    Plot descriptions for preludes episodes 2-4. Via bleedingcool.com from post #114 Megastar
    The Prelude To Transformers: Combiner Wars kicks off today with the first part featuring Optimus Prime. The episodes are meant to set the historical context for the upcoming Transformers: Combiner Wars series. This episode will be followed by ones focusing on Victorion, Starscream and Windblade.

    1) Optimus Prime, the former leader of the Autobots, reflects on the great war and how it finally ended with a duel between him and the mighty Megatron.

    2) Victorion, a Combiner born from the magic of the ‘Enigma of Combination’, describes her anger with this new state of affairs and proclaims her intention to save the Transformers galaxy from the chaos created in the aftermath of disbanding the Autobots and Decepticons.

    3) Starscream, no longer the villain we once knew him as, is now a member of a great ‘Council’ along with The Mistress of Flame from the planet Caminus and Rodimus Prime. The burden of responsibility is heavy on the three due to the destruction and loss of life from the ongoing Combiner Wars.

    4) Windblade, once an official ‘City Speaker’ to the gigantic ‘Titans’ is tired of the bureaucratic non-action of the Council, who seem to sit idly while her people and her cities on Caminus perish. She decides that the only way to end the Combiner Wars is to take matters into her own vengeful hands.

    so my thoughts, promising but this was a bit Disappointing also,

    no Peter Cullen or Frank Welker, Disappointing that its just a glorified moving comic .

    Positives, very g1 looking Prime and Megatron

    story has potential

    Hoping for the best still

    Is that John Bailey doing Optimus? Sweet. I also love the artstyle.

    Too bad that they put so much effort into the artstyle that the animation looks like crap. It's a classic case of God Eater, only worse as at least Ufotable had infinite pockets.

    Still, the tone's there. I hope the story's at least good.

    If that is the actual animation style of the series, this thing is DOA for me: largely still 3D render sliding around backgrounds just doesn't do it, reminds me of those awful motion comics from the early '00s.

    my thoughts exactly, not winning the marketing side of things on this so far are they.

    I hope that isn't the animation style, but for a prelude that didn't suck.

    Also John Bailey had better performances.

    My hopes for the "animation" have been dashed. So it's an over-glorified motion comic. If a motion comic can be "glorified"... :/

    If this was the trailer I saw for this series, without seeing any info on the show beforehand, only to be given what amounts to "Windblade: The series", I'd be pretty annoyed. Not gonna lie. The "motion comic" aspect may probably only be used for the trailer, so perhaps the animation in the show will be better, though I wouldn't be surprised if I was wrong.

    Also. “Prelude To Transformers Combiner Wars: Prime Wars Trilogy.”

    Does this mean we'll possibly be getting three mini-series' based on the main trilogy in the toy line right now?

    Will Windblade be the main star in the other two as well? :redface2:

    I have the same problem...but my VPN isn't doing it either. It seems it is amateur hour and they are going by the user agent of the browser or something else...
    Even with a user agent switcher no go...

    Guess I'll have to wait...

    Not excited at all. Unless if there's real animation and other characters that get the spotlight besides Optimus Prime and Windblade, I'm not interested in the series.
    I'm really happy Bailey finally got to be in an "official" series, but I felt his performance was lack luster compared to some of the great work he's done in the past.
    Overall, I'm greatly disappointed. Not looking forward to this at all.
