark void.

    HOT ROD
    I don't believe it.

    INT. THE QUINTESSON SHIP - SAME TIME

    Hot Rod, Kup, Springer, Arcee and Daniel as they also look
    through canopy, astonished

    DANIEL
    Wow!

    THEIR P.O.V. - UNICRON Destroying CYBERTRON

    HOT ROD (V.O.)
    Doesn't it remind you of something, Kup?

    canopy

    ON JUNKION SPACE SHIP

    as it pulls up beside Hot Rod's Cruiser so they are both in a
    line.....The Dinobots behind both ships ...all diving toward
    Unicron's nose

    INT. JUNKION SHIP - WRECK-GAR AT CONTROLS

    As Wreck-Gar also has joystick shoved down and watches
    Unicron's face loom closer, closer, closer

    LONG SHOT- CRUISER, JUNKION SHIP AND DINOBOTS IN FORMATION

    as Unicron smiles and cups both hands together, preparing to
    catch the lot of them as soon as they get within reach

    UNICRON'S CHEST
    Galvatron, the matrix hanging around his
    neck. Transforms to Cannon and fires up
    at... ... A bright panel on Unicron's
    chest...

    BLAAAM!

    He hits the panel and lights and sparks fly out, causing the
    gigantic robot to flicker momentarily.

    ANGLE ON UNICRON

    The monster lets out a ROAR! Then, reaches down, picks up
    Galvatron and drops him into his mouth like a raisin.

    ANGLE ON GALVATRON

    He drops into the deep pit of Unicron's mouth, narrowly
    avoiding both a torrent of fire, and his sharp, crushing
    teeth.

    97.



    EXT. THE SPACE BATTLE - SAME TIME

    As they Junkion cruiser comes close, Unicron lets out a burst
    of fire... ... Flames lick the ship, but when the fire
    subsides, nothing has happened.

    WRECK-GAR (V.O.)
    Patented enamel resists fire, rain and
    corrosion. Five year warranty,
    satisfaction guaranteed.

    OTHER JUNKIONS
    Or your money back!

    The ship fires back, dumping rays into... ... Unicron's face,
    but not really doing any damage.

    UNICRON AND JUNKION CRUISER

    Unicron grabs the Junkion cruiser with both of it's hands
    and...

    CLOSER
    ... tears it in half.

    WRECK-GAR (V.O.)
    Unshakable, unbreakable, unbeatable. And

    THE JUNKIONS RUN AROUND

    welding things... ...screwing things together... ... and
    kicking control panels to make them work...

    EXT. SPACE

    Both halves of the Junkion ship act as independent space
    ships.

    PERCEPTOR (V.O.)
    Most unscientific, but... effective.

    98.



    EXT THE SPACE BATTLE

    As the Quintesson ship shoots toward Unicron's face.

    THE CRUISER
    Is suddenly struck by a ray from
    Unicron's eye, and half of it is knocked
    off.

    INT THE CRUISER

    Lights go off, and the Autobots are thrown around like toys.

    ANGLE THROUGH THE VIEWSCREEN

    They are heading right to Unicron's eye.

    ANGLE ON UNICRON AND THE CRUISER

    Unicron swipes at the cruiser, but misses. The Cruiser
    crashes right through Unicron's eye like a corkscrew!

    UNICRON (V.O.)
    Graaaaaaaaaaa!

    INT. UNICRON'S HEAD - SAME TIME

    The cruiser rips through the eye socket and smashes through
    several electrical membranes that are, in fact, Unicron's
    brain.

    ANGLE ON THE SHIP

    As the ship tumbles through, it dumps off the various
    Autobots like rubbish and disintegrates.

    ANGLE ON HOT ROD

    He tumbles out of the rubbish and down a deep pit (which we
    can assume is a robotic sinus or something)

    EXT. THE BRAIN AREA

    Kup, Springer, Daniel and Arcee are scattered about the floor
    in the giant, flickering chamber.

    Autobots.

    ANGLE ON THE AUTOBOTS

    KUP
    Debugoids!

    ARCEE
    Quick! This way.

    They run into a long, cave-like chamber which looks like the
    central nervous system or something.

    CUT TO:

    INT. ANOTHER CHAMBER - LATER

    Hot Rod drops through the darkness and lands in a pile of
    miscellaneous junk.

    ON HOT ROD

    He slowly gets up and looks around the chamber.

    WHAT HE SEES

    Pan as Hot Rod looks over various different bits of junk,
    until he sees the glowing shape of the Autobot Matrix
    apparently suspended in mid air.

    HOT ROD
    The Autobot Matrix!

