After the events of Stormbringer, the Cybertronians left Cybertron and spread throughout the galaxy. As the Decepticons infiltrated other planets to stript them of their resources, the Autobots had to do the same in order to stop them.
And this meant adapting to the native technologies, changing their alt modes and strenghtening their armors for the upcoming battles.
The Protectobots were in the front line of this Interplanetary Cold War!
