They're baaack. The DINOBOTS return and are ready to make anything and everything foolish enough to get in their way extinct! Branded as criminals of war, OPTIMUS PRIME and the AUTOBOTS face public execution via the smelting pools of CYBERTRON. And while it may appear that our heroes are headed for that big scrap heap in the skyâ€”the end is far from near when GRIMLOCK and his DINOBOTS come crashing to the rescue. But even if the AUTOBOTS are able to escape SHOCKWAVE'S forces are they prepared for what else lurks in the wastelands of CYBERTRON? And what happens when STARSCREAM and SHOCKWAVE form an unholy alliance that promises to return the DECEPTICONS to power? The latest chapter in 2003's most action-packed saga promises even more thrills, chills and utter carnage than the first two issues combined!
