For folks from out of town, this is easily one of the best things SoCal has to offer toy collectors of all sorts. Check out their website here We will meet at 12pm at the main entrance next to the Food vendors and make our way to the different vendors including some with Macross merchandise. We have members that are frequent F&S visitors that know some of the vendors very well so we'll make sure to introduce anyone who might be looking to purchase anything. ^_^ After Frank and Sons, everyone will have time to get lunch or hang out a bit before heading down to the Long Beach ARC for our annual MWcon Poker Tournament and games. More info on the poker tournament to come, but we will also have video games set up to play for anyone not playing in the tournament. In addition, there will be a big screen for watching episodes of Macross Frontier and other other Macross series and movies for the night. Day 2: MWcon Events Day/Exhibition Room/Special Guests As in traditional MacrossWorld Cons, Sunday is our main day where we will set up the main exhibition room with tons of Macross displays, customs, and stuff for sale. The exhibition room will open at 9am and we'll close around 5pm. The schedule for the day has not been finalized but we will have some fun events for everyone to participate in and as always, we'll have our customs contest featuring some of the best Macross Customs this site has ever seen that will be EXCLUSIVELY premiered at the con. This is definitely something you don't want to miss! We will also have a special performance of live Macross music by one of our own member's band!!!
