BotCon 2011 - The Hall of Fame Fan's Choice is Waspinator
bwbm - Saturday, June 04, 2011

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.

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 ... read more

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.
