    Man they have been getting non-stop flak since December. I wonder how they'll survive this panel?

    That wouldn't work, TF fans can smell fear.

    I'm just wondering how people will react if they reveal Scourge as a club exclusive.

    They'll survive because they are going to reveal Scourge and other much anticipated fan favorite figures and everyone will suddenly forget / stop caring about the club's problems.

    Same as every other year.

    Btw, Pete already confirmed in another thread in a roundabout way Scourge is a club figure.

    Bring the rage lol. I want a good "blow by blow" if they open it up to questions from the audience. Please include nervouse stammers or mean mugging if you can;) 
    I actually annoyed Brian Savage in 08 when I asked about updating the registration so we didn't need to use faxes anymore lol. I talked to him away from the panel & he was nice as can be but I still remember chuckling at his annoyance of my panel question.

    You guys worry / are expecting too much :lol 

    I foresee the following happening:

    "Hey guys, we know a lot of people are upset at what happened; unfortunately, we still can't discuss the details because of the ongoing investigation, so we can't take any questions about this subject.

    We can say that we have upgraded our security, opened a new website and switched to a trusted vendor to take your credit cards; we're going to make this year the best we possibly can, and we're going to start with the toys!

    *Toy Reveal*

    *Fans forget about their issues upon seeing Scourge and other figures*"

    Even if they open up questions, it will be nothing but "We can't comment at this time" and a bunch of spin... similar to what we got in the forums.

    Maybe someone will get crazy angry and they'll have to call security; now THAT would be something. Some disgruntled guy attending Botcon just waiting for this moment.

    Ask to borrow their credit card for the club store. Assure them it will be kept secure. :)

    Botcon 2013

    All Panels will now be protected by bulletproof glass and a riot squad will be posted 24/7 to ensure minimum "Scourge related incidents"

    I normally don't care about tuning in to any of the live coverage, but this is something I can't/won't miss. >D
