It is coming up quick. I'm not looking to stand in line this year to get people the newest toy and or gadget, but aside from that, does anybody have any Comic Con requests? Things to be photographed or whatever?
I am of course going to spend some time with the guys and gals from the 'bro and ask variations of "what's new" in hopes of getting some positive news.

Awwww, c'mon Radar what do you mean the 'Bro was optimistic.?
I notice your not referencing anyone's name at "the "bro".
Besides, we've heard alot of hiatus and relaunch poop before, so what constitutes optimism?
There is no way Hasbro is going to spend any more money on manufacturing Tix (from design to shelf costs) especially in this economic climate.
The only chance we have is if there is a considerable amount of finished product sitting in some warehouse and Hasbro is trying to figure out a way that they won't lose money by putting them out again. Besides, Wally World doesn't want a product that has such a high shrink rate on its shelves...
That's basically what I was getting at. Optimistic means no real plans, but it would be cool if it happened.
I was a little disappointed not to see the 2 guys I regularly talk to at the convention. I only got to speak with one of the guys who helped create it...and without digging through the forum and all her old posts, ...his name escapes me.
I didn't think the clam shells had as high of a shrink rate as the triangle boosters, but I never really got any solid data on that.
I know the country is having some economic difficulties, but people are still buying toys for their kids. Toy companies are still making toys. So, there is still some hope. Granted, it seems less daily, but it still remains a possibility.
but I'm not holding my breath.
on a more fun note, go to my facebook page for some really great photos of celebrities and cosplayers with laser tag. Be sure to like it to see the new stuff coming.
Hey Radar i was there on thursday but it slipped my mind to ask where you would be, Due to the rediculously high risk of dissapointment i try not to think of tix that much anymore when going to stores or conventions. lol
