Wow! No love for Sky-byte, huh? :(
I'll have you guys know I'm pretty fond of him myself, and I know several others who are too. I wasn't aware the other sites voted him enough to get him in though. How many votes did he have on seib.com? like 5? :/ o well, he's in for the running now. I'll probably still go Megs, but had I known there was a movement for sky-byte I might have joined in for that. Maybe I'll alternate voting for these two.... hmmm.

As for the others, especially not enthused about them thanks to the bios. Me no likey this "all one continuity" idea. X(

Rodimus would probably be my #3 though. I'm not fond of him as prime, but I love Hot Rod. :)

Yes, Rodimus gets in! :grin: Sky-byte? Really? :BANG_HEAD: WJ is okay, and Arcce's bio didn't make any sense at all :BOOM: . BW Megs is alright :twisted: . But I will go 4 Rodimus all the way. He destroyed Unicron, mopped the floor with Galvatron, and reunited Cybertron. All in one day. It don't get much better than that. :BOWDOWN:

OK G1 FANS LISTEN UP!!! As I see it now this will probably end up with Wheeljack and Rodimus splitting the vote we HAVE to pick one to get behind or another BW character will sneak in. I Rodimus should go in since he was a Prime but I'll go however you want. Just don't tell Beast Wars fans what's going on.

I think G1 fans have too much integritiy to comprimise the choice they truely believe in simply for the sake of competing in the HOF. But if I really had to choose someone beside Arcee, I choose Wheeljack.
And Rodimus got to do all that crazy stuff simply because the Matrix chose him. He might have fought through a long journey, but he didn't win anything solely on his own power. He had help. JUST SAYING.

He did look badass fighting the sharkticons tho.

Why is Scorponok never a finalist? :???:

Of these though, my vote would go to Sky-Byte, followed by... um... maybe Rodimus, then Megs, Wheeljack, and finally Arcee. I never really liked Arcee until Prime. And either way, these are all pretty good choices and would be a toss up to me.

I'd be down with Scorponok being inducted, but man would it be a bitch to see them splice videos of him with bay-verse scorponok. It would be like... wooo power, all that might.. and then scenes of basically a pet to bigger Decepticons.

That's ok, they can just induct G1 and Energon Scorponok. BW characters are being split from the regular cast (see Megatron) I assume because their personalities and what not differ greatly for the most part compared to their namesakes, so BW Scorp wouldn't have to be included. And movie Scoroponok isn't even close to his previous incarnations, so he probably wouldn't be a part of the "green and purple Scorponok" induction, had there been, or will be one.

Routine: Last years losers are this years inductees (except Erector)

Stupid: Skybyte

Question: Why doesnt Grimlock just get an automatic induction like Prime and Bumblebee got ? He is up there probally in the top 10 favorites of all time.

Edit: just realized Grimlocks getting inducted. Like I said before, Last years losers are this years inductees. Of course we will be seeing the same clips from last year at Botcon this year. It would be funny if somebody switches the footage as a joke and we see Shia Labeouf getting beat up on the big screen :lol:

To ensure my vote is completely pointless I will be voting for Skybite. Since Jazz is already a winner by default and none of these other guys are obscure enough for my taste.

Voting is now open for the 2012 Hall of Fame, click here to cast your vote!

Heroic AUTOBOTS JAZZ and GRIMLOCK, as well as the evil DECEPTICON SHOCKWAVE, will be the three robots honored with admission as chosen by Hasbro's TRANSFORMERS Hall of Fame internal panel of judges.

TRANSFORMERS fans now have the opportunity to vote for the fourth robot to join the 2012 class that will be revealed Saturday night, April 28, 2012 in Dallas, TX, at the annual TRANSFORMERS convention known as "BotCon" when the entire Class of 2012 will be officially inducted.
You may vote once per day from 3/9 until 3/21.


2012 Fan’s choice nominee: ARCEE

“I’m more than just a pretty face."


