Yamcha would be a better President than Trump...

Damning with faint praise there.

Don't blame me! I voted for Kodos!

No, all the evils people voted for in 2016 were known.

@  Rycochet : (23 January 2017 - 09:35 AM)

Didn't people have enough of voting for unknown evils in 2016? Come on, it's so last year.

@  Robowang : (23 January 2017 - 08:49 AM)

woooo Unknown Evil

@  ▲ndrusi : (23 January 2017 - 08:21 AM)

Jinbu has legs that go all the way up.

@  Rycochet : (23 January 2017 - 07:11 AM)

Unless you really like legs that go all the way up to the armpits.

@  Rycochet : (23 January 2017 - 07:11 AM)

I would say repaint Jinbu from Transformers Go, but let's not, they're just awful.

@  Pennpenn : (22 January 2017 - 07:20 AM)

He's samurai themed? Anyway, I meant "samurai themed" in the Bludgeon's Pretender shell sense.

Armada Starscream?

@  Pennpenn : (22 January 2017 - 07:13 AM)

Actually I'm vaguely surprized samurai themed Seekers haven't somehow congealed within the TF brand at some point.

For the kaiju/restaurant theme, better be the Samurai Pizza Cats instead.

@  Rycochet : (21 January 2017 - 12:28 PM)

I prefer Mighty Morphin' Meower Rangers.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (21 January 2017 - 12:07 PM)

Okay, that got too weird, let's just use the Megazordenny's instead.

@  ▲ndrusi : (21 January 2017 - 09:20 AM)

no, no, not all hope for the characters, all hope for the viewer understanding what the hell is going on.

Isn't that like.. every second spent watching Eva? *hides!*

@  Telly : (21 January 2017 - 02:26 AM)

usually about halfway through, when all hope seems lost

@  Copper Bezel : (21 January 2017 - 02:01 AM)

I understand using Eva to fight monsters, but where does Bob come into it?

@  PlutoniumBoss : (21 January 2017 - 01:29 AM)

Of course we'll need Bob EVAs to fight all these critters...

@  PlutoniumBoss : (21 January 2017 - 01:21 AM)

Or Otachipotle.

@  RichardT1977 : (20 January 2017 - 11:03 PM)

Sorry Waspinator, but Sean Bean already reserved that one.

@  Pennpenn : (20 January 2017 - 07:24 PM)

Fair enough, sorry. Although, I think as more people get upset you're going to see it leaking out more.

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 January 2017 - 06:25 PM)

Can the politics stay in P&R? I don't really need an emetic that badly.

@  Pennpenn : (20 January 2017 - 05:37 PM)

All of Trump's base are stone cold morons, so there's that. Then again, a lot of people would argue that America has nevr been "great", or even when it is there's plenty to bring down it's score.

@  Vexwing : (20 January 2017 - 04:18 PM)

A lot of Trump's base would probably claim it stopped being great 8 years ago.

@  Locoman : (20 January 2017 - 03:44 PM)

And today is National Cheese Lover's Day, apparently, so perhaps we should make America grate again while we're at it

@  Bass X0 : (20 January 2017 - 03:43 PM)

How long has it not been great for?

@  Nevermore : (20 January 2017 - 02:34 PM)

Finally, America is great again.

@  wonko the sane? : (20 January 2017 - 12:03 PM)

Me too!

@  Arazyr : (20 January 2017 - 10:08 AM)

My daughters and I have been looking forward to that!

@  Benbot : (20 January 2017 - 09:44 AM)

Nevermind that. Today is a day to celebrate, because season 2 of Voltron is up on Netflix!

@  ShadowMan024 : (19 January 2017 - 06:51 PM)

Past 8 years? Try "past 241."

@  Xellos : (19 January 2017 - 06:44 PM)

So basically the same as the past 8 years. Guess that works too.

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 January 2017 - 06:25 PM)

We as a nation either drank too much or not enough. It's difficult to say, really.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (19 January 2017 - 06:10 PM)

Isn't America being crazy drunk how we got in this situation in the first place?

@  BlackMax : (19 January 2017 - 04:18 PM)

I plan on being very American about every single injustice our new leader perpetrates ("American" of course meaning "annoyed and loud").

I've got a few TF items that I want to get autographed by the guests. Is there a strict limit on how many items each person in line can get signed?

Also, I heard that the Peter Cullen line is always intense, and that people who get there too late may not be able to get an autograph. Do people start waiting in line somewhere before the autograph sessions actually start? If so, how early should I plan on getting in line to guarantee a Cullen autograph? I have friends counting on me.

You guys hadn't heard?

Cullen's Autograph line is a lottery.

He's doing 125 and it's entirely random chance.

Good luck....

I didn't notice that before - unfortunate, but necessary. I've been in the loooong lines, and turned away from a closed autograph session. Cullen's autograph is much sought after, and valuable. I hope the need for this doesn't bleed over to the other guests anytime soon.

Yeah if Peter's line wasn't random you'd have to get in line hours before as ever since the first film was released (so after his BotCon 2007 autograph, which even that wasn't easy) he's become very hard to get his autograph due to how popular a draw he is.

WTCHOP?! When the heck was this announced? That stinks.


P.S. I wish they had the lottery system for the Customizing Class. Those things sell out so fast, only the super-hardcore constantly monitoring for the convention announcement have a chance.

It depends on the guest. If it's a popular guest you may want to get to the line an hour before. Either way, you want to make sure you're in line at least when it starts.

Two or so years ago an hour... a half hour was fine. You could get as many Autographs as you wanted as a Primus holder, provided you waited in line a lot. However they DID cut lines off last year. Scott McNeil's was cut off an hour- hour and a half before the signing even started. So if you REALLY want a specific autograph. Plan well in advance.

Most people should be available for Autographs on both days too so that should hopefully cut down on some of the lines.

Frankly, it increases your chance of getting an autograph from Cullen, unless you plan to start lining up for him the day before.

That only increases odds for people who aren't hardcore about getting in line early.

I would totally do that for a Cullen autograph. I've waited in some pretty horrendous lines, and at least this one would be indoor.

But it totally understand that it would suck for people choosing between waiting in line and everything else at Botcon.

But it that's how it is, I really hope they have a lottery for the customizing class next year.

Conventions Centers are never that big. Walk by the autograph area 2hrs, 1 1/2 and 1 hr before the autograph session starts. If there's a a line of more then 8-10 already queuing, get into it.

Wow, I didn't know Cullen's lines had gotten so busy. I remember having to wait an hour, but my wife and I each got two items autographed that year.

I think I have a Robovision Prime, a TRU reissue G1 Prime, an Eeyore book for my wife, and my 25th Anniversary TFTM signed by Cullen.

Wait, I also have a poster and a print out of some comic panel where Prime rips off his head and throws it into the mud. I must have seen him two different years. Was he there in '08 as well? Or '06?
