I'd like a new Dreadwing since I like his buddy gimmick. Mine is missing Smokescreen now though.

I think even if you were to ignore the political jokes, the BotCon twitter is pretty unprofessional. I mean, it's one thing if you are just a dude on the Internet making youtube videos or posting opinions somewhere, and if that were the case, he can say whatever the hell he wants, but if you're a representative of a company, you really shouldn't act like that. You have a brand image that you need to uphold. After all, Funpub runs the OFFICIAL Transformers convention, and it is sponsored by Hasbro. If I were a Hasbro PR rep, I would probably be pretty pissed at him, because it's kind of hurting the image of the brand. If you are a totally unofficial website, podcast, whatever, say whatever you want man, but if you want to actually sell something, it's probably a bad idea to act like a dick, because then people aren't going to want to buy your stuff. If he wants to say this stuff on a personal account rather than the official BotCon twitter, go ahead hoss, knock yourself out. It's just doing it on an official news source is a humongous faux pas.

Granted, just because one guy said some stuff on twitter wouldn't stop me from going to BotCon, though. I'm not even mad about it to be honest, I personally think the whole thing is just dumb and just kind of makes me roll my eyes. If anything stops me from going, it's the budget and schedule.

Finally got around to looking up what was being talked about in the intro.
Trying so hard not to burst out laughing. There sure must of been "snakes".

I did, I didn't see it, which is why I was asking for a link.
