MacrossWorld Convention 2014 Information Thread

Recommended Posts

Lunartoystore.com will be donating two super deformed SDF-1 to MWCon... one will be a raffle for general con goers (tickets will be sold at the convention.) And the second one will be the GRAND PRIZE for our annual Toy and Model Contest! That's right, the "Best Of Show" winner of MWCon's longest running contest will be this adorable, transformable toy that seemed to catch the eye of many Macross collectors. So make sure you've started that custom and you'll be bringing it Oct.4 to the Torrance Cultural Arts Center!

Hello,

I have never been to this con before, I was just wondering if its worth it for someone looking mostly to buy toys to get the early bird tickets. Are there usually a lot of vendors? a lot of toys to buy there?

Thanks ya'll!!

It is a pretty small con so there arent too many vendors.

Depends on what kind of toys you are looking for. If you are looking for Macross toys, I would expect the vendors to be stocking those.

Not a lot of vendors like a regular con, but I've never seen more Macross items for sale in one place. Toys, models, books... There's a video somewhere. Keep in mind that we're also expanding the vendors to their own room this year because of the demand on tables last year. We couldn't sell as much tables as we could have last year because of space.

Here's the video:

Are any of the staff going to the unnofficial after party/After-Con gathering? I know convention wraps up rather early in the evening so it gives us plenty of time to get cleaned up so we can get liquored up.

I'm sure it's wishful thinking for Tenjin or Ms. Iijima to make an appearance at said after party...

What hours are the convention? I might be going to UCLA that morning and that would be a lot more appealing if I could also attend the con afterward.

The con is from 11am-7pm. We're also trying to put together some very special last minute extra events around the con. Stay time for that!

Here's the vendor list:

Animebooks.com - They should have a variety of Macross books including Tenjin items. Last year they also had autograph boards.

Robotoyfest - Scott, the guy behind Robotoyfest and a ton of other conventions.

Shawn - Founding Father of MacrossWorld is selling off his extras. So you know he'll have good stuff.

Redstarrobot.com - Has a ton of vintage Macross

Surf City Paracord - Has a store on etsy and is a member here. Has custom paracord bracelets and other items.

Jennety - MW member - Had a great variety of recent Macross toys last year.

Those are the confirmed vendors. There are a couple of others pending so I'll add those when I'm certain.

There is... I'll have someone contact you to make sure it's not duplicates.
