    Hall of Fame stuff that isn't for the real people involved always feels silly to me. I'm not going to rain on anyone else's fun though.

    I'd be way more into voting for toys if we also got to see the designers collect the award at the end. Although a part of that is just me wanting to see and hear more from the designers in general.

    voting for Dinobot TWICE.

    just because it's hilarious

    (also, and i won't complain if they do this, but i wouldn't be surprised if brian goldner is a posthumous addition to the HOF)

    I'm sad for his family and how he died. Cancer sucks and it often takes lives way to early. No one deserves that.

    That said, John Warden was more responsible for how we got to where we are right now with Transformers. Goldner had a more direct hand in the movie franchise...and for that, I'm unsure I'd place him in any Transformers Hall of Fame as I view the movies as bittersweet - mostly awful but successful in growing the fandom.

    At least, Warden would be on my short list in comparison.

    Shame Depth Charge can't be voted for. If Clint Eastwood was a Transformer, he would be Depth Charge.

    I like Galvatron as well, except that I'm not fond of his calves and feet in robot mode, nor how they work in cannon mode. So Roddy is better for me.

    Cyclonus is hampered for me significantly because his head horns aren't incorporated into his jet mode (fake kibble) and his color is just too bright for my tastes. In some ways, I would have preferred a voyager sized version of the old classics that improved the leg transformation to hide the kibble better over what we got.

    I feel the horns as a part of the jet mode was more a toy thing than a cartoon transformation thing. He could be a shade darker. The classics actually drove me crazy because the nose needle didn't stay in place and the legs had a gap in jet mode. But since your opinion is different then mine, you are wrong and I am right.

    Only somewhat related, is Rodimus really that much better than hot rod? The arm set up in bot mode for hot rod just drives me crazy, I can't really pose him the way I want.

    Rhinox for the show, Dinobot for the toy.

    Guys please don't vote for the characters already in the HOF for the characters.

    I voted for Cheetor character wise cause he's long overdue for this and has been such a staple of the franchise even when they weren't into doing beasts.

    I wouldn't call the ears "fake kibble" given the fact that they look basically nothing like the part they originally turned into.

    So I guess the old Hall of Fame was thrown out so we have to spend the next 20 years voting in those same characters again?

    Dinobot and WFC Cyclonus.

    Anyone else just... not feel compelled in the slightest to indulge in this 'new' Hall of Fame, knowing the previous one was just thrown out?

    Nah, Megatron deserves a double vote.
