Each leader has returned from Cybertron to retake control of their respective forces, and each is out to gain an initiative in the Autobot/Decepticon war. Prime, although pleased with his new Autobot arrivals - the Cybertron seven - decides to unleash his latest Special Team of combining robots - the Protectobots. Not to be outdone, Megatron also has a new Special Team to unveil - the Combaticons. But it's six of one, half a dozen of the other as the Protectobots combine to form Defensor, and the Combaticons form Bruticus, leaving Prime and Megatron seemingly with honours even. Yet there is a solution - a terrifying solution - which must result in the death of one leader...and incredibly enough, it involves a computer video game, and a human!
