Some more pretty scraps of Machinima's Combiner Wars material to wait out until the next Prelude clip hits the interwebs, straight from the official Transformers Facebook page/Machinima YouTube and Twitter accounts: we take a look at Victorion, the protagonist of the second Prelude, in her character design, and in a brief talk with producer Eric Calderon about her novelty to the project. Check them both out below!

Fellow Seibertronians, the official Transformers Facebook Page has been updated with the third Prelude to Combiner Wars video - this one featuring Starscream, following in his IDW counterpart's footsteps of being the leader of Cybertron. Take a look by following the link below!

Starscream’s no longer a villain? SAY WHAT?! Prepare yourself for a whole new Starscream with this motion comic and remember the 3D animated series Transformers: ‪#‎CombinerWars‬ drops Aug. 2!

Agreed. She actually looks pretty good without the broad manly shoulders.

Do I spy another news crew in the making? ;-) Va'als army grows stronger still.

Anyhow, only one prelude left isn't there?

A mention of Rodimus Prime. Pardon??

Yeah, the Rodimus bit surprised me as well. So far it's looking like it's IDW focused on Combiner Wars and excising MTMTE... which sounds a little like a horror story, but I'll reserve judgement.

I guess it makes sense. There was a mention or feeling of Optimus leaving things behind; and which character is more natural to take up the mantle of Autobot Leader than Roddy?

The press release that first announced these preludes first mentioned Rodimus Prime and the Mistress of Flame as being the other two of Starscream's fellow council members.

Then use the coptors as arms. That's how I have her always. It's how she first appeared in the comics and its looks nice.

Doesn't stop the man-shoulders unfortunately. The problem lies with the torso, not the limbs. Plus, I'm not buying her because quite frankly she looks awful, and I'm off official combiners for good.

It just inspires from IDW but it doesnt represent it nor does it tie into it. This is a stand alone continuity so it takes inspiration from different things, hence why it sounds like a mix of different story elements.

I know, yeah. Just taken at face value it sounds scary

not liking the voice of Starscream

From what I've seen so far, the voices seem like a really good fandub.

Well technically this is all more or less of a fan project with official backing. None of this is handled by hasbro studios. Machinima's content is mostly derivitive of other media (video games, films ect), it's not like they deal with big budgets. I mean think about it, the biggest star they employ is Tommy Wiseau :lol:

Is that Jon Bailey as Starscream also?

Couldn't help but laugh a little at the Leathel Weapon-esque introspective blues guitar soundtrack. :lol:
These are certainly peeking my interest to see how the show unfolds.

Starscream sounds like Frieza in a really smokey blues club.

More specifically, the GOOD Freeza voice.

Whoever's voicing Starscream in this is channeling Chris Latta, and I dig it.

Based on his speech, this Starscream is a more noble leader than his IDW counterpart, truly driven by and caring for the needs of his people, but then again, Starscream is an unreliable narrator. Good tease, though!

I wasn't expecting it to sound like Chris Latta, but the reason why I disliked it was to me it sounded nothing like him, or any other previous Starscream. Just kind of wimpy, generic. So far I am 2 up and 2 down.

Optimus & Victorion I was ok with. Megatron & Starscream, not so much. but I know Megs pretty much wont be in this, so no worries there.
