Phase 1: Over the next few days, we want you to tell us your top 5 picks. Please do not pick any previous Hall of Fame inductees. We'll tally those results together on Thursday, March 1st, 2012 to determine which Transformers should be in Seibertron.com's poll. You must have your nominations posted in the corresponding forum topic here no later than February 29th, 2012 at 11:59PM Pacific. The more nominations a character receives, the better chances that character will appear in Seibertron.com's list that gets sent to Hasbro.
Phase 2: Hasbro will then tally the results together from all of the Transformers fan sites to create the final ballot which will be available on Transformers.com some time in March.
Phase 3: The winning Transformers character will be announced at Hasbro's 2012 TRANSFORMERS Hall of Fame ceremony at BotCon in Dallas, TX on Saturday, April 28th, 2012.
The other three nominees of this year's four Transformers to be nominated for the 2012 Transformers Hall of Fame are JAZZ, GRIMLOCK, and SHOCKWAVE. Tell us your top five choices for the next spot so that we can tally our results by next Thursday.
Here is the additional information from Hasbro regarding this year's Transformers Hall of Fame process ...

Hello, TRANSFORMERS fans!
In 2010, Hasbro inducted humans and robots from the worlds of toys, entertainment and CYBERTRON into the inaugural class of its TRANSFORMERS Hall of Fame, honoring more than 25 years of "robots in disguise" action. Now in its third year, Hasbro is once again turning to fans to help finalize the 2012 robot inductee class.
Hasbro’s internal panel of judges has chosen three iconic characters to induct into the TRANFORMERS Hall of Fame in 2012 - Heroic AUTOBOTS JAZZ and GRIMLOCK, as well as evil DECEPTICON SHOCKWAVE. But we need your help to determine this year's fourth robot inductee!
If you have received this email from Hunter Public Relations, we would like to invite you to submit nominees from your fans for the fan-voted TRANSFORMERS Hall of Fame inductee.
Poll your readers to determine the characters they wish to be considered for the TRANSFORMERS Hall of Fame and share your outlet’s top 5 list with us by March 1, 2012. 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 of five choices, which will be upon later in March on Transformers.com.
The winning character will be announced at the TRANSFORMERS Hall of Fame ceremony on Saturday, April 28 at BOTCON, the Official TRANSFORMERS Convention in Dallas, TX.
The TRANSFORMERS Hall of Fame was created to honor those influential in building the iconic entertainment brand, as well as the actual "ROBOTS IN DISGUISE." The inaugural induction ceremony was held at BotCon 2010. TRANSFORMERS influentials Bob Budiansky, Peter Cullen, Hideaki Yoke, and Kohjin Ohno were members of the inaugural class, along with five notable robot characters that are a part of Transformers lore. The previous robot honorees (who are ineligible for the fan-voted slot in this year's ceremony) are:
- OPTIMUS PRIME
Thanks, and roll out!

Unicron Trilogy Hot Shot (to honor and homage that entire era of Transformers)
Blaster (less for his over-the-top presence in the cartoon, than his intense portrayal in Marvel's comic run)
For Maximum Trollage:
Wheelie (to honor the kid-appeal character everyone loves to hate)
Scrounge (an important and oft-forgotten one-issue character from the original Marvel Comics run)
Scooter (Hey, Hasbro owns the rights to Go-Bots now, right?)

Prowl - A natural law enforcer and brilliant detective.
Rumble - Comedy and mayhem rolled into one.
Swindle - Everyone loves to hate him, the sleazy but brilliant schemer.
Perceptor - He rolled with the Wreckers AND cured cosmic rust.

1). Hot Rod/Rodimus Prime: The second most prominent Autobot leader, he starred in the 1986 movie, anchored the entire third season of the G1 cartoon, and honestly has had more character development than Optimus Prime ever got. He was only a minor player in the '80s comics (at least in the US), but he's now getting a big chance to shine in the IDW-verse. He's had a boatload of toys, ranging from good to truly excellent. He's also the only non-repaint Masterpiece toy that's not already in. How is this candidacy not a slam-dunk?
2). Unicron: The most feared force in Transformers history and a prominent part of their origin in many mythologies. He's played a role in virtually every Transformers continuity. He was the driving force behind the 1986 movie. The only possible arguments against him: He's not technically a Transformer, insofar as he is not a Cybertronian, and his toy resume isn't stellar.
3). Beast Wars Megatron: If we're going to have a Beast Wars character on the ballot, this is my vote. He had more character than most Decepticon leaders, and I loved the way he always seemed to be two steps ahead of the Autobots. Plus, he had three awesome toys.
4). Galvatron: I know, I know, this ballot is 1986 heavy. But seriously, Galvatron was awesome in the movie, truly interesting in Season 3 of the cartoon (seriously, watch Webworld if you don't remember), and absolutely *killer* in the UK comics, and to a lesser extent the US comics (Transformers #67 is an all-time favorite of mine.)
5). Jhiaxus: My fanboy pick. Can't justify it on a career achievements basis, obviously. But maybe if we all coalesce around him Hasbro will finally give us a toy of him.
