Its hard to believe they are not in there already, but what's long overdue has finally happened. The National Toy Hall of Fame have chosen Transformers as one of the finalists for 2016.
Competing with quite a few other well known toys, strangely enough even Bubble-Wrap leads the list among other toys such as Rock Em Sock Em Robots, Uno card game, Fisher Price Little People, Nerf, Clue board game, Pinball, Swing, Care Bears, Coloring Book, Dungeons & Dragons.
Can Transformers beat the wrap for the win?
12 toys are finalists for 2016 induction into The Strong’s National Toy Hall of Fame. Only two or three will take their honored places in the hall this year when they are announced at a ceremony at The Strong on Thursday, November 10, at 10:30 a.m.
Hasbro, Inc. introduced Transformers, a toy line of action figures that change their shapes, in the mid-1980s. They marketed Transformers with an elaborate back story supported by a Marvel comic book series, a cartoon television series, animated movies, electronic games, consumer goods, and even its own cereal. A continuing series of blockbuster films (with the next installment due in June 2017) has kept Transformers in the public eye.
