I just called to make reservations and was told I got the last room for Friday and Saturday night.
So I think it's a wait list now.

I live in Dallas and the hotel is only 8 miles from my front door!!! For those not in the know the hotel is within walking distance of the Kennedy assassination site in case you want to do the tourist thing too, and pretty much all of downtown but not any of the good bars and clubs.

Not sure what the trouble is with booking the hotel.
I just booked it for Friday and Saturday, check-out on Sunday.

Might be open to a roommate though :)

Hmm... My wife and I have a roadtrip planned in the South (Tennessee, Arkansas, Mississippi, Georgia, Lousianna) right around April next year... Dallas WOULD have been doable, but my wife has to be back at work by April 26th :evil:

Anyhow, she's not into TF's, so it wouldn't be much fun for her.

WHY?!!! Why in April?!! Don't they know that that's right in the middle of the Spring 2012 school semester? Any kid who doesn't live in the area won't be able to attend. Are they trying to reduce the attendance quantity?

Are you in PA? Cheaper than Disney? Airfare to Orlando is much cheaper than airfare to Dallas.

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


Do you ever NOT complain?

New figures will be revealed when they're ready to be revealed, and there's a LOT more to Botcon than seeing a few new prototypes.

NYC is probably too expensive. They have to pay to rent the space.

If the money is well in place....I might swing on over. Catch the Amtrak out to Dallas, catch a bus to the rental car...*in sort of a Ferengi-esque voice* map out the storage auction sights for that weekend...and if I get a few good ones...rent a U-Haul to bring home the storage loot... :ic$:

NYC is pricy but they don't have to host it in NYC itself (though they do own a show room there... or so I was told). There are plenty of convention centers and large hotels within an hour or two's radius of the city.

I dunno how much it is to rent the Javits center in NYC, but that building is HUGE and there are other, smaller, locations throughout Manhattan if Hasbro really wanted to be in the city proper.

Hell, there's even Boston and Philly. Both of which are easily gotten to via train from NYC... driving it's about 4 - 5 hours, or something to those means. I'd imagine DC prices would be about the same as NYC, but I could be wrong. DC is 4 or 5 hours from NYC (driving) and there are trains that run there as well. And DC's a great city to be a tourist in! I'm rather biased towards NYC however. Lol.

*sigh* It'd be nice to have one up here. *grumbles about having missed the Rhode Island show a few years ago... but knows she was a poor college student at the time*

ah well. Lol. One can hope for next year. Thought about going this year but, personally, I'd rather go to Yellow Stone and I can't afford to do both.

This is good. Dallas is only 2 days' drive from where I live, It's halfway to Pasadena. Much better than last year. Already made hotel reservations, bring it on! And it's even sooner than last year. Awesome.
