OTFCC 2004 was the Official Transformers Collectors Club Convention in 2004, run by 3H Enterprises. It was held in the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, Illinois, from July 31 to August 1.


Exclusive merchandise included Dreamwave Productions "20th Anniversary Mega-Litho" poster, Palisade Toys 6" Ultra Magnus statue and Devil's Due Press G.I. Joe vs. the Transformers Volume II Preview Edition.

Convention-exclusive toys

  • Universe Megazarak - A purple, light blue, red and black repaint of Armada Megatron with no electronics and one of the pins in the hinge of the capture-minicons-thing on his leg missing. Surprisingly, nobody seemed to complain too much about the lack of electronics, which was odd.
  • Universe Sentinel Maximus - A blue and red repaint of Armada Overload. This toy was never made in time for the show, only to arrive through the mail to pre-registrants months later. Some who pre-ordered it ended up never receiving this toy at all.


The Convention Guide had a five-page teaser story, "Shell Game", featuring the exclusive toy character Megazarak and Ultra Trion. Written by Simon Furman, with art by Andrew Froedge, colors by Joe Givens, and letters by Simon Bowland.
