Predaking grunted and released his hold on Optimus to avoid more punches to the face from the Autobot. Once he regained his bearings, he once again attacked the Prime.
Smokescreen tried to draw his attention by firing at the dragon, his attempts had little effect as the beast far too focused on Optimus. He watched as Bulkhead all but body slammed the beast then use his wrecking ball/fist to bash the dragon in the face.
The second strike hit home as it hit Predaking right in the eye and nearly crushed the protective covering. He roared in pain and retreated a few paces back, swinging his head back and forth to clear his vision.
Seeing an opportunity, Wheeljack recovered one of his swords and charged. If he was as lucky as Bulkhead, he just might be able slip between the plates of the armored hide and pierce Predaking's spark and finish him.
Nightstalker practically exploded out of the water and charged towards the Autobots with deafening roar. She didn't even give them a chance to fight
