    Botcon.com has pics of all of the entries in this year's custom contest. My favorite of course is the Nova Prime by Dak. I also thought Spudwave is cute. Devastator's articulated combiners are awesome as well. The WST Springer looks great too. I have one on order in fact. BTW, if anyone knows who the winners are please post here.

    Check them out here.

    I'm sorry, but that horribly painted Bonecrusher made me crack up when I saw the little sign that says "Special Kids Display." That is hilariously misleading.

    I, too, spat drink all over the keyboard when I saw the "Special Kids Display" sign...

    Spudwave & Devas-Tater are excellently daft :D  But I'm with the majority, that Nova Prime rocks hard.

    Go Devs and dak!! Also, it's GREAT to see Steelskin with another custom (the Autoscout is his)!

    The Headmaster Jrs are really cool too. I like the RiD Sideswipe [to an extent] really well. :)

    Congrats Dak. Well deserved win. Unlike previous years where 2nd and 3rd were sometimes WTF, this year's 2nd and 3rd were pretty cool too. Though I think Devastator's articulated combiners should have won something. It seems the judges don't like his articulated combiners as his other ones didn't win previous years either.

    Congratulations dak!! Extremely well deserved win!

    Congratz to Kingbotz as well! Frenzy's a great figure. Perfectly suited to his construction style.

    The breakaway Magnus is a very nice figure but IMO it's more of a diorama. Looks like more of a "scene" than a toy anyway.

    I'd like to see more on the scratchbuilt Autoscout. It's cool to see customs of obscure one-time characters. Wonder if it transformers?


    The only one that ever won was his first Devastator right? I wonder if the judges kind of automatically pass over the newer one's because it's something they've seen before?

    Congratulations to dak, and to all of the other winners! GREAT work guys, GREAT work!

    Yes, it does transform. It is just nice to see something from Steelskin again. :)

    You're right, Dev did win for his articulated Devastator. I forgot about that. I believe that was with the previous botcon though, not funpub. The Hasbro judges are probably the same so you could be right about passing them over because it has been done.
