    It's always great to see Alex.

    As a bit of a bonus the Central Canada Comic Con Drift #4 Exclusive Comic from Alex Milne will be available to be purchased at TFCon for $10 each.

    When Alex designed the cover art he made the back cover as a sketch cover! For a small fee Alex will do a character sketch on that back cover making your Drift #4 Exclusive a one of a kind collectible!

    Here's the cover art followed by the sketch of Deadlock, Drift before he was Drift :)

    I just made a post regarding the continuation of the original Marvel series and with this series actually being continued, would they consider picking up on War Within where it left off. This is a huge request, but to anyone attending TFCon, can someone PLEASE ask Furman, or any of the IDW staff (not sure on that note) if War Within is being considered for continuation. I would GREATLY appreciate this.

    Hey didn't China's convention come around this time when they surprisingly gave us a peak at those Generations toys?

    What was is called Cybertron Con or something?

    My point is with that damn bayformers movie doing so well, will they stop swimming in their money bin for a sec to throw poor ol' us another bone?

    Or should we just be grateful that Bay is now rich enough to be a James Bond villain.

    IDK.....
