    I guess Lexington's the closest I'll ever get to a Botcon. Next year, I'll be living in either Texas or Missouri. RI would have been close if I still continued to live where I am right now.

    Well Texas the first year (west coastish), Kentucky second year (midwest) and Rhode Island the third year (east Coast) the fourth year probably back out west. And isnt Rhode Island where hasbro is located ?

    the only cool thing about it being in Rhode Island

    is how Botcon has those "outside of Botcon" field trip things


    thatd be an awesome opportunity to give Botcon attendees a tour of Hasbro HQ and see how TFs are made

    itd be a plus but man. thats on the other side of the country for me

    That's very true. That's something I would actually sign up for...if I were to go to freakin' Rhode Island.

    Despite being about as far away to the NW as RI is to the NE, I might actually go to Seattle. Never been there. Never been to RI either, but..thats b/c it's RI.

    Wow. That SUCKS, no it ****S. Rhode-freakin'-Island?!? They are definitely trying to alienate the West and Southwest fans, especially with the timing.

    Maybe 2008 will have a better location and time frame.

    Becuase hasbro is trying to alienate fans, surely. Go to Takara's botcon, then.

    I'm psyched that its in the summer...I'm a full time college student, I'll never make it to a September/october con, and I'm only an hour and a half to Providence, and I know a girl I could stay with there.

    Sorta OT, but..I wonder what this does to the Joe Con. We've been told previously that the reason the TF Con was in Sep was because Joe had a lock on July 4 weekend and logistically, they just couldn't have both that close together.
