    Thanks for the info everyone. Now we wait and see if we get any good exclusives. I'm wondering if MMC's Shadow Ghost Calidus will be for DC (or maybe Signapore)?

    Super excited about my first Con. Hopefully future conventions will be this close to me as well. See you all there!

    if I ever do get an opportunity to meet Jack Angel again, i'm wondering if I should have him sign a different Astrotrain than the one I have, I have the commemorative edition, in which in Shuttle Mode, it is mostly white, different from the colors seen in the cartoon, even though it is the same shape, same mold as the original G1 design.

    I'll most likely take public transit to get around, and maybe hail a taxi or UBER if I want to just get somewhere directly. I realize that while I'm on a short vacation, I really don't want the stress of driving around in a city I don't know like the back of my hand. Also, paying for parking tickets, getting a traffic fine while out on a rental car and disputing it is not in the cards for me. Done that in London, and don't want to shell out the $$$ unless it's for Transformers, or souvenirs.

    even though Frank Welker is still new to attending conventions, Corey Burton still has yet to make his first convention appearance, I hear he is even way more private than Frank Welker was before Frank started attending Cons, that for Corey Burton, it is just completely out of the question, he just flat-out refuses to do Cons.

    Unfortunately, the 1986 movie screening is from last year's schedule. Hopefully, they will have this year's schedule up soon.

    You can own the 86 movie on dvd or blu-ray if you want to see it that bad.... You don't have to be that upset :lol . But, because my fav G1 is Rodimus, seeing the 86 movie with a bunch of TF fans is a bad idea for me. Since most people hate Hot Rod for "killing" Optimus.

    I was looking forward to the group experience like rocky horror picture show and verbally degrading hot rod during the movie.

    So. Yeah. :)

    What is the attendance like at this event?  I know BotCon didn\'t keep official numbers.  Does TFCon?  How does it compare to BotCon?
