    Before you buy anything at the dealer room, I highly recommend looking around the whole room for the best deals. There will be some totally crappy prices there, but there will be some awesome prices there, you just need to look.

    Beyond that, if you can find a MP Grimlock (for a good price), I'd say go for it.

    Don't buy ROTF stuff. Not saying that as some sort of "ZOMG!!! Bayformers am teh suck!!!" statement, but they're going to be on shop shelves for the next year. Better to take advantage of the opportunity to buy stuff you won't normally see.

    Like City Commander.

    I'd do unholy things for a City Commander Set.

    Speaking of Fansproject, Anyone know When FanProject Wreck-Gar,Springer,Rodimus Prime Upgrades come out?

    Buy no Alternity or Binaltechs. Both suck.

    Also, get a Music Label Soundwave and Reprolabels. :D

    Cut and paste right from my want list:

    Aug/Sept FP Defender Springer upgrade
    Oct/Nov FP Protector Rodimus upgrade
    1Q 2010 FP Collector Wreck-Gar upgrade

    If you don't have Henkei Rodimus, pick him up at Botcon. He'll jump in price after the Protector armor is released.

    The release date? It's based on this post, although I'm a little less optimistic than they are. But they admitted these were only estimates at TFcon and hard dates would need to wait until production.

    -Music Label Soundwave (Spark Blue)
    -MP Grimlock
    -City Commander Armor
    -this years exclusives

    Theres so much stuff at the convention to see and buy I woudln't make any decisions till you get there, i'd recommend going for stuff you can't just get from an online dealer (unless you can get a good deal near the end of the con) if thats all you want I'd suggest picking up the exclusives instead then sell them after the con (for a profit) then use that to buy whatever you want from the online dealers.
