    I know for the Transformer movie video game they had us vote on some drones but has hasbro ever held a contest were a fan was able to name a new transformer?

    If not i think its something they should think about doing in the future, maybe announce the winner at botcon or the winner gets flown out to botcon or soemthing

    anyways, discuss

    The problem is, the contest would have to end up with them either picking a name that Hasbro had trademarked, or one they could trademark. It could certainly complicate things.

    Still, it would be pretty cool if they let the fans name more things from a list of names, through convention panels or online polls or whatever.

    A few Botcons ago I think that a fan based "vote on what toy you want to see made" contest was announced but nothing ever happened. It's a shame.

    Well, there WAS "Dispensor". That name was apparently shouted out during a Hasbro... tour? panel? ...at BotCon.

    The contest idea was announced but nothing ever took place - no names, no voting, nothing.
