Posted on Hasbro's are the five Fan's Choice Finalist for the Botcon 2012 Transformers Hall of Fame! They are:


2012 Fan’s choice nominee: ARCEE

“I’m more than just a pretty face."

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."

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."

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!”

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! ”

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.

One of the above listed characters will be chosen to join the 3 HoF inductees already selected:

"Me GRIMLOCK king!

GRIMLOCK fought his way through the gladiatorial pits underneath Kaon to become one of the greatest warriors on CYBERTRON. Having joined the AUTOBOTS early on during the Great War, GRIMLOCK made it clear he never trusted OPTIMUS PRIME to properly lead the AUTOBOTS. Due to his shock and awe approach to combat, GRIMLOCK is not regarded as a great military leader. However, he has fought and survived through enough battles to earn top ranking position among the AUTOBOTS. Having struck out on his own, GRIMLOCK eventually found himself leader of the DINOBOTS, a special operations strike force unit that can power through most barricades and DECEPTICON strongholds. During a battle with the DECEPTICON SCORPONOK, GRIMLOCK¹s vocal processors were damaged, leading to his awkward and distinct way of speaking. If GRIMLOCK has a weakness, it is his larger-than-Prime ego and his lack of patience.


"I do everything with style!"

Before OPTIMUS PRIME became leader of the AUTOBOTS, he was known as Orion Pax and AUTOBOT JAZZ was his closest friend. Respected by his fellow AUTOBOTS for always taking the most dangerous missions in the war against the DECEPTICONS, AUTOBOT JAZZ became one of the best lieutenants for OPTIMUS PRIME. Always selecting a fast and stylish alt mode that reflects his cool and competent demeanor, and having studied the ways of the Cyber-Ninja, AUTOBOT JAZZ always takes in the situation before making any decisions. Once on Earth, AUTOBOT JAZZ quickly became enthralled with its many different cultures. Fascinated by Earth¹s music, AUTOBOT JAZZ seamlessly picked up human slang, which he often uses to relieve tension amongst the ranks.


"Logically, I have been selected for his honor."

SHOCKWAVE has always based his actions on the most logical choices. Having joined MEGATRON during the early days of the Great War, SHOCKWAVE believed MEGATRON would quickly crush the High Council and bring about a new order to CYBERTRON. AUTOBOTS and DECEPTICONS everywhere fear SHOCKWAVE for his unethical experimentations. SHOCKWAVE believes that through his work, he will discover a better form of existence for CYBERTRONIANS everywhere and sacrifices must be made to accomplish this. To further his goal of reformatting the species, SHOCKWAVE stayed behind to lead the DECEPTICON forces on CYBERTRON during the Great Exodus. On the surface, SHOCKWAVE is unquestionably loyal to MEGATRON, however this only masks his true intentions of ruling all over all sentient beings in the universe.

Thank you for bringing your concern to our attention and for giving Hasbro the opportunity to respond to a matter that impacts its G.I. Joe and Transformers brands. Please know we take all consumer concerns very seriously and are in regular contact with Fun Publications (our licensee) about the possibility of a breach in security to their online purchasing system for the G.I.

Fun Publications is also taking this matter very seriously and is diligently working at identifying any problems, the number of customers affected and ways to ensure it does not happen to any more customers. Hasbro wants consumers to have a positive experience at all touch points for its brands, including transactions with its licensees. As such, we are confident that Fun Publications has detailed instructions and pertinent information available for those consumers who believe they may have been targeted by credit theft via their portals.

Based on our extensive conversations with the Fun Publications team Hasbro wants to convey the following to the fan communities:

Fun Publications has assured us that they are taking necessary measures to curb additional issues, and they are working with third party experts to identify the problem. They anticipate knowing and communicating the cause of the breach as soon as possible to those affected.

-- They believe that the number of customers affected is low relative to the volume of sales transactions made.

-- However, if you believe fraudulent charges have been made to your credit card after making a purchase with any portals for the G.I.

Earlier today, I took a few extra measures to help protect myself in a world where it's us against the stupidity (or naivety) of others and cyber crime. In light of the extremely unfortunate and dire situation with Fun Publications' Transformers Collectors' Club, it is very important that all of you take some extra pre-cautions with your accounts online. In addition to our earlier suggestions that you cancel your current card numbers and change all of your account passwords that share the same password that you used at Transformers Collectors' Club, I wanted to inform all of you, as a community service type thing, so that all of you can help protect yourself online. If you don't use Paypal and if you also don't use Gmail or Google Apps, then this topic does NOT apply to you. If you do use Paypal, Gmail or Google Apps, then please continue reading.


