    We all have them; that little (or not-so-little in many cases!) lists of things that we'll be looking for in the Dealer Room at botcon in a few weeks. As soon as I confirmed that I was going I started making up mine, and I highly doubt I'm the only one. So, after seeing Bill's thread about what he's got coming for us, I decided to start this thread so people can post their own lists.
    At the moment, mine is as follows:
    TRANSFORMERS
    Overlord
    Victory Saber
    Galaxy Convoy (if released by then)
    BEAST MACHINES PACKAGING VARIATIONS
    Thrust (arms forward)
    Jetstorm (straight nose)
    Deluxe Optimus Primal (standing)
    GAOGAIGAR
    Cms Genesic GaoGaiGar
    Max factory Genesic GaoGaiGar
    HoyRyu & EnRyu

    I have NO doubt that this list will grow substantially as I think of more things I want ;) 

    So, what are YOU going to be keeping an eye out for in the dealer room?

    Mine is a little embarassing, because so much of it is stuff I could normally get at home. But there's truthfully not much else I want, and my Botcon budget affords me the opportunity to get the bigger stuff I normally pass on at home:

    Don's G1 mego litho
    some reprolabels faction symbols
    The IDW #0 preview
    SDCC LOC Skywarp
    PG Strike Gundam kit
    The Deluxe Armada Optimus Prime w/ faction symbol varient
    RM Optimus Primal
    RM Starscream
    RM Thundercracker & Skywarp
    Hybrid Style Galaxy Convoy
    catching up on Cybertron: Crumplezone, Mudflap, Leobreaker, Scourge, Jetfire, the wave 3 Scouts, and maybe Megatron and Starscream


    For the Cybertron stuff, I will be making at least one toy run to local stores...not really interested in paying convention markup on things available at retail. Anyone who wants to come along is welcome.

    And I have no idea what I'm going to do if I actually end up liking the surprise purchasable exclusives. I'm kind of counting on them being repaints of stuff in the box set and thus of little interest to me.

    Personally I'm figuring on coming out with just the 'con exclusives and MAY do some bootleg hunting...I'd love to pick up any of my "Big 4" wants (Noizu, Trizer, LD SkyLynx & LD Galvalioconvoy). but with all the work to the house I need to do I'm just not even thinking about coming away with any of those :(

    My list is pretty small.

    The Hard Hero Jazz Bust
    GF Vector Prime
    My Clone Jazz

    We're buying a Mustang, so I'm poor. :cry 

    Yeah, I'm hoping to boost my Jazz collection quite a bit at Botcon.

    Man I have been so busy this summer I really don’t know what I will be purchasing at Botcon this year although I will be on the prowl for at least a MIB G1 Shrapnel. Also keeping my eye out for a nice MIB Mirage although I don’t know how much money I will have to pick one up. Actually now that I think of it I am also keeping an eye out for a cheap Binalteck Dead End, defiantly wont pay $50+ for him so I might try and find a loose one, hopefully with no or minimal chips. Was also in a local comic shop and saw the new HH Cyclonus bust so I might pick that up as well.

    That’s it more or less, anything else I will post more if I think of anything else, I might have to take it easy as I don’t think I can get it all back in my luggage and I got a whole whack of stuff on preorder that it likely to ship right after Botcon.

    :lol  True, true. I just wish I had more money to spend at my very first con. Oh well. At least we will (hopefully) arrive in style.

    I've been scribbling stuff down as they come to me..usually when I'm browsing Ebay. :redface2: 

    Cheap and easy:
    -loose Vortex (no acc., just the bot), mine got decapitated somehow. :( 
    -PM Joyride
    -Octane
    -RM-19 (Cyberjets)
    -BW2 D-20 Autostinger? I have D-17, D-18 and D-19, I need this one to finish the set.

    Not that cheap, but probably easy to get:
    -JRX boxset
    -TM2 Megs and/or Cryotek
    -Energon Magnus
    -MP-OP Trailer
    -PVC Act 6
    -TFC #16, #17, #18 (kept putting them off)
    -E-hobby Perceptor, Anime Bluestreak, Clamp Down and Minibots

    So rare/expensive, I'll be happy to come away with one:
    -Jafcon Prime
    -Dinoking
    -Liokaiser
    -one or more of the 4 Headmaster singles I don't have

    Also looking for some of the G1 hardcover reprints..New Order, Treason, Trial By Fire and Maximum Force.

    Between the cost of going to the con with a Primus package and buying the extra convention-only exclusives, I doubt I'll have much money left. I'm planning on buying RM Reverse Convoy, and, if funds permit, RM Thundercracker/Skywarp, but that's it. Well, and some more TF shirts. My T-shirts are currently getting a little rough around the edges.

    I want a lot of things but unfortunately money and space in my suitcase is limited (one of the drawbacks of flying on a buddy pass). Here is the short list

    RID Fort Max (if I can ship him cheap)
    Botcon Nightracer
    Botcon Antagony
    A whole mess of G2 stuff
    Beast Wars Parts
    Springer blades
    TM Cyclonus left arm
    Jetfire armor
    Mexican Prowl (would make the trip worth wild)
    Wheeljack spoilers and wings
    Minispies
    Deluxe insecticons
    Hubcap
    TM scourge
    Gnaw tail and gun
    Pretenders
    and of course Knockoffs
    If I could weed this down a bit that would be great.

    anything lucky draw. (still miffed at SL red galvatron escaping me last time... esp. since the winner ended up selling it! bastard...)

    honestly, it'll take something distinctive to get my attention this year, as i fear my collection is getting too large to handle. anyone want any loose armada figs?
