Guest_Announcement
Operation: More Than Meets The Eye

Our latest guest announcement has been winding throughout the web since we shared it with fellow fans in Manchester, last week. We are overjoyed to officially announce that James Roberts, scribe-master-in-chief of the IDW comic series MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE, will be attending TFNation 2016.

As the creator of unique characters that have sparked so much devotion from fans, with their vocal response to the issues, created fan fiction, cosplay and other creative endeavours, we knew James would enjoy a great reception here, in August.

James’ background explains much of his open and honest dealings with the fans as he joined the fandom in the G1 years, avidly following the stories and characters of fellow guest Simon Furman, creating fanzines with co-operatives such as Transmasters, leading to the epic novel EUGENESIS.

James made his first official foray into IDW with his involvement with Nick Roche on AHM#15 and the now-classic LAST STAND OF THE WRECKERS. This was followed by text stories in the LSofW collected editions and involvement in the crossover event CHAOS that lead into James’ own title MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE. In the years that have followed, fans have shared the loves, losses and Rod Pods of the Lost Light crew as they attempt quests, ponder life’s mysteries…. And deal with an Autobot called Megatron!

James will be signing autographs, suggesting soundtracks, and selling comics and script packs from Friday 19th until Sunday 21st August 2016 at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole Hotel at TFNation 2016.

The team grows ever-larger. We look forward to seeing you there!

It is with the greatest of pleasure that we welcome IDW artist Alex Milne to our first TFNation convention (http://tfnation.us11.list-manage2.com/t ... 1e517e5c6f) , in August. If you've seen our posters and flyers at Forbidden Planet this month, you may have noticed Alex on our wanted poster.

From heartbreaking tragedy to uplifting comedy, from space-horror to blossoming love, Alex has brought all this, and more, to readers as the regular artist for IDW's More Than Meets The Eye. If you have a fondness for the galaxy’s most... unique crew, Alex has been a vital element of their enduring appeal.

In addition to his work for the Lost Light, Alex has provided numerous covers for IDW and has previously crafted big-bot battles with Devils Due, Fun Pub and Dreamwave.

Alex's convention commission work merits its own mention as he creates a stunning range of work for fans. We urge you to keep an eye on Master Milne in the build-up to TFNation as any sketchlists are sure to fill up fast!

Alex's Deviant Art - http://tfnation.us11.list-manage.com/tr ... 1e517e5c6f

Alex will be signing autographs and selling artwork from Friday 19th until Sunday 21st August 2016 at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole Hotel at TFNation 2016 - we look forward to seeing you there!

Operation: Official Product Display / Giveaway

TFNation is proud to announce its first officially licensed Transformers product display featuring Fascinations Inc.’s Metal Earth® Transformers® 3D model kits. TFNation has teamed up with Professor Puzzle Ltd, the UK distributor for Fascinations Inc.’s Transformers line, to feature a display of the currently available items and also to offer you the opportunity to win the product!

The Metal Earth® models are amazingly detailed etched models that are fun and satisfying to assemble. Each model starts out as a number of 10cm square metal sheets, and you simply pop out the pieces and follow the included directions to assemble your model. All joints are made by folding small tabs - no glue or solder needed.

Professor Puzzle has provided us with a complete set of sealed Wave 1 figures as well as two pre-made up Optimus Prime statues for display at TFNation 2016. Characters represented in Wave 1 kits are:

• Optimus Prime
• Megatron
• Soundwave (with Laserbeak)
• Bumblebee (silver)

Details on how to win one of these fantastic products will be announced nearer the time.

I got a few of these kits at Books a Million about a month ago. While the Optimus model is okay, the Megatron model is nearly impossible to get together correctly as the metal snaps in many places if bent too many times. I had to break down and use glue in many, many places to get Megatron to stay together. They also apparently modeled Megatron after the Masterpiece figure, so if there are things you don't like about the way that figure looks, that's what you've got.

Operation: The Man, the legend, the next guest

As TFN May-hem draws to a close it is only fitting that we end the month with the announcement of another guest. That guest being the Man, the Legend, Geoff Senior. One of the most iconic artists to grace the Transformers comics.

