    Well, I usually show up a couple hours after the doors opne (to avoid the giant line-up), so alot of the good stuff is gone before I get there. Last year, MP Megs was sold out in an hour. I can't remember if there was Japenese stuff, though the deals were pretty decent. Depends on the seller. I got a complete Warpath for $10 CAD, and a complete white G1 Jetfire and Gnaw for $260. Just get there early.

    It isn't Botcon, it's Transformerscon. Completely different convention.

    I got both a G1 Jetfire and G1 Gnaw for the $260. Both are complete and mint.

    Gnaw's an expensive bugger, and Jetfire is a little up there. I think I got a good deal. He was asking $300

    From what I hear it's going to be the best show yet too with lot's of new and exciting goodies planned. So for all those people looking to drive or fly in from out of town definitely try and make the trip because its going to be an awesome show.

    Just remember for all non-Canadians to get those passport applications in now.

    A little later in the year than normal but I'll be there, hope there isn't any major traffic problems since it's closer to the summer kick-off.

    Wonder why it's in June this year.... well that is around the time the next Transformers movie is to begin production.......

    From what I have heard from Super_Megatron, TFcon is put up so it does not interfere with BotCon.
    Since BotCon is in the spring, it makes perfect sense to have TFCon take the summer spot.

    Wow, just, wow. How did you manage that one? Does this mean you are one step closer to becoming an "Official" Event? (That would make things interesting)
