    Wow, this had so much potential! If these stories really were supposed to be from different iterations of the franchise, maybe there's hope something similar could still happen! How about Animated season 4 being told in comic form? Or some Beast Era stuff? There are so many possibilities.

    It's not really official so that might be the reason

    Have you not seen any guest lists for these cons? It’s not just about whys currently going on. It’s guests who have working with transformers. Bob Budiansky is going. He hasn’t worked on anything Transformers since 2006 and before that? Almost 20 years.

    Not even really, it’s completely unofficial.

    Tfwiki does not catalogue anything unofficially related to transformers. No 3rd party toys or groups and no cons that are no part of Hasbro. It’s been a rule since day one.

    It was online comics some what by the people who did botcon. It was a sequel to beast machines about unicron returning and that toyline in 2003 of all the repaints that was released. The finale was out in trade. The reason IDW Never releases it because they had nothing to do with it it even by the end. It was released online and anything physical was released by diamond

    I generally don't bother since none of them are in my country, but that's equally odd to me, you'd think you would go for people currently working on it over people who used to but no longer do.

    That’s not even what any conventions do.

    They’re celebrations of transformers. They invite a lot of people to be guests and share their experiences and stories about their time working on transformers.

    I'm hoping to make it to TFNation this year. It'll be my first time, and it'll be my first time cosplaying from Transformers.

    That's some serious Tardis shenanigans that allowed you Brits to experience Beast Machines in the eighties.

    And I would imagine as these unofficially official kind of comics go that, assuming they even want to, IDW trying to acquire the rights to reprint those books would probably be a nightmare.


    The people currently working on it are usually very busy actually working on it and aren't necessarily able to find the time to visit conventions. It doesn't mean that they never do, Roberts visited conventions while he was writing MTMTE/LL all the time, which is probably why he's willing to still find the time to attend them now.
