TFcon is happy to announce we will be holding our first ever charity auction July 28th, 2012 for Make-A-Wish Canada (http://www.tfcon.ca/tfcon-announces-make-a-wish-canada-charity-auction).

The charity auction will feature many great unique items and we hope our community will help us raise as much as possible for the Make-A-Wish foundation. Even if you can not make the event you can donate via the sponsorship link at TFcon.ca

Please join us in helping to raise funds for the Make-A-Wish foundation.

Make-A-Wish® Canada creates magical moments for children between the ages of 3 and 17, living with life threatening medical conditions, through granting a child’s one true wish. Make-A-Wish® strives to create hope, strength and joy by giving a child a much needed respite from being sick, allowing them to experience the wholesome enjoyment of just being a “kid” again.

Make-A-Wish impacts the lives of families when they need to know that their community cares about what they are going through, as their child battles for his or her life.

Make-A-Wish exists for one reason only – to grant wishes to children living with life-threatening medical conditions. Thanks for helping to share the power of a wish®!

TFcon 2012 exclusive toy will be SHAFTER (http://www.tfcon.ca/tfcon-2012-exclusive-toy-will-be-shafter)

When his teammates need something special built, they call SHAFTER. After a stunning defeat and exile from the Savage Land, SHAFTER was determined to redeem himself. Called on by STRONGHOLD to completely redesign all fortifications after the breakout of TOXIN and his companions, SHAFTER is hard at work making sure every possible hole is plugged tight. His small size allows him to access many areas others can’t, but belies a strength that allows him to accomplish even the hardest jobs. SHAFTER’s mastery of civil engineering allows him to construct a solution from the ground up, drawing inspiration from the monuments of his home world and the wonders he’s found on Earth.

SHAFTER’s abilities at design aren’t just limited to blueprints, either, and his cunning strategies have turned defeat into victory numerous times. Even with all his defensive skills, SHAFTER is no stranger to the front lines. SHAFTER is durable enough for the most toughest jobsite, and can shrug off enemy fire while “giving as good as he gets” with his powerful hydraulic arms or his induction rivet-guns. SHAFTER intends to make sure that the next enemy spy looking for trouble finds a lot more than they bargain for, and to prove once and for all that great things can come from small packages.

Shafter is a redeco of the iGear Rager figure.

And don't forget that TFcon 2012 preregistration will go online tomorrow, May 1st!

TFcon Welcomes Collectible Toy Expo to 2012 Programming (http://www.tfcon.ca/tfcon-welcomes-collectible-toy-expo-to-2012-programming)

TFcon’s expansion to a 2 day convention was originally made possible through merging with the Canadian 80s Toy Expo on the Sunday of the event. This was necessary due to many dealers completely selling out of merchandise on the Saturday requiring a dealer room restock if a 2nd day was to be added

This year is no different with the Sunday bringing us one of Canada’s largest dealer rooms for 80s toy related merchandise consisting of dealers selling Super Heroes (Marvel, DC etc), Star Wars (new and vintage), Transformers (vintage and Japanese imports), G.I. Joe (vintage and modern), Masters of the Universe (vintage and classics), Wrestling, and tons of other Action Figures and collectibles.
