It's TFNation O' Clock, chum. 12th to 14th August at the Ol' Hilton Metropole in that Birmingham. And there ain't NOTHIN' you can do about it.

Can't wait to see you again after three long years, where we both do the the thing where we don't mention how old and wrecked we've both gotten.

To paper over the cracks of our awkward relationship, for GOD sake, buy some artwork, WON'T YOU?

 Pre-Order Price for an A4 Black & White HEADSHOT ONLY shot is £50

Live-Action Movie Designs £70 :)

To be eligible for these, all you need to do is:

* Reply in the comments section below
* State YOUR name, the name of the CHARACTER you want, the VERSION (G1, Beast Wars, IDW, etc) of the character you want, and an idea of the day you'll be available to collect the piece. (Saturday or Sunday)
* Sorry, no fan/original characters, but feel free to request non-TF characters! 
* I will only be able to accept CASH at TFNation, no cards. 
* You can Paypal me AT the show if you can show me your digital receipt for the transaction.
**No over-the-top amounts of props or quirky accessories! (eg: Optimus Prime pushing a shopping trolley full of discounted porcelain.) They take additional time to research and/or design. But all reasonable requests considered! :)
* PLEASE only order a sketch if you will be able to attend to pick it up, and, you know, pay for it.

Hi Nick.
Could I request a headset of Knockout from Transformers Prime.
If you could make him looking smug, that would be great!
I'm at TFNation all weekend.
My name is Chris Ford, and if needed my email address is fordchris3@sky.com.
Cheers, Chris.

Hi Nick, could I get a sketch of Beast Wars Inferno please? I'll be at TFNation on Saturday - first year there so very excited :) Thanks in advance, Pete

Maz said...

Nick, you gorgeous bastard! Could I please predictably request a headshot of the TakaraTomy Diaclone DA-65 Battle Convoy VMax to go with the other 3 stunners you did for me at previous TFNs?

I will be at the show all weekend.

All the best

Hi Nick,
Could I please get a headset of my boy Rubble from IDW 2019? I don't mind what he's doing, just make him adorable (and not in any danger as I know you love killing off my faves)

Pemma said...

*headshot. I don't think it would be fair of me to force you to show up with some custom gaming gear, even if it would be funny to watch me die in videogames while dressed like a character known for dying. Anyway I can pick it up either day but I'll say Saturday (if Sunday more convenient just let me know).
Thanks again,

IDW 2019 Slipstream, with a look of disapproval on her face. I am there all weekend so probably Sunday. Thanks.

It's Ray btw. I didn't reaD all the instructions before the original post. research should be a bit easier with the youtube video I put on your comments on twitter

Kira said...

Hi Nick, would it be possible to get a double headshot of Fastlane and Cloudraker? I would assume this would put the price up to 100 which is fine. If not, I will just take either one. Thanks. Laura.

Hi Nick!
Would love to get a Super Megatron headshot from you (based on the Generations Selects toy) looking mean and intimidating! The toy has a lot of customisation options to how it looks so I would like the following:

- Head with the red forehead thingy
- The asymmetrical torso (for as much as can be seen in the headshot) with the small red marking on the right breast
- the triple barrel cannon mounted on his back pointing up behind his head

(basically this but with the tri-barrel gun on his back) https://www.kapowtoys.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2020/04/takara-tomy-mall-super-megatron-ultra-megatron-mode-01.jpg

If you need any further image ref then DM me @Powellpatine on Twitter and I'd be more than happy to provide! I'm at TFNation all weekend but I'll probably collect Saturday.

Thank you so much!

Hi Nick! Could I get a headshot of IDW brainstorm with his faceplate on please? I leave anything else about him up to your imagination! My parents will be at the con on Sunday so they'll be able to grab it from you then!

Thank you,

Kyle Nisbet

Hi Nick! Could I please have a headshot of Old Man Rodimus from Last Bot Standing? Thanks! - David Heslop

Ben said...

Hey man, If you've still got time and space I'd like to ask for a Marvel Backstreet. I'll be around the whole weekend so I don't mind waiting 'til Sunday.

Cheers dude!

Jo said...

Hi Nick - can I get one of Nautica? (Drawn in that wonderfully chunky way you've drawn her in the past. Will be around for the full weekend.

Hello Nick

I would love to have a Headshot of Impactor (IDW Wreckers Saga aka your design of him) holding up his harpoon hand with both the Decepticon insignia and Autobot insignia skewered/Shish Kabobed through it, Please and thank you. I’ll be around all weekend during the con so I can pick it up either day. I’m really looking forward to seeing everyone in person again, can’t wait!

Something a bit different for you:-

Head shot of Miria Jenius from Macross (a.k.a Miria Sterling in Robotech), giving that "I am better than you and I know it" smile of hers.

I'll be around on the Saturday or the Sunday so I can give you the folding pounds and pick it up whichever day suits you better.

Guys, thanks so much for the requests, you've given me LOTS to work with!

No more requests after this message will be taken - no exceptions, sorry!

See you all at TFNation!
