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!

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.

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.D-Maximus_Prime wrote:Sabr and I vote for the same characters??

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.

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

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!

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...

Primal because That's just Prime
Shockwave it is only logical

Same vote! I'll do it again tomorrow!Carnivius_Prime wrote:Mainly cos I just want a new voyager-sized Thunderwing.

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

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

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