BotCon 2011 - The Hall of Fame Fan's Choice is Waspinator

The fans have spoken (voted) and the BotCon 2011 Fan's Choice for the Hall of Fame is Waspinator! For the second year in a row, the fans have chosen a Beast era character for the BotCon Hall of Fame. Waspinator beat out Erector (which received a very humorous video tribute), Jazz, Soundwave, and Grimlock. What do you think of this fan choice and the so-far domination by Beast Wars characters? Let us know in the comments!

As a 33 year old man who has loved Transformers, let me also say, I voted for Waspinator too.

It only makes sense that the fans choice would go to a fan favorite like Waspinator. I cannot tell you how many times during the late 90's and early 00's I did a bad Waspinator impersonation. Fans in the group I came up with were mostly extremly pro BW, not everyone mind you, but more than not. So, I can't help but to feel some pride that BW brings it home again. Here's hoping this leads to more BW love in Modern/Prime/Aligned/Whatever contiuity.

I loved his Transmetal toy. it was easily one of my favorite BW figures.

we need all-new toys of all of the HoF members!

At least ol' Waspy does. A Generations figure! Cmon Hasbro! The poor guy has been beaten and blown up all his life. Show him some love!

Waspinator can't be any better than his original Beast Wars toy. Let's face it, he's got one of the simplest transitions from robot mode to alt-mode, in both the show and toy.

Yes, but the original toy had 2 heads and horribly inaccurate proportions compared to what we saw on TV. The technology exists now to make a TV accurate toy of ol' Waspy

I hate to say this,but Beast Wars had much more characterization in it's first season than most of G1 in it's entire run. I have no problem with Waspy winning this one, he deserves it.

Balls to this. Soundwave and Grimlock lost to this?!

Another factor here is that there were 4 G1 characters nominated and only 1 Beast Wars character. G1 fans are divided amongst personal favorites while Beast Wars fan have no choice but to stand united. Nominate 4 BW characters and only 1 G1 and watch the G1 character win. Next years I'd like to see a 2-3 split or maybe a different one from each era.

It doesn't really matter though because in my mind it was the TF Animated Waspinator that made it into the Hall of Fame, not the Beast Wars one.

WOO HOOO!!! The first Animated character to win this honor! Pure win baby!! :P

Thanks again to TOYPLUS on Weibo, as well as portarmy on Twitter for sharing some additional display case photos of Beast Wars Masterpiece Megatron, showing the figure in full color. We've heard by way of scattered reports from the TakaraTomy presentation that the deco may still be something of a work in progress. As seen in the display, Megatron's colors still seem to skew a bit dark as in the earlier printout image. However, in the photo of
