    Its always neat to see an another transformer convention though its name is kinda strange I know it seemsounds to be supposed to mean retrocon oh well but hopefully they don't retcon it XD

    I'm sold - there are cheap flights from Belgrade to Malmö, and Helsingborg is a short train ride away.

    Now way I'm attending it due to being on the other side of the world. Than name though, why hasn't anyone used it yet? It's brilliant.

    That name and art make me think it'll be some weird fix fic of MTMTE ...

    Which is not to say that some people might think there are parts of that worth rewriting, but still.

    I can assure you, it has nothing to do with MTMTE, they just picked some of my art that happened to have a lot of MTMTE in it.

    Not only the Swedes, everyone is welcome ;)  thanks for the kind words!

    I echo Darkspeed's sentiments. Thomas is a wonderful artist and a passionate TF fan. With a little energon (and a little luck) he'll be working for IDW one day, so give him your support.

    Check out more of his stuff in his DeviantArt Gallery!

    Nope, it's supposed to be RetCon, as in retroactive continuity. Like a reboot which doesn't affect the status quo because it happened in the past and therefore always happened. Which happens a lot in Transformers, or has over the years. Great name for a Con, and I like those bits of line art. Look forward to a glimpse of the full comic, I wonder if I'll be able to get one sent to the UK?

    Thomas is my art-bro and I couldn't be more proud of him. I'm genuinely sad that I can't attend this convention this year, but I'll definitely be looking into going next year!

    Oh, Chris, you're always such an ego-boost! And thanks for the free advertisement ;) 

    As off now I don't think we'll be able to send out the comic or any other material as it's supposed to be a convention exclusive, sorry. But I will make sure to post line art from it to my different accounts and pages, so you can always keep a look out there.

    *Art-bro fist* Thanks Nate! It sucks you won't be able to attend but hopefully you'll be with us in spirit. And yes, next time is a must!

    These things always pop up at the worst times for me. Move to Sweden and miss botcon. Now I have to go to the states when this is going on. Argh :p
