The original “Transformer kids” who sat down to watch the cartoon while they raced their toys across a carpeted or hard wood floor in fall of 1984 have seen many depictions of their favorite robots since those glory days of old.
The latest incarnation of the Autobots and Decepticons battle will take place on Netflix (starting on July 30) when a brand new CGI animated series debuts. The Netflix series (courtesy of Hasbro and animation studio Rooster Teeth) is entitled Transformers: War For Cybertron Trilogy – Siege, and will lay the ground work for the series that is said to be inspired by the original cartoon series from 1984.
The final trailer showcases a group of Autobots who are on the verge of defeat, with Megatron and the Decepticons already in possession of the Allspark. Megatron’s plan to reprogram the Autobots so they are loyal only to him is bound to result in some interesting “heel turns” in the new series, offering a darker version of the original premise.
check out the trailer for yourself below and tune in on July 30 when there is bound to be “more than meets the eye”.
