Well, that sucks. But at least no one was hurt and sets can always be rebuilt if necessary.

It was the Decepticons! They were looking for the film reel that had that device from wheeljack's lab and they set about to destroy it. Check under the rubble of the one building, I am sure you'll find Starscream's body.

PROOF that transformers exist.


in truth, that really bites....
