New Transformers Characters SENTIUS MAGNUS and SENTIUS MALUS Roll Out in TRANSFORMERS: EARTH WARS September 14

Learn More During Livestream with Transformers Writer Simon Furman on September 6, 2018

On September 14th, Hasbro Inc. will add two new characters to the Transformers universe; say hello to the SENTIUS TWINS, SENTIUS MAGNUS and SENTIUS MALUS. Both characters will make their debut in TRANSFORMERS: EARTH WARS, the award-winning combat strategy mobile game available for free from Space Ape Games and Backflip Studios on the App Store and Google Play.

In the early days of Cybertron, the home world of the Transformers bots, SENTIUS NOBILIUS served as an honorable guardian of the relics of the PRIMES, the gods of the Transformers universe. To do this task he was given a sword of legendary power, the SWORD OF BALANCE, a blade with the power of creation and destruction. He was betrayed by one of the PRIMES, who, using his own sword against him, split his spark in two. This destroyed SENTIUS NOBILIUS, but created two new sibling warriors: SENTIUS MAGNUS, the guardian of light, and SENTIUS MALUS, the guardian of darkness. Each of these bots now carries one half of the sword, which was split. SENTIUS MAGNUS now fights for the Autobots, and SENTIUS MALUS for the Decepticons. Fans can get a sneak-peek at both characters by checking out today’s announcement trailer.



Transformers writer Simon Furman will be doing a livestream with Space Ape Games developers on Thursday, September 6 at 4:00 p.m. UTC, diving into the story behind the SENTIUS TWINS and providing a look at the characters and game update. Fans can tune in to the livestream by visiting: twitch.tv/transformersearthwars.

TRANSFORMERS: EARTH WARS is a real-time combat strategy game that surpassed 10 million downloads within its first year. The game pairs authentic Transformers storytelling with fast-paced gameplay, beautiful 3D animation and hundreds of iconic characters with diverse strengths and abilities. Download TRANSFORMERS: EARTH WARS for free on the App Store for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch, and on Google Play for Android devices. For more information, visit www.TransformersEarthWars.com.

WHEW! Not the Bayniverse Twins.

Instead, it's...Roulette and Shadow Striker as male samurai who symbolize yin and yang. Sort of.

Sure, why not.

Great, we got DBZ Piccolo :lol:
I've had enough of samurai-themed Tfs, they're just too full of clichés.

are they not just variations of IDW Drift?

Also.. a hero and a villain who each own one half of a sword. Wasn't that the Power Sword thing in the original He-Man mini-comics you got with the figures (before the cartoon ignored all that)

While the backstory is a little silly, I'm definitely down for more new blood in the franchise. Despite the overt samurai theme, their crazy tank-walker alt-modes could fit into the new WfC lines... maybe we'll get toys of them? Even if you don't like their particular backstory, they could easily be repurposed as cybertronian-mode Drift and Deadlock, or generic Circle of Light members. :-?

Did they just re-use the Cyberverse Shockwave mold for both of these?

Maybe new characters for SIEGE :-?
A Leader class figure called SENTIUS NOBILIUS that can split into two Voyager class sized figures.

But their transformation and alt modes remind me pretty much of the new Cyberverse SHOCKWAVEs.

So it's robot Hanzo and robot-ier Genji. And man, I too am getting tired of Samurai Transformers: it was cool when Bludgeon did it blatantly and Dinobot did way more subtly but after Windblade and Drift it seems like it's the cliche 'new cool kid we're supposed to like' gimmick. >:oP

That said, one of them has a bow which is a weapon which doesn't get enough love as a TF weapon, so I'd be fine with them getting figures in Siege, especially if they get reworked into Bludgeon and Banzaitron.

Well, they're new. But this is a fanbase where people keep saying we need new characters and hate them when they show up! I know I tend to do that a lot. :lol:

Yes, that is in fact a true statement. Whether that's a good or bad thing...remains to be seen, at this point. I do love me some Overwatch, but copy-pasting Overwatch character backgrounds/personalities onto new characters in other franchises does not inherently make me like those characters or make those characters good.

I don't see a Shockwave-crab-walker-tank working for Bludgeon, honestly, given he's mostly just been a regular tank. Figures of these two could be cool though, and a Banzaitron repaint has potential since Banzaitron can't seem to stick to a reoccurring alt mode anyway. I think I'd only buy the Decepticon Malus version though, as Magnus and Malus seem like they'd just be repaints of each other, and they'd have to do some retooling on Banzaitron to convince me there. Regardless of what I do or don't buy though, I would be happy to see these two get Siege figures, as it would be more Generations figures of characters that aren't just the G1 cast again.

Overall, new characters are always welcome from my perspective, but they do still have to be good characters.

Well, at least the good half gets bonus point for the bow as I mentionned: bows are criminally underused in Transformers and there is a logic to a samurai-themed Transformers using a bow, namely that the bow was the default ranged weapon of the Samurai. People associate them with the katana and its relatives, but Samurai were trained in a variety of weapons, including the bow and naginata.

Edit: I've thought about it and one issue I have with their design is that they are too similar. Yes they are twins but generally speaking in the franchise twins tend to share a mold but at least have some retooled elements. I think one place where they screwed up is that they should have designed his 'whole' first and given some elements of his design to one and the other elements to the other. Example, say that the whole has both a visor and mouth plate...one could have had a mouthplate and the other the visor.

I want new characters, sure. Drift, Windblade, Victorion... I had no problem with these. Strongarm, Velocity--all good additions.

These, however... they look dumb. I'm sorry. I hope they turn out to be cool, but my initial reaction is... "meh."

In game, though, I'm guessing these will be some sort of powerful weapons for either defending a base or attacking it. Still... meh.

Future, please prove me wrong.

This is actually really cool and unexpected. I wish they could do some sort of Animated Safeguard thing back into their original form, but this is cool.

Wonder if this means toys are in the works?

Considering the backstory they gave him and the presence the Thirteen have in current TF lore: could he have been a servant of Nexus Prime?

Doubtful, his spark was split in 2 and thus formed 2 very opposite twins.

I can see them becoming game exclusives, and the only way to get them is via a leaderboard tournament and even then it's only open to US citizens.

...my disdain for Space Ape is still showing isn't it?

I agree about bow usage being cool, but the little trailer video-thing shows both bots using bows though, so so far they're still basically identical other than one is good and one is evil and their paint schemes.
