Transformers – Tales of the Fallen 01 – Bumblebee：
An all-new miniseries set in the Movie universe launches here! Nearly two years after saving the planet, Sam Witwicky has grown up. It’s too bad his friend BUMBLEBEE hasn’t. With their friendship strained, Sam sets out for an evening devoid of alien interference. Little does he know that he’s being watched. Without his robotic protector, can he beat the DECEPTICONS?
Bumblebee has been sent back to Sam and the two of them are happy to see each other again. While they talk, his parents interrupt with saying that Mojo is in the front yard. While Sam goes to get Mojo, he sees Bumblebee lowering a tree to get the cat down. Sam yells to stop and then asks him what he’s doing here. Bumblebee tells him he’s watching over him, even though he isn’t in any trouble at the moment. Sam tells him showing himself in robot mode because he doesn’t want more reporters snooping around his house. He then tells him he’s going to the movies with Mikaela and asks him if he can drive.
That night, Bumblebee drives Sam and his friend, Miles, to the movies, while Sam and Miles chat with each other. They then see a car which Sam recognizes as Trent’s, Mikaela’s ex-boyfriend, and hopes they don’t see him. Hours later, Sam thanks Bumblebee for behaving in front of Miles, but then Bumblebee tells him he did something, to which Sam asks what he did as it shows Trent’s car has been turned upside down, and Trent freaking out about it.
Days pass, and Bumblebee and Sam make the most of it. Without a team, Bumblebee has been acting mainly on impulse. Later, while Sam is being driven by Bumblebee, he asks him what he’s going to do when he goes to college. Bumblebee says he’ll follow him wherever he goes, and while Sam likes that idea, he tells him he has to realize that he may not be able to go with him to college, and says that maybe he can stay at his parent’s house while he’s at college. Unfortunately for them, Sam’s parents refuse to let him stay and say that once summer’s over, he’s leaving. Sam then leaves, telling them he’s going to Mikaela’s because she’s mad at Miles for some reason. He tells Bumblebee he’s going to walk because he wants to think about some things. 20 minutes later, as he’s crossing the street, a car comes out of no where and heads right towards Sam, who could do nothing but protest.
Hours later, Bumblebee is just sitting in the garage and is about to shut down for the night, when Sam’s dad rushes in telling him that Mikaela called and said he never made it there and they don’t know where he is. Bumblebee then rushes out of the garage and takes the normal path he does to get to Mikaela’s house and scans local police and news broadcasts for clues. He finally gets one and fears the worst, and as he sees an electronic sign, with Cybertronian writing on it, telling him “The Allspark for the Boy”, he realizes the worst has come true.
At an auto junkyard, it is seen that Sam has been kidnapped by Barricade who demands the Allspark fragment. As he threatens Sam, Bumblebee comes in and attacks Barricade, but Barricade easily overpowers Bumblebee and then turns his attention to Sam. Sam runs as Barricade attacks him, but then Bumblebee recovers and attacks Barricade once more. Unfortunately, Bumblebee is overpowered once again, but just as it appears Barricade is going to finish him off, Sam comes with a crane and swings the hook at Barricade, but he just avoids it, tears off the hook, scoffs at Sam’s attack, and lifts up the crane. But then Bumblebee manages a surprise attack on him and knocks him into a large gasoline puddle. Sam thanks him, but Bumblebee tells him to run, and as he does, Bumblebee shoots Barricade, igniting all the gasoline and causing a giant explosion. Bumblebee manages to escape with Sam, but remarks that they haven’t seen the last of Barricade, and Barricade is seen fleeing from the burning scene.
Transformers – Tales of the Fallen 02 – Sideswipe：
One of the most downright dangerous and deadly Transformers of all arrives on Earth in single-minded, stop-at-nothing pursuit of his prey. If you think we’re talking about a Decepticon here, think again! Meet Sideswipe, the Autobots’ very own lethal weapon.
