Just occurred to me that this is going to mess up our plans for the annual Seibertron.com night. Hm.

I bet they were looking at how successful the Friday night parties were getting and decided that there was opportunity they were not capitalizing on.

Or maybe they're trying to prevent the crazy drunkeness that happens on those nights? Or maybe they've got something bigger than a quick DOTM preview (just a guess based off 2009) planned for us on Saturday night. Hm.

Im still not sure if I wanna go for the "Animated" theme. But if I do every night will be drinking night. From what I was told this area is out in the open. Not like last year where we were trapped in Disney World and forced to party by their curfews and early bar closing times. Wish they would put Botcon in Miami so I could take all of ya to the shake junt and we can party with the strippers till 5 AM !!! ;)

I just realised the HoF was a seperate event now and cost $45 which is kind of steep may have to skip out on that.Don't know if it will be worth going too.What everyone elses thoughts thats going this year?

Start your engines! Botcon 2011 Registration is now online! Be prepared to wait as their site is running a bit on the slow side, but registration is officially active and online. Click here to be taken to their registration site!

From what I hear and see, registration is still bungled up a bit.

Unfortunately, I cannot make it this year.... :sad: I was hoping to meet some of the faces behind the usernames. I hope everyone who can go DOES, and has an awesome time! I can tell you, my absolute best friend I met waiting in the long (and totally hysterical) lines! Don't let the box set keep you from going if you can.

OK, I got in.


I had to do the Iacon package this year though ... but it will be my first botcon set!

Just checked my bank account...ouch. For some reason I thought the Mini-con package was available to everyone, as a simple 'entry-but-no-figures-or-big-benefits' package. Seems that's terribly wrong! And 180USD is the minimum :/

I do have the money...But I'd rather buy the DOTM set, and work on my generations, and G1 sets.

Im gonna sleep on it.

I wanna hit that button but then I just keep thinking ANIMATED...IS IT WORTH $1500 ???

Pros:

1. I own the original Stunticons so owning a homage set would be really cool.

2. A chance to cop some of the classics figures I missed from the 2006-2007 line.

3. A chance to hang with the Seibertron.com homies.

Cons :

1. ANIMATED !!!

The money is there but the interest is not. I own 13 animated figures. I bought most of them because they are homages to favorite G1 characters, Nothing more. I have owned all 3 seasons of Animated that I got hold of a year ago and have yet to watch. Maybe Im not giving Animated a fair chance. But I just cant seem to get a taste for it. (or Transformers Prime) Will somebody please give me a shining reason to make the trip ???

Bah, I really want to be there for the screening.

If any of you want to fill in the gaps in your animated collection, I've just listed every Hasbro Deluxe, Voyager and Leader for sale.

Dude, first question: Have you ever been? The answer is almost certainly no. The reason for saying this is that NO ONE I have ever talked to that has been to Botcon, has not wanted to go back. NO ONE. There is a reason for that. If you have been, and are not eager to go back, then you did not get the most out of the trip.

Second question: You got the money? You do? Then why not? You got another, bigger, better Transformers convention to go to with better exclusives? No ofcourse you don't. Shining reason: IT'S BOTCON YOU MONKEY! :D

Got my Iacon packages registered! If anyone that is going wants to pick up 2 of everything for me, I'd gladly pay you handsomely for them!

Out of curiosity, would you guys come up here to the Pacific Northwest if the con was held here in Seattle? We have a great convention center here for botcon size conventions, plenty of hotels, and those fish throwing fellows at Pike Place market! Fun for the whole family!

I spent more time in rooms buying figures. I also quit drinking a few years ago. Plus, I used to live in Orlando, so we went to the clubs. The friends I made and the people I met more than compensated for the G2 box set, which ofcourse I bought, but it was more the icing on the cake. I mean dude G2? You went for that but not Animated? Really? My point is: How much did the box set really sell you on the experience last year? Is 5 toys really a deal breaker? And for the last time: REALLY?

Happily registered. :)

Tomorrow I'll bag the plane tickets I've been waiting on, then it's time to finalize room accomodations with fellow fans. . . .

Think another thread might be necessary for that?
