PopWatch Duel: Seth Green vs. his 'Robot Chicken' cocreator Matthew Senreich

Robotchickenwar_lYou remember how the PopWatch Duel works: We ask two people for their picks on a certain topic. You decide whose list is better by casting avote in the comments section. They try to tell themselves that they don’t care who wins.

In honor of today’s DVD release of Robot Chicken: Star Wars — which just received an A- review in EW and, oh yeah, an Emmy nomination — we asked creators Seth Green (left) and Matthew Senreich (right) to each name The Five Geekiest Pieces of Pop Culture I Own.

It’s on after the jump.

Seth Green

1. The Muppet Show on DVD. I was on location in Canada, up late with insomnia — saw the ad & bought the entire series.

2. Lincoln Hawk action figure (pictured, in a photo Green took himself). From the movie Over The Top the best father-son, borderline homoerotic, arm-wrestling redemption movie.

3. Fred ‘Rerun’ Berry signed photo. Made out to ‘sweet j,’ an inside joke and an amazing item.

4. GI Joe lunchbox. Yes, I have the thermos.

5. Lobby card from Superman. The villians, trapped in the flying glass thingy from the Donner cut of Superman II.

Matthew Senreich

1. Over 100 original Atari games including Ikari Warriors, Warlord, Adventure and that crappy E.T. game.

2. A super signed Buffy the Musical poster.

3. A page of Joe Madureira’s original art to his first contracted work from Marvel Comics in Marvel Comics Presents #89.

4. Every issue of Wizard magazine ever. Specials included.

5. All the original Kenner Star Wars action figures (all of which have been opened). Including the C-3PO carrying case. Plus, eight Master Replica lightsabers including Darth Maul’s.

Okay, who’s the bigger geek (a term of affection)? Seth Green or Matthew Senreich? Vote now!

    There’s no contest. Matthew Senreich wins. Anyone who owns any collection including “every issue” or “all the original” action figures of anything is a class A certified geek.

  • Winona

    Matthew wins, hands-down.

  • Nancy

    I thought Seth had it with the Rerun autograph, but owning even one issue of Wizard magazine makes you top geek. Matthew takes the win.

  • MK

    Though I love Seth Green, I’m going with Matthew based on the fact that one of his items is actually memorabilia from a show SG was on (regardless of whether he was still actually in the cast at that point).

  • Emily

    Definitely Matthew!

  • Coach’s Mistress

    I’m going with Seth because of the Muppet Show. Matthew is certainly a geek’s geek, but Seth is in another dimension of geek world with the Muppets. Winner: Seth!

  • Ceballos

    “Over the Top” was BORDERLINE homoerotic? I agree, except for the “borderline” part.
    By the way, Matthew wins.

  • Trixie Firecracker

    Matthew Senreich is a bigger geek, but Seth Green will always have my heart.

  • Mel

    Well Matthew owns a Buffy poster while Seth was actually in the cast at one point….I can’t make an unbiased decision

  • LadyTiger

    Seth was in Buffy — he wins, no matter what Matthew has in his collection.
    BTW, did anyone see Seth on The View? He was promoting the Robot Chicken Star Wars DVD. I felt so sorry for the guy — those idiot women were completely clueless and it was the most uncomfortable interview to watch. I’m sure it was really uncomfortable for him to have to talk to those morons! Seth, we still love you, even though you had to go on The View.

  • BrandonK

    Oh my god, I’m so envious of the original Joe Madureira art!!!! He was my absolute favorite X-Men artist ever.

  • Mel

    Sorry Seth gotta hand it to Matthew Senreich to take the Geek title this time.

  • Sara

    Matthew wins! He got points for Buffy, then pushed it over the top with his vast collection of Star Wars memorabilia.

  • Dana

    Can’t make an unbiased choice cause I Love Seth !!!!!

  • Crystal

    Matthew, but Seth gets an A for effort.
