Lastly but not leastly is passion platform Transformers, which you undoubtedly recognise if you were ever a child. There’s 10bn views of Transformers content on YouTube, not to mention four theatrical films, which saw $3.7bn in global revenues.No context was provided to determine what "previous events" are being referred to (the movies? comics? one of the cartoon series?) so can't tell if they mean 40 years before or 40 years after said events. Hopefully will get the context as the promotion of the series kicks up probably sometime in June or July.
Machinima’s contribution to the canon, Transformers Combiner Wars, is 40 years removed from previous events. It’s a time of peace. Cybertron is ruled by a triumvirate … but an ancient technology has emerged, enabling a new threat to take the stage. As in the case of Robocops, there is no trailer we can share for this, but it was worked on by “some of the world’s leading creative minds”: Eric Calderon, FJ Desanto, and George Krstic. It is directed by Kenji Nakamura. License partners are welcome.
Here is some glorious artwork. This is the planet Cybertron, in which you get a sense of the film-like cinematography (“This is not a children’s cartoon!” exclaimed Gutstein).
