It is that time of year again folks, the time of year when we get ready to vote for this year's nominees for the Transformers Hall of Fame! This announcement is to let everyone know that from now up until June 29 the Hall of Fame is open to nominees for Favorite Transformers Character and for the 2018 Toy of the Year. The nominee cannot be someone who has already been inducted, and you can see a list below along with the nominee information.

So get your nominees in and let us know who you think deserves to be in the Hall of Fame next!

Transformers News: 2018 Transformers Hall of Fame Now Open for Nominations

Hi Transformers fans!



It’s that time again to make your voice heard in the Transformers Hall of Fame vote for 2018! Hasbro is asking fans to help nominate inductees into the Transformers Hall of Fame within two categories. The categories are:



· FAVORITE TRANSFORMERS CHARACTER (Fictional Robot Character)

· 2018 TRANSFORMERS HASBRO TOY OF THE YEAR



As you know, no characters who have already been inducted within the ‘Favorite Character’ category will be considered for nomination. A list of inducted characters can be found at the bottom of this email.



The new category ‘Transformers Toy of the Year’ was introduced in 2017 to provide fans an opportunity to share their passion for the figures that have been the heartbeat of the brand for over 30 years. This category will continue in 2018 and is meant to celebrate the new product within the calendar year and the ongoing efforts of the Hasbro Transformers team to fulfill the desires of our many fans around the world with innovative and exciting toys. All nominations for this category must be toys newly released by Hasbro in 2018 and can include figures that have not yet hit shelves in the calendar year, but have been announced.



We ask that you poll your readers to determine the characters they wish to be considered for each category of the Transformers Hall of Fame and share your Top 3 nominees for each category (six nominees total) including the number of votes with us no later than 5 p.m. on Friday, June 29th.



Please rank your outlet’s polling results list in order of who received the most votes for each category. All polling result lists will be combined together, each outlet getting an equal voice. The combined values will be used to generate the final ballot of three choices for each category. Details will follow regarding the official voting process in the coming weeks.



Winners of the final polling will be announced at SDCC during the official Transformers brand panel on Thursday, July 19th at 11am in Room 29AB.



As a reminder, below are the previous inductees into the Hall of Fame. If you have any questions about eligibility, feel free to reach out.

Well, good thing TOY OF THE YEAR also includes toys that haven't come out yet, since little of PotP past wave 1 has actually gotten into collectors' hands. Though judging toys on hype and youtube reviews rather than first hand experience hardly seems logical.

Characters: Easy as "R,S,T"!

Rung
It's time, and maybe now or never. Let's do it.


Springer
How is he not in yet?


Thundercracker
These movies aren't going to make themselves.


For a toy entry, Legends Battletrap (Roadtrap + Battleslash)

Also lol at toy entries when less than two dozen Hasbro Transformers toys have been released this year and hit any kind of availability saturation, or something close to that.
