Hasbro Inc has revealed the second nominee for the final slot of the Transformers Hall Of Fame.
He is the creator of Computron, always feels he is more capable than Optimus Prime to lead the Autobots and the undisputed leader of the Dinobots - Grimlock.

Check out the Hasbro article on Grimlock:
"Fan’s choice nominee #2 is: GRIMLOCK

“Me GRIMLOCK king!”

GRIMLOCK fought his way through the gladiatorial pits underneath Kaon to become one of the greatest warriors on CYBERTRON. Having joined the AUTOBOTS early on during the Great War, GRIMLOCK made it clear he never trusted OPTIMUS PRIME to properly lead the AUTOBOTS. Due to his shock and awe approach to combat, GRIMLOCK is not regarded as a great military leader. However, he has fought and survived through enough battles to earn top ranking position among the AUTOBOTS. Having struck out on his own, GRIMLOCK eventually found himself leader of the DINOBOTS, a special operations strike force unit that can power through most barricades and DECEPTICON strongholds. During a battle with the DECEPTICON SCORPONOK, GRIMLOCK’s vocal processors were damaged, leading to his awkward and distinct way of speaking. If GRIMLOCK has a weakness, it is his larger than Prime ego and his lack of patience.

No real surprise Grimlock gets a nom. Honestly... never liked him that much, but I will acknowledge he deserves it.

Who knew? I knew. Anyone else knew? Yes, everyone else knew, except for those who don't even KNOW who Grimlock is. He's an obvious choice for runner up. If they would put his beast mode in the Heavy Metal War game, I MIGHT use it for a new character. Other than that, all Cassette Players are awesome, which include my homies Soundwave and Thunderstrike. :lol:

It'll be Megatron next (Pyro has her fingers crossed!)


Err... Pyro, Megs was already announced.


Just now caught that. #-o

HE NEVER DID ANYTHING OF WORTH!

Choose someone for the first group that's not just another G1 Groupie. Choose someone who actually has a personality of his own. Choose someone on the basis of his own actions. Choose Dinobot![/size]


You are kidding right? Soundwave has one of the impressive list of activities of any of the G1 characters.

Dinobot is a highly impressive character in his own right, and also deserves to receive a nomination, But it is for his honour that he has achieved his following, and to discredit Soundwave with nontruths belittles his commitment to honour.

Vote for the candidate with charisma and proven leadership. Vote for Soundwave.


I reiterate... Soundwave never did anything of worth or value on his own. His greatest achievements were the result of someone else's orders, or his minions' actions... not his. He had a cool toy and a cool voice... and that's about it.

Now, I'm resigned to his induction to the hall of fame, sadly misguided as it may be... I just wish more people would see him for the tool that he is, rather than someone with an actual PERSONALITY.

(Tomorrow's reveal prediction: Shockwave)

I think Soundwave thoroughly deserves his position in the Hall-of-Fame. His toy is excellent, the gimmick works wonderfully, and if you've read the marvel US\UK comics from the 80s, he's a sinister, power-grabbing bastard to boot.

If Shockwave wins next year, I'll be a very happy bunny.

Hasbro has revealed the third Hall of Fame candidate today. Straight out of coolsville, melodiously voiced by Scatman Crothers, and a brilliant strategist in his own right, Autobot Jazz is the next nominee.

Hasbro wrote:Fan’s choice nominee #3 is: AUTOBOT JAZZ
"I do everything with style!”

Before OPTIMUS PRIME became leader of the AUTOBOTS, he was known as Orion Pax and AUTOBOT JAZZ was his closest friend. Respected by his fellow AUTOBOTS for always taking the most dangerous missions in the war against the DECEPTICONS, AUTOBOT JAZZ became one of the best lieutenants for OPTIMUS PRIME. Always selecting a fast and stylish alt mode that reflects his cool and competent demeanor, and having studied the ways of the Cyber-Ninja, AUTOBOT JAZZ always takes in the situation before making any decisions. Once on Earth, AUTOBOT JAZZ quickly became enthralled with its many different cultures. Fascinated by Earth’s music, AUTOBOT JAZZ seamlessly picked up human slang, which he often uses to relieve tension amongst the ranks.

Wait, are they trying to imply that Jazz is Dion?!

Great that Jazz got in. Hard to decide between him and Grimlock, but I'll probably go with Grimlock.

No, Jazz was Ariel. Dion became Elita-1. Alpha Trion was a little senile even back then.

So the fans pick the bots, but the stories are for the kids...

Soundwave has minicons...
Jazz was Prime's BFF...

Did we know that thing about GRimlock's vocal processor glitch caused by Scorponok? Or is this a retcon like the others?

It's a retcon, but nobody knows for which continuity. It doesn't matter because all the characters are a composite of most of their previous incarnations, except for Grimlock who is mostly his Marvel Comics self.

Today Hasbro Inc has revealed the 4th nominee for Fan’s Choice finalists for TRANSFORMERS HALL OF FAME. Together with Soundwave, he is another Megatron loyalist - Shockwave.

Check out Hasbro description on this fan's choice:

"Fan’s choice nominee #4 is: SHOCKWAVE
“Clarity of thought is the key to deciding your actions.”

The cold and calculating mind of SHOCKWAVE makes most DECEPTICONS question and fear his true intensions. SHOCKWAVE has always secretly sought control over the DECEPTICONS, but believes all of CYBERTRON will benefit from his scientific and logical approach to rule. Perhaps as powerful as MEGATRON, SHOCKWAVE will loyally serve the DECEPTICON leader until the time inevitably comes when logic dictates that MEGATRON must be retired permanently. In the meantime, SHOCKWAVE uses his vast knowledge to plan military assaults on AUTOBOT forces and to perform gruesome experiments on other TRANSFORMERS. Perhaps his only weakness is letting his emotions get the better of him, leading to spontaneous and irrational actions.
