Given how TM Megs suffers from GPS, I'm sure many people would jump at a reissue.

@  Pennpenn : (01 May 2016 - 12:32 AM)

Out of all the hypothetical Beast Wars things, the one I'd like is a leader class Transmetal Megatron

@  Verno : (30 April 2016 - 11:18 PM)

They'd make a superb duo. If TT drew the line under BW MPs after those two, I'd be perfectly content.

@  Smokey : (30 April 2016 - 11:15 PM)

I personally hope we get an MP BW Megs, especially if he has a rubber ducky he can hold, yeeess.

@  Verno : (30 April 2016 - 11:13 PM)

Bring on October and MP Primal so the anniversary celebrations can begin.

@  Smokey : (30 April 2016 - 11:06 PM)

oh hey lok its tecs birthday

@  Smokey : (30 April 2016 - 11:03 PM)

It certainly has, man. If it wasn't for BW I probably wouldn't be here.

@  Verno : (30 April 2016 - 10:15 PM)

Yeah, I threw a link in the Beast Wars Birthday thread. I'm keen to hear as many thoughts on it as possible. The last month has proven just how dear to the hearts of fans BW is.

@  Smokey : (30 April 2016 - 10:04 PM)

I looked at it a few days ago, actually, I saw you post it somewhere here on the forums.

@  Verno : (30 April 2016 - 09:43 PM)

No, they're certainly after their own ends. Cheers for taking a look at it, Smokey. I appreciate it.

@  Smokey : (30 April 2016 - 09:36 PM)

Well, at least you twisted things around so the Tripredacus council aren't minions of Unicron.

@  Verno : (30 April 2016 - 09:30 PM)

With Primus and Unicron, it was my aim for it to double as a celebration of the 30th anniversary of TF:TM.

@  Smokey : (30 April 2016 - 09:27 PM)

It's... Better than Dawn of the Predacus, at least. I could do without the whole Primus v. Unicron thing, that's been done to death.

http://www.botcon.co...c11schedule.cfm

I think I actually envy the out-of-towners staying in hotels. On Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday, it looks like I'll have to drive home and come back to get to everything (20-30 minutes each way, given traffic).

I think I understand. Although I don't envy them enough to pay all that extra hotel money (when I do have the option of going to my own home each night), there's something to be said for having a place to crash on-site mid-day. It's harder to just leave and come back if you have to go all the way home to do so.

Still, I can't complain. I'm getting by a lot cheaper than most folks.

I'm confused by all the different package pick up listings. If that for the boxsets, or what? I'm attending the Wednesday customizing class, does that mean the box sets will be up for those attending?

They don't do it every year. Although I do note sadly that they seem to pick the Pasadena BotCons not to do it at, I can certainly understand that it's a struggle to keep fresh after doing it so often.

No space in the schedule for MSTF this year on the days the panel room is reserved for, which was the situation last year. There's a buttload of stuff going on, and, well, priorities.

Honestly, I'd almost rather it WAS due to you guys needing a break (more the point of my comment I think you're referencing re: "freshness"), especially since "too much going on" was the excuse made the last time it was in Pasadena. However legitimate that excuse is. We're kinda getting left out.

There was? I just missed it? (I wasn't at BotCon 2010 at all, so it's not about my being confused about which convention) If so, then I simply extend my apologies. I don't know how that happened, though....

(to be clear, I wasn't making any accusations that anyone was purposely avoiding Pasadena. Just pointing out what I thought was an unfortunate coincidence.)

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.
