We have some more news from TFcon Chicago, as September rolls in and the event gets ever closer: the first person to write Transformers fiction will attend the fan-run convention! That's right, Bob Budiansky will be in attendance, and you can find more about it below or directly at TFcon's site here.

We are honored to welcome Transformers creator Bob Budiansky to TFcon Chicago 2016. 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 panels and meeting with fans all weekend long.

So the guy begs to be taken off the Marvel Transformers comic and now he wants to attend the conventions?

Whatever.

His stuff up until #24 is classic though. I wonder why after writing the original Transformers tech specs why he didn't want to write #1-4?
