Optimus Prime Prelude Episode of TRANSFORMERS: COMBINER WARS
"One shall stand, one shall fall."
The first prelude episode for Hasbro and Machinima’s Transformers: Combiner Wars series has been released, and it focuses on Optimus Prime. In it, the former Autobot leader reflects on the great war and how it finally ended with a battle between him and the mighty Megatron. This will be followed by three more prelude episodes that will focus on the characters Victorion, Starscream, and Windblade, and they reveal the current state of Cybertron. Here are some details revealed for each of those characters:
Victorion, a Combiner born from the magic of the 'Enigma of Combination', describes her anger with this new state of affairs and proclaims her intention to save the Transformers galaxy from the chaos created in the aftermath of disbanding the Autobots and Decepticons.
Starscream, no longer the villain we once knew him as, is now a member of a great 'Council' along with The Mistress of Flame from the planet Caminus and Rodimus Prime. The burden of responsibility is heavy on the three due to the destruction and loss of life from the ongoing Combiner Wars.
Windblade, once an official 'City Speaker' to the gigantic 'Titans' is tired of the bureaucratic non-action of the Council, who seem to sit idly while her people and her cities on Caminus perish. She decides that the only way to end the Combiner Wars is to take matters into her own vengeful hands.
Transformers: Combiner Wars is a new series that is targeted to adult fans who grew up with the original Transformers series, and these prelude episodes are being released to help fuel the flames of excitement. It will premiere on August 2.
