    Yes, there was a whole second run, based on a 3-months preorder period, but everything is sold out now.

    However, I am working on something. Stay tuned a bit :-)

    One last question. Is most of the stuff in German? Would someone who speaks only English be able to interact and get a lot out of the convention?

    The tease is H.G. Francis....he wrote scripts for MOTU...I would guess it is a creature or character from one of his scripts....

    So anyone from outside of Europe going? Is there a language barrier?

    I felt very welcome, and I can't speak German (wish I could). It was a great time!

    From my time taking German as a lad; we learned that Germans are taught English as a 2nd language from what would in equivalent terms be grade school here in the U.S. In fact most countries learn English (or some other language besides their own) this way. Which is somewhat depressing when you consider most kids here in the states don't see another language except as an elective in or around Middle School.
    Harken the coming of Dragstor!!

    I just sent a email for registration. Trying to see if the accommodation is still available and for three nights. I was going back through the old threads and the convention looks pretty sweet. Hoping this year will be the same! Kind of nervous as there seems to be less activity this year on the sites. Is there a lot of people registered?

    Had a great time at the Con myself. Will post later a longer text and more photos.

    Was especially fun seeing all familiar friends from last two years. And was very fortunate we slept (at Ascalon's) very close by to the Con-area so the travel there was very easy and quick.

    Wanted to thank all the fans who came to my DC He-Man panel. It was so much fun!

    Most of these photos below were taken by my beautiful and talented girlfriend Milla.

    Guests line up for the convention. With Ascalon on the left announcing everything.



    German talents, voice-actors, etc. They were awesome.




    The Exhibition room was great. You could see lot of MOTUC toys, custom-accessories, props. And the guest-artists hard at work. Sebastian Kempke,
    Karsten "MAXX" Klintzsch and SHA.

    [ Image removed by request of The Power and The Honor Foundation. Emiliano said that due to legal reasons, they currently don't allow public sharing of images from their archives. ]



    Meeting SHA was cool. Haven't spoken with him in a long time



    Really liked meeting Simon Soltau again. He was busy live-painting Castle Grayskull, and it was just a blast seeing him work.

    You can see his blog-entry in this link. Can't wait to see it when its finally finished!




    Martin Ruffin's live-action movie props display was also very awesome.




    Also was very curious to learn at the Power and Honor Foundation -Panel that Mattel had plans in the vintage line to
    make more figures, that would re-use existing parts. Like how King Randor, Clamp Champ, Ninjor, etc were.

    And that Strobo would have been one of those upcoming figures. There is even the cardback-art by Errol McCarthy for the character.
    Fighting against Snake-Horde-Troopers. (again figures made using existing parts, but don't know what the story is with Snake Men being Horde Troopers..)



    All and all wonderful time.

    Thanks for sharing, Jukka !

    It would be great to learn more about those cancelled vintage figures and their cardbacks arts....maybe in the next P&H issue....
