Tom Cruise sucks but I really did enjoy Edge of Tomorrow

@  Benbot : (02 December 2016 - 03:57 PM)

What? They made a new Mummy movie and cast Tom Cruise? I love Cruise, but isn't he kind of expensive? Kind of stupid to rely on his star power to boost a new franchise instead of...like...good writing? I hope it had both, but I'm not holding my breath.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (01 December 2016 - 11:36 PM)

Now if only I could get one of my GoG games to work right (well series of games) :(

On the subject of recalcitrant TR voyagers, does anyone else have an issue with Sentinel Prime's legs staying together in space-brick mode?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (30 November 2016 - 04:19 PM)

I was about to say.. I have no problem getting him to stay together in any mode. The horns was the worst thing for me. But I got that fixed.

@  unitremover : (30 November 2016 - 12:26 PM)

...and I just figured that out too

@  unitremover : (30 November 2016 - 12:24 PM)

Oh, hey, I figured it out. Now if I can just find a way to get his upper and lower body to stay pegged together in robot mode I'll be in business.

@  TheMightyMol... : (30 November 2016 - 12:12 PM)

Cold showers.

@  unitremover : (30 November 2016 - 12:11 PM)

Oh, what's the trick to getting his horns to stay down?

Alolan baristas say the darndest things

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (30 November 2016 - 08:26 AM)

I like Alpha trion. Just gotta see if his horns will stay down now that I learned the trick.

@  Robowang : (30 November 2016 - 07:55 AM)

Alpha Trion is awesome. Fun transformation, beefy robot mode, sweet sword, amazing headsculpt, and great colors.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (30 November 2016 - 05:48 AM)

Why? Alpha Trion is pretty cool, even with some flaws. He reminds me of BW2 designs.

@  unitremover : (29 November 2016 - 11:34 PM)

I should've listened to what everybody else said about Alpha Trion and not gotten lured in by the sweet siren call of a new toy evoking Vector Prime

@  Msol : (29 November 2016 - 10:12 PM)

Hot damn Astrotrain is way better than I was expecting.

@  BlackMax : (29 November 2016 - 06:32 PM)

@  ShadowMan024 : (28 November 2016 - 06:27 PM)

No no no, it's SPELT "Petsmart," but it's pronounced "Throatwobbler Mangrove."

@  Dracula : (28 November 2016 - 06:23 PM)

It's pronounced "I can't go here with my wife because she'll cry when she goes to the cat adoption area"

@  Bass X0 : (28 November 2016 - 05:02 PM)

Is "Petsmart" pronounced, "PetsMart" or "PetSmart"?

In 2010, Hasbro inducted humans and robots from the worlds of toys, entertainment and CYBERTRON into the inaugural class of its TRANSFORMERS Hall of Fame, honoring more than 25 years of ?robots in disguise? action. Now in its third year, Hasbro is once again turning to fans to help finalize the 2012 robot inductee class.

Hasbro?s internal panel of judges has chosen three iconic characters to induct into the TRANFORMERS Hall of Fame in 2012?Heroic AUTOBOTS JAZZ and GRIMLOCK, as well as evil DECEPTICON SHOCKWAVE. But we need your help to determine this year's fourth robot inductee!

The winning character will be announced at the TRANSFORMERS Hall of Fame ceremony on Saturday, April 28 at BOTCON, the Official TRANSFORMERS Convention in Dallas, TX.

The TRANSFORMERS Hall of Fame was created to honor those influential in building the iconic entertainment brand, as well as the actual ?ROBOTS IN DISGUISE.? The inaugural induction ceremony was held at BotCon 2010. TRANSFORMERS influentials Bob Budiansky, Peter Cullen, Hideaki Yoke, and Kohjin Ohno were members of the inaugural class, along with five notable robot characters that are a part of Transformers lore. The previous robot honorees (who are ineligible for the fan-voted slot in this year's ceremony) are:
OPTIMUS PRIME
BUMBLEBEE
MEGATRON
STARSCREAM
DINOBOT
IRONHIDE
RATCHET
SOUNDWAVE
WASPINATOR


First round nominees are due by March 1st, so let's get this rolling!

