It's continued success has brought high praise from Hasbro and Rovio and the Exient team justifiably proud of their creation.

Ryan and the team will be displaying concept and designs from the series, discussing the development of the game, its ever-growing cast of characters and seeking feedback from both current and future gamers on the mobile app. In return, attendees can expect some exclusive goodies, including character unlocks for the game!

Transformers Convention News

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 posted their latest anouncement which states that TFC Toys will be showcasing new and existing product at the 2016 show which takes place in Birmingham, England.  TFC Toys are behind the incredible Hades combiner, based on the Transformers Victory Leo Kaiser / Brestforce figures.  We own all four which have been released so far, and they are in must have.  Their latest figure, Poseidon, also looks spot on as a giant Seacon combiner.

Operation: Third Party Appearance – TFC Toys

‪#‎TFNation‬ is proud to announce that TFC TOYS will be providing their first UK product display at TFNation 2016.

Founded in 2008, many feel that TFC Toys started the Combiner Wars with their immensely popular Hercules figure, a giant six robot/construction vehicle gestalt combiner based on Devastator. The release of Hercules would shape the world of Third Party ‪#‎Transformers‬ for years to come, seeing TFC Toys and various other companies produce a multitude of combining robots. Many have speculated that it was the popularity of these Third Party figures which inspired Hasbro into creating the Combiner Wars line. TFC Toys followed up Hercules with Ares (Predacons), Uranos (Aerialbots) and Prometheus (Protectobots).

Their current combiner, Hades (Breastforce), has been touted as the best Third Party combiner figure made so far. If you haven’t made up your mind on Hades TFC Toys will be providing a finished sample as part of their display. Following Hades their latest announced figures, Poseidon, are based on the Seacons: a six robot combiner-Targetmaster group which not only features "Scramble City limbs" (interchangeable) but also each figure has their original triple-changing gimmick. TFC Toys will be displaying currently available figures, future releases in the form of prototypes and hard-copies, and also their latest designs and concepts for future figures.

TFNation is extremely excited to welcome TFC Toys to TFNation 2016 and are humbled that they have chosen to showcase their incredible line up to European fans at our show.

Remember to stay tuned to all our social media channels for more exiting announcements for TFNation 2016.

Transformers Convention News

TFNation have issued the following press release regarding the state of the hotel rooms:

TransmissionID: 000017
Operation: Hotel Update

Since our new website went live, it has become apparent that the TFNation crew is blessed with a lot of support. We cannot thank you enough for this, as we continue to build on what will be a fantastic event.

One of the results of this strong support has been an unprecedented demand for convention-rate rooms at the Hiton Metropole. The reservations have been fast and unrelenting as people have booked early to secure their spot. Due to this demand, the remaining allocation has become limited in a very short period of time.

Naturally, we have received a lot of questions regarding the remaining rooms, so we wanted to take this opportunity to answer some of these points, provide some information and keep everyone upto date.

No. Although some room types have sold out on the core convention nights (twins and doubles being the very first room types that everyone booked) there are still other options available. The Sunday night allocation saw the most demand and so the remaining options for that night are the most limited.

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. With this in mind, we encourage you to make alternate plans now.

We still have a healthy allocation of Friday and Saturday single rooms at the discounted price, but they won’t last forever, so we encourage you to book quickly.

We also have some executive upgrade rooms remaining, both twin and doubles. Remember, whilst executive rooms are more expensive, they give you access to the executive bar, with its selection of complimentary alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks. Plus, sharing a room (and therefore, the nightly rate) will help to bring your costs down, somewhat.


Some attendees may not be aware, but many previous events at the Hilton have sold out of their discounted rooms, with lots of attendees sourcing alternate accommodation without too much bother. If you have not been in this position before, then it is natural to become a little stressed by the situation. 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.

Sadly, we have received reports that 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, infact, impact future years'
allocations. We strongly urge our attendees not to do this - reception staff do not have the authority to give you additional rooms, or change booked rates, and do not deserve to be treated badly during their day job.

Thanks for your understanding.


Stay calm. We are seven months away from the event - you have lots of time to plan. There are multiple ways you can book alternative accomodation, with the minimum of fuss. 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 and your friends who you will no doubt meet, that weekend.

Below, we will list the options you can take now, while we work on alternative avenues. We advise you to take prompt action as holding out for your prefered room to become available again will only reduce your options.

If you are looking for a single room for the three nights then we suggest you book the Friday and Saturday at the Hilton, and then you just need to find an option for the Sunday. Even if the last night costs more, you have at least saved on the other two nights and that will lessen the impact of a Sunday booking.


We have opened
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.

Although the convention rate rooms are selling quickly, the Hilton – like most hotels – reserves some rooms for public sale.

Presently the Hilton is holding a WINTER SALE event on its website

These rooms represent a good saving over standard hotel prices, though you may have to pay upfront. Unlike convention rooms, breakfast is typically not included.

If you already have a discounted room booked for certain convention nights then you can ask the Hilton to keep you in that room for your public booking, if it is the same room type. To do this, you can contact them shortly before the event, or ask reception when you check in. The Hilton is not able to change the cost of publicly booked rooms to the convention rate, after ordering.

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

This week we will update our website to provide you with a list of alternative accommodation in the area – there are lots of options within walking distance or a short commute. As we are seven months away from the convention, browsers will have numerous options.

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.
