    The biggest thing that sucks about this is having to wait a year to see if Mr Cullen will attend the next convention.

    Not surprised this has happened though (in fact, surprised it wasn't announced sooner), and it's definitely for the best.

    It’s disappointing but I think it was the most sensible thing to. Better safe than sorry. The big shame is of course Cullen but no right choice.

    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.

    Where do you think Europe is? It's the first line in the post.

    “.......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
