We here at TFW have been busy as heck since Botcon 2011. Almost non stop, the site picked up leading into the Transformers movie launch. Increased users online, server problems, and a ton of other things, kept us in a tizzy.
One thing we overlooked was the fact that one of TFW2005's own, Dark-Sakura, won 1st place for her entry into the Botcon 2011 Art Contest. On top of it being awesome she won, and down with 2005, the other angle is that she is none-other than the daughter of long time 2005 Veteran Shin-Gouki.
We congratulate her, and her proud dad, for taking home the prize. (And apologize for taking so long to get this up!)
Check out the entry after the break, and if you are a 2005 member and won something during Botcon 2011, make sure to let us know!Read Replies (0)

Several auctions have popped up across the board for a potential recolor of Transformers Dark of the Moon Shockwave. This version of Shockwave drops a lot of purple for gray, which in robot mode will probably give Shockwave a purple head and chest, and gray almost everywhere else. The deco just might be inspired by the original Astro Magnum toy that Shockwave was inspired by.
