BETWEEN A ROCK AND A HARD PLACE! That's where the Transformers are caught right now; between the planet-eating maw of Unicron and the awesome powers of the Creation Matrix. But this is not the Matrix whose purity is held sacred by the Transformers. No, this is a life essence tainted by the evil of Thunderwing. For Optimus Prime, it is a heavy burden to know that should the Matrix overwhelm Unicron, it too will have to be destroyed or Cybertron and it's inhabitants will suffer the same fate as it would have at the hands of the chaos-bringer. Yet the combined Autobot/Decepticon armies can do nothing, it seems, to stop the now-inevitable destruction of their homeworld, or their total extinction!
