The animated web series “Transformers: Combiner Wars” doesn’t launch until August, but in the lead-up to it going online there are four ‘prelude’ chapters that will hit YouTube once a week with the first launching today.
“Prelude to Combiner Wars” sets up the series which is aimed at older fans of the “Transformers” animated series and toys. The project promises to offer fans the sci-fi action and mythic scope lacking from recent TV show spin-offs. This first prelude chapter looks at Autobot leader Optimus Prime and sets up an alternate ending to that seen in 1986’s “Transformers: The Movie”.
The three remaining prelude episodes will focus on Victorion, Starscream and Windblade and each will further set up the continuity of the new series which launches August 2nd.
