In spite of a promising nomination, we are sorry to report that Transformers have been defeated in their bid for a place in the National Toy Hall of Fame. The robots in disguise were among twelve finalists which also included Rock ’em Sock ’em Robots and Care Bears, itself a tremendous achievement. However, in the final event, Transformers was beaten out by worthy final selections Dungeons & Dragons, the swing, and Fisher Price Little People.
Check out the full report via Pressconnects. We’d like to remind everyone that given the wealth of toys out there the National Toy Hall of Fame has a very wide field to draw from, and even securing a final twelve nomination is a massive recognition for Transformers. We anticipate that one day Transformers will join this august pantheon, and we look forward to that day.
