Anybody want to answer this?
If you have a 13 year old with an interest in Transformers, I cant imagine anywhere better you could take them.
Exactly what sort of things make it so?
There are hundreds of hours of videos on YouTube, there's an FAQ on the TFNation website and there's a separate thread for TFnation on TFW.
I don't know your kid, or you (presuming you're asking for your kid and you're not the 13 year old), and your question is quite broad so I can't really get into specifics. My broad answer is yes, a Transformers fan should enjoy a Transformers convention. Hopefully the resources I've listed should help you find an answer to this question. Good luck.
Bought some new shelves and moved some of my collection to it. Current set up is subject to change.
Tier 1. Voyage Plus seekers.
Tier 2. Deluxe and smaller
Tier 3: Com triple changers
Tier 4. Con Voyagers.
Gives me breathing room on my other selves now.
Do you know when someone is drop-dead gorgeous, but they're aware of it? Yeah.
Look at him. Total diva.
ALL OF THIS. WATCH PRIMAL.
Dammit! Broke the stand arm on my Eren Jaeger Figma figure. Does anyone who collect figma figures know a replacement stand that would fit with the same size peg?
Thought I’d put this on here but Argos have started getting the new Cyberverse ultimate armour figures.
I wish I could go back in time and get the Classics Blade figure... As it is I've ordered the below, the black robes version and Mullet Man:
Cool! Chris mcfeely certainly has access to at least some, and I know he had been talking about trying to coordinate buys from that Friedman sale - might be worth dropping him a message?
MASK Split Seconds- Stiletto and Skybolt
I've never seen a time like this as an adult collector:
G1 Transformers figures new and old are widely available (not to forget all the other iterations)
NECA are doing Ninja Turtles in their actual cartoon/movie/game designs
Masters of the Universe will return in the classic but articulated 5.5" style
GI Joe, MASK and Ghostbusters are all getting some sorta toylines again
There's a 4" AND 6" DC line, both fully articulated and cheap for what they are
Funko do caricatures across multiple lines and scales of just about any 'name' you can think of
Marvel Legends will give you a Wolverine with a hat, a Living Laser, or even something you actually want
And so on. But I can kinda sum up with the fact that comic books have now lead to TV shows (used to be unthinkable), which has led to related action figures for the people old enough to want a cup of tea during ad breaks lol
My local smyths has some siege omega in according to the website. Do i say screw it and get one while I'm out tomorrow? Oh decisions decisions.
Yes, especially if you have Micromasters for that base mode!
So, how often do you folks give in and pay slightly more for a figure just to get it quicker?
I did it recently for Spinister, but I'm generally 'good' about it. Like I still wind up checking prices on all my pre-orders* cos that shit adds up quick even if somewhere is just selling a line a quid cheaper each figure!
But fuck do I sit there like, 'I could be playing with that right now! There's people making videos and everything!'

Thank you very much @tikgnat and all the contributors, another phenomenal calendar and hopefully the portent of a wonderful year
Found this sorry state of affairs in a local charity shop yesterday.
Needless to say, it stayed where it was...
Reminds me of sad Keanu.
Beast Machine Thrust and Blackarachnia
Good morning Threadizens! Sunshiny and toyish in these mapless wilds South of the River.
(Or, when you meet that person all your mates have been saying is just like you but neither of you can see it.)
Alter ids, Nature lies!
Predacons through the ages, OG to the darkness of future past!
(That’s Cheetor btw. He’s emo.)
(Primal is SUPER embarrassed. Like, constantly.)
In which Nightbird has been watching too much Clone Wars.
(Can’t wait for the continuation! Annie and Ahsoka had SO better team up again. And Obi-Wan should adopt a baby Sith gremlin. People who love each other, caught in deadly peril! This is what the people want!)
The fixed stars move!
