How is Unicron not in the HoF yet? Besides him, I picked Rodimus, Arcee, Cyclonus, and Scorponok.

Motto: ""Death is the only way out.""
Weapon: Sword of Fury
Devastator - What's not Hall of Fame material about the first combiner the franchise had?
Prowl - A classic 1984 character, totally worth a spot.
Lockdown - One of the best characters from Animated, so much so that he's made the jump to other media, including a spot in the new movie.
Bulkhead - Honestly this was a random choice... no reason other than I like him...
Swerve - Because Swerve.

They're doing the Hall of Fame voting this year? Well, better late than never.

I know who I want to vote for! :D

*reads the instructions*

Hrm. :-|

None of them are in the poll.


I get the process that went into making these choices, but... it just... feels a bit limited. Sorta restricted.

That's because it takes a lot of time to tally up the results when it's a free for all due to spelling errors and discrepancies (Skybyte vs Sky-Byte vs Sky Byte vs Sky-Bite), choices of over thousands of characters over the course of 30 years, and that many people don't follow the instructions about how to format answers, I decided it was best (and easiest) to do it this way going forward, especially since the Hall of Fame has been reduced from an extremely cool event to a brief mention at the end of the Hasbro panel. Without the Hall of Fame presentation which was really awesome the first couple of years, I don't see the point of continuing this any more from a time standpoint.

I agree completely. Lockdown was great in Transformers animated, but I can't give him any extra points for being in the latest live action movie. For all we know Lockdown could end up in the "Michael Bay Hall of Shame" with Jetfire, Wheelie, etc.

Here's how I voted:

1) Devastator - The first combiner in the transformers universe and a great G1 toy. The only negative for this guy was the horrible treatment given to him by Michael Bay (See: giant balls). A hugely popular character who should have been put the HOF much earlier than this.
2) Prowl - I'm a sucker for the G1, season 1 cast, but Prowl also was reborn as a kick-ass ninja in Transformers Animated. He's got a lot of great toys from G1, to Animated to last year's Masterpiece. He's in.
3) Omega Supreme - Omega Supreme was the first giant character and paved the way for Metroplex, Trypticon, Fort Max and Scorponok. He's the Wilt Chamberlain of the Transformers world and was a coveted G1 toy back in the day. "Omega Supreme is invincible!" : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L1psVfPb6uA
4) Cyclonus - Galvatron's badass second in-command. Smart and loyal. If Megatron had Galvatron instead of Starscream, the Autobots would have been in trouble. Just a great character all-around who's held up well over time.
5) Rodimus - He edges out Arcee and Unicron, but it was a tough call for me. As a matter of principle, I can't go against the Matrix of Leadership.

Putting Lockdown in now would be the equivalent of putting a pro athlete into their HoF while they're still actively competing, imo.
Listen to me ramble about robots on the Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast.
Every once in a blue moon I write stuff about things on my blog.
I have a lot of Transformers, check them out on my shmax.com page.
Looking for Micromaster Spinner, rare Minicons and Star Saber's Rifle. PM me if you have these for sale!

Even after the explanation for why this site is using the poll format (apparently as opposed to tallying up nominees from the lists in these comments), I see several posts that continue with the lists. Am I correct in assuming that those lists aren't getting folks anywhere on this site?

If so, I would still welcome discussion on this topic. We can all talk about why Swerve is the idol of millions! ;)

The poll is the only data I will be collecting on Monday. If people are posting their nominations but not making selections in the poll, then their "nominations" will NOT count. Hopefully the people who have posted their nomination in their post have also selected their choices in the poll.

Well, unless you vote in the poll, none of those will be counted.

None of my first choices were in the poll either, but I went with what was available.

It seems that when you put in Devastator, it "bumped" my choices to the next previous vote, such as Omega Supreme instead of Overlord, Ravage instead of Rodimus, Springer instead of Swerve. Odd...
