Wazzzzzzpinator Wins!!

Waspinator has won a spot in the Transformers Hall of Fame this year.  He was the fans choice entry.


A true champ.

Being a fan of Beast Wars, I think this is pretty cool news.  This marks the second year that a Beast Wars characters was picked by the fans to enter the HoF.  Last years entry was Dinobot.

I like Waspinator.  He's not my favorite Predacon (that happens to be Tarantulas), nor do I own any figures of his (and none of Tarantulas for that matter).  But, he's a very likeable character.  Mostly because he's funny.  In almost every episode of Beast Wars, he is maimed in some way.  He's pretty much the Predacon punching bag.

Waspinator also appears in the sequel series, Beast Machines, which I also enjoy though I've heard most people don't.  

Also, trying not to spoil the shows too much but, comparatively, Waspinator ends up being the luckiest of the Predacons.

Waspinator happens to be in the series "Animated" as well.



This time Waspinator started off as regular, ol' Wasp, a rogue Autobot whom was charged with treason and escaped custody.  He was later mutated into the Waspinator above.  Sadly, he only appears in one episode in this form.  While, he wasn't meant to be comic relief like the BW Waspinator, he does actually get blown to pieces like his counterpart.

Anyway, congratulations to Waspinator on his success.
