Oh, that Landshark is gorgeous! Makes a pretty nice Classics Gnaw/Sharkticon, if you ask me. Once more, fantastic work, GRR!
I wish I had the cash for that Quake and Needlenose. But alas, financial issues. Really need more Classics Decepticons on my shelves, they're starting to get overrun by Autobots.
Hopefully I'll get the chance to speak with all the voice actors and artists.
Good God, August can't get here soon enough!

My Prowl costume is almost done: http://www.projectprowl.com/
Is anyone else making a Transformers costume for Charticon?

Well, you know the saying, "Shit happens". I had hoped to do some Transformer shopping up there that I would otherwise have to do online (absolutely hate online shopping with a passion), but like I said above, finances and family's education won't allow it. The convention days coincides with her heading back up to UNCP, and with her up there, there would be no one to take care of our pets at home.
Like I said, if there's going to be another Charticon next year, there's no doubt I'd head up there then.

It would be the first Transformers convention I would actually be able to afford to go to, if they decide to host it again next year.
