The last thing Hot Rod had expected as he entered Optimus Prime's office was to have Grimlock be sent flying back into him as Optimus Prime stood smuggly over the fallen Dinobot. (and the nearly crushed former leader under him) He'd heard about Grimlock having problems with Prime in his early days on-line. But the Dinobot had mellowed as his personality came together.
