    I vote that for the second Annual March Madness tourny when it hopefully takes place, we can leave out the Gestalts. In 1v1 matches, it is only so fair, ya know?

    This has already been discussed many many times and has already been taken into consideration for the future. I couldnt get everything perfect the first time around but trust me the second tourny will be a hum-dinger that everyone should love!!!!

    Oh, I'm not saying it brought the tournament down any. I'm loving this whole thing. It's just hard to see some of these guys losing, is all. Not your fault in the least.

    Cool, Cool.

    I think you and everyone who liked this one will absolutely LOVE the next one though!!!

    These last few rounds I think will be awesome though. I definitely see a couple of gestalts getting knocked the f out!!

    Couple? I see everyone except Predaking getting kicked off.

    I'm looking forward to Grimlock vs. Omega. I also want to see what both Primes and both ?atrons can do against gestalts. (I'm confident they all win). But what do I want to see the most? Shockwave vs. Starscream. GO SHOCKWAVE.

    Anyway, if all goes my way, we'll be seeing an Optimus vs. Grimlock and a Shockwave vs. Megatron next round. Can't wait.

    BTW, I've been a member forever, but haven't posted in the TF section in a while. Thanks for bringing me back.

    I can't see metroplex not taking this, I mean he can win damn near all these fights with one well placed step.

    Yes he is. Shockwave isn't one for MISB, apparently.


    Yes. If you keep in mind that once they get to his interior, all he can really do is tear himself a new hole to grab them through. Like someone said in the last round (sorry, can't recall who): Take away the transformation cog, what can he really do then?

    Not transform? If he's in robot mode, the removal of the transformation cog will only prevent him from transforming back into city or base mode. I highly doubt he'll need to transform in the first place.


    Overall, the contestant that I'm actually surprised to be here is Starscream, and if it was for a second chance (not Solo's fault), he wouldn't be here. Just the poll of public opinion I guess.

    thing is ...they wont get in. Metro fights in bot mode and not in city mode with doors wide open.

    this reasoning that they win if they get inside is so darn far fetched is funny

    I'm almost ready to hand it to Omega Supreme, though I'm thinking that Megatron, Galvatron, Predaking and Metroplex all have a shot at it.

    Predaking: A combiner... except REALLY FAST
    Omega Supreme: likely the strongest and most durable of ALL Transformers.
    Metroplex: Very BIG, lots of guns.
    Megatron: Strong, tough, determined... with an anti-matter blast that's hard to argue with
    Galvatron: Like Megatron, but apparently with ambiguous god powers from Unicron that make him totally cheap.

    Either a gesalt, Omega, Metroplex, Optimus, Megs, Galvy, or Shockles will be the winner.

    Megatron or Galvatron for me. Could Metroplex really stand up against Megatron tapping into the power of a black hole?
