    Hey

    This is very odd, I'm missing my first Botcon in ten years

    So bizzare seeing pictures from the show and not being there

    Anybody else who usually goes and is not this year feeling a bit odd?

    To my friends at the show, have a great time, really gutted about not seeing you all!
    Oh and can somebody pick me up the Botcon animated style T-shirt in XL?
    (Also if you have any exclusive toys you want to sell, let me know!)

    :cry  :cry  :cry  :cry  :cry  :cry  :cry  :cry  :cry  :cry  :cry  :cry

    I didn't make it either this year after attending the last four and it feels weird. I like reading everything about botcon on this website to get my fix though. I remember my wife and I meeting you and telling me you wanted to see a Packers game at the dallas show. Is Favre retired for sure? I'll see you next year Paul.

    I think Sol Fury lives relatively close to you, maybe hit him up for a shirt to save on shipping.


    I think your best bet for toys will be ebay. Most people I have seen have both sides of their pass stamped, which means they already got both sets, and aren't yet allowed to get another. I think it is pretty close to sold out.

    I will be trying to be there next year.

    This is the first year I've missed since 2000. Although I've missed a BotCon or two before, it really does feel odd missing one after going to so many for so many years.

    I'm definately going to next years though!

    I wanted to go, but couldn't get away. Thus far, I've only been fortunate enough to get to go to one (Botcon '06), but man... once you go to one, you want to go to all of them! (I keep telling my wife "imagine a room full of shoes, and all of them are brands you like and in your size." She got the picture.)

    I wish I could have been there too but school, money and location reasons stopped me. Hopefully I can be there next year doing it right that time unlike last year where I only hit up the dealer room on Saturday.

    I'm right there with you Hitch...yeah, I've missed a few, but this is the first one since '98 that I've spent sitting at home (and going to work) during. It just feels odd to read reports online.

    I WILL be there next year though. :D
