Ok now this is funny. I ordered a used copy of HoS GN and the one I got was a library copy once. It's marked Union County on it. Thats my home county. :D It never was in my library though. Mine is named after the man who built it not the town or county but still kinda funny.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (09 February 2016 - 09:44 PM)

Is it sad I read "KF7 Soviet" as "KFC7 Soviet"?

@  TheMightyMol... : (09 February 2016 - 03:38 PM)

Neat.

@  Dracula : (09 February 2016 - 03:35 PM)

A what? Oh, you must mean a KF7 Soviet. Common mistake.

@  TheMightyMol... : (09 February 2016 - 03:22 PM)

Can I just get an AK-47 instead?

@  Telly : (09 February 2016 - 02:35 PM)

this is form 47-a. you want form 47-A. start again

@  MEDdMI : (09 February 2016 - 02:07 PM)

Now you didn't fill the form in black or blue ink. Do it again.

@  Rycochet : (09 February 2016 - 02:04 PM)

You made a typo on the first page of the forms, you're going to have to go back and fill the whole form out again, from first to final.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (09 February 2016 - 01:31 PM)

"bats"

@  Dracula : (09 February 2016 - 01:09 PM)

Nice and soft, you say? This isn't even my final form!!!!

@  Telly : (09 February 2016 - 12:47 PM)

@  Dracula : (09 February 2016 - 08:52 AM)

It's course and rough...wait that doesn't work

@  NotVeryKnightly : (09 February 2016 - 08:43 AM)

@  BillBarclay : (08 February 2016 - 04:58 PM)

btw one of the Transformers Victory intro's(not the original music used) on YouTube uses one of the pieces of music used on the US version of Transformers Armada

@  Rycochet : (08 February 2016 - 03:55 PM)

You should read it again, it gets better with age!

@  Whirl Maximus : (08 February 2016 - 03:46 PM)

I am fully aware of that story and mentioning it carries the penalty of fifty towel snaps.

@  Rycochet : (08 February 2016 - 03:31 PM)

Shh, it's a trap!

@  TheMightyMol... : (08 February 2016 - 02:48 PM)

See, you said "awesome" and "The Beast" in the same sentence, and I think you broke my mind with the contradiction.

@  Rycochet : (08 February 2016 - 02:42 PM)

No-one tell Whirl about the awesome dinobot combiner, The Beast.

@  Plokatron : (08 February 2016 - 02:37 PM)

@Dracula Uh oh were in trouble.

@  Rycochet : (08 February 2016 - 02:36 PM)

If you think that's cool, wait until you see what other stuff we're hiding from you.

@  Whirl Maximus : (08 February 2016 - 02:33 PM)

Transformers Victory's intro is awesome. And not one of you told me.... WHY?!!!

@  Rycochet : (08 February 2016 - 10:43 AM)

It doesn't count those using it on other pages.

@  Rycochet : (08 February 2016 - 10:43 AM)

If it's the one by IPB Shoutbox, it means the number of people who are viewing the Shoutbox page.

@  tffan01 : (08 February 2016 - 10:34 AM)

Where's the red numbers?

@  Lush City : (08 February 2016 - 09:23 AM)

Ok total newb to the shoutbox, but what do the red numbers in the corner mean?

@  Whirl Maximus : (08 February 2016 - 09:09 AM)

Thought it would lead to hi jinks and a lark like that movie Idiocracy instead it turned into something disturbing and traumatic like that movie Small Soldiers.

@  Dracula : (08 February 2016 - 08:55 AM)

You used MUNITION CHIPS in TOYS??

@  tffan01 : (08 February 2016 - 08:02 AM)

@  Robowang : (08 February 2016 - 07:58 AM)

SEX

@  Whirl Maximus : (08 February 2016 - 07:48 AM)

I got bruticus limbs at FP last monday and Onslaught on Friday. Huge mistake, I inserted an X1000 microprocessor in each one and a extra for Bruticus, and they mopped the floor with the rest of my CW collection.

