    Very sensible decision made by a very hard working and caring group of people.

    It just means TFNation 2021 will be mega!

    Very sad news but been expecting it for a while. It's the right decision. Was going to be my first ever transformers convention, and meeting Peter Cullen along with the rest of the great lineup would've been incredible. Hopefully TFNation comes back stronger next year and if we're lucky they'll be able to book Mr. Cullen again and many more (Guido Guidi please). Feel sorry for the people organising as they must've put so much time and effort into planning this years event.

    Do we know what will happen with the Ed Pirrie Optimus Prime artwork? I really liked the look of it so if it's still possible for them to produce that I'd be keen to keep my order for that.

    As much as I hope it it won't happen, TFCon'll probably be cancelled too since october is only 2 months later.

    “.......it is important for us to explain this decision has been taken WITHOUT sadness or regret.”

    your condolences are more heartfelt than their statement....

    Will this be like tfcon recently where the organisers get to do all the toy reveals etc themselves and stream it out?

    Hope the planned panel with Andy Couzens is part of the planned content. Intrigued to find out the story behind why Transformers never stopped in Europe and what brought about the exclusive toys from that era

    Really been hitting home how much of a downer the cancellation has been. I was looking forward to it more than I realised because I've never been to a convention before, I've never got to even be around and interact with other TF fans since I was a kid (obviously excluding online with the fine people of TFW), and well, Peter Cullen. :( 

    I've rolled my leader ticket over for next year, hopefully the world will have gotten over this pandemic by then, and hopefully TFNation is able to come back better and stronger. Was hoping there would be an option to keep the order for the Ed Pirrie Optimus artwork which is a shame as I thought that looked nice. Only options for the art are refund or store vouchers. Given the art was already done and just had to be printed I'd have still gone in for that even without a Peter Cullen signature.
