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.

OH YEAHHHHH!

Shockwave was always one of my favorates but I honestly didn't think he would make the list.

The whole letting his emotions get the better of him is a little confounding. Didn't he only do then once in his spotlight?

Shockwave, the 'logical' choice. ;)

Well, four down and one to go.

I can't agree with this choice and here's why:

Shockwave really has not been as pervasive in the TF universe as some of the others. I believe he was in Energon and Animated, besides G1, but that's it. His role in the cartoon was rare compared to the other nominees and very bland at that- a couple lines here and there. There are much better choices...Prowl, Ironhide,Rumble, Devastator (who has been in FAR more toy lines, btw), Ultra Magnus. The only canon he was ever a regular in was the comic book.

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


Agreed, on all counts.

Rumble? Really?

Actually, I'd like to contend that. He still was pretty well known from the cartoon and was and continues to be a large presence in all the comics. Prowl appeared less in the cartoon and comics until Furman established him as basically a foil to make Grimlock look cool. Ironhide,I could see as a good choice, since he'sretty prevailant, I would also see Ratchet who has had a lot of time in a lot of continuites, and Devestator as the first Gesalt and one of the most popular would be good too.

But Shockwave is a good choice.

anyone else think it's funny that 3 out of the 4 voted to be the most popular still don't have classics/universe/generations toys? :-?
Re: Third Nominee Of Fan's Choice Finalists For Transformers Hall Of Fame - Jazz (1071742)
Posted by First-Aid on May 6th, 2010 @ 2:57pm CDT
OK, maybe Rumble was a bad example. But lets face it...Rumble got a ton more air time in the G1 cartoon than Shockwave ever did. Ironhide was a better example. I would even go with Jetfire over Shockwave. I don't know if there has been a Transformers toy line that HASN'T had a Jetfire of some type in it. And his story is deeply involved in the mythos of the TF origins.

HURRAY! I just LOVE the Mighty One-Eyed Freak! :lol: He may have been a mewling do-next-to-nothing on the G1 cartoon (what he did do was merely implied....as if holding Cybertron for the Decepticon cause for millions of years while Megatron was indisposed isn't epic enough!), but the comics just polished that up and made him one of the biggest baddest Decepticons ever!

Hasbro has revealed the fifth and final nominee for the Fan's Choice slot in the Transformers Hall of Fame: Beast Wars Dinobot!

Hasbro wrote:Fan’s choice nominee #5 is: DINOBOT
"Let me be judged accordingly. The rest is silence.”

Once feared as a PREDACON, DINOBOT found himself stranded alongside MEGATRON in the distant past. There, his code of honor led him to make a choice between following MEGATRON or standing against him. Eventually, DINOBOT joined the heroic MAXIMALS and fought in the BEAST WARS over control of ENERGON, the fate of the human species and CYBERTRON itself. Having sacrificed his life in an honorable stance against the PREDACONS, DINOBOT was cloned by MEGATRON and reborn into Transmetal 2 DINOBOT. By splitting in half the spark in PREDACON RAMPAGE™, MEGATRON was able to control this clone and wield him as a weapon. With the destruction of RAMPAGE, Transmetal 2 DINOBOT’s spark became whole again, along with the consciousness of the warrior that once took hold of this new form and helped save the day.

Man I almost want to vote for Dinobot simply because he's not G1 and he'd symbolize what Beast Wars did for this hobby. I doubt many of you'd be here right now if it wasn't for the Beast Wars series bringing life back into this franchise.

Dinobot, Shockwave, or Soundwave? Hm.
