i understand he has a family to feed so i'm not even going to rag on him for showing up almost every time, but i'm really wondering if it's actually worth the time and effort for him to show up. his airfare and hotel stay for him and family gotta cost at least a thousand or two, his cd selling at $10-15 a pop, he'll needs to sell somewhere about 1-200 just to break even, and from what i seen he just doesn't generate even that much foot traffic. am i missing something? is his trip paid for by botcon? btw i love the fact his kids have to sit there for 4 days looking bored in a convention full of transformers nerds, i'm not even being negative about the kids, i'm just saying i understand their boredom.
