Seibertron.com member UltraPrimal has informed us that the Canadian Transformers fan convention TFCon will have an exclusive this year. Just like the previous year this year's exclusive is made by an unofficial 3rd party company.
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.

Looks cool, but I hope this doesn't mean Itoys has scrapped their 100% accurate Nightbirds and used their heads for this. How many pieces have their past exclusives been limited to?

This news makes me ponder: What if Hasbro had approved a Transfomers aimed at teenage girls with all-girl TFers as the characters??

Nightbird?


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

But Nightbird didn't transform, nor did she have a backpack.

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

Is it just me, or does her back thingies and chest look like another feminine Transformers tahat we've come to love/hate? That's right, I'm talking about..... Optimus Prime. Ha, you thought I'd say something different, didn't you?! Alright, I'll tell you who it is. I'm pretty sure its a repaint of Impossible Toy's Arcee :lol:

Dammit.. looks like more money magically disappearing from me wallet. If this didn't transform, Nightbird would be a big fat pass for me... :BANG_HEAD:

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. #-o

I must be the only person in the world that didn't think she was all that when she appeared in the cartoon series. I think it's because she didn't transform. I always figured that if she did transform, she'd be a Ninja Motorcycle that were so hot at the time.

if someone can tell me why i need a non accurate, 200 dollar arcee repaint when i already got the cartoon accurate, platic model one for 20 dollars at a local hobbyshop, i will use my magic to personally shake their hand through the internet.

So far I haven't seen anything from Botcon that's worth buying so this is a must have!

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! :lol:

If I remember correct, Nightbird didnt transform into anything. Why use an Arcee body ??? Just make a accurate figure like they did the Quints and Kremzeek. No need to be lazy...

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 :-)
