Transformers: The Prime Wars Trilogy

Comic-Con: 'Transformers' Animated Series Coming to Machinima (Exclusive)
The series will be based on the 'Combiner Wars' toy line and comic books.
Borys Kit wrote:The Transformers are coming to Machinima.

Hasbro, the toy company now play brand, has partnered with the online gamer and video platform to produce a new animated series based on its Transformers: Combiner Wars line.

Combiner Wars is a storyline that has been playing out across Hasbro’s toys and IDW comic books for the past year and the upcoming Activision video game Transformers: Devastation.

Insiders say it’s the first time these synergistic elements have been combined by Hasbro to tell an overall story.

Additionally, Habsro is creating something a segment of its large Transformers audience has been demanding for years: an animated series aimed at an older audience.

“Our audiences are huge fans of the toy, comics, movies and video games, and for us to continue the legend with the Combiner Wars is a unique story-telling opportunity,” said Daniel Tibbets, Machinima's chief content officer.

Said Hasbro’s senior vp of the Transformers franchise, Tom Warner: “[Machinima is] the perfect partner to help launch a totally new kind of Transformers animation — one that, for the first time ever, is specifically designed for the teen and adult fans who’ve grown up loving the Transformers brand.”

Without going too deep into the complexities of the Transformers universe, Combiner Wars saw groups of Transformers interlock to form one giant robot, known as a Combiner. Superion and Menasor were among the new robots that held the fate of the Transformers’ home world, Cybertron, in their hands.



Machinima Transformers: Combiner Wars 8 Episode Cartoon Coming July, Show Summary Revealed
Taking place 40 years after the great war on Earth, Transformers: Combiner Wars introduces new lore and all-new characters that, combined with the characters fans have known for decades, will bring the Transformers storytelling in a new direction.

The Autobots and Decepticons have disbanded and returned to Cybertron. With the days of Optimus Prime and Megatron over, Cybertron is now ruled by a triumvirate. However, an ancient technology has enabled a new threat, the power for multiple Transformers to combine into one massive, dangerous form: Combiners. Who will stand-up to this threat to ensure that the fragile peace that was 4 million years in the making remains?

Yeah this was first announced almost a year ago

http://www.seibertron.com/energonpub/ma ... 104773.php

It will be a micro series much like the 3 mini episodes that lead up to Justice League Gods & Monsters. But I compare it more to something like GI Joe Resolute, so as to have a frame of reference. I have been looking forward to this for a very long time. It will be short, but hopefully if it does well, Hasbro will be inspired to invest more in animation, instead of just having animated series at their 8-12 year old target audience, in additiona, why not release one animated film per year for teens/adults based on the vast lore of the Transformers across all eras (like what DC does) that would be amazing. I'd definitely be up for that.

Also I should add this will be a very "loose" interpretation of the toys/comic series. Optimus Prime was a big part of Combiner Wars, with his absence, the story has to take an entirely different direction. Also in IDW's CW, combiner Transformers had previously existed, they were just very rare. The Enigma of Combination gave rise to several new teams however. I'm ok with this story being told from a different point of view, Just like the DC animated films however, fans should expect a very lose interpretation, not a faithful shot-for-shot copy of what happened in the comics.

the first episode has been posted.

www,go90.com

unfortunately this is currently only accessible to US residents, however I have a strong feeling this will be on Youtube before long, all the previews were. Anyway, for a 5 minute episode, the first 2 or so minuets were pretty good. Nice big combiner battle, just what I wanted. Then Windblade comes in (ugh...) we knew going in she was going to be a major player, but
Spoiler Below:
cutting down Menasor with ease was Garbage
. Thus we have our Mary Sue. Overall I give it a 3 out of 5 for a nearly flawless first half, and a less than stellar second half. Still I look forward to seeing more in the coming weeks.

^ Oh how naïve I was :lol: , CW unfortunately turned into a dumpster fire as we all know. But for some odd reason, Hasbro only looked at the amount of views, not what those viewers opinions were and decided to give Machinima a deal to make 2 more of these (ugh...)

anyway, for good or ill, The first two episodes of Transformers: Titans Return are now up on go90.com. Only viewers in the United States have access to this. Last year non-US residents had access through Youtube, that is not the case yet...but some unofficial versions have popped up on youtube already, so view them any way you can if you are interested. It's not as bad as CW was, but that's not saying much. It Still has a ton of flaws, but one episode a week will be uploaded for the next 9 weeks on Tuesday Mornings until the series reaches its conclusion.


*edit* if Mr. negativity happens to pop in here, would you mind changing the title of the thread to Machinima Prime wars trilogy or something similar? Just a thought so it covers everything for the foreseeable future. :wink:

I tried watching T:CW on the Go90 site yesterday -- I'm not sure what went wrong but the picture kept turning into big splotches of different colors. Fortunately (I guess) Hasbro but all of T:CW on Youtube -- it looks great (a proper half hour show animate), and the concept has (had?) a lot of promise but boy it does not live up to it.

I think the single biggest let down was when Starscream
Spoiler Below:
gets the Enigma of Combination and then grabs the 4 Combiners and is going to turn himself into a Combiner made of Combiners. And you think, this could be cool, what will Starscream end up looking like? And all we get is Starscream's head and hands in a big cloud.

Halfway through Titans Return and honestly the only thing I like (because it's dumb) is Southern Overlord.
That and Sassy Megatron are the only highlights here.

hate to burst your bubble but there are going to be 10 episodes... :wink: . The pain isn't quite half way over yet. I've heard many people say the same about Overlord. The Japanese version from Masterforce is way more to my liking, but then of course I would not expect to see something mimicking that in this series, this is closer to his IDW counterpart. I guess we can only hope for a major showdown at some point between Megatron and Overlord.

IDW, Masterforce, then this. Well, more eps or no, this is gonna be a weird ride. I was surprised by Overlord, maybe we'll see other Titans Return characters.....save for the actual headmasters, because WHO CARES, RIGHT?

Oddly enough if you look at Preceptor, and Overlord you can tell they have their Titan Masters, but much like CW mostly ignoring the components that make up the larger bots, I doubt outside Emissary we will see any of the actual Titan Masters separate from their bodies. The budget just isn't there, unfortunately.
