Hasbro is preparing to move to the second chapter of the War for Cybertron storyline. While “Siege” saw the Transformers still on Cybertron and assuming their Cybertronian forms, now we’re moving on to Earth with the second chapter being entitled “Earthrise.”
Earthrise will see the Transformers reaching Earth and assuming their familiar forms. This year will also see the continuation of customization but the new twist is how will be able to connect various Transformers together to customize the battlefield a bit more.
This really makes us wonder where chapter 3 of this storyline will go. It’s planned as a three-year story arc, so do we move on to Generation 2, or does Hasbro have something else up its sleeve?
You can check out the first Earthrise figures below along with their descriptions.
