Had a good time at the convention! My wife enjoyed it too, and she's not a collector or anything. She actually bought more stuff than I did! I got a Classics Constructicon Devastator, NIB, for $75.

There was lots of Transformers stuff in the dealer room; TF, GI Joe, and Star Wars seemed to be the most common toys there, but there was a little of everything from the 80s.

There was some good TF stuff there. I saw a complete sealed SDCC 2013 GI Joe Crossover set and lots of Botcon exclusives, as well as plenty of G1 stuff.

There was a nice BB-deco'd Camaro in the parking lot, along with a Scooby-Doo Mystery Machine, KITT, and some other 80s TV cars.

We will definitely be back next year.

I had to miss out this year due to a crazy work schedule. Sorry I missed you, I haven't seen you since BotCon 2010!
