    Some of us over at TFans where thinking about doing a TF Custom of the Year Award because the Transformers community tends to get shunned at other custom sites. We want to get all the sites together for this.

    Here's the idea:

    TF Custom of the Year 2005

    Categories:

    Best G1/G2
    Best BW/BM
    Best Armada/Energon
    Best Cybertron
    Best Alternators
    Best G1/G2 Homage
    Best BW/BM Homage
    Best Armada/Energon Homage
    Best Paint
    Best Articulation
    Best New Customizer
    TF Custom of the Year

    Best G1/G2, Best BW/BM, etc. Would be any custom made from those toyline molds regardless of characters. I would consider Masterpieces to be G1. Example: G1 prime repainted as Scourge.

    Best Homage categories would be any custom of a character from that toyline made from another toyline mold. Example: Alternators custom of BW character.

    The rest are self explanatory.

    Entry guidelines:

    1.) It would be open to any customs finished between 1/1/05 and 1/1/06.

    2.) Start a thread at each website for entries.

    3.) Submit as many customs as you want. Submit 3-4 pictures of your custom.

    4.) A few impartial judges (preferably Admins from sites: Super Fire Convoy, Kalidor, Tony, and hopefully Remy) will chose the 4 best in each category.

    5.) Start poll threads at each site for general public voting. Hopefully it’ll get frontpaged and get a lot of people voting.

    6.) Tally up the votes.

    7.) Announce winners.

    Timeline:

    Entry Submission: April 1st to April 15th
    Judges Nomination: April 16th to April 22nd
    Voting: April 23rd to May 6th
    Announce Winners: May 8th

    Prizes:

    I don’t think we need cash prizes. But I’d be will to donate some extra Cybertron figures I have. I was also thinking about making a little custom that would make a nice award. Also, recognition works for me.

    These are just my ideas. We could expand on it. Let me know what you guys think.

    I like the idea, however I think you'll need a bit more time to get the word out, and market it. Maybe by the end of april? Perhaps put this in the general discussion thread, or ask an andmin if they can front page it, to see what others think? I dig it though, I hang out on the kitbash thread the most

    I'll check with the rest of the staff here but I think it would be a fun thing to do.
