Mech Madness Winners!

The polls are finally over and the results are in, and it looks like it pays to be bad. The Heroes put up a great fight but the Villains came out on top in the end. Here are the three winners as chosen by FBTB forum members:

In first place, zhouston‘s Atlas with Juggernaut at the controls:

In second, Trooper10‘s Wolverine piloting The Wolverine:

In third, madLEGOman‘s Victor Freeze and N.O.R.A.:

We’ll be contacting those three about the prizes shortly, but I wanted to thank everyone who participated and once more congratulate all those builders who made it to the bracket stage. These contests wouldn’t mean anything if you all held back, and you always manage to impress me.

Mech Madness Final Round All Week Long

FBTB Mech Madness 2012 – Secret Crisis

My apologies for the unexpected delay, but worry not. The final round is upon us and this time you will have until this Friday night to cast your votes. The polls got pretty close in the last round so I thought some extra time might be beneficial here. First up in the Winners Bracket we have Wolverine and Juggernaut squaring off:

 

(You can click on each image to go to their flickr page to browse more build photos). These two will be competing for first and second place, obviously. After that we have the Losers Bracket, with Hawkeye taking on Mr. Freeze:

 

These two will be battling for third place. As usual there is no prize for fourth place. So take your time, check out each mech again, then sign in to the forum and cast your votes!
