    Well here it is. The official PARTS PARTY thread. Battlestarbase, myself, Liokaiser and other board members will be there to trade, sell and buy. We will be posting on the bulletin board with times and all. So here is the way this thread will go. Post if you are attending, if you are bringing something tell us. If you are looking for something tell us that too. Hopefully this will help get the haves with the wants..

    Is there a tentative time and place for this event? I am considering offering for sale some of my extra parts for the first time (it's always been trade-only in the past.)

    What do people do that don't have a hotel room to trade out of? I have about 10 medium size boxes of stuff I want to trade, but I don't have a hotel room at the convention.

    Are we thinking of this just being rooms, or will there be some kind of central location.
    I'm sharing a room so I'll probably need some place to set up.

    Also, what's the big night for trading? Thursday? I think there's events every other night.....

    One year we tried to rent a room so everyone could get together and trade. But that was during the OTFCC era and they would not have it. Also the initial cost was very high to say the least. What we do is post on the bulletin board where and when (usually every night). There will be other parts parties going on but usually this is a big one. It spills out into the hallway with somewhere between 10-15 people. Last time I setup my stuff in the hallway and made a lot of trades. A few of the dealers show up and generally the prices are better than in the dealer room. Not to mention getting first dibs on the good stuff. I'll post some of the stuff I'm bringing as we get closer to Botcon.
    Hope to see everyone there, please LMK your screen name. I would love to put a face with the name.

    Hey guys, I'll be there. I don't know where I'm staying or anything else, but I'll be there Friday and Saturday. If I can figure out how, I may come up on Thursday night. Looking forward to meeting you all.

    What do you mean by bulletin board? Do you mean this web forum or a physical bulletinn board located at the hotel? Thanks in advance.

    Super Megatron is right. There will be a physical bulletin board in the lobby that you can post to.

    (steps up on soapbox)

    I really wish that people would introduce themselves at this get together. After every convention there are always people on this board who say "well I wish I could have met someone from the boards there" Get off your butt and introduce yourself. Understand that some may think it childish to collect toys but think about it.... we all have the same childish interest. When else are you gonna be able to debate over a topic so close to your heart.

    (steps down off soapbox)

    I thankyou for your support.

    Hey guys...I'll be there this year and for the first time so will my wife! She's actually looking forward to coming and finally finding out first hand what all the hoopla is about Botcon. I'm sure I may get those looks every time I pull out the wallet, but I'd rather have her by my side than not.

    As for trading, I'm sure I can dredge up some stuff. We have a room @ the Hyatt for only Saturday night as we're staying with family near by the rest of the week. I doubt I'll be able to turn my room into a 'flea market', but if trading is still occurring Saturday evening I'll be there.

    I know off the top of my head that I have some extra Omega Supreme & Metroplex parts. Have to see what else I have...it's been awhile since I've done any parts selling/trading.

    I also still have a good many 3 3/4" GIJoe parts (guns, helmets, backpacks, etc.)...think there would be enough interest to warrent bringing these along too?

    See everyone @ the con!
