    Transformers Nexus
    Project: PREDACON

    Entry 01 - "The Jungle's Rampage"
    The dark jungles of southeast Asia. A land full of wild, powerful beasts. And a hunter-scientist’s dream, especially for Lord Chumley IV. Ever since poaching was banned in 2013, many of those who once hunted the mighty animals of Asia and other jungles have taken to helping scientists make sure local populations remain healthy by using skills once used to kill the beasts to help secure them by way of tranquilizer dart. Afterwards, the scientists examine the health of the animal, allow the tranquilizer to wear off, let the animal go, and accept any praise for their work. This particular group has been tracking a tiger that had been seen in the area that hasn’t killed any animal, but seems more interesting in clawing rock. Chumley was hired to tranquilize the mighty beast.
    It wasn’t his concern as to why the big cat was attacking rock, but it was the scientists that hired him. Had poaching not been deemed illegal, the tiger would’ve been considered a mercy kill. He had every intention of besting the beast, for it was… a worthy challenge.
    After examining the area, they found the beast had been attacking a mountain base for about three hours that night. To examine the beast, they must get close. And it was too dangerous to get close without it being tranquilized. Chumley received the signal, and loading his hunting rifle with enough tranquilizer to down a regular-size rhino for 30 minutes, enough to keep the beast still for an hour. Lifting the rifle up, he aimed, smiling.
    “There’s a good chap,” Chumley smiled, and pulled the trigger.
    To his surprise, the dark bounced off the skin like a bullet off of armor. Turning toward him, the Tiger seemed to sense a threat. No… a challenge.
    “What kind of beast would dare turn towards a tranquil hunter,” Chumley asked, “and withstand a dart like that?”
    The tiger smirked – which struck Chumley as odd, since they were more likely to simply growl – and walked towards the convoy. The orange fur that once covered its body faded away like a hologram, and the beast lumbered forth, revealing a monster of metal and grit.
    “What… what’s this?” Chumley asked.
    “Rampage…” The tiger growled, “TRANSFORM!!!”

    Wait no longer!

    Welll, they may not show up in the comic until the Infinicons show up, but I've said too much.

    Entry 02 – “Headstrong like the rest of them.”

    Chumley hated the idea of being beaten, by a mere beast. It didn’t matter that it was a machine that could copy beast and man, it was merely a beast. The fact that it left him alive was a foolish mistake.
    “Lord Chumley IV?”
    “Yes, old boy?”
    “A new Tranquilizer is needed for an expedition in Africa.”
    “Ahhhh, I needed something to get my mind off of this… idea that a mere beast could beat me. What’s the animal?”
    “A Rhino attacking random villages with no provocation.”
    “… Very well then.”
    After flying to Africa, Chumley joined the crew of scientists, expert trackers, and one hot chick. As they looked around for the beast, they received a report of the rhino striking another village nearby. Rushing to the place, they saw the beast, looking as if it was seeking something.
    “Okay, Old Boy,” Chumley pulled out his tranquilizer rifle, “Tally Ho!”
    Then, the Rhino, turning, charged at the jeep. Chumley smiled.
    Then the Rhino’s skin faded, revealing another machine.
    “HEADSTRONG! TRANSFORM!!!”

    Entry 03 – “An Eagle’s Divebomb”

    Lord Chumley IV was slowly going insane. The last two beasts he had encountered were machines, not animals. Both had either left him alive on purpose or on accident.
    “Perhaps I need a new hobby…”
    “Lord Chumley IV?”
    “Yes. That is me.”
    “Another team of scientists have required your help in-“
    “No.”
    “Pardon?”
    “I’m taking up a new hobby, lad.”
    “What kind of hobby?”
    “Bird-Watching.”
    “… Okay, a bunch of BIRD-WATCHING scientists need someone to tranquilize an eagle that seems to be defying logic.”
    “Fine… I’ll help find the damn bird.”
    Later, in North America, they found the eagle flying around the nearby forest. Lord Chumley observed the bird, arming his rifle…
    When the bird’s feathers faded, revealing YET Another machine.
    “Of course,” Lord Chumley growled.
    “DIVEBOMB!!!” The bird squawked, “TRANSFORM!!!!”

