Oh Galvatron, mwa mwa mwa!

Shortpacked!: Joe may be a genius, but he's not very smart.

The Transformers Wiki got invited to Hasbro's "Collectors Event" at Toy Fair this year.  This is where a buncha website dudes show up, Hasbro does a presentation, and everyone gets to look at some of the toys being offered this year.  We take pictures, we hurry to be the first ones to put them up, yadda yadda.

And holy cow, I'm going on behalf of the Wiki!  Being (sort of) at Toy Fair is something I've always sort of dreamed of, so I'm ecstatic.  I'm also apprehensive, since I've actually never been to New York City before.  I sorta drove through the northern boroughs on the way to ConnectiCon last year, but that hardly counts.  It took 15 minutes.  So, yeah, it'll be a new experience.

So, hey, NYC-local folks, anyone have any advice on getting a hotel?  I've already searched a bunch and found one I may go with, but figgered I'd mention it here before making a commitment.  The Toy Fair Collectors Event is basically in Times Square, so that's where I'm looking at.

Woooo!

Today's photos are of BotCon 2002 Cyclonus.  He's another of my Random Photos For The Wiki.  I'm, uh, actually very pleased that his chrome shows absolutely no sign of shedding.  (Unlike, say, Shokaract's frightening spider-webbing.)  He's super-pretty!   And whee, his electronics still work, even.  Hot dog.
