Voted for Transformers, feeling more hopeful of winning after beating Lego. Didn't think Transformers would make it this far
That's what happens when you get fansites like Seibertron.com which have 500,000 unique visitors per month behind something like this.
Amusingly, Transformers has gotten less and less votes each round, until round 5.
Round 1 (vs. Tamagotchi): 1214 vs. 394 (this was before Seibertron publicized it)
Round 2 (vs. My Little Pony): 1049 to 160
Round 3 (vs. G.I. Joe): 640 to 249
Round 4 (vs. RC Cars): 217 to 158
Round 5 (vs. LEGO): 444 to 429
In fairness, there has been a decrease in total votes for pretty much everything each round, and I think it's true that a lot of us owe it to Seibertron that TFs have gotten as many votes as they have despite the overall decreasing numbers. I would forget after each round without Seibertron's reminders, and none of the other TF sites seems to be reporting on this. However, it kind of backfires at the same time because a few of us did vote for LEGO last round. Also, LEGO was a tough opponent so it probably inspired more people to vote either way than in previous rounds.
So bottom line, out of those 500,000 daily visitors, maybe 150 have regularly voted in this, at my estimation.
