    Re: Voltron

    I bet that by the time the first reviews start coming in and/or when people receive their figures, then they will be very happy they got the subscription.

    I'm still unsure whether passing on the sub was a good idea or not, although I know that if I'm wowed by the reviews of the Red Lion in January/February, then I'll be cursing each and every month that I'm logging into mattycollector.com trying to obtain a critical piece of Voltron. After all, missing out on a single MOTUC figure isn't too bad. Having a Voltron with a missing arm or leg would be pretty darn devastating!

    Comic-Con comes to Australia

    And it is starting in my hometown;

    Oz Comic-Con comes to South Australia in 2012


    HOLY dress-ups, Batman! Adelaide has been chosen to host the Down Under debut of Oz Comic-Con next year.

    The internationally recognised comic-book convention is expected to draw about 10,000 people, with potential to grow beyond 20,000 in future years.

    Organisers expect many of these people to come dressed up as their favourite characters, such as The Phantom, Superman or Wonder Woman. Tourism Minister Gail Gago said original Comic-Con event, in San Diego, was the biggest convention of any type in the US and the fourth largest of its kind in the world.

    "The San Diego convention started with 300 people in 1970 and last year attendance exceeded 130,000," Ms Gago said.

    "This is a good example of South Australia tapping into a niche market to deliver broad economic benefits."

    Oz Comic-Con will be held on Saturday, March 31, and Sunday, April 1, in the Goyder Pavilion at the Adelaide Showgrounds. The aim is to make it an annual event.

    Organisers predict more than 100 exhibitors will attend from interstate.

    More than 1000 fans will travel here from overseas and interstate, combining with local visitors to deliver a tourism bonanza estimated at more than $2 million.

    Oz Comic-Con Adelaide will feature film and TV stars such as Jewel Staite (Firefly, Serenity, Stargate Atlantis), Teryl Rothery (Stargate SGI), Nicola Scott (Teen Titans, Birds of Prey, JSA, Secret Six) and Stewart McKenny (Super Friends, Star Wars: Clone Wars Adventures), with more expected to be announced.

    Aspiring South Australian comic creators will be able to submit their work for professional review. Peter Spandrio of Adelaide Comics Centre in Rundle Mall predicted the convention would be a great success. He co-owns the comic-book store with Michael Baulderstone, who made headlines last year when - while dressed as Spider-Man - foiled a would-be thief in the shop, while other people dressed as Jedi Knights, the Flash and other superheroes looked on during the store's annual free comic-book dress-up day.

    "This will be absolutely great for Adelaide," Mr Spandrio said.

    "There is huge interest in this sort of thing and people get into the spirit of it by dressing up just like they do for our free comic-book day."

    I know it is not going to be SDCC epic, hell it probably won't be big at all, but it has the potential to be something which is more than nothing

    Apparently, Armegeddon did pretty well here in Adelaide earlier this year. I am not expecting anything ground breaking at OZCC but I will certainly be keeping an eye on any further developments.

    I have asked Toyguru if they could make Temple of Darkness Sorceress available to purchase at the event but I doubt anything will come of it.

    The Red Lion is $35 and the pilot Lance is $15... so ...$50 (not including shipping costs) Double damn it.

    It's gonna be a tough one on the wallet to say the least

    I'm gonna cop flak (so be it) but i think the Star Sisters should be moved again. Too much in a short space of time within different franchises and they wonder why not as many subs were sold!

    I wouldn't mind if the Star Sisters were moved. Preferably to 2017.

    They can replace them with a three-pack of Glimmer, Queen Angella and Kowl.

    ALthough I don't mind the Star Sisters, it was indeed a silly idea to have an expensive 3-pack composed of obscure characters before getting the main ones like Glimmer, Angela, Castaspella and so on.

    The Star Sisters would have worked better as a con exclusive or a 'late in the line' set after we had gotten the main Pop cast...oh well..

    Anyways, has anyone received the Black Friday sales stuff? The Swiftwind orders arrived really quick and I am hoping to receive he Black Friday stuff this week as that order also contains a Christmas gift.

    I haven't received my Black Friday order. I'm thinking it is likely to arrive as a late Christmas present, but I would be happy to be proven wrong in this instance.

    This is the way i feel... I don't hate the Star Sisters but i really really feel that the SS should have been an SDCC exclusive along with whatever else. I too would have preferred other core characters from the PoP world before the SS. It'd be sad if we did have to wait till 2013 or later to get even a couple of those characters.

    Not that its important but i wonder where the support for the SS came from for them to 'make it'? The voices seem to be louder for Illumina than the SS. Again, i'm not hating on any figures but rather just curious...

    Nah not yet, i hope i jinx myself when i say this but i've a feeling we won't see them till after Christmas/New Year...

    I want my Goddess! Mo-Larr and Palace Guards less so but nevertheless LoL.

    The bright green would be in keeping with the Christmas spirit. Especially if wearing King Grayskull V2.0's red and white cape.

    Not sure yet. But in my head, just to make a story of it, back in the preternia days he was a bit of a savage and hadn't grown to full maturity. So I think i'll go for the angry head. But then it may end up looking crap and I change my mind entirely. I'll post some picks when it is all completed!

    Although if I ever get a flocked ears Mossman I'm not sure how I'll display all three... (and just quietly, that is my biggest issue with this line right now, so I'm pretty ***** happy)

    Sweet! Looking forward to the pics

    Come to think of it, i might do a flocked Panthor now that he'll be available throughout the year!

    That's a great idea Frank. There is a little model train place near my work where I can get flock from...Purple may be an issue though. I just hope there is a month next year where there is just 1 figure so I can afford one.

    Cheers!

    There's a place like that near me too! I'll have to check it out - i'll let you know what happens.

    Yeah, me too. It's looking likely that it might be after the first three months or so that i'll look into doing it. Having a Voltron sub on top of MotUC makes it a little difficult LoL.
