Transformers Convention News

Jagex To Support Auto Assembly 2012

Online MMO games developer Jagex are busy working frantically on their upcoming Transformers Universe MMO. Back in 2011, Jagex supported Auto Assembly by providing us with a great selection of freebies to give away to our attendees, some fantastic t-shirts which we gave away as competition prizes, and donated what is still our highest fundraising auction items ever.

We're proud to announce that Jagex will be supporting Auto Assembly again this year and, they’ll be bringing boxes of stuff exclusive to attendees of Auto Assembly 2012. They will be given away as prizes in various competitions during the convention and we will also be giving away some in a pre-registrant prize draw. To enter this, all you need to do is book your tickets for the convention IN ADVANCE and you'll be entered (as long as you don't have a Partner or Under 6 pass!).

Then just check your welcome pack on the day and if you have a lucky ticket in there, you've won!

Secondly Jagex will be donating something rather special for our charity auction... They will be providing us with a very special print of artwork from the Transformers Universe game signed by the development team! At Auto Assembly 2011, a similar print that was signed by SIXTY members of the team raised an astonishing £350 and we hope that this one will do the same and we want to thank Paul Mayer and Eddy Dew from Jagex for arranging this.

Finally, we will be giving away Transformers Universe art cards to our attendees as part of the goodie bags this year. Featuring one of two different designs, these have great CGI landscapes on them and are great collectibles from the game.

You can find out more about the game at http://www.transformersuniverse.com and about Jagex's other online MMOs including the highly-acclaimed RuneScape at their website at http://www.runescape.com

Auto Assembly 2012 is Europe's largest Transformers convention and is taking place over the weekend of 3rd - 5th August 2012 at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole Hotel.

Transformers Convention News

Auto Assembly 2012 Sets New European Attendance Record!

With over four weeks to go Auto Assembly 2012 is set to be a huge success once again. Since 2005 we have proudly held the attendance record for a European Transformers convention and today we have broken our previous record that we set in 2010! This sets a new landmark for us at the convention as we have only previously set new records or attendance figure milestones at the convention itself.

Bookings are still coming in at a fantastic rate as we are now in our traditional rush period and we have still yet to announce some of the late surprises that we have in store for you. We have some great competitions lined up, another guest to announce, some great announcements for those of you who have been with us for several years, an update on this year's convention exclusive litho and our other exclusives, more artwork from our comic, and much more besides!

Auto Assembly 2012 IS Europe's largest EVER Transformers convention and is taking place over the weekend of 3rd - 5th August 2012 at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole Hotel. To book your tickets or find out information about booking dealers tables, to sponsor the event or to enquire about advertising with us, visit the website at http://www.autoassembly.org.uk

For most of you attending Auto Assembly 2012 this August - or if you have ordered our Non-Attendee Package - you know that we are giving away a selection of gifts as part of our traditional goodie bag. As well as our regular exclusive postcards, convention magazine, and our comic we are producing an A2 lithograph this year and we are now proud to unveil the artwork for the first time...

The litho is limited to a print run of just 1,000 copies and is ONLY going to be made available at Auto Assembly 2012 so unless you attend the convention or order a Non-Attendee Pack, you won't be able to get this fantastic piece of artwork.
 
We were so impressed with this art that it is also featuring as the cover image for this year's convention exclusive comic, Iacon Independent, and we are also producing a postcard based on the original lineart from the card so we think that it's adding up to a fantastic package of gifts.
 
For all you dealers and businesses out there reading this, we want to give YOU the chance to be a part of this as we have the opportunity for one lucky company to be associated with this lithograph and to sponsor it! You'll get the chance to not only have your company's logo and details featured on the litho, but on the associated postcard as well!

This is a one-off opportunity to get your company onto a product that will be on display on the walls of fans all over the world! Email us for more details!

Transformers Convention News

 

We want to remind all of you that there are now only five weeks to go until Auto Assembly 2012! If you haven’t already booked your tickets for this year’s event then we’d recommend that you book your tickets as soon as possible. Please don’t leave it until the last minute folks – not only does it leave us with more work processing bookings and producing passes, often doing it at the hotel itself, but last year we had a staggering 40% of our total ticket sales in the last 5 weeks and almost a third of those were in the final week!

Ticket wise, we are way ahead of where were were last year and right now we are at the point now where we were when pre-registrations had CLOSED last year so hurry and get your tickets so you’re not disappointed! We are now very close to beating the attendance figure we reached in 2010 so in the next few days we are also likely to set a new European attendance record for a Transformers convention so if you want to be a part of this, you know what to do!

