Transformers Convention News

TFNation have announced another guest for their upcoming convention which takes place from 11th August 2017 until 13th August 2017 at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole hotel in Birmingham England.

Operation: Kei Zama to attend TFNation 2017

With IDW’s universe of Transformers comics going from strength to strength, the depth of talent involved in creating them grows ever greater and now we at TFNation are pleased to bring more of that greatness to you, in the form of Kei Zama, returning for our second year.

Starting with her series of covers for IDW’s Transformer line in September 2015, Kei-sensei has rapidly gained a large fan following, due to her mean and gritty artistic style, as well as her stunning commission work. Following on from her cover work, she is now bringing the continuing adventures of Optimus Prime to life (along with writer John Barber and colourist Josh Burcham) in his current titular series.

Outside of Transformers, Kei-sensei made her Marvel comics art debut with last year’s Scarlet Witch #10, has provided art for Sparklight comics, as well as covers for IDW’s Atomic Robo, and recently achieved a personal dream in working on an ABC Warriors-related piece for Fleetway/2000ad. Her Blackblood-themed story (written by the mighty Patt Mills) is set to show off her undeniable talent for monochrome imagery and prove a perfect fit for the tone of this title.

We advise all our attendees to keep an eye on Kei-sensei’s blog http://steelandstarlight.com/ for details of her commission list, as the event draws closer.

Kei Zama will be signing autographs, discussing classic British rock bands and selling artwork (including her highly-prized sketchbooks) at TFNation 2017 at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole Hotel. We look forward to seeing you there!

Transformers Convention News

TFNation have posted an update regarding hotel rooms at the Hilton for their 2017 convention.

Transmission_Initiated
Transmission ID: 00008
TFNation_2017
Operation: Hotel Update

First off, we are just so grateful to all of our supporters for what has been an incredible 18 months! It has been heartening for us to see the ever-growing support of the entire TFNation family (attendees, traders, guests, volunteers and crew from all walks of TF fandom) coming together to share their passion.

One of the results of this union has been a markedly increased demand for this years’ convention-rate rooms at the Hilton Metropole. Due to this demand, the remaining allocation has become limited and, naturally, we have received a lot of questions regarding the remaining rooms. We therefore want to take this opportunity to answer some of these points, provide some information and keep everyone up to date. So let's begin with...

1. ARE ALL OF THE DISCOUNTED ROOMS SOLD OUT?

No. Although some room dates/types have sold out, there are some still free to book. At the time of posting, the following options are still available.

  • Wednesday 9th – Single Deluxe, Twin Deluxe, Queen Family
  • Thursday 10th - No rooms available at our discounted rate
  • Friday 11th –Single Deluxe, Queen Deluxe (extremely limited), Queen Executive Rooms
  • Saturday 12th – Single Deluxe
  • Sunday 13th - No rooms available at our discounted rate
  • Monday 14th – Twin Deluxe, Queen Family
  • Tuesday 15th – Twin Deluxe, Queen Family

2. WILL TFNATION RECEIVE ANY OTHER DISCOUNTED ROOMS?

We have already liaised with the hotel and it is very unlikely that we will be afforded any more rooms at the convention-rate, as they have to cater for multiple events within the Hilton complex, as well as demand from “Quiltcon” which expects over 25,000 visitors that weekend. With this in mind, we encourage you to make look into alternatives now, if you are unable to secure your first choice room.

3. WHAT TO DO IF YOUR ROOM CHOICES ARE UNAVAILABLE

There are multiple ways you can book alternative accommodation, so stay calm, and start planning your hotel options now. Remember, this is where you will sleep AFTER enjoying all the convention's events. While staying outside of the main hotel may add extra time when returning to your room, it will not impact the jokes in the bar, the workshops we will announce shortly, the panels, the guests or your friends who you will no doubt meet that weekend.

Below, we will list the options you can take now, to assist your search. We advise you to take prompt action as holding out for your preferred room to become available again may only further reduce your options.

4. BOOK WHAT YOU CAN

As noted above; there are some Hilton options left. If you can book one or two nights at the discount rate, you may have more flexibility, financially, to book other nights either at the Hilton or elsewhere.

5. FIND A ROOMMATE

We will shortly open a thread on our Facebook page for people looking for roommates. If there is a spare bed in your room, please consider assisting a fellow fan. We will be monitoring the group to ensure the process runs fair.

