Seriously, this is the dumbest shit I've ever seen.

I'd like to go but there's nothing to get excited about. I don't care about the new movie. I hate all of the fucking movie toys. The Generations line is great but they're to fucking small and need better paint jobs. The cartoon is just ok. Wish they'd bring back the beast wars writers at least for one episode.

While i'm talking transformers, what's up with the fucking Masterpiece toys? Masterpiece Rodimus costs too damn much and it falls apart if you look at it wrong. This new Masterpiece Convoy/Prime could end up being cool if it comes same accessories as Hybrid style Convoy. But it's smaller than the original Masterpiece Convoy/Prime and it cost more. HUH?

The real reason to go is for the camaraderie.
I've had a whole lot of fun in all the years I went.
Wish I could go this year, but Cali just isn't doable right now.

Dude, Megatron sounded like he was voiced by an old man who was kidnapped from an old folks home and forced at gun point by loopy Transformer fans to voice Megatron... and since he has alzheimer's he forgot how to fight back and just decided to roll with it.  Which is funny because he's also in a wheelchair.

They see how much money the non-licensed smaller version is getting and they realized there's should be smaller, too.

I still want to go at least one year ... but I don't want it to be a year that has anything to do with the Bay movies.

Transformers is like Sonic the Hedgehog. That shit was hot back in the day, but now you'd be better served just pretending it doesn't exist.

I would have liked to have gone to Botcon (remember OTFUCK? Heh) back when I was active in the fandom. Now...if it's not BONRcon I'm pretty much not for it.

I liked transformers more when it was mainly 80s nostalgia.

Me too, but I liked things better when people would look at my (then rare) autobot symbol t shirt and get a far away look in their eyes as they tried to remember what it is.

Some co-workers of mine were all going on about Transformers and then I realized they were actually talking non-stop about Bayformers.  Boo hoo.

I still love the fiction of G1, particularly with it being streamlined yet still somewhat fractured with War for Cybertron. And the Classics/Universe/Generations line has me hooked.

Even some of Reveal the Shield is pretty damn good. I picked up Sergeant Kup and Scourge the other day. Why can't all TF be like these?

I like the TF United versions better. I'm gonna buy all of them after I sell off my AEC collection.
