Posted by May 1, 2018 Comment

Hasbro and Machinima have launched the third and final chapter of the Transformers: Prime Wars Trilogy – Transformers: Power of the Primes. This weekly digital series features 10 episodes at approximately 11 minutes per episode. It’s set to run on Verizon’s family of media properties including Tumblr– except in China, where it airs on Sohu.com, and Japan.

Transformers: Power of the Primes features an incredible group of voice talent, including Ron Perlman, WWE Superstar Samoa Joe, former My Chemical Romance bassist Mikey Way (and brother of Gerard Way), and Jaime King (Star Wars: The Clone Wars). They join returning cast members Mark Hamill, who made his debut as Megatronus in the finale of the second chapter of the trilogy, Transformers: Titans Return, Judd Nelson, who is voicing a character new to the trilogy, Rodimus Cron, Wil Wheaton as Perceptor, DashieGames as Menasor, MatPat as Swoop, and Rob Dyke as Devastator.

After Megatronus eliminates Optimus Prime and claims the Matrix of Leadership and Enigma of Combination for himself, the other Transformers bots look to Megatron to lead the charge against their diabolical foe. Unbeknownst to them, Megatronus’s pursuit of the next ancient artifact, the Requiem Blaster, goes beyond his desire for power and the search will uncover mysterious secrets from Cybertron’s past. Before the Transformers: Prime Wars Trilogy concludes, a new Prime will ascend and all will bear witness to the true Power of the Primes.

Transformers: Power of the Primes is being overseen by Executive Producer and showrunner FJ DeSanto; written by DeSanto, Adam Beechen and Jamie Iracleanos; and directed by YUZO. Animation for the show is being overseen by Tatsunoko Productions.
