Can anyone figure out how this is different from the block announced in April? Honest question, not questioning the newsworthiness, this was a release from them so not sure what would have spurned it other than some new thingie going on.

I'm not sure what the difference is but the old block is closed. perhaps it sold out and they open new ones?

The lovely folks over at TFcon USA - taking place in Charlotte in 2015 - have updated their site with the first official guest for the event: voice of Optimus Primal from Transformers Beast Wars, Garry Chalk! Find out more from their official announcement page here, and scroll down below for a snippet.

We are very happy to welcome Transformers voice actor Garry Chalk to TFcon Charlotte 2015. The voice of Optimus Primal in Beast Wars and Beast Machines and Optimus Prime in the Armada, Energon and Cybertron cartoons, he also voiced Generation 1 Megatron in an episode of Beast Wars. Additionally he is known to GIJOE fans as the voices of Pathfinder and Metalhead in G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero, and He-Fans as the voices He-Man in The New Adventures of He-Man, and Man-at-Arms in the 2002 He-Man and the Masters of the Universe. Mr. Chalk will be taking part in Q&A panels and autograph sessions with the attendees of the world’s largest fan-run Transformers convention all weekend long.

I'm giving serious thought to driving up there. I haven't been to a Con since BotCon 2011, it's about time to go to another one. Is TFCon run differently than BotCon, since it's a fan-organized event?

Yep, very much so. The unofficial conventions I've been to, those being last year's TFcon in Chicago and Charticon back in 2013, were very different in feel.

Both had registration/"package pick-up" that involved walking up to a table where there was no line for about two minutes. The only lines I can remember for the entirety of either show were for the dealer room openings and then there was one to get James Roberts' autograph at TFcon. Both environments felt very laid back, stuff was just happening on its own whereas Botcon feels very much like a production in almost all aspects.

I enjoy Botcon a lot, but shows like this one are a change of pace in a lot of ways and also extremely enjoyable. Come on up and hang out!

Do I have to purchase the packages in advance, or can I just get a ticket at the door? I don't really need the exclusive figures, I just want to go in and enjoy the atmosphere and mingling with other fans. Most likely I will only spend 1 day there, unless some special events will be lined up. It's an 8 hour drive from South GA, so I don't know if I would be able to spend all 3 days there.

Yep, you can get door tickets. All I did in Chicago last year was walk up when I got there and bought a pass for the weekend, no toys and such required and it only took a few minutes.

TFcon Charlotte have added another guest to their line-up for the USA event in October - none other than the big lump of a dinobot himself, or his voice at least, Gregg Berger! Find out what the organisers have to say about the man behind Grimlock - and many more characters - below, and head here to book your tickets now.

We are happy to welcome the voice of Generation 1 Grimlock Gregg Berger to TFcon Charlotte. He also voiced Skyfire (Jetfire), Long Haul and Outback in the same series. He returned to the character of Grimlock for the Fall of Cybertron video game as well as the upcoming Transformers: Devastation.

Gregg will be taking part in Q&A panels and autograph sessions with the attendees of the world’s largest fan-run Transformers convention all weekend long.

It's fairly cheap, it sounds like a lax environment, instead of the stressed out atmosphere BotCon has become, and it's only an 8-hour drive for me. I love Transformers and road trips, and I've decided to get more socially involved with fellow fans. Count me in! :D

I can't wait to go! I only live an hour from Charlotte and it'll be my first Transformers convention! The fact that Gregg is gonna be there is pretty cool too.

Time, too, would be handy. Term starts again in October, so planning would have to be very tight. And the faculty still hasn't let TAs know our hours for this coming year. :(
