Sometimes, in the earlier BotCons, before all the cliques were formed, you’d actually be approached by people you didn’t know who wanted to talk Transformers, because this was, well, BotCon, so if you’re gonna talk about Transformers this is probably the place. ¬†Anyone who still remembered Transformers existed were there, as this was the late Nineties. ¬†This meant sometimes you’d find yourself with a hanger-on who kind of followed you around like a lovesick puppy, sort of whispering things to you or really anyone in particular about Transformers under his breath.

Either that’s what was going on or I’m just not great at making friends.
