    We welcome artist Mark Watts to our guest list for Retro Con 2018!

    [​IMG]

    Mark is responsible for some of the iconic artwork used in the G1 Transformers toy line! He did at least 45 commissioned paintings for Hasbro between the mid 80’s and early 90’s, most of which were used directly for the packaging of the products. Notable packaging illustrations he created include Shockwave, Jetfire, the Constructicons, the Stunticons, and all of the series one Minibots! He also did several paintings used for pack-in mail-away offers for the Transformers line, such as Reflector, the “Time Warrior” Autobot watch, and the Omnibots.

    Mark will have a booth in our guest section at the show all weekend, where he’ll be selling his Transformers prints, table art, and more. Meet someone that played a big part in the history of the original Transformers toy line!

    Read more about Mark here:

    Meet G1 Transformers Artist Mark Watts at Retro Con 2018!


    Mark sells high quality prints of his Transformers artwork at his website:

    Transformer Prints – Mark Watts Art


    You can also purchase Mark’s slick transformable “table art” featuring his Transformers works here:

    We're bringing back the coolest band in the universe! Unicron, Soundwave, Rumble, Hotrod, Arcee, Judge Quintesson, Bumblebee, and now Shockwave. Together they form... The
    Cybertronic Spree!

    Known across the galaxy for having cast aside their warring factions in the search for the ultimate party, these rockstars in disguise play music from The Transformers: The Movie, along with themes from hit movies, cartoons, video games, and more!

    The Cybertronic Spree will be attending Retro Con on Saturday, October 13th (tentative times are 10am to 1pm), where fans can hang out with the band and purchase exclusive band merchandise.

    But of course we can't stop there! The band will also be performing a concert that Saturday night at the nearby Arnold's Family Fun Center!

    **TICKETS WILL GO UP FOR SALE ON THURSDAY JULY 12TH!**

    If you missed the band last year, don't miss this chance to catch the magic! Their concert last year was regarded by many to be their favorite part of the weekend, and the band promises some new surprises for 2018!!