Auto Assembly 2012 Convention Comic Preview - Day 4

With Auto Assembly 2012 just over five weeks away, we thought we'd turn our series of previews over to our convention magazine The Cybertronian Times. The magazine has been running since 1998 and this year we're doing something rather special...

This year the magazine is being printed in A4 format as we have done for the last few years but for the first time ever the magazine is being printed in full colour and is being GIVEN AWAY to all our attendees who will be receiving one of the conventions goodie bags. In previous years the magazine has been sold as an optional add-on to the ticket price with 2011's magazine selling with a cover price of £7 so this is a fantastic bonus gift.

The magazine features a selection of articles, features, profiles on all of this years guests, fiction plus two brand new comic strips and it is these that we want to unveil today. The first story, "The Hunter" is set during IDW's series Robots In Disguise and focuses on Sideswipe where he goes it alone in tracking down a rogue Decepticon, but will his reckless nature cause him even more trouble? Written and illustrated by Ed and Ben Pirrie with a supporting team for colours and the strip's cover page.

The magazine is only available at Auto Assembly 2012 so to get your hands on a copy you're going to have to book at ticket for the event or order one of our Non-Attendee Packs. Don't forget, you'll also be able to get hold of our other convention exclusive, the Marlboor Kitbash Upgrade Kit for Generations Wheeljack by attending the convention or ordering a Non-Attendee Pack so there's a double incentive to book if the guests and the convention itself weren't reason enough!

We have very limited advertising space available in the magazine for any interested companies and several pages have already been sold. It will have a print run of 1,000 copies and will be distributed to fans attending the convention from all over the world. If you are interested in promoting your business, website, event or anything else, please get in touch!

Auto Assembly 2012 is Europe's largest Transformers convention and is taking place over the weekend of 3rd - 5th August 2012 at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole Hotel. To book your tickets or find out information about booking dealers tables, to sponsor the event or to enquire about advertising with us, visit the website at http://www.autoassembly.org.uk

Transformers Convention News


As you know, we are producing a convention exclusive comic for Auto Assembly 2012 that will be included in all of the goodie bags that we will be giving away at the event. These bags will be packed with free gifts to make sure that no-one leaves the convention empty-handed, whether you come along with much spending money or not.

The comic, Iacon Independent, will feature work from a range of talented writers and artists and will feature 22 pages of short stories and single page strips spanning G1, Beast Wars, Beast Machines and Transformers: Animated and will have something for everyone and will feature a stunning cover illustrated by Marvel G1 artist Jeff Anderson.

We can now reveal the first teaser image from the comic taken from the story “Youth of Experience”. Set during "The War Within", it sees Hot Rod and Kup team up for the first time. It is written by Peter Williams featuring art by Rui Onishi, colours by Kal Kyle and letters by Andy Turnbull.

More preview art to follow tomorrow...

We have very limited advertising space available in the comic for any interested companies. The comic will have a print run of 1,000 copies and will be distributed to fans attending the convention from all over the world. If you are interested in promoting your business, website, event or anything else, please get in touch!

Transformers Convention News

Below you will find a copy of the latest Auto Assembly Press release,

Auto Assembly 2012 Weekly Update - Six Weeks To Go!


We're now just SIX WEEKS away from Auto Assembly 2012 and we've got some great news in this weeks update as well as some VERY important information for those of you who haven't booked your tickets yet for Europe's Largest Transformers Convention taking place over the weekend of 3rd - 5th August in Birmingham, England...
 
Pre-Registrant Prize Draw
 
We can now announce details of a fantastic FREE prize draw that we are running at Auto Assembly 2012. To be eligible for this draw, you need to have a WEEKEND ticket for the convention (an Adult, Elderly or Dealer pass) or a NON-ATTENDEE ticet and you must be present at our Closing Ceremony that will take place on the Sunday afternoon (although we will obviously make exceptions to this for those with Non-Attendee Packages). You must also have booked for the convention in ADVANCE - it is NOT open to those who pay on the door so it's another great reason to pre-register for the convention!
 
The prize? The winner will receive two full weekend tickets to Auto Assembly 2013 (the date for which we will be announcing shortly) along with THREE NIGHTS accommodation in a twin or double room at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole Hotel!
 
