    ...our very own JARROD for his truly wonderful Masterpiece Jazz!!

    Also, our very own TGping won first place in the 2D b&w art contest (a picture of which I, unfortunately, didn't get. Hopefully one of the other members can supply one).



    Finally, our very own KINGBOTZ won 3rd place in the 3D Diorama contest with his "Pepsi Challenge" between Dewbot (which is AMAZING in person) and MP Prime:

    Thanks for posting this! It was such a great honor for my first ever Botcon!

    I really enjoyed seeing your Fort Max too. Really awesome to see some of the work I see on the boards in person. It's a shame there really wasn't more entries.

    Your Overlord & God Ginrai were awesome, as were a lot of other customs.

    Shame they're not getting more attention.

    Here's a couple I took, and one I got off Botcon's website. I had too much coffee that day, and couldn't take a still picture for the life of me, sorry... Now, I look at this incredible piece and think, "How the hell did this NOT place??!!" It also transformed, into a really bad-ass alt-mode. This should've at least won something, but it didn't even place. Even Payton's Fort-Max only got 3rd, as much work that went into that piece. Now there's no doubt in my mind something's dead-wrong going on in that so-called "contest judging."

    I just want to say that I met TGping at Botcon, and not only is he an incredible guy, but an incredibly TALENTED guy!!! I saw more of his concept artwork while I was there, and let me tell you, his talent and concepts will blow you away!

    That sounds a wee bit butt hurt, just saying. This isn't a thread to pick apart peoples work, so why don't we just congratulate those that won and leave the conspiracy theories elsewhere.

    Same here. I'd actually buy that Dewbot in a heart beat too.

    Maybe Jarrod can contact iGear and get that Jazz made :D
