    Warning! MASSIVE Update ahead!



    Who doesn´t love to win something?
    At Grayskull Convention, you´ll have LOTS of opportunities to win cool stuff! More than THREE-HUN-DRED prizes are waiting for their lucky winners!

    First, I´d like to tease you all with mentioning some of the items you can win in the huge raffle or at various other occasions:

    MOTUC Tytus, MOTUC Count Marzo, MOTUC Shadow Beast, MOTUC Mo-Lar vs. Skeletor, MOTUC Roboto and - fasten your seatbelts, guys! - MOTUC LEECH! 2 weeks before he actually goes on sale at mattycollector.com! If this isn´t pure awesomeness, then we don´t know!
    Also, we´ve got several copies of the brandnew Mini-Comic "The Legend begins" to be won!

    Here´s a rough breakdown of events, contests and raffles where you can win some of those awesome prizes!

    First: Fan-Fiction Contest
    The entries to this contest have already been sent in and all participants have already won. Their stories are being read by none other than the brilliant Engelbert von Nordhausen, who was the German voice of Frank "Skeletor" Langella in the 1987 live-action movie. Each participant receives a CD with a recording of this event. Furthermore, the audience will vote on the best story and this story wins a surprise package plus a copy of the mini-comic "The Legend begins!"
    AND, we will randomly draw three lucky persons from all the votes who will win a copy of this mini-comic, too!

    Next: Fan-Art Contest
    None other than Emiliano Santalucia will pick the participants to his drawing-workshop from all entries to the Fan-Art Contest. In addition, the best fan-art shown at the Convention will be honored with a copy of the mini-comic "The Legend begins!"

    Next: Cosplay-Contest
    Step on the stage and show the audience your awesome costume in our cosplay-fashion-show! The winner will receive a surprise package AND a voucher for www.mycostumes.de - your internet source for everything cosplay!

    Next: Speed Painting Contest
    One hour isn´t that long, especially when painting a miniature. Every contestant will not only get to keep his "The Grey King" miniature (one of our con-exclusive items!), but the best speed-painter will receive an extremely limited special version of the Grey King: the translucent-blue "The SPIRIT of the Grey King" figure! This version can only be won in the speed painting contest, so you´d better apply for the contest soon, as we´ve got only 10 seats!

    Last but not least: Eternian Scoundrel!
    This impro-comedy show is guaranteed to make fun - at least of the participants. But your effort will be honored. The winner of Eternian Scoundrel (the "Skeletor-Version" of American Idol, if you haven´t guessed it) receives a Mint in Box "Mo-Lar vs. Skeletor" set.



    Now isn´t that something?
    But if contests and raffles are too boring for you, maybe you´ll like some of our events and actions:

    MOTUC Part-Swap:
    Wanna start customizing MOTUC figures? Need a certain body part but don´t wanna spent 20 dollar just for this part?
    Boil and Pop your MOTUC figures and bring those parts to the convention to swap them with the parts offered by Grayskull Convention or other fans. The more participants, the better the chances to find exactly the parts you are looking for!

    Bring and Buy fleamarket:
    Tired of your old toys, comics, DVDs or other merchandise? Bring it to the convention and have the Grayskull Con team sell it on your behalf, while you get to enjoy the program!
    Please note: We are keeping 10% of the income for this service!

    Swordfighting workshop:
    Join our swordmaster and let him train you in the arts of swordfighting.
    Please note: We are offering and allowing LARP-swords ONLY! You are invited to bring your own LARP weapons, but please keep your stainless steel swords at home!

    Custom-Workshop:
    He-Fans TIN and Odiphus are being joined by the lovely girls of www.modelkit-universe.de to introduce you to customizing and modelkit building. They will also help and offer their assistance in repairing broken NECA busts and statues or swap reversed MOTUC shoulders.

    Become a part of the sequel of the MOTU fanfilm Wizard of Stone Mountain - The Fountain of Life!
    Step by the "WOSM" greenscreen in your best MOTU costume and be filmed for a scene in the upcoming film!




    That´s it for today, folks. If you are finally convinced to come to Grayskull Con, please email me at dj_forceman@yahoo.de with your name, address, nickname and the desired ticket.

