Wichita, Kansas - TFEXPO ANNOUNCES DATES FOR 2014 SHOW AND FIRST GUEST NEIL ROSS
TFExpo is proud to announce our fourth Transformers convention in Wichita, Kansas coming next summer! TFExpo 2014 will be held at the Holiday Inn at Kellogg and Rock Road August 1st-3rd. That's right, in celebration of thirty years of our favorite transforming robots, TFExpo 2014 will be a full weekend show!

Transformers News: TFExpo 2014: August 1st-3rd in Wichita, Kansas with Neil Ross!

To help us celebrate, we're bringing in fan favorite voice actor Neil Ross as our first guest! Fans of Transformers Generation 1 (and many other 80's cartoons) will remember Neil's many distinctive voices. Neil performed the roles of Springer, Slag, Bonecrusher, and Hook in Transformers, as well as Dusty and Shipwreck in the original G.I.Joe cartoon. And he voiced both Keith and Pidge in Voltron! But that's only scratching the surface of Neil's long and varied career. For a complete list of credits, head to http://www.imdb.com.

There will be many more exciting announcements in the months ahead, so stay tuned! Our website will be renovated soon for TFExpo 2014, and then we will open pre-registration for the show. In the meantime, like TFExpo on Facebook and follow us on Twitter for all the latest updates.

We will see you at TFExpo 2014!

Dang! Wichita isn't even too far from me. If it wasn't for these pesky kids, I could go. ;-)

One of these days, I'll make it to a TF function of some kind.

Thanks for the update, Va'al.

Could you not bring them along? Do they not have reduced entry for younger children? :-?

I'm pretty sure they'd enjoy it, despite the majority of overwhelming nerds, and most of the many talented guests love kids too. Steve Blum was amazing at Auto Assembly last summer.

You know, that's not a bad idea. I will have to look more into it. My son would be over the moon with joy honestly. My daughter would probably be interested in the Transformer stuff for a while and then be perfectly happy looking at all the craziness going on. Hmm... That is really tempting.

I don't know what's gong on, but I do know that these toys need more color than that. >:oP Are these like Action Masters figures, a robot and a weapon with a name in one pack.

I thought they are like micron-arms. If so, I think they look pretty cool for that. :BOT:

They split apart into a whole bunch of weapons with 5 mm pegs! I think they're pretty cool! Check out their website.

I kinda want them to go with my standard and KS exclusive versions, but there's no way for me to actually make it to TF Expo.

Thanks for the feedback, guys. We're actually using these as a registration incentive, so they'll go to registrants first. And then we'll open them up for purchase at the show. If there are any left when the show is over, we'll put them up for sale on our website at tf-expo.com.

While Chopp-or strikes me as very uninspired, Carbearator reminds me a lot of Catgut, the partner for ActionMaster Treadshot. Since Treadshot was my favorite out of my ActionMaster collection when I was a kid this means I give this particular figure a "thumbs-up". I'm going to have to check out the web-site and see more of these. I'm liking the concept of the figures being configurable in several different ways and having multiple weapon forms available. While I would say this is something Hasbro should pick up on, I see little kids losing the small parts inside of two heart-beats so this probably wouldn't be a good idea for Hasbro's regular market.

I want to write a script for them but I don't have any plans to go to the TFExpo. I'll save it for my comic that people are losing faith in. :-(

TTExpo is a ton of fun. Smaller in scale but awesome experience. Last year we got to watch Transformers animated movie with Flint Dille and Gregg Berger. If anyone is on the fence about this one you should come. I've been looking forward to it all year.

I know "the cartoons" means just TF, but suddenly all my brain wants to put together is a Shipwreck/Katana team-up.