    Then, suddenly two red, burning eyes light up above the
    matrix, and we see the hideous form of Galvatron.

    GALVATRON
    It will do you no good, Autobot. It
    cannot be opened.

    ON HOT ROD

    He stands up and walks towards Galvatron.

    Suddenly, his body is violently twisted,
    and his arms are almost broken off.

    GALVATRON
    Uhhhh...

    limb to limb.

    GALVATRON
    Of course, my master!

    ANGLE ON GALVATRON AND HOT ROD

    Galvatron takes a shot at Hot Rod. ... Hot Rod dives away, as
    electricity seems to flash everywhere.

    ON GALVATRON
    He peers into the gloom.

    GALVATRON'S POV - PANNING THE ROOM

    Hot Rod is nowhere to be seen amidst all of the junk.

    THE ROBOTIC ANTIBODIES

    Their shots hit some, knocking them to scrap, but there are
    so many of them, that they can't hold back the tide as it...

    ANGLE UNDER THE ANTIBODIES

    Daniel, unscathed by the things, which hover over his head,
    munching their way towards the Autobots, gets his foot free.

    DANIEL

    INT. UNICRON - A FLOWING TUNNEL

    Daniel rips through what seem to be endless caves on the
    torrent of liquid, until he is dumped down a high waterfall
    into... .... A glowing lake. ... He stays under for a
    moment, and then bobs up to see...

    UNICRON'S STOMACH
    This is the central processing area for
    Unicron's "food" and "energy." A long
    conveyer belt drops junk into a clear,
    bubbling vat, where it is separated into
    raw material and energy. The energy,
    which comes out in raw form, goes into a
    machine and is crunched into energon
    cubes, while the solid material, is
    separated into it's component metals and
    plastics, formed into ingots and sent
    elsewhere in an assembly line fashion.

    DANIEL
    watches this with awe until he sees...

    ANGLE ON THE ASSEMBLY LINE

    ... Several Decepticon troopers hanging from cables like
    shirts at a dry cleaners are dropped into the bubbling vat,

    He dashes to the shores of the glowing
    lake...

    Bumblebee! Dad!

    ON CLIFFJUMPER, JAZZ, AND SPIKE

    They look down, but can't move because they are held by
    massive pincers.

    GALVATRON
    No, I will crush you with bare hands. Hot
    Rod transforms back to car and tries to
    race away... ... Galvatron jumps after
    him and catches him... ... Hot Rod,
    nearly pinned by Galvatron transforms to
    humanoid mode.

    ... Galvatron wrestles him to his back.. ... The Adolescent
    Robot tries to fight back, but the other is stronger. ...
    Galvatron puts his hands around Hot Rod's neck and starts
    squeezing. ... We hear the crunching of metal.

    GALVATRON
    First Prime, then Ultra Magnus and now
    you. It is a pity Autobots die so easily
    or I might have a sense of satisfaction
    now. Hot Rod desperately gasps and pulls
    at Galvatron's hands...

    EXT. SPACE - THE BATTLE

    Unicron shoots down more Decepticons with his remaining eye,
    while he crushes the Junkion ship.

    INT. THE JUNKION SHIP

    The walls crush in. The Junkions and the Autobots are being
    smashed together.

    WRECK-GAR
    Ashes to ashes. Junk to junk.

    INT. THE DARK CAVERN

    Galvatron still strangles Hot Rod.

    HOT ROD
    Gasps.

    GALVATRON
    Die!

    ANOTHER ANGLE
    On Hot Rod, his hands, nearly dead,
    spring to life for a moment and grasp the
    Matrix which hangs from Galvatron's
    chest.

    107.



    ANGLE ON THE MATRIX

    Suddenly, it lights up.

    ANOTHER ANGLE
    A miraculous transformation takes place.
    ... Hot Rod begins to grow at an
    alarming rate. ... Age shows on his
    face. ... He is stronger and wiser.

    OPTIMUS PRIME
    Arise, Rodimus Prime.

    HOT ROD
    Optimus!

    ANGLE ON GALVATRON

    He fires at Hot Rod as...

    GALVATRON
    Nooooooo!

    ... Hot Rod gets up. ... The shot doesn't even dent him.

    HOT ROD
    This is the end of the road, Galvatron.
    With that, he picks up the Decepticon and
    throws him through...

    EXT. UNICRON - SAME TIME

    ... Unicron's side...

    CUT TO:

    INT. THE DARK CAVERN

    Hot Rod, bathed in the glow of the matrix. Sticks his hand
    in the way we saw Galvatron and Ultra Magnus try earlier.
    There is no shock. Then, like pulling the pin on a hand
    grenade, he unleashes the spiritual equivalent of a bomb!

