FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

HASBRO “ROLLS OUT” TRANSFORMERS HALL OF FAME
TRANSFORMERS Fans Will Participate in Selecting One Robot for the Class of 2010

Pawtucket, R.I. (March 26, 2010) — After more than 25 years of “MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE” action, Hasbro (NYSE: HAS) is announcing the TRANSFORMERS Hall of Fame that will honor both “ROBOTS IN DISGUISE” and those influential in creating and building this iconic entertainment brand.

Heroic AUTOBOTS OPTIMUS PRIME and BUMBLEBEE, as well as evil DECEPTICONS MEGATRON and STARSCREAM, will be the first robots honored with admission as chosen by Hasbro’s TRANSFORMERS Hall of Fame internal panel of judges. TRANSFORMERS fans around the world will determine a fifth robot to join the inaugural class via voting on the Transformers.com website starting on Monday, May 10, 2010. The winning robot will be revealed Saturday night, June 26, 2010 in Orlando, FL at the annual TRANSFORMERS convention known as “BotCon” when the entire Class of 2010 will be officially inducted.

“The TRANSFORMERS Hall of Fame celebrates a global entertainment property that has sparked the imagination of millions of kids over the past 26 years and remains one of the world’s most iconic brands,” said Greg Lombardo, senior director of marketing for TRANSFORMERS. “Starting in 2010, Hasbro will annually honor fans’ most-loved characters from the world of CYBERTRON as well as those individuals who have helped shape a brand that has spawned an army of popular action figures, multiple animated series and two blockbuster live action movies that set worldwide box office records.”

First introduced in 1984 by Hasbro and Takara as a toy line, the TRANSFORMERS brand
has provided kids with hours of MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE fun with their action figures that convert from robot to vehicles and back again. Legions of boys around the world grew up creating fantastic adventures and battles set on both the planet CYBERTRON and Earth that featured the “good-guy” AUTOBOTS and the “bad-guy” DECEPTICONS. Since then, more than 7500 robots have been introduced and are now eligible to earn a slot in the TRANSFORMERS Hall of Fame’s inaugural class.

As much as I hate to admit it, it will probably be Grimlock.

That said, I would vote for Unicron!

Take that glow off and if anything, give it a black stroke to run in with the black panel behind, almost as if it was a thick comic outline. But the glow and the font is cheesy. In fact the botcon font looks so dated whereas the Transformers some how has survived the test of time. The typeface for botcon is one of those fonts that is tring to hard. Sorry just saw those 2 fonts and that glow and I couldn't help myself.

I want to nominate Soundwave. I think Optimus or Bumblebee are too obvious. Gotta go with my favorite of Soundwave.

I would think Soundwave is the next most well known character.

How about Ravage? He's such a good little kitty. :grin:

I guess I misunderstood this. We're just picking the 5th character to be able to be voted on. So in that case, let's nominate Soundwave!!!

Hmm, interesting. I'm guessing Prime and Megatron are in the 'first class'. Bumblebee, too?
Not caring about scale since 1984. Just like Hasbro.

Knowing Hasbro, I'm betting the fifth choice will be 'Bombshock with Combaticons'. I'd love to see someone like Ultra Magnus, Rodimus or even Hound, my favorite when I was 5. But I really am betting that this is some kind of marketing ploy so of course they'll fave the movie favorites, plus the new guys that they have coming out.

My vote would go to Hot Rod/Rodimus Prime.

It'll probably be Grimlock or Soundwave though.

Just one spot open? There are at least four characters that I think deserve a spot:

  • Star Saber (he is supposedly stated to be the greatest Autobot Supreme Commander of them all)
  • Optimus Primal
  • Beast Wars Dinobot (Code of Hero should explain why)
  • Animated Prowl (Endgame - Part II)
