Transformers: Prime Wars Trilogy is a toyline and transmedia franchise that is part of the Transformers brand by Hasbro.

Premise[edit]

The main story line is set in an alternate Transformers: Generation 1 continuity.

Arc 1: "Combiner Wars"[edit]

Forty years after the Great War between the Autobots and the Decepticons on Earth, the two factions returned to Cybertron, where Optimus Prime defeated Megatron in a final duel, ending their war permanently. A Council of Worlds was forged, consisting of Rodimus Prime, Starscream and the Mistress of Flame, ruling Cybertron and Caminus in an uneasy peace. However, the rise of the Combiners caused destruction and death on Caminus, setting Windblade, the Cityspeaker of the Titans, on a quest for vengeance. Meanwhile, the Combiner Victorion is on her own mission to find the Enigma of Combination.

Arc 2: "Titans Return"[edit]

Following the end of the Combiner Wars, the Titans are awakened and Trypticon begins to wreak havoc on Cybertron. To combat Trypticon, Windblade gathers up a ragtag team of Transformers to resurrect an "ancient ally". And while some may be forever changed by the events, others may not emerge with their sparks intact.

Arc 3: "Power of the Primes"[edit]

Following the death of Optimus Prime, the rest of the Transformers must band together to survive before Megatronus / The Fallen can wipe out their species forever.[1][2]
