Quiet on radio as normal, Wreckrotor stood and wiped the slime from himself, grumbling as he did so, he then turned about and walked to the main group and saw the weary lightstream, being of his not so high IQ he sort of yelled at her "Hey, pretty femmebot! You still alive?!" Following this however he heard Hauler over the comms and due to his dislike and lack of understanding began yelling like an old bot does with teletraan "We were attacked by these big slug things!!! They did a lot of collateral damage but I don't think any casualties were caused!!!" After other people began saying things though, Hauler's voice took presidence in his mind as he was atop a slug "Hauler, this is Weeckrotor!!! I'm coming to pick you up!!!" On that note he ran up a crumpled side of a building and transformed into his huge osprey vehicle form and the jets kicked into action, he was in pursuit at mach 2 faster than you could say matrix of leadership and he had his hook and grapple ready to collect
Climbing down from the motionless slug, Hauler transformed into his truck mode and headed towards the other Cybertronian he had seen in the far distance. It didn't take long for the bot to get there, and as he did he could still see the herd of the other slugs trailing of in the distance to wards the financial sector. As Hauler rocked up he transformed back and greeted the other bot, the other slug with him was also motionless and looked wrecked. "Name's Hauler! I was going to ask if your were hurt or needed help but it looks like you already took care of business" greeted the bot.

Lightstream saw that deadlock had manage to drive off the slugs that where coming towards her, Lightstream systems had fixed her eyes and some of her circuits, but the the damage on her legs was more saver, it needed repairs from an medic. Lightstream looked at her energon meter again, a little worried I might add, her energon was down by 57%. "great" she looked for Deadlock who was staring at something, "what are you looking?" them a military Autobot just zoomed past them. "Sound off! Wreckrotor, Lightstream, Deadlock and Hauler! Report and fall in!" "who the heck is this guy?" lightstream was just about to report when some bot was yelling at her. " hey, pretty femebot you still alive?" she turned her head and saw Wreckrotor a few feet away from her, before she could answer he turned his action to Hauler who was coming towards him, and forgetting about the helpless femebot who was losing energon. "you know what?, I had it with not getting help from anyboty" she turn back to Wreckrotor and Hauler a little tick off, "HEY!, if you two are done talking, I could use some help over here!"
OCC: So confused as to who is approaching who x-x I know wrecator is coming to haulers postion. and I am like few feet away from hauler. x-x make the confusion stop.
He held tight to his metal cloak around him as he stood up on the slug. this bot was big and if he slipped up or messed up it would be a difficult task to explain. Why did it have to come to this what choice since he even started up did he have. Serve or die. But it was no secret he was at the mercy since he was way past enemy lines. He looked at the bot and scanned him quickly noticing the box he carried which readings matched the same one he was on. It clearly looked as if it didn't belong. He shifted his glowing purple optic at the the one who introduced himself as Hauler. "I'm fine Henovatron is the name." He walked over as the slug began to wiggles as if trying to keep up with the herd. As he lowered down he activated part of his emitter as she slipped passed the weak protective barrier. He would cover over it not revealing his skill to the bot named hauler as his hand slipped through the metal box as a spark popped. Removing his hand he would then slightly yank the box off the slug turning to hauler hold the same item. "This does not belong on here. This slug did not hesitate to take me out. What's with you bots not not keeping ur slugs leashed.
It puzzled him soon the slug they were on was motionless and less of in a rush like the one hauler was on.
OOC: Please make sure everyone, that you read every post since you last posted - Thank-you. Hauler is a long way from you Lightstream and his comms are failing as stated, it is unlikely he will he hear you right now. Also keep than in mind Prowler. Emirate Deadlock is still on his way to help you Lightstream, but Neo hasn't posted yet.
"Hey these are my slugs! They're native to Cybertron!", whimpered the bot. "It was only when I tore this little box off", Hauler produced the box from his compartment, "That the one I was on stopped! It's reasonable to assume something or someone is trying to control them and that they all have these little devices. We still have a whole herd headed towards the financial sector that we have to stop. So are you going to help me or what?!" Hauler, put his box away.
Arriving and slamming into the ground by the two bots named Hauler and Henovatron, he dove and hit the ground hard transforming in midair, looking at the pair as he did so, he would usually just look down to speak to destroyers like Hauler but he had to take a knee to speak to Henovatron, from this stance he looked up to Hauler and said simply "Who's this little guy? I ain't never seen him before" he then rose up with a grin across his faceplate and said to Hauler, blanking out Henova to mess with him, "you got a pet right? Like a baby bot? But anyways, that ain't the point, what're we lookin at here?" He goy dead serious and looked at the now somewhat docile slug near them and said "Wow, looks like it's had a couple E.D.K Techvolts to the motherboard"
He tossed his box to hauler not sure what he could do with it. As far as helping the him not like he had much of a choice in the matter gripping tight to the emblem hidden beneath his cloak. "Sure I can assist you in the matter seeing as how they dragged me all the way out here."If it wasn't one thing it was another soon the wind picked up as he looked up seeing another mech inbound. As the mech landed He scanned in on the open joints. For reasons his that would not be share among his new companion. The bot comment made him wand to cut him down to size which would have been easy. But paying it no mind he assumed all large bots were and are just war giants with little to no intelligence.
Ignoring the over sized brute he walked past them both watching the herd. Taking a few steps forward as he looked at the two slug who had there boxes removed. For him the box was easy to remove due to his abilities but he wondered if the encryption he bypassed had any type of eruption. "Pardon me for a moment Those boxes on the Slug how did you mange to get yours off? And was there any warning of tampering such as a change in the slugs behavior or perhaps as shock or self destruction of the devices removal?"
Based on his answer it would give them a clue on the main source of how it being signaled. Odd someone would go to all the trouble of controlling such large slugs only for the receiver to be so weak. It had to be more to it than that. The hooded mech turned his head over his shoulder plate.

