"Iconic"? What do they mean iconic? I don't think he ever did that in the movies.


Please correct me if I'm wrong.

He didn't have his blade extended when he said it, though.

Anyone know when the opening starts? Because I probably won't even get there until damn 8 PM. I don't want to miss it.

I'm here in Orlando for the event. We had a special reception and got to ride the ride and shop at the store earlier in the evening. The grand opening commences in the morning and we shall be there.

The Grand Opening is a Red Carpet event that is VIP-only, meaning one would have had to be invited to attend. The event commences at 10am.

I finally got to ride it............I know months later, killed two birds with one stone with going on the final night of Halloween Horror Nights. Loved it, as my wife would look at me from time to time and see my face lit up. Was a bit disappointed there wasn't energon and the glasses. I asked people who worked there where they were and only got the deer and the headlights look. I did get the ridiculously large Op souvenir water bottle. Is it not in Orlando yet?
