MAC AUS CON 09' - BRISBANE! '.. it's official!&#39

Recommended Posts

Hey guys! sorry for the long no updates, but have been mighty busy talking to some more sponsors!

I will post some updates later tonight, word from Ben Burns (Regent) and also Overdrive.

Also been talking to some people in regards to some suprises on the Sunday. ;)

Stay tuned.

:edit:

Updates!

Overdrive -

Matt

Let's start with the package for your con first. One of the problems

will be that since it will take at least a month to get to you you'll

have to stick with anything out by April 1st. I can't guarantee anything

after April 1st will get to you by the con if sent by surface mail. As a

example it takes about 40 days for a package to get to the US if you

send by surface mail. I'm sure I can get the VF-1D to

you by the con but for anything else if they get even a little delayed

there is a chance it might not get there in time. I'll send a list for

the scheduled release dates for a few items.

1/60 VF-1A Max TV Ver:April

1/60 VF-1S Max :March

1/60 VF-1D : February

1/60 VF-11B: April

1/60 Destroid Defender Khaki Green(New, picture included):April

Bandai VF-25 Mikal and Luca: Late March

As they are usually released towards the end of the month the Max TV ver

and VF-11 will probably not get there. Also I can get anything in the

1/60 series released earlier if there's anything someone missed.

There's a few important thing everyone needs to know about sending

things by surface mail. Surface mail is really bad on the boxes if you

want a totaly undamaged box you should not be buying it in this manner.

We will put cushining in the box but the item itself will not be wraped.

This is one of our conditions for doing things like this. The toy should

be fine but please assume you will get a damaged box. No insurance will

be available and you are ordering at your own risk. I've never had

anything really badly damaged but there's always a certain amount of

risk so I will warn you guys in advance. Please make sure everyone's

aware of the risk of sending things by surface mail and that this is

only for mass orders we will not send by surface mail for individual

customers.

Sorry for the long message but thought I should make everything clear to

you guys before we start doing anything.

This doesn't mean we can't go halvies or thirdsies with EMS to get in the Max TV-1A or VF-11B.

We will save a buttload on shipping.

Hey guys! Aikurisu is going to post this for me while I’m afk from the comps, Thanks Aikurisu for your help!!

Below is discussion with Overdrive with regards to the special con group order deal/s.

Please let me know by the end of the weekend if you want to secure one of these v.2 VF-1’s (listed below)

and all other items listed on their website which are either in-stock, or have a pre-order date before April,

so Overdrive can make arrangements for the packages and what else they are sending to us for the con, Cool.

Matt

About the orders. I need the number of pieces you need for the following

items by the following date.

1/60 VF-1A Max TV Ver: February 9

1/60 VF-1S Max : February 9

1/60 VF-1D : February1

1/60 VF-11B: February1

It may be possible to increase numbers after the deadline but no

decrease will be allowed after the deadline so be careful when you send

in the numbers. I can't guarantee the Bandai VF-25 Mikal and Luca right

now we're asking for more but until it's released I'm not sure how many

more we can get.

We'll ask for half of the payment for them within a week of the order.

The remaining half and the shipping fees will be asked for a few days

before they come in.

Some info about EMS shipping below -

Shipping via EMS for a box of non super parts VF-1's should be $100. The Kakizaki 1/60 and VF-1A Max Movie versions were official announced yesterday but since they're all scheduled for May don't think it'll get there in time even if you send it by EMS. Also if any one's interested in the Beagle Ride Armor we can do that to if you need any.

Don't forget I need at least an estimated number for a few items by the next Monday. I'll send you a head up on friday.

Regards

Overdrive.

haha no one will be using high end valks in the end game

The 'Grand Final' will be restricted to both pilots using standard VF-1's of the same head variant. equal against equal. No armour/strike/super FP's either.

It's a con based around the original SDF series and DYRL? celebration, next years con will be probably Plus orientated, dunno, how about some feedback from members here?

As for the YF-21, i think it will be banned, unless we have mission based comps, but i'm leaning more towards VS comps.

Thanks for dropping in MATE! ^_____^

Also thinking about banning missile Spam, but i'm looking into how to rule it. Like in reality, you can only fire so many, so i guess we can limit it like that.

Good Paintball goes for a good 6 hours, so we have to take that into consideration, and there's no daylight saving in the eastern states.

Hell yeah, Warpaint22 has confirmed he's coming to the con guys! And he's dibbed the front seat that was vacant. :D

gallery_3118_280_328.jpg

You guys that said you were coming in the old thread, would you like to re-confirm please for the good of the con?

I'll send out a mass PM next week, remember payments aren't due till a month before the con, so still heaps of time to save up 107 bucks.

Remember what we got at the con, 12 hours of 1st class cinema, own private toilets, private elevator (security), room for displays which means we don't need to hire a separate room,

close to the rail stations, and foodcourts, cafe right downstairs, but the overall big picture is we don't need to hire another room for the display part of the con which is just as cool as the

big screen, which is going to be a one off! Future cons will be held in all the other states main cities which haven't had a con yet, like Perth, Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide.

It's a Macross Fans dream come true this con.

ScreamMan - your still looking for a share-up? Warpaint22 should be up for it, please send him a PM when you get time mate. :)

Alright!, another weekend gone (too fast...) i got a mission for con attendees -

Everyone who is bringing stuff to the con, could you please let me know what your intending on showing on the day??

1. we don't want to double up, as with the PMs i'm getting we have quite ALOT coming! :D

2. so i can work out on how many display cases we need to hire.

The 1/72 artists are bringing quite alot of awesome stuff along, i want to have the majority of them and room enough for all 1/60 and 1/48 (and other scales) collectors as well,

and then there is posters and other colectables that may or may not need a separate case. Excited to have so many modellers coming along...

Hi all, back on the forum been gone for a while if you noiced....lol. Anyway Ruskii has asked the following inside info to be posted and as I have more spare time I've been happy to be involved with the con as it's been a long time comming and a good chance to have some macross fun.

Ruskii has been very busy with all the organising and is happy to report that he is negotiating with a popular Anime Magazine for sponsorship and with luck some cool prizes. All this is leading to a great convention.

I myself am at work on a momento for all "Saturday" con attendies to help remember this event, so please make sure you have confermed your place on the Saturday as numbers will soon need to be finalised so get your seats.

OK..... for displays Ruskii has been at work and making sure we have plenty of room which we should have to display everything. Below is a reply from Ben Burns (Regent Theatrette) about display space.

Along the corridor there we can definitely have tables set up to one side the whole way down. There is only one door that this will obstruct and I dont even think it opens anymore ! haha.

As for spare rooms, we might be struggling here. The only rooms we have up there are the two toilets, fire escape and a small electric/cleaners room. None of which could be used for displays etc. Sorry.

Definitely room down the front to set up tables for prizes. The speakers are not effected here.

Hope this helps. Certainly getting closer now!

Ben Burns, Regent Theatrette

See pictures of the theatre are at the beginning of this tread for those who haven't read the full tread.

So all is comming togeater nicely.

Also anyone from the old tread can you please re-confirm you attendence as confirmed numbers are important for us to keep track of everyone who is comming, also if you are a maybe could you let us know...Thanks

Please feel free to PM me if you have any questions. :)

post-5632-1235703867_thumb.jpg

Also we would love to see some Custom model valks for a Model Compitition, as we need a good comp to give out the prizes from or Great Sponsors. I myself have a plan for a custom Valk (with Australia in mind) which I hope will make the Con, so we'd love to see what will turn up from or modelers. Especially from the Famous PeterB and Cowie. I'm sure every body will be excited to see what will turn out for display. :)
