At the Marvel UK offices, Grimlock emerges from the mail room to announce he's answered his last letter and is off on holiday. He tells a reluctant Stubbie to carry all his cases. Outside Grimlock is anxious to get to the shuttle before his replacement arrives, but the Stubbie is having difficulties with the cases. Suddenly Dreadwind lands and wants to pick a fight with Grimlock, rather than taking his advice to start answering the letters. Grimlock hasn't time for a fight so flicks his tail, causing the Stubbie to fall and the huge pile of cases falls on Dreadwind. Grimlock wonders why a hard case like Dreadwind "can't see that you'll always lose to my hard cases!" Grimlock tells the Stubbie to just bring the ones with fuel in them and leave the rest to Dreadwind, who wonders if he's really suited to this!
