Whether you’re an Autobot or Decepticon, TF Nation is the con for you
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.
