I voted Wheeljack. Who doesn't love a mad scientist that's actually one of the good guys for once?

BW Megatron it is!

'cause let's face it, as far as evil leaders go, they should have evil plans, and have great grasp on the english language.

And never EVER be ashamed to be caught on film in a bathtub with a rubber duck.

I'm going to be voting for Sky-Byte every day until this is over. Why? Wheeljack and Rodimus/Hot Rod will eventually be auto-inducted one of these years, Arcee has a decent shot at the same, and BW Megs will get anther chance one year or another (if not brought in formally). We need that poetry spewing Con to represent RiD.

Cast my vote for Wheeljack! That boy needs some vindication after he was so freakishly portrayed in DotM and had insult added to injury when his name was switched last minute even though it was in the original screenplay for the film. Show some love for the mad scientist. :grin:

Splitting my votes between BW Megs and Sky-Byte. Seems pointless to vote for the others since they'll likely get in as auto-inductees at some point.

Does anyone have Cybertron Optimus Prime's wings hanging around that they don't need?

I never managed to attach the wings to mine and I thought I'd stashed them somewhere to try again later, but now I can't seem to find them anywhere. Anyone has 'em and is willing to sell 'em, please contact me.

Thank you.

Sky-Byte is one of (if not the) most renown characters of the 2001-2002 Robots in Disguise cartoon, in which he served as Megatron's second-in-command of the Predacons. He was one of the series's comic relief characters (kind of like Waspinator from Beast Wars), except that, whereas Waspinator's incompetence stemmed form getting blown up all the time, Sky-Byte's bumbling nature was due to the fact that his plans almost never worked and/or he'd goof up any other plans performed by the Predacons/Decepticons. But, in spite of his flaws as a field commander, fans really took to the character for his being so hilarious and sympathetic a villain. He was so devotedly loyal to Megatron, a la Beast Wars Inferno and Animated Lugnut, but his loyalties weren't so often rewarded, so one could not help but feel sorry for the guy. But at times when he wasn't failing missions, he was often in a chipper mood with a theatrical sense of (over)confidence. And though he was a Predacon and did a lot of rotten things, at the core, he wasn't all that bad a guy. He was a big softy who liked Haiku poetry and, though he'd never admit it, had taken a shine to the Autobots' human friend Koji. He'd sometimes even have to wind up helping the Autobots out of a jam if it benefitted himself too, such as the time he and the Autobots saved a skyscraper together from falling down on top of themselves (as well as saving the humans atop the building from falling to their deaths). All in all, he was a lovable character with a hilarious and charming personality.

I actually love a lot of the R.I.D. (early 2000's R.I.D.) toys, but that series (toy and cartoon) is probably the least known of all the TF series.

I said it before, there are 500 better choices to induct before Sky-Byte.

More less known than, say, this:

As far as a full toyline with a full cartoon series, I think R.I.D. is by far the least known.

Toyline + cartoon series, eh?

This counts as a Transformers cartoon series. ;)

I..didn't know they had a cartoon series. I know the toys were around for a while, but never saw any mention of a show. It looks so watchable.

Oh, Yeesssss, Megatron, I may pick a day to vote for Sky Byte, but Megatron will get my votes.

Yep, four episodes. Two on VHS with a certain Speed-bot toy, and two more on TV in select markets once or twice.

And, for those of you here (like Ryan) who think the Rescue Bots cartoon should be more "cutesy" like the toys are, and also should have prankster Decepticons who learn a valuable lesson by the end of each episode, this Go-Bots cartoon should be right up your alley. ;)
