    They already did a bunch of PO announcements outside of TFCon.

    I think we'll just see a bunch of new renders during the event.

    I think that FT is just going to do a clip show at TFCon, celebrating how many figures they’ve released, then just pack it up and go home. It’s going to be awesome and emotional for everyone.

    A greatest hits tribute!

    "Hey, any of you guys out there remember a little release called Road King?!"

    LOL. As much as I love the FansToys, this sounds like something they'd do.

    Given that FT has ceased all communications with the public a whole year ago, I don't see any reason to think that they will break that streak now.

    Hello everyone

    I've had a lot going on in my life this past year (almost all good things) and I suspect that it's obvious with my lack of updates on the original post, I haven't had a lot of time to focus on Fans Toys or Transformers. I'm in a good spot, and that's great news for me... but an unfortunate side-effect is that my logging/tracking of Fans Toys information has been very poor lately.

    Tracking/maintaining the data is what is important as this hobby brings a lot of joy to a lot of people. I'm happy to know that the log I started keeping for myself some years ago has added value/enjoyment for other folks. That being said, the data needs a new caretaker who will do a better job than me, and I need to hand this off to somebody.

    Here are my thoughts:

    #1 A number of people have contributed and they have been thanked in the update notes. I'd like to make sure those folks continue to get credit for their contributions.
    #2 The data is what is important as it has the potential to outlast all of us. We are simply the caretakers of the data.
    #3 As long as #1 is observed, I personally don't care how/where the data is maintained. TFW2005 is a great place given that the site has critical mass and is freely available to people everywhere. I also think that a wiki format or something that breaks down the exceptionally long thread we currently have would be a good alternative.

    I don't know if a Moderator can switch the original thread over to somebody else, or if a new thread needs to be created.

    @Marcelo Antunes and @Curium have shown a lot of enthusiasm for this kind of information in the past.... would either of you be interested in taking the reins?

    Thanks!

    As far as the reveals from TFCon Baltimore, not disappointed. I'm sure a Gears is coming too from them.

    Yeah, the images Blastser has been leaking have been real nice. Except Outback. I'd say I'm all in, but I'm a little afraid of what a Scourge or Chromedome is gonna cost from FT. Still, it'll be tough to say no to Powerglide, and barring anything particularly egregious, they probably got me for at least a scourge. If nothing else the additional die cast and different finish from FT should help differentiate Scourge from his Sweeps.

    They're not leaks, they're from the panel.

    No, I think my meaning was almost completely lost. Thankfully, he was there to correct me.

    Outback, Scourge and Powerglide are great news. Chromedome is ok. I don't really need him so fast because I have and like the MakeToys one.

    FTs has some interesting characters up the pipeline, but right now FTSs are slow with releasing new products. So I guess we won't see the three before 2023/24.

    I must say I'm really disappointed to not see anything about Beserk.

    Yay, a bunch of renders for characters that have already been released by other companies. Yaaaaaaaaaaaay.

    I think a lot of it looks good, but these reveals were pretty underwhelming. At the very least, they could have showed off a Brainstorm or a Highbrow instead of Chromdome - something new that nobody has an option for in their collection to create some excitement.

    Any sign of life for the Aerialbots would have been nice, too.
