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.

Choosing Dinobot last year as the winning vote was a very good move. It showed that the TF fandom isn't just into characters due to shallow fanservice or whatnot, but into characters with actual three-dimensional personalities and a depth of quality put into his/her character development.

Dinobot was prime example of this. He appeared in just one series, had barely any notable homages or expies to the guy, but was created as so well a character that he was able to shine above the more well-known guys who always get used time and time again just to please the longtime G1 fans without any real consideration.

Therefore, this next entry should be someone who is just as unique, deep, and thoroughly developed a character as Dinobot was. Whoever that may be I don't know at the moment. But whoever it is shouldn't be chosen simply because of being a well-known character.

It should be someone who has had a deep, solid exploration put into the character's nature and very being, and has undergone as many trials and tribulations to achieve a level of quality put into his/her character as Dinobot had.

No need to pick Soundwave everyone. He's already one of this year's nominees, alongside Ratchet and Ironhide.

No need to pick Ratchet or Ironhide, they're already nominated by Hasbro. So is Soundwave.

You know guys, this is the 15th Anniversary of Beast Wars, but Hasbro hasn't shown us anything even remotely BW related. And while it was super awesome to have Dinobot in last year, I think we need more Beast Wars characters in there. So my choices are:

1. Megatron
2. Optimus Primal
3. Waspinator
4. Cheetor
5. Tarantulas

Show your support for the best Transformers series of all time. Vote Beast Wars!
