    Hey Everyone,
    There is a Convention up here in Toronto that comes after TFcon every year .
    Its called Fan Expo Canada its a Convention that brings Comic/SciFi/Horror/Anime And Video Games under one roof , its like the Canadian Comic Con .
    Now for years Transformers fans up here in Canada were always hoping for something every year .
    Not that there is anything wrong with TFcon , but alot of us go to both and hope for something out of Fan Expo .
    Well this year a we were let down again this year , No voice actors, no movie stars nothing Transformers .

    So one of the Transfans called asking why every year that Transformers gets bigger and bigger, why do they do nothing .
    He told them how Transformers covers Anime/Comics/SciFi Movies/Toys and Video Games everything there about .
    They responded "Transformers does not have a big enough draw for our show"

    So after hearing that a group of us on facebook decided to speak out on there page .

    If you wanna help out, post on facebook here and show them Transformers Matter

    Thank you to everyone for your time

    So Transformers can apparently support their own convention, but "aren't a big enough draw" for a comic con type event where presumably, the two have a lot of crossover?

    I think someone in management just doesn't like Transformers, or maybe it got too mainstream for them

    Might simply be a different target audience.

    I would have probably asked the man if he was aware of the sheer scope of his ignorance. There's no excuse for anyone to not know about the crazy popularity of the Transformers movies. Particularly anyone involved with a convention like that.
