Operation: The One That Got Away

One of the returning guests to TFNation 2018 is currently only involved in Transformers by the series of variant covers for ongoing IDW Publishing comics series Transformers: Lost Light, but Nick Roche still holds a dear place in the fandom since his noteworthy debut on Spotlight: Shockwave (as artist) and Spotlight: Kup (as artist and writer).

Another of the original Transmasters UK fan community members, during the era of early Marvel comics, Roche has collaborated with writer James Roberts (also attending the TFNation) on fan-favourite Last Stand of the Wreckers, and took it solo, with Josh Burcham on colours, on its moving sequel - Sins of the Wreckers.

Since then, Roche has been seen mostly outside of the printed realm of Transformers comics, working as co-creator and artist on one-shots Monster Motors and Monster Motors: The Curse of Minivan Helsing (with Brian Lynch), and interior artist on Marvel’s Revolutionary War, Revolutionary War: Death’s Head II, New Warriors, and most recently Spider-Man: Renew Your Vows (with Jody Houser). He also regularly contributes cover art to Marvel and IDW comics, including the likes of Clue, Deadpool vs The Punisher, Doctor Who, Robotech, TMNT, and more.

Nick Roche will be attending all weekend, and offering autographs and sketches to attendees – though please check in advance for availability for personalised artwork. You can find out more about his pre-order list at his blog (https://nickroche.blogspot.co.uk/) closer to TFNation 2018.

We've received another email update from the TFNation team, and it contains another guest announcement for this year's Birmingham, UK, convention! In addition to their already star-studded list of guests, including Nick Roche, James Roberts, and Stan Bush, original Transformers comic artist Mike Collins will be in attendance! You might know him from his involvement in the original Marvel TF comics, or his work with the Transformers Ladybird series of books, or his storyboard work for Doctor Who and Sherlock! Check out the full guest description, provided by TFNation, below!

Operation: Mike of Iron

A new guest joining us for TFNation 2018, but by no means a newcomer to the Transformers scene is artist Mike Collins! Mike was the hands behind the Man of Iron (1985/87), the first story in the Marvel comics originating in the UK, and several more, eventually also co-writing Crisis of Command! (1985-86), which introduced the recurring self-doubting character trait in Optimus Prime.
Despite leaving the comics by the end of 1985, he didn’t leave Transformers entirely behind: along with Mike Farmer, he illustrated the first four Ladybird Transformers books, which became the gateway to Transformers fiction for a number of children at the time.

Mike continued to contribute to other comics, though moving into Action Force, the European precursor to G.I. Joe, which also included recent returner and fan-favourite Action Man. Mike later made his way to 2000AD, Marvel and DC, and his art can be found in the pages of Flash, Teen Titans, and The Uncanny X-Men – where he first introduced the questionable but charming character of Gambit. He has also worked on the likes of Star Trek, Wonder Woman, several 2000AD titles, and as of 2005, returning to UK material with Doctor Who Magazine, and the two Doctor Who original Graphic Novels published by the BBC.

A name you might also know from outside of comics, Mike has provided storyboards for TV and films including Doctor Who, Horrid Henry, and Sherlock.

Mike will be present at TFNation 2018 all weekend, signing autographs, talking fandom, and probably willing to sketch some art for attendees

Operation: Putting the U in Colourist

With the new year in full swing, the TFNation team is happy to announce another returning guest to our ever-expanding roster: comics colourist and writer John-Paul Bove!

Known to many as JP, he is currently recolouring classic Marvel UK stories for Hachette’s Transformers: The Definitive Generation One Collection, and has been the main colour artist for IDW Publishing’s Transformers: ReGeneration One – the continuation of the original Marvel US series – plus the Drift: Empire of Stone mini-series, several BotCon / FunPub comics, and an entire collection of cover work with several artists in the Transformers world for IDW. Outside of Transformers, his visual work can be found on titles such as G.I. Joe, Dr Who, Action Man, and Judge Dredd, while his writing includes the BotCon 2016 ‘Dawn of the Predacus’ comic, Panini’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and creator-owned horror one-shot UnEarth.

JP will be attending all weekend, and offering his skills and services to fans - if you’re picking up an art commission at TFNation, make sure to book him early and get it coloured at the event!

TFNation headquarters has sent out another announcement about their guests for this summer's 2018 edition of the UK fan Transformers convention, and in the spirit of the 'lesser known' franchises being celebrated, they secured none other than the voice of Megatron from Transformers: Robots in Disguise (2001)! Check out more info below.

Operation: A Handful of Voices

The second voice actor that TFNation is proud to present for 2018 hails from the land of the early 2000s, and the series that some will argue is called Car Robots, when we all really know it as Robots in Disguise (2001) - please join us in welcoming the man behind Megatron, leader of the Predacons: Daniel Riordan!

