“Transformers War for Cybertron season 1: Siege” is to premiere on 30th July at Netflix and last trailer released shows the fight between two leaders, Optimus Prime and Megatron and says "One must make the ultimate surface."
The highly anticipated Transformers War for Cybertron: Siege will focus on the war between the Decepticons and the Autobots, with the former having control over the planet. The anime series is supoosed to be a triology and Netflix has already acquired the rights for all three seasons.
The official synopsis says-
"It is the final hours of the devastating civil war between the Autobots and Decepticons. Watch the never before told stories of the Autobots vs Decepticons unfold as Optimus Prime and Megatron lead their iconic comrades to fight for their future. This war ends now. "
Now that we know about the series let's move into each of the Autobots and Decepticons who are going to be a part of this War for Cybertron starting with the Autobot Leader.
Optimus Prime (Autobots):
Optimus Prime (formerly known as Orion Pax) is the Main Protagonist of The Transformers Series and the leader of the Autobots and the last Prime.
Optimus was mentored by Sentinel Prime, the last Prime before him, and eventually became the leader of the Cybertronian scientific division, while Megatron became Lord High Protector of Cybertron. When Megatron was corrupted by The Fallen and formed the Decepticons, Optimus rose up against him in a vicious war.
Near the end of the war, Optimus was forced to launch the AllSpark into deep space to keep it out of the hands of the Decepticons. Without the AllSpark, Cybertron was reduced to a barren wasteland, forcing Optimus, the Autobots, and the Decepticons to abandon their homeworld and flee across space.
Megatron (aka Galvatron) is the leader of the Decepticons and is the Main antagonist of The Transformers Series.
Megatron grew up to become Lord High Protector of Cybertron, while Optimus became the head scientist of the Cybertronian scientific division. Eventually, Megatron came across The Fallen, who corrupted him and convinced him that the AllSpark should be his. Megatron and his followers attempted to seize the AllSpark but were stopped by Optimus and his Autobots, and the Cybertronian War began.
At the end of the war, Megatron captured and interrogated Bumblebee, severely damaging his vocal processor. However, before Megatron could kill Bumblebee, the Autobots launched the AllSpark into deep space. Megatron followed the Cube across space in his jet mode, eventually crash-landing on Earth in the Arctic. However, he froze into the ice before he could search the planet for the AllSpark.
Jetfire was a living legend both in the air and on the battlefield in his day. Sadly, his day has long since passed. His body went south years back. He's got rust in places he didn't even know he had. Basically, Jetfire's old! An ancient Decepticon Seeker, Jetfire was around long before the war broke out, and unlike many, came to see his "comrades" for what they were. This caused him to defect to the Autobots, something virtually unheard of. As a consequence, Jetfire never managed to fully obtain the trust of the others back in the day.
Sickened by the war, the Decepticon Jetfire left Cybertron and went into hiding on Earth. When the war came to Earth and woke him up, Jetfire he decided to rejoin the fight on the side of the Autobots and use his might to bring his former comrades to justice
On Cybertron before the war between the Autobots and Decepticons, Skyfire was a scientist and explorer working with Starscream.
Starscream is the treacherous Decepticon Air Commander and the deadliest of the Seekers. The self-proclaimed pride of the Cybertron War Academy, he's famous not only for his incredible skill, but also for his limitless (and troublesome) ambition. Starscream believes that he is more suited for command than Decepticon leader Megatron. Thankfully for Megatron, Starscream's mutinous, power-grabbing plots are almost always transparent, and he can never muster up enough patience to complete a grandiose power play. Even on the few times he has taken command of the Decepticons, he quickly loses control of a situation, but is too arrogant to realize when he's in over his head.
Starscream's never-give-up attitude extends even to the afterlife: unlike most Transformers, he has a mutant, indestructible spark. His life-force cannot be destroyed and can persist even without a body to contain it.
Formally the political figurehead of the city-state of Vos, Starscream sat ill in his position in the Decepticon ranks, but never posed a real threat to Megatron in their early days, delivering only the occasional snipe or criticism that the Decepticon leader would be quick to put down with a show of force.
Elita One (also Elita-One or Elita-1) is a devoted Autobot and powerful warrior, fearless in the face of the enemy, but compassionate to those who need her help.
Before she was Elita One, she was the simple manual laborer Ariel, who became a renowned Autobot resistance leader, a female counterpart to Optimus Prime. Elita One leads the Female Autobots in a desperate gamble to keep Cybertron out of the hands of the Decepticons. She is sometimes the wielder of a great special power: the ability to stop time through the creation of a field with a fifty foot radius around her. Sadly, this ability drains all of her life force and is thus almost assuredly fatal, leaving her to only use it in the most dire of situations.
She can combine with her female Autobot teammates to form Orthia, or with some Autobots to form the Elita-Infin1te!
Bumblebee is the "little brother" of the heroic or protagonistic Autobot faction and a mascot, constantly striving to prove himself in the eyes of the other robots—especially his leader, Optimus Prime. This often causes him to take risks that put him in danger.
Although a bit of a smart aleck, he is a capable and reliable messenger and spy, his small size allowing him to go places that his larger commanders cannot. He is highly fuel-efficient, has great visual acuity, is particularly adaptable to undersea environments and transforms into a Saturn yellow Volkswagen Beetle. He was later reconstructed into a stronger, more mature form as Goldbug.
At the end of the war, Megatron captured and interrogated Bumblebee, severely damaging his vocal processor due to which he is not able to speak.
Ultra Magnus (Autobots):
Ultra Magnus (aka Magnus and Ultra Mammoth) feels he is a soldier and nothing more. He very much prefers taking orders instead of giving them, and even avoids opportunities for higher responsibility. But when he is forced into those opportunities, he betrays his real talent for the job.
