Transformers Convention News

The TFNation team have issued a new release regarding booking a hotel for their inaugral show which has been in hide demand since registration opened on the 15th Jan

Transmission Initiated
Transmission ID: 000019
TFNation_2016
Operation: Hotel Update #2

As announced last week, our allocation of rooms at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole Hotel have almost sold out. With many more Transformers fans still looking to purchase tickets, here are some hints and tips to help you to find accommodation:

1. RESERVING A TFNATION ROOM AT THE HILTON

At the time of writing, we still have the following room types available on the core convention days;

Friday – Single, Queen Executive and Family.
Saturday – Single
Sunday – Twin Deluxe, Twin Executive, Queen Executive and Family.

We also have rooms left on the days surrounding the convention (Wednesday, Thursday, Monday and Tuesday) which might be particularly helpful for international attendees.

2. FIND A ROOMMATE

We have opened a
thread on our Facebook page for people looking for roommates. If there is a spare bed in your room, please consider assisting a fellow fan.

3. RESERVING A PUBLIC ROOM AT THE HILTON

Like most hotels, the Hilton keeps a certain amount of rooms for public sale. This means you can still get a room at the Hilton, but the price and terms of sale will be different to the special deal negotiated by TFNation.

PLEASE NOTE - The Hilton cannot assign convention rates to public reservations.

There are two main ways to reserve a publically available room:

3.A. HILTON WINTER SALE

Presently the Hilton is holding a WINTER SALE on its
website

These rooms represent a good saving over standard hotel prices, though you may have to pay upfront. Unlike TFNation rooms, breakfast is typically not included. Additional options are available for Hilton Honors members – it is members – full details can be found here http://hhonors3.hilton.com/en/index.html for more information

3.B. RESERVING HILTON ROOMS THROUGH THIRD PARTY WEBSITES
Hilton rooms are available through many public websites. Please read the terms and conditions for booking as some may require upfront payment, and/or may not include breakfast. Examples of booking sites include;

www.Hotels.com
www.Trivago.com
www.Laterooms.com

If you have booked different nights through different sources, then please let the hotel know either before the event, or at check in, as they may be able to combine your bookings into a single stay to save you having to change rooms. This only applies where all your rooms are of the same type (eg: single)

4. OTHER HOTELS NEAR TO THE HILTON

There are many alternative hotels near to the Hilton. We have listed some below, and have separated them into ‘walking distance’ and ‘driving distance’;

Firstly, within walking distance you have -

Budget Price Hotels:
Etap Hotel Birmingham Airport
IBIS Styles Birmingham Airport
The Holiday Inn Express, NEC
The Premier Inn Birmingham NEC
Novotel Birmingham airport

Luxury Price Hotels:
Genting Hotel (Resorts World)
Crown Plaza Birmingham NEC
Arden Birmingham NEC

Secondly, if you have a car, these options may work out well for you -

Travelodge Birmingham International
Holiday Inn: International Airport

5. OTHER HOTELS – FURTHER AFIELD

Closer to the event, we will post a list of hotels which are nearer to Birmingham City Centre.

We hope this update has been useful. Remember, the best part of the convention will be the parts where you are awake with friends – so please don’t get stressed if you cannot stay at the Hilton itself, as we are sure you will still have a fabulous time.

Further transmissions to follow.

Transformers Convention News

TFCon, the worlds largest fan run Transformers convention, based in Canada, have annouced that not only will the event in Toronto happen in July but they will be crossing the board to the USA to have their first US convention in August located in Chicago.

Save the dates! TFcon – The world’s largest fan-run Transformers convention is travelling to America the weekend of October 24th to 26th, 2014. TFcon USA will take place at the Hyatt Regency O’Hare in Chicago to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of the Transformers. Discounted hotel block information will be available shortly. Dealer bookings and registration information will also be available in the near future. We hope you can join us for this historic event.

This is a very interesting development, not only is it a potential challenger to BotCon's US domination of the Transformers calendar but what will the knock-on effect be for the Canadian event, which often has Hasbro Canada's involvement.  Will Big Brother Hasbro USA clamp down on this un-licensed show?

