This year, Aaron Archer, one of the vice presidents and creative directors at Hasbro, declared that the fan's choice award will now be called the Hartman award, named for my brother Jon and my contributions to the Transformers fan community over the years, specifically the creation of BotCon 18 years ago in 1994. We are certainly very honored and humbled by this recognition. This is a picture of Aaron and myself taken at the Hasbro booth at BotCon this afternoon.


Congratulations my old friends, if anyone deserved it is you guys.

That's a great honor there. We have BotCon and many other inspired Transformers conventions due to them. Congratulations to the Hartmans.

Yet another step showing this is less about the fans, and more about FunPub. But after Swindlegate, I'm not surprised.

Awesome, no matter what someone may say otherwise.

I have been collecting Transformers nonstop since 84. And I have been online since the only place to talk Transformers was att. I see this as a nod to the entire fandom, since the Hartmans have always been huge fans and laid so much groundwork for the fan aspect we enjoy today. This is no situation where corporate america is taking over, which seems to be the underlying fear someone posted. This is fandom.

Well deserved.

I agree... I think it's a perfect name for the award.
