In 2010, Hasbro founded its TRANSFORMERS Hall of Fame, honoring humans and robots that have left an everlasting mark on the world of toys, entertainment and CYBERTRON during the past 30 years of “ROBOTS IN DISGUISE” action. Now in its fifth year, Hasbro is once again turning to fans to help select two Fans’ Choice robot inductees to make up the class of 2014!

** SELECT YOUR NOMINEES FOR 2014 BY CLICKING HERE **

You can tell us who you'd like to be considered for the 2014 TRANSFORMERS Hall of Fame by no later than 12 p.m. Central on Monday June 2nd, 2014. All polling result lists from the various Transformers fansites will be combined together (each outlet getting an equal voice) with the #1 character on each list worth 5 points, etc. The resultant point values will be used to generate the final ballot of five choices, which will be voted upon in early June on the official Transformers page on Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/transformers).

The two characters receiving the most fan votes in the final polling will be announced at Hasbro’s panel at Transformers BotCon in Pasadena, June 20-22!

As a reminder, below are the characters who have already been inducted into the Hall of Fame and are therefore not eligible to be inducted this year.

TRANSFORMERS CURRENTLY IN THE HALL OF FAME:
Optimus Prime
Megatron
Bumblebee
Starscream
Dinobot (Beast Wars)
Ironhide
Ratchet
Soundwave
Waspinator
Grimlock
Shockwave
Jazz
Wheeljack
Beast Wars Megatron
Ultra Magnus

Phase 1: Over the next few days, we want you to tell us your top 5 choices you'd like to see for consideration. Using our results from previous years, we've created a poll which will allow you to select which 5 characters you'd like to see selected. We'll tally those results together on Monday, June 2nd, 2014 to determine which Transformers characters the fans on Seibertron.com think should be considered. The more nominations a character receives, the better chances that character will appear in Seibertron.com's list that gets sent to Hasbro.

Our pre-selected nominees mostly based on data from previous years, includes the following list of characters: Arcee, Astrotrain, Blackarachnia, Blitzwing, Bludgeon, Blurr, Bulkhead, Cyclonus, Devastator, Lockdown, Omega Supreme, Overlord, Prowl, Rattrap, Ravage, Rodimus, Scorponok, Sideswipe, Sixshot, Sky-Byte, Springer, Swerve, Tailgate, Thundercracker, Unicron, and Whirl. You may vote for your nominate your favorite characters on our forums by clicking here.

Phase 2: Hasbro will then tally the results together from all of the Transformers fan sites to create the final ballot which will be voted upon in early June on the official Transformers page on Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/transformers).

Phase 3: The winning Transformers character will be announced at Hasbro's brand panel at BotCon in Pasadena, CA.

Prowl, Smokescreen (not sure if G1 or prime) and also Lockdown since he is the main villain for this years Bay movie so now is his time to shine.

I'd love to see Black Arachnia get in before Arcee.

Also voted for Scorponok, but I too wonder which one: does Hasbro consider G1, Beast Wars, Energon, and Bayniverse Scorponok to all be the same character? While Energon Scorp was clearly homaging several aspects of the original (the one I truly meant to vote for), the other two have precious little in common with them besides the general shape of their alt modes.

Arcee - Some Fembot equality! What?! No... I like the new insane, assassin Arcee.

Cyclonus - He's been integral throughout the Lost Light's trip and he made a good turn as an Autobot.

Omega Supreme - Give the big guy the recognition he deserves as the Autobots 'last line of defense'.

Rattrap - Oh... for bootin' up cold!

Thundercracker - Pure childhood nostalgia vote. One of my first 3 TFs next to Soundwave and Optimus.

Cyclonus is a neutral not an Autobot.

Rodimus: He has flames on his chest
Scorponok: A great Villain
Tailgate: Tiny Ancient Dude, nuff said
Springer: Wrecker Leader
Astrotrain: Always had a soft spot ever since I had his toy.

Still where's Scourge, no love for facial hair TFs?

How is Devastator not on the nominees list?!?! He's a super popular G1 character, a great toy and the FIRST combiner. He's the Jackie Robinson of Transformers and should already be in the Transformers HOF.

I don't get the Lockdown love. Has he been that integral in the Transformers universe? Putting him in over say someone like Omega Supreme or Prowl would be like putting Mike Trout into the baseball HOF over Frank Thomas. I need to see more from Lockdown for him to jump a lot of the G1 and Beast Wars candidates.

The list is just there to simplify data collection since the HoF has been shrunken down to a two minute footnote in a Hasbro powerpoint and isn't nearly a big of a deal as they made it out to be at first. Please vote - posting choices in this thread won't be looked at as far as I understand it.

Devastator - First combiner transformer
Bruticus - Made all other combiners look wimpy

Scotty P, I totally get the purpose of the list and I think it's great that we get to vote. However, I believe Devastator is an obvious nominee. That said, it's much easier for me to criticize the list after the fact than make it up myself. ;)

After being erroneously omitted from the poll earlier, Devastator has been added to the list. Unfortunately, when I added Devastator, it cleared out all of the previous votes without warning me. Urgh. Please vote again if you already voted this morning. Please accept our apology for the earlier omission and for the inconvenience of having to resubmit your vote. Thanks!

Devastator was supposed to be in the list. I must have replaced him with someone else by accident when I was trimming the list down to 25. Now we've got 26. Oh well!

Please vote again ... after I added Devastator, it cleared out all of the data without warning me that it would do that.
