"Now we are playing my game - Turn It Off Or Get Hurt."
- Flint (to the Gamesmaster)
As the Gamesmaster laughs while watching the lawnmower chase the Baroness,
Lady Jaye and Cobra Commander, Koko begins to laugh. Commenting that it
has been such a long time since he has heard his companion laugh, the Gamesmaster
turns around and sees Flint pointing at him and telling him menacing voice:
“Now we are playing my game - Turn It Off Or Get Hurt.”
Flint is grabbed by the Gamesmaster and thrown against a wall, but he
recovers, runs at the Gamesmaster but bounces off the fifteen foot man’s
gut and is slammed against the wall again. Catching sight of Lady Jaye
on the monitor Flint rushes toward the control panel and tries to stop
the lawn mower. Before he is attacked by the Gamesmaster again, Flint grabs
the right leg of the man and causes him to fall onto the laughing Koko,
who is destroyed. Flint pushes more buttons, rips the joystick off the
control pad and stops the lawnmower. Kicking his feet and pounding the
ground with his fists while on his back, the Gamesmaster declares that
Flint cheated and then quickly escapes.
Flint radios Joes headquarters and tells the Joes to zero in on his
signal before it goes dead. Breaker loses contact with Flint, but finds
out where he is located. Duke orders a strike force to be dispatched and
tells Breaker to contact Cobra since they did make a deal.
Rattlers and Skystrikers converge on the Gamesmaster’s island and the
defenses are activated. Toy bi-planes, battleships and missiles are launched.
As Ace knocks out a ship in the Gamesmaster’s harbor, Duke and Destro
destroy the missile launchers. Cobra and Joe forces parachute from the
transport planes and attack the ground forces on the island.
Zartan and Scarlett dodge the shots by toys and toss grenades at their
foes and destroy them. Laughing with satisfaction, Zartan helps Scarlett
up from the ground and tells her that she is a great fighter. Placing a
hand on her hip, she replies, “The competition keeps us in shape.”
Inside the control room, the Gamesmaster blames Flint since all of his
toys are broken, however, before the Gamesmaster attacks Flint, a door
is destroyed by Duke, Destro, Gung Ho and several Cobra agents. The Gamesmaster
flees and the robots holding Flint attack the Joes and Cobras, but are
promptly blown to bits. Flint tells Duke where the bald maniac went and
Duke leads several Cobras and Gung Ho in a chase while Flint shows Destro
that Cobra Commander and the Baroness really are knee-deep in a marshmallow
swamp, a sight that causes Destro to throw back his head and laugh.
Several of the Joes and Cobras chase the Gamesmaster, however, he escapes
aboard a slingshot-launched flying saucer and promises revenge as he flies
Admist the wreckage of the toy soldiers, Cobra Commander tells the Joes
that if they were to combine their forces they would be an unbeatable force.
“You think so?” Flint asks. “We almost got greased by toy soldiers.” Cobra
Commander points at Flint and tells him that he has had enough of his sarcasm
for one day and tells them to leave. Flint agrees to leave, however, Cobra
Commander tells Flint:
Part One - Part Two - Part Three
“Oh, very clever, Flint. How considerate of you. You’ll take off then
circle back and destroy our planes on the ground.”
Flint: “Then, you go first.”
Cobra Commander: “And turn our backs to you? How stupid do you think
Lady Jaye: “Look, have you got a better idea?”
