Hasbro and Machinima, who have been partners on the first two entries in the Prime Wars cartoon trilogy, today announced the full cast list for the finale of the trilogy, Power of the Primes. Interestingly, they note that the last installment will be airing on go90 in the "Spring of 2018", which is just a few short months away, when the Power of the Primes toyline will still be going full force. This is a marked departure from the previous two series, Combiner Wars and Titans Return, which both began airing well after the two toylines had finished and were no longer being sold/promoted in stores- though to be fair, the Titans Return line hadn't quite been finished in stores yet.

So, given the quick turnaround in airtime, and the voice talent for the final cartoon series in the trilogy, are you hopeful for this cartoon? Let us know in the Energon Pub Forums!

got dang this has some serious star power behind it. there've been hollywood movies that've had less notable actors in it! but the question remains; will it continue the upward trend that TR set, or fumble back down towards CW?

Given how well Samoa Joe does with WWE's terribly written promo scripts, I expect he'll do just fine with this.

Snarl? What? Okay then. I guess it’s his time to have the spotlight.

EDIT: Oh, we have Swoop and Sludge too. Poor Slug. He probably wouldn’t care.

OH damn! Jaime King is from my home state! Also, her name is spelled wrong in the press release quote.

Neato!

Samoa Joe as Predaking? I never saw that one coming. Although I recently read that he was an avid gamer and started off as a dancer. (He is not related to the Rock or Roman Reigns) But I hope he can pull off a raspy G1 Predaking voice. I dont want to hear Predaking start talking more than 5 word sentences.

Considering how different the choices for this series has been, I almost see Optimus Primal being Prime reborn by Onyx. Just saying.

Garry Chalk is based in Vancouver, Canada. These shows use union actors mainly from the Los Angeles pool of voice talent.

Also, vancouver Canada is now the home base of Marcello Matere, the man behind Transfomrers packaging art from Armada to now.

Yeah, a few Canadian TF actors have popped up in the Arrowverse. Ty Olsson (Energon Downshift) was the criminal-of-the-week in Episode 2 of Arrow Season 1. Kirby Morrow (Rad in Armada/Energon and Cybertron Hot Shot) was both a minor character in an Arrow episode and Jax's football coach in his debut episode of The Flash. And most prominently of all, Venus Terzo (BW/BM Blackarachnia) plays the recurring Arrow character Dr. Schwartz (Oliver's personal doctor who knows he's the Green Arrow). 8-)

Wow that's cool. I did not know that. I used to watch all the "Arrowverse" shows, up until last year. Yeah, I've always known bout the Canadian actor pool since BW, they are a talented bunch, no doubt about that.

Who is Rodimus Cron? Is that Rodimus Unicronus?

Nah, he'll just quietly explain how he's going to choke out a frightened Volcanicus... and then injure himself and miss [strike]Wrestlemania[/strike] the rest of the series.

Apparently he's the evil Hot Rod that was seen at the end of the last TR episode (who was more Nemesis Hot Rod than not).
