Toy lines At the movie theater, on TV shows, everyone gets a little wild in the world of Transformers-and the final chapter of the animated version of Rooster Teeth about the conflict between Autobots and Decepticons on their home world is no exception.
Revealed through Collider today the first look at the insanely goofy title Transformers: War for Cybertron — Kingdom relies on the revelation in the last moments at all as incredibly awkwardly titled Transformers: The War for Cybertron — Earthrise. By the end of the final chapter, Megatron’s forces had finally caught up with the remnants of the fleeing Autobot, as the leader Decepticon and Optimus Prime fought for the Matrix of Leadership, only to have their ships crash to the surface of it. ‘an alien world. .which we fully recognize as a primitive Earth. Except that it is Transformers, a franchise about robots disguised as other things, so the real reveal wasn’t that our giant mechanical heroes were on earth, but they were being watched over by a velociraptor who was very not a real velociraptor, and in fact the beloved Dinobot re-imagine from the 90s Beast wars.
the Kingdom the trailer fully leans on the crash of our traditional Transformers heroes and villains in the world of Beast wars. The original CG animated series actually took place 300 years after the events of the first Transformers cartoon, involving evolved descendants of the Autobots and Decepticons called Maximals and Predacons, so seeing them side by side is certainly an interesting twist to integrate Beast wars in this version of Transformers origin story.

The beast war begins when Transformers: War for Cybertron — Kingdom arrives on the streamer on July 29.
