Recommended Posts

It's good to see we are a week closer, excitement getting bigger every week. Most productive week and a lot of hard work BIG THANKS RUSKII, we seem to be attracting some great sponsors, this con is going to rock. We haven't finished yet either and I would bet on a few more sponsors before the con date!

Big thanks to Sonic ( Sonic IT) for the work going into the flyer/add for us.

Awesome news!!!!!! :)

What, a category 4 or 5 Cyclone / Hurricane? XD :lol: is Cyclone even on this forum... can;t remember what his user name is... from RT forum right?

PETERB mate~!!!!! Cool you dropped in! If you fly it's a little something special for the con ain't it? Won't need to find a park too! Whole day event too to keep in mind (parking).

You got a custom planned mate besides your awesome figures? i want their to be a vf custom modelling comp, with 1st 2nd 3rd prizes, so no one goes empty handed, all for fun of course!

Warpaint22 has something prettY damn cool in store i'm sure, also i'm positive the modelling section of diplays at the con will leave everything else for dead!

Great to hear PeterB, I would say fly if you can as parking sucks in Brisbane and can be expensive. Depends on how much stuff your bringing I guess. Ruskii will have to swim down I think...lol. :p

Looking forward to seeing some of your masterful models PeterB, can't wait...we should have a good model showing. :)

Hasn't hit us yet lol, it was going to be a maximum category 5, but now they reckon cat 4, oh that's not going to help much seeing that Cyclone Tracy was cat 3...... (me bit north of Yeppoon)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cyclone_Tracy - of course housing regulations have put a stop to those paper like built houses back then, so we should be good. But still!

Ryzui Variable, a "Macross" related sponsor! , will be striving to make Mac Aus Con 09 extremely successful and will push to achieve her maximum

potential in various, variable ways, to the best of Ryzui Variable’s ability. Ryzui Variable consists of hardcore fandom and is wanting to punch in

all it's efforts to bring Macross Fans the most spectacular experience

The sponsor has expressed it's love for Macross in all forms, and asks if each member could support the con by attending

the Saturday, only so many seats to be filled, but very important that they are reserved, we need everyone to pitch in to make this con successful, remember it's made for YOU fans!.

Ryzui variable wishes to thank all who are helping with the con's preparations! Lookiing forward to May, Macross Rules.

Not a problem. Its not all about the movie marathon.

I can't work out to stay a few days before the con and leave soon after, or come just before the con and leave a week later.

Ruskii,

Too right~! There is a period between viewings (we are hoping 30 mins but it's not decided) which will be a short open period for the public.

This period will be for the cosplay tourneys (for ticket holders who will cosplay), which we will be using the hall area, beautiful surroundings/stairs and a MAF (PSP Macross Ace Frontier) match.

Actual displays will be shut off from the public, as it's up stairs (locked), and during the open period we will all be downstairs.

The amount of stuff on show will b up around the TENS of THOUSANDS of Dollars. We need to keep it locked. With big bouncers/security measures. It will be TIGHT.

As you should know, the tickets cost should be viewed as a two in one deal.

Half of it is hiring the venue and checking out con exclusive customs and RARES, and the other half is the 12 hour marathon.

How much do you pay to see a hollywood lacklustre movie? 15 bucks for 2 hours? This is MACROSS man, @ 12 hours. How much does it cost to go to the Supernova?

When you go up that elevator exclusive ONLY to Mac Aus Con 09 members your going to assured to react just like JIM -

69403314.gif The reaction wil be priceless!!!

107 bucks doesn't sound so bad does it when you break it down? It's like the holiday you've always pined for as a bloke, who's really into Macross. The Ultimate day off.

This is a non-profit con, no one is making money out of this, and i have already reached into my own pocket for an un-disclosed amount, but people in the know know what it was for.

I'll bleed for this con if i have to. LOL. Warpaint22, Shazzam, Cowie, PetarB, Gtmishima, Sonic, , Kensei and our internationalists POLIDREAD, our sponsors! All believe in MAC AUS CON.

