TFCon have reached out to us to tell us that another high profile guest, joining already announced participants such as Casey Coller is attending TFCon 2018 in Chicago! This time it's Transformers Designer Aaron Archer!

Here's the press release from TFCon:

TFCon wrote:Chicago, Illinois. TFcon USA is pleased to announce that Aaron Archer will join its exciting guest line-up for its upcoming show, which will take place inside the Crowne Plaza Chicago O’Hare Hotel & Conference Center (5440 North River Rd. Rosemont, Illinois 60018); October 26-28, 2018.

As an American Toy Designer, Archer’s spectacular involvement in the Transformers universe is well known amongst fans worldwide. Having designed toys like the Transmetal 2 creations for Cheetor, Iguanus, Dinobot, Optimus Minor and Megaton, Archer became the lead designer for the Transformers brand in 2000 where he played a large role in planning Armada, which was released in 2002. He also played a similar role in developing Energon and Cybertron, as well as Alternators. He even penned story concepts for 3 Unicron Trilogy lines before being promoted 3 times to Vice President of Intellectual Property Development at Hasbro. Archer was also the creative lead for all Transformers partnerships including 4 feature films, 4 video games, 5 animated series, theme park rides and countless publishing projects.

Beyond the Transformers Universe, Archer designed a variety of toys for various lines for Hasbro/Kenner including but not limited to Batman, Jurassic Park and Alien Resurrection while being directly involved with the G.I. Joe brand. More recently, Archer made multiple appearances on both Season 1 and 2 of Netflix’s The Toys That Made Us airing now.

"We are pleased to welcome Aaron Archer back to TFcon USA," says General Manager Colin Douglas. "His work has inspired generations of fans both new and old. His appearance will be warmly welcomed.