6. THE HILTON WEBSITE

Although the convention rate rooms are selling quickly, the Hilton, like most hotels, reserves a portion of rooms for public sale. 

Please check out their site at http://bit.ly/1RMUtdF for standard room rates. If you already have some nights booked at the Hilton, booking a further night, directly, will allow you to remain at the venue for longer. After purchase, we advise you to phone the hotel and enquire if they can “stitch” the two bookings together. NOTE: this does not mean the Hilton can amend prices.

7. THIRD PARTY HILTON ROOM WEBSITES

Third party websites also sell some of the publicly available rooms at the Hilton. While some bookings will be cheaper than the Hilton's own website, payment dates and breakfast options may vary - always read the terms. We suggest you try the following:

8. OTHER HOTELS

Shortly, will update our website to provide you with a FULL list of alternative accommodation in the area as there are several options within walking distance, or a short commute. To assist folks looking now, we suggest four of the most popular alternative hotels are worth checking out;

  • Hotel Ibis Styles Birmingham Airport NEC
  • Hotel Novotel Birmingham Airport
  • Hotel Ibis Budget Birmingham Airport
  • Hotel Ibis Birmingham Airport

All four options can be researched by going to their official group page at http://www.accorhotels.com/gb/united-kingdom/index.shtml

9. WHAT NOT TO DO

In previous years, a small number of people have called the Hilton directly and have been less than polite to reception staff. This serves little purpose but to damage TFNation's relationship with the Hilton and may, in fact, impact future years' allocations. We strongly urge our attendees not to do this - reception staff do not have the authority to give you additional discounted rooms, or change booked rates, and do not deserve to be treated badly during their day job.

In addition, we know our core team is quite visible and friendly, but messaging them directly to resolve your issues will only cause you extra delays. The TFNation crew will be looking at queries received through the main TFN Facebook page, Twitter, email, and prioritising them as they come in, to ensure attendees are treated fairly – thank you for your understanding here.

Finally, please do not attempt to book rooms at full rate, only to request a switch to the convention rate nearer the date. It does not work... especially when people write on our page about their intent to try it.

10. THE ALLOCATION PROCESS EXPLAINED

We have received a lot of questions along the lines of “why doesn’t the hotel give us all of the rooms – surely it is better for them to sell them all?”. We want to address this point, rather than try do dodge it.

Throughout the year, regular rooms at the Hilton can sell for anywhere between £100.00 and £300.00 per night, depending on how busy the NEC is that weekend. (Try a few searches on the website – you’ll see what we mean!) Now consider how cheap the TFNation rate is in comparison to this.

When putting the two figures side by side, it is quite easy to see that the Hilton sells our attendees rooms at a massive discount. And Transformers conventions at the Hilton have usually shared the weekend with at least two other events, which also receive discounted rates. All of a sudden, those numbers become super important. To keep their business viable that weekend, the Hilton therefore has to maintain a percentage of rooms to sell at the public rates – effectively, to pay for the loss they make in catering for a hoard of happy robot fans. 

This is why, as much as we would love to, we can’t guarantee you all 790 rooms. Some go to a couple of other events; some go to special NEC affiliate events; and some go to the general public to help to pay for us lot. This is common practice at all hotel convention venues.

Some attendees may not be aware, but previous TF events at the Hilton (and the Holiday Inn, for you veterans) have sold out of their discounted rooms, with many attendees sourcing alternate accommodation. If you have not been in this position before, it is natural to be a little nervous. It is, however, important to remember that nothing has gone wrong - the truth is that a large amount of our TF community have booked straight away and taken up many of the options available. With the options listed above (and more to come) we hope we can make your convention booking process as easy as possible.

We hope this update has been helpful and we thank you for your understanding. We know booking hotel rooms can be a stressful time. Whether or not you get your first choice room, we hope as many of you as possible will join us at the convention.

Transformers Convention News

TFNation have kicked off the New Year by announcing their first Voice Actor / Actor guest as Venus Terzo! Venus is best known to Transformers fans for voicing Blackarachnia in Beast Wars and Beast Machines though she is also well known as the voice fo Rainbow Dash in My Little Pony, Girl-Type Ranma in Ramna 1/2, Jean Grey, the Sorceress, Jinx, Princess Lana and on-screen roles including Arrow, Minority Report, Supernatural, Stargate SG-1, Blackstone and the Da Vinici's Inquest.