As the three robots debated about the boxes, the herd carried on in to the financial sector of the city. Citizens ran about in a panic as the slug rolled over them, squashing and crushing many of them under their enormous weight. The slugs didn't stop for anyone or anything. And then before them were the city currency banks. The slugs wasted no time in smashing down the walls of the banks.
As as soon as they bank's defences were ruined and crippled, all of the slugs began to explode. Anyone too close, be it citizen or security, were either burned by the explosion or covered in slime.
Hauler, Henovatron and Wreckrotor were burned and drenched in hot slime as the slug they were on, (ooc: or close too. I'm confused where you guys are exactly). Seeping into their joints the slime just felt uncomfortable and made it hard to move.
The slug that wasn't moving, the one Hauler noticed when he was riding the inside the herd, was the only slug still intact. Its mouth then began to open wide and from it's inners came a squad of decepticons lead by....

"Forward Decepticons! For the glory of the Empire, hahah!!" The warlord Thunderwing came forth leading the charge to bank.
The Decepticons that came out of the slug's mouth consisted of Seekers, all of which took to the air and headed for the bank. Along the way the seekers took shots at anyone they could, citizen or Autobot.
Thunderwing walked about, smiling a toothy grin, happy at all the destruction he had caused. His plan to steal universal credits to buy more weapons for the Decepticons was going as it should. But then something caught his optic. Covered in slime, struggling about, he saw a Decepticon he recognized. "Henovatron? What in blazes are you doing there? Where did you come from? Get over here, thats an order!"

It seemed as if everyone had forgotten about Lightstream as no one was responding to her calls for help and Deadlock had to deal with a slug who was trying to trash a building. But then Streetwise pulled up to her, transformed and gave her a re-energizer pack. He placed the pack on her back and Lightstream began to feel better all ready. "All right Autobot," Said Streetwise. "Time to get into the action. Transform and follow me, were going slug hunting!" With that Streetwise transformed and lead the way after the slugs.

OOC: hey jazz what color do you want in my posts? Lightstream pick her self up and transformed, followed streetwise. "alright! I've been wanting to get some payback on these slugs" Streetwise smiled to himself. "you might just get that chances Autobot". What a gentlebot and good looking too lightstream though to her self, they transformed and jump right in battle Streetwise pulled out his gun and began firing, lightstream pulled out her staff and did a roundhouse kick to one of the slugs. "oh my name is Lightstream, I'm a Cyber Ninja, whats your name handsome?" Lightstream saw he blushed a little.

OOC: Lightstream, we don't post the actions of other player's characters or take them over to talk. Just control your character. And Transformers don't blush, that's the physiological occurrence of temporary redness of the face as an emotional response that occurs in humans, not robots. Plus Transformers can't blush as they don't have blood in their body. And all the slugs have blown up, pretty much dead. And a you'd have as much success roundhouse kicking a humpback whale in real life as you would making Lightstream kick the slug.
"Thuderwing! Get back Henovatron!", shouted the bot in alarm, as her spoke he tried to get his scrapmaker out, one of the few things that wasn't covered in slime thanks to the exploding slugs, his back compartments however that concealed the weapon until usage - were covered in slimed and struggled to open to launch the weapon onto his shoulder. He recognized the Decepticon immediately from past misdemeanors. During the commotion, Thunderwing was already throwing his wait around.
"What - you know this creep?!", Hauler gasped as his back compartments continued to try and open, but struggled because of the slime.
OOC: Fixed it sorry this is why you don't post when your half dead.
Gaining his movement back he looked at the two bots. He was lucky to be wearing his cloak most of it took the blast and some of the slime allowing him to regain full function of his joints. In the event of the blast he still suffered damage which was shown on his armor. Cloak no longer covering the symbol of evil as it shimmered in the rays of the burning slug as a trail of slime traced the side of the emblem.
Deep down it seemed unfair that the two bots were now completely out numbered not to mention that Thunderwing had should up. With so many people over him he never really liked Thunderwing. He had the traits of a decepticon leader but the superiority seemed to bother him more so. Though with his true nature revealed to the two bot he knew they would only get more damaged if they tried to fight. If Thunderwing spotted them if he had not already he would take advantage of that, which bothered him to the core.
A decepticon helping the enemy was unheard of and looked upon as blasphemy. Even Thunderwing knew this, he moved toward thunder wing pausing for a moment as he looked at Hauler and Wrecktor. Even thought he was lacking in facial expression his stance and gaze to them was of mercy. They had done nothing to him to get caught up in such an attack that almost took him out. This is why he did not like this war It was a time when they had Ideals but the slaughtering of the citizens was just pure over kill. He could only gesture in a way that Hauler might get the hint as his eye peered in the direction of the smoke. It was thick and heavy from the explosion but provided a massive cover if they wished to get citizen out unseen from the seekers.
Turning his back on the bots he moved toward Thunderwing as ordered. "Nice of you to nearly blow me up along with them. You have a wire loose?" He didn't care what his rank was since he was forced to join the Decepticons anyway. Fact he was able to recognize him after all this time was surprising.

OOC: I'm confused as to how your electro scrambler would affect anyone if your not pointing directly at said targets. And if you did point it at them how they, such as Thunderwing, who is looking right at you, wouldn't notice. By the way the Seekers are very far away from your position.
