    We won't be accepting nominations for Erector next year, as per Hasbro's request for less known characters who have a lasting impact on the brand.

    On that logic, as a great representative of all that is good and fun about Robots in Disguise, Sky Byte for 2012! And Scourge for Classics 4.0 as a RTS Laser Prime redeco!

    I'm pretty sure we'll never completely know.

    HUGE agreement that FunPub needs to cut out the cutesy coyness next time.

    Oh, and 2009's Party at Paramount was $50, not $10.

    Agreed. The Paramount party is right up there as far as "best botcon experience" for me. I'm starting to think more and more it was Bay's apperance fee. That'll get the fandom riled up. :lol

    Paramount party was super rad.

    Sure the theater this year couldn't have been cheap but neither could have the fleet of buses that took us to to Paramount and Paramount had food, multiple bar tenders, a crazy fancy portable restroom, dude diving people around on a studio tour, the theater there, Stan Bush on stage, Weird Al doing autographs, Tyrese Gibson and so on and so on.

    Now I was not as passionate in my opinion as others about this years HoF but for only $5 less it really didn't seen to measure up.

    Just listened and the point Aaron brought up about 'damaging' the G1 KO's and selling them for stupid prices. I talked to some dealers who told me that exact thing had happened and these dealers who were dealing with genuine G1's were going around passing the word to not buy from those guys.

    I know this thread is oldish already but I just got around to listening.

    I'm surprised not more people have spoken about or informed the WTF crew about how deep and substantial Jagex can get with their upcoming MMO. Based on my somewhat extensive experience with Runescape, I am fully hopeful of this upcoming game.

    Also is there a recording or anything of the hall of fame stuff? I wanna see the Erector bit!
