A cassette player, a tank and a t-rex walk into a bar - no, this isn't the start of some corny joke, but a description of Transformers: War For Cybertron Trilogy - Kingdom.

The third and final chapter of the officially licensed Netflix original series promoting the current toyline premiered on the platform today.

Kingdom comes to Netflix during an exciting time for the franchise which is seeing growth in the media segment after many lull years.

While Michael Bay's live-action movie series about the shape shifting robots is divisive, its financial success couldn't be called into question until the fifth movie, The Last Knight, floundered even in Asian markets. 

The next live action flick is coming in 2022, alongside a prime-time cartoon on Nickelodeon and family-friendly comedy series about the diminutive BotBots.

War For Cybertron on Netflix was already an indication of growth, as it was significantly more involved - and developed on a higher budget - than the Prime Wars Trilogy which Hasbro produced with Machinima.

Old timers in the fandom also have the 1986 animated movie's return theatres, for its 35th anniversary, to look forward to.

Transformers: War For Cybertron - Kingdom is streaming now on Netflix.
