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!

Round Up of Q&A from Google Hangout with Hasbro: Combiner Wars Titans Return and More

To those not yet aware, Hasbro held am online conference with different online news sites, providing us the abundance of news that appeared recently such as Power Master Prime, G2 Bruticus and a deluge of RID Minicons.

Ben Yee from bwtf was present as we were and he compiled the key elements from he Q&A which followed the presentation. You will see what Hasbro has to say about Deluxe Groove, the upcoming Titan figure, as well as the brand departure of Jerry Jivoin and more:

Questions & Answers
At the end of the session there was a round robin Q&A session. Here are some of the highlights of the information that came out of that session:

There are plans to bring in other generations into the 2016 line (including homages to the 1986 movie and Beast Wars).

The "Year of the Monkey" Optimus Primal is meant to celebrate the anniversary of "Beast Wars"

The Q&A confirmed Powermaster Optimus Prime is an extensive retool retaining only some of the joints, connection points and a couple parts. Even the cab has some differences.

The Battle Packs were a challenge to design due to having to turn the armor into weapons.

Fortress Maximus was very challenging to work on due to its size, costing, weight and the fact that it has to work with other bases in the "Titans Return" line. It is a retool of Metroplex, but an extensive one.

One of the hardest parts of designing the "Titans Return" line was the interaction of the "Master" figures across the line. The scales of robot heads in particular was an issue (which the "helmet sections" helped solve).

When asked why the more traditional "engine to humanoid" form wasn't used, Hasbro emphasized they wanted to keep the play pattern consistent (head to robot) instead of having too many types of "Masters" mixed up in the line.

No comment when asked about Masterpiece Decepticons.

Don't read into Decepticon Hammer have two different trees (one Autobot, one Decepticon) in the two pictures. It was a photo error.

The "Cybertron Con" trademark was positioned as a successful convention in Asia and they wanted to protect the trademark as much as possible. Botcon 2016 is happening as planned. No further information was provided.

Hasbro knows fans outside of Japan want the Deluxe Groove, but nothing specific was said other than "We love Groove".

Hasbro did not rule out more G1 reissues in 2016.

The "Stars City Neon" deal (the parent company of Victory Hill exhibitions) aims towards installments like an exhibition and not fan conventions.
Jerry Jivoin will be leaving the brand team at the end of the year for a position in marketing at Hasbro Italy.

Adding to the press release we posted earlier, about Victory Hill and Hasbro teaming up in Las Vegas, the New York Times has a little more detail on what the Cybertron Con collaboration actually holds for the Transformers. Read up below, and start packing your bags - Vegas is calling!

LAS VEGAS — Batman has his bat cave. Superman has his fortress of solitude. And soon the Avengers and a team of Transformers will call a corner on the Las Vegas Strip home.

Treasure Island casino-hotel has leased 28,000 square feet above a CVS drugstore to Victory Hill Exhibitions to create immersive displays dedicated to the pop-culture brands.

The 10-year lease includes $2 million in tenant improvements to the corner space on Las Vegas Boulevard and Spring Mountain Road.

Victory Hill ended its 18-month run at the Discovery Times Square space in New York where it offered its Marvel's Avengers S.T.A.T.I.O.N. exhibit. The Transformers exhibit is exclusive to Las Vegas and is still in development.

The exhibit is expected to open by March or April. Company officials haven't decided on an admission price.
