Bender got another vote! YAY! And best of all, it came from me! Well, if all PEELers vote for Bender, he'll get in for sure...well, at least all the PEELers that visit this thread.

Optimus Prime leads with 50% of the votes.

Bender only has 5% of the votes.

Keep voting PEELers.

It's not like he must win. From previous inductions, you can see that more than one robot made it in. Even if Bender doesn't beat Optimus, which was one of my childhood heroes, Bender could still make the hall.

Sigh, I miss going to Carnegie Mellon and having some forward motion in my life.  Those were good times.

Oh yeah, and robots...great.

I have just voted for both optimus and bender as well as suggesting Mega Man be added to the ballot, may the best robot win, and trust me, the robots take vote or die very seriously
