Have a great time everyone and make sure to post lots of pics. I look forward to watching the transforming contest clips when you post them up. DECULTURE!!!!

The guy at the checkpoint looked at me funny as my bag went through the scan, then he asked, "What are these? Airplanes?

LOL sounds like one time when I was flying out of Tokyo, the xray guy passed my bag through 3 or 4 times, I could see the layers of my Hasegawa and wave kits on the screen intermingled with my clothes etc. I was thinking Oh here we go its gonna be sorry you cant take these kits. He then just looked at me and then shouted "Macross!! Deculture!!" and let me take my bag. I spoke to him when it got quiet and it turns out hes a big Macross fan and wanted to know what kits I had :)

Have fun Guys sorry I cant be there.

I hope that someone will post some high quality pics of all the displays. Ron's SDF-1 diorama is soooooooo awesome!!!! I cant wait to see more posts on this thread.

Reminds me too when I had jury duty. I discovered one of my fellow jurors was a fan so I brought a Super VF to show off. I was ready to get embarrassed at the x-ray machine but I got a quick pass.

This is Dennis, that dude who was runner up in the art contest, and I would like to thank you all for this year's Macross World Convention.

Good job on the staff - laid back, know how to have fun, while still organized and gets the job done.

And thank you very much for the opportunity to meet with fellow fans as well as Mari Iijima and Tommy Yune.

See y'all next year.

Had a great time even though I knew nobody, it was cool watching the 1st frontier movie, awsome seeing Mari perform and signing autographs. I wanted to bid on the frontier/blu ray-hybrid but I really only wanted it for the trail game ,$80 when I left, I hope I can get it cheaper later from eBay..who won the transforming contest? I had to leave by then, had alot of fun!

Wow, what an experience. Thanks all for putting this together, for the customs, the displays, the donations, the contests, this was a hell of a lot of fun. Mari was wonderful. I enjoy watching her perform. Clean up wasn't as bad as I thought, although being tired and kinda in a fog, I had such a hard time transforming my VF-27 Grace back to fighter.

We didnt' have an official photographer for this year's con so i'd like to ask anyone who came to the convention and took photos or videos of anything to please share with everyone! Post away and lets us know how you liked the con!

Thanks Bee, >EXO<, Maiden Japan, BigKid24, Save, modcineaste, all the volunteers from the UCLA Japanese Anime Club, and anyone I missed for organizing and putting on THE BEST MW Con I've ever been to! Only been to three, but still... The displays were absolutely amazing, categorized and everything! Thanks to everyone who came out and shared their collections! The programs, shirts, and banners rocked! Great events and prizes! And thanks to NightmareB4Macross for a yummy and impressive cake as usual!

Jason and I knocked out on the couch as soon as we got home. Will post pics later! :D

Wow you guys are awesome. So glad you had a great time. I missed it unfortunately. Maybe next year :)

Got a quick question....what was Tommy Yune doing there? I mean, doesn't work for Harmony Gold? Weren't you guys supposed to be beefing with him?
