the Good - the even itself was generally well run. Great location, good facilities. Pretty much what we've come to expect from Fun Productions. No complaints from me. -Rhode Island was a great place despite everyones issues getting there. - Autograph wristband was a great idea, although it didn't alleviate the Cullen line, but that's to be expected. - the Exclusives were great, and the additional sets seemed (to me at least) to be more reasonably priced than previous years. - Great guests. Yes we'd seen many before, but the scriptwriters panel was pretty awesome and I'll never grow tired of seeing Peter Cullen. the Bad - Way too many lines. Take the Hasbro/Club Toy Shop, the Friday morning when it opened, the line didn't move for TWO HOURS because of two guys at the cash desk taking forever. While that's their perogative, something should have been done to get the line moving again like an extra member of staff to help out. That was seriously frustration personified. And that was the only line I participated in. From what I heard; registration was also a nightmare for a lot of people. - Hasbro/Club Toy Store I know there's a lot of product, and the staff aren't full time on the thing, but some product familiarity would have gone a long, long way to speeding those lines up. Also, NO CASH REGISTER? C'mon, you can get them from Wal-Mart for crying out loud. Someone with a cash box is only going to slow things down further. Pain. the Ugly - The Westin Providence Hotel Boy, do they ever love their hidden charges. Also the staff were rude pretty much the entire time of my stay and were not very welcoming in the least. I know this is completely beyond Fun Productions control, but it was really the only thing that really sticks out as a sore spot for the entire trip. - Impossible to buy booze after six o'clock in Providence, srsly like wtf mate? I was impressed with 2005's Botcon, and it was -tiny- compared to 2007, so major points for pulling it all off so well. Can't wait to go again.
