Leaked poster reveals that Tranformers War for Cybertron: Seige and Earthrise will lead to Kingdom

While we’re all excited to see what happens when the new Transformers series called War For Cybertron: Seige drops on Netflix (here), it seems we now have a big reveal as to where the series will be going down the line.

The series is based on the toyline of the same name and both are trilogies. First comes Seige, which chronicles the war on Cybertron between the Autobots and Decepticons; next comes Earthrise, which sees the war come to earth and the toys saw the warring factions come to earth and adopt their familiar earth vehicle alt-modes.

But what we didn’t know was what the third chapter will be… until now.

A poster has leaked online (bottom of page) and reveals that the third in the toy – and animated series – will be called Transformers War for Cybertron: Kingdom and will feature the Beast Wars incarnations of the robots in disguise.

While the source of the poster is unknown right now, I would bet it is either from the upcoming Comic-Con@Home event (here) or it could be from the Hasbro Pulse Fan First Friday livestream which hits tomorrow night and will see new toys revealed, including this amazing Transformers: Quintessons Pit of Judgment set which will strike a cord with fans of the original movie:

Anyway, I digress, so the poster features the more familiar Optimus Prime, Megatron and Bumblebee but gives us our first look at Beast Wars Predacons and Maximals in the form of Optimus Primal, Cheetor, Airazor, Tigatron, Dinobot, Blackarachnia, Scorponok and Rattrap.

I have to admit that as a kid growing up, Beast Wars passed my by completely, with my heart firmly belonging to the Generation 1’bots, but if this series is as good as looks (trailer) and the toys are as awesome as the Seige and Earthrise ones have been so far, then in the very near future that could all change.

Anyway, any Beast Wars fans in the house? I know it’s a much-loved series among the fans, so let me hear your thoughts, gang.

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….
