...and right as Transmutate came down with his force field, trying to stop his only two friends from killing one another, he realized it was too late.
Though he stopped some of the firepower they had launched at one another, Silverbolt was no more than flaming scattered remains.
Rampage however, was barely hurt at all, and healing before the mentally and physically challenged robot's eyes.
"Come quickly friend. The maximals are on their way. They will do to us what I have done to the fuzor."
Looking back, transmutate saw the Maximals coming. He grabbed his remaining friend and flew them quickly around the cliff, escaping their pursuers.
It didn't take Rampage long to rewire Transmutate so that his alt mode scanners functioned.
A saber toothed tiger roared from the cliff above, seeing the green scanner rays not far below. And then the light enveloped the creature briefly.
"Transmutate... do this now. Allow yourself to become purely wild. Transform to your new form. Yes... YES! AAAaaaahhahahahhahahhaaaaaaaaaaaaah!"
"ROOOAR! Transmutate make... beast mode."