Ever since his artwork first appeared in Transformers UK #42's 'Crisis Of Command' he became a beloved mainstay of the title until the book's conclusion, with his final story being the apocalyptic 'On The Edge Of Extinction', the majority of his body of work being made in collaboration with fellow TFN guest Simon Furman (with whom he co-created long-time fan favourite character Death's Head). With his deceptively simple linework and kinetic storytelling, Geoff has been cited as the inspiration for many artists working on the Transformers professionally today.

When Transformers returned to comics, Geoff found his way back to them as well, through the likes of Generation 2, Titan's Transformers live-action movie books, convention exclusive stories, and most recently IDW's Regeneration One. Outside of Transformers, Geoff has also worked on Action Force/GI Joe, Death's Head, Doctor Who, Dragon's Claws (also co-created with Furman), Zoids, Dark Angel, 2000ad and Judge Dredd: Lawman of the Future.

Don't miss this chance to meet a man who had a hand in many major parts of Transformers history and to get a sketch from the Kirby of Cybertron!

Geoff will be signing autographs and selling artwork from Friday 19th until Sunday 21st August 2016 at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole Hotel at TFNation 2016 - we look forward to seeing you there!

Still my favourite Transformers artist and one of my childhood inspirations to pick up a pencil and start drawing. His action scenes somehow gave an impression of being more animated than the cartoon ever was. If that makes sense. I know what I mean. :P Loved the proper mean faces he gave Decepticons (like that angry as heck Thunderwing in the picture).

And Death's Head still rules, yes?

Operation: Some people always look better in hats.

With the first TFN fast approaching it is time we announced our newest guest. This time we have the honour of welcoming Jim Sorenson to our first convention.

Jim Sorenson became a member of the Transformers online community in the early 90's. Not long after he began deciphering the Maximal and Predacon languages used in the TV series Beast Wars. Through his time as a collector Jim compiled lots of previously unknown information which he made available online through his blog Disciples of Boltax.

In 2007 however Jim turned his passion for collecting into a profession when, alongside collaborator and friend Bill Foster he published Transformers: The Ark. A collection of over 500 animation character models from Generation 1. A second volume followed a year later this time showcasing character models from the Japanese Generation 1 animated series. Since then Jim has been kept busy releasing books on Transformers Animated, Transformers Prime, G.I. Joe, and recently Transformers Legacy, a book collecting a large portion of Generation 1 box art. Whilst Jim is currently working on a secret project his most recent work, The Art Of The Angry Birds Movie, will be released at all good bookstores on the 16th June and is currently available to pre-order.

In addition to his resource books Jim continues to be a large contributor to the fandom through the incredibly entertaining "Ask Vector Prime" and "Renegade Rhetoric" series in the BotCon magazines. He also wrote several prose stories as part of the Beast Wars: Uprising series.

Don't miss the chance to meet Jim this year at TFNation where he will be hosting a panel where it's very likely the guardian of space and time might be making an appearance.

Jim will also be signing autographs so to get that chance to meet him book your tickets from Friday 19th until Sunday 21st August 2016 at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole Hotel at TFNation - we look forward to seeing you there.

A new week, a new guest for the upcoming TFNation 2016 event, the first in this incarnation, taking place next month in Birmingham, UK! And the guest joining the already impressive roster is MTMTE and Legends comics-famed artist Hayato Sakamoto - check out more info below, and get ready for some spaghetti Energon!

TFNation_2016
Operation: Guest announcement

With a flurry of new announcements waiting in the wings, TFNation moves ever closer to August by welcoming IDW artist Hayato Sakamoto to our inaugural event, on his first ever visit to the UK.

Sakamoto-sensei is best known in the West for his contributions to More Than Meets The Eye - particularly for his work in designing the fan-fave character Nickel (who so easily holds the terrifying DJD in the palm of her hand). He has also worked on recent Botcon strips on both covers and interiors.

Sakamoto-sensei’s widest body of work is mostly seen in Japan, where he has leant his talents to pack-in and tie-in comics exclusive to TakaraTomy's releases of TF toys, from Kre-O through to the current Combiner Wars line. These comics (which he often also writes) have given us some of the lighter, more humorous interpretations of the franchise in recent years, such as die-hard G1 fan Rhinox, and Sentinel Prime being depicted as a frustrated head on wheels.

