    Florida fans,

    Join us for a day of fun at the Great Florida Fan Meet-up on Saturday, September 22, 2007.

    The day will start as fans from across the state meet at the Orlando Comic-Con to browse the dealer room and get items signed by Neil Kaplan; voice of Optimus Prime in TF: RID. As the day progresses, there will be a time set-up for everyone to buy, sell, and trade TF figures and accessories from all generations. Finally, the day will end with a trip to the Regal Pointe Orlando Stadium 20 where we will enjoy Transformers in IMAX.

    Information about the con and the theater has been provided below. Post in this thread if you are planning on attending and if there is anything you plan to bring to sell or trade.

    I hope to see many of you there!

    Junior

    Uh, con is probably a no go for me. Movie isn't a problem. What time are you planning to go to the IMAX?

    It's at least the second year for this con, probably more. I'm not as into comics as I used to be. But I have a friend who is a comic artist that had a table last year.

    I think Megacon has been around longer.

    I do not believe there are times yet. I'll have to update the first post as we get closer.

    I have been watching all the discussion in the FL Feature thread and these seemed like the consensus ideas from everyone. I just decided to take it one step further and organize us.

    Nobody more qualified to do so, as far as I'm concerned!

    I was planning on attending the UCF game that day, but those plans weren't set in stone. Pencil me in as a 'yes' for the movie.

    Say it with me... AY-EHM-ESS
    :lol 
    *raises hand*
    I'm definitely in... not really interested in the comic show, but I'll be coming to the movie.

    I've never seen ANY movie in IMAX, so I figure this should be the one. :thumb

    Looks like I am going to have to bow out. Things have gotten pretty busy in my district and it doesn't look like my time off request is going to go through.

    Sorry, Team Florida.

    FYI - Looks like Neil Kaplan's name has been removed from the guest list. If you were just going to the con to see him, you might as well save the $15 admission.

    I'm a UCF season ticket holder so it's an automatic negatory on going to the show. I've steered away comic-focused conventions in the last 2 years since I'm more TF-toy focused. Megacon has slowly become more comic and anime focused (And RPG) events vs. the FX Show (Which is heading down that route too).

    I would have enjoyed seeing everyone though. That would have given me a reason to run out and get a Darth Vader mask from TRU so my identity remains "Safely Anonymous" :lol
