Transformers Hall of Fame Final Round Voting Open

Beast Wars Megatron, Wheeljack, Arcee, Rodimus, and Sky-Byte, that’s the official verdict from the fan sites’ polls, including our own (maybe that’s what pushed Wheeljack over the top! Then again, BW Megs and Sky-Byte came very close to our top 5, so maybe this is just the destined list); and now it’s your turn to turn 5 nominees into 1 winner. Voting is easy, vote once a day on for the character you think is most deserving (yes, you get one vote EVERY DAY) and the winner of the fan’s choice for Hall of Fame entry will be announced at Botcon in Texas, April 28th.

Vote at Hasbro’s official Transformers website now! (And again tomorrow.)

Then go discuss it in our forums thread dedicated to the Hall of Fame voting.

Our Results for 2012 Transformers Hall of Fame Prelims

Well, the results are in for our part of the official Hall of Fame voting, and we’ve sent this list off to Hasbro. Because the requirements were for an ordered list of our top 5 choices, the tie for 4th and 5th place was worked out by a tiebreaker vote.

  1. Barricade
  2. Rhinox
  3. Prowl
  4. Wheeljack (tied)
  5. Mirage (tied)

Now, Hasbro will take our site’s results, combine them with the other fan sites’ results, from that create a master top 5 and let us fans vote on it on the official Transformers website some time later this month.  We’ll keep you up to date on when that happens.
