ABCNews wrote:The Fisher-Price Little People and Care Bears will square off against Rock 'Em Sock 'Em Robots and Transformers for a place in the National Toy Hall of Fame.
Whether any or all make it will be announced Nov. 10.
Twelve finalists for the Class of 2016 were revealed Tuesday by the hall at The Strong museum in Rochester, New York.
Also making the list: Nerf, the board game Clue, card game Uno, pinball, the swing, Dungeons & Dragons and coloring books.
Rounding out the list is bubble wrap, which could join the cardboard box and stick among unconventional honorees.
To be recognized by the hall, toys must have lasted across generations, influenced the way toys are designed or played with, and fostered learning or creativity through play.
We are happy to welcome Jason Marnocha to TFcon Chicago 2016. Known online by the handle of LordJazor, Transformers fans now know him as the voice of Megatron in Machinima’s Transformers: Combiner Wars animated web series.

We are extremely proud and very happy to be able to announce that RetCon's first guest of honour will be none other than the one and only Nick Roche!
Having been a part of the IDW universe since the early years and written, co-written and illustrated such smash hits as Last Stand of the Wreckers and Sins of the Wreckers, he surely needs no further presentation.
Nick will be on site for RetCon both for the friday pre-hang-out and all of the main convention day.
