Directly from the official Transformers Facebook page, we have our first animated preview of the Machinima series due this August on Go90: Transformers Combiner Wars! Following the events of the IDW storyline, the series uses Windblade as the viewers' perspective into the Cybertronian world - but it's Optimus Prime we hear narrating in the clip. Check out more below, and view the video below or by clicking here.

His name is Optimus Prime, and he was a leader, once. Now The Transformers: Combiner Wars demand his return.

For some reason it's not letting me see the video despite being logged into FB. Is it restricted to North America?

It's working fine for me, you may have to be logged in on Facebook to see it though (just thought of that, no idea if it's true). :-?

I tried tinkering with the post, but can't do much else at this stage.. :(

I'm thinking yes. I'm in Malaysia on a business and it won't open for me either. FB says the link has expired or that I'm not in the target audience.

I don't suppose there is a source to view it for those that do not have facebook?

Nope, I'm in New York and it's not working.

Looks good to me.
But the BIG PROBLEM IS - Its Tuesday the 28th,,,, thus WHERE's THE PROLOGUE ??????
The Machinima Dickheads Twitter acct., YouTube page, & Website DOESN'T MENTION ONE THING ABOUT
"Combiner Wars" anywhere........ WHY Not ???

Ya know,,,, WtF. Right. IMO that's what ya call TERRIBLE, unforgiveable [Machinima] Marketing..

You do know this is the prologue right?


This is all we are getting until August it literally says so in the video.

The stop motion part seems to only be for the preview according to those screen shots from a few weeks ago which looks like normal animation.

I do hope you're right. It would be a shame if the whole thing was done like this, especially considering some of the other animated stuff that Machinima is known for.

If it turns out this was cheaply made then how comes Machinima got a Japanese animating studio to do it and how come it has taken so darn long for this series to actually come out?


Guys I doubt Hasbro will disappoint us that badly.

The link still doesn't work and when I go to the Transformers FB page, the latest post is from the 25th and says "Bruticus may just pack the biggest punch in the Combiner Wars," which I do wish more people would read when they're complaining about him having no weapons because he's basically the hulk of Transformers.

Still nothing. Either get a nothing there message or that I ain't the target audience.

Well, I'm a bit underwhelmed. I did more animation of comic books when I did my own War Within animation for YouTube (and I actually had Jon Bailey on board to voice Primus, too, at the time, though the 3rd part was never finished).

I have a bad feeling that this was somewhat rushed so that it would be available while there are at least SOME Combiner Wars toys on the shelf (as Titans are what will be shipping out soon).

That said--congrats on my boy Jon for scoring an official Optimus Prime role!

Quite disappointed, animation was quite poor, no Combining or Windblade, Prime's animation model looked off, it looked like he was carrying his own legs on the back of his vehicle mode and it didn't excite me at all.

Jon finally gets to voice Optimus in an official capacity! Neat! The motion comic-style animation is neat as long as it stays confined to the prologue. But this prologue itself didn't really say anything, just more ominous "everything changed blah blah blah" like all the buzz has said.
