EXT. NEW YORK CITY – DAY. OPTIMUS PRIME (V.O) While most of the Decepticons try and stay hidden and out of sight, a few still work with corrupt humans and terrorize law abiding citizen. A group of three CAN-AM SPYDERS pull up in front of a mechanic shop. The drivers get off the motor bikes and make their way into the store. INT. INSIDE MECHANIC SHOP. The head biker lifts up his visor on his helmet, reaches over the counter and grabs the store owner by his shirt collar. Customers inside scramble out the front door as the other two goons stand as lookouts watching the entrance. HEAD GOON You told the Boss that you’d have his parts by the end of the week! The head goon looks past the shop owner into the back and sees two empty work bays. All the while he’s still holding the shop owner by his collar. HEAD GOON I don’t see no stinking parts! You being a wise guy? SHOP OWNER No! No! In…in the back lot! Under the tarps! The head goon lets the store owner go and gives the other two men a quick head gesture to the back of the shop. The two men leap the counter and head through the shop, to the back door and outside into the back lot. EXT. BACK LOT BEHIND THE MECHANIC SHOP. The two goons make their way to the back lot and there sits two unseen vehicles with tarps over them. The two goons are removing the tarps just as the head goon makes his way through the open back door into the lot. As they pull back the tarps, the head goon stops dead stride, turns and proceeds to run back into the shop. The tarps are quickly thrown off as a small group of armed soldiers jump from the two cars. Two of the soldiers quickly wrestle one goon to the ground as the head soldier butts the second goon in his helmet with the end of her rifle, knocking him off his feet and unconscious. She looks down at him, smiles and turns to see her two decoy cars speeding off out of the lot driverless. The head soldier’s name plate reads SGT. EPPS. NEST SOLDIER Should we go after the last one Sergeant? TANYA EPPS No… let the dynamic duo there take care of the last one. As the head goon makes his way back to the front of the shop, his CAN-AM SPYDER bike starts itself up, the tires burn out and it speeds away as the head goon hologram fades away behind it. The bike hits the corner and darts across the street barley missing two-way traffic and into a narrow alleyway. The hologram rider shimmers back into view sitting on the bike once more. Sideswipe is the first to catch up and give chase. The driver looks back at the pursuing AUTOBOT, looks forward and speeds forward toward and barley misses a large garbage dumpster. Sideswipe TRANSFORMS, takes two quick steps on his wheeled feet and leaps over the dumpster. As the CAN-AM SPYDER hits the end of the alleyway; another AUTOBOT quickly pulls up to block the motor bikes path. Its hologram driver fades away as it starts to TRANSFORM and it jumps up and over the AUTOBOT DINO. The Small Decepticon does not make it over as in its motion of Transformation, Dino quickly TRANSFORMS, leaps up and turns in place. Dino’s arm blade cuts the smaller Decepticon in two. Dino comes down and looks into the alleyway at a now standing Sideswipe. DINO Looks like you are getting slow, no? Just as Dino finishes taunting Sideswipe, a LOUD HORN is heard just before Dino is hit by a LARGE GARBAGE TRUCK. The waste management truck pushes him down the street as he buries his arm blades in its front grill. Steam and fluids are spraying out of the front of the truck and sparks fly up from under Dino’s feet as he’s pushed. Dino looks up and into the cab of the Garbage truck and there is no driver. The Garbage truck TRANSFORMS, while plowing through a few cars and ripping down the intersection’s signal lights. The VARY LARGE Decepticon reaches up and rips Dino free from his shoulder. It grabs him and tries to force him down into a wide open trash compactor that sits on the Decepticon’s belly. Dino quickly slices at the Decepticon’s left arm, severing it. Both the arm and Dino slam to the ground. The Decepticon screams out in pain but quickly regains its train of thought and reaches down with his still good arm. Its arm TRANSFORMES into what looks like an OLD TIME TOMMY GUN. It points it at Dino as it speaks with what seems to be a thick New York accent. GARBAGE TRUCK DECEPTICON You mess with Stink Boss, you die! Sideswipe races up from behind on his wheeled feet. He lets a few rounds go with his hand weapons. The rounds rip into the Decepticon’s back making the Decepticon scream out in pain once more. It starts to turn to take on the new AUTOBOT enemy but Sideswipe is too quick for him. Sideswipe comes out of his gliding motion, and almost runs on his wheeled feet. As he gets closer he uses the rubber on his wheeled feet and pushes off the street to get himself up and over the much larger Decepticon. In mid jump, Sideswipe flips and looks down at the Decepticon and it looks up at him. Sideswipes arm blade comes down aimed for the face of the Decepticon. In one motion, Stink Boss places his foot down on Dino’s chest and throws the fist of his remaining arm up and into the somersaulting Sideswipe. Sideswipe flies a good fifty yards away and slams down on top of a parked car. Stink Boss lifts his foot and kicks Dino sending him skidding down the street into the side of the same park car where Sideswipe now lays. The large Decepticon picks up his dismembered arm, drops it into his open compacter belly, transforms and smashes his way through congested traffic as he gets away. Sideswipe looks down at Dino from on top of the crushed car and extends his hand with a smile. SIDESWIPE You’re still slower than I am.
