Oh that sucks! We'll have small gatherings around the con. Maybe you can make it to one of those, specially if you volunteer to help out before?

Done! I couldn't wait for my wife to let me know if she was going, so it's me and my 13 year old nephew. I just couldn't hold out much longer. Tenjin is my hero!

Might have to go to this one . If I do go I'm not sure what items I can bring to get signed. Suggestions?

All I can say is if you plan on getting his autograph, bring two Tenjin related items or Macross items that's not specific to another artist. Like getting your Imai Regult with Takani art would probably be too weird. No bootlegs, safe bet would be to look for that big west sticker if it's Macross. You guys know what I'm talking about... ;)

Seriously though? Tenjin! I think we need to extend the con a few hours!

I think i will be attending this year. If I make it down there. I do intend to win the 1/55 transforming contest and will bring a couple to use for the contest. Ill probably bring some macross items to sell too. Do I need a booth for that or just bring stuff?

@UN Spacy. If I go I will probably drive my 1997 honda civic (crossing fingers the whole time).

How about just renting a van and carpooling down with other Bay area guys, split the cost all around and it'll be immense savings.

In order to sell anything at the con this year, you will have to purchase a vendor booth at $50 per table. With the increased cost for venue and higher attendee expectancy, we had to charge for vendors this year. you should have have some good foot traffic for your table. email macrossworldconvention@gmail.com for more info or questions.

Thanks KiriK! I will email with more questions.

Thinking about getting the 30th anniversary VF-1J just so that I can have Tenjin and Mari sign it. That would be a cool collectors item.

It's a 6ft table with 2 chairs, so you can split the table with a friend if you don't have enough items to sell by yourself.

We're having another T-shirt fundraiser to help with some of the additional cost of having Tenjin attend and other exciting things!

Please support the con by helping purchase this awesome t-shirt! You can order through the following link on the main website:

http://www.macrossworld.com/5255/macrossworld-convention-2013-t-shirt-fundraiser-part-2/#more-5255

Rest assured, we are using a new vendor that promises to have the shirt ready BEFORE October 5th for anyone to pick up at the con. See order form for details and options on shipping or pick up at the convention.

Hello to everyone here on MacrossWorld. I grew up with the original series as a kid back home in Asia and have been to several anime cons but never even knew there was a Macross-only convention! Even my fellow long-time otaku here in Arizona didn't know until we saw it on ANN :)

Now I'm all excited and plan on going as long as my schedule allows. Great to see an active community of fellow Macross fans out there :D

Also, I wanted to ask if the tables for selling stuff is just for selling or trading official Macross items or is fanart allowed? I used to do Artist Alley and did a couple of Macross Frontier pieces before I stopped. If fanart is okay, would anyone here be interested in buying some prints? My two Frontier pieces are below. I know I'm not the greatest artist so I'm trying to gauge interest before commiting to paying for a table. And apologies if the huge image size is a bother - I couldn't get it to post smaller :(

Macross is my first love in anime so I really put a lot of effort into my Macross pieces but hardly anyone ever bought them in AA - just other shows that are more well-known here in the US - so if anyone likes them it'd be great to finally find some people who would like them for the series they're based on.
