Hasbro's official Facebook page for Transformers has put out some extra information on the fan-vote poll for the 2019 War for Cybertron figures, which is closing today on social media. The three images answer some of the questions that the brand has been receiving since Tuesday, such as:

Aren’t Needlenose and Tracks brothers? A: Yep! And, you’ll get a glimpse into what drove them apart and led to them joining the Autobots and Decepticons in the War for Cybertron trilogy! Get Excited!

Why antoher Wheeljack figure, we recently got him as a toy? A: Wheeljack is one of the few Autobots whose Cybertronian vehicle alt-mode is seen in the original 1984 pilot episode of “The Transformers”. This version has never before been created in toy.

Why does Impactor wear a Decepticon logo? A: Much like the bounty hunter Doubledealer (who bears the Autobot crest), Impactor wears faction logos which do not align with his true nature as a Transformer. You’ll learn why and how he came to wear the Autobot crest, instead, in the untold stories of the War for Cybertron Trilogy.


Take a look at them below, as well as a reminder of the general rules for those who still want to take part:

  • Needlenose and Tracks - #NeedlenosevsTracks (brother vs brother)
  • Spinister and Wheeljack - #SpinistervsWheeljack (Saboteur vs Scientist)
  • Impactor and Mirage - #ImpactorvsMirage (Greater Good vs Greater Profit)

You vote for the pairing on social media using the relevant hashtag above, but each of the winning figures will be available separately at retail. We will bring you more information as it becomes available!

Given they made Impactor out to be a mercenary in the promo blurb, makes sense that he'd wear both symbols if he works for both sides.

Can't say I'm crazy about the Wheeljack answer though.

They'll just release him in the WFC line though. Impactor is still the far more deserving option.

Wouldn't surprise me if they did. This vote could simply be to determine who gets released in Wave 1, whilst simultaneously gauging fans interest. (I have no doubt they also pop into forums like these to see the responses)

That is what I said a few pages ago. Hasbro would be smart to look over social media to see what the fans are saying.

Warden jumps on TFWiki to figure out who "The Mall" is.

Considering how close the poll seems I really hope it sends a message that all of these choices deserve new figures. Especially the Decepticons and Wheeljack no that we know it'll definitely be the G1 Cybertron mode (why didn't they just say that from the start?).

Themall is Fortress Maximus' goofy younger brother. Instead of a city he turns into just a shopping mall.
