Look what came today in my mail! It’s the prizes from the Transformers Ride contest for being winners 2 - 10!!! I am one of 10 people in the world right now that owns an official deluxe EVAC toy! I also got a letter, two posters, a patch, a hat and a t-shirt along with it. I still worked my ass for these prizes, but it would been amazing if I could of won a free trip to Hollywood Universal to ride the Ride on opening weekend. Some day I will get out there though. Best part, the prizes all came a week before TFCON!! (I think I’m just more excited by the fact that I actually won a contest. I never do…)
Yesterday, May 24th, was the grand opening of the new Transformers: The Ride at Universal Studios, Hollywood. As seen in the picture, there was several guests there including Peter Cullen and Frank Welker who rode the ride. Cullen had also supplied the voice of Optimus Prime for the Ride as well. Apparently, Speilburg was on the red carpet with several Transformers characters and actors.
Man, I would of given anything to be there on opening day. Or even be one of those people in the car with Peter or Frank. You lucky, lucky bastards whoever you are. Do you even know who you were riding with?
