Our own Atreyu will be hosting a mini-convention for Nordic Transformers fans. On top of that there will be an Exclusive figure offered to those who attend! Here is what Atreyu had to say:

"There will be a mini convention in our house on november 11, and everybody is welcome. Free dining and lodging, and perhaps most importantly: a free exclusive figure for anybody who attends.

A little known fact is that stunticon drag strip was actually based on the 1976 Tyrrell P34 six-wheeler formula one car. Considering drag strip's diaclone prototype heritage, this real world colour scheme is long overdue. There will be less than 15 figures produced, and as previously mentioned, it is completely free. Here's the prototype and tech spec + bio. It will come in a G1 style box. Robot mode and an extended "universe" style bio will be unveiled at the "mini-con"



DECEPTICON DOWNFORCE

FUNCTION: INTERCEPTOR
"Only unity and a strong leader can maintain order"

DOWNFORCE no longer speaks with his brother MIRAGE after defecting to the Decepticons for ideological reasons. Uses extreme speed to flank enemies on the battlefield. Holo-displacer allows him to project two images of himself to deceive his opponents. Wields a rapid fire armor-piercing dart handgun when he gets in range. Is often hesitant to carry out the brutality expected from MEGATRON.

STRENGTH 6
INTELLIGENCE 8
SPEED 9
ENDURANCE 4
RANK 6
COURAGE 5
FIREPOWER 6
SKILL 8



so whaddaya think?

and before you ask: YES, I hope this can be the first part of a 5-member combiner team. One combiner member per mini-con.

In case any of you want to re-sell the figure, it will include a certificate of authenticity from all the mini-con attendants. Just in case anybody tries to do a replica. Although that will be a difficult thing to do :)

The other "carrot" for this get-together is that this will be the first time a complete collection of Japanese transformers that were ever commercially available will be on display. No, Tony Preto's collection wasn't complete :P Besides, this is 95% mint in box. There will also be various presentations on aspects of transformers history - told from a nordic perspective."
