My first TFCon: Awesome!

First TFCon this year! So many thoughts about Saturday.

Everybody was super friendly! I had never gone to place where I could just talk Transformers to somebody and have them understand what I'm saying. I want more of that! I'm usually pretty much alone in my fandom. And seeing all kinds of people of all ages was amazing.

The dealer room was overwhelming. I've been to toy-related dealer rooms before but my brain couldn't handle the size of it. When I first walked in I had a moment of true awe.

I must've made a half dozen laps and I still must've missed tons of stuff. For example, had I known Nonnef had PotP Dinobot upgrades, I would've picked it up for sure. One dealer selling three (four?) tables of just parts!? Crazy! Was anybody selling more modern parts? Maybe there was but I couldn't concentrate.

Brought one of my best friends to act as my conscience so that I won't bust my shopping budget. Then I completely ignored him! Man, as soon as I found out certain dealers took credit cards it was all over.

Hunting for after-hours deals in the hotel rooms was fun! It was a great way to meet fellow fans. Everybody was so proud of their hauls.

I wish I had done more, but it was a great weekend. I'll definitely never forget it.

Re: My first TFCon: Awesome!

Awesome! I'm SO happy you had so much fun!



I've been to TFCON several times too. It's always a blast. I remember my first was was... THE FIRST TFCON! It was so tiny then! Just a small conference room. Lol.



The last one I went to was HUGE! They had thousands of people there. It was insane. I'd love to go back to a TFCON again someday. (Had no toy money this month! Lol)



I'm so happy you had a good time!

I am glad you like it! I have been going as just a participant and as a dealer for a number of years. It is a blast every times! And don't worry if you thought you haven't done more: there is another one next year

My wife and daughter appreciated that some of the tables sold dolls, plushes and figures. They understood that the show was Transformers focused but they liked finding a few things for themselves.

There needs to be a fan edit of TFTM where all the animation errors get cleaned up

It was real nice of TFCon paying for the hotel parking! It was really appreciated.
