It takes a little bit for it to sync up with iTunes. If you need it tomorrow, you can use the direct link to download it instead.

It's missing from the RSS feed as well. I just grabbed the direct download, so it's not a huge deal for me, but I thought I would let you know.

Thanks. It's been fixed. It's now in the RSS feed and should populate in iTunes later today.

You guys mentioned the first "Bee in the City" script reading from 2008. For those who didn't get to see this performance back then (like me), Vangelus put it on YouTube for all to see. so, those who are going to see "Part 2" can brush up on the first part in the videos below. :D







Also, regarding Fracas's name, color me surprised. :-o All this time, I thought for sure that they pronounced his name as "Fraah-kuss" in the cartoon, but watching "The Rebirth - Part 2" again, both times his name is spoken, it's spoken as "Fray-kuss", just as Ryan is saying it. Score one for Mr. Seibertron.com himself. 8)

I updated your post to embed the videos directly. Hope you don't mind.

As for the pronunciation of Fracas' name, it's about time I got one right. It's funny how you say something one way for so long that it just sounds wrong to say it the correct way. I know Takara is pronounced "tah-car-ah" (or however you phonetically spell it) but it will always be "tah-care-ah" (care instead of car) in my head. Names like Fracas with the regular "a" sound are probably why I said Takara wrong all these years.

Was a bit surprised, but I figured one of the higher ups had a hand in this. ;)

Someone mentioned how they hope the FOC Stegosaurus is named "Snarl", rather than the Triceratops being given that name. Don't worry, the Triceratops is named "Slug". ;)

And someone mentioned Dragoyell. Here he is.

I personally think it would suck if BotCon was held in the same location every year...unless it selfishly just so happened to be close to where I live. I'd like to go again, but my experience of it was that it was fun, but not worth the price of a flight, hotel, car rental, meals, all on top of expensive ass toys that I probably shoulda flipped for profit immediately after the show because Thundercracker is the only one that I actually display. Of course I didn't get to experience the Seibertron Super Party because last year was apparently the stripped down acoustic version...so stripped down I couldn't even find it. So maybe my opinion would be different otherwise. But I came away feeling the figures were the biggest draw, and even if the set is great, you can probably acquire them for a lot less than the cost to attend. Either that or start attending the so called 'customizing' class and selling that to recoup the majority of your costs. But back to the point, at least with it moving around, you have a chance of it landing near you.

We didn't make a big deal out of it last year due to the fact that there were 2 official BotCon parties then, one on Friday and one on Saturday.

We did meet up at the bar both nights afterwards.
