The folks over at TFcon USA have sent us some news about their 2017 edition, and we now have both location and dates for the fan-run event, robot fans: September 29th-October 1st in Reston, Virginia! The hotel is the Hyatt Regency, and not far from the airport - and the area also featured in Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. Check out more info below!

Save the dates! TFcon America's largest fan-run Transformers convention will take place in Washington DC the weekend of September 29th to October 1st, 2017. TFcon USA will take place at the Hyatt Regency Reston in Reston, Virginia.

The hotel is located down the road from the Washington Dulles International Airport which is next to the Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center (National Air and Space Museum), home to thousands of aviation and space artifacts, including a Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird, a Concorde, and the Space Shuttle Discovery. The center made its first media appearance in the 2009 film Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, and the SR-71 that is on display in the museum was used as the Autobot Jetfire.

Discounted hotel block information will be available shortly. Dealer bookings and attendee registration information will also be available in the near future.

"Finally, a convention where I only need to take the RIBS."

"Pork ribs?"

"No. Reston Internal Bus Service." :lol:

I'm really contemplating going. Anyone know how quickly the room reservations usually fill, or even who else is going/may be going?

Saw the announcement for this, and I'm already putting aside money for a room. I had an absolute blast at TFcon 2016 in Chicago, and despite this year's being a good 8-9 hours away, I'm confident it'll be worth the gas.

I'm really contemplating going. Do you know how quickly the room reservations usually fill? also, how much did it cost you to go last year?

I'd have to check all of the receipts again, but I think for two people it was around $200-250. Once I get off work, I can dig up my stuff and give ya much better estimate. As for availability, I think i got it around Ma-June (again, I'd have to check) I know the Regency opened up more hotel rooms a couple months later, though I dunno if they'll do it this year.

Signed up as soon as went up. Also got in for the customs class on the Friday. The 1st time I've ever been able to get into one. Is the figure going to be the same or a variation on the one from the Canadian convention?

I'd definitely say hello, but me and my buds would be getting in around midnight, after a 8 1/2 hour drive. Depends on how checked out we are when we check in, haha.

With the way things are looking, I may try to go. Any more spots open in the custom class? If so, how soon does that fill up?

I think it's still available. The class is still an option in the ticket section on their website. Though, I think it filled up as soon as they announced the figure last year. There's only 25 or so slots for the custom class, so it makes sense. Looks like the tickets are already available, though, so if you're not picky on what you get to make, I'd say go for it.
