Site staff megatronus - taking part in Hascon 2017 with Seibertron himself - reports back from the Prime Wars Trilogy panel part of the event's activities! While we don't currently have images to show you due to some technical difficulties, we do have information on the Titans Return series that will follow Combiner Wars as of this November. Read on below for more, and stay tuned for updates throughout the day!

Machinima Titans Return series will be 11 episodes at 10 minutes each (150 minutes - feature film length). The fan response and critique that the Combiner Wars series was too short motivated Machinima to up the budget. They showed a trailer, and some storyboards.

Overlord will be part of the series - they wanted to make his part organic, and not shoehorn him in. Everything comes together in the 3rd episode (or act? Or segment?) that explains his involvement and fills plot holes.

Metroplex, Trypticon are shown. The importance of Windblade as a city speaker will be highlighted.

Release date: November, episodes to go live twice a week.

I could have better dealt with the shorter length of the CW cartoon if the writing had been done well enough. If the TR cartoon isn't better written, making it longer isn't going to make it a better work of quality, it's just going to make it more painful to sit through. The writing is what needs improvement more than the length.

Give the writing duties to Sakamoto. Let there be fun. Watch as Allspark implodes.

It is nice to hear they followed up on some of the critiques on CW

There is one upside, at least. More of Freddery's wonderful spoofs, and thus more HI I'M WINDBLADE

Yeah, but It seems that the only one they've followed up on(as far as we know) Is the episode length.

It seems to me that they mostly listened to the critiques that were given on Facebook and YouTube, which primarily focused on the episodes being "too short" and the voice cast being "not the G1 actors" or "not *REAL* actors".

As such, we're getting a few more episodes of a slightly longer length, and a voice cast that includes the likes of Peter Cullen and, of all people, Michael Dorn, Wil Wheaton, and Jason David Frank.

Whereas any and all complaints about things like the writing or the animation rendering have yet to be publicly acknowledged in any official capacity, when those were among the more severe problems of the CW cartoon.

I'm actually hyped for this! Overlord will get his second ever cartoon appearance and We'll get some Trypticon on Metroplex action!!! It has previously been revealed that Menasor is returning which is great because he was my favourite from my first watch of Combiner Wars :D Victorion, Computron and Devestator returning :D hopefully they'll get more screentime as individuals and Combined :D I actually watch Rob Dyke so it'll be interesting to see him in an actual role :D The biggest Draw for me has gotta be Fort Max as he might get some actual character outside of IDW :-D and let's not forget the excellent Parody Freddery is sure to do :-D

Haven't read the article on a CW follow up in this (impossibly) long thread.

But I hope they improve, like 500% or more.

Combiner Wars by Machinima was terrible.
- Combiners are killed easily
- Combiners don't combine, they're just bigger robots
- Combiners are no Transformers because they don't Transform (looking at you The Last Knight)
- Framerate is terrible, looks like a powerpoint slideshow
- Can't remember the voice acting so no opinion
- The 3d models are weak and simple
- The effects are worse than cheap, they're for free
- Fight animations are what I make in 3d by rotating some bones (aka terrible)
- They don't capture the feel of Combiners at all, the team should go watch a G1 episode with Devasator in it, build on that

My short opinion there.

I hope they improve atleast all those points.
Just finished watching Transformers Prime incl. Predacons Rising.
Excellent series, they're really creative and innovative with the action scenes, the fight choreography, the camera angels.
Choice of characters, story events.

Practically all fans love Combiners, so messing that up should be really hard work, but they succeeded, it sucks.

I would've given them props if Hasbro made a voyager sized Optimus Prime version of the one in this cartoon.

Anyway hopefully Titans Return (which is to late, the line almost ended) will be longer, have better models, effects and more than 1 frame per 3 seconds. That would be nice.

Courtesy of Den of Geek, we have the official poster for the upcoming Titans return webseries from Machinima. This is the sequel to the Combiner Wars series that got multitudes of hits across the internet and it comes just in time before the end of the Titans Return toyline. As you can see, Trypticon is front and centre along with returning favourites Optimus and Megatron. We also have a few screenshots showing the the style will remain similar to the previous Combiner Wars series.

Enjoy!

I love how if you read the names from left to right it starts professional with Peter Cullen and then it ends with friggen Dashie Games instead of a real name lol.

I do enjoy Mat Pat but why is he Computron instead of someone more suited to his voice like Wheeljack or something?

Considering how much of a role he had last time and that this is no longer centred around Combiners (... not like it was before), I doubt Computron will get that many lines or much more than a cameo. And that's all they could afford to get Matpat in for but they're still posting his name everywhere because marketing.

Are you being serious? "How much of a role"? He had like two or three lines and got killed and then called a nerd in 2 minutes and DIED and stood in the background in the final 60 seconds of the finale.

Exactly; he had little to no role at all. Hence why I doubt he's going to have much of a role this time either.

Which I also find odd. Since when is Matpat a draw?
