    Well, our Customs contest, "In Honor of Vector" is over. You, the members of TFW2005, have spoken loud and clear. The winner of the TFW2005 Customs contest is Viagra Prime! VP is the lucky winner of TFSource's donated e-Hobby Laser Ultra Magnus from Takara-Tomy, and he will also recieve a Henkei "Classics" Megatron that was donated by fellow board-member, Sidecutter.

    You can view Viagra Prime's thread that contains all the images of his winning entry by clicking HERE.

    Viagra Prime said that he plans to sell his winning Laser Ultra Magnus, and donate all of the proceeds to vector's wife, who is our board-member, lita 1.

    Congratulations, VP!

    I want to thank everyone who participated in this event! Every entry was fun to watch unfold, and see through till completion. I also want to thank everyone who voted over the three finalists, and also to thank TFSource for donating the Laser Magnus, and Sidecutter too.

    Cool! Thanks to TFW2005 for hosting this contest. If it were not for the contest I probably would not have made the custom so thanks for the inspiration. Also thanks to TFsource.com for the Laser Magnus, to Sidecutter and Capturedprey.com for the Megatron, and to all who participated and voted. Of course a special thanks to Vector for inspiring us all. There were alot of great customs and I'm sure Vector would have been proud of all of them. :thumbs2:

    All the entries were solid, the finalists especially. But this one was definitely deserving of the win.

    Congratulations, dude! And much respect for the decision to help lita 1 out.

    Sorry, but the custom will not be for sale. I have a personal preference of not selling my customs. As an alternative (and as mentioned by Redline), I do plan to sell the Laser Magnus prize and donate the proceeds to Vector's family.

    Congrats VP! you are truly a master at this stuff. The inspiration flows to me and my work.

    I (on the other hand) have a personal preference OF selling my customs (hehe) I got my satisfaction when I make it, and the photos stored on my PC take up less room than 3 closets and shelves full.
    (shameless plug incoming...)
    That being said, my Ultra Magnus is on ebay (you can click under my avatar)

    Also, I'd like to add, that my UM does in fact finally have a trailer which can be seen here: http://www.tfw2005.com/radicons-customs/repaints-and-minor-mods-4/ultra-magnus--car-carrier-164423/

    Once again VP, congrats!!!! and I hope to see more of your work, and one day meet you at some botcon thing.

    Congratulations VP! Good job!

    This contest was an awesome show of support for someone most of us never met but did in fact interact with and enjoyed his online friendship just as much as someone you hang out with in person

    It's great to see everyone support a fellow board member in this fashion. It helps you realize we all share a special bond through our obsessions/hobbies/interests and that we are accepted and/or understood by a large group of people outside of our offline buddies who may think we are a bit too into TFs
