Mensa's website has posted a bracket challenge of toys from all eras of recent history. 50's to present and those toys they consider timeless.

Pick your champion
How do you pick 64 toys when there are thousands to choose from? It wasn’t easy — we excluded board games of all types — but we think we came up with a collection of worthy competitors that represent every facet of the plaything kingdom. There are four regions — Timeless, Pre-1950, 1950-1980, and 1981 to Present. Each region is made up of 16 toys, seeded 1 through 16, based on the strength of their resumes. In the first round, the top seed from a given category will face off against the 16th seed from the same region; the second seed will challenge the 15th seed, and so on.

After that, the challengers are in your hands. All winners are chosen by YOU, the readers and, for the first time, the general public. Why should we have all the fun, right? Examine the full bracket and a synopsis of each toy on the following pages.

Voting criteria: In short, there are no criteria. What makes the greatest toy? If you opened up the Millennium Falcon on Christmas morning when you were 6, that likely ranks very highly for you. Feel free to be objective, weighing longevity, cost and number of units sold. We also encourage you to vote for the Teddy Bear simply because you still have your childhood friend sitting on your bed right now, some 40 years later.

Voting Schedule: First round voting begins on October 15. At that time, you’ll have the chance to vote in any and all first-round matchups. Second-round voting will begin on October 22. Round 3 will begin on October 29, and so on. You may vote for the winner of a match only once, so choose wisely. Voting for the Finals begins on November 19. The last toy standing will be announced in the January issue of the magazine and online.

Screw ups: Part of the fun is the discussion, so sound off to http://www.twitter.com/mensabulletin or Bulletin Letters, and let us know what we left out, what toy was seeded too low (or high), etc. If you hosted a selection party, created bracket pools with your coworkers, or made voting a family event (all of which happened last year), we want to hear that, too. Send in your photos of completed brackets or selection parties. We’ll post them to Facebook and Twitter.

Share the fun: You can vote only once per matchup, but that doesn’t mean you can’t try to convince other people to vote your way. Track the fun on Facebook and Twitter. Forward our posts and tweets to get your friends in on the action.

Ready? We are too! The 2012 Mensa Bracket Challenge has begun!


Lincoln Logs, Slinky, G.I.Joe, Rubik's Cube, He-Man and our personal favorite: Transformers! It's truly an honor to have Transformers be considered a contender in this challenge, to be noticed by Mensa. Just goes to show that a simple business idea can turn into something grand, something that crosses generations. As you can see,anyone can vote, so vote Transformers and get your friends to vote! Let's show 'em how much love Transformers we have out there!

Keep your optics tuned to Seibertron.com for the latest news!

Cool, but it was really hard choosing between the box and the wagon.

Agreed. Calvin could use the box as a transmogrifier, time machine, or duplicator, but his wagon took him and Hobbes on epic wilderness voyages and to Mars that one time...I ended up voting box on behalf of every cat I've ever owned.

And I voted for wagon because of my personal enjoyment of it, and my son's enjoyment of it as well.

My cat would definitely have wanted me to vote the box as well.

Calvin and Hobbes... ;)^

After a dominant victory over Tamagotchi in the first round of Mensa's Bracket Challenge the Transformers now face a much more formidable round two opponent in My Litte Pony. A epic battle years in the making! Click here to vote.

Transformers
1980-Present - Seed 4

The boys' version of the Cabbage Patch Kids, Transformers set the toy world on its ear in 1984. Anyone and everyone just had to have these "robots in disguise." They could transform into everyday objects, usually vehicles or weapons, and a cartoon series and, eventually, films followed, turning a whole new generation on to these toys.

My Little Pony
1980-Present - Seed 12

These tiny colorful horses each came with its own unique symbols on its flanks. No one says those symbols were branding, but, c'mon! Poor ponies! Girls didn't seem to mind, though, and for a decade My Little Pony enjoyed great popularity, as did the horses' many accessories (each sold separately).

I'm a hardcore brony. I love the show and the fandom. I'm reading pony fics, I'm reading fan comics, I save hundreds of pictures. I even have a few pony toys of the curent gen that represent my favorite characters.

HOWEVER, this is the TOYS we are talking about here. As a hardcore brony, it pain me to say that the pony toys usually suck mighty balls. Especially the older gens. I have nearly 1000 Transformers in my collection for a reason. These toys are AWESOME no matter the generation. I dont read TF fictions, official or not. I dont save fannart. I just watch the animated shows and the movies. Still, I discuss Transformers and all my spare cash go to collecting Transformers.

So, my vote will go to Transformers.

What do you mean by this? Do you mean you don't read the comics or the books or anything that isn't a motion picture? If so, you are missing out on so many world's worth great stuff (and not so great stuff, but that's to be expected from any medium). ;)

I love ponies, and I'm enjoying Friendship is Magic far more than TF Prime, but damn the toys don't even compare to the Transformers! The only way that Transformers will lose this is if hordes of bronies swarm the site and vote.

