As much as I love Jazz and Grimlock, the two greatest examples of attitude in the TF universe if ever there were any, I had to go with Erector. I can't help but root for the underdog and being someone who is in the building industry I tend to gravitate towards characters that relate to construction.

"Wait, what is this? Why am I here?"

Once a member of the evil CONSTRUCTICONS, AUTOBOT ERECTOR was scrapped from the team in favor of the DECEPTICON HOOK, because he wasn’t green. Dejected, AUTOBOT ERECTOR had no choice but to join the AUTOBOTS and did so at the battle of Tyger Pax. There he saved the day by distracting enemy fire with his body allowing for OPTIMUS PRIME and the AUTOBOTS to escape the battlefield. AUTOBOT ERECTOR is a true creative genius and now hailed as the top construction engineer for the AUTOBOTS, having designed such marvels as the Armada Laserbeak Surveillance System and the Real Gear Quick Action Weaponry. AUTOBOT ERECTOR is favored by many AUTOBOTS for representing a lost generation of TRANSFORMERS who prove you don’t need to famous to loved by all.


That is hilarious. I'm glad to see that Hasbro can take a joke, and make it even better and be fine with it.

Still, my money is for Waspinator I think. I think you are wasting your votes on Grimlock and Shockwave because they'd of eventually been in the Hall of Fame anyways. It's just a matter of time. Waspinator on the other hand deserves it, but Hasbro'd never do it on their own.

I agree with this. Shockwave, Rodimus, Jazz, and Grimlock are all no-brainers for future HoF inductees. Characters like Waspinator and Erector only get this shot once most likely (though I think Waspinator would eventually be on Hasbro's list, just might take 10 years or so).

On that note, time to finish up Erector's gallery!

Pretty much. Grimlock, Shockwave, Jazz and Soundwave were all in it last year voting (and got beat by Dinobot).

I believe it was Sabrblade who first said it, but it's up to us fans to make sure the non-G1 specific characters get recognized as well. We can depend on Hasbro to pick the legacy characters.

Why does Jazz keep getting played? I mean he is the second in command for corns sake. Add in the fact that that Megatron makes a corny joke before ripping him in half makes things worse. The only reason Bumblebee made it in the initial class over Jazz was because he is popular with kids. Jazz has always been my favorite cartoon character and I would be quite disapointed if Erector made it over him. It was bad enough that Dinobot made it over him in the first ceremony. Rant over!

Shockwave. It is only logical to vote for him.
I may not be a Decepticon, but my neutral logic-circuits point towards the logical mastermind that is SHOCKBLAST!

Non-G1 Waspinator, or obscure hilariously named Erector. Tough choice.


I wish we could get more than one in every year (why don't we indoctrine both a 'Con and a 'Bot/Maximal), and/or Hasbro auto-include a few of the more obvious ones. For celebrating the diversity of TFs, it seems like a waste for A-listers like Soundwave and Grimlock to not only not be in the Hall of Fame, but also clog up the entries year after year (at least one of those two WILL be running again next year).

Oh man.....

I have to vote for Erector. It's not even fair.

Even during my non collecting years Erector was always out and on display. He is simply a great little guy, and while he may be on the list as a joke, My vote will be completely serious.

With the exception of Waspy, the other three are a lock for the HOF, and all of them are guaranteed a spot in the next couple years, so yhea, they'll be ok. And Waspy will keep having a shot until he's in as well.

It's only logical that it has to be a Decepticon/Predacon. And since we had Dinobot last year, I'd say my vote would have to be on the Master of Self-Disaster, Waspinator. Although my intelligence screams Shockwave, as we both share the same principles, It just seems Waspinatior would be the most logical choice to me, as he's basically been the most bullied-around-Decepticon/Predacon/Vehicon ever. Time to give Wazzzzzpinator his zzzzzzzpecial treatment! 8-} 8-} 8-}
