As the August 2nd launch of Transformers: Combiner Wars [the first installment of the Generations Prime Wars Trilogy] nears, Hasbro Studios and Machinima are preparing fans for the full digital series with the ultimate guide to the futuristic world of Cybertron.
The four-part Prelude to Transformers: Combiner Wars reveals the current state of Cybertron from the distinctive points-of-view of four characters: Optimus Prime, Victorion, Starscream and Windblade.
You can check the first three of the four of the digital episodes out below.
Each episode of the Prelude to Transformers: Combiner Wars provides viewers the necessary historical context to go into the Combiner Wars series with a leg up on other fans.
In the first episode Optimus Prime, the former leader of the Autobots, reflects on the great war and how it finally ended with a duel between him and the mighty Megatron.
Victorion, a Combiner born from the magic of the 'Enigma of Combination,' describes her anger with this new state of affairs in the second episode, and proclaims her intention to save the Transformers galaxy from the chaos created in the aftermath of disbanding the Autobots and Decepticons.
Starscream, no longer the villain we once knew him as, is now a member of a great 'Council' along with The Mistress of Flame from the planet Caminus and Rodimus Prime, in the series' third episode. The burden of responsibility is heavy on the three due to the destruction and loss of life from the ongoing Combiner Wars.
In the final episode Windblade, once an official 'City Speaker' to the gigantic 'Titans,' is tired of the bureaucratic non-action of the Council, who seem to sit idly while her people and her cities on Caminus perish. She decides that the only way to end the Combiner Wars is to take matters into her own vengeful hands.
