ORIGINAL POST

Okay, transfans, it is up to you! Hasbro is once again organizing the 2012 Transformers Hall of Fame, and they need your help once again!

THE INDUCTEES ARE...

They have chosen a set of robots to be inducted in the Hall of Fame and they are the following three robots: Autobots Jazz and Grimlock, and Decepticon Shockwave!

But just like the previous years, there is room for one more as chosen by the fans! So beginning now until Thursday, March 1st at 12:00 PM Eastern time, we are asking for the character you think should the fourth member of this group!

NOMINATE YOUR FAVORITE CHARACTER TO JOIN THE GROUP

There are three ways to nominate your favorite character (we will not tell if you do all three):
1) Post in this thread attached in the TFormers Community (anywhere else within the community will not be counted)
2) Comment in the Facebook (brand-new!) comment system at the bottom of this article.
3) Nominate and vote in THIS Facebook post ONLY (be sure to like our page!)

If you cannot just think of one, that's okay, you can post up to three. At the end of the submission date, we will tally all of the votes, and the top five will be sent over to Hasbro so that they can be counted towards the overall pot of votes.

Also, be sure to nominate a character other than the ones slated to be inducted this year and the ones listed in the "Transformers Hall of Fame Members" section.

So, what are you waiting for?

Start your brain engines and post!

Well Rodimus Prime will end up getting my vote for the final if Hasbro puts him in the final poll. Arcee would get a sympathy vote since she never got a toy.

I've looked around the other sites submitting votes and it looks like the five characters who did the best were Beast Wars Megatron, Wheeljack, Arcee, Swindle and Hot Rod/Rodimus Prime. We'll see when Hasbro posts their poll anyway.

Calling it now. Rattrap, since he's a BW character voiced by Scott McNeil, just like the last 2 fan choice winners..

I'm voting for Magnus, personally

To be fair to the Hotshot persona/character. Hotshot was a fan favorite during the AEC cartoon/toy lines. hotshot in AEC,was extremly popular back then like bumblebee is extremly popular now.

In addition to the Hotshot character/toy being popular in the AEC universe. the Hotshot character started off being popular in the 2002 Rid cartoon series as a spychanger. then Hotshot received a cameo cartoon appearance in the animated cartoon series in season 3. then hotshot received another new mold toy in the classics 2.0 toy line. had animated been given a season four,we would have received a toy of hotshot as it was planned.

Hasbro has this thing for YELLOW,They love the color. Starting with beastwars,their's been a yellow colored TF character dominating the various TF cartoons/toy lines. It started with Cheetor,then moved on to hotshot,now the spotlight is on bumblebee.

Why am I seeing Hot Shot?

I mean damn! Hot Shot? Really?

One person voted hot crap shot and he makes the tally? yet Grimlock wasn't in the tally and he got voted twice? If hot crap shot gets in the HOF, then I would have lost all faith in the idea that Hasbro respects Transformers

and who voted bulkhead? :wat

It absolutely didn't start with Cheetor. It started with G1 Bumblebee. Who was Daniel's best lil buddy? It was Bumblebee before it was Arcee. Then Cheetor and Bumblebee again. Hot Shot doesn't qualify because he's a horrible character, and one of the most reviled characters of all time. He's on that list with G1 Wheelie and I'd rather have Wheelie over him.

Bumblebee was Spike's (or Buster's depending on whether you read the comics or watched the cartoon) bestbuddy in G1, Wheelie was Daniel's bestbuddy. And while Hotshot was absolutely despised in most Western Countries, he (somehow) garnered a fan following with the 5 year old's in many asian countries that the AEC cartoon's were aimed at

The Yellow kid-friendly 'bot thing started in G1...with Bumblebee... Not in Beast Wars with Cheetor

abates - 2012-03-03 @ 3:24 am

Voting in the Hall of Fame tends to be slanted towards characters who originated in G1 and, to a lesser extent, Beast Wars, so if a character who started in another franchise appears in sufficient votes to appear in a site's top five, that indicates to me that there's some popular support for that character out there. In Hot Shot's case he was a major part of Armada and Cybertron, and I'm sure he's well remembered by people.

Shadowpanther - 2012-03-02 @ 11:14 pm

Hotshot in Armada was clearly the star & main attraction in the cartoon. as the character was shown growing up & eventually becomming the leader of the autobots at the end of the cartoon.

In energon Hotshot was in the cartoon but not the star. kicker & ironhide stole the show.

In the cybertron cartoon series. hotshot did get a major starring role & a bunch of episodes that revolved around him.

their were literally 15 speed planet episodes that starred & revolved around hotshot growing up & learning lessons. then their were more episodes dedicated to hotshot where he & two other robots got badly damaged & used new planet keys to get their upgraded new & more powerful forms. hotshot didn't become the autobo leader at the end of the cartoon,jetfire became the autobot leader. however hotshot did become the speed planet leader at the end of the cartoon.

In RID,Hotshot did have a decent role as a spychanger,hanging out with his spychanger buddies & learning how to get along as a team.

To be fair to the Hotshot persona/character. Hotshot was a fan favorite during the AEC cartoon/toy lines. hotshot in AEC,was extremly popular back then like bumblebee is extremly popular now.

No he wasn't, he was hated and despised like he is still today by the majority. hot crap shot is nothing more then a cheap and pathetic rip off, of Hot Rod

Shadowpanther - 2012-03-02 @ 11:06 pm

I'm happy with the results. Because Rodimus Prime is my all time favorite Generation one persona & toy.

Hopefully if Rodimus Prime wins the hall of fame award at botcon 2012. we get a classics/generations leader sized rodimus prime toy that transforms from a giant robot into a one-piece huge truck mode like the titanium 6 inch rodimus prime toy. if I had my way,i'd increase the 6 inch titanium rodimus prime toy into 9.5 inches & add poseable fingers.,then release it as a classics styled leader class rodimus prime toy.

To answer all of your questions, the votes were tallied in this board, on the TFormers.com comments AND Facebook. We had over 170 votes and Rodimus won by a landslide.

Sorry, but the fans everywhere have spoken!
