    I heard that next year, Transformers faces stiff competition from "Kickin' Can" and "Hoop With Stick".

    I'm pretty sure sticks, or 'a stick' was nominated for at least one year.

    What gets me is that Clue and paper airplanes ranked a bit below TFs at one point in polling (last checked Nov. 4) while poll-dominating Matchbox cars and Pez dispensers were not inducted. I'm guessing there probably wasn't a giant paper airplane lobby creating a last-minute landslide vote, so why bother with this polling at all if they don't appear to follow the results?

    I'm not going to get up in arms about this. TFs has been around comparatively a short time compared to a lot of other things on the list. It'll happened eventually.

    We'll get there eventually. I'm sure once all the iconic, retro toys get in there, Transformers will be one of the first of the relatively modern toys to make the cut.

    Having said that though, I have absolutely no idea what a "Wiffle Ball" is.

    What? How can you do this? It’s outrageous. It’s unfair.

    3P would be nothing without the real deal to copy from. Coattail riders, all of them.

    I guess, but these "coattail riders" are wearing much fancier clothes than the main coat itself.

    I suppose that depends on which main coat we’re talking about. For me it’s Takara Tomy’s Masterpiece line, the pinnacle of the last 30 years.


    In any case, if the Toy Hall of Fame is just now getting to wiffle ball and paper so planes, then it’s going to be quite some time before Transformers are inducted. Have they inducted rubber ball and hoop/stick yet?

    Yay, Clue!!! My favorite board game of all time! When I voted in the poll, Clue was way behind & I voted for it out of loyalty. I never expected it would actually win. Love it!

    I've never even heard of wiffle balls and I lived in the States for 3 years.
