DeNA via Droid Gamers has launched a fan vote to select characters to be included in the next event episode of the Transformers Legends game. The roster will include 3 Autobots and 4 Decepticons, with the fan-favorite episode set to launch on 7 November 2013.
Of note is that there are some restrictions – Combiners, Triple and Six-Changers are out, as are the big popular characters already heavily featured. However, any Generation 1 character, from the comics cartoons or toyline are all fair game!
Head over to Droid Gamers to find out more and then go to this link cast your votes! The official rules are reproduced below – you might notice the tease against Unicron promising “big plans” for the Chaos Bringer…
1) We’re going to pick 3 Autobots and 4 Decepticons. Those with the highest number of votes win.
2) Let’s avoid the main characters that have already been featured. This includes:
• Optimus Prime
• The Dinobots (Grimlock, Slug, Sludge, Snarl, Swoop)
• Omega Supreme
• Unicron (we have bigger plans for him)
• Rodimus / Hot Rod
• Ultra Magnus
3) No Triple Changers, Six Changers
• Examples: Astrotrain, Skorponok, Sixshooter, etc.
4) No combined-form of Combiners or combined Duo Changers (though we can use the individual characters)
• Devastator, Predaking, Bruticus, Fortress Maximus etc.
5) Make sure they are from the G1 universe, the cartoon, movie and comics are all fair game!
6) The final list is subject to Hasbro’s approval
