Transformers: War for Cybertron Earthrise Trailer Reveals Third Faction

In the history of Transformers, the battle between Autobots and Decepticons has always been the constant. We know the symbols: the bulldog-like Autobot face logo and the pointy Decepticon, in red and purple. But now, in the trailer for Netflix‘s Transformers: War for Cybertron Earthrise, a third symbol emerges. Mercenaries? Independents? They seem to deny they’re a faction at all, but then why have a rallying symbol?

Presumably we shall learn. But if anyone expected “Earthrise” would actually happen on Earth, they look mistaken. It’s a long journey from Cybertron, and that appears to be where most of the action happens.

Based on new toy reveals at Pulse Con 2020, we have some idea where this story is going. But the route to get there remains a mystery. And it should involve several planetary stops as the Ark seeks to evade the angry Decepticons. The highly acclaimed cel-shaded animation and character designs continue to impress, as the great war between machines continues.
