It is with great regret that we must inform the attendees of TFcon Toronto 2014 that Sue Blu has broken her leg and will not be able to travel to Toronto for this weekend. Her doctor has told her absolutely no traveling. There are 10 screws in her leg and it would be dangerous to fly because of a potential blood clot.
As a result of this turn of events Sue is going to try and Skype into her scheduled panel times this year so she can join us remotely from LA. Please find the video that Sue has made for everyone below.

FUNCTION: Construction Engineer / Hero of Timelines
“The things I have seen….. it’s big…….. bigger then the Matrix”
Profile: It’s been a long and hard road for SHAFTER. Travelling from one time stream to another, visiting one “Animated” world, another “Primed” for action, while keeping one at “Bay” so that the powers that be don’t spill over into each other. SHAFTER has been changing and engineering a new body for himself to match his surroundings. He has seen some crazy stuff, and somehow his spark still keeps it all together. Back in the early days on his home planet, SHAFTER was originally considered for the HERCULES sub-group due to his amazing body re-engineering skills and some even rumor he might have helped with the early concepts of combiner technology. Cool, calm and collected, Shafter a real ladies’ bot, but if you cross him, you might end up on the receiving end of his CRAGUN; a chromed out pistol that while might be small, packs enough punch to take out even the most aggressive Destron. He currently is carrying a rivalry with AXIS, the only Destron to sport the C-14 body type.
