Save the dates! TFcon – The world’s largest fan-run Transformers convention will take place July 11th to 13th, 2014 in Toronto. TFcon will return to the Delta Meadowvale Hotel and Conference Centre to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of the Transformers. Discounted hotel block information will be available in the near future. Dealer bookings will open in January. We hope you can join us.
Our friend Rosemary Tuski (aka Screamers84 in Energon Pub) and one of the organizers behind Retrocons dropped by with an update for the Philadelphia convention, which takes place next week.
A huge part of the convention will be centered towards Transformers, with exclusive door prizes, Neil Ross the voice of Springer, Hook and Slag attending and Bob Budiansky the original writer for the Transformer marvel comics!
With a Costume Contest, Panels, Door Prizes and more!!
A quick call by Seibertron member First Gen to the Pasadena Sheraton reveals to us that BotCon 2014 could possibly be held at the Pasadena Convention Center in Pasadena, CA in June according to the Sheraton employees. Speculation was that it would be held in Pasadena again since 2014 is a movie year just like 2009 and 2011 (Revenge of the Fallen and Dark of the Moon), although the June 2014 event dates have yet to be posted on the Pasadena Convention Center website. There is also a discounted hotel block at the Sheraton in June. The phone number to the Pasadena Sheraton is 626-449-4000 or 888-627-8670 for hotel reservations.
Note this has not been confirmed by Fun Publications. Stay tuned to Seibertron.com and we will update you when we receive official confirmation.
"In my mind I'm going to Carolina..." which is unfortunately exactly how I experienced Charticon, but Podcasters Mike, Scotty, and Jon, as well as Bob were there for a first hand experience of the small convention scene, which turned out to be not quite so small, and they describe it to me, Matt, and for you, the listening audience to enjoy. This episode is available directly and in our RSS Feed and should appear on iTunes within 24 to 48 hours of this news post.
This episode of the Twincast has a couple of different pieces. The previously mentioned introduction by Counterpunch, Scotty P, Jon 3.0, and Tigertrack as we discuss small conventions, and Charticon specifically and some appropriate new news items like Generations Hoist and Thundercracker (and the other recently released Generations toys as well--check out the galleries!), the new Bot Shots reveals (cool new Soundwave!), and always relevant and reliable for a great discussion, the TRANSFORMERS COLLECTOR's CLUB and their sharing of the first full figure digital mock up of FSS 2.0 TREADSHOT and a secret scout-sized 7th character toy!
Also in this short first segment, these 4 guys (missing a guy and fries) also discuss KRE-O, retail release of Platinum Edition toys, and even touch on the comics a little as we discuss the recent 'Dark Cybertron' covers and what has interested us lately in comics.
Then, Part 2 of the podcast is a live recording from Charticon in North Carolina with podcasters Mike, Bob, and Scotty, and some other friends who joined them in discussions and fun.
Don't forget! The podcast is running a photo contest. We currently have two entries for this contest, so the rest of you need to pick up the slack, and show us your creativity, or you are just conceding that the two entries we have are THE MOST CREATIVE POSSIBLE...
See you around next time faithful listener, and thank you for listening to the podcast.
By the way, check out the image of Seibertron board member JRGReer74 and his awesome prize from CHARTICON! Congrats JRGreer74, many jealous board members salute you!

Our friends over at Unicron.com were able to attend the debut of Tranformers: More Than Meets the Eye, Last Stand of the Wreckers and Chaos Theory writer James Roberts panel at TFCon! The talk ranged from the rationale behind his storytelling to more in-depth looks at characters such as Rung, to the origins of the fan-acclaimed current ongoing series. Head over to the Unicron.com for a write-up of the panel highlights, and check out their video too, embedded below!
