    Well you should go to meet people and buy things and you know have fun. Only reason I'd go if I were in US. Any protos on display will get photographed a million billion times and posted here lol.

    I have to agree with you, Tfcon, in terms of 3rd party reveals has grown significantly every year. I think ALOT of things get thrown at us where we're like damn I didn't see that coming, or damn how am I gonna sneak this past my woman.

    Mmm its always the one I'm excited for cause its always the biggest blowout of new stuff. It's where MT debuted Pandinus, Guardia, Quantron, Hellfire, Cupola and Gundog if I remember right. So I'm sure they'll have some cool stuff this year.

    Not just them, every company pulls out the stops at TFcon, and with news on TF being unprecedentedly quiet as of late, I feel like every company is coming in thinking I'm gonna blow the competition away with what I have. I could be wrong

    I know MT will most likely be the 'right" Apeface for me, but KFC's got that "right now" Apeface. I'm a sucker for headmasters.

    It kind of reminds me of Steve Harvey's dating advice for women: "Do you want Mr. Right or do you want Mr. Right Now?" lol

    Oh, I agree the main reason to go is to meet people but the 3P reveals and prototypes are a nice bonus.

    Because they're much more open to third parties being present at all due to not being dictated by the whims of 3P haters (which exist in many places) or the restrictions imposed by events run by official companies or that have agreements with official companies to not allow unlicensed products be promoted or sold. And the general larger scale nature of the event relative specifically to the transformer fanbase in general as well.

    Which is pretty funny when you think about how the modern community and the hobby in general has dramatically changed thanks to unofficial releases. Takara having significantly ramped up their MP production due to fiercer and fiercer competition from unofficial stuff.

    Very interested in seeing more pics of this one.

    The KFC is tempting, but I think this one might be the way to go.

    I also know that I want the smaller FP Jizai design for sure, so I don't think I want to double dip with two of the MP scale Apeface.

    The KFC Horrorcons just have that look like a first try that guarantees someone else will do a better cleaner version IMO...

    How painful it is to see this with KFC's are close to release(which I'll get anyways)... I have a feeling we won't see more of this for a long, long time since Maketoys are so focused on doing seekers, Galaxy Force Starscream and THEN Darkwing & Dreadwind(Hydra & Buster colors too I'm sure)... Kind of cool that they are jumping around with ReMasters line but WISHED they focused on doing the rest of the Headmasters cast first... Would've loved to have Brainstorm, Weirdwolf(since Lupus was a let down for me...), Slugslinger even curious how they would've done a Sixshot maybe!

    Don't forget about the exclusives! That's my main reason for going. Plus it's just plain old fun to nerd out for a few days with like minded people
