Transformers Convention News
Auto Assembly 2013 Kitbash Workshop Add-On Unveiled – BAD COP!
 
We know you’ve all been waiting patiently for details on this, but we’re now proud to unveil this year’s exclusive Kitbash Add-On Pack for Auto Assembly 2013!
 
In conjunction with Keith’s Fantasy Club and Sensible Collectibles, we are proud to present another add-on kit following the huge success of last year’s very succesful Kitbash Workshop, which will again be accompanied by an exclusive workshop at the convention itself. This kit is a new and exciting add-on kit to convert a readily available Hasbro figure into a new character for your “Classics” Transformers collection.
 
We took the feedback from last years add-on kit, and we feel we have vastly improved on last years kit. Partnering with Keith’s Fantasy Club, this add-on kit is a much simpler affair than last years, and comes with a fully painted factory quality ABS plastic head and light-bar, and a pre-cut sticker sheet.
 
This will be available in two different forms – both extremely limited – and each will include the brand new and unique exclusive BAD COP head and light bar at a new, lower price compared with the Auto Assembly 2012 kit!
 
The Gold Pack contains the base figure (a FE TF Prime Vehicon figure, unreleased in the UK), the exclusive head and light bar, and a pre-cut sticker set. These are strictly limited to 50 sets and are £30 each. The Silver Pack contains the exclusive head, and uncut sticker set. These have a production run of 100 sets and are £15 each.
 
The Gold Packs are available to convention attendees ONLY but the Silver Packs will be available as part of the Non-Attendee Pack which will be unveiled in the next 24 hours! Both the Gold and Silver Packs will be available to pre-order through the website from tomorrow, as are our existing convention exclusives.
 
Sales of these will be restricted and Gold Packs will be limited to one per person and the Silver Packs will be limited to a maximum of two per person to ensure that as many people as possible can get these. As we have said, supplies of these are limited so they will be made available on a strictly first come, first served basis. If you haven't already registered for Auto Assembly 2013 and want to get one of these kits then book your tickets now as we can not hold these aside for people who have not registered!
 
No particular skill set is needed in order to complete your figure, as they are designed for novice customisers, however how to convert the set will be demonstrated in the kitbash seminar. Auto Assembly and KFC accept no responsibility if you damage or fail to complete your kitbash, and we offer the service of the Kitbash Seminar and follow-up online resources including the video of the workshop that will be released after the convention merely as a guide to assist you, with no guarantees as to the end result.
 
With regards to the convention itself, we will be joined at Auto Assembly 2013 by Dan Gilvezan (G1 Bumblebee), Neil Kaplan (RiD Prime) and Steve Blum (TF: Prime Starscream), as well as our literary guests Simon Furman, James Roberts, Nick Roche, Andrew Griffith, Jim Sorenson and many more.
 
Auto Assembly 2013 is Europe's largest EVER Transformers convention and is taking place over the weekend of 9th - 11th August 2013 at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole Hotel. To book your tickets or find out more including details of all the dealers attending, all of our guests and a full schedule for the weekend, visit the website at www.autoassembly.org.uk
 
Hope to see you all in August!

Transformers Convention News

Auto Assembly have made another guest announcement for this years event and it's none other than Jim Sorenson!!  Yes after a 3 year absence from Auto Assembly, Jim, who's last UK show appearance was at Roll Out Roll Call where he and Bill Forster announced the release of their G.I-Joe Field Manual books, Jim is returning but will he be bringing the fez?

Here is a copy of the official announcement:

After a three year absence, we are proud to announce that writer Jim Sorenson is making a much-overdue return to Auto Assembly for the 2013 convention taking place over the weekend of 9th – 11th August 2013.

In his own words, Jim is a super-secret spy, has a motorcycle, marooned in space, meets Hercules… or not… He’s been a long-time fan of science-fiction literature in general and Transformers in particular. His guidebooks are well regarded by the fan communities for their exhaustive attention to detail. Reports of his incarceration in another dimension should be dismissed as the unfounded rumors they are.

He has been working for IDW since 2006 and in that time he has been responsible (solely and in collaboration with Bill Forster) for Transformers: The Ark, The Ark Volume II, The AllSpark Almanac, The Complete Ark, The AllSpark Almanac II. He is currently working on Transformers Legacy and the Transformers: 30th Anniversary Collection. In addition to these he also wrote the GI: Joe field Manuals, volumes 1 and 2 and is currently working on a new Robotech RPG supplement. Jim’s blog can be found at http://boltax.blogspot.co.uk/

At Auto Assembly 2010 Jim presented Oddities And Curiosities, a retrospective look at 25 years of rare Transformers artwork to a crowd of over 500 people in Birmingham, England and he will be taking to the stage at the convention for a Q&A Panel… who knows what he will say this time around!

If you have not already booked for the convention, tickets are still available and they can be purchased from the site at: http://www.autoassembly.org.uk/auto-assembly-2013-ticket-bookings/ but they are selling faster than ever this year so book early to avoid disappointment as we do have a cut-off of 1,000 attendees this year!

As well as Jim, we are being joined at the convention by Dan Gilvezan (G1 Bumblebee), Neil Kaplan (RiD Prime) and Steve Blum (TF: Prime Starscream), as well as comic guests Simon Furman, James Roberts, Andrew Griffith, Nick Roche, and many more.

Auto Assembly 2013 is Europe’s largest Transformers convention and is taking place over the weekend of 9th – 11th August 2013 at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole Hotel. To book your tickets or find out more including details of all the dealers attending, all of our guests and a full schedule for the weekend, visit the website at www.autoassembly.org.uk

Hope to see you all in August!

Fub Publications have updated the Botcon website with two new images of their Obsidian exclusive figure from this years set.  When the toy was first shown off, the figure's colour scheme was based upon the original toy, however it seems, from this photoshopped mock-up, that fan reaction has caused them to re-think the colour scheme so that the toy will now be decoed to look much closer to the CGI animated show.  You can view the new images below and all of the Botcon 2013 images after the jump.

The official Botcon Twitter account brings us some more Botcon 2013 news - they have posted an image of the Botcon 2013 baseball cap. The Botcon 2013 Baseball cap features the Megaplex version of the Decepticon symbol with Fun Publication's take on Machine Wars Thundercracker in front of it. Like in the original line, their illustration of Machine Wars Thundercracker is a redeco of Skywarp - in other words, it is based upon the Revenge of the Fallen Dirge mold.

An illustration does not a toy make, however you might be interested in an exchange of tweets between one Twitter user and Botcon:


- From Twitter user Emerald Beacon - so you're basically confirming MW Thundercracker with this hat, right?

-Response from Botcon - Basically...