As well as voicing the purple leader Megatron, Daniel remained at the mic for the gold and white upgrade Galvatron, and is so far the only voice actor famous for lending his talents to a robot, jet, bat, two-headed dragon, giant flying hand, roadster, winged griffin, one-headed dragon, hydroplane, and an elephant, all while only really voicing the same character.

In a fun twist, he also voiced Omega Prime, the combined form of Optimus Prime and Ultra Magnus and leader of the Autobot side, opponent and eventual vanquisher of Galvatron in the final episode of the series.

In other Transformers appearances you may recognise, Daniel was behind the 2007 videogame based on the Paramount live-action series, and specifically, the Decepticon characters of Bonecrusher and Shockwave. He has also been involved in several videogame franchises as secondary and additional character voices, with the likes of Final Fantasy XIII, Mass Effect III, Age of Empires III, Skyrim, and more.

On screen, both big and small, he is well known for his roles in Dreamgirls, Jingle All The Way, The Adventures of Captain Zoom in Outer Space, and a brief presence in Avatar: The Last Airbender and The Wild Thornberrys.

Daniel Riordan will be present all of the TFNation 2018 weekend, signing autographs, available for quick photo opportunities, and eager to meet fans of his work and of Transformers in general!

Courtesy of the TFNation HQ, we have another guest update for their third fan convention taking place this summer in Birmingham, UK, on 17-19 August - and it's none other than IDW Publishing Transformers comics artist Alex Milne! Read more below, and book your tickets now.

TFNation_2018
Operation: The Art Bringer

Another returning guest to the 2018 edition of TFNation is the fan-beloved artist from the big cold white North, Alex Milne!

Milne has been working as a creator for Transformers since the days of Devil’s Due Press’ GI Joe vs the Transformers, various collaborations with Fun Publications and eventually moving to regular, serialised work with Dreamwave and IDW Publishing. As the regular co-creator on Transformer: More Than Meets the Eye, Milne has rendered hearts and tears in painstaking detail, bringing some of the more expressive robot faceplates to the pages of comics.

Alongside and after MTMTE, Milne has provided covers for a range of IDW Publishing comics, Transformers and elsewhere, as well as providing interior art for an issue of Transformers: Lost Light. His most recent collaboration saw him partner once more with writer John Barber (and Christos Gage) on the prequel mini-series Rom vs The Transformers: Shining Armor - but the perhaps bigger news is his presence as artist for the upcoming Unicron: Darkest Hour #0 Free Comic Book Day issue due in May 2018.

Alex Milne will be signing autographs, selling artwork, and attempting to complete commissions at TFNation 2018, as he is always in extremely high demand.

Operation: Damn, He’s Good

TFNation is proud to present another voice acting guest for the 2018 edition, and we roll over to the live-action movie universe and the media that spun out of the Paramount series. Join us in giving a warm welcome to voice actor André Sogliuzzo!

Lending his talents to the character of Sideswipe in Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, Sogliuzzo has also been behind the scenes for the well-received video game Transformers: Devastation, portraying the likes of Scavenger, Thundercracker, and one of the unnamed Seekers found in the game. Most recently, he has featured in the animated series Robots in Disguise, as the voice of Scavenger Clawtrap.

You may also recognise him from a number of other video game franchises, such as Skyrim, Everquest II, and Scarface: The World is Yours. For fans and followers of animated series and cartoons, you will have found Sogliuzzo in G.I. Joe: Renegades (as Major Bludd), Avatar: The Last Airbender (as Hakoda and King Bumi), Courage the Cowardly Dog, the Stuart Little TV series, and will soon be heard in the upcoming Spyro Reignited Trilogy.

He has also been a regular actor for the Star Wars franchise, appearing as various characters in the Knights of the Old Republic games, and as Commander Cody (and others) in the version of the Star Wars: Clone Wars series directed by Genndy Tartakovsky, plus a number of voices in the recently concluded Star Wars: Rebels.

André Sogliuzzo will be present for all of the TFNation 2018 weekend, signing autographs, available for photo opportunities, and ready to meet fans of Transformers, voice acting, his work, and the franchises he’s been a part of!

Scott was also co-writing the second IDW/Hasbro crossover event First Strike, and has been behind the Transformers Prime: Rage of the Dinobots and Beast Hunters mini-series.

Working as assistant writer of animated series Transformers: Prime, Robots in Disguise and Rescue Bots, she has also directly contributed to bringing the character of Windblade into the animated universe too (in Robots in Disguise).You will find her work on several other animated series, such as GI Joe: Renegades, and most notably Marvel’s Ultimate Spider-Man, Avengers Assemble, Guardians of the Galaxy and the upcoming Marvel Rising: Secret Warriors.

