    I kinda like how Waspinator won for Botcon '11. He is one of the most iconic characters from the Beast Wars series.

    There was not a single episode where nothing bad ever happened to Waspinator!

    I'd rather see Scrounge than RID Scourge. He's definitely a C-Tier guy, but he's not a JOKE like Erector was, he played a small, but significant, part in the comic, and is sort of a beloved, much abused Mascot to G1 marvel, much as Waspy (who richly deserved inclusion) was to BW.

    I'm sure it would annoy the Hasbro design team though, since he's a no-video one-shot-wonder, and the "special hand" thing IS a bit of an Internet meme/joke, and I'd rather we NOT make them reconsider the HOF like they threatened after Erector's showing, but I think Scrounge is viable....

    I'd rather see fans fight for Scrounge to be in the HoF than Erector, but I'm concerned about Hasbro's buttons getting pushed too often on this. Can't we wait until the HoF has been going for a few more years before we start backing oddball contenders? It's bad form to do so right out of the gate like that. The HoF was not created to be abused every year by immature fans.

    Copycat campaigns for Hall of Fame are lame. You can only do a dick-joke once.

    This

    And double this.

    Scrounge is a semi-worthy suggestion, but it's waaaay tooo soon, especially given this year's fiasco...

    I'd rather see Impactor get the fan nod. First commander of the wreckers he died saving Xaaron from a sniper, was resurrected by Flame to be a zombie guard, fought his way back to consciousness and then sacrificed himself again to save Cybertron. Scrounge has a good story too though so I could get behind him in a way I never could for viagrabot.

    Hasbro's just going to shut down the HOF if it's integrity is threatened constantly.

    Yup. And frankly, after Erector, we deserve it.

    Hopefully a year from now we'll all be feeling more sober and all vote for COOL giant stompy alien robots instead of "ironic retro kitchey" giant stompy alien robots.

    The only thing that Scrourge did is being Blaster's friend,and Straxus thrown him into a smelting pool.

    So I take it from this thread we are gong to have to hear people piss and moan about the Erector vote from their high horses till the end of time I see, none too surprising or unexpected.

    Hasbro was pretty hypocritical about the whole thing actually, if they were so uncomfortable with it they should have taken the opportunity they had to bury it outright before they put out the final 5 and there would have been nothing anyone could have done about it .

    Rid Scourge HOF 2012.

    It is pretty easy to type "Scrounge" when you're trying to type "Scourge" ... and fat fingers cause the "n", naturally.

    He also infiltrated Darkmount and got the transmissions that proved OP and the gang were alive on Earth. And he has "magic fingers" so there's a puerile joke angle for those that need it.

    I think the joke is over. It was funny once, but if we do this every year, it loses the appeal. I mean, come on, it is the "Hall of Fame", and (IMO of course) there are a lot of characters who should get in there first. Don't everyone jump on me for that, just sayin'. It reminds me of that "Spotlight Wheelie" story where he was the absolute last guy to be chosen for his mission. That's kinda how I feel about Scrounge in the HOF. Waspinator and Dinobot? Absolutely. Scrounge? Yeah.......I just think as other have said, it was funny with Erector, the novelty is over now
