    It was fun visiting your shop yesterday Hiro, and the minibots will find a good hom, when I get home tonight.

    I also found, in the MN sightings thread about the next Frankie Con, it is Nov 21 10am-4pm.

    Hey guys, cool news.

    Jeremy has asked me to help a bit with the upcoming Frankie Con on November 21st. Bring in some comic creators if I could.

    I'm happy to announce that both Phil Juliano and Brock Beauchamp have agreed to do the show. Please make sure to bring some extra cash and pick up some of their books or pay for a sketch. They're great guys and I'd love for them to have a successful day so they'll spread positive word about Frankie Con. Also because they're super talented and their work is awesome.

    So, are we having a meet this weekend? If so, is it going to be at the same Frankie's? I ask because I'm not seeing much being posted here from anyone about who's attending or not as we have in the past.

    Yes, same Frankie's as last time. Most of the info seems to be posted over in the MN sightings thread. Not sure why it's not getting updated over here too.

    Was there going to be a Jan meet-up? I thought I had seen something in the sightings thread but wanted to double check.

    Sounds great to me. Barring any bad weather, I should have no problem making it up on the 30th. Anyone looking for anything in particular for me to bring up? I just picked up a large collection of BW, BM, A-E-C, and Universe-1.0 toys.

    It looks like I can finally make it. It might not be till 3, however, unless I can ditch work early.
    And, yes, I'll have stuff to sell.

    Likely won't be at the meet-up. My wife and I recently had a baby and we have family who want to meet him.

    Looks like I'll be able to leave work at 1, so I should be there around 2. Don't know what I'm bringing to sell, yet. I should have time Thursday to get it together.

    Congrats Jason. Sorry we won't be seeing ya but it's great to hear about the new kid.

    As for the meet-up, it's been requested that I bring BW and Armada stuff with me this time. Any other series you guys would like to see me bring up?

    Well, I'm sick. Unless a miracle happens, I'll be a no show.
