    I am both excited and nervous (mostly my wallet on the latter part - for all the upcoming things I'm going to want to preorder).

    I'm really hoping to see more IDW figures and (hopefully) even some of the upcoming movie figures from Dream Factory and Alien Attack. And of course MakeToys cross dimensions & Remaster lines, Toyworld's MP stuff, and FT Skyfire

    Excited to see reveals tomorrow!

    Just curious, but why would some of the retailers have private viewings, if TFCon is welcoming to 3rd party offerings? Is there really such a thing for TFCon Toronto?

    I'm hoping for more Voyager to Ultra-sized figures. Not everything has to scale with MP-10...

    Companies will bring prototypes to show retailers so they those retailers will want to sell the products, or at least know more about the products that are coming down the pipeline.

    Those prototypes might not be ready for consumption (ie. bad fit, no paint, etc), but may be good enough to illustrate to the retailer what the concept will turn into when its done

    That's one reason

    Another is companies might just want to reward convention goers that happen to be there and hype up products

    There's two Thunderwings already in the works, both announced at last year's TFcon if I recall currectly, and both based to varying degrees on the design from Stormbringer. One from Garatron that's mostly accurate to the comic and one from MMC that's a little bit their own interpretation and incorporates the Pretender gimmick.

    I'd like to see more upgrades. I'm pretty over full figures personally. But I'm guessing those sell better.

    Official reveals come from the 3P panel on Saturday

    In the past folks at the con area have had parties in hotel rooms hosted by either members of 3p or vendors who have been given prototypes to display. Photos usually float out on Twitter from guests

    Kinda surprised we didn't get any tonight

    Fluid transformation, you say? Well, Apollyon, it was nice knowing you. And I was someone who had virtually no issues with mine.

    If we see MT Highbrow and Brainstorm. Any Decepticon Headmasters and a MP Trailbreaker/Hoist and any kind of MP Jazz (be it one of the 2 we've already seen or a new one from Badcube or MMC) then that would be the perfect situation for me.

    If I was being greedy MP Skids in some form too even if it's just an announcement but I think that's highly unlikely.
