    Hm...I do fee like you have a point, but people have a right to vote for what they will.

    Reason I voted for Lockdown was because, despite only appearing a few years ago, he has QUICKLY shot up the ranks, it feels. He's in IDW and the movies. I'd love for him to quickly hit the Hall of Fame mark. That, and I just think he's cool.

    This may be my ignorance speaking, but why vote Prowl? While he's a classic G1 character, I don't recall that he contributed all that much in the cartoon (he's best known for his graphic death) to be worth a vote. Unless he was more prominent in the comics, perhaps?

    In any case, I voted Hot Rod.

    He is VERY prominent in the comics.

    If I did vote for him, it'd be for his Animated and IDW self.

    Cause robot samurai are cool.

    I've voted for Lockdown because he's awesome, but I think Prowl will be the big winner at least on our poll, because he's always been massively popular, since the early days, and he's one of the best things about the Robots in Disguise Ongoing. I'd be very surprised if Prowl doesn't get in this year.

    Ah yes, in true HoF fashion, a large portion of responses seem largely devoted to putting down the other nominees.

    Anyway, I went Lockdown. It was tough, as four characters I would really like to see get in are up there. It was a REALLY hard pick between Blackarachnia (BTW, you parsed her name wrong :p ), Sky-Byte and Lockdown.

    Because he's a great character?

    Really? You can't make a case for the second Autobot Leader ever, and probably the only prominent non-Optimus Autobot Leader of all time?

    You're obviously not too in the know on either character.

    Sky-Byte has been a fan favourite for years, essentially becoming the mascot of Car Robots/RID, a line with a lot of signficance to fans and the Transformers brand's history. He's hardly over-rated.

    Erector was a joke because his name is a dick joke. (granted, a joke even Hasbro couldn't resist getting in on) There was literally nothing more to him. Don't mistake legitimate fan-following for being "over-rated." There are characters up there that are deffinitely more "over-rated" but that's not really for individuals to decide.

    Lockdown, no contest. He's the main antagonist in the new movie, after all. Plus he's one of my all-time favorite characters.

    I should have been a little more clear.

    I meant that I felt like Hot Rod shouldn't be on the list. Because he should, by virtue of being the protagonist of the animated movie and a non-Optimus Prime who led the Autobots for more than 10 seconds before Optimus was resurrected, be able to get on the Hall of Fame without having to be nominated by the fans.

    Is Rodimus Prime already in the Hall of Fame? Don't know if we need Hot Rod as well. My vote is for PROWL!

    I'm gonna laugh so hard if Lockdown in AoE turns out to be a red herring like Shockwave in DotM.

    This is a tough choice. I had about honed it down between Rattrap and Prowl, but then was stuck. I eventually plumbed for Rattrap primarily because I just friggin' love Beast Wars.

    That being said, I'll be satisfied whoever wins, even if it is not one of those two. A good list this year.

    That makes more sense.

    Yeah, I feel like Rodimus and Prowl should be auto-inductees. Hell, they may just end up like that. Does HOF still automatically include characters or is it just fan vote, now?

    Though I wonder what real life people will get inducted.

    Won't really affect me, as I voted based purely on teh Animated character.

    Until the movie comes out, I'm kind of just not thinking of AOE Lockdown outside of what I see in trailers. At the very least he has a longer fight with Optimus than Shockwave ever did. :lol

    We're already pretty certain Galvatron eventually becomes the main villain by the end of the movie. Lockdown mainly sets things in motion. He's probably meant to be the main rival for Drift.

    LOL! That's good at least!!

    I guess my main thing about Lockdown is it feels like a lot of people are voting for him because he's the hot new thing. Like if AoE Crosshairs had made this poll for his awesome forward flip and coat.

    But yeah, I guess it's been 6 years since he first appeared. Still a minor character in my eyes. I actually do like him just so there's no confusion. Did he have a lot to do in the comics?

    Sky-Byte. Gotta show the non-G1 love.

    Though Lockdown would be second, just because he's done pretty well for himself, for still being a 'rookie' in the overall franchise.
