    the event was held over 3 days, launched on friday, had a gathering with activities on saturday, and closed on sunday. it was held at cineleisure, a shopping mall, over 2 areas:

    - ground floor, where they had sponsors booth, a stage, and a non stop screening of the movie promos.
    - lower ground, where there was a toy exhibition, plus a booth selling convention swag.

    piccah!

    ground floor:

    Holy Shit! Those TF legos look awesome. Makes me wonder where I put my crappy custom Lego Optimus Prime so I can smash it against the wall.

    You Malaysian fans seem to be having lots of fun. I remember going to the Singapore Convention Dotcon a few years back, and it was a much tamer and isolated event in comparison. It wasn't even a TF event but Toy collectibles in general. *sigh*

    i think we did better than expected. our previous gatherings were just done in dinky restaurants. i believe the success of this event was attributed to:

    - mike wong aka monkticon, the guy who took the lead for transmy has background in events management and helping run a toy store, contacts with hasbro
    - the trust and support of of sponsors, no problem with resources there
    - the fact that it was held in a public space with public participation
    - last but not least, the enthusiasm of transmy members (yay!). dudes were up til 2am before launch day to help organize display, contributed exhibits, then came in at 8am to do last minute prep for 10am opening
