Full Details

Based from a mysterious box that was brought into The Pit, 6 droids have been unleashed. Each has a different function and are all remote controlled by two of Destro's assistants Rory and Glynis in Scotland.

The droid with the Gatlin gun is causing series damage as Beach Head and Duke arrive. Additionally, a flame thrower droid has Hawk and several other soldiers pinned in the control room. The Gatlin droid jumps off a destroyed vehicle to get a better shot at Duke, when all of sudden its vision is obscured. The controller Rory stops the droid and giving Duke the time to attach a sticky bomb that destroys it. New Joe Brainstorm had obscured the vision with a fire extinguisher's foam. One down 5 to go.

On the roof of Castle Destro, The Baroness is holding Destro at gun point talking about how Destro has let the secret organization of which she is a core member of come to be known and for that he must be executed. Destro's dog Clyde attacks her giving him the distraction time to escape.

Back at The Pit, Rock 'n' Roll is leading a squad attacking another droid when it fires missiles at them causing them to take cover as it escapes.

Brainstorm, Duke and Beach Head are in a computer room, analyzing the remains of the box in which the droids came from. This is where Brainstorm confirms that there are 6 droids, well now 5, and that they are unable to communicate outside of The Pit due to the satellite blackout that takes place over The Pit, but if they escape to the surface The Pit's secret location will be revealed. And Brainstorm's identity has been confirmed from visual scans of the droids to Destro.

As they are looking at the screen a droid comes out of a vent, but Scarlett comes crashing through the wall driving a tank smashing the droid. 4 to go. Scarlett then drives the tank into the main hanger of The Pit and destroys another droid. 3 to go.

Dial Tone calls for help, one of the droids has hacked into The Pit's computer servers. She is pinned down. Rory & Glynis get about half way threw their download when Beach Head, an expert marksman, shoots the droids link stopping the download. But the droid is able to escape into a vent shaft that heads to the surface. The secret information in this droid is now the highest priority for the Joes to stop. Because Rory and Glynis can't actually see the information until it has been transmitted and the droid can only transmit if it makes it to the surface.