Operation: Venus Terzo to attend TFNation 2017

Joining UK fans for the very first time, we are pleased to announce the incredibly talented Venus Terzo, Beast Wars Blackarachnia, will be attending TFNation 2017!
Blazing a trail for the multi-layered female characters who followed in her path, Blackarachnia’s long journey, from Beast Wars’ ruthless, self-serving, rebel Predacon to the Maximal-aligned Beast Machines force of nature, has seen the character achieve a special place in fan’s hearts. Her later dedication to Cybertron, and her relationship with Spark-mate Silverbolt, were elements decades ahead of MTMTE’s own examinations of loyalty and friendship, and are as relevant now as they have ever been.
Apart from her Transformers work, Venus’ acting versatility is reflected in the sheer quality and scale of her filmography. She is well-known for voicing My Little Pony’s Rainbow Dash across numerous features, the female version of Ranma ½, Jean Grey in X-Men: Evolution, the iconic Sorceress (and evil Critta) in The New Adventures of He-Man, and Gigagirl in Reboot. Then add in Biiko Daitokuji in Project A-Ko, G.I. Joe’s Jinx, Death Note’s Wedy, Princess Lana in Captain N: The Game Master and Talia Gladys in Mobile Suit Gundam Seed Destiny, and that’s just a selection of her animated work.
Venus’s on-screen appearances are even more numerous, including Arrow, Minority Report, Supernatural, Continuum, Sanctuary, Andromeda, and Stargate SG-1. Mainstream audiences will also know Venus from Blackstone, Badge of Honour, The Guard and her long-running role as Detective Angela Kosmo on Da Vinci’s Inquest , along with numerous other TV Movie and episodic work.
It’s worth noting, for fans of darker series, that Venus has also appeared in The Masters of Horror, The Dead Zone and The Twilight Zone and even appeared in the original TV series adaptation of Stephen King’s It.
Venus will be meeting fans, signing autographs and taking part in panels during our convention, which will run from Friday 11th and Sunday 13th August 2017.

Transformers Convention News

TFNation have announced their 13th guest as Ireland's own Nick Roche. You can read the full announcement below.  TFNation takes place in Birmingham, England from August 19th to August 21st with tickets on sale now at tfnation.com

Operation: Wreck and Roche (Warning, trousers may shatter)

While we have enjoyed the incredible responses to all our guest announcements to date, it’s fair to say that few will give both the TFNation team, and it’s attendees as much pleasure as announcing writer and artist Nick Roche’s attendance at this August’s event.

Known for his work with The Wreckers, Nick has been a TF fan since the days of the Marvel UK comics. Gaining exposure through the Transmasters community, Nick first worked on IDW’s Spotlight series, followed by Devastation, Maximum Dinobots and a notable issue of All Hail Megatron. All this, plus his numerous covers for other series, lead to the 2010 mini-series LAST STAND OF THE WRECKERS (for which he snuck in his Transmaster collaborator, some guy called James Roberts) which broke hearts, shattered trousers and whose influence has been felt in IDW Transformers, ever since.

Sins of the Wreckers, the highly anticipated sequel that Nick both wrote and drew, has just concluded, providing another dark chapter of the story of the Autobots most tragic/heroic team. We look forward to hearing the authors own feelings on the characters, story and those inevitable deaths, over the course of the convention weekend.

Away from Transformers, Nick has been involved in a wide range of work, from his Monster Motors collaboration with Brian Lynch, Dr Who covers for IDW and New Warriors for Marvel comics. He also hit Marvel UK fans right in the retros by providing the artwork for the Deaths Head section of Marvels Revolutionary war. Fitting, yes? On top of that, it still blows our minds that Nick also created all the artwork for an animated music video, as well as album cover art, for the last album from Brit rockers The Darkness.

We suggest you follow Nick on social media, for details of his plans for this year, as well as his recent blog for those following SINS OF THE WRECKERS.

Nick will be signing autographs and selling artwork at TFNation 2016 at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole Hotel - we look forward to seeing you there!

