If there are any slots available, I would be interesting in registering. If I am not able to attend however, would I still be able to get the items in the grab bag? Thanks!

Since there will be M-wings available, is there any opportunity to obtain M-wing building instructions?

HappyStikBeaver, I sent you a pm with additional instructions to complete registration.

That leaves one more slot open.

sorry ranasing, you registered for the forums after the cut off date of the 17th.

Epic Win. Flawless Victory. Thank you... looking forward to it--if only for the opportunity to swoosh my own...

If there is still one more spot I'd love to fill it since I'm now in SoCal - I had some issues with transport, but that should be right now, hence the delayed response.

I see that registration is now closed, but I also saw mention of a waiting list earlier. My dad, my 11 month-old son and I are going to LEGOLand on the 18th for Star Wars weekend (tri-generational celebration for us SW geeks). I would like to register myself for BOTHCON. If anyone backs out I'll take his/her spot...or if you raise the total back up to 20 members.

Would make a great Father's Day weekend. Sorry I didn't see the post about registration earlier.

Update to the goody bag:

Due to a very generous donation from The LEGO Group, each goody bag will also contain 1 copy of 8084 Snowtrooper Battle Pack and 1 copy of 30050 MINI Republic Attack Shuttle. The bags that would have contained 2 copies of 30050, now will only contain 1 copy, and the other copy replaced with 8028 MINI TIE Fighter.

Obviously not LEGO Star Wars, but does anyone who is going to LEGOLAND also collect the Star Wars Vinylmation?

This was absolutely fantastic. Thanks to all who put so much effort into this. Looking forward to next year. Kudos also to sparkart for filling up the table, too. The display table looked great with all the wonderful MOCs sent in by everyone.

My family and I had a awesome time at the Bothcon 2011. To the FBTB staff who did all the coordination and planning, you all did fantastic job. The goody bag was suberb on all levels and the t-shirt was really cool. All the display models were awesome and it was nice to put some names to faces. The Bothcon competitions were great, although I discovered I am not a speed builder at all. I was really blown away that I was allowed to keep the General Grievous set, I was not expecting that at all. Thanks again all for a really awesome day!

Great, GREAT Event! Thanks to Ace, Ryan, and Don for all their work, coordinating, and getting the FBTB Conventioneers some fantastic SWAG (Stuff We All Get). I was honestly blown away by the amount and the coolness of the giveaways provided by FBTB and Lego.

The only thing that troubled me was Ace saying, me "might" do this next year. MIGHT?! MUST, Bothcon must become an annual event at Star Wars Days at Legoland.

I knew I would be hopelessly outmatched at the convention building events, but it was fantastic fun just participating. I couldn't stop chuckling when the little kid came to the Birthday Area, and with wide-eyes asked, "Who's birthday is THIS?!" while watching all the adults fidding with their Lego sets.

Thanks, again, for a great mini-con, FBTB. Banthafodder, the Force is with you, always.
