    Wait, did you fools actually think I would campaign for a Maximal, let alone that lowly fuzor Silverbolt? Ha!

    I not only won the Beast Wars in a brilliant & devastating fashion, but succeeded my pure excuse for an ancestor by enslaving all of Cybertron and molding its very existence in my own image! If Optimus Primal's final hand couldn't stop me from writing history, what could a common swindler hope to accomplish through mere trickery?? Vote for me here!





    Also, here are some signatures that contributors to our cause have made, so feel free to use them during the great war of 2012. :)

    I had no idea he was even a contender until today.

    Sky-Byte, I adore you, and I swear I'll campaign for you hard next year, but this year is Megatron.

    Seeing that Tarantulas and Primal were wrongfully not included, I voted for Megs.

    Seeing Beast Wars Megatron in the final 10 vote makes me a little torn ...

    I honestly think it's stupid that he wasn't inducted with Megatron 2 years ago

    Beast wars megatron is a VASTLY different character than g1 buckethead. You know, he was actually COMPETENT.

    Beast wars megatron is easily in the top three megatrons, and in my opinion, the best megatron ever.

    just throwing him in with all the other megatrons would do a disservice to the way that character was written

    I'm fully supporting the minerva and swindle campain, but even I am gonna defend Beast Wars Megatron's right to be in the running

    So? G1 Megatron and UT Megatron are different characters too.

    no, they are just both megatrons. Beast Wars Megatron is in all actuallity a new character, the only thing he did was change his name to megatron, other than that he has no ties to megatron

    Considering he was the main antagonist of Beast Wars and lead the evil faction of the show, I'd say he's plenty like normal Megatron

    So is G1 to the UT versions and to Animated, Movie, and Prime. They may of been Dcon leaders, but they are also diffterent characters in their own right. Prime's Megatron to G1 Megatron is like day to night difference.

    If they said Megatron was locked in, it should of been all versions under the name. Not just one under one faction and skip over one of the greatest using the name.

    BW Megs appeared alongside G1 Megatron. He took G1 Megatron's spark. He's in the same continuity as G1. BW Megatron is more than just a new version of Megatron for a new show.

    This is what I wanted to ask before. When a character gets inducted, do all of its namesakes across continuites get inducted?

    But as for BW Megatron vs other Megatrons, the other Megatrons were moreso incarnations of each other..they're all Decepticon leaders fighting on present day Earth against Prime and his autobots. BW Megatron on the other hand was clearly explained to be a decepticon descendant who took ON the name Megatron...he doesn't fit in the same category.

    Plus he's in the same timeline as G1 cartoon series Megatron, that wouldn't even make sense to have him thrown in with G1 Megatron and therefore, the others. he wasn't an attempt at trying to portray that original villian.

    EDIT: BW Megatron for Hall of Fame is a great move... Yesssssss.

    Just being in the same continuity as G1 Megs isn't enough to designate a different spot in the HOF IMO

    You know, I completely agree that this HOF thing should have separate Megatrons, but here's the difference to the argument at hand, at least IMO.

    BW Megs and G1 Megs were essentially in the same continuity. They were in the same place, same "time." Obviously it's impossible to be the same character.

    G1 Megs was not in the same place, same time as Armada Megs, Prime Megs, etc. Those Megatrons that followed G1 Megs are different characters, but fulfilling identical character arcs, or close to it. That's probably Hasbro's justification.

    This is all invalid because I feel Megatron =/= all Megatrons.

    But given BW Megatron did take the spark of G1 Megatron and kept it until the war was over, woudn't that meant the two were the same for a short time as both sparks where in one body?

    I gotta admit, BW Megatron is my most favorite villain in Transformers!

    If the voting is the same as last year's, I'm definitely going to have to split my votes between Swindle and BW Megatron.

    I'm sorry Rattrap/Scott, but Energon is thicker than Oil...

    As a former Decepticon now Predacon, I'm formally changing my vote to BW Megatron:

    Is there a common Sig pic for such a cause?
