A day after surmising on Bottalk that the Machinima Transformers Combiner Wars animated project was lost in development hell, we are treated to a nice screen-cap tease from Hasbro and friends!
An announcement was made by Hasbro today that a prelude series to Transformers: Combiner Wars will be launching on various channels including YouTube and Facebook next week on June 28th! Holy cow, it’s really happening! This series will include four episodes and is mean to prepare fans for the real deal.
From the images provided, a few things can be surmised, specifically Starscream whose body appears to be based on the leader Combiner Wars toy, the current comic version, G1, and specifically the Cyber Battalion figure seen below. Black guns?? Hello!
The full show is set to debut on August 2 on whatever the shit go90 is. I’m sure that we are bound to see this via other channels. In the light of the new Voltron reimagination on Netflix, I’m wondering if Hasbro wishes they could go back to the negotiating table. This series could’ve slayed many dragons if it were on Netflix.
I’ve actually just realized that the Slipstream-looking purple Windblade repaint pictured on Menasor’s arm is actually a brand new character named Maxima! Check her our in badass glory below.
Oh, and if the fact that 50% of the 6 images released so far for this series feature Windblade doesn’t make you roll your eyes, then you’re in luck! It appears we are bound for much wind and much blades come August. I can’t wait!
