An Unexpected Change of Perspective...

My buddy Flywheels over at Random Toy Reviews is doing a look back on Botcons of the recent past in celebration of Botcon 2011 starting this weekend. His posts got me all nostalgic for "the good ol' days" and so I started looking at a lot of my old Botcon pictures as well. The funny thing about looking at old pictures is you see things you never saw before. Back in 2006 I was still very much focused on completing my Beast Wars collection and obtaining a lot more G1's. I took a lot of pictures of the dealer room that year, but when I went back to look at the pictures I saw something very interesting:

Yeah, that is a crapload of Tech Specs and Instruction booklets right there. Anyone who has been following this blog for any amount of time knows that these are my highest priority right now. I originally took the picture because I thought it was a good one of Fort Max, Overlord and Scorponok; it is so funny to find this five years later. What I wouldn't give to go back and yank all those up. But it gives me good hope for this year.

I also may have actually gotten Flywheels's head in this picture, but I can't be sure. He'll have to confirm that one for me.


  1. That does appear to be my bald head in the background!

    Wow, I bet those techs and instructions were selling cheap 5 years ago.

  2. That Fort Max looks cheap too at $425 complete??

  3. No kidding, I wish prices would drop back to pre-2007 levels. For that matter, I wish prices would drop back to pre-1990 levels!
