TFcon now has pre-registration online (http://tfcon.eventbrite.com/).

This year's exclusive is Stronghold, produced by Head Robots!

The TFcon 2011 exclusive is Stronghold, produced by Head Robots. Designed for the Universe Onslaught mold and cross compatible with Generation 1 Headmasters, Stronghold will be limited to 700 pieces. This is a high-quality upgrade kit that contains a transforming head with ball joints and clear blue eyepiece, two photon rifles, one assault cannon, and a backpack. The backpack features many mounting points so the guns can be configured in many ways. This exclusive will come with a bonus set of Reprolabels that will transform your old action figure into an all new character for your collection.

In command of a lost band of Transformers from before the Great War, Stronghold must now deal with the likes of an escapee war criminal in the form of Zarak. Armed with his Master Cannon and double blasters, this leader of the fabled Head Robots is a force to be reckoned with now that he holds the plans to the mysterious project Maximus...

The 2nd TFcon 2011 exclusive is Toxin! (http://www.tfcon.ca/2nd-tfcon-2011-exclusive-announced-head-robots-toxin)

When Lord Zarak needed someone to help copy the Headmaster and Transtector technology that Stronghold pioneered, he turned to Toxin. Toxin biggest claim to fame back on Cybertron was the mass cloning process of Reflector which bulked out Megatron‘s army during the early days of the war. He made 3 special clones for himself Edge, Shield and Bullet (Dubbed the NIGHT OPS SFX) as his hired goons to help get him needed “materials” for future experiments.

All was going well for Toxin till he along with Lord Zarak got captured by the Autobots. His personal Transtector body was destroyed in the scuffle and now he hopes to break free and commandeer a new one.

Produced by Head Robots, you can now give your headless G1 figures a much needed upgrade. This figure is limited to only 100 pieces and limited to one per attendee.
