We are dropping by to let all of you know that voting for the next Prime has begun! You can find the vote HERE. We can also confirm for you which characters are in each category:

Honor: Hound, Ultra Magnus, Arcee
Chaos: Unknown Evil (AKA Deathsaurus), Thunderwing, Optimus Primal
Order: Megatron, Shockwave, Star Saber

Full bios have also been provided below. It is especially interesting considering Optimus Primal is considered 'Chaos', which did throw some fans for a loop. The Primal bio also implies he is the King of the IDW colony planet Eukaris, suggesting they are pulling some (but not all, cough Star Saber cough) comic strings into this vote.

You can vote everyday as long as the vote is active as well. So go to the link above and cast your vote! The next Matrix bearer is waiting!

Curious how this is going to translate to toys. What will the overall gimmick be?

jeez Megatron looks a total dork in that pic.


I ovted Arcee, Thunderwing and Shockwave...

Mainly cos I just want a new voyager-sized Thunderwing. He's one of my all time fave TF characters (well, the Marvel one is) and still yet to have a decent toy. 2010 Deluxe as fine but too small and a lil kibble-heavy with the wings. And he's held the Matrix in those Marvel tales too.

Translation: vote for the character you want to get a new figure that may or may not have a gimmick shoved in there for good measure.

For my picks, I went with the down-to-Earth underdog (pun unintended), the guy from the series that the current Hasbro team keeps ignoring, and the obscure Japanese hero who's never had a Hasbro toy.

Magnus and Arcee were both emphasizing "fighting" too much, Unknown Evil and Thunderwing were too obviously corrupt, and both Megatron and Shockwave have gotten and keep getting plenty of new toys.

Why vote? Bumblebee is going to be the next Prime so the series and toys can keep focusing on him :-P

For me, I really like Hound and I feel his characterizations through the years make him a very good Prime candidate.

As much as I like Deathsaurus, I like Primal more, and it's time he officially became a matrix bearer.

And Star saber is very similar to Primal. I like the character and I think he also deserves to finally become a matrix bearer. Megatron was a close second, but I think Saber deserves it more

I voted Primal, Hound, and Star Saber. Arced and Magnus have pretty good figures (so I've heard), Shockwave and Megaton have enough figures, and Thundering and the Unknown Evil (clearly Wheelie) are just too evil to hold the power of a Prime.

It's not about the figures it's about logic!
At least order is
Shockwave is the best candidate since he's the most logical being in the multiverse!
And he answers to no one!

for what reason did hasbro decide to "hide" the "unknown evil's" identity?i mean seriously.it's not like it was a blacked out shadow.it is very clearly deathsaurus/dezaras in very dim lighting

I voted Ultra Magnus, Deathsaurus and Megatron. Not much to it - Deathsaurus was my Number 1 pick from the start and I just didn't like the other contestants in Order and Honour. Arcee and Star Saber actually rank as some of my least favourite Transformers characters lol.

I'm actually kind of amazed they justified Primal's position in Chaos with "sometimes crazy works". That's really digging deep and a huge stretch and I kind of love it. That aside, I really like the idea of him being the king of Eukaris! I sort of wanna see him face down with Cybertron Scourge now...

Ultra Magnus because he's a born leader
Primal because That's just Prime
Shockwave it is only logical

A voyager Thunderwing would be amazing. I'm disappointed I missed out on Thunder Mayhem at the subscription prices.

this was a tough one for me. also I feel Arcee and Primal are in the wrong category, and need to be swapped. I voted hound for sure. Magnus to me is a good leader, and arcee is just an awesome character, but to me hound has all the right qualities, regardless of which continuity you follow him in.

I voted Deathsaurus for chaos, because he is someone who needs some western love, as he was a cool villain who never made it overseas. and no, I don't count the recent skylynx repaint. Primal to me would be a cop out. and we have already had a Primal Prime in the past. though I wouldn't mind an update. beastwars does need some love. and then thunderwing... just give us a new voyager+ scale one and we will call it good.

lastly I went with Megatron, though this was a tough choice for me. one, Shockwave is one of my top faves, and I feel he needs a proper CHUG toy. Star saber like deathsaurus, needs a new toy, and is also one of my faves. however, in my mind star saber is already a prime. at least thats the role he filled in Victory. I know the comic version is a completely diffrent animal, and I would think star saber is due a toy regardless of whether he wins the prime vote or not. Megatron becoming a prime though, after everything that has happened, the dynamic changes hes gone through in the comics as well, just to finally get what hes been after from the beginning, the story possibilities write themselves. at the same time though im not sure we need another megs toy. maybe I shoulda voted shockwave X_X

I just picked my 3 favorite bots.

Optimus Primal is an odd inclusion. Puting him in the Chaos category is also odd.
