We will be holding the convention at the Marriott Charlotte Executive Park right off I-77 near the heart of Charlotte. While we are still deep in the planning stages, here are a few things you can expect from the show:

Voice Actors (Woot!)
Cosplay and Costume Contests
4,000+ sq ft Dealer Room
Transformers Toy Panels
Trivia Contests
Kids Games
Friday night DJ Party

Plus tons more! We don't want to reveal too many details just yet, but we've had a ton of interest and are already expecting a big turnout. You can learn more at:

The hotel is already accepting reservations at a very reasonable rate so make your reservations soon!

Thanks!

Andrew

I'm so totally down for this, excited already :D A TF Convention 2 hours away is impossible to pass up. Hopefully the Raleigh crew makes a good showing.
Listen to me ramble about robots on the Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast.
Every once in a blue moon I write stuff about things on my blog.
I have a lot of Transformers, check them out on my shmax.com page.
Looking for Micromaster Spinner, rare Minicons and Star Saber's Rifle. PM me if you have these for sale!

The fine folks at Charticon dropped us a note to let us know they have revealed the Charticon 2013 exclusive figure. This is what they had to say.

We have exciting news! Our exclusive figure for Charticon 2013 is none other than Aftershock! Aftershock is a generations-style update of G1 Quake, complete with brand new head and will come in a custom box with accessories! This figure is limited to 50 units as they are all being hand painted and assembled. We will have a small number available for non-attendees, but they will be sold primarily to pre-registrants of the show. They will go on sale on our website soon!

Another reason why I should go to Charticon.

My Classics/Generations shelf is desperately in need of more Decepticons, and Quake here will fit in just fine. Only 50 pieces though? Damn, that means it's going to demand a high price tag. I would need more than luck to snag one.

I think low-run, hand-made custom figures are ok. After all they require purchase of a Hasbro figure.
