    This was my first Botcon and all I can say is WOW!!!!! I have really enjoyed myself. My family had a wonderful time. With that being said I wanted to say thank you to everyone for helping me not feel lost in the crowd and to actually have someone to talk to. I hope to see you again in person sometime in the future. If anyone is every in the Morgatown WV area please let me know. :D  It has been a blast!!! So again everyone thank you for helping me adjust. I would to personally thank the following people, ( if I forgot your Screenname just tell me and I will gladly add it to the list as some of you I knew via face and not screenname.)

    First a warm thank you to Vangelus and his mom for putting up with me and my kids. He truely helped me not feel like I was a fish out of water. I hope your mom had fun on her birthday. Tell her we said hi.

    A special thank you to Hi_Q as he was the first TFW person I met and made me feel at home.

    A special thank you to MegaMus and his partner in crime (insert lame joke here) gen1fan for a wonderful parts party and good deals on stuff. I GOT THIS BOX OF JUNKERS FOR CHEAP!! remember that?? LOL!

    And also I would like to thank the following people for making me feel like part of the family:

    DMK a very special thank you!
    Draven a very special thank you!
    Lupis Convoy (who loved my bar exclusives so much that he had me sign his badge) a very special thank you!
    TrickyDisco
    Liokasier
    shibamura_prime
    Sidecutter
    xZOAx
    King_Grimlock


    I hope everyone had a wonderful time. I hope you all enjoyed the bar exclusives i was handing out. If you did not get one I am sorry. Of course that is what makes them exclusive.... limited numbers. ;) 

    Peace and again thank you!!!!!

    I love my Cheeseburger Dinosaur! It's seriously earned a spot on my exclusives shelf, which I'll prove once I get off my lazy ass and get pics of my collection room. XD

    I'm glad that you had a blast at Botcon, and hopefully you will be able to come to next years show as well. Maybe wishfully thinking but I hope it's up in pitttsburgh, pa so I can see some family members as well. Well I pm you cause there maybe be some items I will need for customs down the road

    Opps, sorry I was typing so fast I forgot to put your name in. It will be corrected as of right now. ;)  As far as the lame joke goes, that was not about you it was about the phrase 'partner in crime'. ;) 
    Hopefully!! If it is in Pitts I know I will be there. :D  :D  :D

    Yes you must go. to help you out I will define the phrases for you.

    Parts Party- A get together in a hotel room where 'con attendees swap, buy, and/or sell TFs. The transaction can be for a complete, incomplete, ok condition, destroyed, piece and/or weapons of said TF and/or other TF goodness such as KOs, bar exclusives (see below), mugs, hats, etc.

    Bar Exclusives*- An "Exclusive" toy handed out to fellow TFW2005 members by someone that has a whole bunch of transforming toys and wants to share with his fellow board members. These toys do not have to be made or endorsed by hasbro. They can be KOs, older Mcdonald toys that transform into dinosaurs, or whatever else may be on hand. They are just handed out in the spirit of friendship and to make everyone have a goodtime.

    *- The Bar exclusive was started by me, and hopefully it will become a new TFW2005 tradition. So if next year if I am unable to go can someone please get me the bar exclusive?? ;) 

    Hope that helps you out.
    Peace

    Hey Wallace it's Bob. Botcon was a Blast it was great to meet you, your wife and your boys. Its awesome that they are so into Transformers and customizing like you. And I stopped at 7 stores on the way home with not one animated sighting so that Starscream was a no go.

    I'll say thanks to everyone who bought a TFW polo/hat/t-shirt or one of our other polos. I hope you all enjoy them.

    To everyone else...you suck!

    I kid, I kid.

    Thanks for everyone for helping Kristen have a great birthday, she really had a great time Friday.
