STORY SO FAR:
The war for Cybertron is over, and from all across the galaxy Transformers of all types return home. The world they find is not what they expected… political tensions rise within Bumblebee’s coalition government, and for the Autobots’ airborne Aerialbot squad, the pressure becomes too much. The Aerialbots leave for the primordial wilderness of the reborn Cybertron—regions explored only by Ironhide.
