On April 5-6, OzFormers established a booth at the SupaNova convention to test fan interest for a Transformers convention in Australia. The booth was a smashing success, and as plans are already set in motion for Australia's first fully dedicated Transformers convention for 2004, word needs to get out to the Transfan population that this great event is going to occur during the Transformers' 20th anniversary!
Animania is an annual animé convention held in Sydney. In an effort to promote Transfandom in Australia and increase awareness of the impending convention for 2004, OzFormers will have be having a small presence at Animania 2003.
What to expect:
