    I only got to meet a few of the board members. Magmatron22, ams, and I believe Jerodimus was sitting next to me at the Hasbro Designers panel. Everyone I met was really nice, I can't wait until the day I get to go to another one. :D

    I could be wrong, but I don't think they did that even last year, but still, yeah, why not?

    Also, help my memory out, didn't Hasbro give a flashdrive with official images shown at the presentation once before? Man, that would be sweet and awesome right about now.

    Met a ton of people there, and a lot of TFWers in particular. Best time I've ever had in my life and I thank everyone that made it possible and everyone that I met that made it a good experience.

    TFW did a great job covering the show. Unfortunately, it didn't feel like one of the more exciting shows, since there didn't seem to be a lot of new product shown. It may have felt different if I were there.

    I had a great time. Friday and Saturday nights down at the Lobby bar were fun. I met a lot of cool guys and got to see a lot of cool toys. It was interesting to have this kind of access to the Hasbro guys (even if the PR heavy is standing over their shoulders). My son got his picture taken with Stan Bush. Got to play the new game and talk to Activision guy about how "war" and "adventure" relate to each other. Got to see/meet guys from some podcasts and just about none of them looked anything like I would have guessed. It was very nice to see that many TF fans in one place, all having fun and generally being excellent to each other (except for that seller right next to the front entrance to "stylin". That dude was a bit of a jerk). I bought lots of cool toys. Overall, it was the best Botcon ever, because it was the one I got to go to.
