    Hi mechs and femmes,
    Does anyone know if there is an age range for the cosplay contest? Like is this 18 & under type event? Asking because I am going in my costume but also really wanted to attend the "Why We Cry for Optimus Prime..." Panel.
    Will anyone be there recording that panel? If so, could I beg a copy of your recording so I can watch later?
    Please and "tanks"!
    Have a blessed day!

    Not sure why it cost so much to get into a room full of vendors and nothing else. At least I was able to trade for the NIB G1 boughts I brought home, not spending any additional money.

    I had an absolute blast. I had no idea what I was getting in to, or how absolutely lucky I was. I spent so much time chatting with Greg and Paul it was unbelievable.

    I got to sit next to Paul (with Greg right on the other side of him) for the Friday night movie. I literally got to chat about my favorite parts of the 1986 Transformers film with Perceptor and Grimlock. I got to bitch to them about how shocking it was to watch Brawn, Prowl, Ironhide, etc die as a kid.

    I then got to attend a panel with them where they talked about the old days and took questions from the audience (including mine). It was a really small and intimate room.

    Then I got to audition, in my own made up Transformer voices, with the actual Grimlock and Perceptor, in character. Like, I got to perform with some of my childhood heroes, and then get
    encouragement from them. Just crazy.

    Then I got to sit with them again at the happy hour, where they told even more stories and just shared their life with us.

    Then I got to sit at the same table as Greg for the dinner, and there were like maybe 8 of us, so I got to chat a bunch with him again.

    And then we got to perform the script with them after dinner. So cool!! And then said farewellls and chatted even more.

    I also got selfies with both of them at the vendors tables of course, where they were more than happy to just chat if there wasn’t a line. And Greg signed my MP Grimlock.

    That’s just not how normal conventions work.

    Anyway, definitely a once in a life time experience. It was so truly great.

    Both Paul and Greg were really great people, always taking the time to deal with us nerds in the nicest ways, and always just friendly and cheerful.
