Transform and roll out!

Here's another script featuring Transformers written, once again, on 4 July 2007.

I think this has been my weakest script written so far, and it had a horrible one-liner ending. Reading it again, it's really not that funny. I think I was trying to remind people that as cool as the movie Bumblebee was, he was an annoying little twat in the cartoon!

Anyway...enjoy...and I'm saying that very lightly because it's unlikely that you would.

Panel 1 - Optimus Prime, Bumblebee (the old one which turned into a VW) and a few other Autobots standing in a line.

Optimus: "Autobots! Transform and roll out!"

Panel 2 - all the Autobots except Prime and Bumblebee have transformed. Bumblebee looks at Prime and asks:

"Roll out?" The hell does that mean? Shouldn't it be "Drive", or "Speed away", or "Move forward", or "Let's go", or..."

Panel 3 - Optimus takes out his rifle/sword and shoots/chops off Bumblebee's head off his torso.

Panel 4 - The remains of Bumbleebee has fallen to the ground and you can clearly see his "feet" resembling the front of an old school Mercedes Volkswagon. Prime looks straight at the reader and says:

What? He was "bugging" me!

Off panel, or at the bottom right corner of the panel is the word: "ZING!" in bold font.
