Hi Transformers fans!
Its that time again to make your voice heard in the Transformers Hall of Fame for 2016! Hasbro is asking fans to help nominate inductees into the Transformers Hall of Fame within three categories. The categories are:
· FAVORITE TRANSFORMERS CHARACTER (Fictional Robot Character)
· FAVORITE UNDERRATED TRANSFORMERS CHARACTER (Fictional Robot Character)
· BEST TRANSFORMERS-RELATED MUSICAL ACT (REAL-LIFE HUMANS)
As you know, no characters or people who have already been inducted will be considered for nomination. A list of inducted characters can be found at the bottom.
We ask that you poll your readers to determine the characters and humans that they wish to be considered for each category of the Transformers Hall of Fame and share your Top 3 nominees for each category (nine nominees total) including the number of votes with us no later than 5 p.m. on Wednesday, March 9, 2016.
Please rank your outlets polling results list in order of who received the most votes for each category. All polling result lists will be combined together, each outlet getting an equal voice. The combined values will be used to generate the final ballot of three choices for each category. Details will follow regarding the official voting process in the coming weeks.
Winners of the final polling will be announced at BotCon, the official Transformers Convention, in Louisville, KY, April 4-7 7-10!
