Photographs of the Burnie statue.Photographs of the Burnie statue taken in Burnie Tasmania.

This little guy has been on quite a journey.

Described by Burnie in a podcast.
Animated by Jordan in an animated adventure.
Sculpted by Kala Kromer as an RTX Sidequest auction item.
Won by : Ninjaspectre, Desayjin, and mattcorry
at the RTX Sidequest Auction at Buffalo Billiards. Thanks guys for trusting him with me.

Special thanks go to the convention ninja Count3D, who found me on the Sunday at RTX, and helped me get backstage with the statue for an appearance during the Podcast.

(Co)winning the statue of Burnie on the silent auction at Buffalo Billiards was something that has given me great joy and pride.

It has also given me many sleepless nights, worrying that the statue would still be wrapped up in it's FedEx box by the time of RTX 2013.

Mission accomplished.

Congratulations, Matt!

I've been excited to see the results of this photoshoot ever since you told me about it at RTX 2012, and I am not dissappointed. Well done, sir!

Hopefully the statue makes a safe return to RTX 2013.

And you, of course. You are more important than a statue.

Thank you for giving me the time to get the job done. It took a lot longer than I could have hoped or feared.

No worries. All that mattered is that it came out fine in the end.

Seeing you (and the others) buying the statue at the charity auction was easily one of my favorite highlights of RTX 2012. Awesome to see you made it there! And great pictures too!

Hey, Matt!! You were mentioned during the RT PAX East panel!!

Burnie talked about a fan taking the Burnie statuette to Tasmania, and I was clapping and screaming, "MATT!! Yeah, Go Matt!!! Awesome!!!"

Well done, man.

Haven't found one yet, but soon. SOMEBODY had to have recorded the panel in that crowd.
