Thought some of you might be interested to learn that Hasbro and Machinima are developing a new Transformers Web-Series, titled Transformers: Combiner Wars, that will be geared to adult fans. More blood, guts and action is what was just translated there. The press release states that the transformers involved will combine into a much larger transformer like the Devastator and Superion. This is totally awesome because we already saw what Machinima did for Mortal Kombat and DC Comic’s Justice League via web episodes. Totally stoked to see the final product. We will post more details once they are released.
From the Press Release:
The TRANSFORMERS are coming to Machinima. In an agreement between Machinima and Hasbro, the TRANSFORMERS Universe will be brought to life on the many2many programming service that kicks off right smack in the middle of The Combiner Wars. The series introduces new lore and all-new characters that, combined with the characters fans have known for decades, will bring the TRANSFORMERS storytelling in a new direction as the Machinima series will deliver raging action and signature humor to legions of TRANSFORMERS fans.
"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.
