    Thanks Erector for giving us more shelfwarmers.

    Seriously,why not just have Tomahawk from HfD be in the title?

    Because Erector was a good toy, an interesting character, and deserves the hall of fame nod. That's why.

    It's comments like these that are leading people to believe this is a joke. Regardless if Erector really is one of your favorite characters, there's a huge possibility this might turn into a joke.

    Too bad Erector is facing some "Stiff" Competition................ That's what she said.
    He totally is in the same club as Heave and discharge though.....

    Just you try and tear him down, he'll just build it back up.

    VVV
    If he's just kup as a chopper, then why not just put kup in the hall of fame?

    Erector doesn't need all those weapons. He just needs one big gun to do the job.

    Same goes for Tomahawk. He's like Kup if he turned into a copter. Plus, he's called Tomahawk named after a type of axe. He's got missiles, guns, and sword blade claw weapon. What's not to like?

    Erector can rise above the competition, seriously, he has a shot and he can go far in the polls. Erector may not have any fiction to his name, but so what, he's a hard guy to write because of his round personality. If anyone can get ahead due to being loved by so many, it's Erector. The Hall of Fame will be great with a little Erector inside of it. It's a little hard to get an Erector for some of us, sure, but if you check the right websites you can get an Erector of your own rather easily.

    Yes, this is very serious.

    The reason I support him is because the vote is a vote for all late G1 toys, but Erector stands above them all. The Micromaster base idea was an amazing gimmick. I would rather have Erector, then all of the newer toys combined.

    Erector or nothing.

    I don't know what you're talking about, but I expect everyone to take Erector seriously. Erector is not one to mess with - things can go painfully wrong otherwise.

    I'd give a vote for Erector.

    Heck, he's special enough that he DID get a kind of update in the AllSpark Power line:
    Mudflap (Movie) - Transformers Wiki

    So what if that was sold as a Decepticon and had a Decepticon cyber key? I got one, and I replaced the Con symbol with an Autobot rubsign, placed a new Autobot symbol on that yellow square on his chest, and swapped the Cyber Key for the one that came with Universe Dropshot. Bam! Instant Classics Erector.

    Man, I thought long and hard about doing that, I really wish I had now, it would really have added some Omph to my classics collection.

    If only i had a toy's R' Us' Earlier back in 2006-2007. Curse the fact it's a exclusive. but good thing about it is that there might still be alot of soon-to-be erectors to go around.

    I realize this is a Fuzzy thread so no one's gonna break character, but it's worth noting that the only reason Erector's never had his name changed is because they never made a new one. The Erector building blocks would prevent Hasbro from using the name again, and... the other reason. See also: The Cybertron Mudflap Movie Redeco

    Erector sets are a series of shafts and structural nuts, actually, not blocks. He could get a release in the UK and Canada though, where Erector sets go under the Mechano name.
