I got bruticus limbs at FP last monday and Onslaught on Friday. Huge mistake, I inserted an X1000 microprocessor in each one and a extra for Bruticus, and they mopped the floor with the rest of my CW collection.

@  BillBarclay : (08 February 2016 - 06:18 AM)

VOTING IS LIVE!

The Nominees are in!

http://www.hasbro.co.../discover/news/

QUOTE
TRANSFORMERS fans around the world were asked, who should be inducted into TRANSFORMERS Hall of Fame.




2012 Fan?s choice nominee: ARCEE

?I?m more than just a pretty face."



ARCEE has gone through many changes during her career as an AUTOBOT. From pink and white colors to a sleeker dark blue, ARCEE is one of the few female TRANSFORMERS to stand the test of time. ARCEE has proven herself in battle time and time again - whether it is against UNICRON, SHOKARACT or even JAHIAXUS. ARCEE has lost many partners during the Great War, but her most painful memory is losing her comrade CLIFFJUMPER at the hands of STARSCREAM. Two people she could never do without, however is her human friend JACK DARBY, and her great-nephew, RATTRAP.



2012 Fan?s choice nominee: MEGATRON (BEAST WARS)

?You shall vote for me. Yesssssssss."



Using the former leader of the DECEPTICONS as his namesake, MEGATRON orchestrated a plot to steal the Golden Disc, an ancient relic from the time of the AUTOBOT/DECEPTICON war. The disc led MEGATRON and his PREDACON crew to ancient Earth, where they, along with the pursuing MAXIMALS, reformatted into indigenous life-forms, instigating the BEAST WARS. After MEGATRON conquered the alien technology of the Vok, discovered the crashed Autobot Ark, nearly killed OPTIMUS PRIME, and gained control of the DECEPTICON warship NEMESIS, he was eventually defeated and returned to CYBERTRON by OPTIMUS PRIMAL. Once there, MEGATRON created an army of VEHICONS to help him conquer the planet. Unfortunately his beloved rubber ducky was left behind on primitive Earth.



2012 Fan?s choice nominee: WHEELJACK

?Statistically speaking I should be the winner."



WHEELJACK has built everything from magnetic inducers to immobilizers to gyro-inhibitors, and even the occasional DINOBOT. While his inventions often indeed do what they are supposed to, they just as often blow up. WHEELJACK is also a member of the WRECKERS, a division of AUTOBOT warriors who don?t play by the rules and often take on missions that others can?t - or won?t. When called upon, WHEELJACK serves as the chief weapons officer and ship?s engineer for the team. His personal ship, the JACKHAMMER, served as his mobile headquarters in the wake of the great shutdown of CYBERTRON. WHEELJACK had made it his personal mission to cruise the stars in search of lost AUTOBOTS, but specifically for WRECKERS who have lost their way.



2012 Fan?s choice nominee: RODIMUS

?Everyone knows I?ve got the potential to win!?



RODIMUS is young, na?ve, headstrong, and daring when it comes to his own safety in the field. Willing to push himself to the limit in order to get the job done, RODIMUS is known for conceiving highly dangerous plans to achieve his objectives. Believing that no bot should ever be left behind, RODIMUS will even put his own spark on the line to keep this promise to all who serve under him. Despite his immaturity, RODIMUS is considered an inspirational figure to many of his fellow AUTOBOTS, and some have even come to call him RODIMUS PRIME. Unfortunately, one time RODIMUS got in OPTIMUS PRIME?S way with disastrous results.



2012 Fan?s choice nominee: SKY-BYTE

?Who's the baddest shark around? Who's the smartest shark in town? Sky-Byte, that's me! ?



A proud PREDACON to the core, SKY-BYTE lead his warriors into battle against AUTOBOTS or DECEPTICONS. His desire to be in MEGATRON's good favor drove him - and sometimes he got lost. His skills are legendary amongst the PREDACON ranks. Legendary because SKY-BYTE rarely completed a mission. He has a soft side for poetry - a skill no one else has - or wants. If it weren't for SCOURGE and the DECEPTICONS, SKY-BYTE would never have strayed from the PREDACON cause. In his jealous rage, SKY-BYTE looked to the enemy for acceptance - including KOJI and the AUTOBOTS. Perhaps that is why the AUTOBOTS allowed him to remain free on Earth after the final battle - where he currently roams the ocean attacking illegal fishing vessels.

A pretty nice spred. I like how they continued the multi-dimensional bios and how they had some fun with them. If there were one single good thing to come out of the Erector debacle it was his Hasbro bio and these seem to largely continue that playful tone. (Edit: Shokaract glitch aside. Maybe she'll fight him in this years BC story. icon-arcee.gif )


-ZacWilliam, objectively I kinda wish Sky-bite's was a bit better written and didn't feel quite so much like someone threw his wiki entry into a blender. It could really stand a rewrite and smoothing out. But that aside, Cool. icon-hotrod.gif

And listing BW Megs credentials in a paragraph makes him look like the most impressive transformer of all time. Probably because he is.

Is this the year of a G1 fans choice? There's been the debate the last two years that characters like Jazz and Grimlock split the G1 vote, while BW fans could rally around the single non-G1 character. Is Sky-Byte going going to split off votes that would normally go to Megatron, or will the sheer awesomeness of Megatron going to dominate regardless?

Full disclosure, despite my personal Rodimus love left over from childhood, I'm planning to vote for either Sky-Byte or Megatron, but this issue is intriguing me.

Edit: Starfield: Great minds and all that, eh.

I'm liking the way Wheeljack's bio reads and hopes this bodes well for his season 2 appearances in Prime since I can dig the reconciled direction. I know it's effectively casting my ballot into the wind but I'll be pulling for Wheeljack as the great underdog in this race

Ok, the bios are making my inner English writing geek twitch something feirce. Here's an attempt at smoothing out Arcee's:

ARCEE has grown a lot over her career as an AUTOBOT. From pink and white to a sleeker dark blue, whatever colors she wears ARCEE is one of the most steadfast, brave and determined Autobots you'll ever meet. She has proven herself in battle time and time again - whether it is against UNICRON, SHOKARACT or even JAHIAXUS. Tragically ARCEE has lost many partners during the Great War, but her most painful memory is losing her comrade CLIFFJUMPER at the hands of STARSCREAM. Two people she could never do without are her human friend JACK DARBY, and her great-nephew, RATTRAP.

I'm guessing it's always been intended as the Jackhammer, but we learned about the toy well before it got named on the show.

I rather doubt anyone outside of a handful of fans remembers or cares about those non-entities, much less would consider them for a hall of fame award.

Arcee's bio is a good example of how problematic this merging of continuities can be. They take two characters both named Arcee and make them one person. I consider G1 Arcee and Prime Arcee to be seperate characters.
