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

Image


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.


Image




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.




Image


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.


Image


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.


Image




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:

Image
"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.

Image

"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.


Image

"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.

Optimus was trying to make some toaster strudle, and Hot Rod in the way and tripped Prime, causing him to fall and jam his fingers in the toaster and die. COZ AUTOBOTS ARE WEAK!!!

He is one of the least liked characters in the TF universe, it isn't that funny a joke.

Also, who the heck writes these things? They're nigh-unreadable, especially with all the random CAPITALIZED NOUNS.


Hasbro writes them, and if you've ever bought a toy and read the bio, they have CAPITALIZED NOUNS through them.

Since when is Rattbat Arcee's "great-nephew"?


It is Rattrap, not Rattbat (Unless you're referring to Ratbat the cassette) and he has been since the episode "Transmutate", where he demanded to know what was going on in the name of his great-aunt Arcee, after being buried under a rockslide cuased by a overloaded stasis-pod

How could a Transformer even have a great-nephew?


I'll let the experts tell you, from every point of view http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Reproduction

And what does this even mean?
"Unfortunately, one time RODIMUS got in OPTIMUS PRIME’S way with disastrous results."


As I am not familier with the comic contunuity, I would not know.

However if they're refrencing the Hate Plague incident, when Rodimus got infected and (Along with almost every other lifeform) went on a rampage, Optimus was unable to convince him to hand over the matrix to cure everyone and had to take it by force

Nor do I, but I have little doubt BW Megs will win. The BW fans will rally all their votes behind him since he's the only BW character represented. The G1 vote will be split three ways and we've got Sky-Byte in there too.

Damn it! I have been pushing Swindle every year and you guys had to make him this years Erector! He actually deserves to be in the hall of fame, unlike Wheeljack or Arcee. I'd think Hot Rod would have been an auto-inductee though. My vote's going to Sky-Byte.

Okay, looking at Arcee's bio, it's clear that Hasbro simply doesn't care anymore. They make no attempts to have her bio make any lick of sense, and so they just did whatever they wanted and made her bio one big clustermuck of nonsense. :BOOM:

Wheeljack's and Rodimus' bios aren't as bad, but they're borderlining.

Megs and Sky-Byte at least were given decency in their bios, but they put the wrong Sky-Byte in the pic. That bio is clearly about RiD Sky-byte, while pictured is Wings Universe (G1) Sky-Byte, who never underwent any of the events described in that bio.

Godzillabot Primal wrote:How are we supposed to vote? their pages have no buttons
The voting has not started yet.

Aluus wrote:So Sky-byte is this year's Erector?
No, Sky-Byte is as legitimate a choice as Waspinator was. He was a lovable character.

TheForgottenTaxi wrote:Can one of the people pushing this Sky-Byte thing please explain the joke to the rest of us?
I'm not pushing for him (as much as I am for Megs), but I will explain it. First off, it's no joke. Of all the characters to appear in the Robots in Disguise cartoon, Sky-byte became a fan favorite. He was a very likeable character, as he was hilarious and had a charming personality. He's another comic relief character like Waspinator, except with a little more of his head screwed on right. And thus, those who took a liking to him voted for him.

TheForgottenTaxi wrote:(Also, who the heck writes these things? They're nigh-unreadable, especially with all the random CAPITALIZED NOUNS.
Um, EVERY single English-language Transformers bio has been written like that since 1984. They ALWAYS capitalize the important copyrighted/trademarked names and terms to show that they own them. It's what they do and have done for the past 25+ years.

TheForgottenTaxi wrote:Since when is Rattbat Arcee's "great-nephew"? How could a Transformer even have a great-nephew?
Look again. it said "Rattrap", not "Ratbat".

In the Transmutate episode of Beast Wars, Rattrap exclaimed, "What in the name of my Great Aunt Arcee is going on here?!" It was meant to be just an in-joke to the fact that Susan Blu voiced Transmutate, but then a Fun Pub comic that took place post-Beast Machines had Botcon 2001 Arcee and BM Rattrap run into each other and have an awkward moment, as another joke reference to that line of his from before. Here, though, it's... not a joke. :-|

Go watch the 1986 The Transformers: The Movie. :roll:

Hell yeah Rodimus! wait what the hells with the bio? It sounds like its for hotrod but just barely and since this is Rodimus(look at the picture) and not HotRod wheres the fact that he took down unicron, united cybertron, and kicked Galvatron ass? Damn you hasbro, start getting people who know the franchise to do this kind of stuff. None the less i am glad to see HotRod get some recognition and hope he wins. And im auprised Skybite got in, i was going to list him but we already got Waspinator and we dont need another comic relief character right now. Arcees probably going to win but im pulling for HotRod/Rodimus, surprising i know.

