    What are you hopingto come back from botcon with?

    Me, i want to find a Liokaiser and some seacon parts. I hear that botcon is a good place to meet transformer tolerant girls as well. maybe i can gome back with one or two of them aswell. I want to hang out an meet as many of you as i can, and i hear that my fav artist, Josh Howard MAY attend as a fan as well. i'd love to meet him, as we've been chatting back and forth on his message board.

    hopefully the guestlist will include peter cullen and frank welker, and i can add to my autograph collection.

    All I can say is if your looking for a complete Liokaiser, then you better bring your checkbook. Last year the only ones I saw were at least $500.

    "transformer tolerant girls"? I assume the only ones of those you will see are the one the Transformer guys are bringing with them.

    Other than the exclusives...I'd like to come away with MP Megatron, and maybe some Revoltechs and another 1/48 valk :)  Longshots would be the last few South American Minibots I need, or some of the rarer Machine Robos...

    Hope is the first step down the road to disappointment.

    There are couple things I’m going to be keeping an eye out for but I don’t have a shopping list and if I don’t see anything I like for prices I’m will to pay then I’ll just have a lighter bag to carry home.

    I don't really believe in "Want Lists" because I have a habbit of being hyper focused. And as a result I might miss out on cool stuff simply because it wasn't on my list. For any toys I would buy, if it's cool and it's MISB. I'll buy it :D 

    In terms of my actual hopes for BotCon, my hopes are more on the social side of things

    1)Meet and hang with some Transfans; Met Professor Smooth last year and he seemed like a cool guy

    2)Have fun at the bowling outing

    3)Have fun with the 2005 guys

    You know the standard stuff :) 

    Although I'm seriously crossing my fingers that there's a Hasbro tour and Advance screening of the movie. It really would make my year :D

    Looking forward to meeting you, Wheeljaxx.
    Personally I'm hoping to find a MIB (preferably MISB, but I like having 2 kidneys) Deszaras. Failing that a box/insert for either Overlord or Victory Leo would be nice.
    I'm also looking forward to much beer, and more drunken posting like last year.
    Plus, this year I'm single. Should be interesting.

    I am looking for a Leozak, Galaxy Shuttle, Ratbat, Rumble, Frenzy, then some Micromaster stuff.

    I'm not looking for alot, I figure the micromaster stuff and the cassettes I should be able to find. Leozak and Galaxy Shuttle will be the two high end items I am looking for.

    Oh yeah, the exclusives, and the repaints of energon divebombs that was an exclusive last year. But I would be very content just getting the cassettes and a bunch of Micromaster stuff.

    Like last year I'd really like to get my hands on one of them WST Magnus Garage kits.
    Aside from that, just looking to get anything that looks neat.
    I'd also like to meet more members of the fandom, I got to hang out with a bunch of you all last year, looking forward to it again.

    Dude, I'm buying you beers but that's all.


    I have nothing i want besides a good time. If Botcon doesn't supply that, I'm jumping into the sea at Boston.

    Unfortunately no, it's mainly cash ILD

    The only exception I know of was last year when the Hartman's sold their stuff. They accepted both cash and credit payments using paypal

    My top wants is Revoltech Magnus and Prime. Then, I'm just going to grab any small oddity that I can find. Yep, if it doesn't fit in the palm of my hand, more then likely I won't get it. I actually managed to not buy ANY figures last year and I'm hoping to do the same this year. :D 

    Then I'm hoping to meet up with friends again and meet new people as well. Should have a great time, let's just hope the hubby doesn't get bored again. :lol

    Almost no dealers take credit.

    As Shaun said, the Hartmann's accepted Paypal payments, I want to say Elvin's table did too.

    BigBadToyStore takes credit.

    The club store obviously does.

    But other than that, it is virtually sparse. I suggest bringing enough cash, or have an ATM card handy.
