Re: Transformers Featured In Mensa's Bracket Challenge

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).

You would think that Mensa could put together a better voting page. This one is clunky.

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...

Sorry to all bronies if my 'ROFL' (ROLF :oops: ) comment was out of line.

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 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.

Dude, I really don't care if you're a brony. I could care less, just please, keep those "things" away.
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.
And that's fine. It's entirely possible to still be a fan of something and have reservations. Not all Bronies let the franchise dominate their lives, just as not all Transformers fans let the Transformers run their lives. ;)

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


Apologies for the late post. And that wasn't every brony, btw. Not everyone in the fandom is a blabbering obsessive with no life. Just as not all of us Transfans are blabbering obsessives. In every fandom there's extremes. Us Bronies just happen to garner more attention for it, due the unusual nature of the fandom. And it doesn't help we're a completely internet-generated community. There's bound to be more depraved and/or obsessive skidplates abound.

Minor out.

I meant the Unicron of their universe.

I have been watching Prime, so I know very well that the Unicron in the Prime universe is Earth.

Why would I bother voting when it's abundantly obvious that there is no contest? When my little ponies can turn into something, I'll care.

Not sure if this makes me a Brony, but one night when I couldn't sleep, I was browsing Youtube and found some MLP eps. Before I knew it, I've gone through half the first season.

I've no intention of ever buying the toys or seeing anything MPL-related on my shelf, but the show was strangely addictive. Reminds me a lot of recent Japanese "slice of life" anime featuring school girls, such as Azumanga Daioh, Lucky Star and K-On!.

Never bothered to start a Facebook or Twitter, but I'm rooting for TF's.