I don't understand, why the tickets haven't been snapped up already, i'm a little dissapointed to be honest thatwe haven't got all the seats filled by members here.

The value of the ticket is damn good. The con is getting bigger and bigger and people are still humming and harring? Support the con guys!

Look at all our sponsors?? The effort put in by members, people want this con to be huge, fans giving it their all for FANS. :D

btw add in Animavericks is going in their March issue. Awesome!!

Sonic!!! YOUR POSTER IS F'N AWESOME. It's guys like you which make me proud to be a Macross fan! We are so lucky to have you! Thankyou!

More news later, i'm busy. :p

MODELING CONTEST!!!! (THERE WILL BE TWO TYPES)

1st will be custom paint jobs! (the obvious one)

and 2nd will be custom model variable fighter! (which involves heavily modyfying an existing kit into something glorious!)

1st, 2nd and 3rd prizes will be given. PetarB, WARPAINT22 and Cowie are already noted as competitors in the comps!

This is going to be fantastic for all to see~! Violent Works of Art!

These competitions and kits involved only apply to kits done by the masters, no commisioned pieces will be accepted if your not the artist, alls fair!

LET ME KNOW VIA PM OR E-MAIL IF YOU WANT TO SUBMIT A DESTROID/NON-VARIABLE MECHA OK!

VARIABLE CUSTOM CONTESTS! (again, there are TWO TYPES)

1st is just the same as the Modelling contest! ALL ABOUT ORIGINAL CUSTOM PAINT SCHEMES!

I will need notification by PM or vf1custom@live.com.au if you are intending to submit your art.

Reason being we will need to figure out how many and what prizes to allocate. SO, if your going to bring a 1/48 - 1/60 or other perfect variable scaled

art (needs to be transformable), let me know, all items submitted will REMAIN unknown till all members gather on the con date, then the fun will begin!

2nd needless to say, will be all about heavily modifying the existing mold and making it more violent or beautiful than it was originally created.

Mod your chosen varibale fighter to become even more badass! Again these must be done by yourself, and not be commisioned.

As far as i know there will be only ONE main prize for the one voted most by the max 22 members for both of the PV comps. :D

MISC CUSTOM CONTEST!

Ok this is the extra interesting one!

This is all to do with CUSTOMS that are MACROSS ONLY RELATED and are not Variable Fighters or Mecha (i'm talking about destroids lol).

This can include clothing/apparel, modeling customs like figures(!) big or small, or Capital customs (ex - SDF-1 or >insert here< specials :p ) or other ARTs.

These however CAN be submitted if they are done by yourself OR have been commisioned by a master! If the master is present and is competing against you

he will have extra credit awarded by the Mac Aus Con 09 members (being again the MAX 22 members) BUT they must be original and never been seen before!

There is a way around this, if the have been shown to on extent online (as in production/in process build up pics!), they must be painted up as fully intended and

for the first time, been seen in the flesh! EXCLUSIVE TO MAC AUS CON.

Put some more thought into the con board, a maximum of 7 Members is the cap.

You guys need to inform me of your intentions if your wanting to get on board. Only 2 positions vacant, would be great tohave another state member!

Neo?????

For the moment the Sponsor has wished to remain unknown for this lol.. TOTALLY AWESOME gesture, and will make himself known on con date or when he feels the needs!!!

AHH, what NEXT??? We got two of the biggest Sponsors OVERDRIVE AND HLJ.COM, now we got a sponsor wishing to come to the party pakin!

He wants to make sure everyone has an awesome time, and for there to be that "extra incentive" for those lagging 10 seats to be filled by true fans!!!

GO AUSSIES! So... polls going up... lol ths is awesome... What d'you think JIM???

Jim looks like he got the MacAusCon address mixed up and walked into a Star Trek convention by mistake... so... many... phasers...
