I'm not going this year, so it doesn't affect me directly. But I'm still kinda bummed by this.
I'll be honest, the MST3K is a goofy fan-thing, yes, but its also been one of the most fun events at any of the Botcons I've been to. It's one of the more grassroots, fan based, fan-run feeling convention bits, yet still something non hardcore fans can really enjoy. It was EASILY the most fun panel for my wife when she came. She's not a big TF fan, but she really laughed and enjoyed the MST as much as I did.
Frankly MST3K IS a Botcon priority to me. It's #2 right behind the Hasbro preview panels for "must attend"
Even though I won't be there either way, I'm really very sorry to hear about it taking a backseat.
ZacWilliam, feels a little like it's being treated like an unwanted red-headed stepchild by the new, more "professional/hollywood" Con when it was my "favorite son" of the smaller older geeky Botcon's past
