With only a couple of days left before the opening of the latest fan vote process from Hasbro - this time to elect the new Prime of Cybertron, in 'Power of the Primes' - a fellow Transformers fan has pointed us towards the site that will be used for the vote count, giving us more details on the process!

There will be three stages, with the first (Contenders Selection) opening on the 23rd, then revealed on the 27th (Contenders Unveil), and then a final round opening on February 1st. Check out some screenshots below, and the poster for the campaign!

Don't know why I didn't comment on this before, but does anyone find Megatron's helmet design... rather odd? Everyone else has their standard head designs, but Megatron doesn't exactly match any pre-existing G1 Megatron head design.

*points to sig* Yeah. That's who I'm voting for. Megatron all the way. Everybody else (except maybe Shockwave) is nope.

Does this mean the end of Leader Starscream in comics?

I'm going to be really surprised if this is comics related, mostly because of Hound, tbh.

What do you mean vote for Megatron? Aren't we supposed to vote for a new Prime?

Clarity of thought before rashness of action.

Cybertron is in grave danger. This is our darkest hour. We need somebody absolutely dependable! I know! Let's vote for somebody UNKNOWN! And evil! Because that completely makes sense!

I'm surprised that Hot Rod isn't in the running. No Soundwave either. Hound seems completely random too. Mirage and Hoist might as well throw their hats in the ring too.

I'm conflicted. :( I love Shockwave, he's my favorite Transformers character ever. But I know that somebody like him or any of the other Decepticons don't deserve to become the next Prime; they're evil. But, any new toy of any of the options would be great, particularly Shockwave or Saber. I don't know who I'll pick.

That's exactly the problem with having Decepticons on this list it's not the fact that their evil since we have had evil Primes before but it's the fact that an already evil character ascends to being a Prime while still evil and probably does not change his morals afterwards.

While we have had characters like Sentinel and Nova who sometimes becomes evil they at least started out good or not outright evil but became evil after they became a Prime not before.

The corruption of a Prime is an interesting concept when it's not overused like in IDW where Optimus is somehow the purest thing since new born babies but it doesn't make sense that an evil character would ever be chosen as a Prime whether that be by the (un-corrupted) matrix of leadership or by the people.

The only reason it would make sense is if the Decepticon was only parading himself as a self proclaimed Prime which ruins any point of this contest.


I'm voting for Hound because in all honestly he is the only one who can benefit in fiction as a Prime where the other choices either don't make sense or would ruin them such as Ultra Magnus who is interesting without being a Prime.

You do realize that if they get picked they will likely get a new or changed design to fit into a Prime the only one I don't think would change is Star Saber and Optimus Primal

I'm going to vote for a "evil" character in the hopes of them winning and I can giggle relentlessly at the out pouring of whining from the fanboys.

I know who I'm voting for, but I'm scared that people are all going to vote for the unknown evil ironically. I can't be the only one thinking it, either.... right?

Team Arcee. One of my favorite characters and I'd love to see Hot Rod's reaction.

Thunderwing.

Has actual Matrix-affinity in fiction, and needs a new toy!

Yes, Thunder-Mayhem was awesome, but feels more like they made Thundie's story arc into a toy.

Or have we gotten confirmation of the Sky Shadoverlord mold getting the third deco it needs?

Second choice is Primal, just for a repeat of the first HoF fan vote.

Where exactly do you cast your vote? The Round 1 bit on the website where it says "Vote Now" doesn't have a link.