Believing he is nothing but a soldier, Ultra Magnus is perfectly willing to sacrifice himself for the greater good if need be. He knows he's more powerful than the average Autobot, and will throw himself at larger threats accordingly. He is respected by both the Autobots and Decepticons, due to his courage and self-sacrifice. There is a special enmity between him and Galvatron for this reason, for Galvatron may be the most deadly foe of all.
Despite his incredible fighting skills, courage and unmatched talent for improvisation on the battlefield, Ultra Magnus is most comfortable when carrying out orders, and is not naturally at ease if the Autobot Matrix of Leadership should ever find itself placed upon him.
Impactor is the legendary former leader of the Wreckers, an elite Autobot strike team, and as such is a deadly force to be reckoned with on the battlefield. His body is covered with weaponry, from the tank cannon on his shoulder, to the missiles hidden in his chest, to the handgun strapped to his leg, and finally his signature harpoon weapon that replaces his right hand. His audacity and resolve is what puts him in the history books, for better or for worse.
Ratchet is the Autobots' Chief Medical Officer who dislikes violence. If something's broke, he can fix it. He loves having a good time, and his party-loving nature has given him a dry wit. He is not a particularly mighty warrior, which sometimes leads him to believe that he is expendable. Optimus Prime has trouble convincing Ratchet that this is far from the truth.
Although he's a healer, Ratchet often finds himself on the front lines of combat and, on occasion, the last hope the Autobots have. These pressures are sometimes too much for him to handle, but Ratchet ultimately never gives up.
He's taken on the likes of the Decepticons' toughest warriors and is always throwing himself into the midst of the fighting, if it means he gets to defend his fellow Autobots and help save the day. Nonetheless, he remains one of the most genuinely kind members of the Autobots, valuing their friendship and camaraderie above all else, and would never betray their trust. He may not be the strongest Autobot, but damned if he's not one of the most dependable.
Shockwave is a Decepticon lead scientist and has been referred to as "a computer on legs." Logic rules Shockwave's thought processes and is the source of his every inspiration. He sees emotion as a weakness and a distraction. His cold and calculating modus operandi is supported by his frightening and exceptionally powerful form.
Shockwave is possibly even more powerful than Megatron. Perhaps logic may one day dictate that the time to replace Megatron's flawed, emotion-fueled rule is at hand. After all, the only logical choice for Decepticon leader would be Shockwave himself.
Shockwave had created ancient incredible Cybertronian technology that was found to be very useful against the Autobots. He is a skilled fighter, which he used in self-defense against anyone who dare to attack and kill him. Shockwave was devoted to science and didn't get along well with Starscream.
Mirage is what humans call "old money." Before the war, he was a member of affluent Cybertronian society, with his own large estate and high-priced friends. He enjoyed the finer things in life: vintage energon, swank evening events, and turbofox hunts on the grounds. But when the war started, he was forced to choose sides and found himself banded with a group of commoners he didn't really understand.
Mirage (aka Dino) is a little impatient. Armed with a dart rifle, electro-disrupter and the ability to create holograms and turn himself invisible, Mirage is one sneaky robot. When he's not invisible, he can usually be seen with his combat partner, Wheeljack. To accompany his Italian accent, he transforms into a red Ferrari 458 Italia.
Teletraan I is the semi-sentient computer that runs the Autobots' spaceship/Earth base, the Ark.
Teletraan I has extensive communications abilities, and can monitor Earth's television and radio broadcasts to search for news that may be of interest to the Autobots. It also operates the Sky Spy, and was responsible for rebuilding and reactivating all the Transformers aboard the Ark in 1984. Unsurprisingly for a computer belonging to a group of sentient robots, its verbal interface was very advanced.
Teletraan I was quite likely destroyed when Trypticon crumbled the volcano surrounding the Ark in 2006.
Wheeljack is his own worst enemy. Something of a crackpot inventor, a good half of his creations blow up in his face, and that's just if he's lucky. His constant need to invent increasingly complex devices stems from his desire to improve the Autobots' tech, but as a result he's simultaneously one of the Autobots' greatest assets and problems; for every successful gadget he builds, there's one which requires Ratchet or Hoist to put him (and his lab) back together. But once in a while he strikes gold, which has won him respect from even the Decepticons.
As an Action Master Wheeljack utilizes another of his inventions, the dual-mode Turbo Racer, to get around quickly. In some universes he can combine with his fellow Autobots to form Sky Reign.
Most make the mistake of noticing only Arcee's gender, but these first impressions are quickly expanded upon. Arcee is a merciless and deadly warrior who's an expert in hand-to-hand combat and one of the best sharpshooters on record. The reason for her ferocity is how much she cares for her fellow Autobots and especially the humans they protect. She knows how fragile her organic companions are, and she's equally aware of the evils the Decepticons are capable of. Peers such as Hot Rod and Springer may be more durable than the humans, but she no less fights to defend them as well. They get in plenty of trouble, so someone has to be the level-headed one.
If concern for her friends is her strength, it's regrettably also her weakness.
Ironhide is one of the oldest and toughest Autobots, and has been on Optimus Prime's team for a long time. "They don't make them like they used to" is an apt description of Ironhide—he's yesterday's model, but he's built to last.
Gruff and ornery, he prefers actions to words, and dislikes talk for talk's sake. But though he may be rough around the edges, he's still optimistic and upbeat.
Ironhide's most distinctive ability is the water gun, a weapon which can generate and shoot a liquid of virtually any type. Liquid nitrogen is historically a favorite, but there have been acids, mortar, and more.
His vehicle mode sometimes splits into his robot and a separate component. In some universes, he can combine with his fellow Autobots to form Optimus Maximus or Betatron. In other timelines, he will survive the Great War, joining forces with other Autobot veterans to form Magnaboss.