    Entry 04 – “Bull’s Tantrum”

    Lord Chumley IV had had it with the idea of Tranquilzing the animals. He didn’t want any part of it.
    “That’s it!” Lord Chumley screamed, “I have had it with these beasts! First a Tiger, then a Rhino, and now an eagle! If I see another animal robot, I’m gonna have its head!”
    “Lord Chumley IV?”
    “WHAT?!”
    “… You’ve been called to tranquilize an… angry bull?”
    “Is it a robot?”
    “Maybe?”
    “… Okay, to Spain!!!”
    “Mexico.”
    “Whatever, old boy.”
    At Mexico, Lord Chumley faced the bull.
    “Better not be a robot…”
    Then his skin faded, revealing… you know.
    “OH FLACKDONKEYS!”
    “Trantrum, Transform!!!”

    Entry 05: “Razor Sharp Claws.”

    Chumley had been defeated by a mechanical rhino, a robot eagle, a titanium tiger, and a bionic bull. He knew in order to become better at hunting these beasts, he knew he had to defeat the king of beasts.

    The lion.

    Moving swiftly, he went on a third trip to Africa that month, Chumley took off into the savannah. After running for hours and seeking out targets, he found the perfect one.

    A young lion napping.

    He fired a shot into the sky to alert the beast, then loaded another shot. Sitting up, the Lion growled. Chumley smirked, because this time, he was ready to kill the beast.

    “Nighty Night, Good boy,” Chumley IV smirked.

    That’s when the lion’s skin faded, revealing the beast within.

    “BOLLOCKS!!!”

    “Razorclaw,” the lion roared, “TRANSFORM!!!!”

    If it does, it better involve Chumley kicking the Predacons' asses before they go Voltron on him.
    Failing that, there had better be a comic. :p 

    Nice drawings, Stonecrusher. I like Female Divebomb (Although I like Male-to-Female genderflipped TFs in general :D  ).

    Your designs are simplistic but very cute - they remind me of Megaman bosses :)

    Entry 06: Chumley’s Vengence

    Those beasts…

    I’ve prepared for my next encounter. Bull, Eagle, Tiger, Lion, Rhino. All five shall fall before me. I am the hunter.

    And when they see my technology, they’ll know…

    THEY are the prey.

    The Main Event!

    Entry 07: Master of the Hunt

    As Chumley stared the beast into the eye, he smirked.

    “Well, Mr. Razorclaw,” Lord Chumley smirked, “I just defeated your comrades with ease and human technology. Is there anything you can do against the Master of the Hunt – Man?”

    “Please, what would YOU know about hunting?” Razorclaw growled, “You, who until recently hunted entire species to extinction for no practical purpose, who continues to poison your environment, who work yourself to death just so you can find a purpose to life, which has no REAL purpose other then to perpetuate your species?”

    “Well, enough to take down four robotic beasts,” Chumley replied.

    “Well, watch the true master of the hunt,” Razorclaw chuckled, “PREDACONS! MERGE to become PREDAKING!”

    “Oh… dear…”

    Like it, only I don't see Razorclaw giving the generic villain "Humanity Sucks" speech. I think he should have just skipped to the combination sequence. :D

    Eh. To be fair, we DID do plenty of bad stuff for our planet, so I guess the tropes, "Humans Are (Whatever Bad things Exist)" are justified somewhat.

    That's true, but Razorclaw doesn't seem the type to say it. He'd probably more likely say "Oh, please. Look at yourself! You're a squishy little pink primate who depends on technology for everything. What would YOU know about hunting?"
    Then again, this IS the opinion of some guy on the internet. :D
