CHANGING GEARS


Some human miners have just struck gold when the Decepticons attack and capture all but one of them. Megatron allows him to call for help, so that the Autobots will come to the rescue.

The Autobots arrive, as Megatron planned, but are unable to attack the Decepticons because Megatron releases the human captives between the warring sides. Megatron then targets and abducts the Autobot Gears.

In Africa, Megatron removes a circuit from Gears that he needs to operate his latest invention, the Solar Needle, which draws energy directly from the Sun. Gears' personality instantly changes from a grouchy complainer to an obedient yes-man, since that same circuit modulated his personality.

Back at the Autobot Volcano, the ground shakes and solar flares are visible. They locate the disturbance in central Africa and leave to investigate.

At the Solar Needle Gears continues to work for Megatron but cannot understand why he loves being a slave. Meanwhile the Autobots blast their way through the dense jungle toward the Solar Needle. Once there the Autobots attack, but discover that Megatron has an energy shield around the operation.

Optimus Prime determines that the only weak point in the force field is through the place that the solar energy is gathered. Cliffjumper impulsively dives into the beam and knocks out Megatron's force field, and the Autobots begin their assault.

Optimus and Megatron battle and Optimus tells Megatron that the Solar Needle will destroy the Sun and the earth, but Megatron refuses to listen. Megatron holds Optimus hostage and forces the Autobots to surrender, but Optimus asks Gears to sabotage the Solar Needle, which Gears is pleased to do. Optimus and the Autobots begin their attack again, and the Decepticons retreat.

After some professional differences of opinion, Ratchet and Wheeljack turn the Solar Needle off and return the Sun to normal, with some help from Optimus Prime. Gears is given his personality circuit back and becomes his old, cranky self again. After they destroy the Solar Needle, the Autobots leave Gears in the jungle while he continues to complain.