Because the competition includes hotel accommodation as part of the prize, it is only open to adult attendees aged 18 or over and must be awarded in person. The hotel prize is also for the room and breakfast ONLY. Additional room expenses are to be paid for by the prize winner. No cash alternatives are avaialable for this prize and it is non-transferable but it is a total package worth almost £300.
 
Ticket Bookings Deadline
 
Many of us on the Committee will be arriving at the Hilton a few days before the convention to make sure that everything is ready for all of you when you arrive for Auto Assembly 2012. Also, we want to try to have a few days to relax before the chaos begins! As such, to make sure that we can process all of the bookings in time for the convention, we have now set the FINAL cut-off date for you to pre-register for the convention and to get your tickets.
 
To book your tickets online for Auto Assembly 2012, you will need to order these through the website by NO LATER than 12:00 noon GMT on Wednesday 1st August 2012. After this time, you will ONLY be able to get tickets for the convention by purchasing them on the day.
 
Benefits of pre-registration include:
 
* A personalised pass
* Entry into the pre-registration prize draw
* Early pass pick-up from 12:00 noon on Friday 3rd August 2012
 
Some on the door places will be available but we do not recommend that you leave booking until the last minute. If you wait until the day itself, you will have to wait while we process your booking so you won't gain admission to the convention as quickly as our pre-registrants!
 
Also, we want to remind everyone that in 2011 we had almost 15% of our TOTAL attendance figure book their tickets in the final 7 days... do you really want to take a chance and be disappointed this year and miss out?
 
Kitbash Workshop Convention Exclusive
 
An update now on our convention exclusive for 2012... the Marlboor head kit for Generations Wheeljack that has been produced for us by Calloway Customs to accompany this year's Kitbash Workshop. The Gold Kits have now SOLD OUT completely and we are down to about 10 of the Silver Kits. They have been a phenomenal success but if you want one of these you are now going to have to hurry. They are available for those attending the convention or those who buy our Non-Attendee Pack but you will need to order yours quickly to avoid disappointment.
 
The Bronze Kits are also selling quickly, but we estimate that the Silver and Bronze Kits will all be sold out within the next seven days, after which point you will only be able to order the Basic Kits comprising on the unpainted heads. More details can be found on the Auto Assembly website.

Transformers Convention News

Hasbro In have issued the following press release regarding their upcoming SDCC exclusive Transformers and G.I-Joe figures.  You can view the images associate with the release by clicking the title of the news story

TRANSFORMERS PRIME TERRORCON CLIFFJUMPER

(Approximate Retail Price: $24.99; Ages 5 & up; Available through HasbroToyShop.com #3329 at San Diego Comic-Con)

The DARK ENERGON will be flowing through San Diego this year with the release of this special edition Deluxe scale TERRORCON CLIFFJUMPER figure. Featuring a special “TRANSFORMERS zombie” deco, this figure looks just like he did in the Darkness Rising storyline of Hasbro Studios TRANSFORMERS PRIME animated series. This figure comes with a DARK ENERGON shard and a DARK ENERGON chest attachment in a special edition clam shell packaging designed to look like his head.


TRANSFORMERS DELUXE BRUTICUS COMBINER

(Approximate retail price: $99.99 each; Ages: 5 & up; Available through HasbroToyShop.com Booth #3329 at San Diego Comic-Con)

The TRANSFORMERS DELUXE BRUTICUS COMBINER SDCC Special Edition set features the fearsome DECEPTICON, BRUTICUS in a special CYBERTRONIAN deco as seen in the eagerly anticipated video game TRANSFORMERS: FALL OF CYBERTRON from Activision. BRUTICUS is formed when all five deluxe scale ‘combiner’ action figures in the set link together. The COMBATICONS characters BLAST OFF, VORTEX, DECEPTICON BRAWL, SWINDLE, and ONSLAUGHT each have three modes: robot, vehicle and a third ‘combiner’ mode to link together. This Special Edition also includes removable packaging resembling a silhouette of the DECEPTICON logo that becomes a display case for the BRUTICUS figure.

