    I guess we know who all the guests are going to be. I was hoping there would be a few more Animated voice actors, but I'm extremely happy with the ones that are showing up.

    There goes my hope of Susan Blu. Ah well. I guess I can get Isenberg to sign my BM Dvds.

    Does anyone know the difference between the Hasbro Toy panel on Saturday and the Hasbro Designers panel on Sunday?

    If I had to guess, I'd say the toy panel is the big unveiling they do every year, with all sorts of people from Hasbro (designers included), talking about the new show, and all the new toys, and the big Q/A. Hence the 2 hours. And that the one on Sunday is just the designers, and talks more specifically about how they design the toys, and why they make certain decisions.

    That tends to happen any time that anything else isn't happening.

    So I am not seeing the Club Store open on Thurs. when Registration opens. I sure hope this does not mean Dealers get first grabs on Friday Morning.

    Glad to see the How to Draw TF panels again this year. I missed out last year, and have been kicking myself for it. I'm really hoping Eric S will be there again to teach. (and maybe doing sketches again... I really want one. :(  )

    The Club store is typically open during registration as that is where you purchase the convention souvenirs along with anything else they have for sale.

    As for the schedule, Im glad to see that they're finally having a voice acting contest again, even though I expect I'll loose. Overall it looks like there's only a few things I really want to attend, which means more time for shopping the dealer's room :rock

    You know, it freaking figures. I can't go this year, and they have the toy panel on Sat. instead of Sun. AARRGGHH!!! Oh well. I've got my hookup to give me the play by play like last year, I hope.

    I think there's a typo in that schedule, guys-- it makes no sense for the Club Store to open for dealers first, I think instead of the Club Store, they mean the Dealer Room. Also notice there's no set time that the "Dealer Room Private Preview Opens" on the Friday schedule, yet there's a set time that it closes on the schedule, and that increases my suspicion.

    Pete, can you confirm this?

    No, they open the Club store early for dealers so that they can get whatever they want before they have to set up and man their booths for a weekend.

    Yeah, but last year, the club store was open so we could get our stuff right after we got checked in with registration. This seems to insinuate that we can't...

    Looking at it again, yeah, ignore my last post. I didn't notice they just say "Private Preview" this year instead of "Dealer Room opens at... ___".

    I sure hope I can get the attendee exclusives on Thursday night, since I'll be checking in Wednesday night for my regular stuff.

    I don't see them not allowing pre-regs to pick up the souvenirs that night.
