Machinima and Hasbro have released the first episode of their long awaited Transformers: Combiner Wars series, and it doesn't waste much time in setting the tone for the rest of the series.
The first episode is titled The Fall and shows just how the battle amongst the Combiners is taking its toll on the populace of other planets, including Caminus, where the former city speaker Windblade resides. The action so far is well done, and the more adult tone of the series is established in the inaugural episode. You can stream the first episode here on go90, and you can check out the official episode description below.
Battling Combiners have landed on Planet Caminus – and it's none other than the powerful and logical Computron (composed of the Technobots) and the unruly and wild Menasor (composed of the Stunticons)! Their epic combat is wreaking havoc and there's no signs they're going to stop anytime soon. That's when Windblade, formerly known as the 'City Speaker' of Caminus, enters with her fellow warrior, Maxima. The two of them aren't about to let the battle go unchecked. But can even two mighty Transformers win against these giant threats?
Transformers: Combiner Wars will air a new episode each week, and includes a roster of fan favorite characters that include Starscream, Megatron, and of course, Optimus Prime. The show is being Executive Produced by Eric Calderon, and was written by George Kristic and FJ Desanto.
You can view the official synopsis of Combiner Wars below.
Taking place 40 years after the great war on Earth, the eight-episode digital series introduces new lore and all-new characters that, combined with 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?
