At least I can see where the 600 US bucks is going in this case. The MP line looks more ridiculous by the day.

@  Maximus Ambus : (22 July 2019 - 07:09 AM)

It's ridiculous. I'll stick to Armadacron

@  unluckiness : (22 July 2019 - 06:13 AM)

If anything, shipping is going to make the actual toy's price look affordable.

@  Pennpenn : (22 July 2019 - 02:28 AM)

Its like, $550 ish in US money (so probably about $800 for my Australian self) and is taller than TR Fort Max. He's gonna be a hefty boy.

@  TM2-Megatron : (21 July 2019 - 10:05 PM)

Damn, that Unicron looks big. Not gonna be cheap

@  NotVeryKnightly : (19 July 2019 - 01:17 PM)

It seems like, with these kind of things, anything not TF-specific is either in an existing thread or just not discussed since they're not part of something deemed important enough to get its own thread already.

@  Benbot : (19 July 2019 - 12:45 PM)

Yeah, but it's for Transformers specifically

@  Gryllid : (19 July 2019 - 12:39 PM)

There is. It's called "SDCC 2019 thread"

@  Benbot : (19 July 2019 - 12:24 PM)

no general SDCC thread?

@  Benbot : (19 July 2019 - 12:08 PM)

I never even bothered to see it.

@Sabrblade Depends on when you're here. I used to have the backups happen once daily, now I have them happen once per hour so you might often see a hesitation at the top of every hour for 30-45 seconds.

I'm not eligible to win, but here's my bracket anyway:

 

bracket-mine.jpg

 

I'm predicting a surprisingly strong showing for Armada Sideways, based on how popular the guy seems to be around these parts, and because of the shocking Computron/LioKaiser finals last year. But I'm saying Overlord still takes the win, because, well, I want Hasbro to make me an Overlord. I want Takara to reissue me one, too.

Ok, here we go!
 
I really, really wanted to put a push on for Pointblank. Then I found out who he would have been up against in Round 2.
 
Oh well...

 
You don't think he can beat Slapdash?  :)

Heh! :p

I have a feeling that Overlord is gonna tear through the early brackets like he tore through Super Ginrai, Garrus-9, Springer's face, and the Lost Light!

I'm not a man of many words.  When I do have something to say, though, I'll try and make it worth your while!

Glad to see this is continuing, I'll fill out an entry. Will probably track in an excel spreadsheet again too (should be easy to modify last year's).

 

Are you planning to score it 1 point for every matchup regardless of round? Really should make each round double points of the round before it... otherwise the total points are already half over after the first round and there's not the benefit there should be to correctly picking the winners who go far. That's how pretty much every real March Madness bracket works, anyways....

 

I'm super stoked that you're on board for it again this year!  I'm pretty much planning to crib your Excel sheet for scoring this year, but let's see if we can't just coordinate that so we're not both doing it.  Also, your analysis and interesting facts about the popular and interesting trends from the submissions was awesome!

 

For scoring, we should probably put this in the first post, but we'll do the following, similar to last year:

Vector Sigma 64 - 1pt

Transforming 32 - 2pts

Cesium 16 - 4pts

Elite Guard 8 - 8pts

Functionist 4 - 12pts

Cybertron Championship - 16pts

 

This is the way the annual basketball tournament bracket I play in scores things.  It's good because it ramps up the points for later rounds, but isn't a straight doubling from one round to the next, which means you can't just win it all by only picking the right final four or the champion.  You have to get a bunch right earlier in the contest too, so it really rewards overall bracket correctness.  In many cases picking the right loser is just as important as picking the right winner, and keeps interest higher throughout the contest while lots of other scoring setups become totally pointless after the first two rounds for all but a small handful of people.


ALERT: Everything is fine.

Well, uh, the one side says brains and the other says brawn. I assume we were supposed to do a battle of smarts with the left side brackets and a battle of might with the right side brackets? I guess I should confirm this before I submit...

It's going to be popular vote again.  "Brains" is because they're all head- or brain- masters.  "Brawn" is because that's a typical other half of that duel.  Brains and Brawn are themes, not the intended basis for voting.  Then again, people base regular NCAA basketball brackets on way weirder things.  Some by jersey color, some alphabetically.  So you could build a bracket in weirder ways if you want.  But the polls will be open and basically amounts to "who's better liked by Allsparkers who vote on this?"  But as we saw last year, trying to guess the whims of the board won't necessarily get you a win either.

I will admit I voted for the Seacons winning just becuase 'combiner team vs single dude' seems like it'd only end one way til them vs Pm Optimus.

Maybe you just need to start campaigning. Hey, it's just a popular vote, all you have to do is convince other people that Crosshairs should be their guy.

Here's my bracket for this round

 

OrionsMayhembracket.jpg

 

I based my picks upon the fact that I felt that the powermaster and Targetmasters were at a bit of an advantage with having a two-3 man team vs the Headmasters kind of being a bit of a symbiotic relationship. I know not exactly but it's my bracket.  I view Brainstorm and Mindwipe being front runners with their abilities until they come up against a more formidable foe. The brawn side was a bit tougher to choose but in the end I felt Crosshairs' experience be it not quite as much as Primes but still fighting with Prime Kup and Ironhide in the tough days made him a worthy foe and after beating Prime, Prime did the honorable thing by lending Crosshairs his powers.

 

It's a fantasy world and I can dream.  Go Crosshairs
