IACON ONE: Where things are not what they seem....
July 7-8, 2006
Fort Wayne, Indiana

March 13, 2006 News


Welcome to the latest installment of the Iacon One newsletter. New update to the Iacon One Datatrax, otherwise, it's a quiet week... or is it?? There's a lot going on behind the scenes. Among other announcements, pre-registration is almost at hand!


What is Datatrax? We've set aside a portion of the Iacon One web site for a look at some fun artifacts / information of interest to fans, rarely seen before, some of which will be on display in their original form at the Iacon One event in July. We'll also be doing some 'behind the scenes' blogging about the event as plans progress.

The latest addition to the Datatrax is unused character art for... Transformers Universe Menasor! Who, you ask? This redeco was originally planned for the Transformers Universe toyline, but never released. But now you can get a look at what might have been... (recognize the toy?)


The Iacon One art contest is underway! Get all the information here:

Remember, special hotel rates are available for Iacon One attendees! More information here:

The news letter of the MechaCon 2.0, which will be held on August 11th-13th, has been send. Amoungst the updates comes the news that Scott McNeil, voice actor from several of the more recent Transformers series, has been confirmed for the convention. The following has been taken from the news letter. More info can be found on their site.

Team MechaCon is proud to announce that Scott McNeil will be a guest at MechaCon
2.0 this August!

Scott is a fan favorite as he has provided some of the best known voices from
Anime and Transformers. His voluminous credits include Duo Maxwell from Gundam
Wing; Koga from InuYasha; Rattrap, Silverbolt, Dinobot, Dinobot II and
Waspinator from Transformers: Beast Wars; Jetfire from Transformers: Armada and
Transformers: Energon; Snarl and Backstop in Transformers: Cybertron; and
Wolverine from X-Men: Evolution.

From heroes to villians and everthing that growls or snarls in between, Scott
has voiced it. You can read more about his incredible career in television and
film on our Guest Page:

Join us August 11-13, 2006 at MechaCon and welcome Scott McNeil to Cajun



If you intend to purchase a GoldPass for MechaCon 2.0, now is the time to do so,
as our limited number of available GoldPasses is rapidly dwindling. At the time
of this e-mail, there are only 33 GoldPasses remaining for purchase. Once these
last 33 GoldPasses are gone, they’re gone… and GoldPasses will no longer be
available for MechaCon 2.0.

So, get ‘em while they’re hot!



Only 18 days remaining to take advantage of our Early-Bird Pre-Registration

All Regular Package Pre-Registrations received before March 15th, 2006 will be
automatically up-graded to a SilverPass Pre-Registration package!

Also! Don't forget about our Opening Ceremonies & Formal/Semi-formal Dinner
Lucky Draw!

Five lucky dinner attendees will be drawn at random for an opportunity to be
seated with our special guests for the MechaCon Opening Ceremonies &
Formal/Semi-formal Dinner on Friday night. You must have a Opening Ceremonies &
Formal/Semi-formal Dinner reservation to be eligible for the Lucky Draw.



All hotel reservations made at the Hilton Lafayette before May 1st, 2006 will be
entered into our hotel lucky-draw. One reservation, chosen at random during our
Opening Ceremonies, will have their hotel accommodations for the convention
weekend paid by Sennin Productions, LLC and MechaCon (room and tax only,

block are eligible.

For those who plan to get a room at the Hilton Lafayette, please make your
reservation through our Accommodations page so we can be credited for your

I cannot stress enough how extremely vital making your reservations through the
online portal is to the future of MechaCon.

Also, if you reserve your room by phone, be sure to ask to be put in the
"MechaCon Room Block", otherwise, we won't get credit for your reservation. If
you've already reserved a room, call the Hilton to double-check that your
reservation is in the MechaCon Room Block. If not, please ask to have it moved
there. If they say they can't move it (which they should be able to), just tell
them you want to cancel your current reservation and re-do your reservation in
the MechaCon block. There is absolutely no cost to do this!

We need your reservation in the MechaCon Room Block, so please make it through
there. For every room night booked at the Hilton in the MechaCon block, the con
gets a few dollars knocked off the rental space... dollars that will go toward
the budget for **MechaCon 3.0**!



After the exceptionally positive response ‘Prime Passion’ received at last
year’s MechaCon, our good friends over at 'My Little Transformer' are showing
their continued support of MechaCon with ‘Prime Passion 2: Total Recall’!. Come
and check out the further adventures of Optimus Prime and his beloved Sailor
Moon as Sailor Moon fights to save the mech she loves from the schemes of the
evil Megatron!

The trailers can be seen here:

'My Little Transformer' is a fan-created parody that showcases the adventures of
everyone's favorite '80s properties... *The Transformers* and *My Little Pony*.
Hilarity ensues as this series gets ever more outrageous with each new episode.
Watch a few episodes of 'My Little Transformer' and you'll be in tears from
laughing so hard! Go give them a visit!
