I didn't manage to go to TFNation this year, but I'll definitely go next year. I can't wait to see who they get on the guest list! :D

Mentioned on twitter not long after the announcement, but I'm seriously jonesing to go this year. Made it once to AA back in 2010(?) at the ripe old age of Like Thirteen Or Something, and even then as someone new to the fandom at large I had a great time. Hopefully next year I'll have the time and money to finally attend properly! It seems like an absolute riot, and I'm keen to like, actually talk to people rather than just buy stuff and get overwhelmed like I did all those years ago :lol:

...and yes, I know it's a good while away, mainly posting so that I'll get updates on the thread (and because if I tell people I wanna go, maybe that'll pressure me into actually getting around to it :P )

Transformers Rescue Bots DC Douglas to Attend TFNation 2018

Postby Va'al » Mon Dec 25, 2017 10:10 am

Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
We have a gift to us all from the TFNation HQ - the biggest UK fan convention for Transformers, taking place in Birmingham once more this August 2018 - in the form of their first guest at the event: Transformers Rescue Bots voice actor (and major source of news about the show) DC Douglas!

Better known in Transformers for his work on Chase, he's covered many many roles in his career; take a look below at the announcement, and let us know if you'll be joining this summer!

Operation: First 2018 Guest Acquired!

The first reveal of this new season of TFNation comes from the voice acting world, for fans of all ages: introducing, D.C. Douglas!

Famous in the Transformers franchise for his role as Chase the Police Bot in Rescue Bots, Douglas has been a regular go-to resource for updates about the show itself and is also well known beyond the transforming robot world.

If you're a videogame aficionado, you will recognise him as Legion in the Mass Effect series - a gestalt artificial intelligence unit. Both Chase and Legion were similarly influenced by Leonard Nimoy's approach to Spock, in their respective ways.

He has also appeared in seven Resident Evil games as Albert Wesker, as Kamoshida in Persona 5, Pod 042in Nier: Automata, Azrael in Blazeblue, Zero in Zero Time Dilemma 3, Raven in Tekken 6, and foxy grandpa Gunter in Fire Emblem: Fates.

If cartoons and anime are more your thing, you will have heard him voicing X Drake in One Piece, The Professor in Cyborg 009, Jasley in Mobile Suit Gundam: IBO, Genji Kamogawa in Hajime no ippo, Shori Shibuya in God, Save Our King!, and Colonel Rawls on Regular Show, Superman on Family Guy.

His on camera roles include the seminal cinematographic masterpiece Sharknado 2 (Bud), plus Zepht in Star Trek: Enterprise, Pa Kettle in Z Nation, and Aiden Wexler in SyFy’s Isle of the Dead.

D.C. Douglas will be joining TFNation for the entire duration of the convention, offering autographs, photo opportunities where possible and joining panels over the weekend.

Launch tickets, bedrooms details, further guests and activities will be announced in the coming months. Keep monitoring this frequency.

Musician Stan Bush to Attend TFNation 2018, plus Concert Info

Postby Va'al » Fri Jan 05, 2018 1:04 pm

Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
This latest update from TFNation is bound to make a number of UK and other European fans quite happy: there will be a concert during the event, and its headliner is none other than the man himself - Stan Bush! For the first time in a long run of years (other than two gig appearances in 2007 and 2015), the original soundtracker will be headed across the pond to attend the UK summer event, as both day guest and evening entertainer, for autographs, photo opportunities, and more. Dare you book a ticket once they're released in February?

Read on below for more information, and particularly take notice of the extra fee for the concert, due to the added expense of technical equipment and logistics for the gig itself.

Operation: Dare to Believe!

If you attend TFNation in 2018 you'll have the touch! You'll have the power! Most importantly, you'll also have the Emmy award-winning, Transformers Hall of Famer, Stan Bush!

To Transformers fans, Stan is best known for performing iconic songs "The Touch" and "Dare" which featured prominently in 1986's Transformers: The Movie. He has subsequently released additional tracks inspired by the Cybertronians, perhaps most notably, 2007's "Till All Are One".

As well as appearing on countless releases of Transformers: The Movie, his work can also be heard during the Transformers: War for Cybertron video game.

Of course, there is much more to Stan's arsenal than giant robots! He is an Emmy award-winning artist who has released fourteen studio albums over an incredible 35-year career. His most recent album, "Change the World", was released in 2017 and is available at http://www.stanbush.com and on itunes.

Stan has also lent his considerable talents to various movies such as The Wraith (1986) and Kickboxer (1989). He provided music for the US dub of Sailor Moon and most recently, the Netflix series GLOW. In the video game world, as well as the aforementioned Transformers: War for Cybertron, his work has also been included on Saints Row IV and even Guitar Hero!

