Congratulations, Colin!

The competition was really tough this year in the Botcon art contest and I was holding my breath as I sat next to Colin during the panel when they announced the winners. The amount of time and effort he put into his entry was clearly evident and he deserves tremendous credit for such an enormous endeavor. We just weren't sure he was going to win because there were some really really nice pieces in diorama this year. But then they said his name and after the initial shock, Zack and I cheered on this guy who has been a big part of our Botcon weekend. Back when I used to enter the art contest I'd pick diorama because it was my favorite category. So from someone who has a little bit of an idea how many days and nights of your life you must have poured into your work, I say congratulations Colin. (And thanks for the Rapido!)

You, of all people, should have Rapido. To quote David Tenant, "It's my honour."

Thanks for all the good vibes too. See you at some point today!

Good job. Any pics of what he made?

There's one at the very bottom of Botcon's Contest Winners page. When I saw it in real life it was overwhelming. Most people would stop at just one of those figures and it'd be a good entry in 3D figure. But they way he made a ton of them and incorporated them into this massive diorama was mind blowing.

I'm sure other sites will have pictures, too.

Huffer is brilliant!

The whole diorama was seriously rad.

Very happy for you, man! Well done.
It inspired me such that I'm almost thinking about writing my first blog entry since January.

Post-Botcon reports are kinda obligatory, man. Hey check your PS3 messages inbox! I figured out how to attach photos to messages on the Playstation Network so you now have 13 new P-mails.

Thanks for kudos, Nala! My friend Kellie helped me figure out to do it. He's a fave.

I use to say I didn't have any Munny transformers. By my count, I now have more than 50. Like Zack, I'm now set to update the site!
