    HASBRO has held an official HOF at BotCon since 2010.

    Ok thank you, where can I see the list so far? Ironic if Rodimus in it, being at a botcon a tf writer for g1 said and I quote "Yeah, Rodimus Prime was gay".

    I kind of explained it already lol...but Because the writers of g1 said "he was gay" because of all the critique of him in tftm and afterwards at botcons, but now fans nominate him in at botcon as it is finally understood he saved the day in tftm.

    "Well, he is a "flaming" Winnebago, but I think this should be taken with a slight grain of salt. (Apparently this exchange occurred at Botcon 2002) :
    <Question> Mr. McConnohie, you played Tracks.
    <Mike> No,he's not gay.
    <Gautier (jumping in)> But Rodimus is!
    Quoted from Finback's report on a.t.t. --Autobus Prime 14:50, 11 November 2006 (UTC)"

    Ok. I just don't understand how that would be ironic. I am not nitpicking at you or anything. Rodimus isn't yet in the HoF, so I guess it's a moot point anyway :)

    it's because it sounds like your saying that because a character is gay he can't be worthwhile or something

    and anyway, Gautier was just making a joke about a character he voiced

    It's ironic because the writers of Rodimus don't care about him and mock him, but fans do care (finally) to put him in HOF status. I know you weren't nitpicking. Yeah I would like to see a full list of HOF tf who are actually in.

    No that's a fan site like any other. Only Hasbro's own site and the Club's site are in anyway "Official."

    Also I think you might be misremembering Rodimus's voice actor making a (bad) joke that he was gay at Botcon awhile back.

    -ZacWilliam, and no Rodimus isn't in it

    I am not refuting what you heard said at Botcon (although it's possible you may have misinterpreted), I am just not sure how you made the leap from "Rodimus is gay" to irony? Being "gay" and being in the HoF aren't mutually exclusive.

    Rodimus is still a popular character, really. He has lots of fans and I wouldn't be surprised if he gets into the HoF in the next few years.

    I never said Rodimus is gay.

    The tf guy at botcon did. I even posted it in previous post and explained it twice.

    I liked Hot Rod and Rodimus since 1986, I defend him all the time, check my posts here.

    I'm not sure why people don't understand what I type here, I type it clear.

    Deleted because it came across as unkind.

    I don't think you said Rodimus is gay, I think you heard someone say that at Botcon, I am not attributing their comments to you :)

    yes, but you're saying "gay" as if it's a bad thing, Gautier meant "gay" as in "homosexual", from your posts here you're taking it as a negative term or something

    Again for 3rd time, it is ironic that the people involved with rodimus character don't care about him and mock him, just going with past fan flow of so much "screw hot rod" comments over years, but fans put him in HOF status.

    Obviously the tf people don't think he was HOF status cracking jokes like that. Also a writer said "Rodimus was a bad idea". So official tf people don't really care for character but fans do now so much HASBRO (ones mocking him) now must put him in HOF one day if things pan out.
