    Hi all, I'm rather new to this community, but I've been a collector for years. I'm gonig to botCon this coming weekend; it'll be be my first one. I'm arriving in LA at 10am and wont get to the show till 11:30 I think....and it closes for the day at 5pm.

    My question is: How big is the show floor? I'm primarily there to shop for Optimus Prime stuff and wont be spending any time at panels or anything. Would that be enough time ya think to see all the dealer booths?

    Thnaks for any info!

    Roll Out!

    5 and a half hours should be enough time to get a good look at the dealer room, though you'd be depriving yourself of the rest of the convention experience.

    The dealer room is usualy pretty spacious with enough space to get around and check what people have, alot of dealers aren't setup very well and its sometimes dificult to trully see what they have (especially the first day)

    Yes, it gets packed. Especially earlier in the day.

    Pete@Botcon does not release attendance numbers but he wrote to me that the attendance last year was the largest ever.
