The first class inducted to the HOF MUST be epic. The best of the best will be included in this group. Remember this is the Hall Of FAME, not the Hall of the Very Good. Optimus, Bumblebee, Megatrom, Starscream, and the yet to be elected fifth member are the backbone of the franchise. These characters cross generations and continuities. Just think of the first class inducted in the MLBHOF. Ty Cobb, Babe Ruth, Honus Wagner, Christy Mathewson and Walter Johnson are the greatest of the great prior to the opening of the MLBHOF. My thoughts on the fifth member turn me toward Soundwave. He has a huge fandom and his character has transcended generations just like the others. The only other one in this group to hold that distinction is Grimlock. But Soundwave has to be in the first class.
