TFcon’s expansion to a 2 day convention was originally made possible through merging with the Canadian 80s Toy Expo on the Sunday of the event.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.
The tentative TFcon 2012 event schedule is now online. Check out the full list of programming by following the Event Schedule for TFcon 2012 link.
This is your last opportunity to preregister for TFcon 2012 and preorder the TFcon 2012 exclusive Shafter limited to 500 pieces. Online registration closes Sunday, July 15th at 11:55pm.
Due to the success of last years event, TFcon will host the 2nd Annual 3rd Party Product Panel at TFcon 2012. We have invited 3rd party product manufacturers to contribute to a panel focusing on new images of upcoming collector focused toys. We encourage all 3rd party companies to contact us to be involved in this presentation that will have information shared to fans around the world.
Speaking of which there is now less than a week to preorder the TFcon 2012 exclusive SHAFTER figure and preregister for TFcon 2012!
Check out these two special sneak-peek advance reviews of SHAFTER by Peaugh and Vangelus.
Due to the sale of 3rd party figures at TFcon the Hasbro New Product Preview and Q/A has been pulled from our programming. Hasbro Canada is still scheduled to attend TFcon 2012 and will have a product display and interact with the fans. We at TFcon apologize for any inconvenience and thank Hasbro Canada for all their help over the years. You can find below the official statement from Hasbro’s Corporate Communications team:
“Although it was communicated by TFcon that Hasbro would host a panel at TFcon this year, Hasbro will unfortunately not be able to participate in a panel. However, we continue to look forward to meeting fans on the convention floor on Saturday.”
