Plot Summary: As the Autobots wage a losing battle against the Decepticons during the Cybertron War, Optimus Prime sends his subordinate B-127 to Earth to set a base of operations for the Autobots to regroup. B-127 arrives on Earth in 1987, but loses his voice and has his memory bank damaged during a scuffle with the Decepticon Blitzwing and the U.S. government agency Sector 7 before taking the form of an old Volkswagen Beetle and going into hiding. When teenager Charlie Watson gets the Beetle for her birthday, she discovers it to be the mute and amnesiac B-127 and names him "Bumblebee", but his presence triggers the arrival of Decepticons Shatter and Dropkick, who receive assistance from Sector 7 to hunt him down.
