I like! Good that the character designs ditched the flat noseless archetype that has been the staple since TFA.

Now if the Masami Obari style is sprinkled in.............. :x

I'm confused. They wait until after the line has ended to put out a cartoon? I'm missing something.

I don't understand, they feature Windblade when she isn't a toy? It's meant to advertise the toys! Not the comics!

To the best of our knowledge, it is an adaptation of the Combiner Wars arc in IDW, which very heavily featured Windblade since half of it was in her book. And I don't think it's meant to advertise the toys OR comics, just the brand, in the same way as DC's direct to video movie series.

They'll probably start out that way before going to DVD.

Believe it or not... (stay with me)...Transformers isn't always about advertising toys :shock: . DC and Marvel have produced animated films for well over a decade loosely based on events from various different comics intended to focus on the brand NOT a particular toy. It can be done. IN fact this is what I have been patiently waiting for...for a very long time.

She has at least three toys...


And two more this year: RID and SDCC 2016, the later being part of Titans Return, the sequel to Combiner Wars so why not keep promoting her?

You may remember a few days ago we brought to you a new poster showing off Windblade with some information regarding the new combiner wars series to be coming. Well, thanks to a presentation at MIP Digital Climax, we now have even more information regarding the upcoming series. We have quoted the information below, and it appears that this is a whole different story, set 40 years after the war ended on Earth and with Megatron and Optimus Prime gone. Read up below and let us know in the comments section what you think of this latest update. And as always stay tuned to Seibertron.com for all your latest Transformers News and Galleries.

Taking place 40 years after the great war on Earth, Transformers: Combiner Wars 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.

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?

Interesting, now starscream and windblade are part of that triumvirate but who else? Are they putting bumblebee in that lofty position?

Also I'm happy to hear that optimus and megs have been retired though it will only be for a few eps as obviously they'll be putting ultra prime in there.

If this were truly based on the IDW comic series, I would think Bumblebee would be part of the triumvirate, but with this series, you never know. It appears to be its "own thing" with the whole "40 years after" portion since the premise doesn't really fit into any established continuity, plus the fact that combiners did exist prior to "Combiner Wars" even in IDW (this series makes them seem like something brand new) . Additionally we don't know for sure if Optimus Maximus will show up considering this is "after" the days of Optimus Prime, and Megatron, but it would definitely be a cool reveal though if they did. The only combiner that has been confirmed so far is Victorion, but of course you cant have "Combiner Wars" without multiple combiners right? --July is not that far off. I am very exited for this.

Wonder how many are gonna think "40 years after the Great War" means "40 years after the G1 cartoon". >:oP

Still a bit disappointed that this isn't exactly a full series. But I can deal with it. Anyway, I'm glad it isn't an exact retelling of the IDW story. I wonder how this'll all turn out...

I initially thought that may have been a possibility, until I read that part about combiner technology being "a new threat"...so that obviously didn't mesh. I honestly still think this should be treated like DC's animated films. Loosely based on an existing storyline, but ultimately, its own entity.


As far as future prospects,...it all really depends on how well this is received. Justice League Gods & Monsters got tons of rave reviews from fans, thus the reason more micro episodes are coming out this year.--For the past decade or so DC has treated fans to roughly 3 PG-13 animated films per year.

If Hasbro could give adult fans ONE film per year, or one micro-series event, based on various different existing continuities, I'd be happy with that.

More like 40 years after TF: Prime what with Optimus and Megatron being gone (pretending RID didn't happen) and a new power structure on Cybertron.

It depends on your definition of anime.

If you just mean an animated series where the physical animation is done in Japan there are plenty of American series that would technically classify as anime then: The Transformers, G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero, Batman: The Animated Series, Superman: The Animated Series, Batman Beyond, Justice League, Justice League Unlimited, Young Justice, Spider-Man, X-Men, Transformers: Prime and many many more.

There are some series and movies that are made by anime studios based on American/Western properties: X-Men, Blade, Iron Man, Wolverine, Avengers Confidential: Black Widow & The Punisher, Halo: Legends, Dragon Age: Dawn of the Seeker, Mass Effect: Paragon Lost, Dead Space, Dante's Inferno, The Animatrix, Batman: Gotham Knights just to name some.

Hell most of the recent DC Animated movies Justice League: War, Justice League: The Throne of Atlantis, Son of Batman, Batman vs. Robin, Batman: Bad Blood, and Batman: Assault on Arkham remind me more of anime action movies in how they staged their action set pieces.

Why are you replying to such an old post that was made long before it was confirmed to be an anime-styled series?
