(griffin's 2005 BotCon adventure)


The Art Contest was very small this year, due to the small turnout.

One of the judges this year was Hasbro Designer Aaron Archer.   No... he's not taking some notes for future toys, but it was coincedental that there was a War Within Grimlock in the Art Contest, some years before the Titanium came out.

Jetfire's Escape - Megatron Rock (I think it is a photo of a rock-face, but I don't see it) (actually won 2nd prize... just for a photo... seems really strange, when there was actual hand-drawn art that didn't win a prize)
