As nice a location as San Diego is, I think I'll pass this year. I've been to the last three and I just don't want to deal with the hassle or the expenses this time 'round.

Darn, I'd be too busy permanently moving to the US, Dallas TX to be exact. O well, still closer than last year I suppose.

Interesting, but if I go to San Diego it will be for Comic Con, where the TF reveals have been just as good if not better than the ones at BotCon.

hmmm I'm Torn. San Diego is a beautiful City, but not only am I moving to the East Coast next month my son is due to be born only 3 weeks prior. I think I'll just pass and go to Charticon in August.

California?

Guess who isn't going this year (as usual, sadly). :-(

Just have to remember Charticon whenever it comes up. What are the dates for that again?

Looks like unless Anime Expo is good this year, or I move, I will be going to Botcon! It's just a 3-4 hour drive from where I live! :DANCE:

I know that Fun Pub is based in TX, but damn, show the east coast some love!!

No Botcon for me this year.

I swear that is the CDT red alert mold in the left of the picture...

As for location... Oh well, I'm still in Asia. >:oP

Yeah, I tried to take a look at the (blurry) artwork in the back.

My eyesight is crap already, trying to look at it just gave me a massive headache.

So, is Botcon wanting people not to come? This is, yet again, a deal breaker for me. I'm starting to wonder if Hasbro knows that there are other states aside from California. Why not hold it on the east coast? I hear Atlanta is a pretty darn big city with a very capable airport.

I'm not booking a four hour flight to California to buy toys that I could have mailed to me instead. Sorry Hasbro, not getting my money at Botcon this year.

I always wondered why no one has done a Machine Wars Soundwave out of that mold. COuld this be th year?

As for BotCon...

F*#k you FunPub. Screwing everyone east of the ROckies as usual. I miss the Chicago shows. I won't be going. DOn't they watch the news about the damned economy? You really want to hold it in one of the most expensive cities in the US? I seriously want to punch someone in the face...

Glad to at least know the date and location.

heh ... can't go because it's more than a four hour plane flight?

Think of all the international fans who can't make it. >:oP

Charticon is in Charlotte North Carolina from August 9-11. I think it's there first year but it looks like a number of siebertronians are going. Jon 3.0 is even a guest.

It's not the flight so much as the distance. Work week for me tipicaly is 6 days a week, 8 hour days with three different rotating shifts. Now, I know that no two people's circumstances are the same, but, more often than not, I just can't get time off for things that are out of driving distance xD.

Having defended my reasons for being unable to book a four hour flight, I think it's safe to say that there are others who are kinda miffed about the convention and it's love of California besides myself xD.

International fans...well...you guys just get the short end of the Hasbro stick all the time D=. Except for having access to awesome figures, of course...like G1 Overlord xD
