    Anyone in the Cincy-Dayton area want to do another local meet-up soon? It's been about 8 months since we've held one.

    if you guys still wanna do the monthly meet up I'm game. I feel the last couple of meetings we had last year was a flop and not many people/collectors showed up.
    It will have to be on Saturdays around the same time as we had last year. The only thing I can say is, we can give it a shot, but if we have a dwindling crowd the first couple of meetings then game over or something drastic will have to be done to draw in more people/collectors/fans...

    Let me know

    That's fine about the time, for at least me. I didn't attend the October meet-up, but it sounds like that one didn't go over well because of the convention in Sharonville on the same day.
    And perhaps a meet-up once a month was too much. Perhaps a meet-up every other month would help solve any fatigue issues?

    Could someone pick up me a Perceptor at Target since all Transformers toys is 15% off. I would gladly give your money back. I did just come back from Target on Feedwire Rd and only deluxe they have is 2 Triggerhappy. I will try to hit Target in beavercreek tomorrow if I can.

    Thanks

    Slingshot,

    I think maybe we should find a different location to hang out? I feel Tri-county mall didn't have the vibe or feel? or we can change up the location: like one month in Cincy and the next month in Dayton? Anyone care to brainstorm on locations or places???

    I think we need to plan and make sure it does conflict with other conventions, last year one of the meet ups conflicted with tfcon USA. I only made it to one meet up, I would like to have some more but we need an activity besides setting at a food court. How do you guys feel about meeting up at different toy dealers? Transfan2s, Mike's Vintage Toys, etc?

    I agree with you that Tri County wasn't fitting. I would offer up TransFan2's store, but it's too small and I don't think they would want us to take up their space. Forest Fair Mall is abandoned and wouldn't fit. I'd offer up Kenwood Towne Center, but that's too far south for everyone coming from Dayton.
    Does anyone have any ideas for a potential meet-up center?

    Guys,

    Here are a few suggestions I came up with:

    Dave & Busters could be doable for us! plus its a place to meet up grab some grub and hang out and play games

    Maybe the Cincy Mall outlet in Mason? Just a thought

    Mikes Collectable in Springboro is a good suggestion, but its the same issue as TransFan: Small place and no room

    anybody else have Ideas? I would have to do research and get back with everyone

    Thanks to everyone in the last 9 or 10 posts for getting my hopes up when I see "new" sightings in OHIO but then I click the link and find out it's about your little get together/meet up. There is a Forum under Community called 'Transformers Conventions and Get Togethers'. Sightings is for when we see TFs in stores so other members can join in the hunt.

    Target in Fairview Park has a TR Skyshadow if anyone in the area is hunting for him. Found voyager TR Megatron and Prime at North Olmsted's Target. Picked up both. Been looking for That Megatron for what seems like forever. Broadside seems to be everywhere you can throw a rock around here.

    And this why I don't come to this site much anymore! Too many whiners! But its OK to talk about buying Transformers sets from BBTS and TFsource and breaking them up to sell them on the sightings forum? Shouldn't that be on the Buy/Sell/Trade forum Hmmmmm.
    or talking about Botcon or any other event and that should on another forum right?

    Fucking Do as I say, not as I do bullshit!

    Shin this is NOT directed towards you, trying to make a point here.
