I would so love to go after all the work I put into this and the pass they offered me but it would cost me $750 just for travel and lodging. :( I've already got 2 other major conventions to attend as well as Anime Blues Con here in Memphis which will be our first anime convention. I will be moderator as well as a guest on the voice actors' panels and the 80s cartoon panel which I'll be showing off some of my videos.

This looks awsome! I just booked my room. This is going to be my first TFcon, I've been to BotCon a few times before, is it much different? Canada was actually cheaper and closer than Pasadena, so why not? Anyway hope to see some of you there! :CON:

Awesome! A panel devoted simply to 3rd parties. Can't wait to read what they announce. Either that or this is a ploy to lure them out for Hasbro to take a shot at them, legally speaking of course.

It's always great to see Alex.

As a bit of a bonus the Central Canada Comic Con Drift #4 Exclusive Comic from Alex Milne will be available to be purchased at TFCon for $10 each.

When Alex designed the cover art he made the back cover as a sketch cover! For a small fee Alex will do a character sketch on that back cover making your Drift #4 Exclusive a one of a kind collectible!

Here's the cover art followed by the sketch of Deadlock, Drift before he was Drift :)

TFcon welcomes back 80s Toy Expo.

TFcon’s expansion to a 2 day convention was made possible through merging with the Canadian 80s Toy Expo on the Sunday of the event. This was necessary due to many dealers completely selling out of merchandise on the Saturday requiring a dealer room restock if a 2nd day was to be added. This year is no different with the Sunday bringing us Canada’s largest dealer room for 80s toy related merchandise consisting of dealers selling Super Heroes (Marvel, DC etc), Star Wars (new and vintage), Transformers (vintage and Japanese imports), G.I. Joe (vintage and modern), Masters of the Universe (vintage and classics), Wrestling, and tons of other Action Figures and collectibles. We will also welcome new guests to the convention on the Sunday.

I wish TFcon moved around like Botcon, then I could afford to go if they held it in my city. It's actually cheaper to fly to most places in the US (California especially) than it is to fly to Ontario. :(

A quick question to some who attend this canada convention.

Does Hasbro/Takara ever show any newer TF toys (test shots/proto types) that they didn't show at botcon's convention in the same year?

I ask because it would be kinda cool/awesome to see never before seen TF toys test )shots/proto types) at both TFCON & SDCC this year.

TFcon has announced it's second convention exclusive, Head Robots Toxin, limited to 100 pieces.

The 2nd TFcon 2011 exclusive is Toxin!

When Lord Zarak needed someone to help copy the Headmaster and Transtector technology that Stronghold pioneered, he turned to Toxin. Toxin biggest claim to fame back on Cybertron was the mass cloning process of Reflector which bulked out Megatron‘s army during the early days of the war. He made 3 special clones for himself Edge, Shield and Bullet (Dubbed the NIGHT OPS SFX) as his hired goons to help get him needed “materials” for future experiments.
All was going well for Toxin till he along with Lord Zarak got captured by the Autobots. His personal Transtector body was destroyed in the scuffle and now he hopes to break free and commandeer a new one.

Produced by Head Robots, you can now give your headless G1 figures a much needed upgrade. This figure is limited to only 100 pieces and limited to one per attendee.
