is pleased to announce that they will once again be hosting a charity auction for Make-A-Wish Canada
on Saturday, July 27th, 2013. Last year TFcon raised $2705 in their first ever charity auction.
The charity auction will feature many great unique donations and we hope our community will help us raise as much as possible for the Make-A-Wish foundation. If you wish to donate an item for the auction please email the convention.
Make-A-Wish® Canada creates magical moments for children between the ages of 3 and 17, living with life threatening medical conditions, through granting a child’s one true wish. Make-A-Wish® strives to create hope, strength and joy by giving a child a much needed respite from being sick, allowing them to experience the wholesome enjoyment of just being a “kid” again.
Make-A-Wish impacts the lives of families when they need to know that their community cares about what they are going through, as their child battles for his or her life.
Make-A-Wish exists for one reason only – to grant wishes to children living with life-threatening medical conditions. Thanks for helping to share the power of a wish®!TFcon – The world's largest fan-run Transformers convention

It's time for the next gallery in our Transformers United toys galleries section - it's time for Artfire! Transformers United Artfire
is a Million Publishing exclusive available only through a mail-in offer in the Transformers Generations 2012 book. He's a homage to the rare Japan-only character from Headmasters, Artfire, who was a white-cab version of Inferno with Targetmaster Scourge's partner Targetmaster figure. In that vein Transformers United Artfire is a redeco of Transformers Universe Inferno, but like the original Inferno, he has been remolded to incorporate the Targermasters - in this one's case, it is the inclusion of Solar Storm Grappel's crane in place of Inferno's water cannon, which allows Artfire to mount both his Targetmasters on the crane hook as a water cannon. That's right, Artfire is not just a homage to the original Artfire, he is also a homage to the second run "double Targetmasters" who could peg their weapons into one another.
As far as decos go, Artfire is fantastic. He's got a very sharp deco that flows nicely in both his modes, with lots of detailed paint applications making the finished article look just that little bit more awesome. The two Targetmasters included are Nightstick, a redeco of Universe Cyclonus' partner in a predominantly silver deco, and Sparks, a redeco of Power Core Combiners Pinpoint, the Mini-con who came with Leadfoot and had been previously been drawn as Artfire's partner Targetmaster by Guido Guidi in the Generations 2011 comic strip. Artfire makes an excellent companion piece to the Million Publishing 2011 mail in exclusive Stepper, and what is really great about this duo is not only that they are great toys in excellent decos, but in many ways they are the only ways some of us will get to own versions of the characters, particularly because in Artfire's case he has never seen a reissue.

Fellow TFW contributor Protoman has tweeted
some new photos of the BTS Nova Lord prototype. Interestingly enough, parts of the jet mode are based on the Rise Of Cobra Night Raven
from GI Joe
. Modes are the following:
This triple changer is quite big, with Protoman chiming in the following:Just to let you know.......
The robot mode is 18 inches tall. To give you an idea. Fortress Maximus is 23 inches tall.........
This is a big move on BTS' part, moving from trailers for Classics Prime to their 1st fully fledged figure, and a big triple changer at that!Read Replies (0)
