Default What the heck is Combiner Wars animation?

I've been looking around this site, and even the web, and I'm having trouble discerning what the heck this new Combiner Wars cartoon is that is coming out next month.

https://youtu.be/Dtaws91dGs4

It talks about this multi-media event called the Prime Wars Trilogy?? What...the actual...[foxtrot]?? It uses the same logo as the toys and the IDW comics, but it can't be the same continuity as the comics, it seems.

Does anyone know what this is all about, or where I can read about what this is...because none of the sites I've found seem to really know what they're talking about.

Thanks!

It's a cartoon called Combiner Wars, based off the toyline of the same name.

Prime Wars is the name given to the trilogy of toylines comprised of Combiner Wars, Titans Return and whatever comes after.

I wouldn't expect it to be the same continuity as the comics in the same way that the cartoons have pretty much always been a separate continuity to the comics.

That's pretty much all the information I'm aware of, tbh.

Ah, okay. So not really the multi-media event that one site was claiming (which unfortunately I can't find at the moment). I thought they were going for something like the TF: Prime, War/Fall of Cybertron, TF novels thing they tried a few years ago (and kinda failed at...it wasn't really the cohesive narrative they said it would be). But I guess they're not.

Don't get me wrong, it looks pretty slick...I was just confused about it and why it's flown under the radar so much.

Thanks for the info!

The cartoon for what its worth actually looks quite good visually and has taken an interesting plot.
