Q: Why do I have to pay separately for Robo Toy Fest?
A: Because Robo Toy Fest, our partner con, which has full control of the dealer’s room, as well as an impressive guest list of their own does not do pre-registration. Unfortunately, they only sell tickets at the door.
Q: Do I have to purchase a Robo Toy Fest ticket to get in, or can I do Robotech activities only?
A; Unfortunately, you will have to pay the $7 ticket price for Robo Toy Fest to get into the convention (no Robotech only admission). This is because all of our insurance and administrative functions are being handled by Robo Toy Fest. To keep it legal, you must be an attendee of RTF.
Q: What is the cast and crew dinner?
A; The cast and crew dinner is just that. Dinner at Buca De Bepo with the cast and crew (our guests) of Robotech. This dinner is on Saturday evening, October 3rd, the night before the con. There are two ways to get in, purchase the Admiral level ticket, or purchase a Dinner Only ticket. If you purchase a ticket for only the dinner, it does not get you into the con unless you also purchase a con ticket. Ticket includes a meal (the Classico selection from Buca’s Banquet Menu including unlimited soft drinks, coffee and tea)
Q: How do I get my promotional items which come with the ticket I purchased?
A: When you check into the con and pick up your badge we will give you a goody bag with your promotional items. If you are unable to attend the con, we will make every effort to get you the items, but we can’t make any promises.
Q: Do I only get a program guide with the Captain and Admiral tickets?
A: No. We will have a four or five page handout for everyone with the important information on it. The program guide that comes with the Captain and Admiral tickets is a full book filled with Robotech art, fiction, interviews, etc. If you would like to purchase one separately, a link will be available soon to order one from Amazon.com.
Q: If I can’t make it to the con, can I get a refund?
Q: Why only 25 dinner tickets?
A: Actually, its 50. 25 Dinner Only and 25 Admiral tickets. We want to limit the number so you get a genuine face to face experience with the celebrities. This puts it at less than ten attendees per celebrity. We want to make sure you have the opportunity to have a personal experience with the voice actors and other guests.
