Week 6 of Round 1 ends tonight. The results will be announced early this week and Round 2 will begin!
Fans took nearly 720 characters and have narrowed them down to 240 that will be in Round 2. With 12 monthly slots, 4 quarterlies and at least 1 convention exclusive in a subscription year, Round 2 by itself has enough characters to go almost 15 years!
So now we narrow it down even further, working our way towards the top character choices for a potential 2016 MOTUC lineup.
Here is the chart of how the Round 2 playoffs are shaping up. It's missing the Week 6 data which will be added early this week.
And here is the playoff poll chart to show how the playoff schedule will run.
Round 2 will consist of 2 weeks (Week 7 and Week 8). It will be four polls each week. 30 characters per poll and the top 10 from each poll will move on. When it's over, fans will have narrowed the list down further to the top 80 characters for Round 3!
So if you thought some of the voting was tough in Round 1, you haven't see anything yet!
Scott Neitlich has let us know that Mattel will be watching the results of this unofficial fan poll playoff. Please spread the word. And, most importantly, have fun!
