Being released on DVD from SHOUT! FACTORY and Hasbro comes the seven part story arc seamlessly edited together in this presentation TRANSFORMERS PRIME – ONE SHALL STAND.
This film brings the Autobots and Decepticons into an alliance as Unicron comes into play. It is brought about as Unicron has decided to take over Earth. Now, both sides must decide what this will cost.
Optimus has surrendered the Matrix and has lost the collective wisdom of the Primes. The only choice for Optimus is to return to the ‘pre-prime’ state of the Orion Pax. With his confusion, Megatron takes advantage and talks him into joining the Decepticons.
