    "...I believe..."
    "...I can be bigger...larger...!"
    "...I am ...ERECTOR!!!!!!!

    Erector is an iconic symbol of what the late Generation One Transformers series stands for. And while he may face some stiff competition during this seemingly long and hard Hall of Fame nomination process, I wanted to take some time to really expand on who Erector really is.

    For starters, Erector is about growth. TFWiki.net states that he goes out of his way to protect beauty and scenery, that he erects (hence the name) battle plans to minimize damage.

    Second, his name in Japan is Cra-Gun. How many Transformers have GUN in their name and are *NOT* cool?

    He's like Optimus Prime! He's got a long, shafty trailer that can transform in to a battle platform to really give it to the Decepticons!

    He's yellow, like Grapple! Or is Grapple an off-orange?

    Let's look at some of Erector's flaccid competition:

    - Jazz

    They can't even call him Jazz anymore.

    - Grimlock

    We had a dinosaur last year. PASS.

    - Shockwave

    The character was boring! Seriously. Logical this, logical that, the best version of Shockwave wasn't even called Shockwave (due to naming issues), and that was the bat-sh!t crazy insane Shockblast in Energon.

    Do yourself a favor. Go to the nomination thread.

    Just post "Erector". That's all you gotta do. Even the little guy can grow to be large if you believe! VOTE ERECTOR!

    What did Jazz do to get in the Hall of Fame?

    G1 - NOTHING. Oh wait, he did a role call in MTMTE and had cool speakers. LAME!
    G1 Marvel comic - Died. And became a pretender. THEN DID NOTHING EVER AGAIN. LAME!
    G2 - Look at his deco. LAME!
    Alternators - Named him MEISTER. LAME!
    Movie - Died. LAME!

    p.s. ....so lame, you can't call him "JAZZ" it has to be "AUTOBOT JAZZ" or "SPECIAL OPS JAZZ" or "STEATLH ATTACK LAME JAZZ!"

    How about Grimlock?

    G1 - Dumber than a rock. LAME!
    G1 Marvel Comic - nearly destroyed the Autobots with his piss-poor leadership. Then, later on, he leads them in to an ambush on Klo that nearly gets them killed again. LAME!
    G2 - Lame colors are LAME!
    RID - He was a back-ho. Not so LAME!
    Energon - lol
    Alternators - DINOSAUR CAR?!? LAME!!!
    Classics - No articulation. LAME!
    MP - Okay that was all right.

    And everyone's favorite Shockwave?

    G1 - Megatron's maid. LAME!
    G1 Marvel Comic - Logic states that I am LAME!
    Somewhere along the way they lost his name. LAME!
    Somewhere along the way they got his name back. NOT LAME!

    Still, logic? LAME!

    Vote Erector! Never had his name changed! Never released in lame colors! Never died!

    So again, Fuzz buziness spills over to the regular forums. In this case, I can abide - he needs to win.

    I'd love to argue with you all about voting for Erector, but something tells me you guys are master debaters.

    When there is no public choice for next years Hall of Fame, we have no right to say "oh, wait, why not, that is unfair!?!"
    But that's 2012, so sod it, vote Erector!

    Erector just needs a bit of love. He's small now, but he could be really big later. The first step is getting enough nominations to get him part of the ballot. To have a shot. And even if he's the #1 vote getter, he's still not guaranteed to be in the HOF ballot based on the other website's polls.

    Erector's motto should be, "I can be big ... if I believe!"

    Do you believe?

    I believe.

    I have a question for you Erector fans.

    Is he as well-written as Dinobot (last year's fan nominee) in any form of fiction?
