    Anyone live in lower Michigan around the Genesee County area? Flint, Burton, Gran Blanc, Birch Run, etc. I was wondering who all would be up for a meeting to hang out and hold our own mini convention / get together.

    In case some of you don't know me or haven't seen me post much I am the owner of PredaconEmpire.com

    I live in Michigan, albeit I'm in Washtenaw county, just a half hour away from Ann Arbor. But hey, as long as I have directions, I'd be glad to come up your way to hang out. Besides, I could try and get to know some fellow Michiganers who love Transformers.

    Heh, just this last summer somebody who lived in around the Detroit area stole a car and crashed it right through our fence -- he was so drunk, he smashed that car up and nearly got himself killed when a steel/iron fencing post went right through the windshield. So yeah... get that crime rate down, WAY down, and I'd be glad to move to Detroit.

    Yeah Flint isn't much better man. I used to live there but it's still about 20 minutes from Grand Blanc which is where I reside. Flint is full of the cop training for the rest of the state. There is so much crap going down there. Plus the school systems suck so bad you can cheat the system to pass high school.

    I live around say fenton, flushing, flint, burton, flint township, mt morris.

    Anywho anyone else interested in a possible hang out some time? I just think it'd be cool to get a group of TF fans together. I don't personally know any around here. LOL people that know me think I am weird for liking them.

    Anything anyone would like to do/where to go, if/when this happens?

    I'll be sure to come! Just as long as I have directions to wherever it is we're going to hang out, that and the date and time. Be sure to try and make it a weekend thing, since I have classes twice a week at Washtenaw Community College, and generally if I'm going to hang out I'd prefer it be done on a weekend. Don't know what we could do if we manage to get together, but I'm sure we can come up with something. Let me know if/when such a meetup will happen, 'kay?

    Not a problem man, just looking to see if we can gain any additional fans to hang out with as well.

    I'm quite surprised nobody else has drop a line saying that they'd come... I thought there might be quite a few of us Michigan TF fans... oh well, give it some time.

    I live in Allen Park, but I go and hang out with fastballspecial since he works at the Comic Box in Taylor on Eureka, and Maximus_Prime goes there too. Like to hear from more fans.

    It's Comic Rox in Taylor on Eureka.

    If you live in Allen Park you should check out Big Ben's Comix on your way home from Comic Rox, at least they carry TF's.

    Yeah I don't know why I keep calling it Comic Box, when it's Rox. I keep catching myself saying that

    Hey. I'm in Allen Park myself. Didn't realize there was anymore of us here. And Big Ben's is my store of choice, just cause it's so close. I stop in to Comic Rox anytime I'm going to Southland. But I don't go to Southland much now that the Fairlane Green has Best Buy.

    Yeah, Southland has definitely incurred some drastic changes over the years.

    Big Bens was my spot to search for back issues when I was comic-crazy, good discounts if you're sociable as well.

    Comic Rox, and Big Bens both carry a good variety of stock, I can usually catch a better deal at Bens because I've been dropping in there and shamelessly running my mouth FOREVER!

    One of these days I need to drive on over and check out your shop. Where exactly is it? Shoot me a pm with the address if you get a chance.

    I've been meaning to stop by Bens shop and saying Hi anyways. I used to work at Time Travelers(Yes, I know....) a long time back and used to see ben all the time.

    I don't buy comix much anymore, but I still stop in at Bens every now and again.

    I can remember passing on the Pallisades Devi statue at Bens for $140.00.
    I am still kicking myself for that one.

    dlatkow: Comic Rox is on the North side of Eureka, about a block East of Allen Rd.
    Big yellow sign with red lettering---can't miss it.

    Damn, Time Travlers takes me way back. I remember Ben from his days at "Comics Oasis". I used to live in Detroit and would go to "Comics Plus" out in Dearborn. I have gotten great deals at Big Bens, Gary always hooks me up nicely. Plowking, we have probably seen each other there, where abouts do you live?

    I will try to swing over to the shop and say Hi.

    I worked at T.T. for about 4 years somewhere around 93-97. That was a real fun place to work. And it was before Transformers became crazy in both price and popularity so I was able to amass quite a collection.
    Back then all people wanted were old stws, marvel figs and multicover-bagged-hologram-Foiled comic books.
