We'll be giving these out at the BigAppleCon next week

I think they came out pretty sweet. At first I was a bit put off that they are a tiny bit dark, but I love how rich the colors Look. Its pretty cool to see my art in solid form and on something you can actually hold.

I did get a few gripes about the statement on the card as being a bit pretentious.
"The Most creative Group of Artist, animators, game designers, and musicians on the Web"

I dunno, I think its true, and isn't pretentious at all. maybe if I said "The ONLY Group of..." or " The Most Talented group" or " The most respected" <---LoL

In terms of the sheer amount of creative talent, we are certainly the biggest. And being creative doesn't mean we don't still have room to grow... Y'know?
I think its safe to say we ARE the most creative group on the web, and it really makes me proud.

The BigAppleCon Postcards have arrived.

With only about two weeks lefts to the BigAppleCon, Ive been hustling getting postcards designed, making Games and Videos list of the the flashes we will be displaying, and trying to come up with new or different Items to have presented at the Con.

Well The First of these just came to the office which was the Embroidered NG tank Patch. Theres just something cool about feeling the stitching of the Actual tank in your hands. On top of that it has an adhesive back so you can pretty much stick it anywhere. Its a nice subtle way to show your NG love.
The 3inch version is great for shoulder patches and backpacks, while the 1.5 inch version would go perfect on a blank cap. more news about the Con as it arrives. Even had some made of my Logo for myself.

In other news, have you guys tried FlashPlayer10 ? Its still in beta but damn is it blazin' I tried out Baron, Newgroundsrumble, and DadnMe, and all the games are superfast now. I have yet to see any real errors aside from some highlighted buttons looking misaligned, check it out.

Embroidered NG Patches!  Word

.......... Has sadly been delayed. With so many things going on, I just wasn't able to submit it on Pico day.

P-bot felt so bad about the situation that he came by and personally apologized for the delay.

Tom wasn't sad anymore.

The Rise of P-Bot..........

Last weekend Luis, and I went over to the New York Comic con. We had a good time, met a few users and even partied up with Old Time NG submitter Eric Black. One thing Newgrounds never had was a booth at a con all to its own. Eric has been doing the cons for years and states theres a hardcore NG following thats being neglected here on the east coast.

So my question is, if we decided to get a booth at the Big apple Con would any of you go? It would be a good way to meet some newgrounds users without having a mod meet, get some NG merch out there that isn't available in the store yet, play some flash games and just basically chill, without the pressures of running a huge booth.

If it was popular enough , then we would consider returning to the larger Cons that show up,

so basically I would like a show of hands, NG Booth at Apple con and possibly next years comic con?
yay or nay?

Sup Fools,

I have a pretty sweet surprise for ya. We decided to give the winners of the Pico Day Contest this year , somethin' extra. Something a little more personal, and if you are a true NG fan a little bit more rewarding as well. On top of all the prizes they already receive, the first , second and third place will also be getting a Pico Day trophy!! These Silver plated Picos come on a mounted stand with Pico Day 2008 and the Winners Name Printed on it! I'm actually pretty jealous of you guys, because I will always be ineligible for one of these .

This brings us to our next big feature. The Video Blogs! The feature is still in beta so if you catch any bugs please let the Rob know. He's the mastermind behind coding the embed function. Now when you write a blog you have the option to include a picture or a video. The feature is very new, so we have a few video sites available for upload. Those are, YouTube, Revver, Vimeo, and GameTrailers.

So as a Test Drive I decided to up load a video rotating around the trophy so you can catch it in all its glorious angles.
This is gonna be the BEST PICO DAY EVER!!! ok time for some tea

Well Pico Day is almost upon us again, and I can't say how much I love this day. I literately get up early that day, head to the office, turn on my comp, grab a bowl of cereal, and enjoy the morning like I used to as a kid in front of the tube watching my Saturday morning cartoons.

I'm also glad Tom mentioned that he is only too happy to see fresh toons and games about not just Pico but of the whole Pico universe. A decision I'm sure was greatly influenced by some of the many awesome submissions that revolved on not just Pico. Flashback00 and Darnells Burn 'em up come to mind.

So on that note, Ive decided to make a flash about another unsung hero of the Pico Universe.
It's the first real Toon I've done in a while, and a nice break from sprite work.
The plan is to give my storytellin' chops a run for their money, and make a toon thats at least twice as epic as Pico's Unloaded was. Which should be an easy task considering how Busted that toon looks now, haha.

Somethin' new comin' down da pipe.

Aight before I get any hassles this is about a transformer figure, yea thats right. Imma talk about Toys,

so if that ain't your bag, go complain to somebody else about it.

Now that thats out of the way... I wanna talk about the Megatron Figure I got today ^_^
Before Megatron became what he is today,a walking pile of metal scrap.He actually transformed into something recognizable . That would be the Walter P38 handgun. Now, I know that isnt much of an improvement with what we have now, but thats the Megatron I grew up with.
There has been transformer lines coming from many companies outside of Hasbro and Takara, even more so than ever now that the movie has been a big hit.
Before the movie though, there was a transformer line by the company "Tomy". Their Goal is to produce very detailed versions of the G1 transformers, that not only could transform, but are Show Accurate, especially in robot mode.
Some of you probably have the 25th anniversary Optimus Prime, which is the MasterPiece Prime, that was brought over. Since Optimus, there has been MP Starscream and MP Megatron. Starscream was a walmart exclusive which I couldn't find anywhere, but I was lucky enough to get one for Christmas! (Yay!)
MP Megatron is another matter. Since hes based off the orginal Megatron that was a gun, the probability of him getting brought over is next to none. Whats worse is Importers were charging triple the amount to add the orange cap on the barrel (US specs) in order to import him.
Well, my luck finally came in when I was able to snipe one off ebay, unmoded, for a fraction of the importers price!
He's an awesome figure. Hes totally huge, (He needed to be Primes Size or bigger) and has tons of little details. Things that stand out are his articulation, like his individuals fingers, and ability to turn the neck and legs, as well as a cool little light within the arm cannon.

Making it show accurate does have its draw backs. For starters, he doesn't have the mass as a gun, like he does in robot form. Even though they doubled the size of the gun, he still was stretched apart to the limits. For example his legs were beefed up by having a section of the handle pulled out at the calf, as well as having the trigger ring folded inside of the leg. The exact thing was done to his shoulders as well. On Top of this the arm and leg joints are hidden in the handle and hammer section of the gun, so in robot mode these parts are pulled out, leaving these sections even more hollow.

Gripes aside its still an ambitious attempt at making something as impossible as Cartoon megatron transform perfectly into his gun mode and back.

and yes thats the original megatron in gun mode in the inset picture.
