Default 2018 Transformers Hall of Fame voting

Looks like the Transformers Hall of Fame vote is happening again this year, and there are two categories, with select (American) fansites privately invited once again to participate in round one.
This first round has fans submit nominations, to be sent in to Hasbro by the end of this week. Since this was only announced on the 12th, the cut-off for the posting of nominations is just a mere two days (which is some time tonight, our time).
The second round will come later, and should have Hasbro posting up a short list for each of the two categories, for fans to vote on in some way. (probably facebook again this year)
The results of that vote are likely to be announced at SDCC next month.

Category 1 - Favourite Transformers Fictional Robot character
Category 2 - Favourite Hasbro Transformers toy of 2018


(just like last year, they are wanting people voting on the best toy of the year, before the first half of the year is over... which misses out on a lot of toys, including the annual Titan toy)

Only select American fan sites can participate in the first round huh? dang. I can't participate in part two either because I deleted my facebook account. If I could vote, my picks would be:

Cat 1: Devastator (no combiners are in the Hall of Fame yet. Having been the first combiner to appear in the original cartoons, Devastator deserves the honour)
Cat 2: PotP Optimus Prime

Agreed, but Unicron would be a big draw to a wider age range.

The winners/inductees for 2018 were announced at yesterday's Hasbro panel at SDCC...

HALL OF FAME
Favourite Character - BLACKARACHNIA
Toy of the Year - ROADTRAP AND BATTLESLASH
Hall of Fame inductee 2018 - JOHN BARBER

(I actually thought Unicron would win the character category... while the toy of the year was probably close between Optimus and the Duocon pair. It would have been Predaking if this was done at the end of the year and included all of the 2018 toys. Hasbro should do the fan-vote in February for the previous years toys, to give people time to get the last few of the year, and then maybe sit on the results until SDCC.)

Good to see Blackarachnia win, she was my choice.

I guess I'm the only person that feels Battletrap could have been much better than he was.

I like the concept of Battle Trap, I agree, there is something off about the execution. I find the combined mode hard to articulate meaningfully, especially the legs.

John Barber has done a lot for transformers in Comics over the last decade, a worthy entry. I'd still like to see the writers of the original TV score be recognised.
