It may have started out as a hum­ble toy fran­chise, but th­ese days Trans­form­ers is a much-loved cult phe­nom­e­non, de­spite Michael Bay’s best ef­forts to sour us on Op­ti­mus and co. This con­ven­tion ded­i­cated to ro­bots in dis­guise takes place in Birm­ing­ham’s Hil­ton Metropole ho­tel.

Comics writer Si­mon Fur­man has a long his­tory with Trans­form­ers and he’s head­ing up a guest list that also in­cludes artist Guido Guidi, con­cept artist Emil­iano San­talu­cia, who has worked on the film fran­chise, and voice artist Paul Eid­ing. Ex­pect to see lots of im­pres­sive ro­bots at the cos­play con­test while The Forge is TFNa­tion’s fan cre­ativ­ity area, where artists can dis­play their hard work.

Week­end tick­ets for TFNa­tion cost £55 for adults, £35 for 13-17 year olds, £20 for se­niors and free for chil­dren. In­di­vid­ual passes for Sun­day only are also avail­able. Whether you’re a fan of the car­toon, the comics, the toys or even the movies (why?), it’s sure to be a fun event.
