    There's a lot of TF historical significance in this group that deserves some kind of acknowledgement.

    Arcee is the 1st conceptualized female TF (even if her IDW portrayal is not something to shine a light on).

    Hot Rod was the first New Leader character attempted in a mainstream toyline IP, but given how quickly Hasbro has backpedaled from that decision, it doesn't look like something they'd want to celebrate.

    Prowl is literally the face of the Autobots, his visage the inspiration for the faction symbol.

    Blackarachnia is a benchmark in the history of the level of characterization seen in TF media with her longform turn from femme fatale to heroine over the course of the BW series. That said, that level of characterization wasn't exclusive to her as it permeated Beast Wars and its wealth of vibrant characters, like Rattrap as well.

    Lockdown is the 1st new character in a long time that has exploded with a popularity so fierce he's retroactively embedding himself in past continuities while extending into the future of the franchise.

    Sky-Byte is the only character that embodies his entire generation of TF fiction. (other than Optimus being the "star" of "Transformers", that is.)

    All that said, Galvatron, though, is a mystery to me. I can think of only one time (Marvel) when he was not expressly presented as a reformatted Megatron. To me, it's like trying to induct both Cassius Clay and Muhammad Ali into the Boxing HOF...

    He was an Enforcer of a pretty evil guy.

    [​IMG]

    He hunted down bots like Metroplex for the Big Bad. Had a pretty funny scene with Trailcutter. Not sure if he was in anything recently, though.

    Honestly, if Movie Lockdown doesn't do much, I'd probably still vote for him due to his Animated self.

    But I do hope he's important in AOE. Fingers crossed.

    Looks like Blackarachnia and Rattrap are losing this vote. And people were worried that there was too much BW love. :p

    Voted Sky-Byte......But I was really hoping Whirl would be one of the Poll options. I want a comic accurate toy damnit, not that crappy voyager. Same goes for Sky-byte, for a voyager class Hasbro could've made him look better.

    They're all good choices, though I'm hoping either Sky-Byte or Lockdown wins. We could really do with someone outside of G1 or BW.

    Given how each and every heavily advertised Con had a short appearance in the finished movie (Bonecrusher, Demolishor, Shockwave), I fully expect Gunface to be the same.

    Prowl.

    Outside of G1 cartoon he's worth paying attention to and especially his machinations in the comics make him such a vital character.

    Oh, and as the natural enemy of the table. That alone should gain him acceptance.

    Well, since Swerve didn't make the cut (at least, not here), I'll pull this one out from a couple of years ago.

    And, no, I don't think being famous is enough for the Hall of Fame. It's a haiku, for crying out loud!

    Would be cool with many of these choices but in the end I chose Prowl over Lockdown and Blackarachnia, my three favs.

    I through my name in Arcee's hat and gave her the vote she deserves. She has been with us sense Generation 1 and yet has all too often been over looked.

    It's about time that Hasbro showed her some love. Go Arcee and Fembots forever!!! :rock
