Mega-Octane: All right, listen up. I’ve got the energy. Let’s move out! Ahaha, that was like taking candy from a baby.
T-AI: Optimus! The Decepticons have stolen some energy from the East Power Station and they’re getting away!
Optimus: Do we have any teams in the area?
T-AI: The Build Team is at the location. They’re working on a section of the global space bridge. Should I contact them?
Optimus: No, they have enough to deal with from our last encounter with the Decepticons. Let’s send in Team Bullet Train.
T-AI: No problem. Team Bullet Train, code red! Contact base immediately.
Wedge: Going somewhere?
Rollbar: Heads up! We’ve got company!
Wedge: And just what do you think you’re up to? Whatever it is, I’m sure it can’t be good. Too bad for you, but we just happen to be nearby.
Railspike: It’s okay, Wedge. We can take it from here.
Wedge: We don’t need any help. We’ve got everything under control.
Railspike: Railspike, transform!
Rapid Run: Rapid Run, transform!
Midnight: Midnight Express, transform!
Railspike: I’ll ask you nicely. Give us the energy you stole right now!
Mega-Octane: You’re a little mixed up. If I was gonna give it back, I wouldn’t have stolen it! Transform!
Rapid Run: Maybe by combining our strength we can get them to see the light.
Railspike: Let’s do it!
Trains: Bullet Fusion Mode!
Rail Racer: Triple Threat, combine! Rail Racer!
Mega-Octane: Two can play that game, choo choo chump! Decepticons, combine!
Armorhide and Rollbar: Yessir!
Ro-Tor and Movor: Yessir!
Ruination: Ruination awakens!
Wedge: Guys, give me a hand.
Heavy Load: We’re with you!
Ruination: There are only three of you and five of us! Fire cannons!
Rail Racer: Move out!
Ruination: Hahaha! Huh?
Rail Racer: Eat this!
Heavy Load: All right! Mission accomplished!
Wedge: Good work, team.
Ruination: You’ll have to do better than that, bot-head!
Wedge: Aaaahh! Right shoulder thrust!
Rail Racer: Nice move, Wedge. Thanks.
Wedge: You’re welcome. We should really fall back now.
Rail Racer: What are you talking about?
Wedge: Let’s all get outta here. Come on, I’ll explain later.
Heavy Load: Hurry up, team!
Ruination: Ah, Autobot cowards! I guess they must be afraid of me.
Mega-Octane: Since they ran away, we’ll take this energy to Megatron. Huh?
Armorhide: That container looks mighty light.
Mega-Octane: It is light. There’s nothing in here! Where’d the energy go?
Movor: Hey, wait a minute! That Build Team must’ve taken it while we were fighting the trains!
Mega-Octane: Grrrr! I’m gonna make them pay for this!
Wedge: So while they were busy fighting with Rail Racer, we put the energy back.
Optimus: Excellent work, Wedge.
Koji: And now with all the different links to the space bridge, the Decepticons can’t get away with anything anymore.
Wedge: Yeah! Speaking of which, I have to get back to tunnel #3 right away and finish up some repairs.
Megatron: I’m very displeased. I was counting on that energy.
Scourge: It was a simple assignment, I don’t know how they could have messed it up.
Mega-Octane: That rotten Build Team pulled a fast one on us.
Movor: They all ducked into the tunnel before we could grab the energy back from them.
Ro-Tor: It’s that space bridge!
Mega-Octane: Yeah, we should have destroyed it when we broke into the tunnel that time. But if we did destroy it, they would only build a new one. We have to get rid of that Build Team, permanently.
Worker: All right, you guys, let’s move it out!
Mega-Octane: We’ll keep hitting these construction sites until those spineless builders show up!
Armorhide: Yessir! Armor Blaster!
Mega-Octane: This is what happens when you mess with us.
Ro-Tor: Let’s see if we can shake ’em up. Come out of hiding, Wedge, or we’ll destroy all construction sites! …Unless you’re too scared!
