Transformers Armada Collection One is the first exciting volume of the early-2000's adaptation of the classic robot toy line. This version of Transformers starts off with a montage of the great Cybertron war and how the Autobots and Decepticons are fighting over smaller robots called "Mini-Cons". The Autobots end up sealing up the Micro-cons up in their own little dimension where they can be free and to also stop the Decepticons from using their power for evil as the Micro-cons are very powerful weapons. That doesn't stop the Decepticons from trying to destroy the Autobots and the two rival factions have a gigantic space battle which leads to the Autobots crashing into planet Earth while the Decepticons crash land into the Moon ("The Moon Moon?" to quote Ducktales (wooOOOhh)). Millions of years have past and we flash forward to a high school where we are introduced to three teenagers named: Bradley, Carlos, and Alexis. On one beautiful day we see the teenagers going spelunking in a mountain and come across mysterious devices deep inside the mountain. The mysterious devices are the Mini-cons and they end up partnering with the teens. After they have left the cave they are immediately confronted with a very angry Megatron who is after their Mini-cons. Before they are crushed by Megatron they are saved by a newly revived Optimus Prime who they become friends with shortly after. Optimus explains to the teens that something happened to the Mini-cons and now they are scattered all across the Earth and he recruits the teenagers to help the Autobots find the Mini-cons and stop the Decepticons.
