    I don't really think there's any reason we couldn't have a meet at Frankies...
    It doesn't have to be a "'con" so to speak...the big room in the back as I recall had plenty of room for us...good food, and a bar...
    I think it would be nice to set something up...we used to do these more often, and honestly, it's been a good while since I've seen any of you.
    I like meeting up with you guys in a more casual, less advertised setting.

    That's what we did at Frankies before it became a con, so I'd be down with that if we just wanted to have a meet-up at Frankies in the big room again.

    Whenever winter decides to let us go here. >.<;

    I'd guess we'd have to see how far out their big room is reserved til.

    Nothing of interest at Burnsville Target according to my wife, but it safe to assume she maybe doesn't know what to look for. XD

    Include me.. even with the use of a snowblower.. my lower back gets killed..
    Studio series figures have hit the Sticks. All the first wave.. bought Grimlock. Will be the only version of this figure I will own. Worth the wait I guess.
    Got my $60.00 MPM Barricade.. seams like legit Hasbro figure.. I think it is cheap do to a paint app error and fix? See pic.. IMG_20180415_022733936.jpg

    I'm up for a Meetup when the weather is better. Plus, I'm ready for the next Frankiecon as well.. Trypticon has been training, and is ready for more racing.

    So does anyone know how much it would cost to rent out the large room at Frankie's for a meet-up?

    Otherwise, another idea I was thinking could be Pizza Ranch. The one near me has large rooms for stuff.

    If anyone sees a Trypticon at Ollies for the $12.99-ish price point, hook a brother up.

    Well the knock off works for me .. I have a loose shoulder. Which I guess Future will fix.. Cool figure.. I don't understand why they didn't just remove the one tampo.. instead of applying black over the police in the wrong spot? He is a good counter part to BB.

    I've never even seen an Ollie's, let alone a Trypticon in one. Do we even have any in MN?

    They're prolly not super worried about accuracy. I usually skip KO's as it's kind of a morally grey area (well, sometimes. Other times you don't want to drop $100+ for a 2nd-hand HA Soundwave), but I got this one for some reason and I don't regret it.

    Picked up SS Crowbar, Stinger Grimlock from Target on White Bear/94 this am. Also snagged a Blackwing. They still had a SS Starscream and Optimus Prime. Did not see Blackout unfortunately.

    How is Crowbar? I thought the original Berserker mold totally sucked, but people seem to like him.
