HERO: Jean Grey's Phoenix Fire

Though Jean’s loyalties where almost always her own. She clearly tended to do good when she was with the X-Men. Here you can see her in classic green and yellow spandex. Mmm hmm.

Hero or villain? (I'm not a big Marvel guy, but from what I do know I get the feeling that it COULD be either. It is entirely possible that I'm missing an obvious indicator in this case due to my ignorance.)

Are you sure? The properties suggest that they are. Maybe he just didn't embed them the same way?

Hero, as noted in the title.

Yep they're Flickr files. I've embedded them the same way I always do. :/

Not sure I was editing this post on a couple other forums. It's possible it was added in after the original post. I tend to do that. I'll preview and post and then find something that I've missed in the preview mode. :/

There changed them to the fancy version so you can find Flickr. XD They do look nicer with little foot notes added by the "Share" option, rather than the plain URL.

My personal thougths so far, if nobody minds me putting them out there: (and these don't include my mech, by the way, and also it is including Flickr names, not forum names)
Best DC mech: madLEGOman's "N.O.R.A."
Best Marvel mech: Zane_Houston's "Atlas".
Best DC minifig: I think it's Fat_Tony_1138's "Mr.Mxyzptlk".
Best Marvel Minifig: SPARKART's "M.O.D.O.K."
Best mech: madLEGOman's "N.O.R.A."
Best Minifig: SPARKART's "M.O.D.O.K."
Second best DC mech: a tie between MacLane's "Wonder Woman's Invisible Mech" and Ted_@ndes' "Raven's Shadow Beast."
Second best Marvel mech: The_Lantern_Rouge's "Hulkbuster Hawkeye".
And I have to add, the 4th best DC mech: Bartosza6m_(war-C)'s "Mad Hatter's Mech".

I don't mind. I'll be keeping my list to myself, though. I kind of like the anonymous nature of the voting here. Especially in a case like this, where there are so MANY great entries, that I'd feel bad leaving out so many, even were I to list my top ten. It is going to be a tough vote, and I'm glad I won't have anybody wondering about why I made my selections. It'll be hard enough justifying them to myself. ;)

With all the great mechs showing up at the end here, I'm just hoping I can still make it to the brackets. Chances seem good to me NOW, but it's only Thursday.

>>>>> PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT <<<<<
Photography note: Ideally, your submission photos should be in landscape format (wider than it is tall) or cropped to a square (do I really need to explain what a square is?)


Just thought I'd remind my fellow competitors, since the main images for 21 of the 39 entrants (so far) are in portrait format...

It should be no secret that the brackets will look like below, with square images (only 8 entrants are in the ideal square). If you don't crop them yourself, flickr will from the center... as it stands now, we'll be seeing a lot of pictures of mechs with their heads and feet chopped off. :facepalm:

Good luck everyone, and I look forward to the flood of entrants in these last days before the deadline.

This is a revised version of my previous mech since my old batman mech didn't have an enclosed cockpit. Please disregard my old post! If I find a way to delete it I will. I hope this one is acceptable:

OG Batman Mech:
Batman returns in his original colors to save the day. Multiple jet engines allow this mech to fly at high speeds and hover for extended periods of time. Designed for speed and agility, this batman mech is as capable on the ground as it is in the air. If any enemy manages to hit the elusive batman mech, its armor is there to protect against radiation and explosives. Armed with twin EMP guns, batman is able to remotely shut down all enemy mechs and electronic vehicles in the area. Shoulder mounted cannons are available for heavy artillery, but as always, batman does not shoot to kill.

Pilot: Batman in his old school colors

OG Batman Mech (with enclosed cockpit this time):

Here is my entry for the contest! I made my entry for the "Hero Team."

This is Dr. Strange's Astral Projection Mech!

The Mech mystically forms around him. From within the Mech, Dr. Strange can unleash a barrage of Electric Mayhem on the Mechs he is battling.

Mods, can we take new pictures with better lighting and format?
