TBs TechPool 10 (Results) - Which 2008 TECHNIC sets, have you bought?

Another pool came to its end, after two weeks and above 450 votes.
Now we can compare how the preferred TECHNIC sets, compare to those people most bought in 2008.

The results were not much different from what I was expecting, however I would expect a few relative positions to exchange.
Most likely the results are influenced by the type of readership we have at TBs , which make them naturally closer to the previous pool results.
Nevertheless, from these results we can conclude more than half of those o bought a 2008 TECHNIC set, bought also the Excavator (8294) and/or the Off-Roader (8297).

The distribution is much flatter, revealing an higher purchase volume on the smaller sets as expected, but one thing is for sure, the absolute winners are the same!
And each set relative position in the voting, was exactly the same too.

What might also be interesting would be to do the two polls together, so you could see the votes normalised by ownership of the models. You can get a crude measure of this by dividing the favourite vote count into the ownership vote count:

(number of best set votes out of number of owned sets)

22% Mini forklift
30% Dirt bike
21% Dune buggy
47% Cherry picker
95% Excavator
59% Telescopic handler
91% Off-roader
38% Power functions set

...which is pretty much the same distribution as you already got for the best set vote, but interesting anyway I think! :)

Sure, next year I'll launch both polls together, to obtain that "normalized" view.

However it is assuming that every participant would vote in both polls, which the experience tells do not happen.

Also it is also expectable to have people voting for best sets, without having bought them or even any of them.
