Transformers: Combiner Wars is coming to Machinima
Machinima is about to get even bigger as Hasbro has announced a new animated series based on its Transformers: Combiner Wars line that will debut on the channel.
Fans have seen the “Combiner Wars” story evolve in the form of action figures and comic books over the past year, but now a fully-animated series will bridge the gap. This will mark the first “Transformers” series aimed at adult fans of the long-running franchise.
“We couldn’t be more excited to bring one of the biggest franchises in the world to Machinima. Our audiences are huge fans of the comics, movies, toys and video games, and for us to continue the legend with the Combiner Wars is a unique storytelling opportunity,” said Machinima’s Chief Creative Officer Daniel Tibbets.
“We’re thrilled to be teaming up with Machinima on this groundbreaking, new digital series,” said Tom Warner, Senior Vice President for the TRANSFORMERS franchise for Hasbro. “As one of the top global producers and distributors of digital entertainment, they’re 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. We look forward to delivering amazing action, storytelling and characterization that these fans demand, as the Combiner Wars play out across toys, comics, digital games and of course, the brand new animated digital series.”
As the title suggests, the storyline sees groups of Transformers being given the ability to transform into one massive unit. The story will be expanded on in the upcoming Transformers: Devastation video game as well. You can get a taste of the line of toys and a sneak peek at the video game below.
