You'll have to ask Hasbro next year.
(Hint: The answer is probably no.)
Devastator seems the most worthy out of the lineup left for 1984.
Thundercracker, he is my third favorite Con (trailing behind Starscream & Soundwave) with a lot of potential in terms of story telling yet to be fully realized.
Siege Ironhide for toy, the best Siege figure and one of the best figures in the past few years. To bad Ratchet wasn't on the list cause I prefer him to Ironhide, they somehow perfected perfect with that retool.
No Buzzsaw or Frenzy?? Man they’re really sticking to characters that only appeared in the first season of the cartoon.. to hell with the toys or comics.
‘Favourite G1 character from 1984’
Went with my gut, in the past I was swayed by social media.
This year Devastator and Jetfire (WFC)
I was hoping for the category of:
Based on the two categories in the poll, the HoF seems like an afterthought this year. Best Throttlebot would have at least shown some creativity.
Freeway is the correct answer in case anyone was wondering. His near death experience at the hands of Mindwipe is the tale of legend.

g1 cartoon character- devastator.
best siege toy and best hasbro toy in the last decade- brunt. i kid you not. brunt is the most amazing thing hasbro has done since mp1. Buy brunt. Buy 2. Buy 10 and combine them to a super brunt. Buy 44, dismantle them all to bits and make a pile of brunt parts to complete a siege omega supreme diorama.
Vote for right, vote for might, vote for brunt.
On the G1 category I voted for Thundercracker, he was one of my first TFs as a kid. Just loved his color scheme, that blue on him is intoxicating! He is a no brainier vote for me.
For Siege I have to go with Springer, been waiting decades for an official proper G1 updated version of big green himself and this Siege figure is it, not only the best figure in 2019 but the best figure in a good while for me. Hound and Jetfire are also standouts in the Siege line.
Three decades, three decades of this franchise where in particular two series saved the franchise’s bacon by being new and different and yet we fall back on horse shit like this because people ONLY grew up with the G1 cartoon. Nobody grew up with the Beast Era, nobody grew up with the Unicron Trilogy, nobody grew up with the movies, nobody grew up with Animated, or Prime, or hell nobody is growing up with Cyberverse.
Nope, fuck all that, we need to focus on JUST the G1 cartoon for not just our hall of fame deal, but for our whole franchise going forward into the fourth decade of our history. Creativity? What’s that? Haven’t had that since, shit, probably 2014. Three decades of a franchise? No, we only ever had THREE YEARS of an 80s cartoon.
And the worst part is how damn entitled GeeWun fans are. Insisting that since G1 is where it started, we all need to bow down to it and get out if we don’t like how much Hasbro kisses G1’s ass. We’re the true fans because we’ve been around since the beginning. Our childhood is better than yours, and Hasbro does nothing to say otherwise. My GOD. I am literally so sick of it.
They had characters from other continuities before, It's just a theme, I wouldn't get worked up over it
I like Gears best so I voted for him
It’s another symptom of a disgusting trend.
So quick-witted. No, I like G1. I love the original cartoon, the 86 movie. But I can’t stomach the obnoxious shilling of it over literally all other 27 years of the franchise nor can I stomach the obnoxious 40 year olds who insist that this is the way Transformers should be.
You whine more than Huffer. Vote for him.
WAAAAAAAAHHHHHH!!!!!!!! MY FAVORITE TRANSFORMER ISN'T REPRESENTED IN SOME MEANINGLESS ONLINE POLL!!!!!!!!! MY LIFE IS RUINED!!!!!!!! I'M GOING TO CRAP ALL OVER G1 TO MAKE ME FEEL BETTER!!! WAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHH!!!!!!
Yeah, I voted Mirage for best toy, what about it?
