    "FTWCon! A convention dedicated to the PhoComs aired on the TFW2005 Entertainment Channel! Visit panels from your favorite series, meet some of your favorite characters! Ask questions at QnAs! See exclusive previews of upcoming releases! Meet fellow fans! All of this and more at the Funny Transformers World Convention!

    In honor of the summer convention season (Such as Botcon, TFcon and the infamous SDCC)...would anyone feel like doing a large convention photo-comic (the thread could be entitled "FTWCon 2011" or whatever it ends up being called)?

    As many of us who want to be involved in could be involved. We could do panels, meet and greets, convention antics, etc. And we could organize schedules, and such.

    It'd be cool, we could each film our own panels, and post them as pertaining to the schedule. Of course, group antics would require planning (someone having the specific figures, etc.) but it could be done.


    Would any of you want to do this?

    Just a general idea. They would be much longer of course.

    I think this would be cool, and like real conventions, could serve as advertisement for the less frequented comics.

    I'm so game for this. However, I think we should actually schedule days that people post their panels, so that we can narrow it down into an "event" of sorts. We could have specific panels on certain days, and people could ask questions for Q&A prior to the day of the panel so the author could answer them before they post?

    I'd just like to see what the "turnout" for an event like this would be. I'm actually very excited for this and I definitely want to participate. However, what kind of group antics do the people want to see...?

    Are you looking for a set number of people to join up? Because we've got a pretty good group, here.

    If I'm not mistaken, he said in the FFC Social Group: no limit on participants; essentially "the more, the merrier.".

    I could get behind this. My comic is not dead, it merely slumbers.

    Yeah, what CI said...lol

    I think it's a great idea and it might spur some of us to try to not let the summer drag our production to a stand still (I'm pointing the finger solely at myself on that, lol). It's a good counterpart to the funnies awards and can help introduce new readers to different comics.

    Realistically tho, I think the main conflict here is visual continuity...if person A is shooting with a 50 billion mega pixel camera and the next person is using a 64bit cell phone, it's gonna get kinda ugly. (Random thought, put each bot panelist on a monitor like they are having a video conference or something...sorry it's late and my brain went to sleep a couple hours ago)

    I still wanna see this happen and would like to be a part. I'd like to see a panel of the commercials/trailers of people's comics and maybe even premier a couple new ones (hint hint wink wink...COUGH*TransformingtheUnknow has a trailer coming soon*COUGH)

    So how far out are we thinking here before the TFW2005 Funnies ComicCon starts???