He has also provided box art for a number of TakaraTomy's domestic releases of figures, and is a keen contributor to fan projects.

Sakamoto-sensei is excited to be a part of TFNation because he has heard such great things about the UK convention community (largely from his wonderful friend and fellow TFN guest, Miss Kei Zama) however, we have been asked to explain to our attendees that he is presently still learning English and thus, will need some help from time to time. Though he was a little embarrassed about this at first, we've been happy to put measures in place to ensure translators are standing by to assist guest and attendees alike. We felt this was important as we want to ensure TFNation is inclusive and reaches out to all parts of the community.

Hayato Sakamoto will be signing autographs over the weekend of Friday 19th until Sunday 21st August 2016 at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole Hotel at TFNation - we look forward to seeing you there!

After Hayato Sakamoto, another fan favourite from the Transformers comics world - though a fairly older one, in terms of presence on the scene - will also be attending the new UK convention TFNation this August in Birmingham: Nick Roche! As Sins of the Wreckers ends, expect him to be answering a lot of questions on the inevitable (right? right?) third chapter in the story.

Operation: Wreck and Roche (Warning, trousers may shatter)

While we have enjoyed the incredible responses to all our guest announcements to date, it’s fair to say that few will give both the TFNation team, and it’s attendees as much pleasure as announcing writer and artist Nick Roche’s attendance at this August’s event.

Known for his work with The Wreckers, Nick has been a TF fan since the days of the Marvel UK comics. Gaining exposure through the Transmasters community, Nick first worked on IDW’s Spotlight series, followed by Devastation, Maximum Dinobots and a notable issue of All Hail Megatron. All this, plus his numerous covers for other series, lead to the 2010 mini-series LAST STAND OF THE WRECKERS (for which he snuck in his Transmaster collaborator, some guy called James Roberts) which broke hearts, shattered trousers and whose influence has been felt in IDW Transformers, ever since.

Sins of the Wreckers, the highly anticipated sequel that Nick both wrote and drew, has just concluded, providing another dark chapter of the story of the Autobots most tragic/heroic team. We look forward to hearing the authors own feelings on the characters, story and those inevitable deaths, over the course of the convention weekend.

Away from Transformers, Nick has been involved in a wide range of work, from his Monster Motors collaboration with Brian Lynch, Dr Who covers for IDW and New Warriors for Marvel comics. He also hit Marvel UK fans right in the retros by providing the artwork for the Deaths Head section of Marvels Revolutionary war. Fitting, yes? On top of that, it still blows our minds that Nick also created all the artwork for an animated music video, as well as album cover art, for the last album from Brit rockers The Darkness.

We suggest you follow Nick on social media, for details of his plans for this year, as well as his recent blog for those following SINS OF THE WRECKERS.

http://tfnation.us11.list-manage2.com/t ... 1e517e5c6f

Nick will be signing autographs and selling artwork at TFNation 2016 at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole Hotel - we look forward to seeing you there!

Operation: The Angry Birds Transformers let fly!

The walls of TFNation Towers are shaking as we play host to our most explosive new guests yet, the Angry Birds Transformers! Exient, the award winning studio that develops and transmits the mobile game for Rovio, is motoring into TFNation 2016, for their first UK Transformers convention.

Since its launch in September 2014, Angry Birds Transformers has gone from strength to strength, averaging half a million daily active users, regular updates, 40 characters and over 150 accessories (our favourite is Kremzeek) and there seems no sign of stopping. It's continued success has brought high praise from Hasbro and Rovio and the Exient team justifiably proud of their creation.

Ryan and the team will be displaying concept and designs from the series, discussing the development of the game, its ever-growing cast of characters and seeking feedback from both current and future gamers on the mobile app. In return, attendees can expect some exclusive goodies, including character unlocks for the game! All game development disciplines will be accounted for:
* Stuart Maine and Greg Law - Design
* James Back - Producer
* Ryan Astley - Art
* Emyr Jenkins and Jordan Thompson - Code
* Athanasios Skarlatos - Analyst
* Deborah Oyeyinka - Social Media

Exient will be in attendance on Saturday 20th and Sunday 21st August 2016. This is not only a great opportunity for fans of the game to speak to the driving force behind its development, but will appeal to anyone interested in game design, animation and multimedia. The team aren’t just with us as developers, they are also here as fans of the franchise from G1 to the modern comic incarnations, and we hope our attendees give them the warmest of welcomes!

