Thats because BotCon 2007 kicks off tomorrow (June 28), in Providence, Rhode Island, bringing metal-morphing maniacs together to celebrate all things Transformers.
But its more than just grown men playing with toys.
BotCons organizing director Brian Savage says, Its like a family reunion. People come from all over the world giant robots transcend all cultures.
He adds, A lot of people know each other from chat rooms, and they get here and find they have friends and they didnt even know their names!
And while the robot revelers will be surrounded by the fantastic plastic toys, there are limits to how far fans will go.
Not too many people come in costume, because, Savage explains, Its a hard costume to make. You cant sit down for lunch when youre Optimus Prime.
Transformers hits theaters July 4th, and for more convention info visit botcon.com.
