Pete Sinclair from the Transformers Collectors' Club was recently on the Cybercast Podcast and answered a few questions about BotCon 2016 and dropped hints about the souvenir figures and some future TFCC offerings. The following includes a few of the most interesting points Pete talked about.

Here are a few of the hints dropped about BotCon 2016 toys.

  • 9 of the figures uses Combiner Wars molds including the custom class figure
  • The souvenir centerpiece figure does not use a CW mold
  • One of the toys "Uses a not yet released in U.S. headsculpt
  • Souvenir figures will be sold individually outside the troop builder set

Pete also answered a few TFCC questions. When asked if there is still plans for more human characters from G.I. Joe figures, Pete answered that they plan to make "Only Human" Rodimus and Arcee. These figures be carded. More to be revealed at a later date. The next issue of the Club Magazine features the packaging reveal of the 2016 Club exclusive Skywarp. The issue will also feature the 2016 membership incentive figure Ramjet and will have Transformers Subscription Service 5.0 reveals.

What do you think about the BotCon figure hints? Do they give you an idea of what the souvenir figures will be? Discuss your ideas in the Energon Pub.

Courtesy of the Transformers Collectors' Club envoy TF_JW, we have an update on the guestlist for the 2016 edition of BotCon. One spider leaves, another one crawls in, as Alec Willows cancels his appearance, but Venus Terzo confirms hers - check out more info below!

An update for the BotCon 2016 guest list:

Alec Willows has unfortunately cancelled his BotCon 2016 appearance. Well, I should say that it is unfortunate for those attending the show. For Mr. Willows, his cancellation is due to his earning a part in a theatrical play which will still be running by the time BotCon rolls around. So congratulations to him!

In his place will be the other Beast Wars spider. Venus Terzo, the voice of the original Blackarachnia, will be in attendance during the weekend and ready to sign all of those brand-new Takara Tomy Legends Blackarachnia figures!

Head over to the guest page on BotCon.com for the updated guest list.

The folks at TFNation are realy on the logistics ball, preparing and gearing up for their first event in Birmingham (UK) this summer with all the info you might need to book your tickets, hotel and whatnot for the duration of the convention. Find out more below, and get your English pound converters ready, as all is released this coming Friday 15th January!

Operation: Ticket Sales

We are pleased to confirm that tickets to TFNation 2016 will go on general sale from 12:00pm (GMT) on Friday 15th January 2016.

The booking process is swift and easy:

PHASE ONE - BOOKING
Tickets will only be sold at www.tfnation.com.

The TFNation crew has invested in a custom-built website which uses the latest booking technology and SSL certification to ensure your booking is simple, safe and secure.

PHASE TWO - PAYMENT
Payments will be accepted via TFNation’s ‘Paypal for Business’ platform.

This means you can choose to pay with your credit or debit card, or your existing Paypal account, giving you flexibility.

PHASE THREE - CONFIRMATION
TFNation refuses to wait around. Confirmation emails will be sent to you the same day you book - usually within 30 minutes. You will also be able to access your booking history and tickets at any time via our website. There you can either print, or download your tickets to your smartphone to bring to the event.

PHASE FOUR – HOTEL ROOMS
Once you have paid for your ticket, the website will automatically give you the option to proceed to the Hilton Metropole’s reservation page. This page has been created just for TFNation ticket holders, giving you a great discount on regular hotel prices. You can reserve now and pay later, so there is no reason to wait.

We will send a further transmission regarding accommodation shortly, but we do wish to stress that hotel rooms are strictly subject to availability. It is important to remember that TFNation is a first year event and therefore our bedroom quota is limited – if the convention proves to be successful, we will hopefully be able to reserve even more bedrooms in future years.

Thank you for your support. We look forward to welcoming you to our new website this coming Friday!

Further transmissions to follow.

