    I'm the same z, I have not one person to talk bots with, and I would love to do that to one big meetup, and some smaller meetups for peps in areas like NW Ark.
    Where do you live Z

    I think the Idea iacon cameup with is the best one sofar, like a big meetup in early spring.

    Ya, the spread across the state is a problem, and hey, if anybody wants to organize a meetup near themselves, go for it! I was suggesting Russelville since it seemed the most central location for the majority of people that have expressed some interest.

    transformers32, MeGrimlock79, and anybody else in the Little Rock area, interested in just a small, short 'meet'n'greet' get together?

    I was thinking some Friday evening or Saturday afternoon in December or January could do something like this:

    -Meet up at that Comic Book/Toy store in Benton, (Autobot City was it?)
    -Go around to some other toy stores
    -Go out for something to eat
    -And could go to a strip club... if people would be interested in that ;) 

    Oh, and Transformers32, if we're in Benton around your place, would you want to show us some of your collection at your place?

    That would be fine. Jan would be good alot of things going on in dec and would need to get the place ready grimlock has been over before and i would love to show my collection to everyone. Not really alot of placed to go in benton we have one wal mart and a target but there alot of wal marts on the way to little rock and in the little rock area. Autobot city is alright havent been there in a while but everyone could check it out and he would love the bussiness if yall found anything. Just keep me posted and we can pick a date and time.

    Cool... the more the merrier!

    Suppose can figure out the exact details after the new year. Maybe Saturday 1/10 or 1/17?

    I want to check out Autobot City sometime, but could do this more around Little Rock too, stop by my place in West Little Rock and Target, Wal-mart, and TRU are all really close. Or hit Benton and Little Rock, I think it's about 20 miles between my place and Benton.

    That would be cool yall could come see my stuff and we can go to autobot city and check it out and then go to little rock and look at your stuff and go look around little rock. Benton is about 20 mins away i work at dillards corp in little rock so the drive isnt bad at all. and either date would be good in jan i think my schedual changes in jan but i think the 10th would be good.

    It sounds like they have it covered in the central part of the state. How about those in NWA. Anyone one to meet in January? I am starting grad school, so I need to see what weekends I have free. We could meet in Fayetteville or Rogers and go to Vintage Stock and hit the Wal-Marts and Targets.

    I would love Vintage Stock, its a comic/toystore, I have never been there, theres Rockbottom comics too, a bit overpriced but a nice place.

    I would like to do that to if possible, I would think mid Jan too?
    would be awsome, I have never hugout with other Transfans before and now boom.

    I could do a Rogers or Fayetteville meet up. I like Vintage stock but I think there stuff is overpriced, the one here in Joplin has a loose Armada Starscream priced at $75 if that gives u an idea.

    Ebay:
    meet-n-greet

    I wouldn't mind doing this. I'd like to meet some of the other people around Arkansas, aside from me, Adrian, TJ, Rickie, and Doc.

    I'd love to be able to show off my collection, but it's in a closet right now just due to lack of display space otherwise, and for 2,300+ figures, that's sad.

    That aside, count me in!

    hmmmm, sounds like a fun idea. I wonder if there is any way we can set up some kind of collection tour....maybe stop by a few or our houses if its in close proximity with one another..