(Also keep in mind that we asked Hasbro and BW Megatron is a different character than G1 Megatron....Not to sway any votes!)

Please clearly type your nomination, and separate it from your discussion of the Hall of Fame. For example:

My nomination: BEAST WARS MEGATRON

Here is why. Or why I like the previous nomination as well. Or maybe I'm posting a joke here. Perhaps it's a complete non-sequitor. Whatever this is, it's not my nomination, which I've clearly labeled and is easy to see.

FINALLY. Been waiting for this. Grimlock, Jazz, Shockwave are "finallys" too. They deserved to be in long ago. Taking them out opens things up nicely. BW Megatron probably has it sown up this year, but honestly I want to think deeper than that... even if it ends up being moot.

My Nomination: Omega Supreme


-ZacWilliam, Seriously considered the Aerialbots or Insecticons but I kinda a feel they need in as a team rather than individuals. Jetfire/Skyfire would also be a top choice but Omega just barely beats him for me. Part of me would love to nominate Scrounge just because I love him and the Marvel Comic but I don't think he'd get any votes beyond me and after the Erector debacle Hasbro is probably not eager to see anyone who isn't a legit big name.

Now I wonder if Hasbro would let anyone be inducted twice, as part of a team and as an individual (like Eric Clapton). I can't think of any team members other than Grimlock that REALLY stand out though...

Nice to see that everyone nominated in the past 2 years is now officially in (with one exception that I'm grateful for), that should give us an interesting field this year. Which brings us to...


My nomination: Blackarachnia

Crafty, independent, seductive, lethal, and unpredictable. In the small class of female Transformers, she stands out, and the fact that she's had 2.5 incarnations (I count Airachnid as a half, BA was clearly the inspiration for her) is a testament to that.

(I fought against nominating another Beast-era character, but I can't think of anyone else who I thought has had a lasting impact on the franchise yet.)

The Hasbro choices are pretty much no brainers, and as show why voting for them in the past was pointless, they were shoe-ins anyway.

My nomination: Blackarachnia

She was the first female character Hasbro made a toy of, and from starting out from the humble beginnings as a redeco, she eventually got her own original molds. Blackarachnia has also managed to appear in two separate universes. As a character, she has received a ton of character development and growth in both incarnations, more so then a lot of other well known characters.

My nomination: Rhinox

The heart and soul of the Maximal team, he kept them in good repair, kept the equipment up and running, guided them spiritually, and was the heavy hand when a smackdown was required. Also, he won the Beast Wars for them by ramming a shuttlecraft down Megatron's throat.

That's not really a fair title, as Thundercracker, Starscream, Rumble, Frenzy, Laserbeak and Buzzsaw could all lay equal claim on it.

That said, Skywarp and Cracker are both really good choices I didn't think of.


-ZacWilliam, they go with Wheeljack, Mirage, Prowl, Sunstreaker, and Sideswipe as eventual shoe-in IMO...

My nomination: Arcee.

First regular female character in G1, also had incarnations in the Beast Era (via a con exclusive), the Unicron Trilogy, the live-action movies, and Animated...and now Transformers Prime has given her the spotlight in a big way. Honestly, I was ambivalent about the past versions of the character, but the first season of TFP made her my favorite.

I should have said first unique redeco for the Decepticons, as in something that didn't show up in Diaclone or Microchange. Buzzsaw, Sunstreaker, and Trailbreaker are the others.

RAVAGE

First Decepticon to join Megatron, first Transformer to ever have a speaking role in TF fiction, best G1 guy to appear in BW, only Decepticon to get two Alternators and one of two to get his own non-redeco mold, and only Transformer to be canonically labelled as containing a recording of the soundtrack to "Cats".

Ravage is the best.
