For now they are "con-exclusives" but depending if the "organisers" wanna handle preorders and shipping, we'll open it for preorders later. ;)

You offer sizes other than L and you'll probably get many pre-orders!

Hi Hakim and Sahir!

Wow you guys coming down from opposite sides of Malaysia. Glad to have you join us. ;)

Hakim: Correct, it is just opposite of IDP Australia. If you know where is IDP, then you're already 99% to Taylor's. ;)

Sahir: If you take KTM to Subang Jaya, I think best if you take a taxi from there and tell the driver to get to Taylor's College main building. You probably pay about RM5 or less only.

And btw my news article went up in a local newspaper, The Star. Dang this event is getting bigger than I have anticipated.

The event was well organized. I arrived late afternoon. Seller booth, VFX game competition & DYRL Mov + Macross F preview was on schedule. Well the Movie was not really ontime but it is forgivable. Any way picture will be up soon. I can't figure out who in the end WolfX & Shahir is. Guys show ur self in the picture later.