We'll be putting Stan right in the eye of the storm for the full weekend of TFNation 2018, where he will be participating in panels, meeting fans and signing autographs at no additional cost.

In addition, Stan has kindly offered to perform a full concert for his fans at TFNation!

The concert will take place on the Saturday evening of the convention, after the conclusion of our "Clubcon" evening entertainment for weekend pass holders. Like all events taking place at TFNation, attendance is strictly subject to availability and room capacity.

We appreciate this may be a once in a lifetime opportunity for many of our attendees so, to ensure the concert is as impressive as it deserves to be, TFNation has hired suitable function space, instruments, a professional audio set up and a full live band. This is an additional event, taking place beyond our usual budget, so to accommodate these extra measures (and to avoid a price rise across all ticket types) there will be an additional concert entrance fee.

Tickets will be available from our website, in addition to regular TFNation packages, on 3rd February 2018. For Saturday only attendees, concert tickets will be £20.00. For full weekend pass holders, concert tickets will be on sale at the reduced price of £15.00.

At this time we do not have plans to open ticket sales to non-attendees, as we believe demand will be extremely high and it is important to us that TFNation attendees have first option to watch Stan in action. We may reassess the position closer to the event, but only if available places and capacity allow.

After all is said and done, Stan Bush will be joining TFNation for the entire duration of the convention, from 17th to 19th August 2018, at a place where dreams survive; the Hilton Birmingham Metropole Hotel!

Launch tickets, bedrooms details, further guests and activities will be announced in the coming months. Keep monitoring this frequency.

Does Stan Bush "touch" anything thats not Transformers related? I dont know nothing much about rock music, but it seems instead of Transformers being a stepping stone for his music career, its become a brick wall. Maybe he should get into celebrity boxing. I would love to see Stan Bush fight Vanilla Ice. :lol:

Writer James Roberts to Attend TFNation 2018, plus Pricing Updates

Postby Va'al » Sun Jan 14, 2018 5:45 am

Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
We have a couple more updates from UK-based Transformers fan convention TFNation, taking place this summer in Birmingham for the third year running, regarding both general pricing (for entry and accommodation) and a returning guest announcement: IDW writer James Roberts!

Tickets and hotel bookings will be on sale as of 3rd February, and you can read more about pricing at this link, and more on the guests below.

Operation: This Machine Writes Comics

A regular guest for the past two years, and a staple name in the new Transformers lore from IDW, we're proud to announce James Roberts' presence at TFNation 2018.

As many current IDW creators, Roberts was a member of the Transmasters UK fan community way back in the day of early Marvel comics. He has been a fan wordsmith ever since, and with All Hail Megatron #15 (2009) and Last Stand of the Wreckers (2010), both next to Nick Roche, he has entered made his mark on the Cybertronian universe.

Currently behind IDW Publishing's Lost Light series next to a number of artists - but mostly Jack Lawrence - and risen to fan-favourite with the series' predecessor More Than Meets The Eye, Roberts has a streak for the dark, the political, cult science-fiction, TV shows, and old New Wave & Britpop music.

He will be signing autographs, breaking hearts, and selling scripts at TFNation 2018.

IDW Artist Jack Lawrence to Attend TFNation 2018

Postby Va'al » Fri Jan 19, 2018 1:03 pm

Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
The latest update from TFNation headquarters brings us another comics guest to the UK Transformers event taking place this August in Birmingham: current regular artist on IDW Publishing's Lost Light, Jack Lawrence! Take a look below at some of his other credits, and make sure to stay tuned as the month changes for room and ticket bookings for the convention.

Operation: Jack and Rule

After the success of his first appearance at TFNation 2017, we are proud and happy to announce the return of artist Jack Lawrence!

One of the several UK-based robot creators hailing from the Transmasters stables - along with Lost Light co-creator James Roberts, also attending the event - Jack has been gracing the interiors and covers of IDW Publishing's fan favourite Transformers title, as well as warming hearts of fans through online presence and event attendance.

Before joining the politically romantic space horror opera that is Lost Light, Jack worked for a wide range of publishers, from Dark Horse to Image, via self-publishing and 2000AD, bringing his skills to characters such as TMNT, Dr Who, Sinister Dexter, and Skylanders.

He is an eager and vocal member of the Dungeons & Dragons community, and table-top gaming in general, and all round nerd. His art can also be found in several collections of reference material for well-love geek franchises, such as Dreamworks' Dragons, Marvel Figurines, and Batman Automobilia.

Jack will be signing autographs, selling sketches and artwork, including commissions, in our guest area all weekend. Launch tickets, bedrooms, pricing, further guests and activities will be announced in the coming months. Keep monitoring this frequency.
