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'.

I regarded this place as a safe haven away from ponies. I hoped I would never see or hear of them here. Now? It's getting infected as well.
