Grimlock is Nominee #2 for Transformers Hall of Fame!

It's Tuesday, so that means Hasbro has announced today that the second nominee for the Transformers Hall of Fame as Grimlock! So far the nominees announced for the Transformers Hall of Fame are trending with our votes! On May 10th, you will be able to vote for either Grimlock, Soundwave, or three unannounced Transformers to be inducted into the Hall of Fame.
    "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.

I wonder how a gestalt character would fit into a nomination? Say Devastator...would they allow this or only the individual components? Probably as Devastator since the combined form is always more popular than the individuals.

I asked that when Hall of Fame voting first started. Never did get a clear answer. My way of thinking is that you would have to induct the individual combiner team members and then the combined form would be in automatically.

No surprise on Grimlock, I mean, really...

Are we supposed to get anything out of this Hall of Fame? This is reminding me of the Hall of Fame that Hasbro did for G.I. Joe a couple of years ago. It was basically 10, 25th anniversary figures with some extra accessories and fancy packaging. However, these being Transformers, toys seem like a harder thing to accomplish.

something for generations would seem like a good idea, if it gives us a classics wheeljack or Jazz for example then it will be worth keeping an eye on.

Soo, the're still going with the retalling and the Dinobots on earth don't exsist!?! :tfevil

G1 Megatron ^_^ :con

It would appear as such but, I honestly don't mind it that way. Grimlock and the Dynobots being part of the ongoing history is better than them being built on Earth and sitting in a cave until they are needed.

Soundwave, Grimlock, who's next? Brawn, Wheeljack, the (origanal) Autobot twins.

Go Grimlock! I love this bio for him--basically takes the best ideas we've seen about the character over the years, synthesizes them, and stamps them as official cannon. (The lame cartoon origin of the Dinobots is thankfully not even referenced).

Soundwave 1st, Grimlock 2nd, i still say Jazz, Shockwave, i don't know who the fifth TF could be
