    Hi, all. I know this is short notice, but I just became aware of the details myself...

    The event is the Transformers toy launch presented by Hasbro.

    This event, which will take place July 6-8, will be held at Once Upon a Toy at Downtown Disney Marketplace. Guests will have the opportunity to have their picture taken with an ten-foot Optimus Prime replica.

    In addition, Guests will get the chance to meet Aaron Archer, toy developer for the Hasbro Transformers Toy Line July 7 from 3-4 p.m. and 6-7 p.m.

    Also on July 7, the first 500 Guests that visit Once Upon a Toy will receive a free Transformers gift from Hasbro just for coming to see Optimus Prime and the newest Transformers toys to hit the shelves.

    For those unfamiliar with Disney property, there is no fee for admission. Downtown Disney is a shopping complex in Lake Buena Vista, FL.

    Damn...There's no way I can go to Tony's thing and this.

    I'd really like to meat Aaron, but I also wanna meet up with some of the FL crew at Tony's place...

    Ah, feck it. I told Tony I'd be at his thing first.

    The decision is made for me. I live 10 minutes from the Disney event, and have a wedding going on that my wife is matron of honor in, so I can only make it to this one.

    Any questions for Aaron? I was thinking of bringing a poster sized print of the upcoming animated show's teaser and smacking him in the nose with it while stating a firm "No!".

    Since I was at the Hasbro product unveiling panel, I can only advise against doing that. Seeing the animation and the toy previews made me really appreciate the new style. Anyway, have fun. I tend to like UOAT- now the one day I really want to go, I'm bound to work.
