Probably have to skip on it this year with it being so close to sw celebration time-wise... A little too broke to make two trips this year, I think...
Photog is here! thank you, Mattel!
Now how about some mini-comics love (like Lodar, Geldor, Dakon......)? And Mermista?
I hope I have the money to make 2 trips to California.Really wanted to go to SDCC and Power Con this year...Aaaaargh!
I think I WILL be able to come!!! I wasn't sure, but it looks like I can work it out scheduling-wise!
We need a mechanical Battle Cat!
Musclor, you have to come. You have no choice!
A Want List of Sorts: at this point... I just hope there is a 2017...
Mechanical Battle Cat? Like one of those bulls?

I urge everyone to book their room as soon as they can, the hotel does not run your card and as long as you cancel within 24 hours you always have an out. But reserving early (speaking from hotel manager experience) you will get more requests granted (if you want feather pillows, low or high floor, near an elevator, early check-in, etc) and you will be placed in overall better rooms by booking early.
Just don't want anyone to miss out because they think they will have to pay up front, the card is only put in so they have an account to start the reservation under and charge you if you do not cancel and then no-show (which believe me happens plenty)

the ignore list is my new best friend
...and the room is booked. Looking forward to meeting some of ya'll.
Ask not for whom MOTUC is made, it's made for thee.
If you have to disclaimer your like, then you don't really like it.
I'll be there again for sure! Thankfully I live fairly locally so I won't need a room. If anyone is on the fence - jump off it and come to PowerCon! You won't regret it!

My feedback thread. http://www.he-man.org/forums/boards/...d.php?t=202525
I'm already making plans to try and make it to a couple comic publishers while I'm in town. This trip is starting to get better & better (and I need to find money for it somehow, too).
I booked my room. I am flying in on the Thursday and leaving Monday. I liked getting there a day before so I can help out, unwind and just basically extend my fun a bit. I really think people should stay through Sunday and hang out after the Con is over. That was some of the best part of last year.
So, who is wanting to split a room with me this year?
I want NA Skeletor and Rio Blast and I want them now!

You are correct. I am sure there is something about the ninja per room occupancy . We'd probably have to pay some sort of deposit..... in the blood of our enemies.

Heads up! One third of our hotel block is already sold out!
It looks like our fellow Eternians, Etherians, and Thundarians are eager to come to the 2nd annual Power-Con / ThunderCon this September!
We've already SOLD OUT of 1/3 of our room block at the Torrance Marriott South Bay Hotel!
Make sure to reserve your room today using our special discounted rate! Details can be found here on how to book your room.
We can't wait to see you in September!
Wish I had someone to share a room with. Would make it cheaper for me
the ignore list is my new best friend
I still think we should go in together rent the biggest suite they have and bring sleeping bags , like one big slumber party. Sharing a bathroom would suck though , but a big suite would have more than 1.

If I compete in August, I'm there. If my coach tells me to wait until October or November, then I'll have to sadly view via interwebs!

I booked my room. I'll have a spare bed if someone wants to split the cost LMK.
My concern is the cost of transportation. My whole life (and 85% of my stuff) is back in Cali, so I'd be flying a week before and staying an indeterminate amount of time. I'd prefer to drive. It certainly more relaxing then flying! Is anyone up for a road trip? I figure the total cost for round trip per person would be $225 assuming we have 5 people and rent a van for a week. It might even cheaper if we just rent it for a day, drive in shifts, return it before the convention and repeat the process to get home. I however would not be on the return home drive. I can guarantee you 4 things;
1: cheaper then flying.
2: more comfortable.
3: more fun then flying.
4: a real opportunity to get to know each other...which could be a good or bad thing
Some people are impossible to get along with, and complain about any little thing. Like taking too long in the bathroom, using more then 5 pillows, watching TV at 4 am or that I snore between sleep screaming and farting. What do people want me to stop breathing too?!?!
