    Thanks James. Now here's a question... I have met Razerwire before so I would recognize him. But otherwise, how will we know who to look for at the meetup?

    ... I dunno, look for a bunch of guys who look like Transformers fans?

    Oooh! We can have some Legends class figures on the table! Or bring an MP to save seats!

    ... what? I'm just spitballing, here.

    This is my official confirmation I will be in attendance. Whoever gets there and grabs the table, just let the hostess know it is for the TFW Club; that way people can just say they are there for the TFW Club.

    Put me down as tentative - over the week I've had a nasty cold. If it improves enough by Sunday, I'll be there.

    Hey guys, I'm gonna bring a few items for swap/sale. Duplicates, etc. Feel free to do the same and/or bring your checkbook :wink:

    I shall too but they may balk at us selling in the establishment. The proprietors have at other meetups I've attended. Better to do it in the parking area.

    As far as finding each other, I'll post whatever I'm wearing and what I look like, and get there early so you guys can look for me. Plus I'll have a MOC GDO legends Thundercracker on the table with me, that's a small enough toy that they won't notice when I sell it to Soundwinder (at cost, of course).

    As far as other trades/selling, it probly would be better to do it afterwards outside. I don't think there are rules against selling things in bars but there are rules about gambling and anytime there's money exchanging hands they're going to be suspicious.

    You guys don't want the Squawktalk to go with the Beastbox?

    If neeral doesn't get Beastbox for some reason, I will get both. No reason to get him by himself... but I'll see what happens in person. Maybe I will cave. lol

    I already have a Squawktalk from my childhood; my dumb a** brother decided he was going to have a war reanactment with some of my transformers using model cement and a lighter for special effects. I have been able to replace all but 2 of them and with beastbox it will be down to one - all I need is my beloved hound.

    Maybe I will bring Zaur, Dial, Noizu, and Gurafi to mingle with the other lonely cassette bots. I have two sets but have not been able to find a good home (or someone willing to pay what they are worth) for them yet. The mint in box set are not in Virginia (NEVER to be sold) but my loose set is. Is there anything anyone is looking for in particular?

    That sucks. It's times like that where I'm glad I don't have a brother. :lol 

    I'm kinda in a bind though. I think I'd prefer to sell Squawktalk/Beastbox and Grandslam/Raindance together since it'll be easier to unload both at the same time.
