TFcon 2013 Charity Auction for Make-A-Wish Canada

TFcon 2013 is pleased to announce that they will once again be hosting a charity auction for Make-A-Wish Canada on Saturday, July 27th, 2013. Last year TFcon raised $2705 in their first ever charity auction.

The charity auction will feature many great unique donations and we hope our community will help us raise as much as possible for the Make-A-Wish foundation. If you wish to donate an item for the auction please email the convention.

Make-A-Wish® Canada creates magical moments for children between the ages of 3 and 17, living with life threatening medical conditions, through granting a child’s one true wish. Make-A-Wish® strives to create hope, strength and joy by giving a child a much needed respite from being sick, allowing them to experience the wholesome enjoyment of just being a “kid” again.

Make-A-Wish impacts the lives of families when they need to know that their community cares about what they are going through, as their child battles for his or her life.

Make-A-Wish exists for one reason only – to grant wishes to children living with life-threatening medical conditions. Thanks for helping to share the power of a wish®!



TFcon – The world's largest fan-run Transformers convention will take place July 26th to 28th, 2013 in Toronto, Ontario at the Delta Meadowvale Resort and Conference Centre.

TFcon 2013 hotel block is now available, the group rate is good for July 24 to July 31, 2013 at the price of $109 per room. No deposit is required to reserve your room now. You have until July 23rd to cancel your room if you can't make the convention.

Well since botcon sucks now and hasbro leaves all the big TF reveals for SDCC anyways, I may try to go to tfcon next year. Plus I never visited canada.

I look forward to seeing you all there again next year. And for another great weekend of 3P reveals.

but really, this is awesome... and nearly a year in advance! that's so awesome... time to start some planning action...
Transbot90210
Sounds like a lot of Americans are excited about this.


I am curious, is it the large 3P presence that makes this Con so attractive?

Personally, the 3P panel this year had more news than all other cons put together.
Autovolt 127
Maybe next year I might actually attend.....who knows?
Aaron
Vacation time already put in for. Let's do this thing!
Paradigm-Shift Prime

I was just wondering the same thing lol.

Lets just say I feel the need, the need for speed, and there was I time I lived 2 hours away from Vancouver
Optimist_Prime
I am gonna do all I can to attend next year as well. I came up this year and it was the best TF convention I have been to.
Transbot90210
WOW TFCon being comparied to all the big boys liek BOTCON. I'm glad I supported this Con since year one. The way I see it, as long as the 3P trend continues to grow, this con will continue to grow.

Botcon is limited to Hasbro and that it, and we all know how grand Hasbro has been recently. So ya, I see it.

I look forward to talking to the FP guys again next year.

The weekend TFCon 2013 is on marks 10 years since I attended my first Transformers convention, OTFCC 2003 in Chicago. And after hearing all the fun that was had this year, I am going to be trying my hardest to attend next year. Not been in Canada since 2001. Time I went back.

Plus, having a year to plan makes it far easier.

I didn't care about anything third-party before TFcon, and although I do now, wanting to go in 2013 has 0% to do with reveals from third-parties or Hasbro and 100% to do with the people and the experience. Going to TFcon or Botcon solely for the toys is the wrong reason to go at all.
Chris Campbell
I think this is going to be my first ever toy convention. Sounds too good to pass up. Might fly, or take a long road trip from DC.

I've been doing it wrong for 10 years. LOL

I use to go to cons to do one walk around, do another to buy what I want and then leave.

This year I went and mingled and went to panels and had a much better experience.(I also bought)

Next year I may dive in and make it a whole weekend thing and join local board members and our American friends in some TFW after hours fun.

And booked! I had to skip out on staying at the hotel this year. Don't want to do that again if I don't have to. Great hotel for the family and for the con.

Now how about some hints for next year's exclusive.