Back in comics, Scott has published for some of the major publishers in the business, with the likes of Green Arrow (DC), Guardians of the Galaxy (Marvel), Wonder Woman (DC), and Power Rangers (Boom! Studios) on her resumé, and creator-owned projects such as Toil &Trouble (Boom! Studios), The City on the Other Side (First Second), and more. Her upcoming work will be seen in the pages of DC comics' Batgirl, starting with issue #25 in July 2018!

Mairghread Scott will be present at TFNation 2018 all weekend, signing books, talking Starscream, raising dark stories, and talking to fans of her writing – including those still saddened by the end of Till All Are One.

The next guest to join the TFNation line-up hails from the artistic and creative realms of the toy world, and has been behind the majority of the Transformers brand all the way up to 2013, and has been known to the fandom under a number of names - but today, we welcome him as Aaron Archer!

For more than 20 years at Kenner and Hasbro, Archer has built worlds, storylines, and characters for iconic properties including Transformers, G.I.Joe, Star Wars, Batman, Jurassic Park and Alien. You will be able to hear from him directly, as a toy professional, in the 2018 Netflix documentary series The Toys That Made Us - with the Transformers episode due to debut in May 2018 – and of course at TFNation 2018.

During his 13 years on the Transformers team, Archer collaborated on the design on hundreds of toys, and served as the Creative Lead for all Transformers partnerships, shaping stories, character development, and world-building over four live-action feature films, four video games, five animated series, theme park rides, and countless publishing projects.

His favorite personal design work includes the Unicron Trilogy, Alternators, Mini-cons, the Transformers Masterpiece line and much more. He continues to create monsters and robots mostly in his personal publishing efforts. He has also offered his services as an illustrator and toy designer, to the likes of Star Wars: Episode I; G.I. Joe RAH; Kenner Batman: The Animated Series; Legends of the Dark Knight; Total Justice, Alien: Resurrection, Jurassic Park 3.

Aaron Archer will be present at TFNation 2018 all weekend, talking toys, possibly sketching, weaving stories and chatting backgrounds with all attendees!

It's nice to see TFNation going beyond the usual "Two or three voice actors and about twelve IDW comic people" line-up with their guests, it shows how much they've grown since starting. I do regret not going to TFNation last year, and as the old saying goes, absence makes the heart grow fonder. Part of me hopes they'll announce a Beast Wars voice actor for this year, but even if they don't, I'm still excited.

Operation: The Funny Papers

Joining the line-up of comics guests for 2018, TFNation is pleased to announce the presence of another UK based artist – well known to fans of the original Marvel UK Transformers comics series – Lew Stringer!

Famous predominantly for his humour work, he was a stable component of the Marvel UK Transformers issues, providing a light-hearted relief to the stories in the form of two featured strips: Robo-Capers and Combat Colin (initially in the pages of Action Force, the UK incarnation of G.I. Joe, then replacing Robo-Capers in Transformers).

His very first venture onto the comics stage was Brickman, which ran from the 1970s up until 2009 in various forms. Stringer is well known in the UK for his work as an independent comics creator, but also for his work appearing in the pages of The Beano and The Dandy weekly kids’ comic magazines, alongside other licensed magazines such as Spider-Man, Epic, Lego Adventures and more. Internationally, his work has appeared in the likes of Elephantmen and Grindhouse in the US market, Herman Hedning in Sweden, and Nemi in Norway.

Thanks to his comics work as a creator, Stringer is well-versed in the history of the British comics industry and scene, and regularly offers insights, analyses, and discussions of current and past trends on his blog, Blimey! It’s Another Blog about Comics!

Lew Stringer will be attending TFNation 2018 all weekend, talking capers, silly jokes, and sketching for fans of his work, as well as discussing comics history in general!

Operation: Heavy Metal Guys

Our latest presence for the line-up at TFNation 2018 features another comics addition from IDW Publishing, and what is perhaps the latest addition to the latter’s Transformers universe: Japan-based artist Kei Zama!

Zama’s stylistic influences are partially rooted in the heavy, dark, inked pages of British comics periodical 2000AD (of Judge Dredd fame), and her take on iconic Transformers characters such as Wreck-Gar, and even Optimus Prime himself, have proven a hit with readers of the latter's eponymous ongoing series, written by John Barber and with colours by Josh Burcham, after an initial stint on variant covers alone – some of which have also graced the front of Verse Comics’ Transformers-themed clothing.

Beyond Transformers, but not robots entirely, Zama has worked on IDW’s Atomic Robo providing cover art, Japanese imprint Sparklight comics, Marvel’s Scarlet Witch and fulfilling a long-dreamed ambition, 2000AD, with aPat Mills penned Blackblood story. Her blog and website are regularly updated with her work and appearances, for those curious about more mechs, monsters, and ‘heavy metal guys’.

Kei Zama will be attending TFNation 2018 all weekend, entertaining guests and fans with sketches, autographs, metal talk, cowboy hats, and possible commission art!
