    I am so goddamn excited about this. Been waiting since the day tickets went on sale to see what the custom class figure would be and I am not at all disappointed. This dude's gonna look dope in my collection.

    I might actually go to this, never been at a TF convention before, and it's only like 45 minutes away...

    Probably just gonna try to buy some stuff in the dealer room though

    Regular access to the dealer room is already sold out??? Aw man I was really looking forward to Newage Browning, and the other exclusives. They’ll of course be long gone by noon.

    Preparing to travel & my weekend. Are there any movie theaters near the Hilton still open? How are the nearby malls & places to eat? Usually the internet lags behind on changes. Just curious what's still out there.

    At the moment, no. The movie theater over in Harbor East closed for renovations earlier this year and won't reopen until some point in the fall, according to what I've seen. Nearby malls are...eh. There's not a whole lot left in the Gallery or the pavilions in the immediate area. Couple restaurants and some tourist trap-y shops, mostly. As for places to eat, it depends on what you want There's a bunch of restaurants still open in the area but depending on what you're looking for you might have to go a couple blocks over into Federal Hill. Steak and seafood, there are some good places right at the harbor. You want sushi there's Kona grill, but there are also a couple excellent places on Light st and at Charles st. If you just want a quick burger there's a Shake Shack on Pratt st at the harbor.

    hi, i was wondering if anybody knows of any place to discuss the hotel? I'm looking for possible roommates, and haven't found any discussion so far.

    I to maybe looking for a roommate. The person I am sharing with now is not getting a straight answer from their employer on whether they have it off or not.

    Ah that's so cool! Dead End was one of my favorites in Cyberverse. Wish I could go!

    With the regular Baltimore ComiCon being held at the same place that weekend, I'll probably go there first, then wander into TFCon on Saturday to get Venus Terzo's autograph.
    Of course, it's the same weekend as HasCon, so I'll have to make sure to have cell reception for when the exclusives go live.

    I have gotten confirmation that my roommate is not able to go so I have a free bed. Looking for a cohort in crime.

    I'm going to Comicon Friday and Saturday and hitting TFCon Sunday before I fly back home to Atlanta. Hoping Newage Pistolonyx will still be available.

    He is limited to 500 pieces. The first 100 will most likely go to premium pass holders Friday night. The remaining 400 will most likely get sold within the first 30 - 45 minutes the dealer room is open. I have never seen a con exclusive still be available on Sunday morning.

    There should be another 3 or so exclusives announced over the next two weeks leading up to the con. I am hopping there is a Eris repaint among them.

    I'm really hoping to end up with a Pistolonyx but I'm not going to be super devastated if I miss him. I only live a few blocks from the Hilton so my ass is getting there early af Saturday morning to get in line and hopefully snag one. I really want to see what other exclusives we're getting so I can decide whether I want those too. Might end up seeing something I want enough to reconsider buying the Pistolonyx.

    I won't be too torn up if I miss him. The Comicon is more important to me, but if anyone going to TF Con Saturday wants to snag me a Pistolonyx and meet up that evening or Sunday, I'm good for it!
