Tusks doesn't exist in aligned though. Or maybe he does, but in this continuity he needs someone else to work the controls, or maybe by "piano player" the narration implies that Maccadam literally IS the piano. The universe may never know.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (31 May 2016 - 09:55 PM)

Where in Aligned?

@  Plokatron : (31 May 2016 - 09:53 PM)

@Locoman Hmm that can't be right. The piano plays it's self. Thats Tusks not Maccadam. But yeah in Aligned he is Alchemist Prime from what I've read. Still not the G1 universes though so I'm going with the Blue Bar Keep bot as him in Primax Clusters unless I'm pointed out wrong. Edit: Oh AVP said that not just the Aligned continuity. Well I'll just go with the blue bot like I said but say thats how he looks in Primax clusters. Unless proven wrong of course.

@  Locoman : (31 May 2016 - 09:42 PM)

But he's described as having a beard, and Retribution takes place in the aligned continuity where things are weird, and AVP has basically established that he's Alchemist Prime, so...

@  Locoman : (31 May 2016 - 09:42 PM)

no, he's the piano player.

@  Plokatron : (31 May 2016 - 09:40 PM)

@Locoman Was that him then? Cause the wiki only shows the bar keep in Maccadam's entry.

@  Locoman : (31 May 2016 - 09:30 PM)

Maccadam shows up in Retribution! He talks and everything.

@  Plokatron : (31 May 2016 - 09:18 PM)

Question anyone know if the bar keep http://tfwiki.net/me...ams_destiny.jpg here is Maccadam? Or is he just the face of the joint and we still haven't seen Maccadam?

@  Foffy the Sheep : (31 May 2016 - 04:46 PM)

The Seacons should just replace Nautilator with a Lobclaw drone. It'd save 'em a lot of heartache.

Xenu is just Tom Cruise in a wig, though.

@  wonko the sane? : (30 May 2016 - 07:00 PM)

I'm pretty sure cruze just offers the planets to xenu, he doesn't actaull eat them himself.

@  Foffy the Sheep : (30 May 2016 - 06:57 PM)

And they both eat planets.

@  wonko the sane? : (30 May 2016 - 06:56 PM)

well, it was one or the other. I might have been confused because they both have huge heads.

@  Foffy the Sheep : (30 May 2016 - 06:35 PM)

I've never heard that before. Are you sure you're not thinking of Tom Cruise?

I thought galactus was supposed to appear differently depending on which species is looking at him?

@  Foffy the Sheep : (30 May 2016 - 04:55 PM)

Galactus isn't goofy-looking. His hat is the grandest of all hats!

@  PlutoniumBoss : (30 May 2016 - 12:58 PM)

And we run into something like the Galactus Fashion Conundrum. Are YOU going to be the one to go up to his face and tell him he's goofy-looking?

@  Foffy the Sheep : (30 May 2016 - 12:32 PM)

Maybe Miles's villains think you're lame!

@  unluckiness : (30 May 2016 - 11:07 AM)

I don't mind Miles but his villains are kinda lame.

@  Bass X0 : (30 May 2016 - 09:29 AM)

I just thankful they didn't have a black Peter Parker.

@  tffan01 : (30 May 2016 - 09:09 AM)

I would have preferred Peter Parker. But If they really wanted to make a non-Peter Parker lead, they could have made Spider-Man 2099, at least it has a gimmick (futurism). While Miles, imo isn't that different from Peter Parker.

@  Locoman : (30 May 2016 - 08:52 AM)

That would be cool. Ultimate Universe kind of went off the rails toward the end, but I always liked Miles.

Heh, I'd be of two minds if it were Pasadena again. The part of me that wants a vacation versus the part that would save hundreds on plane tickets and a hotel.

I'd love it to be in Florida around August. Dream vacation for me. Star Wars Celebration ... AND Botcon. I could die a happy jawa. But that dream aside. Boston would be a nifty local. (And for the record that's about a 8 hour bus ride for me, so no it ain't next door)

The Pacific Northwest has never gotten any love, so how about it? Great booze and food, lots of things to do, friendly cities? Seattle would probably get more walk-ins then Portland, though Portland is a vey geek-friendly city. I could be wrong though, anyone know the PAX Prime attendance figures?

PAX has grown to about about 70,000+ as of this year. I can testify to it.

Going by past trends, Botcon'll be on the east coast this year.

The convention being in Pasadena also makes it much cheaper and easier to bring in the voice actors, which is apparently a draw.

Eh, voice actors aren't a draw for me. I mean they're cool but they in no way determine my wanting to go one way or another. The draw is Botcon itself, and would remain without s single VA.

Location however completely does, and west coast is terrible for that. It's simply too far.


-ZacWilliam, that's why it's best to move it around, so folks all over get a decent shot at going.

I wonder how many fans would end up not going, simply because they could neither spell nor pronounce Pachyceph and were therefore incapable of making travel arrangements.

Because there always is.

From what I understand, it's also supposed to be a very reasonable place to have a conference, cost-wise. The business model of the whole town is basically "get people here so they can lose their money to us by gambling," so everything else is generally very affordable.

I think the problem with Botcon there though would be that it's not exactly the most family-friendly place in the world. Also, the chances of getting a lot of walk-ins are going to be pretty low when there's not very many kids around, and for any adults there's a lot of other entertainment right nearby.

It'd be a great choice for fans, but probably less so for FunPub or Hasbro, IMO.

Going just by where traffic to this site comes from as a sampling.. most of our users seem to be in the northeast and east and southeast... with a chunk from Texas and a big chunk from California.

Much like it was 5-10 years ago.

Seems like Lexington, Cincinnati and Louisville are the most 'central' locations based on the sampling of Transformers fans from this site. I couldn't say what it might be overall but I don't see any reason why it would be all that different.

Centrality notwithstanding, I think we discovered that the Cincinnati airport was among the most expensive in the nation when we were discussing it as a BotCon option a few years ago.

That's why I say Louisville.. not just because I live here but because it's, has its own large airport, is cheap.. has more stuff to do than Lexington and is central.

The downtown convention center could easily accommodate Botcon and there's lots of hotels. As well as 4th Street Live which is a lot of bars and eateries within walking distance.




If it's good enough for the Kentucky Derby, it's good enough for Botcon icon-waspy.gif
