    Can you shed some more light on this event? I live in Miami, so it's only about a 4 hour drive or so. I'd most definitely make the trip if it's worth it. Never been to this. What can I expect?

    It's mostly going to be a gathering for fans (like me) as well as an opportunity to get a good deal on a variety of toys.

    I'll be there. I'm in Clearwater so it's just a hop and skip for me. Thanks for posting this.

    Depends on what you like. If you like to fish, I would suggest heading down to the Florida Keys. If you like theme parks, you have Bush Gardens in Tampa. Over in Orlando of course you have the mouse, however, mid July is the summer peak season, so pack patience if you're going then.

    This plus, if you're there long enough, check out TBCC in downtown. Not as TF focused but still a huge event. I might be going to TBCC but I'm pretty sure I'll be able to go to this. And so everyone can identify me, I'll be the guy in the Prime jersey.

    Dang, I can't believe you guys put together your own convention! You've really come a long way in the past year and a half. I'm super proud of you!

    Junior is a great guy that I had the pleasure of knowing personally while I lived in Tampa and I know he will put on an amazing event.

    I didn't know there was a convention in Tampa. I visit the area regularly.
