    I am now unable to attend, last minute cancellation (I was going to start driving this afternoon!) Who would be willing to pick up my stuff, and/or any convention exclusives and ship them to me? I can wire money, so I'm not asking anyone to front me this stuff! Looking for someone willing to help, and thanks!

    I had everything ready to go this time but I have surgery in the morning and will be laid up for a little while because of it. Timing bites

    Does anyone know from past cons, does Master Collector take credit card (visa) for special con stuff they release at the con?

    Thanks,

    So how was the MOA tour? Any joe news? I know that the KB Toys that was there closed up 4-5 months ago, but any other finds? I think that this was the first con event...
    This is where my signature would be if I had something to say.

    richard was actually reading from the con brochure...i read thru it too and here are a few more details:

    steel brigade command 3 pack consisting of gung-ho, dragonsky, and steel brigade commander - $60 limited to 800

    steel brigade trooper 2 pack - $35 limited to 1000

    steel brigade skyhawk 3 pack (?? 3 skyhawks ??) - $35 limited to 500

    iron mech (??) - $28 limited to 750

    cobra hydrofoil - $75 limted to 750...from the desc. it sounds like we are getting the tiger hydrofoil w/an extra deck that is blue in color....maybe a use for exctra hydros from last year.

    grand total for extras: $233. i was under the impression that bringing the $$ needed to pick up the xtras last year would leave you w/some change....guess that didn't quite pan out.

    i also threw up some crappy pics of richards stuff here:

    now, go spread the word!

    more info as it becomes available.

    also any yojoers staying at the ramada want to get together at around 4:30PM or so in the lobby for the walk to the marriott to register? and how about a meet and greet in the hotel bar/lobby late friday after everyone is registered and settled in?

    yeah, i would bet the hydro was made at the same time as the other one to bring down the price.... because the blue really doesnt fit in with the whole IG theme ...unless it is a joe vehicle.

    i was hoping for a condor....but the skyhawks are going to be nice

    I am disappointed with the list of exclusives...why oh why do we need another Hydrofoil? How does it fit the theme? I was really really hoping for an all black Condor.wouldnt that have made more sense with the Iron Anvils?...disappointed with the price too..wasnt last years only 60?? The AGP was not a surprise either..I do like the transluscent wings however. 3 Sky Hawks...been a while since we've seen that...actually should be good depending on the paint scheme. The Iron Mech is probably a repainted Defense Mech...Does anyone know how to get a parachute drop figure? (besides attending?) and will the figures be carded or poly bagged?
