The votes have been tallied and the verdict cast. The newest inductee into the Transformers Hall of
Fame has been named.

Though many names were mentioned and, by all means deserve the coveted induction, only one can claim the title of Hall of Famer. Your winner, Seibertronians, is WASPINATOR.

EPIC WIN, Avispanator deserved to win!! This is so freakin' cool!

I wasn't aware that anyone actually voted for Waspinator...

Good he won, sounds rigged though. Whatever.

Voted for him like 10 times.

(if it were rigged, Grimlock would have won)

Doesn't this mean Erector gets in automatically next year?

Same here.
Just because us Waspy voters weren't making such a big fuss doesn't at all mean we weren't voting.

Would rather Erector won...and I woulda thought him winning was kinda sad. I was pissed when they said Waspinator. They need to start putting more Beast Wars characters in the voting to start splitting those votes as well. You figure Jazz, Grimlock, and Shockwave are all splitting votes, then the Ross Perot votes going to Erector, meanwhile all the Least Wars fans are putting their collective voice to a single cause. And that's how an unworthy Waspinator gets voted in...

This is really gonna stink when they 86 the HOF in another year or two when the movie hype dies down and we look back and see just WHO got in.

I lol'd at Aaron Archer's quote afterwards "We at Hasbro take our Transformers very seriously, and we hope in the future you will too."

Good for Waspy, though I was hoping for Grimlock.

Is that the exact quote? If it is it just made my eyebrow raise with the thought that something funny is going on. I think we need some transparency as to the number of votes and who counts them.

Awesome. Another Beast Wars character makes it in before three iconic G1 characters. Not to mention now we will have to endure fans campaigning for Erector every year until he wins. Kinda wish he would have won just to get it over with so we could move on.

I don't think it was rigged--I voted for Waspinator, personally, because I enjoyed the character the most out of those nominated, and Beast Wars was my favorite of the Transformer cartoon series.

And, just for reference, yes, I am someone who grew up with the original G1 cast.

That said... it's just for fun, guys. Grimlock, Jazz, Shockwave... they get lots of love already with multiple toys and homages. Let's not take things too seriously.

As for the HOF event itself...it was definitely entertaining, but there's really no reason I can see for them charging $45 bucks for it. Keep the stupid 3D masks and snacks and make it a free event (like it was last year when It included dinner.)

"Least Wars"? You mean "Best Wars", right?
