Just yesterday TFCon unveiled "Stronghold", an exclusive deco of HeadRobots Hothead. Today, TFCon upped the ante by revealing some of Stronghold's backstory:

TFcon 2011 registration goes is now online. You can pre-register online for TFcon 2011 via this link. Preregistration will run until July 16th at 12pm.

The TFcon 2011 exclusive is Stronghold, produced by Head Robots. Designed for the Universe Onslaught mold and cross compatible with Generation 1 Headmasters, Stronghold will be limited to 700 pieces. This is a high-quality upgrade kit that contains a transforming head with ball joints and clear blue eyepiece, two photon rifles, one assault cannon, and a backpack. The backpack features many mounting points so the guns can be configured in many ways. This exclusive will come with a bonus set of Reprolabels that will transform your old action figure into an all new character for your collection.

In command of a lost band of Transformers from before the Great War, Stronghold must now deal with the likes of an escapee war criminal in the form of Zarak. Armed with his Master Cannon and double blasters, this leader of the fabled Head Robots is a force to be reckoned with now that he holds the plans to the mysterious project Maximus...

Now that some details have been clarified regarding Stronghold I've ordered the non-attendee package. I'm gonna convert my Onslaught into Stronghold and re-integrate him into my displayed TFs.

I would so love to go after all the work I put into this and the pass they offered me but it would cost me $750 just for travel and lodging. :( I've already got 2 other major conventions to attend as well as Anime Blues Con here in Memphis which will be our first anime convention. I will be moderator as well as a guest on the voice actors' panels and the 80s cartoon panel which I'll be showing off some of my videos.

This looks awsome! I just booked my room. This is going to be my first TFcon, I've been to BotCon a few times before, is it much different? Canada was actually cheaper and closer than Pasadena, so why not? Anyway hope to see some of you there! :CON:

Awesome! A panel devoted simply to 3rd parties. Can't wait to read what they announce. Either that or this is a ploy to lure them out for Hasbro to take a shot at them, legally speaking of course.
