    Is anyone going to be attending MegaCon? I know it's not primarily a transformer Con, but it is indeed pretty spiffy.

    MechaCon

    On the weekend of August 26-28, 2005, the heart of Louisiana's Cajun country welcomes its first ever Asian Cultural Expo and Anime Convention. Aside from already confirming Tiffany Grant (Asuka from Neon Genesis Evangelion), Alec Willows (Tarantulas) from Beast Wars and Doug Smith (Kintarou Oe) from Golden Boy, we're looking into even more anime and TF guests, so please keep checking the website for updates.


    Located just a mile from the Lafayette Regional Airport, along the banks of the serene Vermilion Bayou in the heart of Acadiana, the Hilton Lafayette & Towers, Acadiana's premier full-service hotel and conference center, will be host to this unique event.

    On August 26-28, 2005, MechaCon will offer anime fans of Louisiana and neighboring states a chance to gather in a warm and friendly setting to learn more about the cultures of eastern Asia and to share in the experience that is the anime fan culture. Easily accessible and conveniently located in Lafayette (along the I-10 corridor between New Orleans and Houston), MechaCon welcomes anime fans and Asian cultural enthusiasts across the south to join us for this special inaugural weekend.

    With an informative website as well as pre-registration and MechaCon room block hotel booking information forthcoming, we welcome you to participate in discussions here at the MechaCon forums, in an effort to make this convention better suited to what you, the attendees, want.

    All that being said, we heartily welcome you to peruse the MechaCon website and we hope you'll make plans to join us!

    Help spread the word about MechaCon by contacting all your friends and fellow con-goers and directing them to the MechaCon website. With your help, MechaCon promises to be a great Anime/Transformers convention experience.

    Bringing Transformers home to anime on August 26th - 28th, 2005...
