Still sad about Botcon ending? Are you bummed about Hascon not coming back until 2019? Well, there is some good news on the Transformers-themed convention front. TFCon is the largest fan-run convention in the world, and their USA convention will be held from October 26-28, 2018 in Rosemont, Illinois (a Chicago suburb).

TFCon began in 2002 as a Canadian Transformers fan convention, and expanded to the USA in 2014. Their most recent convention was in Washington, D.C. earlier this fall. While no guests or dealer information for 2018 are available yet, judging solely by their past guest lists, they should have some great appearances. Previous guests have included all manner of big names in the Transformers world- 2016's TFCon USA had voice actors Michael Bell, Gregg Berger, Garry Chalk, Richard Newman, Jon Bailey, Jason Marnocha, and Frank Todaro; from the Transformers comic book worlds of both G1 and IDW, Bob Budiansky, Nick Roche, Alex Milne, Sara Pitre-Durocher, Andrew Griffith, Casey Coller, Brendan Cahill, Corin Howell, Josh Perez, Josh Burcham and Matt Moylan.

Have any Seibertronians been to a TFCon, either in the USA or Canada? Are you excited for this news and already planning for 2018? Let us know below!

I've always wanted to attend something like this, but if I go, my then 10 yr. Old will definitely be in attendance. Is it ok for someone that age? Also, what are ticket prices Like? I don't live that far out of Chicago, and am sure I can find lodging, so no concerns there. Man, I am kind of excited at just the possibility of going to a event like this and having my first one be a TF one too...that would be kind of awesome.

I've been to a couple of Botcons, but not an TFCon, I can say that Botcons were kid friendly, and I took my kid when it was here in Pasadena CA. I'm hoping to make it this year to the TFCon myself. It's a flight for me though.
