We've gotten teases, we've gotten posters, but finally we have a release date for the next Machinima Transformers cartoon, Power of the Primes!
Announced with remarkably little fanfare over on the Transformers Facebook page, accompanied by a clip from the previous show Titans Return, it's been revealed that the next and final chapter of the series will come on May 1st, just a few short days away. Something interesting to note is that unlike other promotional materials for the new series, like the poster below, neither the post nor the video make any mention of the Go90 streaming service, which both previous shows have been streamed on for free. It will be interesting to see if Transformers has ended it's run with Go90, instead opting for their Tumblr page, which they do link to in this new post.

Whatever the case, make sure to stay tuned for Seibertron.com's exclusive reviews of the new series, coming out immediately following the new episodes!

Wonder what explanation they'll give for primal here? Plus I also wonder if they are going full on beast wars and have primal take on Optimus Prime spark and get his optimal optimus body

It actually says at the bottom of the poster above, that it can be watched on Go90.

That poster is actually a few weeks old. My comment was about how the new post from today only mentions their tumblr.

I fear Transformers is dead. The movies are trash, the shows are trash, and the toys are either trash or are good but never make it to retail because stores don't want shelfwarmers. It's starting to feel like 2006 again but with no light in sight.

This one show made you feel like that? Plus we still have the bumblebee movie from the guy who did that kubo movie. No bay in sight for that one. Plus the toys are still doing well, they may not meet your tastes but the franchise is far from dead. In fact we have the war for cybertron toyline coming and the rebooted idw comics after they deal with unicron (which looks epic)

I'm looking forward to it. My only issue with the previous shows were Menasor's grating voice and Windblade's Anime style grunting and shouting.

Ok Starscream and Overlord could do with better voices but they're not cringeworthy like Menasor.

Judd Nelson is great as Hot Rod. Megatron isn't portrayed as a one dimensional villain.

I like the aesthetic apart from Megatronus looking like Animated Headmaster.

I've enjoyed this a lot more than a lot of the series popular with the fandom like Animated and G1 Season 2.

It's a shame we didn't get more of the Seekers but it was nice to see Sunstorm in a modern cartoon however briefly.

Given how Prime believed Perceptor was worthy of the Matrix, I wouldn't be surprised if the Matrix transformed Perceptor into Primal.

Both characters were portrayed as peaceful scientists.

The third and final installment of Machinima's Prime Wars Trilogy of cartoons, Power of the Primes. is just a few short days away. Meaning, of course, we're seeing more and more promotional material across the internet for it. Today's no different as we have (at least part of) a new poster for the series over on the Machinima Instagram page. The poster is being, well, posted regularly in increments, meaning we've only seen a few sections of it, but the rest will probably be revealed by the premiere date.
Even though we've only seen a fraction of the poster, it still offers some exciting new glimpses into the show we haven't seen before, showing off our first look at the Dinobots and Predaking! Check out the pieces of the poster we have currently, and then check back when the series premieres for our official review!

Looks like Megatron is front and center of the poster. I wonder if the reason he is hidden from full view for now is because of something that Hasbro wants to keep secret about him until closer to the series's release date. Like, if maybe this show might go the route of MTMTE and have Megs wearing a :BOT: symbol on his chest.

I think the time has passed for him to get a new potp toy ;-) but don't worry, he'll definitely get a new toy later this year/early next year for the war for cybertron toy line ;-)^

Or they broke the poster up and reveal a piece everyday to countdown to the show?

So, apparently, Snarl's dino mode head was modeled on that of a third-party toy - https://twitter.com/Speed_Freak01/status/988430609008726019

On the bright side, at least Freddery is going to have more material to work with. The guy managed to take something decidedly mediocre and turn it into one of the best Transformers related things...ever really.
