The meaning of «tfcon»

TFcon is a Transformers fan convention held annually since 2002 in the Greater Toronto Area. The convention was created to give Canadians the opportunity to celebrate their love for the Transformers franchise. Now the largest fan-run Transformers convention in the world, TFcon will be held for the 19th consecutive year in 2020 with events occurring in Toronto, Ontario, Canada in July and Chicago, Illinois in October to celebrate the 36th Anniversary of the Transformers.

TFcon is the world's largest fan-run Transformers collectors convention. The event features the world's largest dealer room for specifically Transformers merchandise, guest question and answer panels and autograph sessions, a 3rd party product presentation, Transformers trivia, and a costume contest.

The first TFcon was held in Hamilton, Ontario in 2002. Organized by Aaron Black and Colin Douglas in less than a month, the convention had a modest 190 attendees. In 2003, TFcon got its first special guests in the form of Joe Ng and Dreamwave Productions team. In 2004, it got its first convention exclusive in the form of a variant convention exclusive cover of Transformers #1 Vol. 3 published by Dreamwave Productions. In 2006, the first 3D merchandise exclusive was released, a "stealth" recolor of the Cyclonus Hard Hero Bust. In 2007, TransformersCon finally got its first transforming toy exclusive, an unlicensed and downsized version of the Dinobot Slag in his green Generation 2 colors dubbed "Flamethrower". In its first 2 years the convention was moved around Ontario, but now finds a regular home in Toronto, Ontario. As of 2008, this convention formerly named TransformersCon is now officially called TFcon at the request of Hasbro. In 2009 TFcon expanded to a 2-day convention. Starting in 2012 TFcon has been hosting a charity auction for the Make-A-Wish Foundation each summer raising over $50,000 for the charity.[1] In 2014 TFcon expanded to two shows a year, with one in Canada and one in the United States. In 2019 TFcon expanded to running 2 shows in the USA so more fans could be included in the experience. Spring of 2019 TFcon hosted the first-ever Transformers Generation 1 cast reunion in Los Angeles featuring the largest reunion of talent from the original cartoon series ever assembled and featuring 50 guests from various Transformers media.

TransformersCon 2004 documentary appears on Metrodome's 2004 release of Transformers season one DVD set, as well interviews with voice actors David Kaye & Garry Chalk from TransformersCon appear on the Madman Beast Wars 2006 Season 2 DVD sets. TFcon was featured in the Shout Factory Season 3&4 DVD in the Special Features Featurette "The Autobots, The Decepticons & The Fans", including mention in the "Special Thanks" section of the special feature credits.
