    If Wheeljack was up for the TF Hall of Fame, would you vote for him? If not, who would you like to see get it?

    Yes, I would. But only if Bulkhead wasn't an option.

    Nothing against Jackie, but I'll be honest that I wouldn't vote for him, as there'd most likely be someone else I'd rather vote for.

    Same here. To me, the question is like "would you like five dollars?" while glossing over the "-or would you rather have ten?" part. :)

    No. Save 2012's place for the logical choice.

    We're presuming Grimlock, Jazz and Shockwave get in as they've been nominated twice now. We might be wrong though.

    Or did you mean Spock?

    Wheeljack's probably one of the Auto-inductees this year. He got a LOT of love in 2010/11, what with him being in Prime, DOTM, and he finally got his due in Classicsverse.

    It /really/ depends on who he's running against.

    Personally, i think the whole concept of the hall of fame is stupid. eventually they are just going to run out of characters to induct into it, what with every character of that certain name being incucted every single year. But, to answer your question, no i would not vote for wheeljack.

    WJ's always been one of my favs so I'd love to see him be at least nominated. But like others have said it also depends who he's running against (though I'm sure Jazz and Shockwave will be auto picked by Hasbro this year so we'll see I guess).

    That's a bit like saying there's no point having kids, because they're just going to die someday. You could apply that defeatist logic to absolutely anything.

    Might be a good incentive to create some new characters, no?

    Truth be told, the reason we had 5 inducted in 2010 and 4 in 2009 was in order for the HOF to play catch up with the brand's history. I can see them doing only three inductees this year, two next year, and then from 2014 on them only inducting one per year.

    Wheeljack is a fun character, but as far as HOF goes, I don't think he has the universal branding appeal or the generation defining iconicity to support being inducted. Maybe a nameslap in Armada, a background cameo in Animated, a solo guest appearance in Prime, and the opposite of a nameslap (nameunslap? nameyank?) in DOTM are enough at this point after who has been inducted already. However, I'd rather see generation defining characters like Sky-Byte and Hot Shot added to showcase more of the brand's history rather than just more G1 characters added.

    Yes, if Prowl is auto-inducted.

    Obviously, you're a big fan :) , but I don't see how Prowl has any kind of HOF argument to stand on unless they are just going to induct all the 1984 characters.
