    Thank you for this! How is the parking situation and is it far from the dealer room? Wondering how the walk will be if I need to store stuff in the car.

    I think parking will probably be bad at the Marriott, but there are countless businesses surrounding the hotel that should be empty on a Saturday. If all else fails there is also the economy airport parking which is just a couple block away.

    I was reacting to the fact that Hasbro would go out of their way to prevent a fan-run convention from screening a 35 year-old movie.

    That's total Hasbro BS for shutting down the 86 movie. Hasbro gives zero F's for that movie. At Hascon they played transformer films on loop but left out the 86 movie from rotation.

    Also another guest announcement

    Went to the “five faces of darkness” panel Friday night, the g1 writers present (flint dille, Don glut, Douglas Booth and buzz Dixon were so generous with their time spent over 2 1/2 hours just talking transformers with the fans in the room! Awesome experience!

    It's been a blast so far with the Podcasters Panel, The 5 Faces Panel and I got some of the exclusives already. I'll be going live from my YouTube channel later today to show some of the goodies.

    Here in line for early access and man there are like 200-250 people already waiting in line for the regular line. Surprised that there aren’t more people in early admin only like 30 of us here. All I wanna do is get my exclusives and hit that 3rd party panel sucks that it’s at 4pm though.

    Is that the white wristband line?

    I only bought a deluxe Saturday pass so I have the green wristband and have to wait in the regular line. I'm like in the 50-60 part of the line and got here at 7:45am

    I have the green wristband and they sent me to the white wrist band line. I am questioning why there are only 3 of us with green wristbands though.

    Yeah I lined up on that side initially then I asked one of the people and they said green wristbands are against the wall near the registration side and the "premium" side was for white wristbands

    Yeah deluxe Saturday gets in at 9am. I wonder how they'll separate out the 11am people. Makes me wonder if the extra money for the early pass was worth it. I'll support the cause though :D
