For those of you having trouble with this activity here's a little tip. Try to design your robots using blocks in separate layers, like the taxi cab. All that guy had do with his when transforming it, is move his pieces around, which makes the whole process a lot more manageable if you aren't experienced in animation. Try doing somthing simple like a box for starters.

Also, I don't see a rule for it anywhere, so don't think that your submission has to be in ISO perspective. ISO is much harder for making animations because of the extra dimension it adds as well as the matter of keeping the perspective clean.

this sounds like a very cool contest if not challenge. I'll try something in the next week or so.
Loving Refridgeron! PBF rocks my world!

Phew.. entry Number 2. If I do this again, I'm going with somthing MUCH simpler with less frames.

Here's Boximus Prime: Protecting Refridgerator boxes from the threat of hobo invasion.

Crab, I must say: Boximus Prime is awesome.  The only nitpick I have is that the pause on the corner when rolling for the first time seems a bit too long to me.  Other than that, I love it.  If I were a hobo, I would be scared of that robot :-P

Thanks for comments, guys. I'll update the first pause on the roll in a day or two.

I've always had trouble doing animations.
Not because I'm that bad with them,
but I have a slight problem;
I don't have a program that can loop animation,
nor can it make animations transparent,
nor do I have money.

Suggestions?
If I have such a program,
I'll probably join!
