Time for RetCon 2018!On Saturday 2 June 2018 we open the doors to our second Transformers convention, at hotel Good Morning+ Helsingborg in Helsingborg, Sweden.
Our programme isn't finalized yet, but we are working hard to bring you the best possible programme, with something for just about everyone.
There will be a celebrity guest, toy vendors, quizzes, competitions, activities, an exclusive comic, panels, a hang-out, and a lot more!
We have three guests of honour this time: the writers James Roberts and Eric Holmes, plus the writer/artist Nick Roche, who will be on site for RetCon all of the main convention day, and will tell us about their work.
We have also produced a set of exclusive figures: two bears and two mantas which can combine to form a scorpion or a robot. Read about them here.
The convention is held at hotel Good Morning+ Helsingborg, and we have arranged with discounted hotel room prices
for the convention weekend. When you register for the convention you will receive a discount code which you need to supply when you book your hotel room (by phone or e-mail) to get the discounted room prices.
Some important details:
The primary language of the convention is English. Depending on the number of attending children we might do some events (competitions in particular) in Swedish as well, but at the moment we can't make any promises.
Children under 12 years of age come in for free (one child for every adult in the group).
The currency used at the convention is Swedish kronor, SEK. We advise attendees to get their money exchanged before the convention, and dealers to convert their prices to SEK. There are a number of currency exchange stores in Helsingborg, some of which are open at least part of Saturday, but it's still a wise idea to get the money exchanged in advance.
We do not have the capacity to handle card payments at the convention; only cash is accepted.
