This 7 day poll is to determine which 16 villains will make it to the tournament. You must pick your five favorites. The top ranked mechs will then be seeded into brackets and continue on to head to head polls next week.

... Some really hard choices here, so much good stuff. Good luck to my fellow diabolical genius designers. I think we're all gonna need all the luck we can get

Yeah, big rush toward the end there. My optimism about at least making it to the brackets has taken a hit. So MANY good mechs in this pool.

Wow! Exciting! It's a tough one to call: good luck everyone.

The hero/villain numbers are closer than I expected, there's very little in it!
Has anyone figured out how many of the mechs are DC or Marvel? I wonder if it's a 50/50 split.

Most importantly: Remember to vote. (And for this contest)

Good building everyone. Well played.

Does it track votes or voters? If voters, wow, that's a lot. If votes, still a decent amount, though it seems like some people (or at least one) didn't use all their votes...

So many good Mechs! I was surprised there wasn't more charter repetition among the villains. I can't wait to see who it is narrowed down too.

My poor Blizzard mech is doomed, especially if it gets to the brackets... :'(

Votes, not voters. And there usually is at least one person who doesn't use all their votes

I wouldn't count yourself out, I tend to vote for the underdogs models. Bigger is not always better.

With so many great mechs it's tough love voting for only five. Awesome job everyone!

@Mods/Admins: Would this be the appropriate thread to discuss the design aspect of the mechs or should there be a new one? Now that the entries are in, I'd love to hear about how everyone came up with their ideas, build features they like best, what worked, what didn't make the cut, etc.

if the builder started a thread in the moc spotlight forum, it would probably be better in that thread. if not, then here's fine i guess.

I see 2 of the top 3 MOCs here. Heros are going to have a hard time defeating the villains.

A friend of mine (Morninglory) is having trouble voting. It apparently just shows a red line with a question mark instead of the check-box. And when they tried to post a comment about it, it didn't show up right away, and so they were worried it might not show up until after the first week of polling. So I commented this for them. For me, the red line only showed up AFTER I voted. Any ideas as to whats going on?
