As we get ready to close out the year, the Transformers Hall of Fame is ready to induct a few new members from 2019!

The 2019 Hall of Fame vote is now online, and you can find that vote HERE. The vote contains 2 different voting areas, one for a new fictional character to join the Hall of Fame Lineup, the other to induct a Hasbro Transformers figure from this year into the Hall of Fame. Don't worry, this vote is open to anyone and is not exclusive to social media sites, allowing anyone with an internet connection to vote.

This year, the vote is a little strange, with only 1984 cartoon cast members being on the vote. Amusingly, this vote does include little known character Hauler, who showed up only briefly in the cartoon but has become a fan favorite with a cult following.

Head on over to the vote, and let us know below who you voted to go into the Hall of Fame!

This vote is a bunch of bullshit.

1984 cast members only for characters? Only WFC figures, no Studio Series or anything?

This vote can bugger off. Guess Hasbro is tired of Beast Wars continually proving itself to be the fan favorite

Well...it is the 35th anniversary of G1 which makes the cartoon vote legit and it’s siege because it also has ties to G1 and there were figures that also celebrated the 35th. So that’s why.

that may be why, but it is a weak ass why. They didn't do something like this for the 30th anniversary of G1, didn't do it for the 20th anniversary of Beast Wars, and I'm willing to get they won't for the 20th anniversary for Armada. and the 35th is a weird one anyway.

either way, it's weak and it's sad. Hasbro is running the vote directly this year, and it shows where their priorities are.

They didn’t do it themselves because funpub and botcon so they never had to. They’re giving all this stuff a try. Jesus don’t seem ya throwing a fit over the fact that bot bots and Cyberverse weren’t included.

And it’s not weak or sad. It’s exactly how it is because those two things tie into what’s big this years. Build your bridge and get over it baby.

Hard to do a proper "Hall of Fame" when only 1 year is represented. Plus there was a Studio Series line in addition to the above, but a main generations line is what only counts.

And for gosh sakes, stop being an asshole when people are unhappy. I'm not the only one who sees an issue with the very limited range of the vote. Having a criticism is not being childish.

Theres no reason you can’t act your age and be an adult and just be okay that you don’t always get what you want. Sorry hasbro didn’t reach out to the grown adults who play with toys and ask specifically what they want. Shame on them for them for essentially wanting to do something entertaining and have a morale booster and involve the communities.

Wider range, that is all that is asked. Of many too.

also, while I do appreciate community outreaches, many of which I have been involved with, but only grown adults primarily watched the 1984 season 1 cartoon. Kinda cuts out a lot of others there.

Hi! Couple of things:

Dmax is very wrong. This vote is not bullshit. This vote is complete and utter horseshit. Look, I'm a ride or die G1 guy, but this is ridiculous. There is so much more to the brand than one line. This is Hasbro saying they can't be bothered to step out of the small box they've made, so choose one of the preselected items, thank you very much.

**** this vote.

Let's all vote the uber-obscure Hauler and see what Hasbro's reaction is.

As for the toy vote, Hot Shot's the most interesting since he's the only non-G1 character (Galaxy Upgrade OP is a non-G1 design being used as a new body upgrade for G1 Optimus).

I went for Hauler because, hey, if we have to vote for nobodies, might as well vote for the biggest nobody who's least likely to ever again get any mainstream attention.

Plus, I like his tragic backstory as a former Constructicon betrayed by his best friends and comrades when they got turned evil and then destroyed the very city that he and they had worked together to build, with Hauler joining the Autobots as the sole remaining good Constructicon, working hard to redeem the good name of his team.

Or, in the immortal words sung by Tim "The Toolman" Taylor and Al Borland:

♪ He gets no thanks, and that ain't right!
He's the Unsung Hero of the Job Site! ♪

Hoo-hooo. I have never seen people get so mad about action figures before. I mean, voice your opinions, that's what we're here for, but can you cut out the swearing at least? I think this is supposed to be a family safe website. You're an admin, you should know better.

Now then, I think Cog deserves a vote.

This poll is restrictive as hell and is obviously more indicative of who Hasbro thinks should be put on a podium rather than what the fans choose, but is this annual award really worth getting this riled up over?
Don't get me wrong, I fully understand being super passionate about topics that everyone else finds trivial, but the only times I ever see or hear about this fan poll is when it comes back around again for the yearly voting.

Yeah as if I needed more **** ing proof Hasbro is salty and hate anything not G1...

The level of in-group biases and pre-chosen winners make Hollywood's own circlejerk more than a little positively tame by comparison.

Honestly, I was more annoyed that APEFACE isn't even included in the favorite toy spot, but the Powerdashers and even the Reflector 3 pack are. Just because of that I'm doing the meme vote of Hauler because of his obscurity, and voting Hot Shot as my favorite toy because I like the Hound mold, but I'd rather my vote go toward the non-G1 character to try and make the point that there's more than G1

Thing is, I wasn't even that annoyed until I realized Apeface wasn't there. They were so desperate to avoid any hint that Beast Wars sells that they even removed the option to vote for the only beastformer option :lol:

Were any of the other final-wave Siege toys on there, like Crosshairs, Rung, Singe, Spinister, etc.? If not, then Hasbro may have assumed that that they and Apeface wouldn't make it to stores until January, missing out on 2019 altogether, and thus left them out since they technically wouldn't have been 2019 toys.

Shhhhhh, that doesn't fit the joke :lol: But yeah, that's actually a really good point. I hadn't actually considered that until now

Weapon: Twin Shoulder-Mounted Rocket Launchers
I've barely touched the War for Cybertron: Siege toyline thus far, the ony figures I have out of it are Ironhide, Ratchet and Shockwave, though wave 3 of the Deluxes and Voyagers have recently started appearing at brick-and-mortar toy shops in my area so I may get Brunt.
It is a shame that the Hall of Fame vote is so restricted this year, because from what I've seen Studio Series has been offering better figures in 2019. Use the 35th anniversary excuse all you like (personally I've always interpreted the anniversaries as a celebration of the entire Transformers IP, not just one area of it) but Hasbro are really wearing their G1 bias on their sleeves now.
Either way, I went with Laserbeak for character and Ironhide for toy (I wonder why Ratchet isn't on there?).
