You voted, and Hasbro listened!
The 2018 Transformers fan vote winners have been announced. Hasbro’s Transformers Facebook page has been updated with the results of the vote, and the winner was: Impactor vs Mirage.
Check out the video announcing the result here: Transformers on Facebook.
This year’s fan vote was to determine a VS pairing of characters to be featured in the opening chapter of the next trilogy of Transformers Generations, the War for Cybertron trilogy. Set in the early era of the Transformers’ war, this series promises to reveal previously untold stories about the characters, while also delivering some Cybertronian alternate modes for classic characters – for example, one of the other fan vote options was a Wheeljack in his Cybertronian alternate mode from More than Meets the Eye, Part 1.
In the video, we get a bit more of a glimpse of what this series and specifically the Impactor vs Mirage pairing will involve. The story given for the set is that Impactor is the leader of a team of mercenaries, the Wreckers – and it is up to Mirage to bring them into the Autobot fold.
Stay tuned for more news on this successor to the current Generations line, Power of the Primes. The War for Cybertron trilogy is not related to the videogame by High Moon Studios of the same name, although they share thematic elements concerning the early days of Cybertron.