@  BillBarclay : (08 February 2016 - 06:18 AM)

i already got those(Scattershot & Onslaught) from Smyths Toys here in the UK, Asda's supposed to have the RID Warrior Class figures in(Megatronus, Blue Optimus Prime ect)

@  Plokatron : (08 February 2016 - 02:07 AM)

Yeah glad I ain't a bug or a bowwow. Hahaha

@  Lisbon Virgo : (07 February 2016 - 02:38 PM)

Well, the idea of dying during sex sounds appealing until you realize it involves crushed pelvises...

@  Paladin : (07 February 2016 - 08:21 AM)

TripleDent Gum, will make you smile...

@  Pennpenn : (06 February 2016 - 10:34 PM)

I do love how they did the "Death! ...by snu-snu!" scene, with Fry and Brannigan's expressions shifting between horrified and delighted.

@  Lisbon Virgo : (06 February 2016 - 08:46 PM)

Yes, please?

@  MEDdMI : (06 February 2016 - 07:48 PM)

Death by snu-snu

@  siccoyote : (06 February 2016 - 07:36 PM)

Everyone's gotta die from something

@  Plokatron : (06 February 2016 - 06:51 PM)

My dad survived it twice and we both have a strong hate towards it for taking someone from us. IMy sympathies to your family.

@  Plokatron : (06 February 2016 - 05:14 PM)

@Smokey Sorry to here that.

@  Smokey : (06 February 2016 - 02:42 PM)

I'd laugh more at cancer jokes if cancer hadn't killed my aunt six years ago.

BotCon.com has been updated with an MP3 of the radio commercial advertising BotCon. I assume this commercial was played in the Kentucky area

Look like Fun Productions took the suggestion of outside advertising to heart

I haven't listened to it yet, but... someone on another board said the ad promises that the first 100 kids to arrive each day get a free toy? True?

Well, naturally it's nothing like that bad. There are always kids at Botcon.

Still, I really hope that FP has stated somewhere in writing how they're defining "kid" for the purposes of that promotion....

Not sure if xZaox was being sarcastic, but... yeah, there was always a noticeable amount of children at prior Botcons, usually buying loose toys and rummaging through parts bins and trying awkwardly to insert themselves into conversations that older fans were having.

Some people were concerned that there seemed to be fewer of them at '05, but since attendance at '05 was down all over they might have just been a proportionately smaller segment. Hopefully this will bring them back, it's their hobby too.

I remember in 2004, I met Mr. Optimus Prime, and his young son. Very young.

I was working in the Art Room. By working I mean,"sitting at a table with 1DB, Trixter, Jake, and Jake's wife, having fun conversation and doing very little in the way of work", and Mr. Op comes in with son in tow. I think he was five.

Mr. Op and I exchange pleasantries, then Op Jr. starts describing the plot of Transformers: The Movie to me as if it's the most awesome new thing ever! It was probably the cutest thing anyone will ever see at a Botcon.

At BC99 (my first), I had just snagged a Victory Saber giftset and was carrying it through the dealer room when a kid maybe 9 years old saw me. He demanded that I allow his father to buy it off of me so he could have it, then called his dad over and ordered him to pay me $500 for it. Meanwhile I hadn't even had time to say whether I wanted to re-sell the thing literally 20 minutes after just getting it myself. The father looked at me sheepishly and asked if I'd be willing to go through with the sale, since, quote, "the kid sure is a Saber fan." And he obviously was, since while Daddy was saying that, Junior was walking around me in fast circles while singing the Victory themesong, in Japanese even. And he was a 9-year-old whiteboy.

Your experience was cuter than mine.

Jesus, what a brat. How much had you paid for it? I'd have doubled the price. No reason to go easy on a little jerk like that, and if dad coughs up double the price, then that's the price he pays (lawl, double entendre) for being a crappy dad who lets his son boss him around.

Based on the commercial, it would appear that Master Collector hasn't a clue about Transformers at all.

"Autobots, Decepticon, Beast Wars"? Beast Wars wasn't a faction that last time I checked.

While that's true, I wouldn't jump to "Master Collector hasn't a clue about Transformers" over that.

Not that proper examples can't be found, but really. That's just looking for something to complain about....
