*raises hand* I'm looking at going to TFCon to continue to meet w/ friends whom I only saw in person @ BotCon, meet/hear VAs, and in the dealer room - I will look for interesting 3P stuff, but also to fill in the gaps in my Official aka Hasbro (or TT) collection. As I stated up-thread, despite living outside a major city, and having 2 Targets and 2 WMs near me - my region is one of the last to get new TFs, and my hometown sucks even worse. There's a board member I regularly hit up/will let me know when there's something interesting available in the multiple Targets & WMs in his area. But even then, he/I miss things or the toys either never appear or fly in & out of stores so fast they're missed. So for some of us, TFCon - Toronto or Chicago - is the current planned meet-up w/ friends made over the years at BotCon. Some of those friends got burned by the FP credit card hacks, so they refused to attend further BCs & only go to TFCon(s). THAT is part of why I go to Cons - of any variety. It's the panels, as well as spending time w/ friends that I don't see any other time, bonding over our shared geekiness where we all 'get it' to some degree, as opposed to our "grown up" lives where folks wonder What the Hell Is Wrong With You? that we still collect toys & wear printed Tshirts.
