This is how Predaking frees the Predacons and they fight Shockwave in The Great Predacon Caper.
Shockwave: I'll be out for a while, Predaking. So, you keep an eye on the Predacon clones whilst I'm gone, alright?
Predaking: Yes, master. [Shockwave leaves, Predaking watches then turns back to the cloned Predacons and grins evilly] If it takes you long enough. He-he-he-he! [activates the Predacons] Join me, my brothers and sisters! Together, we can rule Earth and Cybertron! And the Decepticons [swallows] Will do our bidding!
[The Predacons come alive and step out of their cloning chambers]
Predacons: Yes, lord Predaking!
[Out in the hall, Shockwave is walking. The Predacons suddenly come up behind him]
Shockwave: [sees them] Why are you out of your cloning chambers?
Ripclaw: Because, we grew tired of our prisons and longed to fulfil our destiny.
Laserback: As our leader, Predaking, longed for the day we were free.
Sky Stalker: And that day... has come at last.
Grimwing: We shall finish what we started all of those years ago, and we will finally have our victory!
Predaking: [walks into view] Our long going friendship is over, Shockwave! Predacons, ATTACK!!!!!!
[the Predacons charge at Shockwave, who tries to fend them off but they overpower him and race off. Predaking stares at Shockwave for a moment and then points]
Predaking: We have been under your control for too long, Shockwave! [transforms into beast mode and leaves]
[Shockwave stares after the fleeing Predacons]
Shockwave: [weakly] Why, Predaking? Why? [falls into stasis lock]
Ratchet: Optimus! I am seeing multiple Predacon activity going on.
Optimus Prime: Then maybe, we should go check it out.
Ratchet: Okay. But let's just hope there isn't any Predacon interference. [opens the Space Bridge]
Optimus Prime: Thomas, Bumblebee, Knock Out, Arcee, Hiro, James, Rarity, Ari, Twilight Sparkle, you'll come with me. [to the rest of the group] The rest of you stay here in case any Predacons show up.
Thomas: Yes! I can't wait to see what these beasts can do.
[Optimus and his group step through the Space Bridge. They soon arrive at Shockwave's laboratory, where they find Shockwave in stasis lock and severely damaged]
Thomas: [gasps] [runs over] Shockwave! Wake up! What happened? [shakes him a little]
Shockwave: [wakes up and coughs] [(weakly) Predaking betrayed me. He and his Predacons are now on a rampage across the globe. You must use these weapons if you are to stop them. [holds up the animal weaponry and dies]
Thomas: Shockwave! Shockwave!
Bumblebee: I suppose he is right. We need to use these things if we're gonna stop those Preds.
Optimus Prime: Bumblebee is right. We should tell the others.
Thomas: But we can't just leave Shockwave here to die. We need to get him to the Nemesis Medical Bay.
Optimus Prime: Then, we shall bring him too.
[the group arrives back on the Nemesis, where Ratchet tends to Shockwave whilst Knock Out hooks him up to a Life Support machine]
Ratchet: The Predacons sure made a quick move on Shockwave. I don't know if he'll make it.
Rarity: Well, let's just hope he does.
Thomas: Shockwave did say that these weapons were our only hope of stopping the Predacons. So I suggest that we use them like he said.
Rainbow Dash: Are you crazy?!
Gordon: Thomas, we can't trust Shockwave! He's a Decepticon scientist!
Thomas: Maybe so, but we still have to trust him even if he is our enemy.
Ari: Thomas is right. After all, these weapons are our only hope.
Twilight Sparkle: So we do have to trust him.
Knock Out: I'll try to help Shockwave. If I can get him restored.
Thomas: Thanks, Knock Out. Grimlock, Dinobots, what do you say?
Grimlock: [growls in agreement]
Scorn: I agree.
Thomas: Alright! Team, let's do this!
Everyone: Friendship is Magic!
[Everyone is getting ready for action whilst the A-Team theme is playing]
Bumblebee: Yeah! [puts on his Eagleshot Bow]
Arcee: Alright! [positions her Echo Hawk Bow]
Bulkhead: Let's do this! [slaps on his Dragon Grinder]
Wheeljack: Time to do some wrecking! [pulls out his Falcon Spear]
Grimlock: [transforms into his T-Rex mode]
Thomas: Now, charge!
Twilight: But wait! What if it's not safe and we have to take them all on?
Thomas: Don't worry, Twi. Everything will be fine.