Sorry for being stupid, I said "if". :lol:

I used to be a Brony, and then I had what alcoholics refer to as a "moment of clarity" . I came back to Tranformeser cause the transformers fans are not as obsessive and all encompassing as Bronies. There are some Bronies that is all their life is Ponies. There is no room for anything else, and they have a misguided sense that that is all there is to life.
I'm not that hardcore and never will be. Transformers fans I can at least talk about other things with besides Transformers. Whenever the Hub posts ANYTHING on their status, hordes of Bronies will flood the thread with ponies this and ponies that.
Heck during the Aurora shooting, Bronies could not stop being a fan for one second to act like humans and observe a little respect for the victims. No they still had to post ponies this and ponies that about people who died in the theater shooting!
In the end I realized I lacked the qualifications to be a Brony, I have a life. xD

People can vote for who/what they want.

However, I will say that it seems odd to mention voting for Ponies on a message board devoted to Transformers.

...jus' sayin'.

Now this is just rudeness and bullying, whether you're kidding or not. Why should either of you give a care about what other people like? You're the ones making the big deal about it, not them. This site has plenty of Bronies on it who are also hardcore TF fans. No one's forcing either of you to join in with them, so leave them be. Not everyone has to like the same thing, or even hate the same thing. People have different interests between one another because everyone is different. You don't like MLP, fine. But the biased persecution of those here who do needs to preferably stop. I am not a mod, so I have no power to do anything about it. But I can let myself be heard as a disgruntled individual who is sick of seeing blind hatred spread between one another. Fact is, there are Seibertronians who are also Bronies, whether they are vocal or not. Don't like it? Well... oh well.

Agree, there were a couple of funny comments that seemed like just some light-hearted humour, but it got out of hand...

I never even heard of brony before this thread!

Trust me, while there may be Bronies here, there aren't enough to overthrow the theme of this site being Transformers. ED started as an MLPFIM site; I can't see this site changing into one without Ryan either doing it himself or turning the reins of the site over to another who makes the change instead of him.

Besides, most of the Seibertronian Bronies only speak of MLP in topics or situations that pertain to MLP, like in this topic. The rest of the time, it's Transformers first, and non-TF stuff in the lower-tiered General Discussion Forum. :)

Well, I wouldn't know of any sites it has "taken over", but what I have seen has been mostly new websites being created for it or existing ones containing Pony Talk to their own sections or individual discussions.

As for things like Usernames, Avatars, Signatures, and such, that's considered personal content and can be whatever the individual user wants (within reason, of course). The main websites they appear on ,however, remain constant with their original theme as decided by the webmaster. :)

As far as this site goes, most of the Bronies on here were Transformers fans well before the Brony movement began, so they know how and when to talk Transformers and such. ;)

If you ever get the chance check out the Hub's facebook page, They can't post a non MLP status without having at least for or five Bronies spam it with Ponies. I mean they even spammed a memorial to the Aurora theater shooting victims with Ponies! WTH!!!

That was my wake up call there, I had to decide for myself right then and there, is this is really the fandom I want at the top of my list or even on my list at all. I looked at what was my top favorite fandom when I was a kid growing up in the 80's and it sure as heck wasn't MLP. It's the franchise that's still been going strong since 1984!
Sure MLP was around in the 80's but there weren't Bronies I assure you.

Well, the sad truth is that every fandom has its share of extremists (just look at any topic here pertaining to the live action Micheal Bay TF movies, which attract both the extreme lovers and extreme haters of those films), but one must still remember that one collective type of fan does not represent the majority whole, and I've yet to run into one of those extreme Bronies in the years I've been on this site. ;)

I mean, look at this topic, for instance. -Kanrabat- and doomboy536 admitted to being Bronies, but they chose to vote for the Transformers with justifiable criticisms towards the MLP toys. Even Bronies can recognize issues with the things they like.

And mirageandjazz1197 is the only one to have openly said they voted for MLP. One person. That's all. And his post wasn't like one of those crazy ones you mentioned seeing on the Hub's Facebook and such, just a simple "cuz I'm a Brony." Nothing wrong with that, yet he got chewed out for it not long after. That just wasn't fair.

I don't care if people are bronies. Primus on the other hand may feel threatened.
*looks at Primus* I'll keep an eye on him.



Oh Primus has survived worse!, He did share an apartment in college with Unicron and Shelly Winters! xD
Not to mention having his name used for the planet setting of a bad 90s He-Man cartoon. :lol:

Dude, I really don't care if you're a brony. I could care less, just please, keep those "things" away.

Yeah. That one was pretty bad. Adam reveals his secret! WHAT?! HE'S NOT ALLOWED TO DO THAT!

"BY THE POWER OF ETERNIA!!!" -_- It's Grayskull you idiot.

Serious, why didn't they just make He-Ro: Son of He-Man like they had planned?

Okay, seriously, they're plastic toys, not the Plague. Aren't you a little old to still believe in cooties? >:oP

I actually like the show, I watch it with my daughter. I just found that I was liking the show more than she did and that's an issue when your raising a child. Someone has to be the parent. I can see dedicating your life to that fandom if you dont have a family, but I do and I have to put them before ponies or even Transformers.
