In just 2 days, Retcon 2017, Sweden's new Transformers Convention, will kick off starting at 11:00! The convention is set to host the likes of Simon Furman and Nick Roche, and will include some items that will be available for purchase. A limited number of walk-ins are still available, just go to info@retcon.se to ask about being a walk-in. Check out the update talking about the coming weekend, and take a peek at the Grimlock art form Spotlight: Shockwave that will available among other things during the weekend, drawn by Nick Roche!

The Nordic region is getting a Transformers convention again!

On Saturday 29 April 2017, we open the doors for RetCon 2017, and a day of great fun! The convention takes place at the hotel Good Morning+ Helsingborg in southern Helsingborg, just 1,5 km away from the ferry terminal and the central station. We have arranged with discounts at the hotel so that you can get your room cheaper during the weekend!

We are working hard to bring you the best possible programme, making sure there is something for just about everyone. There will be celebrity guests, toy vendors, an artist alley, quizzes, competitions, activities, exclusive figures, an exclusive comic, panels, hang-outs, and a lot more!

We have arranged with two special guests: none other than IDW writer/artist/legend Nick Roche and the living legend Simon Furman, who will be on site for RetCon both for the friday pre-hang-out and all of the main convention day, answering questions, writing autographs, taking pictures, and more!

The main convention opens at 11:00 and closes at 18:00.

For pre-registered attendees only there will also be a hang-out on Friday evening at 18:00 as well as on Saturday evening at 20:00.

Pre-registration has now closed. A limited number of walk-ins will still be admitted for the main convention, please send an e-mail to info@retcon.se to check if there are still any slots left.

I really liked the idea of redesigning the Dinobots as if they were Beast Wars characters; it worked so well for Spotlight: Shockwave. Kinda wish they'd kept these and rampaged around Jurassic Park :lol:

Never liked that teeth mouthplate thing Grimlock had going though. It just looked off and a lot of the time ended up confusing me.

True Beast Dinosaur Modes just made sense in those Spotlights and Hearts of Steel. I wish they had stayed too.
