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 toWildPig 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.
Hey, you folks near New York City! Did you know that to the west, just over the river, there's this other state? And right there, in this mystical land called "New Jersey," is the humble town of Springfield. It may or may not neighbor Shelbyville, but it is going to be host to WildPig II. And I'm going to be there on Saturday and Sunday.
I'll be there with my usual stuff: Comics, posters, stickers, prints, magnets, sketches! You should come see me and my buddies. I'm excited! I'm excited to be in friggin' NEW JERSEY. Randy Milholland is driving TWENTY-FIVE HOURS from TEXAS to be in NEW JERSEY. So you know this is serious.
