Fred's Robot Convention!



I went on an adventure on April 1st drove to Wisconsin to go to Fred's Robot Convention Rolled out to Cow Palace...for DairyCon
There's a robot con in the land of dairy It's called DairyCon but it's not about cheese When the Hasbro cons are all wack, these dairy boys go to Fond Du Lac
Let's all go to DairyCon Cows and GoBots and your mom wish they were at Dairycon Its moo than meets the eye there-MOO MOO POWER
Dairylanders love jumpstarter racing They like those robots that turn into machines And if you pick the mystery box, you just might get a bunch of broken GoBots
Hello my fellow Macrocranians and robots lovers from Dairyland Welcome to episode 86 of the ROBOPLASTIC PODCASTALYPSE

BUT FIRST THE USUAL ROBOTARDATIONS
F.I.S.H.B.O.T of the episode is this Snaptrap box complete with inner bubble and other inserts that sold for only 47 bucks! Fuck I Should Have Bid On That!



OH HOW IT PAINS ME TO READ THIS AD
K-Mart's September 17, 1986 'World's Greatest Toy Sale' circular was a nice showcase of 1986 action figures. Robots from Transformers The Movie were particularly well represented and the ad even included a rare appearance by a 5784 Decepticon Jets case Starscream. Unfortunately the ad used a very dark colored background that did not contrast well against the dark typeface used for the ad text, so prices and descriptions are hard to make out from the microfilm transfer.




AND NOW-DAIRYCON!

The Cow Palace was nice, big and roomy. It was well lit and smelled great.

I wanted that Snaptrap box so bad! But what were the chances that my raffle ticket number would be called at the right time?


Turned out they were pretty good!
