MAC AUS CON 09' - BRISBANE! '.. it's official!&#39


Recommended Posts

Yeah sadly I'm in the states, there's no one in 2 months I could even get to Australia with money and all and that I've only been working my new job for just under 2 months so I don't think they'd be to hip on me taking off for even a couple of days. Though they know about this as I've told 'em I'm gonna be on a movie theater screen :p technically it's true!

Global, the guy who did it, I can't remember his real name I just call him Chrono, I told him I wanted it as Russian, something that's familiar to the fans of Robotech so they wouldn't feel so offended because I think Gloval (but I changed it back to Global) was Italian. But yes, I made him out to be russian and it worked out fine, and you get to hear a great deal of it during the second half of the film.

haha yeh i really dig the russian accent mate (wonder why :p ), great job! Yeah only 2 months in a job is pretty much a no go for a week holiday :p

We'll be taking the video cam along mate, i think it was Cowie who was going to be our video man, so there will be a ood show for you aknd the VA team! ^_~

I'm really happy this is possible getting it on the big screen for everyone!

Another interesting thought, is that Me and gtmishima got talking to the cool projectionist and he's going to see if we can get the main dud from the film festival

along to the con, i don't have enough info but i believ it's a foreign film festival (including anime).. who knows where this could lead to.

Had time to drop into the Backpackers place and they said a group booking would be 30 bucks or around that a head.

I know, backpackers bleh! So hopefully i won't be flat out next week an i can ask around other places too. :D

Looks like we got anoter positive booking, that takes it to a possible 3 Seats left count!

random idea: output the PSP MF tournament to a larger display for everyone to watch.

Yeah!, could you imagine it on the big cinema screen lol

I don't think that will happen tho, rather have two goups hanging around everyone cheering the two pilots on lol.

Pretty cool though, the game lets you take on 4 max human PSP pilot/users.

I'm really starting to get into MAF now, i love it! It's super smooth, the fighter mode whilst not perfect like a flight sim, can be used to max use in dogfights,

i've yet to use batroid to full use yet, rather cycle between fighter and gerwak and fighter again. It's kick ass this game!

nice poster! Everything looks good!

Wait till you see the displays EXO mate! :D

You and NMB4M will surely have something extraordinary for this years MW con, and i can't wait to see!

NMB4M has been very quite lately with the 2 seater custom kits, so i can image pure brilliance will be in order!

Neat, for a film festival that would be interesting to see how it would turn out, but the only thing that would get to me is the whole copyright issue...then again the copyright for the video is suppose to be in limbo so no one can really dub it, but distribution I think it owned by Bandai right now...I dunno it's weird.

Sort of one of those things to where I kind of feel like it being shown to like LOTS of people and film critics could come back and bite me in the ass. Although I'm saved by internet laws and I don't post my real name on anything, it probably wouldn't be difficult to ask around and find out who I am. FBI is good on crap like that. As long as people know it's a FAN production and it's in no way meant to be sold and marketed then I guess it's okay.

And with us the dvds are supplied by fans who have the best interest in spreading Macross fandom, and it is specifically a non-profit convention.

No one is making any money on this and we are only covering costs to get it up on the big screen, the true way to watch any legend anime, MACROSS!

ei guys,

i was thinking of having some SMS logo patches made ( and to be sold at the con). What colors do you prefer?

a. Yellow

b. Red

c. blue

d. green

so that I can estimate how many patches are to be made.

Cheers!

I'd love a red one!!! Got one of the Yellows, but a Red would be sweet to have to place on me shirt. How large would these be Johvic mate?

Ok I cracked the box on my Glaug yesterday afternoon. Now, to keep my butt in gear to get this sucker finished in time.

Matt what were the rules for the custom scheme again pls? Built OOB or are mods allowed?

Mark

Mods are allowed for sure, full customs allowed ( can be just paint scheme or full mod to the model) and out of the box with just minor mods. All models will be able to be entered as long as they are your own work and not commisions.
