By the way...I am in the Fayette-Coweta area. About 30 miles south of Atlanta.
Well of course it's small, it's their first year. (which also means no, I haven't gone before
) And heck, getting Neil Kaplan and Gregg Berger in the first year is pretty impressive. It's not Peter Cullen but it's still known-name actors who played main characters in TF shows. Hopefully, as years pass and word gets out, the con will grow and attract more people and higher profile guests. As-is, I'm going because it's the closest TF convention to me by a long shot, and indeed the only Transformers con in the southeast US, except when Botcon goes to Tampa.
As for the dealers, I figure there probably won't be anybody with super rare stuff to sell, but there's almost guaranteed to be a booth or two selling current mainline Hasbro stuff, which is the biggest thing I'm after right now. That and hopefully a ROTF Bruticus Maximus and/or Prime FE Bulkhead. I honestly don't know what else to expect, and that's a pretty exciting prospect to me.
