    Usually there's a thread about this by now...

    Most years it's loaded with recent Japanese releases, but there really hasn't been all that much coming out in the past few months... And everyone has had a full month jump start on most of the movie toys...

    So what is everyone hoping to score at this year's Botcon?

    Picking up the rest of the Classics toys that we didn't get in the UK, Managed to score a Mirage and Cliffjumper recently, just need a Grimlock and Ramjet now, I figure with the attendees set it'll make a wicked display to have them all lined up.
    I also plan to get what movie deluxes and voyagers are available to save money on buying them back home.
    May also be tempted by a G1 sixshot, always fancied one. Most of my other wants I've picked up already :)

    While some people did answer what I ask, many were clearly shooting for the moon.

    I'm not looking "dream" purchase - I'm looking realistic list here... And I'll admit that part of this is because my friends and I just purchased a 4th booth and we want to know that we are bringing what people want.

    Also, that thread's been dead for nearly 2 months...

    Some g1 parts to finish off some bots.
    Maybe some boxes for some of the g1.
    Other than that just be looking at what grabs my eye. or that great buy you can not pass up

    An idea, then, might well be to let people know what you are bringing, and see what reaction you get. I'd be interested to know, definitely.

    Besides a lot of drinks and babes:

    I need to get the Classics Devastator (!@$$ Wal-Mart in St. Cloud never got it)

    I also need a limb for E Devastator and Superion.

    Beyond that I really can't think of too much.

    This year... not much. If I can find a Kiss Play Rodimus for cheap, sure, but otherwise not much.

    I'd like to finish my Beast Wars (just need Jetstorm sealed) and work on my G2 collection. Mostly looking for Hero Prime, Dinobots (all color variants), and Constructicons. Makes it hard for collecting as I want everything sealed.

    I'd be surprised if I saw a sealed G2 Seaspray (purple variant).

    I'll certainly try and get more detail later but...

    Most of my toys will be G1 thru BW. Most of it is loose, but I have a bunch of loose with box toys and a few nice boxed items - The nicest being a G1 Megatron, stickers unapplied.
    Loose I should have all the Dinobots, most the G1 cars, most of the Seeker Jets, most of the big guys (Devastator, Omega, Metroplex, Scorponok, Predaking, Max, etc.) Also a handful of complete *master toys, lots of minicars, some cassettes... Most of the G1 toys will be complete or close to it.

    BW toys will be a wide variety, most loose/complete, some not quite complete... Some will be still packages.

    Also bringing a stash of G1 parts for trade or sale. Maybe some Tech Specs, too. Probably bring a junk-yard bin again, too... Tho' I don't know where I'll put it...

    I also have thrown in some Deluxe Megazords, an 80's metal voltron, some E-frames...

    I'm needing a G1 Cyclonus and a bunch of parts. Other than that, it's impulse. Whatever catches my eye. Oh, and the little man's gonna get stuff, too. I've been taking him to the flea market so he can learn to haggle. He does soo much better than me. Must be people's soft spot for kids?

    Priority is looking for G1 Shockwave. Any thing I get after that will depend on how much money I have left over.

    I’m also looking to bring some stuff to sell. RID, Armada, maybe some MISB Alts depends how much room I have in my bag. What ever I bring I do NOT want to take home so I’ll be pricing to sell.

    Aside from the Exclusives to complete my Classics display, I'm looking for the Missiles and Reprolables for my G1 Rubber Tires Metroplex to make him 100% (and scratch a grail off my list). Classics Reprolabels, and the 1st set for Alt Prime. G1 Seeker Bombs, the left side hip piece for Armada Unicron, that's about it unless someone has the 25th Joes there. Maybe some cheaply priced G1 stuff, that's about all I'm getting until all this Movie Stuff is behind us.

    Rework, I may be going for some of your *master stuffs. I've kind of got a hankering for some headmasters, but nothing essential, yet.

    Fair enough, then I'm hoping to find a MISB Pretender Bumblebee, plus any odd G1 Bumblebee merchandise I can add to my collection.
