In what may seem like a long time coming to some of us, the Transformers franchise will be honored with induction into the ToyFare Hall of Fame at Wizard World Philadelphia from June 19th to June 21st, 2009 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center.
With the HASBRO toyline reaching its Silver Anniversary, it seems fitting that honoring the line would be this year. Wizard World had this to say regarding the induction:
“Hasbro has produced incredible Transformers action figures for both diehard fans and younger audiences,” Wizard Entertainment Publisher Gareb Shamus said. “We're very pleased to honor Hasbro with this award of achievement for Transformers.”
More details will be furnished once they become available. Read the original posting on this here.

TFCC- In a message to club members, Brian Savage updated the community on the current status of wait list folks, and the remaining Botcon sets.
This is going out to all Club Members!
As of today, we have sold 87% of the BotCon 2009 Wings of Honor sets. We have also cleared all of the people on the waiting list for the non-attending Iacon packages. Everyone who was on the wait list is now getting a set.
We will be allocating to the Iacon wait list each week (provided that there is any quantity left) as we get closer but, we must maintain sets for people who decide to come to BotCon at the last minute.
If you want to be on the Iacon wait list, please use the registration form and write wait list on the top.
If you are coming and have not registered yet, you need to do so very soon as when we run out, we will have to use a substitute package from the 2005 convention, and even those are now in short supply.
Finally the time is there. After a long wait can we finally announce the details for TF ConVersions 2009.
Sunday June 14th 2009
After the announcement of the date two weeks ago, the team has been busy to finalize everything. The team also received many diverse responses to our last news report. However, it were the positive responses, and foremost those regarding the location from last year, that allowed us the possibilities to reopen negotiations and come to a better agreement. Because of the positive responses, we have decided to once again hold our convention in Nieuwegein at the Merwestein Sport Complex.
After further negotiations, we have found a way to repress the ticket fees even further down. Thanks to the people from the Merwestein Complex, we have come to terms on the prices listed below. Parking at the Merwestein Sport- en Evenementencomplex is of course again free of charge.
€15.- - Tickets at the door
€12,50 - Tickets by presale via the online shop
€10.- - Children aged 3 to 14 years
Free - Children 0 to 3 years
People who already ordered their tickets, will be contacted in the coming week, and the difference will be returned.
The event will take place as before from 12.00 hrs until about 17.00 hrs. Many of the well-known items will be present again. Although some items may be repackaged. The biggest change will be the concept of the hub. Instead of seperate stands for various items, this year these will be interconnected with each other flow over bewteen them. A combination of Transformers information will stand united. Together we will see if the Hub can possibly find the answers to some of the questions you may have. There will be a panel about Kitbashing and how you can do it yourself. How you can maintain your Transformers toys and if possible how to repair them. Also the how to Draw Your Transformers art corners wil also be represented here. All the convenience in one spot.
The various activities will also be on hand. With the lotterij many great and exclusive Transformers items can be won. Several Transformers Themed games will be played. Also the Jumpstarter Challenge will be ready for action. A corner for the smaller fans (in a more subdued manner compaired to last year) where they can colour, draw and watch video will be present. And of course there will be a number of various stands where the hardcore fan can expand his/her collection.
If you want to signup as a (fan)dealer for the event sell items or you want to help during TF ConVersions. (This means from start to finish). Or you have a fun idea that we can use for the convention? Then you can contact Raymond Fransman by e-mail at email@example.com or even better register to the forum and send a PM to Raymond T. The costs and rules for keeping a stand have remained unchanged.
We will see each other on June 14th in Nieuwegein.
The update was a reminder that pre registration for the convention will be closing on April 3rd, 2009. For those of you looking to get in on the action this year at TFCon, better get those registrations in quick.
More details on the event as they become available. Check out all the details on the event at the TF Con homepage.
