Hello MW,

Sorry to everyone who was expecting to have a convention in 2011, but I can assure you that it was worth the wait. Stay tuned to this thread for exciting updates on this year's MW Con!

Awesome! I had a great time at the last one & would love to make this one if possible. I enjoyed the customs, on-the-spot drawing, & fanart contests. Great news, indeed! Go, Bee, go!!! :)

Those Concept Cube classes look neat too, though I'd have to sell a few Yamato's... :(

If the date coincides with a visit to my in-laws it'd make a great excuse for ducking out for a while.

Will anyone be making anything special for this event? Something similar to SDCC exclusives but for MW Con.

No. Since your a drummer you have to dress up as veffidas. There is a basara already. Or you can be Ray or Mylene.

Note to self, change avatar to something manly so Kicker doesn't pick on me because I don't want to have to cry in a dark bathroom in the Concept Cube building.

So, will people be able to sell anything? If we have any raffles, or anything like that, I may have something to donate this year. Also hoping I can have at least the legs of the 1/60 VA-3 done by then.

Sweet! Ummm, who's Tony?

He's the big husky Asian man that appears to be the owner of this school.

I'm quite impress with this location to host MW 2012! I hope its not around SDCC 2012 in July tho. But I'm defintely down and hope to see more vendors as well as custom toys as well as MW members collection.

They've had "special guests" drummers and players before, so they might be able to have one come up, that is, if they end up playing.

"Special" would definitely be the appropriate adjective.

Hope you're not referring to short bus special. I doubt you are, but shoot me a pm.

Nor Cal has a MW club up there too. Why not gather up and split the gas bill and come down with the homies!?
