    Mods, please delete/lock if this is not deemed newsworthy, but...

    An Instagram story from @transformersofficial, John Warden is seen talking about SDCC next to what is clearly a poster ofthe next iteration of Combiner Wars/Titans Return/Power of the Primes.

    Looks like the rumors were true, it's a whole new trilogy and the first part is called '...ge ... Cybertron'? My guess is Siege of Cybertron or Rage on Cybertron instead of the rumored War for Cybertron.

    Do you have a link to the Instagram post?

    And the War for Cybertron trilogy wasn't a rumor, it was officially announced. There's a logo and everything.

    Ha, no big deal, man.

    Now it's my turn to feel like an idiot: the link takes me to their Instagram page, but I don't see the post (Story?) you're referring to. Should it not just be at the top of the page? I'm not really familiar with how Instagram works.

    You click on the circle avatar on the top left, it should take you to the video. Definitely a weird design quirk :)

    Then you have to log in to your Instagram account to actually watch the video, which is hard if you don't actually have an Instagram account...

    Yep, that's the issue I was running into. Had to make an account to see the video.

    It looks to me like the WFC logo is below whatever the text is that ends with "GE". Here's the WFC logo, for reference:
    upload_2018-7-6_10-35-21.png

    So I'm assuming that the name of the first sub-line is what's above that logo.

    Get me up when this idiot understand that for a 35 anniversay of transformers you have to make something to celebrate all the franchise not again g1, when they give us unicron trilogy( specially armada it need it) , rid figure, animated( omega supreme, constructicons say hi), prime ( i am still waiting for them to bring breakdown, a good arachnid, season 3 repaints of bumblebee and smokescreen, unicron megatron )and beast wars with not hollow parts missing paint applications and bad color choices, i am tire of g1 i am happy for they ones that grew up with it but please stop transformers is more than the horrible bay movies and g1 , if they have to increase the price to give us goos updates of for example vector prime with thight ankle articulation i will gladly pay 30 for a voyaguer and 60 for a leader i want a good armada super pants prime not the second case of optimal hollow arms, missing and incorrect paint applications, and ruined by a useless gimmick, i want an affordable beast wars megatron i dont want to pay 400 for it

    Doesn't look like there's enough space. I'm thinking a single word, maybe Siege?

    Santa Hound better not be a Comic Con exclusive.

    ______

    Very curious about this line, but I do dread it being strictly Sunbow inspired. I wish they would move beyond that. Early/pre war would be a good time to get some Primes out there, for example. But with this tool John Warden here, I doubt anything outside G1 will be homaged. Hope another Hound comes out at least. We haven't had a non-novelty one in ten years, not counting recolors of that mold.

    How about Purge? Nah, genocide is probably to dark a theme for anything outside the comics.

    Yeah, you might be on to something. Could be Dirge as well.

    Good call, character posters are very popular lately, that would make a lot of sense.
