    I-Con is a sci-fi convention. I-Con 2007 will be at it's usual place Stony Brook University on Long Island. This year the dates for it are Friday, March 23 - Sunday, March 25. Membership sales have started this year already! If you want tell me where you are located and I can give you the nearest comic shop to get your memberships at. Get them before March 1st and they are like half off!!

    Last year at I-Con there was a Transformers marathon where they played all the G1 eps 1-98 and the movie I think. And the dealers have TF stuff from Japan and USA mostly. It is good stuff. I will be there definitely in my Hot Rod/Rodimus costume!! :D 

    So anyone want to meet up?! Anyone planning on going?

    For people in the City(NYC) the LIRR Port Jeff train stops at Stony Brook University! but remember that is the Port Jefferson train not the Port Washington!


    EDIT: here's the website forgot to add it http://www.iconsf.org/

    yup there are one day passes. I would suggest you get tickets somewhere closer to where you work. That is if you still work in Huntington was it? Because all the places are in Nassau or Suffolk. I just realized that :p  but if you can't get early membership you can always buy them at the door at the gym in Stony Brook.

    Info about the convention such as guests and list of dealers can be found here
    http://www.iconsf.org/

    EDIT: I just realized there is a list of places on that site under "membership" where you can get early memberships.

    I used to go to I-cons when I was more into Star Trek. The guys used to do AWSOME Sci-fi LARPS there (the funky architeture lends it self well to other worldly locals) They have really good anime panels and a pretty good dealer room.

    Plus they often get good guests.

    I haven't done a con in a few years,,, I think I might go to this one.

    Recomended :thumb

    Are they good for TFers? I have to reconsider. I might be on spring break during that time. Are there's a lot of vendors?

    I bought my 3 day membership today!! But I will probably only be there for 2 days as I think I have an equestrian team show on the Sunday. But I hope to see some of you guys/gals there.

    I went to about half a dozen or so I-Cons starting in 1989, back when it was in only 2 buildings, and the only SF on the air were Star Trek TNG (then in season 3) and Quantum Leap . Haven't been able to go since I got a job and married. Maybe one day I'll get back. In the meantime, have some fun for me.

    Would there be dealers with items such as “Brave Fortress Maximus”? If so, what would be the range for Maximus?

    A list of dealers can be found on the website http://www.iconsf.org you can search each individual website for a brave maximus if you want. Though some of the dealers don't have websites.
