The Tri-State Prison is a human jail in America. Despite hosting a criminal responsible for attempting to control the entire human race in alliance with a race of alien killer robots it has a staff of three and an alarm system that doesn't notice one of said alien killer robots smashing through the perimeter wall and the roof of a building.
Challenge of the GoBots
Zebediah Braxis was sentenced to imprisonment at Tri-State Prison following his unsuccessful attempt to take over the Earth with the Renegades. He graffitied his cell and generally bemoaned being locked up with common criminals - considering himself an uncommon criminal, and being irritated by a fellow inmate's harmonica-playing antics. The warden had little time for his tantrums, but seconds later Pincher smashed through the roof and wall of his cell. Braxis was initially taken aback by the appearance of the Monster GoBot but was delighted to hear he was an emissary of Cy-Kill, leading to the disgraced scientist celebrating his freedom - little knowing what the Renegade leader had waiting for him... Two guards tried firing on the Renegade but were soon discouraged by return fire, allowing Pincher to convert and escape with Braxis onboard. After Pincher dumped Braxis back on Earth he went straight back to the Tri-State prison until the desperate Guardians had him freed to help combat the Nova Beam. Nova Beam
