OZFORMERS 2003

Why have an Australian Transformers Convention?
In countries such as the United States, the United Kingdom and Japan, Transformer fans have been enjoying the pleasure of attending Transformer conventions and/or Transformer boothes at other conventions such as Transcon (UK), JafCon (Japan) and of course, BotCon.

What is a Convention?
 

con-ven-tion
n.
a. A formal meeting of members, representatives, or delegates, as of a political party, fraternal society, profession, or industry

Transformers conventions are held around the world in countries such as the United States, the United Kingdom and Japan. These conventions not only allow Transformer fans to meet other fellow Transformer fans, but also to purchase exclusive memorabilia such as comic books, T-shirts and toys.

To date, Australia has yet to host a single Transformer convention. Seeing the success of Transformers conventions in other countries, many fans have become inspired to start a convention here. This page represents the current effort by a select group of Australian Transfans (primarily Griffin and myself) to have a Transformers convention established based around a booth at the SupaNova media convention in April 5-6 2003.

What is OzFormers?
OzFormers is the name of the upcoming "booth-convention" at SupaNova 2003. The primary purpose of this booth will be to raise awareness of Transfandom and to gauge any potential interest from the Australian public in running a full scale dedicated Transformers convention. So in affect, we're testing the waters and if enough people say that they would attend a dedicated Transformers convention, then we will begin arranging for one in 2004, just in time for the 20th anniversary of the Transformers!

What's going to happen at the OzFormers booth?As mentioned before, the primary purpose of the booth will be to test fan interest for any possible future full scaled dedicated Transformer conventions in Australia. Consequently, we will be running a survey asking several relevant questions which will determine whether a dedicated Transformers convention will be viable or not.

In addition, we will also be promoting Transfandom, including promoting OzFormers and offering people a chance to become a member of the longest running authorised Transfan organisation in Australia.

Will there be any exclusive merchandise?
You bet your Energon cube there will!! Unfortunately Hasbro never got back to me about an exclusive toy, but there will be an exclusive comic book (entitled "On Devil's Ground") and posters!

Can I reserve an order for the comic book?
For those of you who cannot make it to Sydney for the convention and would like to reserve a copy of On Devil's Ground, then please Email ozformers@yahoo.com.au and provide your full name, postal address and contact telephone number.

Note that at this stage we can NOT guarantee any reservations. But don't worry, we won't be asking you to pay any money until we can be sure that we can provide you with a copy of the book.

The book is costs $3 per issue. There is also a postal fee of $7 for anywhere within Australia and New Zealand (sorry, no overseas orders!).

Reservations will be strictly limited to one copy per customer. Prices are subject to change.
