Won’t be going to this one ether or probably the next, or the next after that, so please can some body put a video on youtube when you go there, so that I can watch at the local library with the high speed internet.


By the way my mom is the best of the best of the best at making costumes you should’ve seen my praying mantis one, it was awesome, and probably she could make a transforming costume with working head lights and a small engine that powers the wheels.

Not sure about the prizes, but I do remember that they were presented by Derrick J Wyatt last year.

Many people vlog from TFcon, so if you keep an eye on Youtube, you'll probably see any number of events! Evantainment puts together a DVD every year as well. And hopefully you'll make it to TFcon one of these years - especially if you can create great costumes! Sounds like your mom has some talent! 8)

Looks cool, I'll have to check some feedback from it. I'm allready going to Botcon this year and I probably can't afford another convention. Besides Pasadena is in my state. Ontario is not even in my country.

Hi peeps, I'm checking this one out and going to try and attend. I've been to two TF cons in the past, just not this one yet.
Not my country either, but it's far closer then CA.

A couple of quick updates from TFcon 2011:

TFcon 2011 registration goes online Monday, May 16th at 10am. 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.

Are they actually asking $100 for that in the non-attending set?

If I could rewind my purchases, I'd certainly pick up i-Gears. I have nothing against their original products, it's some of the KOs that are a bit tricky for me to appreciate. To each their own I suppose. But yeah, I'm not surprised IT hasn't made anything since. They've just straight up took their purchases and ran. The HeadRobots is a bit of a step down from the D.I.A. Commander back in '09, but hey, not too many things will top that.

I think you guys will like the set this year. I'll be going again this year, it's always been well done in the past and like others I've made many friends there over the years.

There's one tinsy thing they are leaving out of their announcement just yet from what I hear, but if it's true then it's sure to get everyone on board this year!

Looks like I'm gonna have to hit up one of my Cannuck hook ups! Looking forward to Fort Max!! Whooo! Love head robots stuff and like the fact that we get an additional surprise.

I really want the exclusive but am in the Southern USA. If anyone is going and might be able to pick up or part with a head robot, shoot me a PM. They're selling a non-attending package, but it's $110... but the figure is around $40 if you attend.

Fort Max? Is that who Stronghold is (the head certainly suggested this, but I have to imagine it's going to take a bunch of Reprolabels and still won't look right) ?

Still, I'd rather HeadRobots just put out their Voyager Bludgeon head first.

I'm just glad that the 3rd party product this year is a Headrobots figure. I hated last year's figure with a passion. I'm looking forward to having this on my US Onslaught, and I liked the head when it was done for Hardhead and I think this will be pretty bad ass for "Stronghold".

And my TFCon figure is now secured!! ;)
