BotCon 2010: Thursdayon June 25, 2010 at 7:24 am
I got in and out of both of the registration and the souvenir add-on toy lines in about an hour! Holy crap, that’s a huge improvement over last year. Everything seemed to be running much more efficiently. (For example, nobody seemed to be running a line who was over the age of 85.)
Last year I was in line for… six hours? Yeah, six hours. Ahahahaha. Mind, that year’s problems were related to the launch of the Revenge of the Fallen toyline, which encouraged folks to take about 30 minutes a piece to look through BotCon’s stock of toys once they got up to the front of the line. Imagine going to Walmart and having people shop when they get up to the register. People were certainly doing that this year, but not to the same extremes. 75% of my hour was spent in the second line, even though I was the sixth person from the front of the line. Folks looooove to ask BotCon dudes to bring them every single toy on the shelf one by one so they can look at them. Man, those things are shelfwarming at Walmart! Go buy them there!
But still, only one hour spent in line this year = super awesome
