    Idea from Don

    I support it 100%, so I thought I'd start this petiton to hopefully convince the guys running the show to include a tribute to Bill. So far the general opinion is to name the kitbash award to TFMaster Award.

    My hand's raised

    RIP Bill

    EDIT:
    Thanks for the support every one please continue to PM me your name so I may add it to the growing list.


    Known to most as the TFMaster, Bill Koshorek was a kind and generous man, held in high regard by all those who knew him or of his amazing work on customizing and kitbashing Transformers. Bill not only won numerous awards for his work, he has also inspired many others to explore their creativity, seeing things from different points of view.

    God yes. the customs section isnt gonna be the same without him. he was a big part of what made it so cool. its gonna be horrible not seeing his amazing work on display ever again. a tribute would be great to show just how much everyone loved seeing his work.

    *Raises hand*

    That'd be great. He was one hell of a great guy, and he took kitbashing to a whole new level with his site, and was an incredible asset to the TF community.

    I'd love to see the possibility of some of his customs shown at the show if that would be possible.

    I'd be happy to bring the ones I got from him - Custom Black Masterpiece Prime - I call him Optimus Scourge ;)  and the Alternator Arcee he made me for my fiance (her board name)

    If we could get the word out for others lucky enough to own any of his customs who are attending and willing to bring them, I'd love to see that. If the word was spread, I'm sure we could get a little section to show off some of his mastery.

    *Also raises hand* The idea has my full support.

    The greatest respect would be to take it one step further and possibly create an award to be given at BotCon...it could be called "The TFMaster Award" in honor of Bill.....crap...I still miss him.

    I'm in.
    Also; Pete (Sinclair), if you see this, could you please have a word about it with the rest of the council?

    Edit: I just posted this on the official TFCC forums, in the thread there about Bill:
    There is a link to this thread, where it says the board name. Hopefully the Botcon council will take notice.

    Oh definitely.

    Hope he gets an "official" tribute though, and with all of us rallying it should at least get a heads-up....

    So sad to see someone go so young :(

    I'll be raising one with you, mate.

    And I second the idea of having the customising award for BOtcon named after Bill.
