    So far, with the exception of Dinobot, I think they're echoing the top five vote getters in the poll that was here a week or so ago.

    If Dinobot isn't the 5th nominee, it'll probably be Devastator.

    Looks like anyone waiting for a non G1 character will be dissapointed. Hasbro seems to be making this a G1 HOF this year.

    A quick peek at six other participating fan sites whose polls contributed to the 5 nominees showed that all but one had Dinobot in the Top 5.

    Based on those polls, it seems that Hot Rod/Rodimus would be the likely final nominee if its not Dinobot.

    If Hasbro is indeed making this a G1 HOF this year, perhaps their making it BW specific or BW concentrated next year. Next year is the 15th Anniversary of the Beast Wars cartoon.

    Yeah!!! G1 all the way...this is the hall of fame!....WHEELJACK!
    I remember getting shockwave as a kid, it was huge and it made lasers noise
    My friend had metal gun megatron and he mock me for having shockwave becuz it was purple and it made noise,lol....
    Dinobot seems like a knockoff...I bought universe dino for 5$, hate it try to return it, target wouldn't take it back, end up selling it to a co-worker, who son broke it, becuz he didn't like...
    G1!

    Can Devastator be nominated? Isn't he six separate guys? I wonder how they would handle that situation.

    Anyhow, I think the only two nominees really deserving consideration have to be Jazz and Soundwave. They were each around from the very beginning. Just my opinion.

    Nice. Shockles really needed to get in there, and I'm glad to see that he did.

    Will any of this result in new toys? That's what I'd like to know...

    I love how these bios are amalgams of different interpretations of the characters, but still work fluently.

    I wish Dinobot would get into the last spot, but... I'm not holding my breath.

    Was a bit surprised today with Shockwave, but of course in retrospect he made perfect sense. Can't wait for the "finals" tomorrow; ironic that my actual finals are tomorrow...

    Okay, who's doing the art for these? Because they really look like Superstar Funana's garbage balloon-animal work.

    It would be nice to see Dinobot in there.

    You can't tell me that in the 20 years since G1 no new character has been deserving of a spot in a TF Hall of Fame...
