    A few of us UKers have had them before, usually at Auto Assembly - our most recent non-con meet-up was last November. Had a great time hanging out. In fact, the conventions have become less about toy-buying and more about becoming a big social gathering. :D

    I keep trying to make on happen. But the rest of the Bamians aren't social :lol 

    The sociality at Botcon was amazing, and I'm addicted.

    I'd really like to meet up with some fans, but I don't think there is a convention in British Columbia, and I can't travel far.

    Never been to a local meet up, we were suppose to have a Central FL one back in Jan, but as far as I know, nothing happened.

    If they are anything like the meet up at Auto Assembly this year, then I think get togethers are AWESOME!

    I think conventions are the ideal place because you can talk about life or toys and nobody gives you a second look. Out in the wider world it always feels a little more awkward as talking about plastic figurines in a bar full of people watching football... yah.

    Not that I'm strictly opposed to the latter, I just prefer a larger gathering, more scope for meeting more like-minded peoples.

    Never been to local get-togethers. Most of the fans here in Michigan live mostly around the metro Detroit area, of which I feel the most uncomfortable driving to. If there were fans who lived much closer to where I live, or hold a get-together somewhere closer to where I live, I would really put a lot of effort in attending.

    Only got to meet 1 fellow TFW in real life, though: Maximus Prime. Bought a couple figures from him a few years ago.

    If anything, I will be lucky if I can get to a con and meet fellow TFW members there.