Hello? They lost the name "Hot Rod" years ago. That's why they call him "Rodimus" now. This isn't "Rodimus Prime", it's "Rodimus".

"Hot Rod" = "Rodimus"

"Rodimus Prime" = "Rodimus Prime"

Plus, it's not like they don't bruingup the guy's Prime form in the bio. But they modeled the bio after his Hot Rod self. They just don't own that name anymore and so cannot use it. That's why they used "Rodimus" without the "Prime" part.

Posted by Delicon on March 8th, 2012 @ 2:06pm CST
Call me paranoid, but I kinda wonder if FunPub didn't have a little hand in Sky-Byte making it in, as he's one of the uber-fringe characters they have worked into their fiction.

Could also explain why Swindle DIDN'T make it...

Wow! No love for Sky-byte, huh? :(
I'll have you guys know I'm pretty fond of him myself, and I know several others who are too. I wasn't aware the other sites voted him enough to get him in though. How many votes did he have on seib.com? like 5? :/ o well, he's in for the running now. I'll probably still go Megs, but had I known there was a movement for sky-byte I might have joined in for that. Maybe I'll alternate voting for these two.... hmmm.

As for the others, especially not enthused about them thanks to the bios. Me no likey this "all one continuity" idea. X(

Rodimus would probably be my #3 though. I'm not fond of him as prime, but I love Hot Rod. :)

Yes, Rodimus gets in! :grin: Sky-byte? Really? :BANG_HEAD: WJ is okay, and Arcce's bio didn't make any sense at all :BOOM: . BW Megs is alright :twisted: . But I will go 4 Rodimus all the way. He destroyed Unicron, mopped the floor with Galvatron, and reunited Cybertron. All in one day. It don't get much better than that. :BOWDOWN:

OK G1 FANS LISTEN UP!!! As I see it now this will probably end up with Wheeljack and Rodimus splitting the vote we HAVE to pick one to get behind or another BW character will sneak in. I Rodimus should go in since he was a Prime but I'll go however you want. Just don't tell Beast Wars fans what's going on.

I think G1 fans have too much integritiy to comprimise the choice they truely believe in simply for the sake of competing in the HOF. But if I really had to choose someone beside Arcee, I choose Wheeljack.
And Rodimus got to do all that crazy stuff simply because the Matrix chose him. He might have fought through a long journey, but he didn't win anything solely on his own power. He had help. JUST SAYING.

He did look badass fighting the sharkticons tho.

Why is Scorponok never a finalist? :???:

Of these though, my vote would go to Sky-Byte, followed by... um... maybe Rodimus, then Megs, Wheeljack, and finally Arcee. I never really liked Arcee until Prime. And either way, these are all pretty good choices and would be a toss up to me.

I'd be down with Scorponok being inducted, but man would it be a bitch to see them splice videos of him with bay-verse scorponok. It would be like... wooo power, all that might.. and then scenes of basically a pet to bigger Decepticons.
Re: Transformers Hall of Fame 2012 Finalists Anounced! (1356328)
Posted by Megazarak on March 8th, 2012 @ 8:45pm CST
That's ok, they can just induct G1 and Energon Scorponok. BW characters are being split from the regular cast (see Megatron) I assume because their personalities and what not differ greatly for the most part compared to their namesakes, so BW Scorp wouldn't have to be included. And movie Scoroponok isn't even close to his previous incarnations, so he probably wouldn't be a part of the "green and purple Scorponok" induction, had there been, or will be one.

Routine: Last years losers are this years inductees (except Erector)

Stupid: Skybyte

Question: Why doesnt Grimlock just get an automatic induction like Prime and Bumblebee got ? He is up there probally in the top 10 favorites of all time.

Edit: just realized Grimlocks getting inducted. Like I said before, Last years losers are this years inductees. Of course we will be seeing the same clips from last year at Botcon this year. It would be funny if somebody switches the footage as a joke and we see Shia Labeouf getting beat up on the big screen :lol:

Voting is now open for the 2012 Hall of Fame, click here to cast your vote!

Heroic AUTOBOTS JAZZ and GRIMLOCK, as well as the evil DECEPTICON SHOCKWAVE, will be the three robots honored with admission as chosen by Hasbro's TRANSFORMERS Hall of Fame internal panel of judges.

TRANSFORMERS fans now have the opportunity to vote for the fourth robot to join the 2012 class that will be revealed Saturday night, April 28, 2012 in Dallas, TX, at the annual TRANSFORMERS convention known as "BotCon" when the entire Class of 2012 will be officially inducted.
You may vote once per day from 3/9 until 3/21.


2012 Fan’s choice nominee: ARCEE

“I’m more than just a pretty face."


Image


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."

Image


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."

Image


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!”

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, 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! ”

Image


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.

I voted Wheeljack. Who doesn't love a mad scientist that's actually one of the good guys for once?
