• The Favorite Character category functions just like the general Fans’ Choice category did for the past 6 years, letting fans nominate whichever Transformers characters they’d like to see inducted that have not already been inducted. However, Combiners will not be considered for this category due to the Best Combiner category.
• No characters or people who have already been inducted will be considered for nomination. See the list below for the full list of awesome folks already in the Hall of Fame.
