I think beetleman might have a mental disability of some sorts. I'm not saying he definitely has but if he really does, you guys should be a little kinder to him. That would also explain why he says he is a 19 year old but his parents are overprotective. I'm not saying he definitely has but it's a possibility. Or he's just a 8 year old that says he is an adult.

What I got out of that was that Canada really wants to have a plague of locusts unleashed upon them.

@  Locoman : (21 May 2016 - 09:25 PM)

y'see, under canadian law all broadcasting corporations operate under a mandate that at least 40% of the content they broadcast must be Canadian content. Naturally, this applies to kid's cartoon channels as well, which is a fairly niche market these days. So animators slap together very cheaply animated flash cartoons and air them in the daytime hours to fill the quota. Hence endless reruns of Johnny Test, Almost Naked Animals, etc.

AFAIK it looked like Hot Rod and BW Megatron both got more votes then Erector.

At least according to Jeysie's compilation of votes.

A number of sites never published the results they sent in, and when the votes from sites that did were added up, Erector was close enough to the top five that he only needed a handful of points to reach the final vote.

It would explain all the weird F-15 colors and whatnot. Maybe a TF's color is an inherent property of their metal composition (or like an outer skin layer at least), and getting a paint job would be like us wearing full body makeup. Uncomfortable and messy at best, offensive at worst.

It's not like he won a popular vote or anything.

Or got a toy in the Universe line... was that before or after the hall of fame?

I'm not a fan of voting on peoples posts. it just seems very passive aggressive to click 'down vote' and not add anything to the thread. and up votes are exactly the same. to my mind the whole point of a forum is discussion and being able to just easily agree or disagree takes the discussion out of the equation.

Could be something inherent in the living metal that can only be changed by extreme messures.

Explosive Death and Complete Resurection is fairly extreme so that would give the tape decks a pass.

And the G2 alterations were Forestonite, a "magic" chemical that bestowes super powers. That could certainly alter "body chemistry"

Maybe changing colors is the equivalent of getting a tatoo for humans but over your whole body? Not impossible, but uncomfortable and undesireable to many? I know it's not a "serious" profile but when you look back it DOES seem as if TFs keep their "natural" colorschemes far more usually than they keep alt forms or almost anythinig else about them. Not always, but preferably...

Dinobot's Universe toy was before the HOF by a year. Keep in mind, though, that he was one of only two BW molds in the 25th line, and I'm sure a large part of why he was chosen was because his original toy kinda sucks. In other words, had 1996 Dinobot been up to par with most other BW toys, the "Predacon slot" in the 25th line could have gone to Tarantulus or Waspinator or whomever. Also keep in mind that other BW characters also got new molds that year without relying on an anniversary homage line - blackarachnia and Wasp/inator. Thinking about it, I'm sure one of the reasons Dinobot doesn't make the cut for extra-BW fiction is due to the higher prominence of the G1-based Dinobots, most typically Grimlock, who have been used much more in comics, toys, and animation than Dinobot has.

ZacWilliam, wishes this discussion was its own thread as it's much more interesting than the HoF junk...


It 's likely the outer layer of a Cybertronians' "skin" is composed of a "nanite-weave" which contain chromatophore analogues. These maintain a transformers' "Electronic Paint", which provides each cybertronian with its unique colourscheme. Spies, and other ne'er-do-wells have developed software which hacks the programing of their nanite-weave, to allow them to change their colours at will, using it for camouflage and deception.

It has been known for power surges to corrupt the programming of these nanites, causing them to create strange, and bizzare new patterns, with bright colours. This phenomenon is, of course, refered to as Spontaneous Recolouration.

Of course, when a cybertronian dies, and their systems go offline, the nanite-weave goes offline as well, and reverts to its factory-setting of "plain grey". This is often the most obvious method of diagnosing a dead cybertronian at a distance.

It's a kind of lunacy we rarely get to see with polls like this and the bio shows Hasbro were good sports about it. Besides, you know most of these guys are gonna get in eventually.

No, I haven't read this enitre thread, but do we know the Hall of Fame has any relationship to name licensing? I mean, does Hasbro have to keep the names they put into the Hall? Or could they let one expire (say, Erector wins) & not have to do something like yank the character from the Hall years later.

Also, does this Hall do anything to give Hasbro a greater claim on the name?

...

As for my vote, its going to Shockwave. Grimlock & Jazz have awesome toys. Waspinator's was good enough (at least compared to G1). Shockwave really only has his G1 toy, and a partial attempt in AEC (not the same character as G1 & is a bit fidley).

We need a new Classics Shockwave. Hence, my vote. Its the logical choice. /Vulcan

Which looking at that list I'd say Action Masters are the forgotten era, I'd sure love to get a Jackpot from a Jazz toy.


Also add Sparkcruncher to the Actionmasters list. And Botcon Slicer. And Botcon Double Punch.

And 2007 Movie Inferno was based off Tote. 2007 Movie Jolt Based off of Roadhugger. And Tread Bolt was based on, well, Tread Bolt. Then there was the "Detour" name applied to several foreign releases of RotF Dead End. Not sure how you'd want to count that, since the alt mode was very much MM Detour's in red...

...so Hasbro's chomping at the bit to expand into other eras when they aren't pimping the movies. The fandom should catch up, by recognizing those kinds of characters at times like these.

Jackpot from Jazz would be wonderful.
