    I know, right?

    Sad indeed.

    And this is BEFORE any seat sales happen.

    Finally...a con that is close to me. Last one I went was botcon in RI. Been waiting for one to come back this side. Shame on botcon for waiting for so long and doing nothing. Cheaper for me to fly here than Toronto.

    US $402 v $458 CAN.

    Hmm. Room rates may be the deciding factor…
    Though my Meadowvale rate is pretty good and that is with going solo.

    Possibly between TFCon Toronto & TFCon Chicago. Not the same as Botcon.

    I am really considering passing on Botcon this year and go to TFCon b/c am am looking at $550 in airfare or 10 hour drive with friends (that fart a lot) don't have to have like $700 for special toys at one time. But one question is this a one time only b/c of 30th anniversary will there be different exclusive between Canada and Chicago

    In other years, I would've said I wish was going. Since I was able to stay at a hotel in San Diego for BotCon this year, there's a possibility I might go. Especially if someone I know is also going

    Being the 30th anniversary for tf's, i gotta do botcon. But knowing there will be a US TFCON out there, this may be may last Botcon as well. And its its not back to back with SDCC so i can probably swing both for 2015!!

    That is so sad, but true. I was most likely going to have to miss TFCon Original this year. I might actually be able to swing this one... And save on travel costs to boot.

    It's only a 5 hour drive for me. If they have a kick ass exclusive available I'll definitely go.

    Hopefully something bigger and badder than a Mini Warrior repaint.
