Look out folks, because the Transformers animated world is about to get a little more grown up!

We reported a while ago that Machinima were bringing us a new Transformers series called Transformers: Combiner Wars and it will be aimed at fans who grew up with the Gen 1 stuff in the 80s – in other words guys and gals in their 30s and up.

You and me (probably).

So the show will be based on the sub-section of Transformers called Combiners – like Devastator, Bruticus  and Defensor – massive robots made up of a group of smaller bots who fight each other, usually for Cybertron or Earth, depending on where the story is set.

We’re hearing the new series will feature a load of new characters plus classic characters too – that’s Starscream above), so we’re guessing there’s a good chance this fits into the Gen 1 continuity.

The show will be released in August on go90 with a four-episode prequel mini-series on June 28th across go90, YouTube and Facebook.

We are definitely looking forward to this! Are you?

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
