That'll be the one that's three words long and still has the massive sig turned on then.

We've had an awesome turnout so far, guys! but even with all the votes we've gotten the standings are still really tight in some places -- I'm pretty confident I could tell you who the top five will be, but the standings are so tight that I've got no clue what order they'll be in. And the last four or five spots on the list could be filled by any of about twenty different characters, because we've got a lot of characters bunched up with only one or two votes' difference between them.

So if you haven't voted yet, you absolutely should -- it's not hyperbole when I say that your vote may well decide whether or not your favourite guys make the list.

When all is said and done I think there'll be a few surprises for us all -- in who makes the list, but I think even moreso in who didn't.

Yep, you definitely did. Possibly twice, if memory serves.

Windows 7 has been sufficiently better than XP I find I rarely need to restart the OS. Hibernates just fine.

As a good chunk of mine only ever really got a profile, there's very little chance... hoping the write-up digs into the the long tail of results a bit, I'm curious to see what other otherwise ignored and dispossessed characters stuck in people's heads and why.

Actually, just glancing quickly at your results...at least one character wouldn't be in the top thirty if you hadn't voted for him, and another one you voted for is one vote away from cracking the list.

I'll say this -- I'm floored by the breath of characters who've gotten votes. 296 characters have gotten at least one vote, and that number was actually higher before I rolled a few continuity-specific versions of characters up into "overall" categories because they'd only attracted one or two votes each. It just goes to show how diverse the fandom and its' interests have gotten over the years.

I know I tossed in few of my choices on the fly a week or two back. Well, I think I did. I know I had thought about it.

Wanted to come back and add in a few more, but now I can't recall all of whom I voted for.

I was cutting it very fine, but I managed to get my vote in -- though I didn't give a reason for all thirty characters. Four missed out because I couldn't think of anything to say about them. But I swear I like those guys.

No worries. The explanations are optional, not a requirement. Probably half of our voters didn't say anything at all, which is perfectly okay.

Out of curiosity, roughly what percentage went for the full 30? I found it really hard to go the distance myself (and my rationales got progressively rubbisher and rubbisher).

If I did two, I'd be surprised if more than a dozen made both lists. Some days I'm in a Wide Load mood, others I'm all about Searchlight.

TBH if there's not at least three Throttlebots on there it's all some sort of fix. Actually ridiculously excited to see the results; I'm sure if we all bombard Warcry with PMs it'll speed the whole process up. EVERYONE HAMMER THIS LINK.

Yeah, same here, some of my votes simply had to do with what stuff I've read/seen most recently and put the characters fresh in my mind, another week would lead to a completely different 30.

As I am with women, I am fickle when it comes to Transformers.

It's the last day folks (depending on what time zone you're in I suppose), so if you've been waiting till the last possible second, it is now!

About the same. Though it helps that you can browse the comic book shelf and see tha back covers of DVDs.

i did fill in the both boxes. Very shortly though.

I'm at work right now so I don't have the actual data in front of me, but a solid majority went for the full thirty. A good number of those seemed to run out of steam for the last five or so though, resulting in a lot of folks either giving up on the explanation side of things entirely or filling their last couple spots with admitted joke characters (no Wildfly votes, though ).

Thirty characters is a lot, so I'm not surprised that people had trouble filling up the whole sheet.

Actually, I'm pretty sure both of your lists were basically the same and that's how I spotted it initially.

"There's no way two people would vote for all these assholes! Cliffy must have forgotten he did it the first time!"

I found it tricky from the point of view that the more TF media we get - especially G1 - the more likely it is that a character's going to be either done until everyone hates them (Grimlock), get stupid characterisation (Scorponok) or get tethered to an abysmal story (Nightbeat, Sunstreaker). I'm not going to vote for Ratchet in case this gets misconstrued as admitting Infiltration exists.

Plus TF fans are basically James Roberts, or at least want to be. Optimus Prime? Megatron? Bumblebee? Soundwave? Too mainstream, I honestly totally like this quasi-obscure guy who wasn't in the cartoon that often because it shows I know Transformers.
