The figure will be Nightbird the female Ninja robot from the G1 episode "enter the Nightbird".
As you can see it appears to be based of Impossible toys long awaited T.R.N.S.-01, or in other words Arcee with a new head and sword.
TFCon will also offer a non attendee pack for any one interested in the exclusive who might not be able to make it to the event.

This looks more like crossover. Darth Arcee with a lightsaber?

Springer was a helicopter and Arcee wasn't ever a spider. Con exclusives don't always give the most cartoon-accurate representation of characters.

I hope Impossible toys doesn't turn around and announce an "Asian Market" exclusive Nightbird with a slight repaint (and no TFcon sticker...whoopee) like FansProject did last year.

Star Wars : Clone Wars Animated, right? Why do you ask? Don't even dare say Nightbird reminds you of her... I'll send the East Cybertron Trading Co. to assassinate you if you say yes!

No it isn't. TFCon is not sponsored or licensed by Hasbro, so using their toys is out of the question.

1 - Because they already have plans for an accurate version. You can preorder it here. http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/bbts/prod ... ode=retail It's been on endless delay, though.
2 - I suspect to increase returns on their 'Arcee' mold investment.
I'm sure there are other reasons as as well
