Introducing: The Mechanic!
"No job too big.. or too small.."

While the Autobots are performing a funeral ceremony for the late Optimus Prime, Ratchet goes looking for spare parts in a junkyard. He runs into The Mechanic, a notorious car thief who makes Ratchet into his escape vehicle. After discovering their ride is more than an ambulance, The Mechanic and his parner follow Ratchet to the Ark in order to steal its weaponry. They set off the Ark's defense systems, making the returning Autobots fall right into an ambush.
