    Hey there guys! Maximus Prime here and I had a great idea to hold a "Mini-Con" so to speak here in the South East Michigan area. I live in Allen Park which is about 15 minutes south of Detroit. I have a hardware store in Allen Park which is where I want to have this little get together at, lots of room and whatnot.

    People could bring figures to sell and trade or customs to be photographed or just be admired. I will selling prints and I know others that can sell sketches and whatnot as well.

    There would be door prizes and just a fun time to hang out with my fellow Michiganders. There are a few guys I have met from Michigan on here so I am hoping more people will come out and we can make this awesome!


    Let me know if you guys are interested and if you guys have any ideas you can definitely throw them my way.

    As for a date I am hoping to do this on

    SATURDAY OCTOBER 23rd

    I think I could be down with that. I've got a few Customs I'd love to display. don't have much in the selling department, but I'm sure I could find something in the buy department.

    *cough* Extra Energon Starscream Weapons *cough*

    I can try and attend. I'll see if I can get my brother to come with me, since I've never drove to Allen Park before, if not then I can see if I can catch a ride with someone else.

    I have some figures that I've been meaning to sell, so if I can manage to go, I'll be sure to bring them and hopefully find them all new homes.

    Well I hope more people are interested in meeting up for this "Mini-Con" I have planned. There will be door prizes and people can bring their custom figures they have made and if we have enough entrants we can have a contest for that as well.

    I will be selling exclusive 8x10 prints of an avatar I have made exclusive. I will also be selling other 8x10 prints of other popular avatars I have made as well.

    Let me know if you guys are interested and any other ideas you guys might have.

    Sorry for the delay but I got engaged so I have been really busy so I will reschedule the "MiniCon" for a later date, most likely in January.

    with the extra time it will be great and I hope for a great turnout!

    Hopefully, it still happens. Take care of your business, get that all settled, and then give us a heads up for the new date :)

    You got engaged? Congrats!

    No biggie about having to reschedule Mini-Con. I'm sure that whatever date you end up holding the con, I should be able to attend.
