BTW Do I have to register? What is the benefit of registering again?

Registering helps us plan the event out better. If we get a good idea of how many to expect then we can make sure that we have enough space for both people and displays.

Also, if you register and sign in then you are automatically entered into certain raffles.

I believe I only registered for Saturday.

But now I'm going both days. Do I need to reg again?

You just need to register once but sign in both days, you'll be eligible for the raffles that day.

Hey everyone!

Sorry I've been incognito the past few weeks but as the final two weeks come down, we have a lot of planning to finish! Later, I will be posting a special raffle to all mw members for a special launch ceremony poster signed by tenpin himself. In addition, I will be posting special exclusive items from mari for auction or raffle.

I want to thank Save and otaku2.com as well as Tokyo-hunter.com for their amazing contributions to the con this year! They are really helping make this con special. I will sending info emails to all registrants later this week.

Hopefully, big kid will post a complete schedule of all the weekends events so people can see when to come. See u in 2 weeks!

Apologies for the tshirt mix up since i didn't update the registration page. but $25 for this awesome tshirt is still definitely worth it! We've never attempted a mwcon tshirt with such a unique design and so many colors!

Check out this year's Opportunity drawing for a chance to win an autographed Tenjin Hidetaka poster!

You wont be turned away, this is a bigger venue and MWCon is a small convention put together by fans. There won't be anything for sale per UCLA rules.

Question about the customs. I know we will be displaying them both Saturday and Sunday. We are not leaving them there over night are we? Reason I ask is because there might be a chance I won't stay there the whole time for one of those days. So what do we do?

THIS JUST IN! As you know, the Macross Frontier movie comes out in Japan on DVD and Blu-ray on October 7th and we will be receiving a Blu-ray copy to screen the Macross Frontier Movie on Sunday, October 10th at 11:30am!

IF there's a reason you can't come to the con this weekend, you better find a way there!

We will have security volunteers during the convention watching the displays during the hours of the con. From Saturday to sunday, we will be moving some of the displays into an adjacent room to be locked over night. Just to be safe, if you plan on attending both days, i would suggest taking your customs back with you on Saturday and bringing it back on Sunday.

are we allowed to take Pictures/Video of Mari Iijima Performance? i just dont want to bring my cam and be turned away saying no pictures/video allowed and have to return it to my car... (it has happend before to me)

Good question. You are allowed to take Photographs ONLY during the performance with no flash! No videography by attendees will be allowed. We will have only 1 official videography crew recording the event and will release it to the public if approved by Mari.

Thanks

Hello All!

Looking forward to spinning some great Anime vinyl records throughout the day this year for Macross Con 10! I picked up a lot of great records this year including many Mari Iijima and Kumi Miyasato solo records ( sadly another package from Japan with a lot of great records will not arrive in time for this weekend).

Also if anybody wants to sell me an unbuilt boxed Arii 1/100 Spartan model kit out of your trunk in the parking lot for a reasonable price ($10-$20) please bring it!

I've never seen Mari Live so I'm looking forward to the concert and give her my respect!
