We would like to thank everyone that came out to Retro Con this past weekend! We had a pretty steady burn between Saturday and Sunday, and you could really feel the energy in the place this year! Also, you guys brought some of the most awesome and original costumes!! As we like to say, we may not be the highest attendance show out there, but we like to think we are one of the most concentrated fun shows. And a lot of that atmosphere is created by what you, the attendees, bring with you!

Also a huge thanks to everyone that helped add to the show this year! The vendors, the costume groups, the car owners, the gaming spots, our A/V person Chris, our photo and press people, our sponsors such as Retrodaze, and all of our friendly guests this year!

And a special thanks to our awesome volunteers! Thanks for going above and beyond when random problems arise! Without you guys there, this show would not be possible, and we sincerely appreciate your hard work and punctuality.

Stay tuned, we will be posting a highlights gallery of the sights from around the show this year!

Help us celebrate the 30th anniversary of the M.A.S.K. toy line and cartoon at Retro Con 2015!! Members of Agents of MASK and will be at the show and hosting a panel on Saturday from 11:15am to 12:00pm, which will include the voice of Matt Trakker himself- Doug Stone!

Doug will be joining two panels during the convention- one with his voice acting peers, and another separate panel just to discuss M.A.S.K.! Doug will also be signing autographs during the event at no charge!

So what will Agents of M.A.S.K. be contributing to the convention? Well first off, admins Wyatt and Jason will be in attendance on Saturday and will be joining their friend Bill Faries of for the aforementioned M.A.S.K. panel. They are also planning to record some video segments for their YouTube channel and possibly a special MASKast to be released at a later date!

They will also be providing some printed material for the show. If you’re a M.A.S.K. fan, but don’t have any items for Doug Stone to sign, they’ll have you covered! They’ve designed a special photo montage print just for Retro Con! Check it out below…

8.5 x 11 glossy prints (minus logo watermark) will be made available for free at Doug’s table. These will be at a limited quantity, so we ask one per person. They will also be providing a free handout containing information about the online M.A.S.K. fan community. These flyers will be made available in a common area and we they also likely hand them to fans as they browse the convention floor.

They are looking forward to meeting some of their followers and MASKast listeners, so please let them know if you plan to attend! We would love to see M.A.S.K. fans come out in full force!!

We bought an existing phone booth and remodeled it to closely match the booth design in the original Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure movie- right down to the “umbrella” antenna topper! It also features light-up marquees and other features found in the movie version!
