    Retro Con 2013

    [​IMG]

    With last years Retro Con being a huge success..We just had to do again!

    This year we've added a panel room, an extra dealers room. A Friday night before party and have obtained our first official guest! Neil Ross!

    [​IMG]

    Neil Ross has worked on countless cartoons throughout the eighties and nineties! To name a few..he’s worked on: Transformers, G.I. Joe, Voltron, Pac-Man (the 1982 cartoon), Rambo: The Force of Freedom, Rock ‘n’ Wrestling, Bionic Six and InHumanoids! Only naming a few of course!

    We've got lots more planned, so stay tuned and for those that would like to buy your dealers table, you can now do so..We've sold 20 plus so far.. So jump in and get your tables while they last! [Last year we sold out with fans still wanting to buy!] Buy Tables!

    Also you can now buy your Retro Con advance tickets! Only those that buy their tickets in advance are invited to the Retro Con before party! Buy Tickets!

    Damn I hope I can make it this year, I was so close last year if it weren't for a last minute scheduling conflict.

    Don’t Cross the Streams! Win a Proton Pack at Retro Con!!

    Let’s heat ‘em up! Our big raffle prize for Retro Con 2013 is going to be an unlicensed nuclear accelerator and particle thrower, aka a Ghostbusters proton pack! You can’t buy this in any store, it will be custom made by three of our friends that are huge Ghostbusters fans and experienced propmakers. The pack will not have sound, but will feature full sequencing lights and include everything you need to wear it! The base shell will be made of heavy-duty fiberglass, with the rest being created with a mix of metal, resin, styrene, and more. The pack has not been made yet, but will look very much like the pack shown (which utilizes the same base shell). It will be full scale and highly accurate to its movie counterpart. We’re super excited to have this as part of our show!!

    We value the pack at $800. We are allowing attendees to buy extra raffle tickets for this item at the show for $1 each. These extra tickets will be for the proton pack drawing alone and NOT for the rest of our raffle prizes. And to be clear, anyone that buys a ticket to the show also gets one ticket good for a chance at ALL of our raffle prizes, including the proton pack. So good luck to everyone!!​

    More Door Prizes To Come!
