MacrossWorld Convention 2013 Information Thread

Recommended Posts

Not at all. My social life sucks.

In Benson13's defense if you don't live in Southern Cali its pretty rare to meet other Macross Fans.

I am the only Macross fan in Tucson AZ. At least that has been on these boards since 2000...

We used to have a lot more active users in the Bay

Area. That number has significantly decreased in the last few years.

We're still here though "real life" is keeping us busy! :( I suspect there might be more of us now we so can try the mini get-togethers when there's something significant! Hope to see everyone in October!

Is there going to be a buy and sell section? It'll be fun and I have Macross stuff to sell. Newcomers and kids might be happy to bring some Macross toys home.

Looks like I'll be keeping my perfect record of not being able to attend. :( If there are any fans around the DC area,let me know. There certainly are none I work around. I even have a Valk model on my desk - with lots of questions, and even people calling it a toy (I forgive them for that). But yeah, I know what Benson's talking about. - MT

Ach- if only I lived out in California or this were closer. I'd be there in a heartbeat. This is probably the only con that would get the VF-X pilot cosplay I'm trying to put together :p

I forgot to put my screen name down during the paypal donation. Oh well, they'll figure it out since my email and screen name are the same.

I might donate a few Macross model kits to whoever wants them. :D Need to free up some space at home.

Hey Guys

I'm happy to announce that we'll have The Lobos Truck on site selling their awesome food so you'll never have to be too far from the action and events of MWCon (expect announcements soon as to why you'll want to stick around). They'll be available from 12pm to 4pm.

Check out their website and menu at: http://www.thelobostruck.com/#

And check out their reviews on yelp: http://www.yelp.com/biz/the-lobos-truck-los-angeles

I'm going to have to go and check this out. I've been in SoCal all my life and I've never been. I've gone to the shrine and frank an sons just never to a macross only con. What can I expect? I'm looking forward to meeting Mari. Will she be there everyday of the con or certain days?

The con is a one day event... we use to do two, but with the bigger venue this year, we should be able to contain everything in one day. MacrossWorld Con isn't like other cons. It's not big like AX, it's only one line of shows after all. It's not a dealers room like F&S, though we'll have more room for dealers this year. It's more of an intimate type get together. Even though it's gotten way bigger than when we started out, I think this is still how new people describe it... It's part stage show, part toys and model and private collection displays, part contests and game show and one giant meet and greet for macross and other anime fans...
