I got into the Transformers saga when Beast Wars came about. When they'd talk about the Autobots and Decepticons, I thought they were just talking about some legendary (fictional, cause we all know they were legendary) race of Transformers that were just made up. But that all changed at the time when Beast Machines rolled out. My mom was rearranging some old record albums when she stumbled across a Transformers "read-along" story record (I unfortunately don't have the book). I can't find it now, but I have a copied cassette tape of it. It's called "When Continents Collide." I realize now that the voices were really bad (especially Soundwave's lack of voice synthesication whatsoever), but I also realize that this may be a rare find. If I recall, the story is kinda like this: The Decepticons are in search of oil to make Energon cubes. They have an oil transporter hovercraft (that supposedly was manmade, rather than Decepticon technology) that sucks a bunch of oil resovoirs dry. A few familiar names are mentioned (even without having a "speaking" line), such as Skyfire, Hound, Ratchet, Soundwave, Prowl, and a few others. Because of oil reserves being dried up, they collapse on themselves and shift the continents to collide with each other, and the world is basically ready to go to war with itself, countries blaming each other for the cause of it. Eventually, the Autobots use Rayzon (did I spell it right?) gas to pump the oil out of the transporter and back into the resovoirs, and it causes the geometry of the Earth to go back into place (cray-zee!). The Decepticons escape (so that means there's possibly more than one of these records?) and the Autobots save the day once again. I liked the storyline, but if the voices were like those in the cartoon, my rating for it would sky-rocket. No one I know has said anything about these, but I think it belonged to a relative of mine who collected the original toys back in the day, which could be why I'm a TF finatic. XD Feel free to state your opinion.
