    The wait is nearly over….

    The 2006 Toys “R” Us Transformers Fan Event is just days away. If you have never experienced a Toys “R” Us Transformers Fan Event before, this is your year. If you are a veteran of our festival, trust us when we say you haven’t seen anything yet!

    We have combined a fantastic group of sponsors, activities, prizes, and giveaways that is far superior to any event we have promoted in the past. Whether you are looking for new Cybertron or vintage figures from years past, Toys “R” Us and the Toy Addict has you covered. You’ll find free comic books by IDW, a chance to win two complimentary memberships from the Official Transformers Fan Club, and a host of other incredible prizes. If you are an Attacktix enthusiast, Joeattacktix will be conducting your first demonstration of the Transformers Attacktix game. Plus, with the help of some generous local collectors and Buddy’s Home Furnishings, we will have a display of Transformers toys that will make your heart skip a beat.

    Do you still need convincing? Well, how about if I said that this event is FREE? That’s right, I said it. This event has FREE ADMISSION. Our partner Chick-fil-A is even offering you discounted food. Think about it, all you need now is gas and spending money. It is just our way of saying thank you for supporting this event throughout the years.

    So remember, The 2006 Toys “R” Us Transformers Fan Event on Saturday, July 1st from 11:00 AM to 5:00PM.

    One more for the road and then the rest is silence……..

    Hey Junior! I'm stoked! I noticed the buy a basic ad banner on the site, if you've still got Scattorshot then yeah I'm all over it. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for Primus to make a showing as well. Gah! I feel the crazy coming on.

    See, you should do the smart thing, like I did, and move from Columbus to Florida. I still miss Laughing Ogre Comics and Max and Erma's Restaurant, but I do OK without 'em.

    Big thanks to Junior for putting this on again, though I'm sorry that it might be the last one. It was great seeing lots of folks from the boards here, chatting with other fans, letting a mom know the latest news, watching kids play Attacktix, scarfin' some Chik-Fil-A, and drooling over the collections on display- that Devastator statue is something to behold! With the movie coming out next year, I'm starting to think about putting together a small event at my theatre for the weekend leading up to the movie.

    -Tony!
    Least favorite part: going 0-fer on prizes again.
