    I wouldn't blame Baltimore. The TFCon organizers chose this date and location. To be fair though, their past fall TFCons have been this same weekend each year (my wife's birthday weekend, I can't forget that). I don't know if they knew in advance when booking the reservation if Baltimore had other events that weekend.

    As for the ticket, I see that there's a name on mine, but I don't know if they are checking ID's or if I can just edit the name on it.

    I just went into my Event Brite Account and it will let me assign the ticket to someone else. :)

    What I meant to say is the Baltimore Hilton Inner Harbor. All I have had is problems with my reservation since I booked it. I have nothing against the city of Baltimore. It is a really cool place.

    Baltimore has over the past decade or more gone far out of it's way to drive tourism from the city based upon the bumbling lack of infrastructure investments, crumbling existing infrastructure & politics, politics, politics. Not been the same after losing Otakon. No one to blame but themselves for the reality of the situation. Just hoping I find stores open to dine & shop based upon supply chain issues.

    May I ask - via pm to me - what you have hit for issues? All I did was make the reservation & bam done. Been a Hilton user for over 20 years now. Never an issue worldwide. Far cry from Marriott, Sheraton & Hyatt.

    I hope if we have another TFCon it won't be held the same weekend as another con and possibly holiday events. This is especially bad timing for everybody, I think. Parking around here can be questionable at the best of times, so I will just say that I am very glad I can walk to the Hilton from my house, because con weekend sounds like it's going to be especially hellish for parking.

    Impossible this year as everyone was coming out of the closet to get events going again & they crammed everything they wanted to do into the times left available within a 3-5 year or longer booking calendar. You get whats available for consideration when its "last minute" in the convention industry.

    I think it's great we got someone from Cyberverse. i always thought the newer shows don't get much or if at all any guests for TFCon. Xavier's Dead End was a highlight for me, he's got a cool voice. I hope more future cons start diversifying a little more like this with what parts of the franchise our guests are from.

    Is there anyway to cancel a TFcon ticket and get a refund?

    Last I knew all sales are final. But apparently you can transfer the ownership of the ticket to someone else. You have to login to your Eventbrite account to do it.

    Yooo I am very much looking for a ticket right now, I'll give you your refund in exchange for the ticket. I'll buy a ticket off whoever's got one.

    Seems I have stumbled on the fact that there is at least one or more exclusives being announced this week sometime. They put up a map of the venue on the TFCon website and it has Ages3&up with the word exclusives below it. The currently announced one if from The Chosen Prime.

    When I went in 2019 they announced most of the exclusives like two days before, and even then there were still a couple things that surprised me saturday morning walking onto the show floor.

    I'm trying to temper my expectations with everything going on with the supply chain, but MMC/OX, FansHobby, and XTB are all sponsors, so they remain within the realm of possibility.

    Really hoping for a Eris repaint. Love the mold. Hopefully they do not double dip again like they did with Sphinx; the Regenesis and Black/Gold repaint were nice but I would prefer two different figures from two different companies. Wednesday will hopefully be a good day for reveals.

    Hopefully they shipped the exclusives early in anticipation of shipping issues. Preferably by air freight and not the slow boat.

    If MMC shows up with Eris and FansHobby shows up with their Fire Guts God Ginrai I'll have blown my wad by 9:30 Saturday.

    Yeah, I was eyeing that "Ages3&Up exclusives" thing on the map too. Been a little worried about not having heard any more about con exclusives since the NA Pistolonyx, but seeing that makes me sure that there's more coming.

    I would love it if Fire Guts was one but realistically it is too big a figure to do an exclusive with and pre-orders are not even up yet. It is not beyond reality for Fire Guts to be on display in the dealer room. The Chosen Prime does a huge display case wall with all of the 3rd party current releases and to be soon released samples. Historically exclusives are smaller figures at a lower price point.
