Question of the A Few Months Ago: Is The Transformers Market Flooded?

Final we've got some answers for you and a winner as well!

Picture of the Month Contest!

We're trying something new with this issue of TFU.INFO Magazine; instead of a Question of the Month, we've decided to have a bit more fun. We're want all the people with photo editing skills to chime in on this one. Here's the challenge:

Take any picture from the figure archive (any picture at all: toy, cartoon, comic, etc) and digitally recolor it to your tastes and send it in to us. Judging will be on skill, originality, theming, and overall-badassness.

Ready, set...GO! I'm looking forward to seeing my email flooded with cool digital recolors.
