    Design a Transformer Contest.

    Ever wanted to try your hand at creating an Autobot or Decepticon? Well here is your chance. Transformers Ireland Online is looking for a mascot, and we want you ,the fan to make it.

    We are launching a contest to design an Irish inspired Transformer character, a Cybertronian with a Celtic Spark.

    We are looking for an original design,from whatever era or incarnation of Transformers you wish it to be.
    We are looking for a robot design, as well as an Alternate mode,ie, what it transforms into,and a name for the proposed character.

    The main criteria is that it must have an Irish aspect or theme to the design , Example, the name could be "Lepra-Con" and it could be a robot spy that transforms into a novelty item! Use your imagination and see what springs forth. You can take an existing TF design and alter it.

    Note: Just Painting "Guiness" on the side of Octane's tanker mode or on Optimus Primes's trailer dosen't count!

    The Rules and Guidelines:

    You come up with the design, it can be inspired by Generation 1,Movie,Animated,Beast wars, or any Transformer design, but it must have an Irish element to it,in the Robot design,or Alt mode,or name....or all 3 if you can manage it! It can be mini-con, normal scale, leader class,a base or a whole combiner team- the choice is yours.
    It can be cheesy,kitsch, realistic, or hyper detailed, how ever you want to interpret it is up to you.

    The amount of detail is entirely up to you, the fans and members are going to vote from all the submissions,so a good idea may win out over a great piece of artwork,or vice-versa.You don't have to be of the caliber of comic artist to enter, as long as we get the idea.

    The image can be pencil drawing ,inked,computer rendered,2D or 3D, it is entirely up to you. It can in black and white or fully coloured. If you have the time and expertice,you can kitbash or build it from Transformers action figures.If you have the time and an idea,come up with a bio or history for the character.

    One entry/image/drawing per person please.

    The contest is open to members and non-members of the TFIO forum.
    When you have a design finished you have from now up until April 1st to forward it on to

    [email protected]

    On that day we will post all the submissions with a number associated with them in a designated public section of the forum ,and in a blog on our MySpace page , the submissions will be annonyomous, up until the winner is announced.

    Voting is by Email only.

    You then can tell your friends to send an email to [email protected] , with the subject heading Contest, followed by the number of the drawing you wish to vote for,e.g " subject: Contest 12" will be a vote for drawing number 12. Only one vote per email address to the TFIO Email account please. But you can tell as many people as you want to vote for you if you recognise your entry by telling them the number attatched to it. A Number of Moderators have access to the account so voting will be monitored and updated as well as to make things fair and partial.

    When we receive an email nominating a certain number, we will post that vote in the thread below the drawing,so you will reguarly be able to view who is in the lead. Voting will last for 2 weeks starting from April 1st thru to the 15th April.

    The Prizes:

    The winning entry will be the submission with the most votes as chosen by the fans. The winner will then have a choice of one of the following prizes courtesy of Modelmania:

    Transformers Masterpiece Starscream in Generation 1 colours.

    Transformers Masterpiece Thundercracker.

    The winning design will then become the official mascot of TFIO.

    There will be spot prizes for works of merit, or just favourites among the TFIO staff.

    Name: Banshee
    Function: Diva
    Faction: Decepticon
    Motto: I have a voice that can break Autobots
    Weapons: Echo Chamber built into chest cavity gives her a concussive blast of sound when she screams, plus can set off multiple sonic booms in jet mode.
    Alt mode: Green Jet fighter
    Character: Banshee takes her name from the mythical Irish creature that used to lure men to their doom with its haunting song. She too likes to lure transformers to their doom by playing the victim and when they get close unleashing a devastating blast of sound, literally ripping them to shreds.
    Weakness: Along with a powerful voice comes a powerful ego, arrogant and selfish, fortunately she is talented enough for most superiors to ignore her whims and demands. Her weapon has the side effect of rattling her joints and seals loose after awhile resulting in her being extremely high maintenance (literally).

    I´m torn between a few of them. Hardchaw looks cool and deserves to be made into a toy. Blackstuff has a targetmaster called Toucannon, for some reason I find that hilarious. Celticon transforms into Croke Park!

    There´s far too many talented people here. Who do I vote for! someone tell me and put me out of my misery!
