"In MY LITTLE PONY / TRANSFORMERS, the scheming Queen Chrysalis casts a spell in search of changeling allies, but accidentally interferes with a distant Cybertronian Spacebridge... and brings the Autobots and Decepticons to Equestria! As the dust settles, it's up to Twilight Sparkle, Optimus Prime, and others to overcome the menace of malevolent magic and machinery!"[1]


The series was initially planned to release weekly during the month of May 2020, but it was delayed to late July/August 2020 and released monthly due to shipping impacts from the COVID-19 pandemic.[2]