In a scene of destruction, we see Sideswipe who had failed to protect a colony of Autobots from Demolisher and he says he will stop at nothing and will either kill him or die trying. He rampages through the streets, knocking vehicles out of his way. He knows Demolisher cares nothing for the life forms of the planet and he says he doesn’t either because they only get in his way. Meanwhile, the military asks Optimus if Sideswipe is one of his and he replies that he is. They are surprised because they thought he was an enemy because of all the damage he was causing. Optimus is told that they had an agreement that there are no gray areas and Optimus says that is true and they will deal with Sideswipe. As they get a fix on Sideswipe’s location, Lennox says he’s prepared two C-17s to take off and asks Optimus what to do if Sideswipe doesn’t stand down and Optimus tells him that they’ll have to teach him that if he’s not a solution, then he’s a problem. Ironhide tells Optimus he’ll try to bring him back in line because he feels Sideswipe is misguided but also an asset they need. Optimus asks what makes him think he could reach him and Ironhide tells him that he trained him and understands what’s driving him because he used to be like that too. Optimus tells him to take the first C-17 and that they’ll give him an hour before they deal with Sideswipe the hard way. Meanwhile, Sideswipe arrives at an airport in Buenos Aires knowing that Demolisher is somewhere there. He wonders why Demolisher is hiding because he’s much faster than him but Demolisher is more powerful and left him for dead last time. At that point, the C-17 with Ironhide lands and Ironhide has a flashback on Cybertron when he was telling Sideswipe to stand down only to be ignored. He tried to tell Sideswipe that there’s always a time to advance and to hold fast for reinforcements and this is one of the latter. Sideswipe replies by saying that he may have taught him but now he’s grown beyond Ironhide and left him behind. Sideswipe realizes Demolisher is waiting for reinforcements and so he breaks into the airport, putting human lives at stake in the process. He realizes Demolisher must be in a hangar because he’s not too inconspicuous and then local law enforcement arrives, giving Demolisher the distraction he needed to then come out and strike. Sideswipe realizes that his best chance is to make him angry because that would make him careless which would then make him vulnerable. So he teases him while he fires a barrage of missiles at him. As they continue to battle, Ironhide arrives and Demolisher is happy because he was hoping to destroy more than one Autobot. Sideswipe realizes that Demolisher was waiting for Autobot reinforcements, not Decepticon reinforcements. Demolisher starts to flee the scene and Sideswipe tries to chase after him when Ironhide gets in his way. Sideswipe tells him to step aside but Ironhide tells him that Demolisher wants them to pursue him because it’s just fun and games to him and to let the other Autobots handle it because he’s lost his perspective. Sideswipe tells Ironhide that his sharp edge has grown dull and goes after Demolisher. Demolisher is creating a trail of destruction everywhere he goes as he goads the Autobots to chase after him. As the Autobots approach him, Ironhide tells Sideswipe not to let him goad them because their job is to get him away from the city. Sideswipe ignores him and says his job is to take him down no matter what and tells Ironhide to stay out of his way. As he encounters Demolisher, Demolisher destroys a building and Ironhide gets in the way of the falling debris to protect humans in the vicinity and tells them to clear the area. Sideswipe tells Demolisher his mistake last time was trying to match him blow for blow when he’s much faster and more agile than him. He starts to attack Demolisher taking advantage of his strengths and asks Demolisher how long before he hits something critical. Ironhide realizes he has to stop this soon before it escalates. Demolisher mocks sideswipe and tells him he’s nothing more than an irritation. They continue to battle until they are interrupted by a jet bombing both of them. Ironhide calls for help while Sideswipe and Demolisher start noticing the humans and their capabilities. Ironhide tells Sideswipe that because of him, they’re both on the wrong side of the line. A missile is fired at Sideswipe and Ironhide gets in the way. Missiles are also fired at Demolisher who retreats and says he’ll finish this at a time and place of his choosing. The other Autobots arrive and Lennox says to tell the jets to stand down because of the men on the ground. Sideswipe wants to pursue Demolisher but he realizes that Ironhide was right because he crossed a line and led the humans to believe he was the enemy. He then calls for a medic for Ironhide who was badly damaged and realizes there are still lessons for him to learn.
