Default Pre-registration Online

TFcon now has pre-registration online.

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

Quote:
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...
There is also a picture posted at www.tfcon.ca

Default 80s Toy Expo Programming Returns

TFcon's expansion to a two day event was 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 first day! So Sunday will see Canada's largest dealer room expand into all sorts of 80s related merchandise! Check out www.tfcon.ca for all the details.
