Dairycon 2012 Dates Unchanged: Friday & Saturday, April 27-28th
Posted by News Fetcher on December 09 '11 at 07:45 PM
By NIBMRatchet from TFW2005:
Despite BotCon falling on the same weekend, the organizers of the Dairycon says the dates for the 2012 convention won’t change.

TFW2005 Boards Member cbff received the following message from the organizers of Dairycon…

"Hello all,

Just a quick update to let you all know that we are standing by our plans for April 27th & 28th! While I know that we may lose some of you to that convention down in Texas (believe us, *every* loss is sad), we are moving on with our plans for this year's Dairycon.

As many of you know, Dairycon has been an event for those who can't afford to make the trip out to the big show, who can't afford their exclusives, to get together with friends who you may not have seen in a year, and to have some Dairy cow-themed fun...

We hope to see you there, but if not; it's all a celebration of the same fandom!"


Dairycon 2012 will stay on Friday (April 27) & Saturday (April 28) as originally planned.

Transformers Dark of the Moon 3D Blu Ray 01/31/12

By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Blu-Ray.com is reporting that the full 3D Blu-Ray release of Transformers Dark of the Moon is out next month on 31 January 2012. It's coming as a Blu-ray 3D / Blu-ray / DVD / Digital Copy combo pack, and it will present the film in its original aspect ratio of 2.39:1. No word on special features for this release yet, so it's not clear if this will be the full deluxe set, or just the bare-bones edition like the previous Blu-Ray, with the 3D copy added.

This time, we have for you the first look at this monster of a third party product in vehicle mode. In robot mode he is as tall as a Masterpiece Transformer, and now in vehicle mode we can confirm he is equally huge! He's the biggest third party product to date.

But wait, there's more! The Knight Morpher Cyclops is going on tour and the first stop is Comic Ink in Dublin, CA on 17-18 December. If you're in the area and this guy interests you, be sure to swing by and check it out, and meet some fellow fans at the same time!

Read on to check out more images of the Cyclops, as well as some excellent black and white art of the robot mode.

Igear has updated their Facebook page with an image of their next Mini-Warrior 3rd Party Figure. MW-04 UFO is his name and he will be based on Generation 1 Cosmos. Something very cool to note is that UFO has a space helmet. That is how Transformers artist Guido Guidi depicted him in the recent Transformers Ongoing comic book in issue #12. This might be a great alternative to anyone still trying to track down the limited Hasbro release of Universe Cosmos.

Take a look at the image and sound off on the 2005 Boards!
