    I received my issue of Master Collector/Transformers Collectors' Club magazine today. Location hasn't been listed, but the timeframe has to a certain degree:

    "We are working on BotCon '08. I can't tell you much so far, but I can tell you that it will be in the Spring this year, sometime around the end of April, first of May. Details will be released on BotCon.com as soon as they are available.

    -Brian"


    This isn't a full quote by any means. But it does give us fans a good heads-up to start planning for the convention.

    Fans, start saving your money for registration!

    Indeed. The wife and I were/are planning a trip for April. Hrm. Maybe it'll be in DC or Seattle, the two places we're heavily considering....

    I'm personally hoping that it's the 2nd weekend in May, as my classes for the Spring semester will end on the 3rd, which happens to be the first Saturday in May. I still may be able to go, if it is that weekend depending on what my schedule for that semester is like, and if I have anything important to do that weekend, like take an exam or something.

    DC has my vote.

    But man, that's right before finals for the college folk. That must suck.

    Hell yes! Charlotte would be my dream come true. However, anywhere in the Southeast would be great.

    Spring is kind of early. I thought I'd have more time to save. I wonder how this will affect the exclusives? You'd think they would have to put a ruch on them, unless they already had them planned out last year.