    Tickets available are:
    Full Ticket: 22 Euros
    Daily Tickets:
    Friday: 6 Euros
    Saturday: 12 Euros
    Sunday: 4 Euros

    Good Journey, my friends!

    Thanks for the kinds words, Mr. Shokoti! If any of the items won´t sell out, we will be offering them online after the Convention.


    Oh hey, UPDATE TIME! :-)

    We´ve still got TEN of the Extended Goodie Bags for sale! These goodie bags include various MOTU stuff. What exactly remains to be discovered, but it might include a mix of toys, merchandise, comics and whatnot. The price is 10 Euros, and the contents exceed the price by far!

    Extended Goodie Bags are only available to those who ordered a regular goodie bag with their ticket. If you want one, drop me a line at dj_forceman@yahoo.de
    First come - first serve!

    .


    Another quick update!

    After collecting the "Grey Kings" from customs, we are finally ready to tell you the prices for our 3 con-exclusives!

    Dungeon Diorama Base will cost 18 Euros, The Grey King 16 Euros (and therefore the attendance fee for the speed painting contest) and the King of Castle Grayskull Artprint is 10 Euros.

    There are still plenty of posters available, but almost all the Dungeon Diorama Bases have been preordered and way over half of the Grey King miniatures have been preordered as well. So if you plan to get any of these con-exclusives, you´d better hurry up and pre-order yours today!



    And: Only 7 of the extended Goodie Bags remain! Grab ´em while you can!

    To ensure both Seller and Buyer will have the most possible fun at the Bring and Buy Fleamarket (and organizing it will be as smooth as possible), here are some basic rules to follow:

    • Seller is responsible for marking his items with correct prices.
    • Deliver your items at the Con-Info booth.
    • Together with a Con-Helper, a list will be made including all items and prices of each seller.
    • Please try not to bring more than 15 different packages. Contents of packages are up to the seller (e.g. 1 toy, 20 accessories, 3 comics or many various items in one go)
    • packages with more than one content must be secured (e.g. sealed clear plastic pockets), so that the contents won´t get lost or scrambled.
    • Upon delivery of items a 5 Euros fee will be collected, that at the end of the fleamarket will be set against the 10% commission we keep for each sale.
    • The fleamarket ends Sunday at 11am. The Con-Helpers will make an accurate account until 12 o´clock. Please pick up remaining stocks and your money until 12:30.
    • Everything not collected until 12:30 will be considered as a donation. This also counts for the 5 Euros fee and the sales money.


    Participating in the Contests

    Fan-Art Contest
    If you want to take part at the fan-art contest, please bring your drawings (max. DinA3 size) until Saturday at 12 to the con-info booth.
    You automatically participate in the qualifying for Emiliano Santalucias drawing workshop.

    Cosplay Contest
    The cosplay contest starts at 4pm in the context of a fashion show. If you want to participate, please be at the con-info booth not later than 3.45pm to register.

    Speed Painting Contest
    Most propably you have already seen our Con-Exclusive, the “Grey King”. At the Speed Painting contest you´ve got one hour to show your painting skills at the king. The best paintjob will be honored with a very special price: Limited to only 5 copies, the “Spirit of the Grey King” will be the first price of the speed painting contest!
    Attendance fee is 16 Euros. This is the cost of the Grey King figure, which participants may of course keep after the contest.
    Attention: Only 10 slots available for this contest, so you´d better apply fast!

    We are looking forward to having a good time with all of you at the Convention!

    With many greetings,
    Your Grayskull Con-organizing team

    Just arrived in the hotel in Wachtersbach after a 5 hour drive with kids and wife. Kids watched He-man DVDS on the way here.
    5,5 hours to go.
    Shall we post pics and stuff here or make a seperate thread called "Grayskull Convention coverage 2 Sep - 4 Sep" ?

    I think that would be nicer.

    yeah, I asked him if I could pre-order them and if somebody else could pick them up for me, but pre-orders are only for people who are attending. So he advised me to find someone to buy them at the info booth for me.

    anyway, I still appreciate the thought, man
    have fun over there !!! I wish I could be there myself

    Actually the Iron Cross has been the symbol for valor and bravery for ages and that is why it was used by numerous countries during wars,including tje nazies. But also scandinavian countries, middle european etc.

    This monument is from 1870, 70 years before ww2.

    Anyway, guess I will see you there?

    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!
