Grimlock is Nominee #2 for Transformers Hall of Fame!
bwbm - Tuesday, May 04, 2010

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 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...

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.

Are we supposed to get anything out of this ? 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 thi... read more

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.

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

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

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.

Transformers At The Moon has posted the latest in their series of deleted audio and extended scenes from the original 1984 The Transformers cartoon series! This time, they've got over ten minutes' worth of dialogue from "Heavy Metal War," featuring the first appearance of the Constructicons. Keep reading to see the video along with a transcript of the dialogue.
The closure of ToysRUs provokes a lot of emotions - sadness, frustration at the circumstances, and in some a misguided sense of satisfaction stemming from their latter-day pricing habits. But at some point in our lives a great many of us were ToysRUs Kids. And so longtime Transformers fan and ASMzine proprietor Phil Zeman has created the site I Didn't Want to Grow Up, which is accepting submissions of your stories and reminiscences of visiting what was once the premiere source of action figures for children and collectors.

Few would guess the last piece to be reissued from the original Transformers Generation 1 series would be the music scores. Even thought the original cartoons have been reissued, updated and restored multiple times. Fans that have been asking for copies of the Original Sound Tracks (OST) masters have finally gotten theirs, on vinyl of all things. IF, they were fast enough to buy one of the 2,000 copies that sold out in less than 10 minutes. The good news is a second pressing is in the works.
ALL GOOD THINGS…! Rodimus and the Crusadercons have reached their final destination. The trouble is, it’s not Cyberutopia. In fact, it’s not ANYWHERE. But they’d better get used to it, because they’re going to be there until the end of Time…
After selling out their limited run within minutes, Enjoy The Ride Records has announced that their vinyl G1 soundtrack LP will be heading back to the presses later this year! Details and an exact timeframe are not known at this time, but it's good to know that access to this (at present) vinyl-only release will be expanding somewhat. Keep reading to see the announcement!
