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:

It's not supposed to teach us anything new. It's the Hall of Fame. Acknowledging the most famous characters in the fandom. :roll:

TRANSFORMERS FAN BUILT BOT POLL 2012

Hooo boy...

I really wouldn't be surprised if this is the last year for the HoF. There's obviously lot less effort being put into it this time around.

Yeah, I spotted that.

"We have a page with a poll on it, let's just change the name!" type of move. :-?

"Now I enter these hallowed halls...a conqueror...yesss. Autobots and Decepticons, still frozen in emergency stasis, awaiting the moment, four million years hence, when they will awaken to start the Great War. Hmmm, a Great War, when the Autobots defeated the Decepticons, and thus their descendants, the Maximals, rule we Predacons. Archaic energon guzzlers! How dare they? Unwilling though I was to follow my namesake's instructions, it has all come down to this: the ultimate risk, for the ultimate prize. A day of reckoning with those who made us slaves!

So, we are now face to face, Optimus Prime. In one future, you awaken and become the great leader of the Autobots. But time shall take a different track, now. Computer! All available power to primary weapon! ... And now, Optimus Prime, in memory of the Decepticons...for the glory of the Predacons...for the Cybertron that is rightfully ours—and mine—to rule! ...I unleash the storm of vengeance...farewell!

Say goodbye to the universe, Maximals! The future has changed. Yessssss. The Autobots lose! Evil triumphs! And you...YOU NO LONGER EXIST!"

What are you talking about? We, the fans, voted on who we wanted in the Hall, and these are the top 5 (not 10; where did you hear "10"?) choices Hasbro totaled up for the final round. Now we're down to picking which one of these five we want to see inducted.

Systematically, it's just like how it was the last three years. No different.

Voting is now live on Hasbro's official Transformers website for this year's Hall of Fame candidates. Click here to vote!

The nominees chosen by you the fans 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.
