The Fall of Cybertron wiki last edited by wmwadeii on 03/27/13 12:19PM View full history

Overview

The story arch involves the Lightning Strike Coalition, who were a subgroup of Autobots under the leadership of Grimlock. They reluctantly followed Optimus Prime, but did not care for his cautious brand of warfare, and preferred to charge in guns first. Swoop was sent to investigate Shockwave's energon sources. During his mission he disappeared. When the other four coalition members (Sludge, Slug, Snarl, & Grimlock) learned that Swoop had been captured by Shockwave, they disobeyed orders and went after him. Upon arriving at the Sea of Rust, they were overpowered by a swarm of Insecticons. Sludge was thought to have been killed and the rest were taken to Shockwave's labs.

It turned out that Sludge was in stasis lock, but the other members were to be re-engineered by Shockwave to become more powerful and transform into alt-modes that resembled creatures he discovered on a distant planet (Earth). Eventually they escaped captivity, and renamed themselves as the "Dinobots". They also found schematics for an additional new body for Sludge.
