It's good to see them expand into the US. I suspect with many people frustrated at Botcon, that this will be a very popular convention.

You suspect correctly. Unless the BotCon set is an absolute knockout, I'm passing on it this year. I do want to go to a convention, and I heard good things about TFCon. I also have never been to Chicago and it's half the distance that Pasadena is. So, given further information, I think I may just go to this convention instead of BotCon.

For you history buffs out there ... this is where BotCon 1996 was held (my first BotCon) and right next door to where OTFCC 2003 and 2004 were held.

Charticon in Charlotte, NC is on the East Coast and a damn fun convention to go to. I went this year. :)

If that's not close enough, you also have NJCC, NYCC, and Retrocon.

Him and many other comic writers for TF have spun some seriously awesome stories.........the comics to me are what keeps TF fresh in my life......

the bay movies get worse and worse the more u read the comics..
im always wondering, why couldnt they do this in the movies or that etc.........

I hope one day Bay gets crushed by a garbage truck so he can never do another movie again. Hire a good director, and maybe get some of the comic guys on as writers........

then they will make 2 billion instead of 1(which i still cant believe those piles of feces made that much) and fans alike will be please......

alas a boy can dream...........

till that dream comes true, ill keep reading R.I.D AND M.T.M.T.E

Con's are tons of fun. This is the first TFCon Chicago, so nobody quite knows what it will be like yet. But the fact that there is a convention in the midwest, a lot of people are anticipating on going since Botcon hasn't been in this neck of the woods in several years.

Besides the guests, the dealer room should be huge as most of the major TF dealers such as TFSource and BBTS are located in Minnesota and Wisconsin respectively, so they should both be in attendance.

Lastly, geeking out and meeting other Seibertronians and having a big party every night in Chi-town.

Fans of the movie 'verse or just fans of police car Decepticons, will be happy to see that the Barricade car used in the 2007 Transformers movie will be at TFCon Chicago 2014. TFCon runs October 24-26 at the Hyatt Regency O'Hare.

The 2005 Mustang Saleen 2007 Extreme S281 prototype known as Barricade used in the 2007 movie Transformers will be in attendance at TFcon Chicago 2014. There were 3 cars made for the film, with this vehicle being one of the primary camera vehicles. This Barricade was used in the scene where Shia LaBeouf was struck by the drivers side door and was knocked off his bike, as well as in the warehouse chase scene where the vehicles crash through the window.

Cant remember where I read it, but someone got in trouble for driving a Baricade replica even though it didn't have roof lights or say "police" on it. I think they're having a hard time auctioning the original off for that reason. All you can really do with it is put it in an auto museum next to Ecto-1 and the Batmobile.

There was a guy with a maserati done up like this, as well as another Mustang in Nevada somewhere.

Both had issues, but were cleared. I also have my car done up like this, sort of. Without "Police" on the doors. I got stopped once and they had me to cover up the word police on the small purple badges on the front quarter panels. Thats it. I know Transformers Cars has a nice replica of this and they purchased the Prowl car from someone on this site. I dont know if this Barricade is theirs or not.
