Here is a late, but no less exciting, announcement for CybFest NW 2016:

We are excited to announce that we have once again partnered with Azim Venksta to offer an exclusive weapon accessory set at CybFest NW 2016. The Overcast Grey Weapon Set includes an exclusive recolor of his four Combaticon guns.

We want to send a big thank you to our advertising partners for CybFest NW 2016:

These local comic shops are helping to spread the word about the show, and we want to return the favor. If you live near one or ever happen to be passing through, be sure to drop in and support your local comic shops.

We also have a small registration update. All of our normal dealer tables are now SOLD OUT! We only have a few Artist tables left. This is going to be our biggest CybFest yet, and we can't wait until next weekend.

See everyone in a little over a week!

We have just posted contest details for CybFest NW 2016. They can be viewed here. Final scheduling details are in-work and will be posted soon.

Contests have always been a big part of CybFest NW, going back to its sister convention, CybCon. As usual, we have our Transforming and Trivia Contests from CybCon, but this year we will also be bringing back the Video Game Contest. In addition to that, we will also be adding two new contests: an Art Contest and an Action Pose contest. These contests are always a great way to interact with fellow Transformers fans, and there should be a little something for everyone this year, so we hope you will plan to participate.

We also want to give everyone a registration update. Due to the lateness of some our our announcements, we felt it was only fair to extend our pre-registration deadline. We will be formally extending the deadline for attendees and dealers to August 14, 2016, the Sunday before the show. This will be your final chance to purchase early admission to the show or a dealer table.
