When Dreadwing captured Bulkhead, he strapped him to a crate at the docks and placed a bomb on him. Optimus Prime and Wheeljack found Bulkhead in time, but had trouble in getting the bomb off him. While Optimus fought Dreadwing, Wheeljack tried to get the bomb off Bulkhead. Eventually, Wheeljack agreed with Bulkhead and Optimus in getting Dreadwing to defuse the bomb. Optimus trapped Dreadwing with one of the claw machines on the dock, forcing the Decepticon to disarm the bomb on Bulkhead. Before he escaped, he activated the other bombs that he had set during his fight with Optimus on the docks, blowing up many crates. After fruitlessly trying to shoo him out of the sky, the Autobots turn around, and Wheeljack asked who to call for clean up.
Optimus, Arcee and Bumblebee went to the docks to retrieve Red Energon. Starscream arrived on sight in the Apex Armor and fought Optimus while Bumblebee and Arcee secured the Red Energon. Starscream came close to getting the Red Energon until Optimus punched him out from the dock's claw machine. Starscream was about to tip over the machine with Optimus, Bumblebee and Arcee on until Smokescreen arrived to save them using the Phase Shifter to get Starscream our of the Apex Armor by kicking him out from it. However he couldn't stop the rouge from stealing a small piece of Red Energon while the rest was destroyed.
