When we last left Goldbug, he had been beaten down by a fellow Autobot while being plague-ridden. Learning there was a cure, the Autobots all became friends. But there’s still the matter of a crater filled with Scraplets, as well as four Transformers, Blaster and the Decepticon Triple Changers–plus a time limit before all of Earth is destroyed to stop the plague from spreading. (Ratbat‘s a jerk that way.) So I’m sure Spacebooger has been on pins and needles wondering how it all ends. Well, I hope you at least picked a better seat cushion, because it’s time for the second half of our tale.
Round 6 of 12
The Battlefield: The Transformers #30 again
The Promoters: same as last week
Returning to the crater with a pair of water tanker trucks, Goldbug, Charlie and the Throttlebots are ready to deliver the cure.
Because that’s how comic Blaster is SUPPOSED to roll, Simon Furman! But that’s an article for another time. Besides, Goldbug isn’t going to let his fellow Autobot die just to pay back a few Decepti…
Ouch. Goldbug’s not going to have a chance to regret his decision, though.
And since the Scraplets are just a huge mass of…thingies, they can keep themselves from being hit with the water.
Things aren’t looking good for the Throttlebots. Luckily, Goldbug is there. The same guy who concocted a plan to rescue Optimus Prime on the fly now makes another smart move and releases the water.
Because nobody can kill like a Decepticon.
Except for maybe Blaster. And because I’m a sucker for a happy ending…
Yay, everybody’s friends again. Sadly, we wouldn’t get a lot of the new adventures of Blaster, Goldbug, and his Throttlebot pals. We’ll learn why next edition, as we see Bumblebee/Goldbug’s next physical transformation. It’s actually a step down.
