    Does anyone have any interest in Transformers T-Shirts (most size L and never worn)? Prices vary from $5-15, including a handful of Botcon shirts. I also have a bunch of posters and lithographs for sale from dreamwave and IDW artists. The biggest one I'm looking to part with is the one with all the Alternators. I also have the 2 dreamwave wall scrolls (one is war within, the other is dinobots I think). If there's any interest, I will toss them in my car for Saturday.

    I've gotten a few 3rd party items in lately if anyone wants me to bring them. They include Rogue, Optimus Primal by generations toys, the MP Movie Hot Rod by TFEVO, and Legendary Toys KO of MPM-04.

    I wouldn't mind taking a look at the Optimus Primal or the TFEVO movie Hot Rod.

    I don't think I've gotten anything new in that people would want to take a look at. Maybe the most recent two sets of Unique Toys "Palm Warriors," but that's about it.

    Anyone want to buy an oversized MP Grimlock? I have one that was only transformed once and then put back in the box. It is the second version (black on the thighs, but then then the silver paint of the MP 8X on the outside). I can't think of anything else I'd have for sale. I have a Titans Return Overlord that's been transformed once if anyone missed out on that...but that'd be it. Anyone else have anything for sale?

    Anyone have a spare MPM-05 Barricade for sale, new or used? My preorder from amazon was canceled last night.

    You too. I already asked Paik if he had any and he does not. I am just going to order one from Eddie and call it quits. Getting tired of trying to get one for under a $100. At least I will have one that way.

    Is anyone still planning on going to TFCon Toronto? I'm in the Buffalo, NY region at the moment without a passport. I've read conflicting information if I really can enter Canada and return to the US without one. Any advice? If I can, I may try to do a day trip next Saturday for the show.

    If I cannot go, could someone pick me up a maketoys g2 jazz? I can paypal money in advance. Thanks!

    Pretty sure you can go to Canada on US ID.

    From what I can tell, that seems to be true, but not on the return - US Customs wants to see a passport or enhanced ID. What I don't understand is if a driver's license isn't good enough to get into the US, what would happen if someone asked Canada to deport someone back to the US?

    I think he's back in another week or so. Generally we spend 2-3 weeks planning.

    Yeah. It seems to be about the right time. We can start by figuring out the geographical location for the meet. Since we were north last time a more southerly local would be logical.

    I am down for any geographic location. You guys have yet to pick somewhere that requires more than a 45 minute drive for me. I need to protect August 18 and 19, but any other weekend should work.

    What about Stafford? That would get us well south. Assuming most would rather not go that far, what about Froghops in Burke?

    I know I'm not a core part of the group, but I work almost every Saturday right around when the meetup usually is. I haven't meant to be remote Allen. If we can plan early enough in advance I can try to trade coverage.

    I am all for getting the date and time solidified as soon as possible. I am trying to schedule around fantasy football drafts and family plans and I don't want to get myself double booked.

    How about the 25th? That should give people plenty of time to deconflict.

    The weekend after that would be better for me. There’s already scheduling drama that weekend at work which will make trading out harder.
