    Notes:

    Last year there was no parking in the "$11 Parking", so I went to
    "Alternate Connected Park". After going on the elevators (or stairs)
    in the parking garage to get to the "Habi-Trail", you will then end up
    in the main building, you will not be able to enter the show from
    there. Now (roughly) follow "Line 2" all the way to "Lobby and Badges".

    Remember - this is *not* a one story building. If I remember
    correctly, after both paths from parking join, you must go down stairs.

    Builder's Tip - Try to get in to iHobby Expo *before* 10:00 (public opening
    time). This way you can avoid a *long* wait to get your badge(s) (a
    few builders where talking about this last year), and get your robots ready.

    I will be going on Saturday and will post more tips for the Sunday people.

    Looks like most of the robot stuff is in that corner too!

    I will be at iHobby on Saturday and will be sure to stop by the TR booth!

    Sounds like there may be even 15 humanoids at Chibotica alone (about 10 builder owned):

    If anyone needs more information about iHobby/Chibotica, you can check out this forum post it covers almost everything:
