Synopsis of Transformers Annual 1987:

The fate of humanity is at stake when two races of robots, the good Autobots and the villainous Decepticons, bring their war to Earth. The robots have the ability to change into different mechanical objects as they seek the key to ultimate power.

Contents:

In the Beginning…
Subtitled The story of the Transformers … So far, this is a text story recapping the history of the comic. Teen hacker Adam Reynolds logs into the Decepticon mainframe and reads an overview of the Autobot/Decepticon war.

To a Power Unknown!
A mysterious force causes the Autobots and Decepticons to change sides!

Datafile: Optimus Prime
Profile of Optimus, similar to the Transformers AtoZ and Fact File series that ran in the comic, but this was styled as if it was a file being accessed from a mainframe, to tie it into the “In the Beginning…” story.

The Return of the Transformers
Danny Phillips is obsessed with the Transformers having been rescued by Inferno in the previous Annual. While taking a walk, wanders into an abandoned nearby power plant and finds a bunch of Decepticons.

The Transformers Threeplay Quiz
Eight questions, each split into three parts of increasing difficulty, all general franchise questions (eg: Who pressed the fateful button that sent the Ark hurtling towards Earth?). The answers are on the following page.

Datafile: Megatron
Profile of Megatron in the same style as the Optimus profile.

State Games
One of the more influential stories in the comics, this is a text story focusing on the early days of Cybertron, when Megatron was a gladiator in the Games.

Victory!
Following the events in “Dinobot Hunt!”, the Dinobots dream about dying in battle while in a coma-like state.

The Mission
Text story wherein Jazz rushes to save Hoist in barren Alaska, who had fallen down an abandoned human mineshaft while tracking the Constructicons.

Who’s Who: Autobot and Decepticon
Reprints of the Who’s Who features from issues #48 and #53-54.