TFNation have made their thirty second transmission announcing that not one but two Third Party Transformers companies will be attending their show in person.  Fansproject, the team behind the amazing Masterpiece Dinobot inspired Dibot line and Maketoys, the company that created the huge Pandinus figure.

Operation: Third Party Appearance – Maketoys & Fans Project 
TFNation is extremely pleased to announce that, in partnership with Kapow Toys, TFNation 2016 will see the first in-person appearance by a Third Party toy company! Maketoys shall be making their European convention debut at TFNation 2016 to not only provide a product display of existing and up-coming releases, but to also give you an opportunity to purchase many of the figures and speak directly to the company.   
Founded in 2011, Maketoys are the Third Party company behind such incredible figures as Giant (Devastator), Hellfire (Inferno) and the more recent Citybots line. Maketoys have crossed into a variety of sublines which includes Microbots, Mobine Series, Manga Mech Series (based on the IDW comics) and the Battle Tanker Series – based on the Generation Two Laser Rod Optimus Prime. Within the world of combiners their MTCombiner series has produced Giant (Devastator in both green and yellow variants), Quantron (Computron) and Guardia (Defensor), while the RE:Master Series focuses on Masterpiece-style figures. Arguably their Citybots line has blown fans away with the impressive Utopia (Metroplex), Dystopia (Metrotitan) and Pandinus (Scorponok), making Maketoys the talk of the Third Party world.
As amazing as it is to announce the first ever European appearance of a Third Party company, TFNation isn’t stopping there. Joining Maketoys at TFNation 2016 will be FansProject, the company behind the fantastic Lost Exo Realm figures, based on the Japanese exclusive Pretender combiner Dinoforce figures - complete with limited edition shells! 
Originating in 2007 with the Cliffjumper add-on set, FansProject became best known for their stylised Warbot line. Then they then shook the Transformers community when they released the Retro-Future series featuring the might Glacialord. These figures were designed to look like a Generation One combiner with superb ‘80s aesthetics, complete with fake box damage, and is (to date) something that no other company has tried. From triple changers, through gestalt combiners, Headmasters and Pretenders, FansProject were one of the first companies to produce Third Party Transformers figures and they have continued to stay relevant and in demand. 
FansProject shall be offering product for sale along with showcasing existing and future products and we are extremely pleased to welcome them to TFNation 2016.
TFNation would like to thank the folk at Kapow Toys who have helped make this possible.

Transformers Convention News

TFNation have announced yet another guest in the form of legendary UK Transformers artist Geoff Senior!  Geoff worked on Marvel G1 and G2 series as well as Action Force, Dr Who as well as co-creating both Dragons Claws and Deaths Head with Simon Furman. Geoff's latest Transformers work was on Re-Generation One with some of his other credits including Zoids, Dark Angel, 2000ad and Judge Dredd: Lawman of the Future

TFNation takes place from August 19th until August 21st in Birmingham England.

Operation: The Man, the legend, the next guest
As TFN May-hem draws to a close it is only fitting that we end the month with the announcement of another guest.  That guest being the Man, the Legend, Geoff Senior. One of the most iconic artists to grace the Transformers comics.
Ever since his artwork first appeared in Transformers UK #42's 'Crisis Of Command' he became a beloved mainstay of the title until the book's conclusion, with his final story being the apocalyptic 'On The Edge Of Extinction', the majority of his body of work being made in collaboration with fellow TFN guest Simon Furman (with whom he co-created long-time fan favourite character Death's Head). With his deceptively simple linework and kinetic storytelling, Geoff has been cited as the inspiration for many artists working on the Transformers professionally today.
When Transformers returned to comics, Geoff found his way back to them as well, through the likes of Generation 2, Titan's Transformers live-action movie books, convention exclusive stories, and most recently IDW's Regeneration One. Outside of Transformers, Geoff has also worked on Action Force/GI Joe, Death's Head, Doctor Who, Dragon's Claws (also co-created with Furman), Zoids, Dark Angel, 2000ad and Judge Dredd: Lawman of the Future.
Don't miss this chance to meet a man who had a hand in many major parts of Transformers history and to get a sketch from the Kirby of Cybertron!
Geoff will be signing autographs and selling artwork from Friday 19th until Sunday 21st August 2016 at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole Hotel at TFNation 2016 - we look forward to seeing you there!