Fellow Seibertronians, we've gotten more news about TFNation, the upcoming Transformers convention taking place in Birmingham, England, on August 19th-21st. Just like any convention, they need volunteers! Check out the write-up down below!

Transmission Initiated

TFNation_2016
Operation: Volunteer applications open!

With a jam-packed schedule soon to be announced, TFNation requires some of the finest Cybertronian reinforcements... do you have what it takes to be one of our first volunteers?

Volunteering is a brilliant way to get involved and give something back to the community, whilst also having a fun time (and it looks great on your CV too). It is an especially good way to meet new friends if you are a first timer. Likewise, veteran convention volunteers bring invaluable experience to the battle against the evil Deceptic... err... to the ticket queues.

Sending in your volunteer application couldn't be simpler. Just go to tfnation.com and click on the volunteer link on the home page and you will be taken to the form. No need to print it, just complete and then submit!

(If you are already logged into the website this process will be very quick. If you are not logged in, or have not purchased a ticket yet, you will need to do this before you proceed)

We anticipate we will have quite a lot of interest in volunteer positions, so we would urge you to apply as soon as you can. Successful applicants will be notified by email. If you are not successful in year one, we hope you'll apply again in year two!

With just a few weeks to go to make TFNation great, all we need is a little energon... and a lot of YOU!

Another update from TFNation proves that the new crew are bent on making a big, lasting, loud impression onto the UK scene - as Space Ape Games, the developers of Transformers Earth Wars, are announced as having a presence at the event this coming month!

Operation: Earth Wars! Space Ape Games invades TFNation!

The Decepticons have invaded Earth and only the Autobots can save us now, as the Transformer: Earth wars commence! This past June saw the hugely successful release of the Earth Wars mobile game and we are proud to announce the award-winning Space Ape games, will be in attendance at TFNation 2016!

Based on a story by TFNation guest Simon Furman, published by Backflip Studios and developed by Space Ape Games in partnership with Backflip Studios & Hasbro, Earth Wars puts you in-charge of a veritable army of Cybertronians as you attack and defend precious bases in order to defeat your enemies.

Chris White and the team will be attending on Saturday 20th August, with concept art, posters and development videos running throughout the weekend. The Space Ape crew are eager to meet both existing fans of the game and those new to it, and are busy planning a “beat the base” in-game competition, to those who think they are up to the challenge!


Space Ape have worked with some of the most pivotal people within the Transformers franchise to create this game. They have invested considerable time in shaping the game to please fans of the characters. We urge our attendees to take this chance to meet, and question the Space Ape team, not just as special guests, but as fellow fans of the franchise.

With the game so popular amongst our attendees, there are plans afoot for our own Sunday-based event, at the Space Ape table, to be run by fans, for fans. A great chance to bond with fellow attendees…. Then crush them under your Cybertronian heels!

"...They have invested considerable time in shaping the game to please fans of the characters. We urge our attendees to take this chance to meet, and question the Space Ape team, not just as special guests, but as fellow fans of the franchise..."


Anyone think that this seems a little defensive? Almost like:

"...They have invested considerable time in shaping this Pay-To-Win grind-fest to please shareholders. However, we are desperate that our attendees take this chance to not ignore, berate out cross-examine the Space Ape team as to why their app is yet another soon-to-be cancelled freemium turd, as we promised them that they were "special guests", and that one of the artists on the team is secretly a fan of the franchise..."


If you hate, were confused by or just couldn't be bothered by these freemium apps, then the BEST thing to do would be to just give them a wide berth. No abuse, no shouting or booing; just ignore them. Then maybe they'll get the hint. These apps are NOT for fans. They are for casual gamers and little kids, using the brand as a skin to lure them in. That's it. Pure profit.
