Transformers Hall Of Fame Final Results - Our Top Three Plus Runners-Up For Titans Return, The Last Knight & RID!
RAC - Monday, July 17, 2017

The results are in! You voted on Twitter and here at TFormers, and the final tallies for the Hall of Fame Toy Of The Year for 2017 have been collected and sent along to Hasbro to be counted with all the other fansites! So, who won in the final polls and who was the first runner-up in each category? Keep reading to find out!

THIRD PLACE: Robots In Disguise Winner - Warrior Soundwave, 93 Votes

RID Warriors seem to keep getting better and better. Soundwave's a great-looking figure that encompasses elements of his previous Transformers Prime body, along with influences from Animated and G1 by way of War For Cybertron/Fall of Cybertron - which technically is a previous body for the Aligned Continuity Soundwave, after all. Warriors were the only category we felt obligated to split across two different days because of so many strong molds released this year!

RID Runner-Up: Warrior Starscream

Case in point! Starscream won the other day of Warrior polls in the Eliminations, and it's entirely possible he'd have swept this category if the nomination of Legion Starscream hadn't split the Seeker vote...

SECOND PLACE: Titans Return Winner - Deluxe Triggerhappy, 114 Votes

This was a little bit of a surprise. Triggerhappy's excellent sculpt, dynamic transformation and just all-around quality made him the apple of the fandom's eye upon his release earlier in the year. But while it seemed Topspin succeeded him as the collector favorite in online conversation, it's possible that the broader distribution Wave 3 has seen up to now provided Triggerhappy with an edge in the voting.

Generations Runner-Up: Leader Sixshot

This one was a little less of a surprise. We'd entertained the possibility that Leader Overlord would win the Voyager/Leader round of voting, but he's barely seen any distribution yet. Sixshot's not perfect, but he's a good rendition of the Ninja Consultant For The Decepticons, and does pretty much everything the original toy could with more poseability added in. Also he's got that sweet gunSubmarine mode.

WINNER: The Last Knight & Big Boxes Winner: Titans Return Trypticon, 123 Votes

While there were plenty enough options for four days of eliminations for the other series, Transformers: The Last Knight saw a lot of mold reuse in the Legion class - and we wanted to give the year's big-box items a shot as well. So Friday's poll let people choose between Trypticon, the two Titans Return multipacks, and the The Last Knight: Mission To Cybertron's Planet Cybertron playset (affectionately referred to as "G2 Primus" by some fans.) Trypticon swept that category and the shared finals with TF5 as well! Not bad for a figure that is just now beginning to see official distribution... but it's a really nifty update of the G1 figure that also incorporates the Titan Master gimmick in an incredibly entertaining way. Reminder: if your Trypticon gets Titan Master indigestion, Pepto Bismol tablets are a bright Energon Pink. That can't be a coincidence, can it? (Yes.)

Last Knight/Big Box Runner-Up: Transformers: The Last Knight Voyager Megatron

While Megatron easily won both of his nominated Last Knight categories - Leader and Voyager - even the combined amount wouldn't have been enough to stop the rampaging Trypticon. Which is not a knock against either Megatron: both figures are absoluely gorgeous, and most reports on the just-shipping Voyager have been positive to boot. All three of Hasbro's main Transformers toylines have been really strong in terms of quality this year, and that's something to be thankful for.

Lastly, we at TFormers would like to thank everyone who voted! We've passed our results onto Hasbro, and are looking forward to learning the final Hall of Fame inductee at HasCon in September!

We've got a quick few images on Weibo giving us our first in hand look at the new Cyber Battalion Sideswipe. Part of an assortment with the brand new Shockwave, Sideswipe has been accused of not entirely representing the typical look of the character, and now we have a clearer idea why: It shares fundamental engineering (and probably some of its parts) with Prowl. While many parts look brand new, some of the inner body structure does seem to be shared between the toys, and they seem to transform identically. You can get a good look at the pair side by side in the new photos to compare them for yourself, click through to see!
This evening via twitter, Flame Toys has shared some new photos of an early sample of their upcoming figure of Tarn. Tarn is the first of IDW's Decepticon Justice Division to get an official, licensed figure representation, albeit a non-transforming one. Flame Toys reports that they've finally finished the color master as depicted in these images, which should represent what the full production run will look like later on. We have the photos mirrored for your convenience, check them out just below!
Thanks to Weibo user NOTRAB. We have look at the Transformers Power of the Primes Optimal Optimus figure. The Beast Wars Maximal Transmetals II design figure is finally seen out of package. Giving us a look at what the final production edition will look like. Read on to see the figure out of the box in his robot, ape, and jet modes after the jump.

It is being widely reported that the UK branch of ToysRUs has failed to find a buyer and all 100 stores will be closed within six weeks. The first 25% have already closed or will be closing within a few days. There have also been reports via Twitter of TRU UK not honoring store credit and giftcards, so if you're sitting on those in another territory, you might want to spend them now.
