    Hello everyone,
    If you went to Botcon last year you probably saw my HUGE Mini-con display that was close to the entrance of the dealer room. There has been some in the fandom who have expressed a desire to see them again at this years con. I am starting this thread to see how many of you would like to see it again. If you do please say so here or give me your thoughts. if enough people would like to see it again I will try and sell the idea to Brian.
    Thanks in advance

    Not sure I will be at the show, but I'd definitely like to see pics.

    Is it a pretty complete set? To the best of my knowledge I'm only 8-10 campaign Microns short of every one released, so I'd like to see if I've missed any!

    So yes.

    I <3 the mini-cons bring the display back.

    I'm closing in on completion as well (damn you Galaxy exclusives!)

    yes it is this close () to being complete, sans the gold luckydraw, black megs, and unreleased items. although i do have the Blue E Magnus and the unreleased BiaB Smokescreen.
    Someone suggested that this time make an epic minicon battle display, i like that idea :)

    I wouldn't mind seeing it again but I would suggest putting your latest additions towards the front with sign talking about their rarity, etc.

    While not part of my collection, it is a neat set of Microns/Minicons. :) 

    Everyone, you are welcome for the pic.

    I remember you setting them all up. I was one of the dealers that was close to the display case. I do not think a lot of people saw the collection as there was always people leaning up against the case. maybe if they could have the case over by where they had the hasbor display cases that would get more people to look at the collection

    Bring it on, Greg! I don't collect Minicons personally (WAY too many of the little buggers for me to afford, so I figured it was best not to start ;) ), but I loved seeing so many in one place and I'd love to see it again.

    no actually thats the only one i know of. I have them separated here at home with thier specific lines. It was really nice to see them all together though. Since then the Classics minis have come out as well as the collectors club set.
    Cheers!
