Are they actually asking $100 for that in the non-attending set?

If I could rewind my purchases, I'd certainly pick up i-Gears. I have nothing against their original products, it's some of the KOs that are a bit tricky for me to appreciate. To each their own I suppose. But yeah, I'm not surprised IT hasn't made anything since. They've just straight up took their purchases and ran. The HeadRobots is a bit of a step down from the D.I.A. Commander back in '09, but hey, not too many things will top that.

I think you guys will like the set this year. I'll be going again this year, it's always been well done in the past and like others I've made many friends there over the years.

There's one tinsy thing they are leaving out of their announcement just yet from what I hear, but if it's true then it's sure to get everyone on board this year!

Looks like I'm gonna have to hit up one of my Cannuck hook ups! Looking forward to Fort Max!! Whooo! Love head robots stuff and like the fact that we get an additional surprise.

I really want the exclusive but am in the Southern USA. If anyone is going and might be able to pick up or part with a head robot, shoot me a PM. They're selling a non-attending package, but it's $110... but the figure is around $40 if you attend.

Fort Max? Is that who Stronghold is (the head certainly suggested this, but I have to imagine it's going to take a bunch of Reprolabels and still won't look right) ?

Still, I'd rather HeadRobots just put out their Voyager Bludgeon head first.

I'm just glad that the 3rd party product this year is a Headrobots figure. I hated last year's figure with a passion. I'm looking forward to having this on my US Onslaught, and I liked the head when it was done for Hardhead and I think this will be pretty bad ass for "Stronghold".

And my TFCon figure is now secured!! ;)

TFcon pre-registration is now online

Looking forward to this year's show! Stronghold looks cool.

EDIT, looks like the link was already posted, but I missed it. Oh well.

Anyway, I'm looking forward to this year's show. I've been every year since 2004.

Just yesterday TFCon unveiled "Stronghold", an exclusive deco of HeadRobots Hothead. Today, TFCon upped the ante by revealing some of Stronghold's backstory:

TFcon 2011 registration goes is now online. You can pre-register online for TFcon 2011 via this link. Preregistration will run until July 16th at 12pm.

The TFcon 2011 exclusive is Stronghold, produced by Head Robots. Designed for the Universe Onslaught mold and cross compatible with Generation 1 Headmasters, Stronghold will be limited to 700 pieces. This is a high-quality upgrade kit that contains a transforming head with ball joints and clear blue eyepiece, two photon rifles, one assault cannon, and a backpack. The backpack features many mounting points so the guns can be configured in many ways. This exclusive will come with a bonus set of Reprolabels that will transform your old action figure into an all new character for your collection.

In command of a lost band of Transformers from before the Great War, Stronghold must now deal with the likes of an escapee war criminal in the form of Zarak. Armed with his Master Cannon and double blasters, this leader of the fabled Head Robots is a force to be reckoned with now that he holds the plans to the mysterious project Maximus...

Now that some details have been clarified regarding Stronghold I've ordered the non-attendee package. I'm gonna convert my Onslaught into Stronghold and re-integrate him into my displayed TFs.
