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.
