For those of you that missed it here and here – Richard Horvitz was a guest at Florida Supercon the weekend before last. He stopped by the Wasabi Anime Otaku Insomnia Rave dance party to say hi, and I brought him on stage with a cosplayer dressed as GIR. Zaniness ensued.
I thought the little girl dressed as GIR was going to explode from excitement when she got off stage and realized who she had just danced with. Pure convention awesome.
I’m back in Orlando for Botcon.
So myself, Joey Snackpants and special guest star and fellow Transformers geek Tentacle Chris will be braving the world of Transformers collectors in Orlando, Florida. Afterwards, Joey and I will be penning a review for the popular pop culture blog You Bent My Wookie.
Follow my Twitter for photos and updates all weekend as we see how Hasbro serves up an event for fans in sunny Central Florida. Look for the #Botcon hash tag READ the shocking details:
- How much money will Joey spend in toys his parents already bought him over twenty years ago?
- Will Tentacle Chris find someone else who also thought Transformers Animated was cool?
- What has Stan Bush been doing since JACON last year?
- Can the boys battle their way through the hardcore fans to meet Peter “Optimus Prime” Cullen?
A friend emailed these photos to me today. I am SO glad I went before it opened and would hate to be anyone in this picture standing out there in the June summer Florida weather…

Keep in mind, kids, that his is just the line to get into Islands of Adventure. You still have to wait in line to get into The Wizarding World of Harry Potter and then in line for the rides, shops, get butter beer, etc.
So – there’s an article about Florida Supercon on the Miami Herald website that features a small video of the show. Yes – that is my voice doing the voice over for it and (more importantly) that really is my hat:

EDIT: Found it on YouTube. Enjoy!
For that reason – there may not be a post a couple of days on the blog. See you on the other side of the weekend. :)
Our final day in Cancun was bittersweet. It was hard to say goodbye to the blue beaches and AWESOME tacos, but many of us were ready to return home to our own beds and safe drinking water. That morning, though, we went down to the beach one more time. Here are some of my other favorite photos I took during the trip…
