    Like if everyone on these boards were invited to a grand gathering to meet eachother, like our own personal botcon? Now I know it's out of budget and most likely impossible to do (Seeing that we members all across the globe) but just thinking about it would be cool. I would love to meet many of you in person :D 

    If we were to do something like this, where would we hold it?

    Given the current state of the boards it would probably be held at Chuck E Cheese's.

    Wait.... Aren't you the guy with bully issues?


    Anyway, it'll be an interesting gathering. We'll have nutkickers, bookwhackers and guys who go screaming "i want news credit oh shit oh shit shit happen".

    I agree. The best thing however would be to post a thread at the meetup forum and start a local meetup. I've met many boardmembers this way. It's a great way to meet people and sometimes it feels like a mini Botcon. We would meet somewhere to eat then buy, sell and trade at the parking lot.

    I wish I was a part of the TFW2005 community back when BotCon '07 opened up in Providence RI. I live like five minutes from there. Best Transformers experience I ever had. Or knew some of the important members on other TF message boards, youtube etc. Michael Bay pretty much got me back into the franchise and I thank him greatly for that. He showed us our beloved franchise in it's true glory.

    Any of you guys attended BotCon 07?

    I've been waiting for you to show up. Just kidding, I know that's a hike and a half. Boardmember $5Hotrod$ would drive about an hour to get to one. Heck, Alpha & Omega drove down(about an hour and a half) north Jersey to hang out.

    On the upside, there'd be a 9pm curfew because it's a school night, and no one really wants to get grounded and lose their internet privileges for another weekend again.



    Yes, and it was epic.

    Epic indeed. I got tons of stuff there. Most of it was freebies, though I purchased Alternators Prime (Which I sold because it was a P.O.S.) and Swindle. I saw Peter Cullen in person, though the line was too damn long to get an autograph unfortunatley.

    I agree with this 100%! We did one and then another and so on and we all made some good friends out of it. It also helps to have people to find things for you that you would otherwise miss. Heck, maybe we'll meet at the next Botcon...

    I've been known to make fun of those Hot Topic/emo/scene kids at malls.
