Another guest update comes to us from the folks at TFNation, featuring an artist that has united old and new fans, and one loved by several across the board: Geoff Senior!

Operation: Crashing into TFNation, atop Ultra Magnus, it's Geoff Senior!


As a certain Transformers writer might once have mentioned - it never ends! If we have the chance to bring our attendees another guest who holds a prime place in the TF fandom, then we are going to take it. So it is with great pleasure that we announce that Geoff Senior, one of the bastions of the Marvel UK Transformers comic, is attending TFNation 2017!

From issue #42's 'Crisis Of Command' to 'On The Edge Of Extinction', Geoff brought his unique style to both the UK and US Marvel series; his bold angles and framing perfectly complimenting his partner-in-crime, writer Simon Furman. Indeed, many members of the current generation of professional Transformers artists cite Geoff's work as a key influence and inspiration.

Beyond the G1 comic, Geoff's influence has made itself felt through many iterations of the franchise from the likes of Generation 2, Titan's Transformers live-action movie books and convention exclusive stories, all the way through to IDW's Regeneration One. His art is now featuring prominently in Hachette's Definitive G1 Collection introducing a new generation to the classic series.

Outside of Transformers, Geoff teamed with Simon Furman to create everyone's favourite Freelance Peacekeeping Agent, Death's Head, as well as the British team Dragon's Claws. His art can found in Action Force/GI Joe, Doctor Who, Zoids, Dark Angel, 2000ad and Judge Dredd: Lawman of the Future, and many others.

It's hard to believe in our current comic climate but much of Geoff's original artwork from those days are scattered to the four winds. To rectify this travesty, Geoff has recently been taking on commissions, allowing people to take home their very own piece of dynamic Senior art... news that will hit many fans right in the retros! Contact Geoff at his website for more information at http://www.geoffsenior.com/

Geoff will be signing autographs and selling artwork from Friday 11th until Sunday 13th August 2017 at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole Hotel at TFNation 2016 - we look forward to seeing you there!

I wish they would number the rooms or something. I can't tell the colour coordination. Although they at least have written it beside each event this time, instead of last year where it was purely colour. So that's good.

This, this is cute.

Oh, hey everybody!

Allow me to introduce myself: Im Genericon! But you can call me Genny or Gen!

If you're coming along to TFN2017, we'll be seeing a lot of each other. Sooooo I wanted to step out of the data banks and tell you a little bit about... well, me!

I'm the TFNation communications bot. My job is to keep you all well informed about the convention! You know all those Transmissions TFN sends out... spoilers... they're all from me! Like, literally me... my alt mode is a datapad, dontcha know?

I'll be popping up from time to time during the show to make sure you're all headed in the right direction. Wouldn't wanna stray into a Decepticon trap now, would you? I mean, TFNation is *supposed* to be a respected neutral territory, but some 'Cons just have issues with the rules, know what I mean?

Look out for me on signs, banners, brochures and... oh, hey! Last year I soooorta recorded my experience attending the convention for the first time. It might be useful for any other newbies nervous about their first year, so keep your optics online and I'll transmit that as soon as. :)

See you at the con!

Genny x

This is adorable and I kiiiinda want it. Kinda. Maybe, we'll see.

Speaking of which, I'm going to TFNation! Hooray! I'll hopefully have some kind of identifying feature so if any fellow Seibertronians are there we can recognize each other/exchange notes/get into vicious brawls over frivolous crap etc.

Seeya guys there!

Copy pasted from the Haul thread:

Went to TFNation today. Man, what a blast. Met Thew, Venus Terzo (who is lovely), Hal Rayle and Simon Furman, saw sights, talked to people and most importantly BOUGHT STUFF!

First up is a Transmetal Waspinator, whose robot mode is kinda meh but oh my goodness that wasp mode.
Image

Next is Transmetal Tarantulas, who is amazing. Love this guy, won't be fiddling with him much though as his chrome is a bit flakey.
Image

And finally (for figures) is an absolute holy grail of mine...

BEAST.

WARS.

RAMPAGE.
Image
This dude. This DUUUUUDE. So cool. I love him to bits.

I won't be fiddling with any of these dudes very much because they're vintage and that chrome is NOT gonna take kindly to fingers, but they'll make gorgeous display pieces.

Also some non-figure hauls (If that's a problem please move, there's only two though)...

Some awesome art including one by our very own HinoMars, and one signed by Hal Rayle!
Image

And finally, the best/worst Transformers thing I have ever bought...
Image
...Arcee boobs mousepad.

So yeah. TFNation was FUN.
