Transformers Loses 2017 National Toys Hall of Fame Entry to Paper Plane, Clue, Wiffle Ball

Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
Remember how Transformers has been nominated, once again, for the National Toys Hall of Fame? Well, once again in 2017, the transforming robot franchise that has been around since at least the 80s has not made it into confirmation - this year, losing to paper airplanes, Clue (another Hasbro property, in case anyone is keeping tabs) and the Wiffle Ball. We've reported a sizeable extract of the full USA Today piece below, but you can read the whole article with more images and an explanation of the winners right here!

Maybe next year Transformers will have a chance? Or will we see the predictions made in our discussion come true?

This just in: Next year's list of nominations has been leaked. It will include Rainbow Brite, dirt, a puddle, Zoids, a stick and a hoop, just a stick, just a hoop, your parent's shoes you'd try on when you were little, mud, a piece of blank printer paper, a gentle breeze, aaaaand Transformers. Again.


ROCHESTER, N.Y. — The National Toy Hall of Fame Class of 2017 are paper airplanes, the board game Clue and the Wiffle Ball.

The new group of toys were inducted into the National Toy Hall of Fame in New York and now have a permanent place alongside previous honorees including the dollhouse, jump rope and Radio Flyer wagon.

The hall located inside The Strong museum in Rochester announced the Class of 2017 Thursday morning.

The whodunit game Clue, where players also must name the crime scene and murder weapon, continues to sell millions of copies each year since being patented by a British couple during World War II. Clue is produced by Parker Brothers.

"Clue has also had its own movie, been featured in numerous television shows and books and remains an icon of pop culture," said curator Nicolas Ricketts, who added the game has spun off travel, junior and advanced versions, as well as collectors and themed editions.

The annual inductees are chosen on the advice of historians and educators following a process that begins with nominations from the public. To make the hall of fame, toys must have inspired creative play across generations. Historic and modern versions of the winners are displayed in the hall.

This year’s finalists were: the board games Risk and Clue, the Magic 8 Ball, Matchbox cars, My Little Pony, the paper airplane, PEZ candy dispenser, play food, sand, Transformers, the card game Uno and Wiffle ball.

A paper plane is not a damn toy. It is origami. Only manufactured items should be included in the toy hall of fame. Whats next? The mud pie? This hall of fame is a joke. F**k em...

One of the finalists this year was sand, so you're close.
Don't get butthurt when you get called out for expressing closed/small/narrow minded opinions. Educate yourself and form a better opinion.


Yyyeeeeeeeeep

I did it like THIS, I did it like THAT...

played lots of Wiffleball myself as a kid, but sorry Beastie Boys Paul Revere always gets stuck in my head when I read about it...

Yeah at this point the "Toy" hall of fame is about as silly and pointless as any other.
