The original cartoon look for Transformers is my childhood. And thanks to Hasbro and Machinima, they continue the story, the look and the lore of Transformers in the digital online series.

The companies released the first look images of Transformers: Titans Return, the follow up to the online series Transformers: Combiner Wars. The series is set to debut on November worldwide that features 10 episodes at approximately 11 minutes per episode.

The previous series launched back in August 2016 garnered more than 125 million global views on across a variety of digital platforms.

Transformers: Titans Return picks up where the destruction of the Combiner Wars left off and will be introducing many fan-favorite Transformers characters with new Autobots and Decepticons. In the series, enormous Transformers called Titans are awakened and these massive characters bring massive problems. Trypticon, a gigantic lizard-like Transformer, rises to wreak havoc on Cybertron, while Windblade and a rag-tag team of Transformers must resurrect an ancient ally. Not all Transformers will survive, as beloved heroes are changed forever while others’ sparks are blown to oblivion. And sinister secret will be discovered as there is more than meets the eye.

For Transformers: Titan Returns, the voice of Peter Cullen, who originated Optimus Prime’s voice in the animated Transformers animated series back in the 1980s, will make his debut in this digital series as the voice of Optimus Prime. He will be joined by Judd Nelson, who is reprising his role as Rodimus Prime and Hot Rod from the 1986’s animated Transformers movie. Other notable voices will be Michael Dorn as Fortress Maximus, Wil Wheaton as Perceptor, Nolan North as Metroplex and Jason David Frank as Emissary.

The returning voice talent from Transformers: Combiner Wars will include Abby Trott as Windblade, Jason Marnocha as Megatron, Frank Todaro as Starscream, Lana McKissack as Mistress of Flame, and DashieGames as Menasor. New set of influencers will include MatPat as Computron, Rob Dyke as Devastator and Tay Zonday as Chorus of the Primes.
