We are honored to welcome Transformers creator Bob Budiansky to TFcon 2012 for his first ever Canadian appearance. Mr. Budiansky is responsible for much of the writing of the original Marvel Transformers comic, and conceived the names of most of the original Transformers including Megatron. He also wrote the vast majority of the descriptive tech spec biographies printed on the Transformers toy packages that Hasbro produced in the 1980s, giving each character it’s own unique personality.
Mr. Budiansky will be taking part in a Q&A panel and autograph session with the attendees of the Canadian Transformers Collectors Convention.

But when I found out he wrote the original bios and tech specs, plus noted some of the other great comics he wrote... I had to rethink my opinion. Bob made some of the most important influences shaping the franchise and characters we love, and he's a SUPER nice guy at the conventions. I'm always glad to see him coming out, and have to give the man his due, now.

Tell me about it. It's actually cheaper to fly to England from Vancouver than it is to Ontario. So annoying. I'd really like to go to this TFCon.
The convention centre in Vancouver would be the perfect spot for it. The FanFare convention did really well. It was the first event of it's kind here in Van so i hope the convention centre gets on somebodies radar to maybe have a TFCon here.

Due to the sale of 3rd party figures at TFcon the Hasbro New Product Preview and Q/A has been pulled from our programming. Hasbro Canada is still scheduled to attend TFcon 2012 and will have a product display and interact with the fans. We at TFcon apologize for any inconvenience and thank Hasbro Canada for all their help over the years. You can find below the official statement from Hasbro’s Corporate Communications team:
“Although it was communicated by TFcon that Hasbro would host a panel at TFcon this year, Hasbro will unfortunately not be able to participate in a panel. However, we continue to look forward to meeting fans on the convention floor on Saturday.”
