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. 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 ... read more

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 ... 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.

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!

If a TV show is very lucky, it will have during its lifespan some singularly defining moment that completely alters the way the entire work is viewed from then onward. If it's fortunate to the extreme, that change of audience perception will even be a positive one. As one of the most important contributors to the overall body of Transformers fiction, Beast Wars was graced with such a moment, when, on this day twenty years ago, March 9th, 1998, the episode Code of Hero debuted in US first run syndication.

Its not every day we get a new animation from the folks at Robot Chicken. They've made a handful of wonderful shorts featuring many of the beloved, Generation 1 characters. This time, we get the fan favorite, Beast Wars Megatron. Voiced by none other than David Kaye himself. The video also features Scorponok and a somewhat rare non-show Maximal character, Polar Claw.
Honestly, RAC should probably have saved this one for near the end, because this is one of the most important ones. Cincinnati' s Kenner Products got into the toy business alongside the Baby Boom, and ultimately wound up defining action figures and play for the Baby Boomers' children in the 1970s and `80s. But their contribution to Transformers would come later, as a division of Hasbro, in the late `90s. Keep reading for more!
Transformers Forged to Fight Releases the beast with the introduction of the Beast Wars Maximal leader, Optimus Primal joining the game play. The Maximal starship Axalon, commanded by Optimus Primal was pulled into a Transwarp Portal while in pursuit of a Predacon warship. Stranded on ancient Earth, Primal and his crew of Maximals fought the Beast Wars to preserve the timeline and protect all life in the galaxy. Read on for the full details.
The other day, Optimus Primal voice actor Garry Chalk gave his first-ever Christmas address - getting into a tradition that Beast Wars Megatron actor David Kaye has upheld for many years now. Today, Kaye responds with his own How The Grinch Stole Christmas song adaptation! But where Chalk went with the classic from the 1966 animated special, Kaye went to the live-action film for "Where Are You, Optimus?" Keep reading to see!
