    Transformers Hall of Fame Vote Round (FAVORITE TRANSFORMERS CHARACTER)

    Vote for your 2018 TRANSFORMERS HASBRO TOY OF THE YEAR based on the characters you mentioned the most earlier this week

    The poll will run until Friday June 29th, at which time we will submit the winners to Hasbro for them to use in their final vote on Transformers.com.

    As you know, no characters who have already been inducted within the ‘Favorite Character’ category will be considered for nomination. A list of inducted characters can be found below.

    The new category ‘Transformers Toy of the Year’ was introduced in 2017 to provide fans an opportunity to share their passion for the figures that have been the heartbeat of the brand for over 30 years. This category will continue in 2018 and is meant to celebrate the new product within the calendar year and the ongoing efforts of the Hasbro Transformers team to fulfill the desires of our many fans around the world with innovative and exciting toys. All nominations for this category must be toys newly released by Hasbro in 2018 and can include figures that have not yet hit shelves in the calendar year, but have been announced.

    Winners of the final polling will be announced at SDCC during the official Transformers brand panel on Thursday, July 19th at 11am.

    This is one of the worst polls I have ever seen. Is this serious?

    POTP Optimus Prime. Because this is a budget version and an available "MP" version.

    I wanted to vote for Rodimus Unicronus on the hope we could get more of that mustache and Shattered Glass characters but the shoulders are horrible.

    EDIT: screw it. I changed my vote to Rodimus. Mustache CashStash for the win

    Battletrap because he brought back the duocon vibe and I really love seeing these levels of homages to the original.

    Close vote, but has to be PotP Optimus Prime. Best regular retail G1-inspired Optimus Prime toy we've gotten in a long, long time and comparable (in robot mode) to MP Optimus Prime toys.

    As much as the $Rodney Unicorn alt mode is luscious ... and as Iconic if flawed as POTP OP is.... I have thought several times in the last few weeks, that the humble legends aspiring to be a deluxe
    Battletrap...
    is CERTAINLY in terms of engineering THE toy of this year.... regardless if there is a line with the name THAT toy is an absolute masterpiece.

    I honestly think it deserves a commemorative version packaged AS a deluxe in premium packaging, maybe with some exclusive deco, paint details although Roadtrap especially has a LOT of paint apps for a legends.

    Voted Battletrap in hopes that spurs Hasbro into making Flywheels. Also a nice and clever update of the g1 toy

    This list (and the other one) sucks. I'll vote Rodimus Unicronus (I did vote for him in the first round)...but I think this goes to show how uninspiring Transformers toys are this year.

    I looooooooove my Battletrap such a cool Duocon presentation by themselves and together.

    But, I honestly had to vote for the POTP Optimus Prime.

    Such a really ingenious way of integrating both Orion Pax and Optimus Prime and sure vehicle mode is kinda bad. the overall presentation of Orion Pax by himself is just mind-blowingly great and so spot on to the Sunbow character appearance.

    And his combined bot mode looks really great so much similarities between the MP-10 and POTP bot modes and yet different enough to make the unique from one another.

    Going with Blackout. Just a fantastic figure that finally did Blackout some justice in size and look. Prime and Hot Rod have been done to death.

    Don't have Blackout or Grimlock, so Starscream it is. Seriously, that figure is amazing.

    POTP Optimus Prime was my second choice.

    I dont have any of these and so far for 2018 , Id probably put put Rippersnapper as the favorites of the few Tf I got this year.
    (Thanks Distribution)

    However, I voted for Battletrap bc I believe the new combination gimmick was done really well with him from various reviews/pics.

    I had battletrap as a child and I just got the new one, such a step up between the two.
