Transformers News: Hasbro's 2017 Transformers Hall of Fame Fans' Choice Voting

As you know, no characters who have already been inducted within the 'Favorite Character' category will be considered for nomination. In a fun twist this year, in celebration of the release of Transformers: The Last Knight and the 10 year anniversary of the film franchise, any character that appears in the films is eligible for nomination in the 'Favorite Movie Character' category regardless of their nomination or induction previously (if Megatron can win for G1 and Beast Wars, it is only fair!). A list of inducted characters can be found at the bottom of this post.

The new category '2017 Transformers Toy of the Year' is being introduced to provide fans an opportunity to share their passion for the figures that have been the heartbeat of the brand for over 30 years. This new category is meant to celebrate the new product within the calendar year and the ongoing efforts of the Hasbro Transformers team to fulfill the desires of our many fans around the world with innovative and exciting toys. All nominations for this category must be toys newly released by Hasbro in 2017 and can include figures that are yet to hit shelves in the calendar year, but have been announced.

Participate in EACH poll so that we can determine the characters Seibertron.com's citizens wants considered for each category of the Transformers Hall of Fame. We'll share the Top 3 nominees for each category (nine nominees total) including the number of votes with Hasbro by 5pm on Sunday July 16th.

We will rank all of your polling results list in order of who received the most votes for each category. All polling result lists will be combined together, each Transformers fansite outlet getting an equal voice. Hasbro will use the combined values to generate the final ballot of three choices for each category. Details will follow regarding the official voting process in the coming weeks.

Winners of the final polling will be announced at HASCON, the official Hasbro Fanmily Event (September 8-10th in Providence, RI), during the Transformers Hall of Fame Dinner Event on Friday the 8th!

Yes, but, according to the Wiki (Sorry, no citation):
[quote]Following the video, Aaron Archer noted that doing this was fun once, but asked the fandom to please not do a similar thing again.[/quote]

Then again, he doesn't exactly have an official say anymore so... :-P

Like I said in the voting thread, I can't really give a toy vote since I haven't really been buying any toys that were released this year.

It would be a nice thing if this year's human inductee is the late Wally Burr. Here's hoping someone at Hasbro has already considered this, or at least, will see this and consider it.

I would vote for triggerhappy, blackarachnia & barricade but i dont use facebook or instagram and not making an account just for this, good job hasbro.

But id like to know how trypticon & topspin are on the list, the toys arent even out yet at mass retail. Very few people have these so how is it possible they can be considered the best toy this year? It would be the same as a game being called game of the year but only a hand full of people played it and everyone else is basing it off of reviews and videos.

But yeah, Trypticon only just came out
