    Open offer to Cracka J and everyone else on the board, our company is actually located right down River Rd. from the Hyatt Regency where TFcon is at (in the business park behind the fashion outlet mall). PROW took me up on it the other year, so feel free to let me know if it's of interest to anyone. Never mind saving people money if I can... or at least it leaves you with more dough for toys!

    Hey, guys, I'm troop building and I need one more Generations Shrapnel. They are hard to find right now. I actually got the very last one off of BBTS. If anyone has an extra (or even two extra) to sell or trade, let me know! The Takara version is fine.

    please pm details. that would be a game changer for me as I often shy away from conventions and such if the entry/parking is more than the cost of a couple retail toys :lol 

    plus I'm only really looking to go one day just to check things out and hang out with you guys for a bit.

    2 things: Is there a way to get to TFCon on public transport (ideally the L)?

    How big is Fansproject Assaulter? I know the new Broadside is going to be a Voyager, but I know Broadside should be a big 'un, so I'm just wondering how the 3P one scales.

    You can just take the blue line to the Rosemont station, last stop before O'hare. Short 5 minute walk down River Rd. to the Hyatt Regency. Used to take that way when I lived in the city getting to work.

    Yeah, the Blue line is really easy. That's how I plan on arriving on Friday night -- gonna hop on the blue line right from work. (Same thing I did in 2014, actually.)

    Just checked out 5 local walgreens around my house in Schaumburg and came up with a BIG FAT 0. Not a total wasted hunt since I found a marvel legends dr. strange wave iron fist. Good thing brainstorm is starting to hit because I started to think walgreens canceled the figure.
