TFcon’s expansion to a 2 day convention 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 Saturday requiring a dealer room restock if a 2nd day was to be added. This year is no different with the Sunday bringing us Canada’s largest dealer room 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. We will also welcome new guests to the convention on the Sunday.
We are happy to welcome back Transformers comic book artist Alex Milne to TFcon 2011. He will be setup in the TFcon artist alley all weekend long signing and sketching for fans. Alex did the packaging art for our convention exclusive Stronghold this year as well as the art for the comic that will be included in the TFcon 2011 program.
Alex has worked on Transformers Energon #26-29 and 31; G.I. Joe vs. the Transformers: The Art of War #4 and 5; as well as IDW’s Megatron Origin; the Transformers (2007) Official Movie Adaptation; Spotlight: Arcee; The Reign of Starscream; Transformers: Alliance; Revenge of the Fallen Movie Adaptation issue 3; Tales of the Fallen #5 Ravage, #6 Arcee; The Transformers: Drift; and The Transformers (issues 16-18).
The voice of Generation 1 Perceptor; Mr. Eiding will be taking part in Q&A panel and autograph sessions with the attendees of the Canadian Transformers Collectors Convention.
With the growing popularity of 3rd party Transformers related products TFcon announces the first annual 3rd party product panel for TFcon 2011.
