Yes! The last & only time it was here in the DFW area, I was far away in grad school, so I couldn't attend.

If I don't need hotel tickets, does that mean I can only buy general admission tickets for only Saturday & Sunday?

No no friend, you will be able to purchase a Primus package and experience everything Botcon has to offer. The hotel is only set up first for the convenience of the ou-of-towners.

Is this where I'm supposed to pour on the butt-hurt and cry about my "credit" because my BotCon post was one minute earlier? :lol: "Credit" is pretty valuable stuff, after all! :roll:

So are the details of the set very soon to follow? Last year that info came just over 4 months before the event. We're only like a week or two away from that same time frame with it being so early this year...

my guesses below,i state nothing as fact,it's just my opinion.

I don't like the date for april 26 to 29,2012. because hasbro's NYC toyfair is in the 3rd week of february every year.
Having botcon 2012 in april guarantees that we won't see that many newer proto types different from hasbro's nyc february toy fair.

My guess is SDCC 2012 in july & then SDCC in october will reveal more newer transformers proto types than botcon 2012

Just a heads up, Dairycon will still be held on April 27th and 28th, being that, ya know, we announced it quite a while ago. To keep details hidden for so long would just be rude. ;)
