Roadtrip!

While the masses get increasingly restless as BotCon is roughly one month away with no preregistration yet, we do get some raw meat thrown down to us.  A few days ago we got to see Clench!  He’s Onslaught with a new head, in sparkly dark blue and bright pink.  This means he’s awesome.

We also got to see this year’s convention shirt, which glows in black light.  I’ve sworn off black BotCon shirts, since I just have too damn many, but I probably can’t resist a G2 blacklight shirt.  I mean, c’mon.

What we don’t get is BotCon preregistration three months ago.

I’m gettin’ up early today for my trip to WildPig II in New Jersey.  Guess who I’m road-tripping with?  Why, none other than Randy Milholland, because I’m pretty much on his way from Texas, so why not?We’re gonna pile up in his truck and godspeed ourselves to Springfield.

We may headbang.
