    Speculation thread, which may well turn into discussion thread when Hasbro announce their picks.

    Who do you think should go in (human)?

    Who do you think should go in (robot)?

    Will Jazz, Grimlock and Shockwave be automatically included? Or will Hasbro think that the fans not-voting them in for the last two years means they'll move on and add their own choices? Like they did with Ironhide and Ratchet.

    Which Beast Wars character deserves to make the short list?


    Also, why hasn't the official page been updated with the 2011 selections?

    Some might think this is to soon, but the 'con is booked and paid for and will be with us before we know it, so now is the time to start discussion.

    I think we'll be getting Jazz and Wheeljack this year, as well as Shockwave. With this logic:
    The most deserving Fan's Choice from the last year (Soundwave for 2010-2011) gets in this year. Hence, my guess will be Rhinox as the Beast Warrior, since he's almost a fusion of Wheeljack and Ironhide.

    I do think that Jazz, Shockwave, and Grimlock will be the auto-inductiees.


    I hope to God Wheeljack gets in. Hot Shot and Demolishor as well.


    Cheetor, Blackarachnia, Silverbolt, Tarantulas, Rattrap, and Rhinox should go in from Beast Wars.

    Jazz, Grimlock, and Shockwave will probably be the auto-inductees. And to be honest, I really don't mind who the wild card will be for the fourth inductee this year.

    As long as it's Sky-Byte. :3

    I think Larry and Bob need to go in for Beast Wars, thus giving the BW fandom reason to celebrate.

    I'd like to see Simon Furman get some recognition for years of work into the franchise.

    I think Wheeljack makes sense as an Auto-inductee alongside Jazz, Grimmy and Shockwave, as he is core Ark crew and had a strong appearance in Prime, not sure if they'd include Que in the video montage. I wouldn't.

    Fan vote - if I had to pick Beast Wars I'd go with BW Megatron, but honestly I think fans should recognise a separate part of the franchise this year, and go with the glory that is Animated Bulkhead. Probably drop the prefix to make him Bulkhead, to include his TF: Prime incarnation.

    I thought the Predacon Megatron would had been in already given the character name is in the HoF.

    Scott McNeil seems to have a nice streak going, Rattrap 2012!

    Please, let's have some fan's choice love for something over than Beast Wars or G1. I don't mind who the final inductee is - but let's remind Hasbro there's a whole lot more to Transformers than G1 1984-5 and Beast Wars this year.

    Definitely Simon, Bob and Larry for the Hall of Fame.

    EDIT: And thanks for just pointing out Welker, D-Unit.

    Humans - Simon Furman, bob Forward, Larry DiTillo and Frank Welker totally need to be in it.

    As for the bots: I nominate either Wheeljack or RID Scourge.

    I can see the Auto-inductees being Shockwave, Grimlock and Wheeljack.

    And I wholly support Forward and DiTillio for this year's humans.

    I'm just waiting to find out what the "No, we're totally serious here" ascended joke/meme choice that pisses a lot of people off and gets totally out of hand will be, so I'll know who to avoid talking to this year. :) 

    While I'm not a big fan of the "one name equals all incarnations" approach of the HOF, I can see that it avoids five Megatrons/Optimii in the HOF at the expense of others. With that in mind, I'll second the noms for Arcee and Bulkhead (all versions) and support many of the standard G1/BW nominations.

    Human - Furman.

    Fan choice - Sky-byte.

    I can't wait to see the inevitable nerdrage over a non-existant 'hall' of fame for ficticious characters though. Last year was a hoot.

    Human. Furman. I really enjoyed his stories.

    TF: I'm gonna throw a curveball and say Bombshell. Not just because he's my first Insecticon, but also because he almost caused the death of a child in the Marvel comics, which is more than most Cons did.

    Both Predacon Megatrons (BW and RiD) are curiously absent from the Megatron HoF video/display. Hmm...

    I don't think I'll be voting for a BW character this year.

    I'd actually like to see someone from other series get in.

    My short list of who I'd like to nominate:
    RID Scourge
    RID Sky-Bite
    TFA Bulkhead
    TFA Lugnut
