    TFNation returns to Birmingham and the Hilton Metropole (or dare we call it... Metroplex?) for their third show in 2018.

    Chime in if you'll be there!

    I love that crazy bastard. Saw him at a voice actor panel at Palm Springs comic con with John Bailey and Carlos Ferro. They were tremendously cool.

    TFNation have announced that they looking at holding a custom figure display at this year's event. You can read the announcement at TFNation® - Blog Post and I have copied it below/

    Transmission_Initiated
    Transmission ID: 00004
    TFNation_2018
    Operation: Seaspray in a Display

    We are looking to gauge interest in a Custom Figure showcase for TFNation 2018, where attendees will be able to show their skills and crafts in a dedicated location in The Forge. Do you create customs, be they simple paintjobs, scratch builds, junker repurposings, add-ons, or mash-ups? We want to hear from you!
    If enough interest is expressed, we are planning on locating the Custom / Kitbash feature in The Forge, and the figures displayed in lockable glass cabinets for all attendees to peruse and admire. We will create online forms for interested parties to fill in, asking for the name of the entry, rough size of the figure and ticket reference (only ticket holders will be able to display their custom work at this time). The custom entries must relate to Transformers, but can use any base molds, figures, or systems available.
    This is not a competition, simply a way to showcase your work to other fans! If the display is successful, there are plans to expand the focus on custom work, in the form of panels and competitions for future TFNation events.
    Does showing off your custom work to an expected audience of over 1000 fans appeal to you? Let us know, and help us make the display area a reality for TFNation 2018!

    Then Hank Hill will definitely attend the con to meet the writer of
    "LAAAAAAdy-Biiird!" :D 

    Cool that he wrote the original Man of Iron saga! :) 
    (Mr.Collins, not Mr.Hill :rolleyes:  )

    LOL, and I just looked up his name as I cited Crisis of Command in the comics topics when discussing Furman/Budiansky run and who else also wrote Marvel G1. It was always weird to me and I thought at first it was a typo to see Mike suddenly credited as the writer, not as the artist. And I love Crisis of Command to this day.

    Can't call it MetropleX until the 10th show. Right now it's Metropole III.
    Though they really should book it for the 10th, and do the decor like that. Even Hasbro would probably be like "Too funny to not help. We're in!"
