The child in me just lost his shit!
Netflix has just released the first trailer for its upcoming Transformers series War For Cybertron, and it looks absolutely epic! While I still consider myself a fan of the franchise, I've only seen one of the recent live action Michael Bay Explosithon films, and prefer to watch the old 80's animated series (AKA toy commercials) and the first full length film.
But this new series has peaked my interest. From the information I could find online, it seems to be a prequel to the original show (but who knows with these twisting and turning storylines, at one point the Beast Wars cartoon was set in the future, but then went back in time!), and brings a lot of the old characters back into the fold, and may actually hash out some huge battles that were only mentioned in previous works.
More than a few of us fans are hoping for something akin to Star Wars' The Clone Wars, a show that can flesh out the near unending struggle between the Autobots and Decepticons with plenty of action and huge set piece battles.
The bigger characters confirmed are as follows:
There is still no official release date on this 6 episode run of Transformers (though I do keep hearing about a June rumour), but if the streaming giant Netflix is dropping a trailer this full of what I believe to be, final footage, it must be just around the corner.
