YOU HAVE GOT TO FUCKING BE KIDDING ME!!!!

| 6 Comments

Ok.

So you want me to spend hundreds of dollars to fly to Rhode Island.

Then you want me to spend hundreds of dollars on lodging and food.

Then you want me to spend hundreds of dollars a Primus package + additional money for all the extra figures for the con.

Ok. I understand that. I've done that before and still spent $800+ in the dealer room.

And now you want me to spend $25 for fucking ticket to see Transformers the movie???

$25 to see the movie a week early?

YOU HAVE GOT TO FUCKING BE KIDDING ME!!!!

I figured at least you and Hasbro would throw us goddamn loser fans a bone and give us a free showing of the goddamn film!

$25?!?!?!?!

Bwhahahahahahaahahahahhaahah!!!

Fuck you.

I'll spend $7.25 or so to see it back here in Cowtown.

I even... and this'll sound shocking I know... posted something to a message board thread but I seem to be in the minority in this opinion.

I ended up deleting my post but of course it was too late to have been quoted. Oh well.

I forgot how much I hate message boards.

Thankfully it'll be another year or two before I post probably ever post again.

i thought that was a little curious too when i was persuing the flyer. they did say it was going to charity though ... which makes it a little bearable i suppose.

it's funny how all of the posters after nala's make themselves out as big humanitarians...as if any of them would donate regardless of the movie being shown.

"don't you know that all the money is going to CHARITY???" (read as: nala is an a-hole for not wanting see the movie as early as humanly possible.)

oy.

whatever people need to rationalize it, i guess.

it would be interesting to see how many of the posters previously bashed the movie, etc., etc.

None of that changes the fact that Hasbro/Paramount/MC have a totally captive audience that would probably fork over $50/ticket to see it 1 week early.

I'm really wondering how high the ticket price actually went before $25 being the final decision.

I'm actually wondering the % supposedly going to charity too.

If I say I'm collecting money for charity and you give me $100 does the fact that I'm only going to give 1% to charity affect what you give me?

Anything with the word charity in it should bring suspicion.

After I found out how much United Way and other organization take off the top for "administrative purposes" I stopped giving.

It doesn't matter.

It doesn't change the fact that I'm a total fucking loser for going to Botcon.

It is entirely my own fault.

>I forgot how much I hate message boards.

Amen to that.

Nala - Cheep up mate, you get to go to BotCon 2007 and you'll be one of the few who actually get to complete the TF Classic seekers line.

Typo in previous post: it should say: "Cheer up mate"
