    Also didn't that Hilton JUST open in the last decade or so? Time is a bit fuzzy for me, always. So I could be wrong on that.

    DOES Baltimore have cool collectible stores? Atomic Books and the walls at Paper Moon?

    Atomic Books is great for books and records, but less so for other collectibles. Junq is down the street from them though, and there's never any telling what they've got. For geeky stuff specifically, Collectors Corner and Amazing Spiral are my go-tos. And Shananigans Toy Shop is just a gorgeous place.

    I totally forgot about Amazing Spiral and Collectors Corner. I moved to PA years ago and unfortunately haven't been able to get back to the city often.

    Thanks for the reply!

    Well crap. That means the dealers at ComiCon will most likely be sparse on Transformers since the ones selling figures will be at TFCon.

    NYCC just announced their physical convention has been cancelled this year and will instead be digital-only (similar to SDCC) from October 8-11.

    I will be awfully surprised if both/either Baltimore ComicCon and/or TFCon actually happen in any physical way. This latest surge in national virus cases is likely to last well into the coming months, if not longer...

    After Orlando, Chicago and Toronto all got cancelled, this may be my only chance to go to my first TFcon.

    Fingers crossed for another location or that the pandemic lets up so I can actually go to this.

    EDIT-Meant TFCon.
