It’s officially March and you know what that means- it’s Tournament Time!


It’s time for every self-respecting blog, entertainment site and radio show to trot out 64 of something for their readers & listeners to vote on.

Check out Vulture’s Sitcom Smackdown, eclectik’s Childhood Crushes Tournament, and of course our friends at Cold Slither Podcast’s Battle of the Fictional Bands.

Last year we partnered with Rediscover the 80s to bring you Stache Madness – a tournament to determine the greatest mustache of all time. This year, it’s Robo-Bracketology! We’ve established a field of 64 of the greatest robots from television, movies, comics and more.

It’s up to you to vote!

The first round seedings were randomized, providing great matchups such as:

C3P0 vs. Voltron

Bender vs. Vicki (Small Wonder)

and Robot Matthew McConaughey vs. Metalhead!


Head over to the UnderScoopFire’s Robo-Bracketology first round bracket to vote now!

UPDATE: the first round results are in, and second round voting is open now! Help up determine the Sweet Sixteen! Hit the VOTE NOW button below:

Knew you’d be rootin’ for him!

Also Dutch Mantell/Zeb Colter needs to be retroactivated into last year’s Mustache Madness. His stache is legend.

Oh my god it’s heavenly. If he was in it he’d have been final four easily.

I don’t see a single upset coming in these matchups…

Love it

Some interesting seedings you got over there … I’m certain who I want to win wont make it to the 3rd round

This totally kills the tourney Im running over on my site … curses!

I hit ‘randomize’ on the seedings (I think I put that in the intro). I just didn’t feel like taking guesses at the importance of 64 robots (plus I couldn’t figure out a way to make 4 regions of 16). Thanks for voting – I gotta check out your tourney!

I want a Dynomutt, Vision, Servo, Crowwww Final 4

Vision would have to make a comeback!
