There is more to Transformers than movies, cartoons, comics and toys. Discuss anything else Transformers here.

You spoke and Hasbro listened. The fan's choice finalists for the Transformers Hall of Fame 2013 have been announced. As you can see, the list matches quite nicely with what Seibertron.com readers chose. We matched 4 out of 5. Without further ado, the finalists are:

Arcee

Image

An accomplished, street smart and powerful fighter with little patience for those who don't know their way around a battlefield, ARCEE may be the most skilled fighter among the AUTOBOTS on Earth. She works constantly to keep her edge, knowing that one mistake could cost her and her teammates everything. Her blasters might not pack the punch of the bigger AUTOBOTS, but her incredible fighting skill more than makes up for anything she lacks in firepower.


Beast Wars Megatron

Image

An insane, hyper-intelligent criminal mastermind who led a group of renegade PREDACONS to Earth in search of the Energon they would need to conquer CYBERTRON, MEGATRON became so much more than a petty felon. When the search led to the discovery of alien artifacts, MEGATRON launched an assault on Time itself, seeking to change history to his benefit. He nearly destroyed CYBERTRON in his mad quest to exterminate the TRANSFORMERS, and was stopped only when OPTIMUS PRIMAL brought him down. He returned, determined to have his vengeance, and his battle with the MAXIMAL leader raged across the multiverse!


Prowl

Image

DECEPTICONS, beware, because PROWL is one tough AUTOBOT out to bring law and order to his enemies! He's big trouble whether he's in robot mode or police car mode. If ordinary TRANSFORMERS strength won't get the job done, he's got a heavy weapon in his Justice Hammer! The strategic genus is always cool under pressure, especially when he's hot on the trail of an enemy target.


Rodimus-Hot Rod

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. He would officially become their commander when chosen by the Matrix of Leadership, forging a new legacy as RODIMUS PRIME.


Ultra Magnus

Image

As the commander of the most elite AUTOBOT special forces unit ever assembled, you'd expect ULTRA MAGNUS to be just about one of the most unstoppable warriors this side of the galactic core. You’d be right. If there is any AUTOBOT the DECEPTICONS fear as much as OPTIMUS PRIME, it is ULTRA MAGNUS. His battle hammer has crushed chassis from one side of the galaxy to the other. No battlefield on which his armored feet have stepped has ever been yielded to the DECEPTICONS.

People need to quit being butt hurt that the Bay movies are not G1. That's like saying you hate Transformers Prime because it's nothing like Armada.

Oh cool, Hot-Rod/imus made it in! Given he seems to be the TF equivalent of Marmite I was never sure he'd make it :lol:

Although, even though he is one of my all-time faves, I can't help but hope Beast Megatron wins instead. Hot-Rod is my favorite character, but I feel whilst he had an impact on TF history (like the events of the movie or not)Beast Megatron's impact on TF history seems to have a lot more positive impact on the fans (bar the end of Beast machines perhaps?)
Basically I'm saying Hot-Rod getting in would feel more like he was there because the history books say he should be.

Oh wait...do 2 bots make it in? :HEADHURTS: Long pointless post is pointless.

Ulta Magnus should get in cause he has been in practically ever cartoon series and its not his fault he almost never gets his own toy mould. He is the ultimate rules and regulations guy. Where would we be without some Order among the Kaos. Hail Ultra Magnus.

This is a great top 5. I don't mind whoever wins.

I hope Magnus gets it though! He deserves a lot more love.

Kaos...

...missed it by that much...

So, is it because Ultra Magnus is always in Control of the situation that he should get the vote?

At this very moment, billions of fanboys are voting for Ultra Magnus...would you believe it? Billions!...

...would you believe millions?...

Old art and toy bios instead of new art and loads of cross-continuity references? That's no fun.

The only one I really care about here is Megatron. Which probably means I need to read certain comics.
... I don't suppose Prowl includes Animated Prowl? *sigh* If only these were the fun kind of bios, then I'd know.

Yeah, these bios are all recycled from preexisting sources:
  • Arcee - a mishmash of her Cyberverse Legion, PRID Deluxe, and NYCC exclusive bios
  • Beast Wars Megatron - his BW 10th Anniversary bio, with some slight modifications
  • Prowl - the marketing copy bio for his Cyberverse Legion toy
  • Rodimus-Hot Rod - His bio from last year's Hall of Fame, only with the last sentence changed.
  • Ultra Magnus - a mishmash of his Cyberverse Commander and PRID Voyager bios
If you've read Exodus, wanna read the War For Cybertron comic? PM me.

Weapon: Neptune Sword
Being a wannable "expert" of Hall of Fames (I am least an upgrade from some of awful sport "journalists" of recent vintage, I hope), all of these characters are in. It is just a matter of when. In 10 years, all of them will be in.

The only one that will any problems with induction will Hot Rod, who had the ultimate Bill Buckner moment in TF history.

My predictions (not my vote, just pure prognostication)

Arcee (shoo-in) and at least two out of following three (BW Megatron, Ultra Magnus, and Prowl) and all three will be in by 2014.

The best question imho is when will Hot Rod/Rodimus get in? If not this year, then his may a bridesmaid on the ballot for a while.

In my opinion BW Megatron should be top of this list. He has probably the most accomplishments out of everyone here. 1. Found the gold discs. 2 discovered the discs powers. 3 Found the dormant autobot arc. 4. Combined his spark with G1 Megatron 5. Found the Nemises 6. Found out a way to control Rampage. 7. WON THE BEAST WARS!!

I'm kind of disappointed with the choices... :BANG_HEAD: It's the top 10 characters, anyway. Why not add some minor characters? More BW guys? Some combaticons?

I feel like this poll doesn't really reveal anything we don't already know about TF and who is popular. :roll:
