Join us for a short examination of the lore, and the model kits, giant robots and anthropomorphic machines. Originating with Robert Heinlein, spreading to Japan, and then returning to invade the world in films like PACIFIC RIM, ‘Mecha’ have become staples of science fiction. From novels to anime to live action film, the genre is influencing a wider and wider audience. This is their story.
Second medium size programming space. Will also have a widescreen tv or monitor available for presenting slides or running video. On Friday and Sunday the entire track of programming here is sponsored by VCON Emeritus Stan Hyde and the Monster Attack Team model building club - so expect topics on those days to range from how to build and paint garage kit models to an in-depth study of the Godzilla Multiverse. On Saturday you can expect a little bit of everything here.
