    Grayskull-Convention 2011 - the ULTIMATE fan-event in Germany!

    This year the biggest German MOTU fan-convention takes place near Frankfurt/Main, and we want YOU to be a part of it. Lots of spectacular program, awesome international guest-stars and hundreds of Fans from all over the world will make this an unforgettable weekend.



    "Since the beginning of the first convention in the year 2001 a lot of things have happened. Fans came and went, 200x came and went, rumors about a new live action movie came, went, came back, involved Brad Pitt, went again and so on... Stactions came and went and for more than two years now brand new MOTUC actionfigures pop up every month.
    But what remained all the time was the passion and love we Fans share for MOTU, that twice a year German fans celebrate together on various locations throughout Germany for 10 years now."


    This year, in the light of the 30th anniversary of Masters of the Universe, we are celebrating big time!
    From 2nd to 4th of September fans come together for a weekend loaded with everything MOTU at the “Waldschule” in Bad Soden-Salmuenster, app. half an hours drive from the Frankfurt international airport. And for the first time ever, not only German speaking fans are invited to attend, but every Fan worldwide.

    With support from Mattel, Studio 100 Media and many more, and in cooperation with all the major German MOTU-fansites as well as he-man.org, the biggest international MOTU Fansite, we are looking forward to Guest stars, stageshows, workshops, exhibitions, cosplay, contests, raffles, world premieres and more.

    Leave it to the Germans to show America how it's done(I'm proud to say I'm over half German). If I had the money or spoke German(my late grandmother was a German immigrant but I never learned any), I'd love to go to this. Having Emiliano & James as guests makes me even more eager. It also makes me wonder why the country of MOTU's origin was so slow to the convention game when Germany has been doing it for a decade. They even have Mattel's support.

    I hope you guys have a great con! Maybe I might actually make it out to the country of my ancestors one day for the con myself.
    LONG LIVE LOU SCHEIMER!!!

    JOIN THE GROUP...

    FILMATION FANS FOREVER!!!

    SO AWESOME THAT YOU GUYS ARE DOING THIS!!! We've always wanted to visit nearly EVERYWHERE overseas, we'll definitely have to plan our trip someday to include a stop at the Grayskull Con.

    So, is anyone there gonna be doing a live feed to show-up everyone here in America? Lol. Would be cool to see everything live.

    Looking forward to hearing about everyone's experiences!

    Fan-Fiction Contest

    Within the next few weeks we will compile detailed information sheets about the planned program, including some polls, to keep you all informed what to expect on the convention and to give you the chance to decide certain aspects.

    Since the convention will be held in Germany, obviously several things planned will be in the German language. So the first detailed info this week will be for something German:

    Fan-Fiction Contest

    What it´s all about:
    Lately, the "Eternian Post" published an article about a recent event in Eternos. This article featured 8 characters (see bottom)
    Your task is to write a story about ONE of those eight characters, after he or she read the article and tries to recall the events that really happened, as the reporter seems to have gotten everything wrong and mixed up.

    How to participate:
    Obviously, the contest is limited to 8 contestants. If you want to participate, please write an email including which character you´d like to chose to aperissa@galaxydinner.org (subject: Grayskull Con - Fanfiction Contest).
    Please state your three favorite characters, so we have a little scope in allocating the characters, as they will be allocated on a first come, first serve basis.
    After all the characters are taken, the news article along with the confirmation about your character choice and participation, along with further infos will be send via E-Mail.

    The rules:
    • The contest is limited to those attending the Convention
    • Language to participate is German
    • Text shall not be longer than app. 10 minutes (to check the length of your text, count the letters and divide by 900 - you´ll have the approximate reading time)


    The prizes:
    - All 8 stories and the original news article from the "Eternian Post" will be read live on stage by a professional German voice actor.
    - Afterwards the audience may vote the best story by casting a ballot and the winning author will be given his prize.
    - Furthermore, we will randomly pick a ballot and the voter wins a cool prize, too!

    The characters:
    - King Randor → taken
    - Adam / He-Man
    - Teela
    - Man-At-Arms
    - Orko → taken
    - Cringer
    - Zoar
    - Evil Lyn → taken

    Any questions left? Please let us know!

    We might be doing a live feed on some things. But what we will definetly do is making tons of photos and videos and post them online after the convention.

    KalesDad, if you are planning a trip overseas and want to include the Grayskull Convention, you should start planning soon Although we had smaller conventions for the past 10 years now, we just can´t tell if this event will be a big enough success to justify another huge event next year.

    Exhibition

    He-Fans and She-Ravers,

    as you can see, we are planning a HUGE exhibition of all things MOTU. Toys, unique pieces, artwork, prototypes, collectibles and lots of background information. We already managed to compile a great list of things for display, but we know: "There can be more!" And thus we are offering YOU the chance to participate.
    Do you have rare collectibles, pieces of art, unique things or anything you feel worthy to share with other fans? Then this is your chance! Please get in contact with me via he-man.org PM or Email (dj_forceman@yahoo.de), so we can work things out from there on.
    To ensure the safety of all pieces on display, the exhibition room will be locked during off-times and constantly watched over by members of the convention team.

    You´ve got no idea what you might expect on display, or what we are looking for to display on the convention? Here are some examples:


    Again, we are looking forward to seeing you on the convention!
    Until then,
    your Grayskull-Con Team

    We just have finalized our first poster:



    Important Notification:

    We have sold almost all our "tickets including accommodation and catering on location".
    If you´re still on the fence, now it´s the time to decide.
    Once those tickets sold out, you need to manage your own catering and accommodation, e.g. in a nearby hotel.

    Attention MOTUC customizers!

    We´ll be offering a MOTUC part swap at the convention.
    Here are the (pretty basic) rules:

    1. Boil and pop your custom fodder figures. Divide the parts into feet, lowe legs, upper legs, torso, shoudlers, upper arm, lower arm, hands and head.
    2. Bring all these parts to the convention
    3. We will have a big box filled with various parts from various MOTUC figures.
    4. For each part you want to take out the box, you need to put one of your own parts into it. Note: 2 Hands and 2 Feet count as 1 item.
    5. Torsos can only be swapped with other torsos.
    6. Your parts should be in good condition. No broken parts allowed!


    We can always extend the part swap with weapons and accessories, if there is enough demand for it.

    We hope you´ll find the parts needed for your next custom and are looking forward to seeing you part-swapping at the convention!

    Grayskull Convention coverage 2 Sep - 4 Sep

    I just came back from the convention.
    I thought it would be nice to share my pics and perhaps of others in 1 thread
    Some pics taken with my Ipad. There was much more, a great collection to see.

    The highlights for me were:

    They already had the power and honor V1 on show and it looks great!


    real size weapon rack that my son Adam loves:

    At summer camp with Emiliano Here he is drawing a Trap Jaw for grazellka:



    It was a honour to be with Emiliano and James in such a familiar environment.
    Those two were super nice and Emiliano was drawing like a Berserker!
