Me and Robot Optimus Prime

Today’s Photo-A-Day was taken with my XShot in the dealer room at BotCon 2007. There was a giant statue of Optimus Prime from the Transformers Movie. I had to get a shot of me with Optimus Prime.

Today I am attending many seminars and panels and tonight there will be a concert by Stan Bush (He sing the song The Touch from the 1986 Transformers movie). So I will be busy going and finding out many things about the movie and the toys and lots of behind the scenes stuff.

During one of the panels I met David Willis who writes and draws a webcomic called Shortpacked. He was a pretty nice unassuming guy to meet in person. I like his web comic and told him so. I even gave him one of my BenSpark cards.

I met a few other people and recruited them to help me on a video that I will be releasing soon. I have to get to work on it. I’m not sure if I will have it ready for tomorrow but I certainly hope so.

I picked up a few of the vintage Transformers comics that I was still missing. Only 20 more to go to have the full US run from Marvel. Some prices were good and some were outrageous. Wish me luck finding more.

I took many more pictures and added them to my BotCon 2007 Gallery on Flickr. Enjoy.

    The old archives do start in 2003. I actually started on a blogger blog and have slowly been moving the content from that blog to this one. But yes, 2003 was when I began blogging. Thanks for taking the time to read some old posts.

    Hey there Layouts,
    Rest assured that the movie does do Optimus full justice. You will know instantly that Prime is the bot we all know and love.

    While Optimus Prime is great, I wouldn’t mind having my picture take with Beyonce Bot. Have you see this?

    Looks like EVERYONE is getting in on the Transformer movie. I hope that that movie isn’t getting overhyped to the point of not being able to fulfill expectations. For now, I’ll just wait until I read your review of it.

  7. Drew says:

    Hey there Snoskred, Thanks fro reading my blog. I will keep searching for the comics, I may have to suck it p and pay for them at the high prices but I will keep on trying.

  8. Drew says:

    Hi there Ron, I check out your blog all the time from the Linky List. I had not seen Beyonce Bot but that was a pretty cool costume of her.

    I did write a review of the Transformers movie from when I saw it Twice Thursday night. That is on my blog BenSpark 2: Electric Boogaloo.

    The movie is absolutely worthy of the hype. It is a thrilling, exciting and explosive ride.