If you use Paypal, it's time to upgrade your account with this free feature that Paypal offers. It's called "Paypal Security Key". The PayPal Security Key creates random temporary security codes that help safeguard your PayPal account when you log in. It comes in 2 types, each with different advantages:

  • Security key: You carry this small credit-card sized device with you. It creates a unique security code on the go.
  • Mobile phone security key: You can sign up to get security codes sent by text message to your mobile phone. (recommended)


If you use Gmail or Google Apps (this includes all staff members with official email addresses), you should enable Google's two-step authentication process for your account(s). 2-step verification drastically reduces the chances of having the personal information in your Google account stolen by someone else. Why? Because hackers would have to not only get your password and your username, they'd have to get a hold of your phone. For further information about Google's 2-step verification, please click here.

If you have any additional tips that you would like to share with the rest of the community, please feel free to post your suggestions in this topic on our forums.

Here is another update from the Transformers Collectors' Club run by Fun Publications. Please read this information if you have been a member of the Club in the past few years or if you have ever used a credit card with their organization.

Transformers Collectors' Club wrote:As we continue to work on our systems, you will see some of our services go offline and then come back, so please be patient as we preserve data and clone servers and websites.

We are also taking this opportunity to remove all non-essential services from our ecomerce server. So in the short term in the next day or so, the club forums will be discontinued. It will be several days until we are ready to bring them back under an entierly new piece of software. I know alot of you have been asking for this so, we have decided to replace several of our systems with new packages. This means that you will not have access to the forum for a while at all. We do plan to make the old forum viewable (no posts) in the future.

Since we do not know exactly what data was taken, we are recommending that if your have used common logins or passwords with our system and any other system that your change your passwords in those systems immidiately (especially any financial sysstems)! We will be resetting all of the passwords in our system very soon. Please don't delay in changing your passwords in other locations.

In addition, we have found a few recent aticles concerning security issues with other vendors. If you use these services, these issues could possibly impact you. Please read the attached links: ... 68593.html? ... redit.html

Thanks for your support in this difficult time. We will continue to work with our vendors to correct the issues and we apologize for any inconvenience this has caused any of our members.

Brian Savage


If you have not cancelled your credit or debit cards that you have used in the past, you MUST cancel those numbers. It's a very simple process. You just need to call the phone number on the back of your card, explain what happened, and your bank or credit card company will send you a new card which you should received in 7 to 10 business days or sooner (I received one of mine in 4 business days). You MUST do this. It is inevitable that failure to do this will only result in your card being used for fraudulent purposes. Do NOT wait for you to get hit. The only way you can protect yourself is by cancelling your current card numbers and having new cards sent to you.

It is also strongly recommended that you immediately change your passwords if you use your password on on any other website or banking website. The passwords in their database are not encrypted and it should be assumed at this point that all of our account information was taken along with our payment information.

David Kaye and Garry Chalk Officially Confirmed as BotCon 2012 Guests

BotCon has officially confirmed David Kaye and Garry Chalk as special guest for this year's convention. The cat was let out the bag a little early when Kaye left a message on Chalk's facebook page that mentioned seeing him in Dallas in April.


Garry and David will be on hand all weekend, taking part in fan panels, autograph sessions and the meet and greet for Golden Ticket holders. You won't want to miss meeting these two Transformers legends!

Gemini Award winning GARRY CHALK has been a professional actor for 33 years. He has appeared in over a hundred movies and television shows, among them Cold Squad (6 years), Stargate SG1 (several seasons), The Outer Limits (several guest appearances), and many others. He is most recently appearing in AMC'S monster hit The Killing, which has been renewed for another season. In addition, he recently filmed an episode of the TV series, Psych.

Born in Southampton England, Chalk came to Canada at a very early age and found that he enjoyed performing. His first television appearance was in an episode of Saturday Kids Party with Ron Morriere as a singer in a Kiwanis boys choir when he was 12 years old. Since then, he has appeared in many feature films like The Watchmen, Deck the Halls, The Fly II, Battle in Seattle, and Sea Wolfe with Charles Bronson.

