      Following this thread. Couldn’t make PowerCon last year but I would love to immerse myself in the Mego-ness once again. Thanks to the Museum Braintrust for all they do!
      No exclusives and no chase figures, please - I'm Canadian!

It's fascinating to hear the "insider" take from people we don't communicate with, but that's the joy of the Parasocial relationship!

        The only "profit" we had was seeing our friends and having a great time. The Museum gets propped up by us, not the other way around.
        I missed the conspiracy accusations. I knew that no one made any money on a meet. I actually feel like the people putting in the work should at least get a stipend for time put in. It is a tremendous undertaking. Pretty much any other show, the organizer makes money. I am not sure why that would even be controversial.

          Oh yeah, I don't view "for-profit" cons as a bad thing; I sure do like toi attend them. I just always viewed Mego Meet as half Lodge Meeting/half Fundraiser for the Museum. There is no "dipping the beak" on our end, we usually don't even get back the money I use to create the float. I also always register and pay. Heck, we're paying for the Museum out of our pockets right now.
