2012 TFCon Charity Project

Hello everyone, its getting to be that time again when our esteemed group of customizers put their hard work to a good use and help a good cause.

Cliffjumper69 who has helped organized the last two years has stepped down due to a busy life and I have elected to step up to manage things this year.

The charity for this years project is SABIS, an organization here in Alberta that helps individuals with Brain Damage.
http://www.sabis.ab.ca/html/sabis.htm

The reason I picked this organization is because they're very small, and receive very little funding from anywhere. I've met some of the people who have benefited from this services and really believe in the work they do to help these people live better lives.

---------------------------------------------------

However, on to the part many people are looking forward to - the theme for this years project:

A small group of Heroes chase a renegade group of evil Transformers through a transwarp portal to the distant past.
Battling in orbit of the planet the two ships fall to Earth - however an abundance of energy on the planet cause both groups to enter stasis lock where they lay dormant for hundreds of thousands of year.

Now in the present day, current activity has caused both groups to reactivate. Taking on the forms of local machines and vehicles, Optimus Primal leads his group of Maximals against Megatron's Predacons.

---------------------------------------------------

While I know Botcon did Cybertron modes for the Beast Wars characters years ago, this set will have them in modern vehicle modes as opposed to the cybertron modes of that set.

The set will be the basic crews from season 1:
Optimus Primal, Rhinox, Rattrap, Cheetor and Dinobot (and Tigatron and Airrazor)
vs
Megatron, Terrorsaur, Waspinator, Scorponok and Tarantulas (with BlackArachnia and Inferno)


There may also be a secret addition to be revealed at TFCon (or shortly beforehand).

Other rules for the set is that the figures will be scout and deluxe sized.
*Edit* The aesthetic we're going for is generations/classics-verse

---------------------------------------------------

The following people so far are signed up and as always we are always looking for more:
Cybermnky - Primal
Cliffjumper69 - Rhinox
Mumps - waspinator
Purple-Bot - dinobot, Airrazor
Primebein - Terrorsaur
Stapler - rattrap
Malwave - Megatron
obakemono - Tarantulas
General Tekno - Scorponok
Racerguy - Cheetor (by default)
Strag - Inferno
Darth Grimlock - Tigatron
CheersIan - Black Arachnia


We'll take anyone of any talent or skill level that interested. If you're interested feel free to PM me.

*Edit* Also, I would love to do a couple page long comic to go with the set. So any artists that are interested let me know.

Optimus Primal

Here is a digibash for Optimus Primal and the concept I'm going for:

Click image for larger version

Name:	primal.jpg

ID:	12747

Base mold is the TFTM Stockade figure, with the head and chest piece from the Cybertron Beast Prime figure. Putty will be used to cover some of the more techy details to bring the figure more in line with the classics aesthetic the project is going for. and some customs swords will be built.

Re: 2012 TFCon Charity Project

Me and Mal were talking about what a set like this would be like for a few days now. We were talking about the Japanese Beast Wars II and Beast Wars Neo, though.

Count me in, CyberMnky! I'm all over this. I've been waiting for the next charity project to pop up since I've had a blast with being a part of the last two.
