    Next meetup: February 25th, 2017. It's a Saturday night 7pm-9pmLocation: Fuddruckers on Pan American Freeway, then at Lobo Anime and Comics at 4:30 or so for a Skylynx/Trypticon race.

    Tentative schedule for the next few meetups:
    April 2017
    June 2017
    October 2017

    ....keep checking here in case things change.

    What do we do at the meetups? Well, basically we talk about and show each other our toys. We are a bunch of transformer geeks that like to just hang out and talk TFs. All the news and gossip, good and bad, and all the new figures/releases. When Botcon rolls around we talk about that too. If the location allows it, we might also air episodes or movies as well.

    What's the difference between a regular Meetup and a Micro Meetup? Micro meetups are a bit smaller, and usually have less space, so not as many toys are brought for trading. We tend to just meet at a restaurant and hang out at a Micro Meetup

    What do I need to bring to the meetup? It only costs $24.99 per person payable in cash.......HA! just kidding. The important thing is to bring yourself and be ready to introduce yourself and talk about transformers. You are always welcome to bring any TFs that you want to show off or discuss. Also, if you have some TFs and parts you'd like to get rid of, you can bring those too as we often trade/buy/sell stuff too. Anyone is welcome to rummage through them and buy/trade as they like.

    What about kids and family, can they come? Definitely! Family and friends are always welcome, just make sure you keep an eye on kids/friends who might pick up other TFW members toys. We don't want any hard feelings when something bad happens to a toy that means a lot to someone, so just remember to be respectful of other peoples items.

    If you have any specific questions, feel free to send me a Private Message via TFW (just click on my name, then "Send Private Message")

    Date and Location are set for the first meetup of 2013!!!

    If anyone wants to bring food, please make a list here. The location is my classroom, so I'll have a projector setup in case we want to watch any cartoons or movies. Bring toys to trade/sell and come hang out and have fun.

    Please RSVP via PM or post in here to let me know you're coming, and if anyone is coming with you.

    It should be fun!

    If anyone wants to trade/buy anything from my sales list, let me know ASAP. I'm making a list for BBTS and won't have much from my thread left afterwards. Also selling a bunch of movie toys, so if you are looking for anything ask me. I probably have it cuz I bought so many movie toys.

    Count me in for a bit. Is room 201 easy to find? Most schools need maps for a reason.

    Alright everyone, here's the aerial map of my school. it's between Eubank and Juan Tabo, on Indian School. Please park where the red circle is, the North West parking lot. The red line is the entrance to my classroom, it's also facing the street, but kinda hidden by a wall, so you can't really see it as you drive by. The main entrance to the school will be closed, so don't go that way. Just look for the second yellow door, I'll leave it open for awhile, or at least unlocked if it's cold/windy.

    10600 Indian School RD, between Eubank and Juan Tabo, room 201. Enter from the NORTH side of the building, the back door will be open.

    Squall is bringing some cups, I'll stop for some Mountain Dew and Dr Pepper, if someone else wants to bring a few liters of soda as well, that'd be great. and maybe some chips? not sure what other snacks people will want. We can decide on pizza or other food once everyone's there.

    also, HOLY SHIT NEW TOYS!!! we can put those up on my projector tomorrow as well, and see how big METROPLEX will really be!

    Glad to see everyone who came out yesterday!

    So everyone can start planning, our next meetup will be May 10th! That's a Friday night, and this'll be a micro meetup. We'll meet at a restaurant or something. Location and time TBD. If anyone has input on location or feedback on prior meetups, please PM me or post it HERE!


    Hope to see all of you there!
