    Meet-up...what a great idea. I seen a few Marylanders on the site, meeting with you all would be a real treat. Count me in for a future meeting...let me know!

    It was a group effort definitely.
    If you're interested in Alternators I have I'll keep them aside for you and work toward that Premium Leader Prime...no pressure on that, though. If you don't want any let me know what you're looking for (aside from retail stuff that anyone can find) and we'll work something out.

    I'm ok on those, I have a few that I like but, for the most part I want to concentrate on g1 and animated stuff maybe check out a couple of chug or somethin'
    I will make a list but I really need to take some time and do it the right way.

    I'm so disappointed that I couldn't be number seven in that group. Sounds like you guys had fun. Better luck next time. :(  Nez, I can tell you right now that the 5th and 19th would be great days for me too. Further south for the location, the better, just don't bother coming this far south. :lol  Columbia is still doable for me too.

    Think it would be ideal to keep it in a central location so that more folks can come. The more the merrier.

    Feel free to throw some suggestions out here. It's a group effort.

    The group we had Sunday thought Columbia was ideal, more or less, for everyone. That having been said I'm not going to dismiss Annapolis out of hand if the majority would rather go there. I don't think that will be the case, but we'll see.

    Long ramble coming up.

    One thing that may be more important than where (which we can decide fairly quickly) is when...
    I'm out of commission for one reason or another anytime next month except for 9/5 (Sunday before Labor Day), 9/19 two weeks later, and 9/25 the following Saturday. 9/19 or 9/25 are probably the most likely since there are no holidays (secular, anyway) looming directly after. Chosen has sounded off in favor of 9/19. I'd be down for either date, more so for 9/19 than 9/25, but if 9/25 is easier for the majority I'll find a way to make it, with kid in tow if necessary.
    I'll put this out for thoughts about times:

    sunday 9/19 noon
    sunday 9/19 afternoon (4-5ish)
    saturday 9/25 noon (I'd probably miss this timeslot)
    saturday 9/25 afternoon (4-5ish)

    And Anodythe, welcome to the discussion! I couldn't remember your user name and didn't look up the past thread that fizzled out.

    I should be able to make it on those dates as of right now sundays are better than saturdays for me most of the time.

    On another note, I went to TRU in Glen Burnie today and was suprised to find this:

    anyone interested? I have a takara one and thats good enough for me. I am tempted to steal the crown though lol. I only want the retail price for it 74.19 i think. or maybe we could trade? first dibs to my bros from the meetup! first bro to pm gets it. if no one wants it after 24hrs then anyone local is welcome to take it off my hands.

    If you still have it by the next meet I'll take it off your hands. I'm comfy knowing Grimmy's in MD now. I'll find one in due time. Or two.
    Good find!

    So that's...what...two and a half votes (Chosen, easier for whoamidri, and hotspot) for Sunday 9/19 and...one and and half for 9/25 (not as easy for whoamidri, and hotspot). Anyone else want to chime in? Sundays are easier for me, but I'll make 9/25 in the afternoon/evening if that's best. Thoughts?
    And whoamidri...I scooped up a Grimlock.

    I'll be heading to the Baltimore Comic con just to check it out (think Saturday). Let me know if any of you guys plan on being there.

    Good catch! I'm interested, but will let everyone else have dibs first. I'll find them in due time but if you still have them I'm sure someone (looks a few posts up) will snag 'em from you.
    And h17, I'd love to hit the Con...but I doubt it's in the cards.
