This week, we’re doing a little something different with the Major Spoilers Poll of the Week. In the past fights between characters have been hypothetical, rarely have we been able to see who would win in a battle. That’s changing as we put two robots in the ring to see who will win!

Printed with the MakerBot Replicator 2, two identical wind up robots (except that one is red, and the other is blue) will face off against one another, and the first one to get knocked over is the loser.  Your job this week is to pick who you think will remain standing.  Then, next week, we’ll post a video where you will see if you are right or wrong.

VOTE!

    • Also, psychology tells us red is likely to win this poll. It is the first option (primacy bias), and there is psychological evidence suggesting a human preference for red versus blue. Though me pointing this out also biases the result.

  1. Plainly robot red. Red is the best color. Look at how passionate and aggressive he is! How could he not win? Go Robot Red!

  2. Blue with be the winner! His cool calm fighting style will make him unstoppable. Blue will cool down Red in no time, and then Red will be taking a canvas nap!

    BLUE RULES!!!!!!

    RED DROOLS!!!!!

    After seeing so many posts, this became such an easy decision and that’s the clear underdog blue, and we know everyone loves a good underdog victory!

  4. Red. Clearly when something mechanical is painted red it gains a few horsepower, thus it will over power the lowly blue.

    I’m holding out for the actual contest to be Matthew vs Adriana Boggle game that was promised. As such, I’m not going to choose a side in this poll since I don’t know which is which.

  6. well see, red has the weight advantage, and can use that against blue in case they take the fight to the ground. but blue has the longer reach, and therefore has better striking power if they stay on their feet. so it really depends on whether or not red can close the gap between them and….

    …oh wait, they’re literally the same plastic robot from the same mold. crap.

  7. Blue will win in this battle because it is associated with the color of good, and good always beats evil (red) except in a world where colored robots fight each other, thats when evil always wins! So technically red will win, but i want blue to win, so blue

    The cool blue logic of the Azure-bot will come through and overcome the fiery nature of the Crimson Dynamo, at least, that is what I will vote for.

    DO NOT TRUST THE BLUE ROBOT.
    HE IS MALFUNCTIONING.
    ONLY THE RED ROBOT CAN PROTECT YOU.
    ONLY THE RED ROBOT CAN PROTECT YOU FROM THE TERRIBLE SECRET OF SPACE.
    DO YOU HAVE STAIRS IN YOUR HOUSE?
    THE RED ROBOT WILL PUSH THE BLUE ROBOT DOWN THE STAIRS.

    THE RED ROBOT IS SUPERIOR.
