    All this discussion has gone on about the new convention in the uk. Well............ it is coming through and Dinotron has a lot of things sorted out already. I would say there is about a 90% chance this thing will happen so we were hoping if a lot of you could help a little. If any of you are members of other live tf forums mabey you could pm a mod or an admin to ask if they could make an announcment or something to ask if anyone has an interest in selling or taking part in any otherway or even just to come to the convention to get in touch with dinotron on this forum to let him know. Thnx loads ppl

    What are the exact details though? Hard to spread information without dates and locations for it.

    You are more than welcome to use the message board's feature "Submit News" and give us the details. Though it would be better if you had a website of some sort so users could easily view and read your information on their own time, we will still review the news as it comes.

    Thanks.

    That's cool, a new 'con for our UK buds. If it takes off, I'd schedule a vacation around it someday.

    Excellent. Those sounds more like the numbers I'd expect.

    Again Excellent News. Hopefully they'll response.

    I'd approach this with caution. The Unofficical Botcon did and exclusive figure a couple of years ago (while OTFCC was still running) and got in a lot of trouble.

    I've a couple of Ideas and I'll PM you with them tomorrow.

    Thanks. I egerly await the email. :)

    Not a lot of trouble really as the figure wasn't sold, only pre-registrants got it.

    Hasbro however did look into the people who provided the individual components.

    Translabels (I believe this was the only one) got a C&D because they were providing reproduction labels of figures Hasbro had out at the time, and ended up closing down.

    Wasn't sure exactly what happened, just remembered alot of activity about it around here at the time.

    Still, it might be a little difficult to get Hasbro UK involved if your producing an Unofficial figure. :)

    Good question. I think the issue there would proberbly be the use of various other Trademarks such as "Transformer", "Autobot", "Decepticon" or any of the sysmbols. TFAuctions did something similar with Cougar, but I believe that they're officially sanctioned by Hasbro.

    The best thing to do would proberbly be to see if you can get Hasbro Uk to input,
    although I'm not sure if UK fans will pay as much as the US fans do for exclusives.

    On a separate note - won't a whole new mold be really expensive?
