TF Hall of Fame 2012 - Vote Now!

Post by JediTricks »

For the third year in a row, we here at TFV have been invited to participate in Hasbro's Transformers Hall of Fame program. As with last year, we'll be submitting a top 5 list that we'd like to see included in Hasbro's upcoming Transformers Hall of Fame, that list will be mixed with the other participating fan sites' lists and final judging will be made from those selections.

This year's deadline is March 1st.

Hasbro has already determined the first 3 characters in 2012's Hall of Fame: JAZZ, GRIMLOCK and SHOCKWAVE - we will help decide the 4th character. (Keep in mind the previous Hall of Fame winners - 2010: Optimus Prime, Megatron, Bumblebee, Starscream, and Beast Wars' Dinobot; 2011: Ironhide, Ratchet, Soundwave and Beast Wars Waspinator- since obviously they won't be eligible either.)

For us, voting will be easy. I will do all the tallying, so all you have to do is:
Reply below with a RANKED list of your top 5 (FIVE) choices for Hall of Fame inclusion.
Number 1 must be your TOP choice, number 2 your second choice, and so on.

If you'd like to discuss your votes, we have also have a discussion thread about this poll so come join the fun in there!

Vote now, and thanks for participating!

I'm going to try and get a good sampling from the many different TF lines out there.

1. Rhinox- brains, brawn, and a great personality.
2. SkyByte- he's the smartest shark in town.
3. Arcee- the most famous fembot in TF history. Plus, she's not half bad either.
4. Armada Sideways- my favorite incarnation of Unicron's herald.
5. Blackarachnia- One of my all-time favorites from Beast Wars.

Thanks! There seems to be a lot of support for Blackarachnia this year, which makes me very happy. She was my first favorite character on Beast Wars back when I first started watching it. "The Trigger parts 1 and 2" were the first episodes I ever saw, and so she made a big impact on me. I just got done tearing apart a guy on the Allspark for suggesting that the only reason she's popular is because of her boobs. Stuff like that just pisses me off. But anyway, lots of support for BA over there too. It's surprising, but a welcome surprise.

We need to keep the Erectards out. (None of them have posted since last year.)

In any case, I say we throw behind one TF and try to push them over, both in the preliminary and the finals.

JT, what is the dead line on this?


My initial choices:

-Barricade: New and recognizable character from the movie.

-Mirage: Iconic character from G1. Had defining moments in early issues of the comics and episodes of the cartoon.

-Prowl: An iconic character that has gotten a sustained and meaningful push in recent years

-Thundercracker: Iconic character. And, post-Thundergate.

-Bludgeon: A late run character that has become iconic.



Dom
-might revise this a bit.

Hey, and here I was just wondering when this was gonna come up. My list:
  1. Barricade – Mostly for the same reasons Six said. I feel like the Movieverse deserves *some* sort of representation, and Barricade’s the best candidate for that. I’d really love to see him win it this year, or with a push, at least make it to the Final Five.
  2. Prowl – I’d like to eschew ’84-’85 characters, but it looks like there could be a push for Prowl this year, so I’ll throw my weight behind him. He’s become a favorite of mine in the IDW comics, so that helps. He’s also one of those guys I’m honestly surprised hasn’t been auto-admitted yet. Jazz is up there mocking him.
  3. G1/IDW Arcee – Screw it, IDW made me like her, and looks to continue doing so
    Spoiler
    with her popping up as Prowl’s accomplice in RID
    .
  4. Armada Sideways – One thing I really liked about Armada, and he’s on Crab’s list, so there’s a slight chance. Plus if he does get further, his presence might drive Dom critically insane, so there’s that.
  5. BM Jetstorm – So I can be that hipster douchebag with a Beast Machines character on my list (hey, it needs some sort of representation, and Jetstorm is a fantastic character!).
As much as I like BW, and admit that Blackarachnia probably deserves to get in at some point, I’d *really* like to see someone other than a BW character win this year. Hence my obligatory Optimus Primal nomination not being present here.

If I had to pick someone from the movies, Barricade would definitely be it. Though his name isn't original, the alt-mode and character are. Among the Decepticons, I think he stands out the most.
[*]Armada Sideways – One thing I really liked about Armada, and he’s on Crab’s list, so there’s a slight chance. Plus if he does get further, his presence might drive Dom critically insane, so there’s that.
I do like this guy. And he's shown up at least a couple times. I just think his alt-mode and portrayal in Armada were better than in Cybertron. In TF:C it's not even really certain that it's the same guy. Plus I love how he taunts Megatron and Prime when they're inside Unicron. He's a classy act.
[*]BM Jetstorm – So I can be that hipster douchebag with a Beast Machines character on my list (hey, it needs some sort of representation, and Jetstorm is a fantastic character!).[/list]
BEST VEHICON EVER!!

I understand that sentiment. It's why I tried to avoid lining my nominees with G1 characters. G1 already gets so much love. I would like to see Blackarachnia make it in at some point though.
