Arch2b's Transformers/Mini-Z Photo Contest

Every good Tranformers fan knows about the new live action movie be released this July.

In this spirit, I would like to sponsor a contest for the best Mini-Z/Transformers photo contest.

What does this mean exactly, i was wondering the same thing when i thought of this....
this could be any image be it from a camera or photoshop depicting a scene using both Transformers and Mini-z's. The idea is very similar to the previous photo contest.

What is the prize you make ask? It will be none less than the professionally hand painted Transformers Smokescreen Toyota Supra Yes, this has been part of my prized and special collection of Autoscales that has been pampered and well cared for.

How can you join in the fun? Simply create a bit of digital Transformers/Mini-Z fun and upload it to the Contest Gallery.

When does this end? July 1st. Voting will commence shortly afterward with the winner to be decided by popular vote on July 4th to coincide with the Movie release.

Looks good arch, except for the small factor that SmokeScreen was actually an old Datsun 280z. But forget the details, your Supra still looks awesome! By the way Kyosho, that should be a great classic Mini-Z body, the old Datsun 280Z's. Especially the racing versions.

Theres an idea. Start a new thread for photo's of tformers collection. I've got a small handfull of re-issued generation 1's including a rare black Sideswipe and a much rare-er calculator robot watch from the 80's. Found it on ebay mint in sealed box in display case! Which generation was your favorite? I though after the 3rd generation with the headmaster and targetmaster's that they started getting dumb and no longer exciting. Nothing beats the originals!

I'd hate to point out details, but in your photo gallery arch, you titled your Red Alert's photo gallery under Red Alert Diablo, when he's actually a Countach. Oh well, I'm sure you knew that,

I have an idea for you. If you can find a large enough photo of the "battle" that is showen on the back of the original G1 packages, and in place of some of the Autobots like SideSwipe, Jazz, and a few others, you overlay images of the Mini-Z version and paint in a "track" going through the space battle. I thought about that doing myselfe, but I don't have a scanner anymore.
But if other's want to try it, go ahead!

Keep bumping this thread every once in a while. I may try to contribute. I have to get up to Jersey and see how many transformers are left in the attic.
