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!

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.

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.

Since the announcement of the dates for the second round of Pete's Robot Convention - June 9th and 10th this year - there has been a steady flow of news from the convention's Facebook and Twitter pages. Fellow Seibertronian Sabrblade has gone to the trouble of collating each news post from the original 'Round 2' announcement in September 2017, to the most recent reveal of a Pretender shell for Generations Gears - available as a customization-class figure for attendees to create. Other tidbits from the last few months include the creation of a new company for the convention (Night Shining, Inc.), a new name (RoboCon), and an earlier announcement of another exciting customization-class figure (Shattered Glass Swoop, using Power of the Primes Deluxe Swoop as the base and sporting a new face-sculpt exclusively for the event)!

For the full details check out Sabrblade's comprehensive summary below, and if the convention sparks your interest, you can visit their website for more info on the con and pre-registration. And as always, keep an eye on Seibertron.com for any Transformer news - past, present and future!

Sabrblade wrote:September 27, 2017 - More details about the con:
Pete’s Robot Convention is back next summer for Round 2!

Did you know that from 2005-2016 there were over 200 BotCon and Transformers Collectors' Club exclusives made? During that time samples would be produced to confirm if this was the version of the exclusive that should be put in to production. Often times there were small changes, other times pretty extensive ones. Well, if you have ever wondered what the early version of a Transformers exclusive looked like you will now not only be able to see these very rare items, but you will also have the chance to own one!

We will have an amazing display set up during the weekend showcasing pre-production and final samples for most all of the exclusives as well as offering these for sale starting Saturday at the Exhibitor Preview Night!

You don't have to wait until next June to get your first look at this incredible selection however. This weekend at the Cincinnati Toy and Collectible show we will be previewing several of the early version exclusives as well as raffling off one of the great toys to one lucky winner! Be sure to stop by and see us. You can check out all the details for the show here https://www.facebook.com/events/1726452517394704

As always, stay tuned for more updates and make sure to visit our website PetesRoboCon.com. If you haven’t already, make sure to like us here on Facebook and follow us on Twitter https://twitter.com/Petes_Robo_Con. Can’t wait to see everyone June 9-10 at the Cincinnati Marriott at RiverCenter!

Also thanks to Hobbymizer administrator Stanley Cheung, we have some equally nice, clean, high-definition shots of the latest reveal from the Hasbro - Takara Tomy collaboration on the Transformers Movie Masterpiece live, with MPM-6 Ironhide - which you can check out below!

The shots were taken at the private press event during the Hong Kong Toys and Games Fair 2018, as first reported here, and include the figure in robot and vehicle mode, plus comparisons with the Bumblebee Movie Masterpiece toy, and close-ups from a number of angles in both robot and vehicle modes. You can compare the photos below with the official images we received from Hasbro here!

Thanks to Hobbymizer administrator Stanley Cheung, who contacted us directly, we have some nice, clean, high-definition shots of the ladiesman217 seeker - which you can check out below! The shots include the figure in robot and vehicle mode, plus comparisons with a previous version of the figure and the Bumblebee Movie Masterpiece toy, as well as some close-ups of the spinning blade wheel weapon.

As promised yesterday, the Hong Kong Toy Fair did indeed have the full reveal from Hasbro of figures from the Transformers Movie Masterpiece line - though it was a private toy media press event at the Royal Pacific Hotel, and not at the Fair itself, and with MPM Bumblebee present as a comparison yardstick - featuring a good look at MPM-5 Barricade (whose thread can be found here) and the newcomer Autobot heavy weapons specialist: MPM-6 Ironhide!

The images and video below are from the same Hobbymizer Facebook page that broke the news yesterday, and we hope you can enjoy taking a look for yourselves, as the new Ironhide is compared to Bumblebee and a previous version (the leader class?) of the movie character.

According to the Hobbymizer Hong Kong Facebook page, this year's Hong Kong Toy Fair (taking place all of this week, until Thursday 11th) will once more see a special reveal from Hasbro alongside a whole load of officially licensed Transformers merchandise and products.

You might remember that the 2017 edition brought us the official announcement and reveal of both Movie Masterpiece Bumblebee and Transformers: The Last Knight Shadow Spark Optimus Prime. It looks like this year may continue the movie trend with MPM-05 Barricade finally fully shown, plus a special 'secret' second figure to show up - which may very well be MPM-06(?) Ironhide, as previously reported here. The announcements should take place on Tuesday 9th during a press conference with Hasbro at 5 pm Hong Kong time (4am EST/ 1am PST) so stay tuned to Seibertron.com for the coverage!

Hobbymizer Teaser:

There will be a press conference tomorrow, in addition to known mpm05 roadblocks, there will be a very secret mpm06 global exhibition.

Our Hobbymizer team will be on the scene with you!

What exactly is the mpm06 going to be?

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.

Transmission ID: 00005
TFNation_2018
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.

It has been a while since we last mentioned the Transformers sponsored race car from Dawson Racing. By way of Racer.com we have learned that it seems that it will be missing out on Rolex 24 for the 2018 IMSA Season-Opener. This is what Ian Dawson had to say as to why exactly it will be missing:
"We've had a few delays, as often happens with a new team, new car, new infrastructure," said Ian Dawson. "Although we would love to commence the season at the Rolex 24 At Daytona, it is also one of the most grueling races in the world. We decided that rather than rush with a new car not yet tested, new drivers, new team, to try to make the Roar Before the 24 test days at Daytona the first week of January and then the race just over two weeks later, we would delay our race start."
Ian Dawson was further on the record of saying that:
"We would like to do a proper testing program in the U.S. with our new Onroak Ligier Gibson LMP2 in January and February, and go into the 12 Hours of Sebring in March with a solid team structure," Dawson added. "This will also allow us to finalize further details with our core partners and best be able to enter the season in a position of strength."

You can see the full article here in any event. Unfortunately it just sounds like the race car has a lot of testing to go to perfect itself. In any case we wish Dawson Racing team the best of luck in their quest and look forward to more future information and when the Transformers car itself will race!