T-AI: Prowl, emergency! Code red! The Decepticons are attacking work crews at quadrant delta, sector three!
Prowl: Read you loud and clear, base. I’m on my way.
T-AI: X-Brawn, emergency! Code red! The Decepticons are assaulting crews and their equipment at quadrant tango, sector five!
X-Brawn: Right, I’ll go have a look.
T-AI: I wonder what’s going on out there. The Decepticons just seem to be attacking construction sites.
Optimus: I hope this isn’t some sort of revenge on the Build Team.
T-AI: You might be right about that. Huh?! They struck again! This time they’re attacking the construction site near quadrant bravo, sector nine! We’ve got to stop them!
Optimus: Put Sideburn on it.
Sideburn: Nothing like the beach to put gas in your tank, eh red? But you better be sure you’re wearing lots of wax in this hot sun, you don’t wanna fade.
Kelly: It’s… that crazy car!
T-AI: Sideburn, come in!
Sideburn: Great, this is all I need.
T-AI: Now what do you mean by that crack?! We have an emergency, how many times do I have to call?
Sideburn: All right, I’m coming.
T-AI: Go to the construction site near quadrant bravo, sector nine now!
Sideburn: Don’t have to tell me twice.
Kelly: That guy is definitely weird.
Sideburn: Don’t worry, red. I’ll be back as soon as I deal with the bad guys. Just keep your motor running.
Sideburn: I’m coming!
X-Brawn: X-Brawn, transform! What in the world are you varmints up to now?
Mega-Octane: Where is the Build Team?
X-Brawn: What’s it to ya?
Armorhide: If the Build Team doesn’t show up here right now, we’re gonna blast every construction site and crush every tractor, like this and this and this!
X-Brawn: Now while I’m around. Bronco Blaster!
Armorhide: Take a hike, country boy. Armor Blaster!
Mega-Octane: Hahaha, go play in your space bridge. I’ve got no use for you anyway.
X-Brawn: Wait, where ya going? Come back and fight!
Sideburn: The same thing happened to me, Optimus. Those Decepticons wanted nothing to do with me.
T-AI: But why are they so interested in the Build Team?
Optimus: Maybe it has something to do with the space bridge.
T-AI: Optimus, the Decepticons are attacking another construction site!
Optimus: Mobilize Team Bullet Train.
T-AI: Roger. Computer locating Team Bullet Train. Team Bullet Train, code red! Emergency!
Sideburn: Even if the trains show up there, the Decepticons will walk away and destroy another construction site.
X-Brawn: Optimus, don’t you think you should let Wedge’s team know about this?
Optimus: No, they have work to do and I don’t want this getting in their way.
X-Brawn: Dag varnit.
Mega-Octane: Little Wedge, come out, come out, where ever you are!
T-AI: Investigate Decepticon activity! X-Brawn! Prowl! Sideburn! Proceed to quadrant alpha, sector six.
Prowl: Why won’t Optimus tell the Build Team what’s going on?
X-Brawn: Your guess is as good as mine, but I think they have a right to know.
Sideburn: Maybe he’s trying to protect them but the Decepticons won’t stop this until they show up.
T-AI: Oh no, the Decepticons are destroying another construction site!
Movor: Movor, transform!
Ro-Tor: Ro-Tor, transform!
Heavy Load: I picked up a radio frequency meant for the Autobot Brothers. It was very staticy, but I heard the Decepticons are causing a lot of trouble.
Wedge: Why didn’t the base contact us? We’re available.
Grimlock Whoa, what was that?
Hightower: It sounds like they’re fighting right above us.
Wedge: Yeah, well I’m going up there to check it out. Transform!
Hightower: Wedge, wait!
Railspike: We’ve got to find Mega-Octane and Armorhide.
Wedge: What happened here?
Railspike: What are you doing here, Wedge?
