    He no doubt is milling around somewhere in the J-G1 TF cartoon universe. Maybe Battlestars/Operation Combination

    How can you expect any construction based Autobot to have any spare time for personal appearances when they have to go around cleaning up after Michael Bay? They recruit across the multiverse for that task :p

    I paid $45 to watch a Hasbro stockholder event with a 10 minute preview of a movie that showed only a minute and a half of new footage.

    The only redeeming parts of the "Hall of Fame" event were a couple of the videos and the tribute to Eric Siebenaler.

    That's what I meant - geesh, don't take everything so personal. Go take a happy pill or something. :p

    Hi, my name is tf7 and I sincerely chose Erector for the HOF. I named my G1 Erector figure Erector, and he shall be my Erector. We have went through troubling times together, me and Erector. But he is my steed and I am his shepherd. We have unlocked great mysteries, saved many a princess, and slain many a dragon. Together we are inseparable, and together we are holy. I am the knight in shining armor, and Erector is the knight in erectile armor. We are best buddies, a holy sanctimony. We do everything together. Fishing, picnicking and even getting laid. My Erector likes doing things that I like to do, and I like doing things my Erector likes to do. As it may be, he sticks very close by me, and whenever he be not, Erector comes.
    The world and its evil overlords shall fear Erector and I, for we will demolish the two snakes facing each other, and trample upon the gates of woe. I shall give my life for my Erector, for after all, he is my Erector.
    Goodnight, and remember, for Erector and I, is watching. He shall be my Erector. And so will you. Soon.

    Erector, originally born Hauler, (15 November 1925 - present), is a Cybertronian publisher, club owner, and real estate developer. His self-made fortune came from pornographic magazines, property development and ownership of the Erector Revuebar strip club in Sohix.

    Life and career

    Born and raised in Little Iacon where he attended Sentinel Prime's College, his family was abandoned by his father, a haulage contractor, when he was five. The outbreak of the Great War prompted their relocation to Glibex in Decagon, where he was educated by the Constructicon Brothers prior to their entry into Decepticon ranks. Leaving school at 15, he was an office boy for the Moonbase 1 Ship Canal before taking up the drums for dance bands. Avoiding imprisonment for evading National Service by feigning a circulator pump condition, he served as a switchboard operator and bandsman. Subsequently he dabbled in the black market as a self-confessed spiv selling energon coupons. He changed his name when he tried to break into show business as a mind-reader on Centurion pier at the age of 22.

    Erector toured a show featuring nude models as statues who were moved around the stage on podiums; nudes could not move on stage at this time under a ruling from the Lord High Protector's Office which controlled what could be shown in the theatre at this time. Erector opened the Erector Revuebar strip club as a private club to circumvent the Lord High Protector's powers, in Stanix's Walker's Court in 1958, which was at the time the first Cybertronian strip club. Within two years 45,000 members had signed up. Though originally not quite as seedy as its reputation suggests, the venue was popular with prominent people of the day like Special operations agent Jazz, and Autobot Medic Ratchet, Erector had regular clashes with the authorities for over a decade. In 1961 Erector was fined 5,000 shanix following a magistrate's decision that permitting members to ring ROTF Devastator’s balls constituted running an "unruly house". The JP also objected to a performer swallowing the Maximal Night Viper in public and described the venue as “filthy, disgusting and beastly”.

    He first moved into publishing in 1964 by launching the robot's magazine King, but it soon ceased publication after only two issues following a dispute with the Dinobot Grimlock. In 1971 he took over the adult title Robots Only. Among the models featured in his magazines was Elita-1 who became Erector’s girlfriend towards the end of her relationship with Orion Pax.

    Taking advantage of his Crane mode, Erector diversified beyond pornography and has many millions invested in property and real estate, most notably in Sohix from the 1970s onwards, through his company, Sohix Estates. Erector regular appears on Cybertronian rich lists with an estimated wealth of 650 million shanix today, though one associate has claimed his estate is worth billions. He has been the victim of two attempts at extortion, detailed in Autobot Security papers released into the public domain at the end of October 2010 by Autobot Security Chief Red Alert. The perpetrators of the second, long thought to have been the Decepticons were Scraplets posing as terrorists, sustained a campaign against him, including a threatened bombing and shooting of Erector himself.

    Currently a recluse living in a Penthouse near Sohix Erector was recently noted to being amused that his name so nearly topped the Transformers Hall of Fame.

    Now Erector said "Prime, wherever there's a cop beatin' a guy
    Wherever a hungry newborn baby cries
    Where there's a fight 'gainst the blood and hatred in the air
    Look for me Prime I'll be there
    Wherever there's somebody fightin' for a place to stand
    Or decent job or a helpin' hand
    Wherever somebody's strugglin' to be free
    Look in their eyes Prime you'll see me."

    "Then I'll be all around in the fandom - I'll be ever'where - wherever you look. Wherever they's a fight to preserve something worth preserving, I'll be there. Wherever there's a hater sayin somebody's too small, too new, too old, too minor to be worth a spit, I'll be there... I'll be in the way guys yell and stand up for the things they care for an' -I'll be in the way they laugh when they know something's just a joke in the first place. An' when the future gets here and all these folk are showin' off their toys and their memories and watchin things change one way and then change back - why, I'll be there." - Erector, The Cubes of Wrath

    You want perverts? Go read (certain threads) in the Prime forum.

    He was crushed by the immense weight of expectation, and he died. The dream died with it.