2016 is actually here, for everyone, and the crew over at TFNation are making sure that Transformers: Beast Wars' 20th anniversary does not go unnoticed (have you seen our new site banner?) - by announcing a new guest for the event taking place this August: Richard Newman, voice of Rhinox, Tankor (Beast Machines) and even Vector Prime in Cybertron! Find out more here and below.

Operation: Beast Wars

We are honoured to announce TFNation 2016 will see the first ever UK Transformers convention appearance of Richard Newman, who will be helping us to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of Beast Wars and the 10th Anniversary of Transformers: Cybertron!

To Transformers fans, Richard is best known as Rhinox – the flower-sniffing, “Chainguns of Doom”-toting, Predacon-smacking Maximal from the Beast Wars era; a role he would later revisit in the twisted form of Tankor during the Beast Machines series.

Richard’s Transformers credentials do not end there, as he was also responsible for voicing Transformers: Cybertron’s time and space guardian, Vector Prime.

Outside of Transformers, Richard has amassed a huge resume of impressive acting work both behind the mic and on screen. Some of his many roles include; Grandfather in Pingu; Governor-General Phaeton in Exosquad; Iron Klaw from G.I. Joe Extreme; Tōtōsai from InuYasha; Cranky Doodle Donkey from My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic; Rattlor, The Faceless One, Lord Dactys and many others from He-Man and the Masters of the Universe (2002); Toadborg from Bucky O’Hare and the Toad Wars and the unforgettable M. Bison from Street Fighter: The Animated Series (YES! YES!). In 2001 his performance as Shylock in The Merchant of Venice led to a Jessie Award nomination for “Outstanding Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role, Large Theatre”.

Richard will be signing autographs and taking part in panels during our inaugural convention which will run from Friday 19th and Sunday 21st August 2016.

With 2016 nearing by the minute, new UK Transformers convention TFNation has ushered in their ticket pricing for this summer's event! You can find all of the information summed up below, and in the image - check it out, and consider your options in time for the January release on the tickets.

Operation: Ticket Prices Announced

As it's the most wonderful time of the year we at TFNation are please to reveal our family-friendly ticket prices for 2016.

To design this price structure we have listened to feedback from attendees who visited previous UK conventions. We decided that rather than sell family passes - which can often exclude certain groups, such as single parent families – the better choice would be to simply offer low prices across the board, so all shapes and sizes of families can come and enjoy the fun at an affordable price.

Each ticket-holding adult/senior will be able to bring along up to three children aged under 13 years of age, free of charge. Here are some examples of how this will work;

1 adult & up to 3 children:
£55.00 for the weekend
or
£35.00 for just Sunday

1 senior & up to 3 children:
£20.00 for the weekend
or
£13.00 for just Sunday

2 adults & up to 6 children:
£110.00 for the weekend
or
£70.00 for just Sunday

1 adult, 1 senior & up to 6 children:
£75.00 for the weekend
or
£48.00 for just Sunday

If you are new to conventions and just want to test the waters, a Sunday ticket may be a great place to start. But if you want the full convention experience running from Friday evening to Sunday, including our Saturday night showcase event, then the weekend ticket is for you!

Buying a ticket will also mean you become eligible to reserve a Hilton bedroom at a special discounted rate. Tickets and rooms are scheduled to go on sale in January 2016.

Happy holidays everybody!

We have received a quick note from FunPub and the Transformers Collectors' Club, regarding the registration process for BotCon 2016 - taking place in Louisville, Kentucky this coming April - and how some technical details are ensuring that it will open in January of the new year. Find out more below!

Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah and Happy New Year!

We are still finalizing the registration system move to the new server. This has taken longer than expected due to issues with the old programmer. Their non-cooperation has caused us to have to rebuild the original version of the registration software from back-ups.

We do not want to impact your Christmas funds as we are entirely too close at this point to start registration. The current plan is open registration in mid-January.

We hope this relieves any anxiety you may have concerning BotCon registration and helps with your funds planning.

Thanks for your support and have a great holiday season!

Brian
