TRANSFORMERS: COMBINER WARS, developed and produced by Machinima, marks the first time the iconic franchise has launched a digital-first series.

Moderated by OMD CEO Monica Karo, the fireside chat with Hasbro Chief Content Officer Stephen Davis and Machinima CEO Chad Gutstein unveiled plot details and never-before seen images (link below) from the highly-anticipated series. The discussion covered the 30-plus year legacy of the Transformers franchise and the new creative partnership between Hasbro and Machinima. The pair shared details on the development process behind TRANSFORMERS: COMBINER WARS, as well as insights into how the two companies combined forces to reimagine the iconic Transformers IP for today’s social-first, content-driven landscape.

Additionally, Davis and Gutstein announced that a prelude series to TRANSFORMERS: COMBINER WARS will launch on June 28 on YouTube, Facebook and go90. The four-episode PRELUDE TO THE COMBINER WARS will help prepare fans for the full series by revealing the current state of Cybertron from the distinctive points-of-view of four characters.

“Machinima is known as a leader of the digital content space and has tremendous creative talent within their network. We are excited to partner with them to tell a new kind of Transformers story for the digital generation,” said Stephen Davis, Chief Content Officer of Hasbro. “The writers, artists and voice actors working on this series are all true fans of the franchise, and their love for these characters really shines through in COMBINER WARS.”

“Transformers is one of the most beloved franchises in the world and Machinima is thrilled to work with Hasbro to bring Transformers: Combiner Wars to today’s social video platforms,” said Chad Gutstein, CEO of Machinima. “Our audience loves these characters and COMBINER WARS has been a true ‘for the fans, by the fans’ effort. We can’t wait to give fans a preview of the series during Cannes.”
