Tickets will be available for everyone to purchase directly from the Orpheum, however TFExpo will pre-purchase tickets from the theater that we will reserve for our Ultra and Premium registrants!

Everyone should make the trip out to Wichita for TF-Expo. The new location is fantastic and right in the heart of the Old Town entertainment district. There is something for everyone within walking distance. Theaters, Bars, Clubs, lots of Restaurants, great shopping, etc. There will be a Farmers Market in the morning and Street Musicians and performers during the day and evening.
I am telling you, there is something going on for everyone.

Just announced is another big guest for TFExpo 2016 happening August 5 and 6 in Wichita, KS is Beast Wars Megatron himself David Kaye.

TFExpo wrote:TFExpo is thrilled to announce that David Kaye will be attending TFExpo 2016! Transformers fans know David very well as the voice of the sinister Beast Wars Megatron in that series, which celebrates its 20th Anniversary this year. But he can also be heard as Transformers Animated Optimus Prime and many other characters throughout the franchise. With impressive voiceover credits including Mobile Suit Gundam Wing, Ratchet and Clank Movie, Dragon Ball Z, and now as the voice behind Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, David is one busy guy. Please help us make him feel welcome on his first trip to Wichita, Kansas! Ultra Packages, including dinner with the stars, a seat at the TFExpo script reading, and your picture taken with David AND Michael Bell ARE still available as of this writing, but we expect these to go VERY quickly with this announcement. Please don't delay, register right now at

Titans Return Fortress Maximus!
