Josh,

Alice and I will be brining our Hobbiton sections as well if that will fit. I might Michael might also have his section still put together as well. My only issue is my wife dropped a section so I will have to rebuilt it.. (/wrist) I will also be bringing Greyskull and my Tudor building, and library, but I am not sure if any of them will fit very well.

Not clear on that, sorry my bad. :oops:

I don't really do "stand-alone". Maybe I'll get there someday, but not just yet. :wink:

Do you think there will be any problem with me putting a stack of these "business cards" next to it for public consumption?


Fine by me!

Excellent! Castle is coming along. If the "main" collab is small this year, I'm fine with that. Sounds like we will have plenty of other things anyway.

See y'all soon!

Hi Josh -

I just wanted to make sure there was still stand-alone space for my 64 diameter circular MOC as I emailed about previously. It may overhang the edges slightly.

Thanks,
-John.

Hey John,

There will absolutely be room. Did I not reply? I was thinking that I did.

Okay, with recent developments (AKA, my Dalek takes up WAY more room in my car than I had hoped) I am unsure if I will have room for what I have planned. I know for sure, if I DO bring it, it will be basically a field. Good for battles, I guess. I'll find out for sure on Sunday. Hope that will be enough time.

You mean to say that the Dalek doesn't just fit in the trunk? ;)

Looking forward to seeing it in person!

I wish..... It probably could if I didn't care about reassembling it. as it stands, the shoulders take up 2/3s of my trunk (but I can throw stuff inside the shoulders, which is where all my X-wings will fit.)

I look forward to showing it!

Man, I wish I found this thread earlier. I have a Castle me and my friend Eli Willsea have been working on, a 100+ studs deep and wide, I don't have any Pig or Cow bodies to put on it, but I would be willing to have somebody's army raiding it :D Any takers?

My Garhims would love to raid your castle! Do you have any landscape in front of it for my men to occupy, or do I need to bring my own?

Where are you coming from, and how are you managing to bring such a large castle with you?? :o

We have a big grass section in the front, the castle itself takes up only 2/3rds of our total space.

We're coming up from bellow Portland, and its called a 15 passenger van with the seats taken out :D (Oh and lots and lots of pillows)

Now that I think about it, I wanted to have a few sheep in the front, so I think an all out siege would be a little to much, but a 10-20 man raid on 1 wall would be neat.

Sadly, it doesn't look like my Macro-fig is going to be finished in time for the Con. I just have not had any spare time with all of the studying I've been doing for my exam.

I did manage to assemble my Cow troops this weekend, and will work on Boar troops probably Thursday evening after work. Sorry I'm not contributing much this year, guys. I'll have to make up for it next year :oops:

I just have to say from my semi delirious state... From Friday 7pm to Sunday 7pm I built 36 of 48 hours stopping to sleep 5 hours each night and grab food etc. My mouth almost wrote checks my body couldn't cash, but I think it will all work out (provided I can get everything there in one piece) My Hobbiton display is in pieces from the move, but I should be able to put it back together before Thursday. Maybe I will replace all the hobbit heads and make Hoggiton.
