Transformers Tour 2015

Hasbro may not be participating for next year’s UK Toy Fair but they’ve made a promise that they will continue to cater the market. Part of that is the annual Transformers UK Roadshow.

To promote its new range of Transformers toys and digital app, Hasbro kick-started its UK-wide experiential roadshow last weekend at Sunderland International Air Show. Since it was a movie year, last year’s theme was Transformers: Age Of Extinction. This year’s theme is Transformers: Robots In Disguise.

Accessaa UK has this to say:

The pop-up trailer, which is branded in line with the new Transformers: Robots in Disguise animation airing on Cartoon Network, also invites people inside to scan an exclusive app code and earn points to play on the new Robots in Disguise digital game.

Delivered in partnership with experiential agency i2i Marketing, the roadshow will head to Carfest North (31 July –2 August), Bristol International Balloon Fiesta (6-9 August), Birmingham Rotunda Square (14-16 August) and Carfest South (28-30 August).

We have some great news to report this morning from TFcon. We just received an update for the final donation numbers raised for Make-A-Wish Canada. Here are the details from TFcon:

TFcon is very proud to announce that our 2015 charity auction was able to raise $10417.40 for Make-A-Wish® Canada. We are very proud of everyone in our community that contributed to make this amazing feat happen.

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.

Because the entire family experiences the diagnoses, treatment and day-to-day challenges of caring for a child with an illness, the entire family is included in the wish experience. Make-A-Wish® likes to make sure their families do not have to lift a finger or spend a dime. So if you think of the cost of sending a family of 4 to Disney for a week from the car that picks them up to park activities, souvenirs as well as food and medical insurance the average cost of a wish is $10,000. So that means, because of the TFcon Toronto 2015 charity auction a child will have their wish come true!

To all those that contributed to the charity auction this year, thank you!