Wedge: What’s going on? Talk to me. What is it?
Railspike: See, ummm…
Rapid Run: Well, uhhh…
T-AI: Yes, all the equipment, just like the other ones.
Wedge: Optimus Prime! Why didn’t you tell me about the construction sites? All the machines are being destroyed, aren’t they?
T-AI: We’re doing everything we can.
Wedge: That’s not enough. The Decepticons are targetting the Build Team. That’s it, isn’t it? And if we don’t show up, all of the construction equipment will be turned into scrap metal, isn’t that right?
Optimus: We’ll handle the Decepticons. I want your team to concentrate on the space bridge. Right now it’s more important.
Wedge: I don’t think so!
T-AI: Optimus is right, Wedge. You can’t just go there on your own and —
Scourge: Where do you think you’re going?
Autobot Bros: Transform!
Wedge: That’s it! I can’t take this any longer!
Wedge: I will not ignore my friends. Wedge, transform! Hyah! Optimus Prime, I can’t just sit here while innocent machines are being threatened and do absolutely nothing about it! I wanna go in!
Optimus: I understand how you feel, but you’re just going to have to trust me.
Wedge: I can’t take it anymore. You’ve got to allow me to go there and fight.
T-AI: The Decepticons are now destroying the construction site near quadrant omega, sector ten!
Optimus: I’ll take care of it myself.
Wedge: Let me go out there! I don’t get it. He’s dead wrong this time. This is driving me nuts!
Heavy Load: Relax, my friend. You’re liable to blow a gasket.
Wedge: I can’t relax. I want to face the Decepticons but they’re not allowing me to do what I should do! I’d like to pound those guys for what they’ve done!
Hightower: I have an idea on how we could do it. Interested?
Hightower: I don’t know why I didn’t think of this before. This hard drive will disorientate the tracking system and that’ll cause location malfunction. Piece of cake.
Heavy Load: But I don’t understand what that will do. That’ll just send everybody to the wrong location.
Hightower: Exactly. It won’t allow the other teams to come to the battle.
Grimlock: So that’s your plan? To alter the space bridge so we can face the Decepticons all alone, without any help?
Hightower: That’s it.
Wedge: Yeah! The others can’t stand in our way. If it’s the Build Team they want, it’s the Build Team they’ll get.
Hightower: I can’t stand around and watch them threaten people and destroy property to get back at us. I say we stop it, all right?
Grimlock: Well, when you put it that way, I have to agree with you. We shouldn’t need permission to do what’s right.
Heavy Load: Yeah, let’s do it!
Build Team: Let’s do it!
Wedge: Let’s go get ’em!
Mega-Octane: It seems we missed a few. Twin Laser Cannons! Hmmm?!
Wedge: You wanted me, you got me! Wedge, transform!
Armorhide: It’s him!
Heavy Load: Heavy Load, transform! Mmmm… Aaahh!
Grimlock: Grimlock, transform! Oooohh yeah!
Hightower: Hightower, transform! Mmmm!
Mega-Octane: Glad you’ve finally made it, squirt. I didn’t think you had the courage. Now you’ll pay for messing with the Decepticons!
Wedge: Oh yeah? Well don’t tread on me!
Mega-Octane: Very funny!
Wedge: Shoulder thrust!
Heavy Load: Wedge! Had enough? Say uncle!
Wedge: Double laser!
Mega-Octane: Take this.
Heavy Load: Look out!
Armorhide: Laser blaster!
Wedge: Let go of me, you overgrown go-kart! When I get a hold of you, I’m turning you into a skateboard!
Mega-Octane: Hahaha, Wedgie Boy!
Movor: Laser blaster!
Wedge: Leave them alone!
Ro-Tor: Ro-Tor attack!
Mega-Octane: Hahaha, too bad no one on your team knows how to fight. It looks like your pathetic teammates are ready for the scrap heap along with the rest of that junk.
