    Crap. Maybe TFW should be renamed "Transformers Continent 2005".

    Sony could not legally open this contest up to anyone other than the U.S.

    Could you enlighten me as to what legal ramifications exist in making this contest open outside of the U.S.?

    It's more just curiosity as I've never seen a contest of this sort open to other countries outside of the U.S.

    Lol. I've seen the movie 10,000 times and I've never realized that Sludge's eyes bug out like that when he gets hammered. :D

    Can everyone else maybe post some in a seperate thread just for laughs?

    There are some funny entries already, I think it might be a tough contest to judge.

    While I can't say why, I will say you are pointing the blame at the wrong group. Sony busted their asses to get this open to everyone. In the end, they couldn't do it.

    And people who visit here know we try to be fair to everyone, regardless of country. If I recall this is our first contest EVER to be U.S. specific. However, we will have something that everyone will be able to enter soon afterwards.
