And the battle continues...
 
Megatron and Soundwave pilot a gigantic hovering fuel transport they had stolen from the [[human]]s over a link on the Alaskan Pipeline. Having bribed a human worker with the promise of a new Jeep, their plan is to discreetly siphon off oil gradually, but Megatron gets immediately impatient. After the nameless Decepticon goons attach the cables, Megatron starts sucking up oil at a ridiculous rate. When the human gets angry, Megatron blasts him... with a stun-ray. Pansy. Little does Megatron know that the human's new Jeep is actually the [[Autobot]] Hound in disguise, who transmits the information back to Prowl at the Autobot base.

When Continents Collide was a Transformers book-and-cassette storybook.

SynopsisEdit

Megatron and Soundwave pilot a gigantic, hovering fuel transport they have stolen from the humans over a link on the Alaska Pipeline. They have bribed a human worker with the promise of a new Jeep, but unknown to them, the Jeep is, in fact, Hound. Hound reports to the Autobots, and Skyfire arrives and destroys the fuel transport, but the Decepticons aboard manage to escape. Megatron attempts another sweeping scheme to acquire a massive supply of oil: using a giant aquatic drilling craft to drain the Prudhoe Bay oil reservoir. They drain the reservoir so quickly, though, that Siberia begins approaching North America and volcanoes start to erupt. The United States and USSR place blame on each other and are on the verge of a nuclear exchange. Optimus Prime devises a plan to pump liquefied razon gas into the reservoir, thereby forcing the stolen oil back where it was before and the Decepticon craft to the surface when the razon returns to gas form. The Autobots board the floating craft, but again the Decepticons have escaped. All they discover is a computer endlessly repeating, "A Decepticon universe is at hand... A Decepticon universe is at hand..."

And the battle continues...

StatsEdit

As part of the "See & Read" series, this story came in two different formats, both times as the second story in a set alongside "Satellite of Doom".

Both stories were told in picture-book form, coming with a record with the story narrations and acting on it (an audio cassette version was also released). This version also came packaged with the yellow version of Cliffjumper — who didn't appear in the stories.

An "animated" VHS version was also available, using chroma-key to animate the static pictures cheesily, with the storybook text superimposed on the bottom of the screen.