G.I. JOE H.I.S.S. TANK VEHICLE WITH SHOCKWAVE DECO AND 3.75" DESTRO & B.A.T. SPECIAL EDITION PACK

(Approximate Retail Price: $59.99 each; Ages: 4 & up; Available through HasbroToyShop.com, Booth #3329 at San Diego Comic-Con)

After the extreme popularity of last year’s G.I. JOE and TRANSFORMERS crossover San Diego Comic-Con special edition, Hasbro has done it again! In 2012, the iconic G.I. JOE vehicle, the H.I.S.S. TANK, will get a DECEPTICON SHOCKWAVE make-over, including a G1 SHOCKWAVE blaster attachment. The set comes with a 3.75-inch DESTRO action figure with special edition DECEPTICON deco, a 3.75-inch COBRA B.A.T. figure with special edition CONSTUCTICON deco. The set also comes with several ENERGON cubes on a cart, a briefcase full of money, and a small boom box with 3 cassette tapes- better known to TRANSFORMERS fans as the classic alt-mode of DECEPTICON spy SOUNDWAVE along with RATBAT, LASERBEAK, and RAVAGE. Yo, Joe AND Roll Out!

Transformers Convention News

 

Auto Assembly 2012 Weekly Update - Seven Weeks To Go!

 

 

 

As Auto Assembly 2012 draws closer, it's time for us to start bringing you a series of weekly updates on the convention to give you all the latest news and developments and to re-cap some of the events that have taken place this week as we build up towards Europe's Largest Transformers Convention which is taking place over the weekend of 3rd - 5th August in Bimingham, England...

 

 

 

Seven Weeks To Go

 

 

 

The convention is drawing closer and is only seven weeks away. Tickets are selling at a record rate and while we have said this repeatedly over the last couple of months, we are well on track for a record year. Bookings are almost 60% up on this point last year and we know that there are a lot of you still leaving it until the last minute before getting your tickets. Please don't leave it too late as we don't want any of you to miss out on this year's convention!

 

 

 

For those of you who have never been to Auto Assembly before but are worried about the cost, Auto Assembly is a lot more affordable than you might think. Once you have paid for the ticket itself, apart from your food, drink, travel and hotel bill there is nothing more to pay apart from anything you want to buy from the dealers. All our workshops are included in the price, the tickets get you access to the entire convention and there is no charge for autographs from our guests and you also get the convention magazine, litho, comic and more gifts free so you won't go home empty handed!

 

 

 

With rooms at the Hilton only costing £50 a night for a single inclusive of breakfast (or £60 for a twin/double) it's a lot more affordable than you might think, no matter where you are travelling from!

 

 

 

Kitbash Workshop Convention Exclusive

 

 

 

You can't have failed to see the attention that we have received over the last week for our convention exclusive Marlboor head kit for Generations Wheeljack that has been produced for us by Calloway Customs to accompany this year's Kitbash Workshop. These have been selling at an incredible rate and they are now close to being a total sell out!

 

 

 

They are only available to Auto Assembly attendees and those of you who have ordered our Non-Attendee Pack (for those of you who can't make it to the convention) and we have four types of packs available. The Gold Kits contain a painted head, sticker set and Generations Wheeljack toy; the Silver Kit contains the painted head and sticker set; the Bronze kit contains the painted head and the Basic kit is for an unpainted head.

 

 

 

The Gold kit (which is only available for physical attendees) is down to the last few copies, we now have less than 20 Silver kits left and approximately 15 Bronze kits. Unpainted heads are not as limited but you need to hurry to avoid disappointment. Remember that orders are limited to one kit per person plus a maximum of two Basic head sets.

 

 

 

Competitions

 

 

 

Next week we'll be bringing you all the details about the competitions we'll be running at Auto Assembly 2012 and how you can enter them... our Kitbash Competition, Writing and Art Competitions and - one of the highlights of the convention for the last few years - our Cosplay Competition, which is being sponsored this year by Big D's Toy Chest.

 

 

 

Non-Attendee Pack

 

 

 

Not able to make it to the convention this year? If you still want to be a part of Auto Assembly 2012 don't forget that you can get our Non-Attendee Pack which contains all of the great stuff from our goodie bag including autographs from our guests, our exclusive A2 litho print and lots more besides. You can order this from the website now!

 

 

 

Sponsorship / Advertising

 

 

 

We're still looking for companies who may be interested in sponsoring us or advertising with us here at Auto Assembly. We have some fantastic opportunities to suit ALL budgets ranging from adverts on our website, sponsorship of our display banners that we have had produced right up to guest sponsorship or advertising on / sponsorship of our convention comic or convention exclusive litho. These are fantastic opportunities to reach out to a wide range of Transformers fans so get in touch if you are interested!

 

 

 

Auto Assembly 2012 Prize Draw

 

 

 

We are working on details for a VERY special prize draw that will be taking place at Auto Assembly 2012 during the Closing Ceremony on Sunday afternoon. To be eligible to enter, you need to be 18 or over, have a full dealer, adult, or elderly weekend pass for the convention and be present at the draw (or have a Non-Attendee Pass). The prize? We'll be announcing this next week, but it's a prize worth almost £300!

