    The custom figure portion of the Botcon Art Contest were 3rd place: 3D HOS Bumblebee from paper (congrats Hi-Q!), a stuffed optimus prime got 2nd, and the half classics megs/half pvc ratchet got 1st place.

    I have to say I was pretty darned disappointed. That optimus wasn't even original as you can buy that optimus from the store that actually transforms and this one of course doesn't, plus how on earth did not only Wheeljaxx get shafted, but also Manyousfacture, and the guy who made the Wheelie and Cyclonus?? That Optimus shouldn't have even been in the figure category.

    I wasn't too happy with the art contest this year. There were some unique entries, ,b ut I felt like there was nothing tooooo new. I don't think the Cyclonus and Wheelie should have been there. They have been seen and known of for a looong time. plus they have been made to be reproduced. I would have loved to have seen more kitbashes there. I hope to have one done for next year.

    I think I missed the one that won first price, anyone have pics? [EDIT: Never mind, found it at the BotCon site]
    Still, 3rd prize is great! :)

    edit: Got a chance to look over some of the entries on the Botcon site.

    Wow. Who the fuck was judging this thing!? Like, the Ratchet/Megs is pretty neat, and the HOS Bumblebee is pretty wild, but...there are some jaw-dropping entries in there.
