    Wichita, Kansas - TFEXPO ANNOUNCES DATES FOR 2014 SHOW AND FIRST GUEST NEIL ROSS

    TFExpo is proud to announce our fourth Transformers convention in Wichita, Kansas coming next summer! TFExpo 2014 will be held at the Holiday Inn at Kellogg and Rock Road August 1st-3rd. That’s right, in celebration of thirty years of our favorite transforming robots, TFExpo 2014 will be a full weekend show!

    To help us celebrate, we’re bringing in fan favorite voice actor Neil Ross as our first guest! Fans of Transformers Generation 1 (and many other 80’s cartoons) will remember Neil’s many distinctive voices. Neil performed the roles of Springer, Slag, Bonecrusher, and Hook in Transformers, as well as Dusty and Shipwreck in the original G.I.Joe cartoon. And he voiced both Keith and Pidge in Voltron! But that’s only scratching the surface of Neil’s long and varied career. For a complete list of credits, head to IMDb - Movies, TV and Celebrities.

    There will be many more exciting announcements in the months ahead, so stay tuned! Our website will be renovated soon for TFExpo 2014, and then we’ll open pre-registration for the show. In the meantime, like TFExpo on Facebook and follow us on Twitter for all the latest updates.
    We’ll see you at TFExpo 2014!

    I was tempted to go to the last one since I live so close. I should probably hit it up this next one.

    The current plan is, if there are any left over, we may offer them after the show online. But we encourage folks to attend the convention instead, if possible. Those who have attended in the past have praised our convention for being affordable and the easy access they have to our guests. While the city of Wichita is not exactly the most "happening" town, the city does have its amenities: a Simon shopping mall across the street from the hotel (and a Toy's R Us), the National Baseball Congress World Series will be going during that weekend, the world's largest 3D IMAX theater, etc. I also recommend that, if Wichita's airport rates are too steep, flying into OKC and KC and then renting a car might be more affordable, especially if you are carpooling.

    Ill be there as a dealer again. Last year was awesome! The parts party in the lobby and watching the Movie with Flint Dille was really cool.

    This year promises to be bigger and better.

    A couple of announcements:

    Our BMOG exclusives are in hand. Check out the BMOG thread in the 3rd party forum for in-hand pictures with Generations Springer and Beast Hunters Optimus Prime.

    Also, we're proud to announce General Admission pricing...what you'll pay at the door each day. The best deal, however, is still to purchase at least a Basic Registration for $40. This includes a weekend pass, a t-shirt and, newly announced, a random back-issue Transformers comic-book courtesy of Wichita, KS comic book store Prairie Dog Comics and Cards. You only have until July 6th to buy in to that.

    Lastly, we have also posted our schedule of events on website. So if you've been waiting as to what amazing things we have in store for you, these are now available. And we may be adding some extra surprises to the schedule as we get closer to the date.

    So, if you've been on the fence on attending this great Transformers fan event, hopefully this is the news you've been waiting for!! Stop by TFExpo today!