Wedge: You guys all right?
Heavy Load: Perhaps we should re-think this entire plan.
Grimlock: They’re coming. Save yourself, Wedge!
Heavy Load: Maybe tampering with the tunnels wasn’t such a good idea.
Wedge: Come on, team. We can’t give up. Are we just going to run away like cowards and let these diesel brain soldiers get away with destroying everything?!
Heavy Load: I think not!
Build Team: Let’s do it!
Heavy Load: Hey team, let’s combine!
Build Team: Quad-Power Combiner Mode!
Heavy Load: Landfill!
Mega-Octane: Let’s get rid of these pests once and for all. Combine!
Armorhide and Rollbar: Combine!
Ro-Tor and Movor: Combine!
Ruination: Ruination awakens!
T-AI: Optimus Prime! Landfill is fighting Ruination!
Optimus: I told them to stay out of this!
T-AI: I was worried about them when they didn’t report in and this turned up on the screen.
Optimus: I should’ve realized Wedge was too hot headed. What’s their location?
T-AI: Just a minute. It’s in quardrant zebra, sector four.
Optimus: Get moving, Autobots.
Autobot Bros: Roger!
Optimus: I hope they’re not too late.
Ruination: You’re out of your league. I’m going to smash you into spare parts!
Landfill: You don’t scare me, stick-shift. Someone should put you in your place and I’m just the guy to do it!
Ruination: Twin Lasers! Hahaha!
X-Brawn: Something funny’s going on here.
Prowl: You’re right. Seems to me we should have been there by now.
X-Brawn: Our quadrant’s gotta be around here some place.
Sideburn: Come on, guys, step on it. I’ll take the lead if you don’t mind. Follow me!
X-Brawn: What in tarnation? This isn’t the right place!
Sideburn: How’d we ever get so lost? We’re not even close.
Prowl: You don’t think someone tampered with the… Optimus Prime, emergency! Come in!
Ruination: This even more fun than I thought it would be. Had enough?
Landfill: I will never surrender to you!
Ruination: Then say goodbye. Come out and fight, you coward.
Landfill: What is this place?
Ruination: I’ve got you now, shovelhead.
Optimus: Optimus Prime, transform! Battle mode! Where is everyone?
Ruination: I guess you weren’t as tough as you thought you were, Autobot weakling.
Landfill: Well you’re as stupid as you look.
Ruination: Say goodbye. What the?!
Heavy Load: This entire cavern is filled with oil!
Wedge: You’re right! I’m going to take care of this guy once and for all.
Ruination: You must have a loose circuit. We’re surrounded by oil. This place will explode and we’ll all be destroyed. Let’s call a truce until we’re out of here.
Landfill: Forget it!
Ruination: What are you doing?! Don’t you care about your own safety? You know what’ll happen if you shoot in here!
Landfill: Yeah, I know what’ll happen. I’ll blow you to scrap. Fire laser!
Optimus: What’s going on? Landfill! Build Team! Power Stream, fire! Are you and your crew all right, Wedge?
Wedge: We’re a lot cooler now, huh, Optimus?
Heavy Load: You sure showed ’em, Wedge!
Optimus: Well, I’m certain the Decepticons won’t take you so lightly next time.
Grimlock: Good thing we got out of that one!
Sideburn: There’s nothing like a hot tub. A nice hot tub of oil, that is.
Prowl: I can finally get the kinks out.
Wedge: I’m sorry about everything, Optimus.
Optimus: Don’t worry about it. Lucky for us, everything turned out fine. Just be happy you have a great team on your side.
Wedge: Right, I won’t forget that.
Sideburn: You really should come in here, Wedge. Aw, come on, the oil’s fine! It’s really rejuvenating. You’ll feel like you’ve just had a tune-up.
X-Brawn: You don’t know what you’re missing.
Wedge: All right! Get ready for a cannonball depth charge!
