This reporter was lucky enough to attend TFNation 2016, and had an excellent time! From interesting panels, to fun activities, to the brilliant company of friendly Transformers fans, it was a great success. We’ll be reporting live from the convention once again, but we can’t recommend making it there in person enough! If you’re in the UK/Europe, or even just fancy making a trip from further afield for a warm, friendly Transformers convention, you can’t go far wrong!
