Congrats to the Transformer SCC team who won third place for their movie “Trampsformers!”
Star Car Central is made up of quite of collection of cool cars and just as cool and varied owners/drivers! If you had told me a few years back that I would have so many starcars that I would find and connect cars like Transformer owners, I would have laughed! But now off shoots are going to events that are just for their type of car. Back on June 3-5,2011 (I know, I am trying to catch up!) Bumblebee owner Jon Merker and Jason Ybarra with his Ratchet Medic van decided to display their transformer autobots at the annual BOTCON Convention held this year at the Pasadena convention center. The robot fans flipped out when they saw the cars.
Friday morning BOTCON held their annual fan film festival screening. There were 16 short films shown and that night at 10pm the winners were announced. “Trampsformers” won 3rd place.
Then on Saturday Alex Wong brought his KITT to be displayed too. Possible new members to SCC were on hand as well. Paul from Pomona brought his Ironhide and Shannon from Arizona brought his Trailbreaker to be on display too. Stay tuned to see Paul with SCC, soon a whole set of Transformers!!! (video down below of all ratchets features!)
A fun weekend in all, with Bumblebee,Ratchet, and Ironhide even taking a cruise to IN N OUT on Saturday night! and then a theater in Santa Monica showed the original 1986 Transformers cartoon movie Sunday night where Ratchet and Bumblebee were displayed outside the theater as well, many of the voice actors were in house too!
You can find many more photos from BOTCON as well as a link to watch “Trampsformers” Ratchet on page 2 of Ratchets website : http://www.cardomain.com/ride/3897880
watch the video, and see what his licence plate reads out! NICE, JASON! The boys and bots have found each other, and there is no turning back! Great job everyone!