His voice over work in animation spans 30 years and over a thousand episodes of cartoons. You can hear his work on Beast Wars (Optimus Primal), Transformers: Armada, Energon and Cybertron (Optimus Prime), My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic (Fido the Diamond Dog), G.I. Joe, Sonic the Hedgehog, Reboot, and many, many more. Most recently, he starred as Sky Marshall Wade in the new hit series, Voltron Force.

Mr. Chalk continues to work in all areas of the entertainment world, from film, television, animation to theater.

For the past few years, Chalk has resumed his music career and performs at various venues in his hometown of Vancouver, Canada as a singer, guitarist, and piano player. But of all his creative pursuits, his greatest love is cartoons, and he says he will do voices in cartoons until the day he dies.

Garry thoroughly enjoys attending conventions and meeting the fans. He will often offer a musical performance at the conventions he attends, to the great pleasure of the attendees.

DAVID KAYE’S voice over career began with General Hawk in the DIC animation series, G.I. Joe in 1989. Working as an on air talent for radio station CKLG (LG73) quickly became less interesting as both on camera and behind the mic roles started taking up more time. Over the next decade and a half, David’s on camera burgeoned along with his voice career. On camera opportunities came in the form of guest roles on numerous TV series and movies such as the X-Files, Battlestar Galactica and Happy Gilmore with Adam Sandler.

Also during this time, David was being cast in some of the first, of what soon would be hundreds of, animation shows and video games. So many, in fact, this now became the main focus of his career and he’s never looked back.

David’s biggest moment was when he was cast as Megatron in 1996, in the hugely popular series Beast Wars (“Beasties” in Canada) that would go on to run for three seasons of “the most fun you could ever have!” says David. Thus began an almost twenty year relationship with the “Transformers” franchise, from his role as the “Decepticon” Megatron from the Armada series all the way up to 2007, when David “crossed over” to become the only actor in the history of the franchise to play the lead villain AND the lead hero when he was cast as Optimus Prime for Cartoon Network’s “Transformers: Animated.”

After twenty-plus years AWAY from the part that started it all, David found himself returning to the franchise where it all began… G.I. Joe! In the Renegades series, he could be heard as Scarlett’s father, and he also introduced every episode as the expo voice during the opening titles!

As the work keeps coming in, David’s voice can be heard in Insomniac’s “Ratchet & Clank” video game series as the loveable robot Clank. He's also been featured in “Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions? as “Mysterio,” “Nick Fury? and “Captain America” in “Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2,” “Missing Link? in “Monsters vs Aliens,” the game and many more.

David is now working on another highly popular series “Ben 10” as the lead villain, as well as working with the great JG Quintel on “Flap Jack” and “The Regular Show.”

With on-going commitments for movie trailers, network promos for ABC, Fox, CW and a host of radio and television affiliates and a lot of commercial work, the days get a little tight from time to time. So much so that he even has a unit that he can use to record from his car. “Don’t worry, I actually have to pull over,” he says.

The projects continue to line up and unfortunately, the days don’t get any longer. David says “You won’t ever hear me complain, though. I’m working with the coolest people on the planet and deeply love what I do… I have though put in a request in for a 28 hour day!”

We wanted to give you the latest update on the current procedure for membership renewals and NEW memberships.

Please note that the March 16th deadline is still a hard deadline (in house), so please make sure any mail is in the postal system by March 9th. If we could move the date we would, but that is not an option as these have to be processed due to existing schedules.

Earlier this morning, I received an answer back from Pete at the Transformers Collectors' Club who clarified my questions about the "mix-up" with the gun/weapon accessories included with Shattered Glass Drift. Here's what he had to say:

This appears to be a running issue with the factory. Since the guns are not actually suppose to come with the Drift mold (at retail) it looks like many toys, if not all, just received whichever two guns were selected when they were packed out. I understand that it is a technicality, but all we said was he would come with two guns. While we would have thought they would have come with a left and right gun, the factory did not seem to think it was necessary, and these are how these were packed out...

So, to clarify, we are not changing how the toy was intended. The toy was intended to have two swords which can be stored in the doors and two additional guns included as additional accessories, and ones that were never meant to come with this mold.

All that said, after all the product is shipped out and all figure defects (missing arms, broken pieces on the figure) are addressed, we may be able to come back to this depending on how many issues are out there. The easiest solution may be for people to bring to BotCon and exchange there. Perhaps we designate a Drift gun swap at the info booth.

For now though, we can't take any exchanges...
