    I met:

    SMOG- I met the guy outside of his apartment. It was -20 degree celsius, he had no winter coat. He's just that cool. He's my plastic crack "AA" advisor/brother.
    Protoman- Tall dude. Looks busy all the time but makes time for everyone from the sightings thread. Let's everyone hang out infront of his booth and he gave me rebates.
    herooftheday- Awesome dude as well. He does not look like nerdy type either and I'm pretty sure he showers before meeting other peeps.
    Freedomgundam- Fun to talk with about TFs and customs.

    Guskd, Liokaiser, Mayhem Prime, DethPike, Darthdevious, Shaba, Autocon2076, Squall42080, BWDinobot, Oldscut78, aledromo, plus a few others that I don't remember (I know the people, and I might even remember a first name or what I bought from them or sold to them, but like hell if I remember a board name).

    I think a lot of people that went to NJCC will remember me if they saw me, but I never really publicize my board name at any of the events I go to.

    I almost never attend convetions. Whenever I do, maybe I'll pop in a toy convention for a half an hour and will say who I am on the boards.

    I've met other fans, but I didn't ask them if they were members. Plus it was my first convention and I was playing in a parts bin pretending I knew what I was doing. I was too busy looking like an idiot to mention my username.

    No. I've come close to crossing paths with a couple peeps from the NY sightings thread, though.

    Mostly had brief interactions with members at Botcon 2010 here in Orlando but there are a few that stand out:

    wgoodman- Quickly became pretty good friends. I think we had PMed once or twice regarding Animated stuff and later Collectors' Club Cheetor. We met up at a local store and talked for as long as our kids would let us. We mostly kept in touch via text messages for a while especially whenever one of us would find some TF we were excited about. Eventually got the families together and hit it off really well. Looking forward to the next time we do dinner, mini-golf, or whatever.

    Optimusfan- we sat in the hallway outside Megamus' parts party in 2010 for about an hour and a half talking about all sorts of stuff. Bumped into him and his wife a few times over that weekend. Nice guy and a deals/sales/coupons guru.

    Shibamura Prime- Funny guy. He had a table in the Artists' Alley and I stopped by to say hi and appreciate his drawings. He almost talked me into buying that Chevy Aveo transformer (Swerve?) for pretty cheap but I passed on it for whatever reason. If I ever achieve my totally hypothetical fantasy of opening a comic shop, I'm going to commission Silas for a window mural or something.

    Chris Mowry- Dude signed a bunch of comics for me and we spent a while talking about the writing/editing process and about his love for Godzilla. Great guy and a Sabres fan too!

    Dan Khanna- Not sure if he's a TFW member, but he was really nice so I figure he's worth mentioning. We spoke for a while about the art pieces he had worked on for the convention. I wish I had more money to spend on his awesome prints, but eventually settled on a great group shot of the Dinobots that I have framed in my game room.

    ams- I don't think he posts here anymore, but he was very active on the boards at the time. He had a booth set up near the entrance to the dealer room and was pretty busy selling a ton of his collection off so I only got to say hi and thank him for a Concept Camaro Bumblebee he had stashed for me at a local Kohl's store a couple of years earlier when people were going cuckoo bananas for those.

    Robticon- another member I haven't seen on here in a long time but he was fairly active on the FL Sightings thread for a while when Generations and RtS were starting to hit stores. I hooked him up with an RtS Jazz and we met up to make the exchange.

    I was supposed to meet Dran0n and hang with him for a day or two next week, but it doesn't look like that's going to happen after all... :(

    Wajo357 at a TRU. The funny thing though is that I learned that it was him a while later in the NJ Transformers Sightings thread and that we totally ignored each other.

    Same here. I'm sure I'd miss people if I tried to name them all. I will say that I had the honor of meeting the poster I'm quoting back in 2008.
