Combiner Wars Animated Series press release
“The Transformers are coming to Machinima.
Hasbro, the toy company-now-play brand, has partnered with the online gamer and video platform to produce a new animated series based on its Transformers: Combiner Wars line.
Combiner Wars is a storyline that has been playing out across Hasbro’s toys and IDW comic books for the past year and the upcoming Activision video game Transformers: Devastation.
Insiders say it’s the first time these many synergistic elements have been combined by Hasbro to tell an overall story.
Additionally, Habsro is giving something a segment of its large Transformers audience has been demanding for years, namely an animated series aimed at an older audience.
“Our audiences are huge fans of the toy, comics, movies and video games, and for us to continue the legend with the Combiner War is a unique story-telling opportunity,” said CCA Daniel Tibbets.
Said Hasbro’s senior vp of the Transformers franchise, Tom Warner: “(Machinima is) the perfect partner to help launch a totally new kind of Transformers animation—one that, for the first time ever, is specifically designed for the teen and adult fans who’ve grown up loving the Transformers brand.”
Without going to deep into the complexities of the Transformers universe, Combiner Wars saw groups of Transformers be able to combine into one giant robot, known as a Combiner. Superion and Menasor were among the new robots that held the fate of the Transformers’ homeworld Cybertron in their hands.”

Thanks to Alfes2010's toyblog and Australian Transformers site Ozformers new in-hand images of the Transformers Adventure Phantom Jaw (Japanese Transformers Robots in Disguise) and Transformers Robots in Disguise Megatronus (5 step changer) have been posted on line.
Alfest has posted images and a write up on Phantom Jaw, the Japanese recoluor of Steeljaw who featuers far more paint detail than the original toy, on his blog
Strongarm was startled, since the car approaching with its sirens on was Decepticon Phantom Jaw. Phantom Jaw transformed immediately and attacked Strongarm. As a very competent intelligence officer, Phantom Jaw took the opportunity once he heard there was an opportunity to act solo against a member of the Autobot. However, after she was caught off guard, Strongarm begin fight back when she regained her posture. Having fought together with the first class warrior Bumblebee, she has grown by leaps and bounds.
Mean while TFW2005 are hosting images taken by the Ozformers owned of the 5 step changer of Megatronus. The toy towers over most of the other Robots in Disguise toys.
Once again sorry for the delay, professional deadlines have be coming thick and fast over the last couple of months though we hope to get back to regular timely updates soon.

#17: L'honneur avant tout (The Honor Above All) "Drift returns to Earth in pursuit of a fugitive Jetstorm. At the same time Team Bumblebee faces Springload and Quillfire who escaped."
