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 from 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.

Well, how else are you going to know exactly what to criticize about it in order to give a proper, educated critique? ;)

Random Thoughts...

1. Yay! they are actually getting this out in time to be current with the release of the toyline its promoting

2. Finally they can afford to get a combining sequence shown.

3. If I didn't know CW & TR were dumpster fires, This, on its own merits, admittedly, does look kind of cool

4. Where the heck is the jungle coming from? Someone must have accessed the Apocrypha known as BM...erroneously so.

5. I am (poorly dubbed Japanese movie) Optimus Primal you'd think by the 3rd time they'd learn about lip flaps, heck EVEN South Park was able to do it better 20 years ago.

6. So....this is all taking place in Unicron's head....Or was that like a *spoiler* for the next toyline (War For Cybertron is centered around the Chaos Bringer...??)

7. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE Hasbro DO NOT extend your contract with Machinima for more series...PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE!!!!!! NO!

On the other hand, does it really deserve a proper educated critique? Do I need to chug a jar of urine and write a long, drawn out review of the unpleasant ammonia tang before I can tell people that drinking pee is a bad idea when basic instinct is enough? Do I need to try tap dancing in a minefield before I can say safely that stepping on explosives sucks when they're expressly designed to blow up people that step on them? Do I need to play Depression Quest myself to come to the conclusion that, yes, it was an indeed depressing quest (and a scam to boot) when the stink that was kicked up by people who shilled for the game in spite of its apparent awfulness is still haunting the internet to this day? Not everything needs or deserves a "proper critique".

So in answer to your question, Immortal Starscream, you might have developed bile fascination.

I will say, from what little I've seen of it, it's not nearly as bad as some have claimed. Not good either, but not the cartoon Khmer Rouge people say it is. The animation ain't great but it's still better than Energon by a country mile. The writing is bad but that's par for the course with Transformers- good TF fiction is the exception rather than the rule. The voice acting ranges from decent to deplorable but again, see the vast majority of TF cartoons.

I'd say just about anything does, since blind hatred just comes off as annoying trolling.

Besides, if people hadn't watched these, no one would know how good of a diamond in the rough Jason Marnocha's Megatron is, which fully deserves all the praises given.

Blind hatred is annoying for sure. Educated guesswork/"I can tell this is gonna suck, I think I'll exercise good judgement" is not the same as blind hate/trolling. In fact, it seems as of late that showing restraint and not going to see something you know you'll hate is a prime target for actual trolls. See poor old James Rolfe and the torrent of abuse he got after saying "This new Ghostbusters movie looks a bit crap, so instead of paying money to see it and getting angry I'm just not going to watch it and preserve my cash and temper".

Of course when it's free to watch it's a bit of a different story, but even so, no point watching something you know is gonna be trash.

Sometimes it takes a fair watching to see if something really is good or bad.

Like, Animated looked absolutely terrible in its earliest advertisements, but watching the show revealed it to be really good.

And with Combiner Wars, it took people watching it to see just how bad it was since it was hyped up so much as being really good by its creators and a lot of people were really excited by all of its first looks. But then when Megatron came along, people got hopeful again since he was really good. People kept coming back for him to see if either he could redeem the series by himself or if there would be more good things like him to help make the show better.

In cases like that, it took watching the shows so that we could make our educated guesses for later stuff.

A trailer for the upcoming Machinima Transformers apower of the Primes cartoon has appeared online, specifically from the Machinima YouTube channel. The trailer is pretty brief, but establishes the cast, where we left off in the last show, and some new shots of new characters. It give us our first look at the Dinobots in action, Volcanicus, Predaking, and Optimus Primal, as well as our returning characters Megatron, Overlord, Windblade, Megatronus, and Victorion. You can find the new trailer mirrored below!


The past two installments of the series have gotten heavily mixed reviews from fans, and the short break in between Titans Return and Power of the Primes (just a matter of months), makes some concerned that they didn't have enough time to listen to critique and improve the show more. Though, it does fix one criticism that fans had: it is premiering while the coinciding toy line is still on shelves, something the previous two shows hadn't been able to match.
Power of the Primes premieres May 1st, on Go90 and the Transformers Tumblr page. Make sure to catch the official Seibertron review of the show shortly after each episode airs.

Yeah except it was fixed. These things always have been. I mean come on. Look at the gimmick for the leader class. That might have worked for Star Saber by how would it have would have having a smaller bot turn into a bigger one have worked for Hound, Megatron, Deathsaurus, shockwave and Arcee. Like I said a couple of the others sure but it was always gonna be primal due to the gimmick.

Optimus Primal will Make Cybertron Techno-Organic Again!

Well, at any rate, the show will most definitely be garbage like the other two yet I'm still curious to see what happens, namely because this is the return of Optimus Primal to an animated serie for the first time since the end of Beast Machine in 2000, a whopping EIGHTEEN YEARS AGO! Now obviously this is not the same Primal, different continuity and all, but he's still a character which had not been seen in any incarnation outside of mobile games, tie-in comics, manga or the Beast Wars Uprising stories. Beast Wars haters will forever scorn him but let's not forget that before we got all these new continuities (RiD 2001, Unicron Trilogy, Movies, Aligned, Animated...) he was THE other 'Optimus' of the franchise. Love him or hate him but big bot was the original heir to the namesake of Optimus before the big old truck guy got rebooted.

Even if, admittedly, Star Saber would have been nice too...

Obviously I'm all too aware that Chalk could most likely not return due to the whole Canadian actor stuff which is admittedly a shame but expected. Oh well, this stuff happens. Given they depicted the base form Primal with fur I'm hoping he's shown turning into a gorilla and not the 'space log' at least initially.

That said I'm not sure if I like Hellboy Ron Pearlman in the role based on this clip alone but it could just be from how rushed and low quality if the PotP Cartoon but Perlman's line came off as all off and stilted and if his whole performance is like that it will lack everything which make Primal...well, who he is.
