i think I know who's winning first at Botcon again

I met Shane of Kingbotz.com at last year's Botcon. He built a five foot tall Devastator out of Tonka trucks and took first place in the Botcon 2006 diorama contest with it. I realized two things after staying up till 3 a.m. in the hotel lobby talking with him about his ideas for future projects. The first was that my feeble attempts to win anything in the Botcon art contests would be futile unless I could build a life size transforming lawnmower. The second was that at my age I was a dinosaur, too old to be staying up till 3 a.m. in hotel lobbies talking to young guys about Transformers. Well, Shane has put teaser pictures up on his MySpace of his latest project, a seven foot tall Bruticus. If this is what he takes to Botcon I am relieved I am not there embarrasing myself with my usual robots made of grocery bags and toilet paper rolls.

What sad is I'd probably buy a robot that could turn into a toilet paper roll.

My entry this year would have been a two foot tall cassette tape made of cardboard. It would have turned into a robot rooster named "CockBlocker".

Hasbro should make a Devastator like that. Do you think he'll be in the Transformers sequel?

Boy, I hope he installed a fleshlight in that Bruticus, 'cause no woman would ever want the kind of man who builds seven foot tall statues of gay robots.

Well Rob, I've heard that the movie's producer Tom DeSanto has said he's got ideas on how to introduce the Constructicons in the sequel. Who knows? I'm not sure if there'll even be a sequel. It is still theoretically possible that the movie bombs big time so any sequel talk is a bit presumptuous at this point.

I don't think he builds these things for the ladies if you know what I mean, Hoop.
