    OFFICIAL Dutch TF onvention

    To all you Dutch fans out there: Against all odds, Hasbro NL (who is even WORSE then Hasbro UK) has decided to host an OFFICIAL Dutch TF convention!

    Translation for you non-Dutch peeps out there:

    Thanks to Shockwave Yigal of TLF: http://shockwave.forumup.nl/viewtopic.php?p=28076&mforum=shockwave#28076

    This is...Very unexpected, to say the least. :eek Oh, and I have no idea what this Trypticon.nl is, save for that the owner is the one who builded that huge city/base in his house-sized shed a few years back.

    So apparently organised by http://www.trypticon.nl/

    Don't know much more about it (website doesn't say anything), but someone in the BTFA thread said it was probably to be somewhere in the province of Utrecht (most central province of the Netherlands). Might be interesting for German and Belgian TF collectors as well? :) 

    EDIT: Gah, just noticed: wrong forum section... Sorry. :(

    I will. :) 

    A bit more info: From what I've heard of one of the sellers that got involved, the name of the convention will be Transformation. It's meant as a standin for Dutch Botcon, a fan-organized event that has been held for some time now, but that has been indefinately postponed because the main organisor has a new job. The people of Trypticon.nl (who also helped organise Dutch Botcon) decide to organise a new convention instead of waiting for DBC, and also decided to call in the help of Hasbro. It's unknown just how involved they are though, but because of the involvement it's the closest thing we've got to an official convention here. Oh, and it's to be held somewhere in June; the exact date is still unknown.

    Your offer to do fanart makes up for the stereotype. :3 I'm just reporting it though, I'm not involved with the organisation. ;)  But I'll see if I can get into contact with them. :)

    I have posted a lot of pics of Goderts Citybase and Char in the "let's see something cool thread' a few months ago.

    The thing has been destroyed years ago.

    Just for the record, the organisation part of DBCTF consists of 1 person, me ;) 
    There are a few people in there who worked on Neder Botcon. Kind of Dutchbot Con's (note, no botcon associate) ancestor ;) 

    (and yes, I just started a new job on the first of april ;)  )

    And more details have been given away. See the news section on www.trypticon.nl.

    Measured to Dutch standards, it will be a huge convention. I can't wait! :wink:

    Update time!

    -Activision will NOT be present at Transformations. They had something planned, but weren't able to go through with it and had to cancel their appearance. That's the explanation on the site, at least. Oh well, thanks anyways guys! :) 
    -In the spirit of Dutch Botcon's Trypticon races, Transformations will have a...Jumpstarter race!:D 
    -Hasbro will hold a lottery in which they give away a price that the organisation called a "mega-box". Lottery tickets cost 1 euro.
    -Hasbro will also have the entire first wave on display. Nice. :) 
    -The price for the Art and Kitbash contests will be 'unique items limited to one'. It's not yet revealed what it is, though I have a feeling I know what it is.
    -The first 200 people present will get an unique Transformations goodiebag.
    -5 random people will receive 2 tickets for the movie, courtesy of Universal.

    And finally, the program will be as follows:

    Sunday june 10th- 11.00am to 5.00pm.
    Fulcotheatre IJsselstein

    During Transformations there will be two halls, Hall A and Hall C

    11.00 uur - Doors opening. Gathering in the main hall
    11.30 uur - The opening of Transformations
    11.45 uur - Opening of Hall A (dealers and Hasbro)
    13.00 uur - Opening Hall C (fandealers)
    13.00 uur - Start Have your Transformers drawn in Hall C
    14.30 uur - Deadline for the Transformers quiz
    15.00 uur - End Have your Transformers drawn in Hall C
    15.30 uur - Jumpstarter challenge in Hall C
    16.55 uur - Closing Hall C
    17.00 uur - Announcement of contestwinners and prices in Hall C
    17.25 uur - End of Transformations
    17.30 uur - Doors closed
