    Alright folks....

    The day has finally arrived. The day in which Transformers will join forces within the Machinima world. The very first TF Machinima: Transformers Halo.

    Now I have never technically have posted upon this forum before, however, for your fans out there.... I shall point the technicalitles of this series, this also includes some details of the series plot. For those of you who were utterly dissapointed with Hasbro's production of the Transformers: Cybertron series, you will become quite satisfied with this new "fan-made" Machinima series.

    For those who are not aware of what precisely what "Machinima" is, Machinima is the technique of filming videos or movies within a video or computer game. If any of you have ever viewed the infamous series specified as "Red Vs. Blue" built upon the Halo engine, you are quite aware of what "Machinima" is.

    But anyway, a new teaser trailer of this series has been launched upon Youtube. I am sorry for one thing though, it does not technically "include" the clips from the actual series. But something similar:

    Alright guys, and now for the spoiler plot:

    15 years after the disposal of the black hole that nearly destroyed Cybertron, the Autobots' home planet. A new threat arises, once that could anniliate all life upon Cybertron, and the galaxy. After an Autobot colony is destroyed, with only 87 out of 50,000 survivors, the Transformers upon Cybertron then realized thay will have to combat a force unlike any other that have encountered before, the Covenant. The Covenant council realize that any race who did not believe within their gods, or thse who are "some-what" allies of the humans, must become silenced. With the use of a new Halo that utilizes technology that could be used for time traval, the Covenant travel into the past to destroy the planet, Cybertron. (Explanation): The sole purpose why the Covenant traveled into the past, was to hit the Autobots when they predicted they were technically "weaker" within that time period, which was not the case.

    After an city upon cyberton is destroyed, an Autobot warship with Optimus Prime, and others aboard enters into the time portal that was used to enter into their time period. Once they enter into this portal, they enter into the year 2552. However, they were not the only Transformers who have entered into this time. Other Transformers, from both Cybertron, and other neighboring planets, were sucked into the portal due to it's powerful gravitational pull. The quantity of life upon Cybertron was at it's minimum, which could lead to it's destruction quite simplified.

    Once Prime, and his Autobot troops enter into the portal, they then view the enormous planetoid ring specified as "Gamma Halo". Once their warship was attacked by covenant patrols, they then crash upon the ringed-homeworld. After the crew awake, they realize that their ship has crashed upon the ring. Nearby, they discover three stasis pods in which included three Cyborg lifeforms, three lost Spartans who have thought to have been killed by the covenant the UNSC predicted, originating from the Spartan II project.

    Once they realize that their stasis pods were destabilizing, they immediately remove them from the pods... and into their crashed vessel. Once they wake up, the Spartans tell their names Joshua, Frederic, and Kelly. They tell the Autobots about their purpose, and why they are not with their Spartan relative, the MasterChief.

    With some Decepticons, including Starscream sucked into the portal and upon Halo, within Starscream's hands was a fragment of the Decepticons' leader. With the power from the ring, his spark he regenerated, and Megatron is reborn.

    The Autobots then encounter a Transformer from 2552, his name is Maxelcon. He informs Optimus Prime that there is only one alternative to save Cybertron, and to destroy Halo. With the discovery of six fragments, scattered upon Gamma Halo and other neighboring planets, they possess the opportunity to destroy the ring.

    The Autobots must retrieve these fragments before the Decepticons obtain power from them, and before Halo destroys Cybertron and the Galaxy, and splatters it into a million microscopic pieses.


    I require feedback from each and every one of you! And if any of you have any question upon the establishment of the series, or if you wish to become part of it, please feel free to e-mail me at: theholysisko@hotmail.com

    Thank you very much for your time.

    You know, a Transformers:Halo toy line would have been so much better than the Star Wars Transformers, IMO.

    I dont have any idea what you're trying to do. are you going to mix galaxy force clips with Halo footage? user Master Chief models to represent Transformers? the youtube clip made no sense at all.

    No, we inserted those clips within there just as a sort of gimmick. To give the fans the feeling that this series take forth, and to promote the series overall. And if you have not realized, that was a "teaser" not the actual trailer. The second trailer will include clips from the series itself.

    All of the Transformers within this series are going to be heavily modded with Halo:CE, with new characters designs, and of course alt modes which of course are going to become utterly badass. Lots of effects will also be included aswell.

    Would you like me to point out what alt modes will the characters will possess?

    I am the modder assisting him, if you ever played halo custom edition, you would know about a few of my maps and mods, such as the HCSE mod, or my map Vertigo City.

    I am currently fixing up the 255 animations for the TF biped characters. Stand will be normal, crouch will be their alt mode.

    I have a basic biped readied so far, and if all goes right, all bipeds will be able to use the same animation set.

    Edit:

    Yeah..,.I gotta agree with Valkysas and say that the trailer didn't make me really want to watch this at all. I feel...uninspired...it's just a "hack-and'slash" job and the time stamp was really irritating. Now, when you post an actual trailer, then maybe I'll be more interested. I mean, technically, a teaser usually shows at least something from the upcoming feature, whether it's just a logo or something else.

    Good luck!

    The "footage" is currently under heavy construction. But yes, they will possess Halo alt modes. And also, some of them will be "fan-made". ;)

    Apparently, I have an issue with that aswell. However, I gaurantee all of the fans, the second trailer will include actual footage from the series itself.
