Transformers: Prime Basic Plot

Amazon has updated its posting of the Transformers: Prime comic book that will be released around October 1st with a description that finally gives a clue on what the new cartoon series will be about when it debuts on The Hub network. The 88 page book will serve as a prequel to the cartoon, written by Transformers screenwriters and Prime consultants Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman.
This all-new graphic novel adventure leads directly into the all new Transformers: Prime animated series! In this epic first adventure, battles across Cybertron have left Bumblebee and his fellow Autobots in need of a new leader. But is there anyone who can step forward against the threat of Megatron and the evil Decepticons?
It seems that unlike cartoons series in the past, Optimus Prime may be taking a back seat to Bumblebee as the lead Transformer in the series.


  1. I doubt Bumblebee will be the focus of the show, as the title is Transformers Prime, but perhaps he will be the focus of this book as it is a prequel and there apparently is currently no Prime character, at least not at the beginning.

    I'm sure it'll be about Optimus' rise to Prime-hood, there seems to be a lot of that going around these days.

  2. Interesting. The comic book is pretty thick, too.. I hope the comic book spreads the message right, and I also hope that the cartoon itself won't disappoint.

  3. Honestly, if that were the case, I'd be perfectly fine with that. Hope we get a kick butt show out of this.

  4. I believe that this series will tell the stories from cybertron when optimus was not a prime.

  5. to market Bumblebee in his Bay movie design and make him appeal to the movie audience.

    You'll never see a classic take on Transformers in a new incarnation again. Unless Japan decides to do a Robots in Disguise sequel or Beast Wars show with lighthearted comic relief. Wake me when that day happens.
