FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
June 09, 2009

MechaCon returns to Lafayette, La. on July 24-26, 2009!
Anime, Transformers & Japanese Cultural event

LAFAYETTE, LA: After four successful annual conventions since 2005, MechaCon returns to the Hilton Lafayette on the weekend of July 24-26, 2009 with MechaCon V.

Conveniently located along the I-10 corridor between New Orleans and Houston, Lafayette will again serve as the host city for MechaCon. Being a convention held in the "Hub City," MechaCon is easily accessible for fans from not only south, central and north Louisiana, but also east Texas, Arkansas, Mississippi, Alabama and Florida.

Confirmed attendees at previous MechaCons included fans from areas as far away as Mexico, Canada, Washington state, Kansas, California, New York and more, making MechaCon a well-attended event from all fronts.

Slated for the 2009 convention is a celebration of 25 Years of Transformers, where two of the voice actors who have brought to life many incarnations of Optimus Prime and Megatron (Garry Chalk & David Kaye), bring the wonderful world of Transformers to attendees. Aside from his acting and voice work, Garry Chalk is also an accomplished musician who will be performing at MechaCon's 2009 Opening Ceremonies and Formal/Semi-formal Dinner.

Aside from Transformers guests, MechaCon welcomes noted legends of anime English dubbing work, Chris and Greg Ayres of Nerima Daikon Brothers, Samantha Inoue-Harte of Sakura Wars, Vic Mignogna and Wendy Powell of Fullmetal Alchemist and Mary Elizabeth McGlynn of Naruto and Ghost in the Shell as honored guests. On Saturday night, following MechaCon's impressive cosplay competition, fans will also be treated to the musical stylings of Vic Mignogna in a concert performance open to all attendees.

In addition to working with many companies and professionals in the Anime industry to bring attendees the most enjoyable convention experience possible, MechaCon V will also be a return stop on Harmony Gold's Robotech Convention Tour 2009, where MechaCon welcomes back Kevin McKeever, Operations Coordinator of Harmony Gold as an honored industry guest.

MechaCon's table-top gaming department will also be celebrating the 20th Anniversary of the Shadowrun RPG with special gaming guest Adam Jury of Catalyst Game Labs while MechaCon's 24-hour electronic gaming department welcomes back MechCorps BattleTech as they deliver adrenaline-pumping action as players control thirty-foot tall, 75-ton walking tanks, blasting their way to victory from inside of MechCorps six BattleMech Cockpit Simulator Pods.

We've got SICK prizes so far. They've donated over $2000 worth of toys which I'm using to craft "The Ultimate Transformers Fan" Prize package along with smaller prize packages that aren't as the Ultimate...

The Winsdor Star has an article about a 3 hour stand off with heavy police forces and a man who pointed with a G1 Megatron.

WINDSOR, Ont. -- A 25-year-old Windsor man who allegedly pointed a handgun at his neighbours was arrested on Wednesday after police officers surrounded his west end residence.

The three-hour standoff forced the lockdown of a nearby elementary school, and drew a police response that included tactical officers, body armour, submachine guns, sniper rifles, a police dog and the mobile command centre.

“We treat everything as real,” said Insp. Kirk Mason at the scene after the man had been taken into custody.

“There will be a search of the premises and hopefully we’ll come up with whatever it is that he was waving out the window at his neighbours.”

But the man’s friends accused police of overreacting, and said his supposed handgun was a toy.

“It’s a Transformer,” said William Findley, 24. “It turns into a Luger. It’s an 80s-style Transformer... He’s had a really bad day. People are treating him like crap.”