    ASSORTED SHOTS - INVASION OF THE MATRIX

    The matrix rips through Unicron's body, blowing up wires
    causing floods and generally causing havoc.

    EXT. SPACE - THE BATTLE

    Unicron suddenly lets out a scream and lets go of the Junkion
    ship, sending it hurtling.

    108.



    INT. THE JUNKION SHIP

    It tumbles through space.

    AUTOBOTS AND JUNKIONS

    (THEY SCREAM WITH EXHILARATION)

    ANGLE ON UNICRON

    Suddenly, he starts tearing into his body.

    EXT. SPACE

    Unicron writhes in space, tearing himself apart, ripping off
    a leg, and sending out sparks like a roman candle.

    CUT TO:

    INT. THE CORRIDOR WHERE KUP ET.AL ARE TRAPPED

    They are overrun by the antibodies. One takes a whopper bite
    out of Springer's chest.

    SPRINGER
    I'm almost out of energy. Suddenly, he
    looks up and sees one of the creatures
    explode above

    HIM.

    Then another explodes, then another.

    SPRINGER'S POV - A WALL OF ANTIBODIES

    Suddenly, every antibody in the wall begins exploding, and
    through the carnage, we see Bumblebee, Spike, Daniel,
    Cliffjumper and Jazz.

    ANGLE ON THE BATTLE

    The last of the antibodies is blown away, and Kup, Arcee and
    Springer sit up amidst a pile of antibody bodies.

    SPRINGER
    That's what I call the nick of time.

    ANGLE ON ALL

    Suddenly, an entire wall vanishes as Unicron's hand tears at
    things.



    (CONTINUED)

    109.
    CONTINUED:


    JAZZ
    Let's burn rubber!

    ANGLE ON THE TUNNEL

    They transform. The humans jump in.

    THE CHASE - TRACKING

    They race up the tunnel, one step ahead of Unicron's hand
    which shoots after them, pulling apart what we know must be
    pieces of his brain... Then, they reach what seems like a
    dead end. In fact, it is the back side of Unicron's good
    eye. The hand comes in after them!

    ANGLE DOWN THE CORRIDOR

    An unbelievably fast and powerful robot races towards the
    Autobots. When it gets there, we realize that it is Rodimus
    Prime.

    KUP
    I knew you had potential, lad!

    ANGLE ON RODIMUS PRIME

    RODIMUS PRIME
    Autobots, transform and roll out. Rodimus
    Prime transforms into truck mode as the
    other Autobots also transform. Daniel
    and Spike jump into him. Then, in a
    continuous line, he shoots off, the other
    Autobots racing behind him.

    SMASH CUT:

    EXT. UNICRON

    Rodimus Prime shoots out the second eye... Followed by the
    others.

    ANGLE ON UNICRON

    An arm and a leg dangle uselessly as the Autobot essence
    spreads throughout the body, blowing circuits. Suddenly,
    Unicron lets out a loud agonized ROAR. SPARKS seem to shoot
    out of every part of his body. Then, he spins in space like
    some kind of a fireworks display, shooting off sparks. And
    then...

    110.



    BANG!

    We get the big visual explosion.

    DISSOLVE TO:

    EXT. SPACE - MUCH LATER

    Unicron's head orbits Cybertron. PAN to Cybertron where and
    PUSH IN on Rodimus Prime, Arcee, Kup, Springer, Ultra Magnus,
    Wreck-Gar, Daniel, Perceptor, Blaster and Spike watch
    construction being done on Cybertron below.

    RODIMUS PRIME
    Let this mark the end of the Cybertronian
    wars as we move forward to a new age of
    peace and happiness....

    ALL
    Until all are one!

    THE END

    Not sure what the point of this is either. I'd say most fans who were interested in reading this have seen it already. And there are dozens of sites that have the movie script available. A simple link would've sufficed.

    Cool, but not the same without hearing "Dare to be stupid" and "The Touch" in the backround...

    I only read the first few sentences. I know that Arblus dialogue wasn't in there.

    As somebody who has watched that movie enough times to be able to recite the script on command, that isn't the final script :p 

    I just skipped down to the exchange with Ironhide and Prime at the start, and that is pretty different.

    This is a discussion forum, not a place to dump copy/pasted, copyrighted documents in their entirety just for the sheer hell of it.

    I'm repeating myself, but a link would've sufficed. And then perhaps followed by some sort of comment or question on your part and then you have a topic and a reason for discussion.

    Perhaps remake this as a thread discussing the differences in the script you posted and the final version of the movie.