Image


ARCEE has gone through many changes during her career as an AUTOBOT. From pink and white colors to a sleeker dark blue, ARCEE is one of the few female TRANSFORMERS to stand the test of time. ARCEE has proven herself in battle time and time again - whether it is against UNICRON, SHOKARACT or even JAHIAXUS. ARCEE has lost many partners during the Great War, but her most painful memory is losing her comrade CLIFFJUMPER at the hands of STARSCREAM. Two people she could never do without, however is her human friend JACK DARBY, and her great-nephew, RATTRAP.



2012 Fan’s choice nominee: MEGATRON (BEAST WARS)

“You shall vote for me. Yesssssssss."

Image


Using the former leader of the DECEPTICONS as his namesake, MEGATRON orchestrated a plot to steal the Golden Disc, an ancient relic from the time of the AUTOBOT/DECEPTICON war. The disc led MEGATRON and his PREDACON crew to ancient Earth, where they, along with the pursuing MAXIMALS, reformatted into indigenous life-forms, instigating the BEAST WARS. After MEGATRON conquered the alien technology of the Vok, discovered the crashed Autobot Ark, nearly killed OPTIMUS PRIME, and gained control of the DECEPTICON warship NEMESIS, he was eventually defeated and returned to CYBERTRON by OPTIMUS PRIMAL. Once there, MEGATRON created an army of VEHICONS to help him conquer the planet. Unfortunately his beloved rubber ducky was left behind on primitive Earth.


2012 Fan’s choice nominee: WHEELJACK

“Statistically speaking I should be the winner."

Image


WHEELJACK has built everything from magnetic inducers to immobilizers to gyro-inhibitors, and even the occasional DINOBOT. While his inventions often indeed do what they are supposed to, they just as often blow up. WHEELJACK is also a member of the WRECKERS, a division of AUTOBOT warriors who don’t play by the rules and often take on missions that others can’t - or won’t. When called upon, WHEELJACK serves as the chief weapons officer and ship’s engineer for the team. His personal ship, the JACKHAMMER, served as his mobile headquarters in the wake of the great shutdown of CYBERTRON. WHEELJACK had made it his personal mission to cruise the stars in search of lost AUTOBOTS, but specifically for WRECKERS who have lost their way.


2012 Fan’s choice nominee: RODIMUS

“Everyone knows I’ve got the potential to win!"

Image

RODIMUS is young, naïve, headstrong, and daring when it comes to his own safety in the field. Willing to push himself to the limit in order to get the job done, RODIMUS is known for conceiving highly dangerous plans to achieve his objectives. Believing that no bot should ever be left behind, RODIMUS will even put his own spark on the line to keep this promise to all who serve under him. Despite his immaturity, RODIMUS is considered an inspirational figure to many of his fellow AUTOBOTS, and some have even come to call him RODIMUS PRIME. Unfortunately, one time RODIMUS got in OPTIMUS PRIME’S way with disastrous results.


2012 Fan’s choice nominee: SKY-BYTE

“Who's the baddest shark around? Who's the smartest shark in town? Sky-Byte, that's me! "

Image


A proud PREDACON to the core, SKY-BYTE lead his warriors into battle against AUTOBOTS or DECEPTICONS. His desire to be in MEGATRON's good favor drove him - and sometimes he got lost. His skills are legendary amongst the PREDACON ranks. Legendary because SKY-BYTE rarely completed a mission. He has a soft side for poetry - a skill no one else has - or wants. If it weren't for SCOURGE and the DECEPTICONS, SKY-BYTE would never have strayed from the PREDACON cause. In his jealous rage, SKY-BYTE looked to the enemy for acceptance - including KOJI and the AUTOBOTS. Perhaps that is why the AUTOBOTS allowed him to remain free on Earth after the final battle - where he currently roams the ocean attacking illegal fishing vessels.

'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.
