Skids, a dimensional investigator, deems there to be too many Transformers from other dimensions living in the Legends Universe, and sets out to send them all back home and seal off the dimension (with special "keep out" tape). This concerns Rattrap, who doesn't want to lose his new friends, and Megatron and his female soldiers have no intention of leaving and confront the investigator, who calls forth the Skids Squadron, a team made up of alternate versions of himself. He then exposits to nobody in particular that he got his power to manipulate spacetime when he discovered quantum particles able to cross dimensions and bathed himself in them, and now he's become a powerful defender of peace throughout the multiverse instead of the overlooked nobody he was before.
While the Skids Squadron battles Megatron, Skids himself takes on Nightbird Shadow and Slipstream, shrugging off the latter's pleas that only prison awaits her back home. Despite his injuries, Megatron gets between Skids and his subordinates, warning him not to lay a hand on them, but the self-assured investigator exclaims that he's now stronger than even Megatron and uses his "Full Burst Mode" to blast the Decepticon leader with a lethal barrage of firepower. As he sees Megatron's underlings crowd around his body, however, Skids realizes to his shock that a Decepticon just sacrificed his life for his comrades, something Waspinator credits to the sense of justice that awakened within him during the G-2 era.
Rattrap and his friends then form a wall around Megatron's body and tell Skids that there are no factions in the Legends world: it's a place where everyone lives in peace and harmony, and Skids isn't protecting that peace, he's ruining it! Realizing the locals are right and that he's the bad guy here, Skids undoes the seal and leaves, but says he'll continue to monitor this dimension. A mysterious, tiny, but alive Megatron then climbs out of the Decepticon leader's remains, to the pleasant surprise of everyone present.
Later at a web cafe, Skids looks into his own appearances in the Transformers fiction available in the Legends Universe and is shocked to learn he only had two lines in the whole cartoon, yet he's also kinda happy he got any at all.

I don't think they all need explaining, just the ones who resemble a certain G1 character, like Nucleon, Twin Cast and Soundblaster. In the latter two's case, how much you wanna bet they're gonna pull out the Time/Dimension Travel trope? Twincast and Soundblaster travel back in time and merge with their past selves, easy!

One of these days, I'd like to take all of the online Legends comics and the pack-in Legends comics and, using the Wiki's summaries for all of them as a reference, put them in a chronological reading order.

Kind of is, yeah. Wish Takara'd stop it.

Just because she's never reverted out of the impractical 80's bikini armor back to her original officer uniform doesn't mean she's also doing anything erotic. She continues to act like a law enforcement officer, trying to uphold the law and keep the peace (even if irately at times).Kurona wrote:Sabrblade wrote:Dead horse, beaten, to death.Poyguimogul wrote:Ai Chan, in a bikini,not cool.

Besides, nothing too racy of hers (like her chest or her behind) is exposed or exaggerated in any of her appearances.
Do I wish she had gone back to wearing her original uniform back when the crisis involving Tankor's 80s Transformation Beam had been averted? Of course I do. But it's a complaint whose train left the station a long time ago.

when you say it like that now I see the Ai Chan plays with car robots fire convoy and sharkbyte at the pool and is called a way to deal with a crisis.

That Yuki Oshima designed figure of T-AI in the pool is creepy as f*ck, yes, but mainly because of how young she looks. She's quite clearly an adult (or at least in her late teens) in the Legends comic.
But seriously. It's a cartoon depiction of a hologram of a fictional alien artificial intelligence. WHOOOOOOOOOO CARES.

I like how the arms were extended out so that there appears to be antennae

Agreed, it would be cool to see Cab and Minerva too!
