prowl must be in the transformers hall of fame. it is only logical.
"He's no good at free throws, but boy howdy did you see him foul that guy with a massive sword?!"
I'm sitting in my car at the moment, "borrowing" WiFi from Starbucks because the Internet connection at home is out again...and so I'm not really feeling up to reading every single post that came up to this point. But I feel like putting my thoughts out there, so....
I decided to take a look at who was already in the Hall of Fame and break it down by faction (roughly speaking) to see if that would help.
• Optimus Prime
As I'm sure you can see, the scales are decided tipped in favor of the "good guys." Are there obvious Decepticons who should be in the Hall of Fame?
Some have suggested Swindle...a very good suggestion, I think. He's played a major role in IDW comics, Animated, and now the forthcoming "Fall of Cybertron." And probably some other things I don't recall. I'd love to see him in TF: Prime.
Lugnut...I love Lugnut, but he has so little history that I'm not sure I'm comfortable nominating him. Maybe if we see him in IDW and/or TF Prime and/or "Fall of Cybertron," I'd be good with it. (I'd love to see him in any or all of these! If you're listening, writers/artists/executives: make it happen!) I also wonder if this would also end up including other uses/variants of the name like Lugnutz...which I would not be happy about.
Scourge...when people talk about Scourge, they generally seem to mean the "evil Prime" from RiD, which I didn't see. When I hear Scourge, I think about the G1 character...and I also think of the badass fire-breathing dragon (aka "Flame Convoy") from Cybertron. Now, if memory serves, the Hall of Fame includes every character with the same name when that name goes into the Hall of Fame - even though the character isn't always the same. So I can definitely support Scourge.
Demolishor - an iconic character from Armada and Energon who, sadly, fell off the map until resurrected for multiplayer in "War for Cybertron." Will we see him again in "Fall of Cybertron" / IDW / TF: Prime? I hope so. He's as loyal to Megatron as Lugnut is, and almost as stupid...but he's not as fanatical. He had some interesting character development back in the day...I'd support him, too.
Ransack and Crumplezone - I think these two should be considered as a pair, like Sunstreaker and Sideswipe. I know - they were a big part of Cybertron, and they haven't been seen since. But I love 'em. They're like the Battlechargers, but funnier. Not worthy of the Hall of Fame yet, but I definitely hope we see them again.
Scorponok - Major roles in G1, Energon, and the Bay movies...probably one of the only really good things about Energon (as a story/series), frankly.
Lockdown and Barricade - love these guys too, but I think they need more under their belts before they're worthy. Barricade at least got into "War for Cybertron." Maybe we'll see him again in "Fall of Cybertron," TF Prime, or IDW. I'd like that. Lockdown has had some badass toys, and he's been in IDW...but I think he needs more.
So I guess that's where I'm at...I nominate Swindle, Scourge, Demolishor, and Scorponok. I hope some other folks will support non-traditional candidates (particularly Demolishor)...and let's get some more Decepticons into the Hall of Fame! Transform and Rise Up!
(...and OK, if there MUST be a new Autobot in the Hall of Fame, it should be Prowl, if only to recognize the heroic samurai from "Animated." I love G1 and IDW Prowl, too...but Samurai Prowl is the shiznit.)
Prowl, Wheeljack, Swindle, Blitzwing, BW Inferno, Rattrap and Rhinox!
windbreaker and discharge! because you can't have one without the other.
Got to go with RatTrap and Cheetor as well as Prowl and Wheeljack
It says something about Animated and Prime that one can say this about such a relatively new character!
Oh Gawd thank you!
sorry for party rocking
Minerva all the way.
Random siggy, edit it yourself funny time!
Now in Minerva pink!
Omega Supreme or Skywarp.
Surely Arcee, Cyclonus, Kup, Rodimus Prime, and Ultra Magnus. Go G1 season three!
Optimus Primal (Optimal Optimus)
Without Optimus Primal, Optimus would have been dead after the crash on Earth.
Swindle for 2012!
