    Hey there everyone,


    Just as the title says, I hardly know anyone in the Transformers fandom and would really appreciate it if some of you guys would hook up and pal around with me (or any other variant of the phrase) I'd really like to get to know some of you guys and make as many friends as I can.

    I hope you'd do me the honors of helping out a newb like me enjoy his first BotCon to the fullest and cement a life-time worth of memories and friendships
    along the way.

    From the bottom of my heart,
    Thanks for listening.

    -Tommy

    It wont take you long, drop by the parts party and introduce yourself and you will make a ton of friends fast, last year the people I was meeing up with came a few days after so I didn't think id meet anyone until then but as soon as I walked in the doors sol fury came up and introduced himself and then I met a ton of people.

    Make your self available, take some chances, and don't worry, you get used to the itchy feeling after a while.

    Just wander up & say hi. It's my birthday on the Sunday of Botcon, so I'll probably be in a good mood all the way through the convention :)

    We should organize to have Brian Savage pop out of a giant cake in his underwear and serenade you with a sultry rendition of Happy Birthday.

    As has been mentioned many times over the years. Proper use of a shower and antiperspirant will go a long way towards making friends.

    The above is a general disclaimer and is not intended to single out the orignal poster or any other poster in this thread... except you, yeah you swamp thing, take a shower for God sake!

    At my first convention all I did was hang around outside the dealer's room and when the appropriate opportunity arose I would insert myself into a conversation (i.e. someone had a question and no one else in the group knew the answer).

    Remember to use soap during said showers. Many con goers forget that little detail. Wet dog smell + Elevator = BAD COMBO.

    Yup, as long as the bar lets you in. You can always say you are a designated driver and buy Coke all night. :)

    Given past conventions, I'll be happy if everyone showers and uses deoderant. If they forget to brush, I can at least offer them a tic-tac... the ones for BO are way to expensive.
