Could WW Megatron Transform? or was it stuck in robot mode?

If I were a judge, that would be the deciding factor for me between a beautiful repaint and a nice looking scratch build.

And to be fair, the CHP Prowl did have police lights added to the top, so it wasn't just a repaint :wink:

Well, the idea was taken from a scene from the Beast Wars show so I can't fault the idea any more than cake toppers. I think both were really good, I just think TFmaster's setup was a lot better.

WTF! The cake topper... AAARRRGGGG!!!!! (brain aneurysm)

SOAB! Someone please post a pic of TFMs Menasor as it was at botcon so we can all see who should have taken either first or second in that contest, because really, it and a five foot devistator, thats the only real contest. And yea, the prowl is a good idea for a repaint, and MAYBE he did it well (although it really doesn't look like it even took that much repainting if you ask me) But in NO FREAKIN WAY does it deserve second. MAYBE third, MAYBE.

Oh wait, just saw the pic of that alternator Bombshell, no, Prowl didn't deserve third.
till all are one.

Devastator took pics of it in tank mode. I'm sure he'll put them up soon.

That Batmobile was awesome! As bad as they were, I still liked the Michael Keaton Batman movies and that Batmobile was the best out of all of them. It was dark and not too flashy. I want to see alt mode pictures!

Some one at the con (one of the dealers) got some pics of alt mode. It wouldn't sit together correctly for some reason. Hope nothing was broken. I'll bring his buisness card with me tommorow, he said he'd be posting the pics on his site. When i get the chance I'll make corrections to it and beg someone to borrow a camera. I'll have a gallery asap.

I just called it the Alt. tim burton batmobile. Didn't come up with any kind of specialty name or anything for him. It's funny i barely heard anything about it till i started carrying it around the floor on sunday. I did get to see a few kids faces light up though. That was well worth it.

Yeah, it's odd that two repaints of Prowl beat out TFMaster's War Within Megs.

But the same thing happened to me in Chicago in '03. I had that Trypticon-vs-Minicons/Micromasters/WSTs diorama if anyone remembers seeing it. It got edged out of Second place by a Beast Machines diorama of BM Deluxe Primal (the first one to come out--the really ugly guy) collecting marbles and putting them in a wagon, titled "Save the Sparks." I mean, hey, it was cute...but not a lot of work went into it. Still got third though, so people liked it at least

And first Place did go to a scratchbuild Megs blowing off Ironhide's head from the movie. It even lit up--pretty rockin'. :)

Ah well. We recognize you guys for your work. Congrats to both of you. :)

Damn. I totally mismanaged this year's convention, despite it being my third big one. I hardly hung out with the famous people at all, and I didn't hang out with any fan artists or anything. Next year... *sigh* I tried to mingle with random people, but that didn't work out very well.

Well it's official...

...TFMaster is now the widely *unrecognised* hero of TF customisers. ^_^

Seriously though, it's not cool - he puts all that effort into an amazing, transforming, COMBINING group of Alt. Stunticons - and then he gets beaten out by a statue and a wedding cake topper!

Aaaaargh... what are the judges actually judging on? The work and effort and thought that goes into these things, or whatever is biggest? I mean, how does that statue even count as a diarama? Looks more like a fancy display stand to me...

Still - three cheers for TFMaster, Lobo, and all the other Transtopia participants this year! ^___^
