TFExpo is also proud to bring you our first ever Customs Workshop, courtesy of our guest designer, Javaco. Javaco will be bringing special UPGRADE SETS for our attendees to purchase at the show. Bring along your Generations Blitzwing or Doubledealer to lord over your villainous 'bots in the upgraded form of OPPRESSOR. Available in two different versions, G1 and "Lips" heads, and also includes a new gun! Also available will be "Imitator", upgrading your Universe Inferno into a certain fire-themed 'bot who dreams of one day being a hero. Imitator is available in standard and battle-damaged versions, with head-only and full conversion kits available, which include a new chestplate and shoulder-mounted launcher, as well as an iconic rifle. Javaco's Workshop is FREE for our attendees to use, with paint, brushes and other supplies available at no charge. Just buy the kit you want and get started! Saturday only!

Saturday Night, our Ultra and Premium attendees will enjoy the Saturday Night Dinner and Script Reading Event. Our story this year is the fan-submitted script "The Lost King", starring Sumalee Montano as Arcee and Neil Ross as Slag and Springer! We'll be casting attendees in the roles of Starscream, Blurr, Chromia, Eradicon, and the Narrator, so if you think you've got what it takes to make your voice heard alongside the pros, make sure you audition at the show. Saturday Night Dinner Tickets are available individually as well, but you MUST pre-register to attend. Registration ends THIS SUNDAY, so please don't wait!

With registration winding down, so does the TFExpo Special Rate at Holiday Inn. There are only a few rooms left at this rate, and the rate will go inactive Monday July 14th at the close of business. With MANY events happening in Wichita the weekend of TFExpo, hotel rooms are expected to sell out across the city. Do NOT wait to book your hotel!

For more information, or to register now, go to TFExpo.com! Time is running out to reserve your place at the biggest Transformers-themed event in the region. We'll see you at the show.

TFcon Toronto 2014 attendee exclusive revealed: PESTILENCE

Posted on 07-11-2014 at 10:03 AM by Super_Megatron under Conventions
pestilence ALLEGIANCE: DESTRONS
FUNCTION: TOXIN CREATION

One of the many drones created by TOXIN to watch his skidplate while he plots something bigger then his fellow Destrons can ever understand. PESTILENCE much like the cyber laser he was forged from, is fast, exact and sharp. When many of these units are together, their AI become one and try to work as a team to destroy their target. Wearing 2 turbo boots on each side of it’s super structure helps PESTILENCE get that jolt of speed needed to knock-down it’s prey before snuffing out it’s spark or dragging it’s shell of a body to TOXIN for some experiments. Due to it being a drone, it’s not used to unique situations or bots that are straight up unpredictable. While in groups, their AI will try to work together, but also makes all surrounding units function in a similar fashion, making the pack as a whole very easy to read.

TFcon Toronto – The world's largest fan-run Transformers convention will take place this weekend July 11th to 13th, 2014. TFcon will return to the Delta Meadowvale Hotel and Conference Centre to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of the Transformers.

TFcon Toronto 2014 features Canada's largest dealer room for Transformers merchandise, question and answer panels and autograph sessions with many special guests including SUSAN BLU the voice of Generation 1 Arcee and voice director for Beast Wars, Beast Machines and Transformers Animated (via Skype), GREGG BERGER the voice of G1 Grimlock, GARRY CHALK the voice of Optimus Primal in Beast Wars and Beast Machines and Optimus Prime in Armada, Energon and Cybertron as well as AARON ARCHER former Creative Lead for all Transformers partnerships, NEIL KAPLAN the voice of Optimus Prime in Robots in Disguise, SARAH STONE artist for IDW’s Transformers: Windblade miniseries, Transformers: Robots in Disguise ongoing series comic book artist ANDREW GRIFFITH, Transformers: More Than Meets The Eye ongoing series comic book artist ALEX MILNE, Transformers toy designer and artist MARVIN MARIANO, the man behind LilFormers MATT MOYLAN, Transformers artist DAN KHANNA and a live performance by THE CYBERTRONIC SPREE as well as PEAUGH and VANGELUS.

Charticon - Farewell

Posted on 07-03-2014 at 12:45 AM by Superquad7 under Conventions
Sharkticon-01 For those of you in North Carolina who enjoyed Charticon 2013, it is with much saddness that we bring you this news from the organizers of the Charticon convention from their website:


"It is with a heavy spark that we bring you this announcement, Charticon Army.

Charticon 2013 was an incredible experience. However, for many reasons, we will not be proceeding with another show.

We came up with an aggressive strategy to crowdfund the show for 2015, but were not able to meet that goal. We thank each and every one of you who supported and participated in the Charticon Club, as well as those who wanted to support, but were unable.

As a result, we will be unable to proceed with the pre-Charticon 2015 exclusive Eros through Get Right Robot as well. Be that as it may, please continue to show Get Right Robot support for its continued projects.

We felt it best to retire the Charticon name, and hopefully from its ashes, its spirit will live on through a new initiative.

‘Til All Are One"



For those who attended in 2013, we know that the convention was a fantastic fan experience, which makes this news all the sadder. We already reported that there was to be no convention for 2014, but the organizers were once planning to bring things back in 2015. Since all future plans are currently canceled, you can certainly reminisce by going to our Charticon 2013 Photo Galleies. We here at TFW2005.COM wish the organizers all of the very best in their future endeavors, and rest assured if the convention is to return - even with a new name - we'll be here to report!
