Found the Urban Camo Ruination set at the Puyallup Wal*Mart - there are five there. I couldn't bring myself to buy it, even though I really like the color scheme. The same store also had the new Mirage-Bot and Speed-Bot II Go-Bots. They are in-between the price points of the basics and the Aero-Bot brothers ($11.73 or something like that)

The Lakewood Target had the new 50pc puzzles of Smokescreen, Red Alert, Perceptor, and Cyclonus.

Well I LIVE in Woodinville (I've never run into Artie though), so I visit the Target on a regular basis.
I deliver papers at night so I'm usually awake in the mid-afternoon.
And I've been 27 now for 11 days

Well, there is a litttle thing called CybCon 2003 that's happening in Auburn one week prior to BotCon. Greg Gaub and I are working out the details right now. We've had our own exclusive toy for a couple years now and are looking to make this year's get-together bigger than ever. Well, not too big mind you.

Sounds good. All I need to get is a car. Is there more info on that?

Well, the Cybertronian Conference is Greg Gaub's Yahoo-based TF club of sorts. It's been around since 1997 I believe and can be found here: Cybertronian Conference For more information, check out the main link from Greg's site here: CybCon FAQ

The past few years, those of us in "the know" got together at greg's house during BotCon Saturday and had a good time. We went on toy runs, ate pizza and barbecue, played video games, chatted with people online at BotCon, etc.

My first time at one of these was in 2001 and it was a blast. The turnout was low (about 5 or 6 of us total), but we had a great time. However, I thought it would be prudent to have an exclusive toy. So, with help from Zobovor of ZMFTS! fame, we created G1 Scavenger from BM Scavenger. You can find out more about that toy here and here.

CybCon 2002 was a little disappointing in that only Greg and myself were there, but the toys were better than ever. You can get more on that here.

So, this year we want to make things better than ever. We're not holding it on BotCon Saturday and actually renting a hall in Auburn (since that's where Greg lives) and hoping to get some of the toy/import/comic dealers in the area to attend. Everything's still preliminary in design, but you can all the information here. If you have any more questions, feel free to ask. Or join the CybCon mailing list and you'll be guaranteed the info.

Never having been to the Tri-Citis, I couldn't say. Auburn is between Tacoma and Seattle (more Tacoma really). So, if I'm looking at the map right, it might be a couple hours drive for you.

Cool! I'd actually be able to attend that, since once again it looks like Botcon is out of the question for me

That's what we're here for.

Oh, if you have any music preferences, now is the time to get them in.
