All of your votes have been tallied from your Hall of Fame "top 5" picks. The Transformers that will appear in the Seibertron.com poll, which runs now through Wednesday, April 6th, are the following 10 characters: Shockwave (62 votes), Grimlock (46 votes), Jazz (43 votes), Ultra Magnus (25 votes), Hot Rod / Rodimus Prime (21 votes), Wheeljack (21 votes), Devastator (21 votes), Waspinator (18 votes), Beast Wars Megatron (15 votes), and Unicron (14 votes). Help us decide which character should be sent from Seibertron.com for this year's fan's choice character. We'll send the top five results to Hasbro, they'll tally our results with the results from other Transformers fansites, and present the results for us to vote on later this month on Transformers.com.

Hasbro wants all of us here at Seibertron.com to pick our top 5 choices for this year's Transformers Hall of Fame's fan choice, which will be tallied together with results from the other Transformers fan sites, to create the official ballot. Hasbro has already nominated Soundwave, Ratchet, and Ironhide. It's up to us to determine who should be the 4th nominee.

Phase 1: Over the next few days, we want you to tell us who your top 5 picks are (please do not pick Soundwave, Ratchet or Ironhide since they have already been nominated by Hasbro). We'll tally those results together on Friday, April 1st 2010 to determine which Transformers should be in Seibertron.com's poll.

Phase 2: Between Friday, April 1st and Wednesday April 6th, you guys will be able to vote for your favorite Transformer from our poll of five choices determined by all of you. We'll then send off the results from Seibertron.com to Hasbro.

Phase 3: Hasbro will then tally the results together from all of the Transformers fan sites to create the final ballot which will be available on April 22nd.

Phase 4: The winning Transformer will be announced at Hasbro's 2011 TRANSFORMERS Hall of Fame ceremony at BotCon in Pasadena, CA, on June 4, 2011.

The other three nominees of this year's four Transformers to be nominated for the 2011 Transformers Hall of Fame are Soundwave, Ratchet, and Ironhide. Tell us your top five choices for the next spot so that we can put together our poll on Friday.

Here is the additional information from Hasbro regarding this year's Transformers Hall of Fame process ...

Hasbro wrote:March 28, 2011

Hello!

As we approach this year's TRANSFORMERS Hall of Fame induction ceremony in Pasadena, CA, at BotCon, Hasbro is inviting you and your readers to have a role in determining the Class of 2011!

Three beloved and storied TRANSFORMERS characters will be honored with admission as chosen by Hasbro's TRANSFORMERS Hall of Fame internal panel of judges. They are: IRONHIDE, RATCHET and SOUNDWAVE. But this year's class has room for one more robot, which will be selected by TRANSFORMERS' passionate fans.

Outlets throughout the collector-fan community are encouraged to run a Fans' Choice poll with their readers that will help shape the ballot of robots to be voted on to determine the final robot to be enshrined as part of the TRANSFORMERS Hall of Fame's 2011 class.

Hasbro is looking for the top 5 TRANSFORMERS characters to feature in a final vote on Transformers.com beginning Wednesday, April 13, 2011.

Poll your readers to determine the character they wish to be considered for the final spot in the initial class of the TRANSFORMERS Hall of Fame and share your outlet's top 5 list with me no later than 5 p.m. on Wednesday, April 6, 2011. Your outlet's polling results list should be ranked in order of importance from 1-5. All polling result lists will be combined together (each outlet getting an equal voice) with the #1 character on each list worth 5 points, the #2 character worth 4 points, the #3 worth 3 points, etc. The resultant point values will be used to generate the final ballot, which will then be posted to Transformers.com for netwide fan voting through Friday, April 22, 2011.

The winning robot will be announced at Hasbro's 2011 TRANSFORMERS Hall of Fame ceremony at BotCon in Pasadena, CA, on June 4, 2011.

I changed the number of characters that appeared in our poll from 5 to 10 because of the 3 way tie for 5th place. Either way, only the top 5 results will get sent to Hasbro, in the order of highest votes. I'm letting you guys pick 3 just to help sway the votes in your favor. Good luck!



you know soundwave is awesome when he is already picked, but we pick him to get in anyway!!!

I vote for Devastator because he made an impact in every episode he was in and he is the original combiner.

While there's someone else I would like to see win, I'd be very happy if Shockwave won this year. He's my favorite Decepticon. :grin:

1. Waspinator
2. BW Megatron
3. Unicron

Al right, if everybody who didn't vote Shockwave before pulls together, we can deny Shockwave the HoF! XD :lol:

I voted for Beast Wars Megatron as I think every year a Transformer from Beast Wars "should" get in, rather than have it just be a G1 fest all the time.

Beast Wars was, to me anyways, the superior cartoon.

BW Megs and Waspy are my picks.

The way I see it, we can pretty much guarantee that all the choices that Hasbro will automatically induct into the Hall of Fame will be those who's names and/or identities originated in some form of G1 fiction. So, it's up to the fans choices to get characters from the later, non-G1 series who also deserve credit inducted.

If someone you like from G1 isn't immediately inducted by the Hasbro choices, don't worry. It'll likely get put in eventually. But those from the later series that also deserve such recognition need our votes moreso than most G1 choices.

On the human side of things, I wonder who will be inducted. Furman perhaps?

I voted Waspy too. I agree with Sabrblade that considering Hasbro has publicly stated that they have no plans to even acknowledge Beast Wars toy-wise for the foreseeable future, it would be a hilarious and mighty display of fan-power if the HoF fan-choice ended up being a BW character every year for the foreseeable future.

I picked Jazz, Waspinator and Unicron.

So, how many characters will be added this year to the Hall of Fame? Just one or more than one?

Four of the five I voted for ended up in the final lineup, and my fifth choice, Prowl, wasn't far behind!

I stand by my top three picks of Jazz, Shockwave and Wheeljack. Although the more I think about it the more I realise the former two will get inducted next year anyway.

Apparently not enough, as those who would most definitely be automatically inducted by Hasbro in future inaugurations are overtaking him. :roll:

I get your point, and agree with you. But like all things, I imagine that the HOF will only be around for a few years (maybe ten at best). Once they get past the recurring cast of characters and run out of awesome footage for their video montage that they show of the characters, that'll be the end of HOF. So I think it's very worthwhile to nominate a character that you'd like to see, regardless of the character's series. There's also well over 200+ characters from G1. It'd take about 50 years to go through all of the G1 characters with only 4 or 5 per year. Eventually can be a long time coming.
