    And yet, with a little help from the writers of the comic books (and a couple of the series writers as well), managed to establish an endearing and beloved mythology and cast of characters that has endured for more than 20 years, long after most people's fondness for the toy was discarded and kids became distracted by new fads or incanations of the franchise.

    Wow! I knew Prime had a shot at beating Baltar, but I'm really surprised that Obi-Wan beat Qui-Gon! Qui-Gon was like the perfect Jedi character.

    Baltar and Prime were neck and neck the whole way through the final 4. The biggest lead either one had through the past round was by 2.

    I don't understand half of that round. But then, I don't get why people like Transformers in any form at all. [face_monkey] Oh well. This round is beyond easy.

    Well, I think Prime is up so far because of the upcoming movie. It looks like I'll vote for my namesake.

    I'd still rather vote for Mal. [face_plain]

    I can't believe that silly cartoon got so far. Still, I'd be tempted to vote for it just to spite Obi-Wan. :p

    Quest put it a lot more eloquently than I would have (thanks for that), so I'm not even going to bother responding to that.

    As for Transformers being a "30 minute ad for the toy line", you can't fault it on that logic. You can name any major cartoon of the eighties and stick that label onto it. (He-Man, GI Joe, TMNT, etc.)

    And I'd hardly call this weaksauce:

    ETA: Oh, yeah. I forgot. Anyone who doubts the awesomeness of Optimus Prime needs to watch [link=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JVF36NWdaoQ]this[/link] video post-hasty. If that doesn't change your mind...well, then there's no hope for you.

    WHAT?! Baltar lost?

    Hear hear!



    So... I count 2 people in this thread who'd gone for Prime... and 7 who can't believe Baltar lost. What is this?

    Just for a heads up when we get the Favorite Fantasy Character Tournament underway there will be no Star Wars characters allowed into the nominations. The only reason they're in this one is that they were already nominated when I took over. My reasoning for not having them in is because this forum is specifically non star wars and so it should be non star wars characters only in the tournaments.

    The movie probably isn't the reason (especially since the movie seems to be doing a better job of pissing off the die hard fans more than drumming up support for it ;) )- like I mentioned a couple months ago earlier in this tourny, when Census & Games did a "Best Superhero" tourney, Prime actually came in second, above Spider-Man but below Batman; and this was sometime last year before there wasn't much of anything in terms of movie hype.


    Madness?

    THIS. IS. PRIMUS!

    Screw Prime. That should've been Baltar who won. Seriously it seems like most of the people voted for Baltar and yet Prime won? Just seemds odd.


    Needless to say I sure as frak hope that Prime loses in this round. And my purposely voting against River and Mal to make sure that Baltar made it to the final round was all for nothing. [face_plain]

    No worries. I've already got some good nominations ready to go for that.

    Quest, you rock, dude.

    You know, maybe I'd have a lot more sympathy for these kinds of people if they showed the same kind of sympathy for me way back at the beginning when one of the many characters I nominated lost.

    But they didn't, so...