 

 

 

Auto Assembly 2013

 

 

 

Yes, we're working hard on Auto Assembly 2013 as well and we are hoping to be able to announce the date VERY SOON! We are in talks with several guests at the moment and once we have the date finalised we'll be announce the ticket prices and opening bookings and - as always - we'll make our first guest of honour announcement at Auto Assembly 2012!

Transformers Convention News

If you are attending Auto Assembly 2012 and planning on taking part in our Kitbash Workshop this year, you can’t have failed to see all of the excitement surrounding the exclusive head kit that has been designed for us this year by Calloway Customs to accompany the workshop. Designed to customise Generations Wheeljack, this forms the central part of the Workshop where you’ll be taken through a step-by-step tutorial on how to modify this toy into a brand new toy complete with a new paint scheme, new sticker set and a new custom-made head.

Marlboor Kitbash Preview

There are four different custom kits being made available as convention exclusives this year. The Gold Kit, costing £35, includes a painted head, sticker set AND a Generations Wheeljack toy and there are only a few of these left! We do have supplies of the Silver Kit (containing the painted head and sticker set) and the Bronze Kit (the painted head only) as well as the Basic unpainted head but you need to hurry as they are selling FAST!

You need to be registered for the convention to get these and once you have pre-ordered them, you can pick them up at the convention. If you are not able to make it, you can order our Non-Attendee Package and purchase limited quantities of the Silver, Bronze or Basic Kits but don’t leave it too late or you could be disappointed! If you’re not able to make it to the Workshop itself, the entire session will be available to view on our Youtube Channel after the convention FREE of charge!

To find out more about ordering the head, read here. To get your Non-Attendee Pack, click here and if you’re not already booked for the convention and want to attend, visit our Bookings Page.

Transformers Convention News

WikiAlpha has been updated with images and information on Shafter, the TFCon IGear Erector inspired Not-Huffer repaint.

When his teammates need something special built, they call SHAFTER. After a stunning defeat and exile from the Savage Land, SHAFTER was determined to redeem himself. Called on by Stronghold to completely redesign all fortifications after the breakout of Toxin and his companions, SHAFTER is hard at work making sure every possible hole is plugged tight. His small size allows him to access many areas others can’t, but belies a strength that allows him to accomplish even the hardest jobs. SHAFTER’s mastery of civil engineering allows him to construct a solution from the ground up, drawing inspiration from the monuments of his home world and the wonders he’s found on Earth. SHAFTER’s abilities at design aren’t just limited to blueprints, either, and his cunning strategies have turned defeat into victory numerous times. Even with all his defensive skills, SHAFTER is no stranger to the front lines. SHAFTER is durable enough for the most toughest jobsite, and can shrug off enemy fire while “giving as good as he gets” with his powerful hydraulic arms or his induction rivet-guns. SHAFTER intends to make sure that the next enemy spy looking for trouble finds a lot more than they bargain for, and to prove once and for all that great things can come from small packages.

Transformers Convention News

 Auto Assembly 2012 Kitbash Workshop Details Release

We have had a kitbash workshop at Auto Assembly for the last few years but as we are moving the convention to a new home for 2012, we wanted to do something special this year and bring all of you a brand new, improved workshop as part of Europe's Largest Transformers Convention so we've teamed up with Calloway Customs to do something brand new which we think you'll all love...

This “Blue Peter” style presentation will last approximately one hour, and will focus on how to change a stock Hasbro toy into a different character, using all the tools and tricks of the trade available. Discussing paint removal, disassembly and cleaning, spray / paint preparation and application, wheel removal, head replacement, decal application and much more.

Presented by Nick Calloway, the designer behind the popular Calloway Customs Shapeway store, and Botcon award winner Sid Beckett.  This workshop will be backed up by a full “how to...” bullet-point refresher guide on the Auto Assembly website and a video of the presentation so you can follow along at home.

“We wanted to do something similar to the custom workshops other conventions offer,” said Nick Calloway, “without the practical difficulties of sixty people fighting over two soldering irons, against the clock. In this workshop you will learn all the skills you need so you can attempt a true custom in the comfort of your own home at your own pace.”

The limited edition convention exclusive upgrade kits themselves will be available to purchase at the convention and will be available to pre-order shortly from Calloway Custom Designs exclusively for convention attendees!
