Though Marbles had eluded Magmar's hunting parties he was discovered by Saberstone and Spearhead.

Before she could finish the job, she was driven off by Boulder and his tribe.[2]

Saberstone and Spearhead appeared in the episode 64 story "Combiner Wars Part 1" where they observed the visit to Quartex by officials from Earth and GoBotron and reported to Magmar.[3]