Transformers Convention News

The Auto Assembly team have announced that attendees to the convention will be able to receive a 20% discount at the bar during the event with a food discount currently being negotiated.  Below you will find a copy of the announcement

Good News! Food And Drinks At Auto Assembly 2013

Let’s face it, hotel bar prices are always that little bit more expensive than what you’d pay at your local pub. Although be honest, if your local pub was hosting several hundred friends and tens of thousands of pounds worth of robot goodness one weekend, you’d probably expect them to charge a little extra too! As fantastic as the Hilton is being, we will never hide from the fact that prices are very important to our attendees. Which is why we think you will LOVE this news!

Working in conjunction with the Hilton, we have secured a generous discount for our attendees, which will cover all drinks bought in the main Lounge Bar during the convention days of Friday until Sunday. Auto Assembly 2013 attendees will receive not 10, not 15, but a whopping 20% discount on all drinks purchased from the Lounge Bar during these times! That should be a huge help to your Transformers laden pockets! :)

But wait… There’s more…

Remember our Showcase Event on the Saturday evening? You know, that awesome event where we hold the Script Reading, Cosplay Competition and surprise announcements… The one where we have our own PRIVATE bar (which we are christening Swerve’s, for a giggle – musical blasters not supplied). Well guess what, we listened to your concerns and you’re getting 20% drinks discount there too!  No more having to run back to the main bar!

How can we make this happen?

Easy. We listened to your comments from last year and came up with a crazy-complex system. Just show the bar staff your Auto Assembly 2013 pass (which you must be wearing). The bar manager will be provided with a mockup AA pass so the bar staff expect you. That’s it! :)

Wait… Is That… More…?

Just a teaser for now but… You know how quite a few of you were worried about food prices? And you know how we want you all to be able to afford to buy your meals without having to sell your spare energon…? Well watch this space… Exciting plans are being finalised!

So in summary;

  • 20% drinks discount in the Lounge Bar for the duration of the programme days
  • 20% drinks discount in Swerve’s on the Saturday night
  • New food plans… Watch this space…

The Auto Assembly Team

Botcon have revealed their 2nd 2012 exclusive figure as the evil Tracks.  We predicted the figure uses the Transformers Universe Tracks mold but is recoloured red like Road Rage, the E-Hobby exclusive figure. Tracks is from the Shattered Glass universe which is why he is an evil Autobot

Do not be surprised if you find a black version is also released as an additional toy at some stage. You can view the images below.

Transformers Convention News

Fub Publications have sent out the following email notifications to all Botcon attendees as well as Club Members

­To all BotCon attendees who are holding current reservations:  There was a glitch in the hotel's reservation system as it was supposed to be taking one night's deposit when your made your reservation.  

Per our contract with the hotel, they need to take this deposit by charging everyone's credit card for the first night's room and tax.

In order not to impact anyone's Christmas shopping, I have asked them to hold off making the charge until January 3, 2012.  

In addition, this deposit will be refundable until April 9, 2012. If you cancel after April 9, 2012 your deposit will NOT be refunded.  

If you are holding any rooms "in case someone needs them" we ask you to either turn the reservation over to another party, or to release them by January 2, 2012, as we still have other attendees who need to make room reservations.  Again, all rooms being held will have a one night's deposit charged on January 3, 2012.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you.

Thanks for your support,

Brian

Transformers Convention News

All The Cool Stuff have sent out the following announcement regarding the announcement of two new guest for Roll Out Roll Call 2012.  If you do not know what Roll Out Roll Call is then allow me to explain.  The event if a two day convention taking place in March in Southampton here within the United Kingdom.  The show is dedicated to Action Force, G.I-Joe and Transformers.  Next year will be the third show for this growing event and we encourage everyone who is a fan of one of these lines to drop by as it's going to be a blast as well as a great chance to catch up with some fellow fans at the end of the Winter.

Back to the news, here is a copy of the announcement

"Since announcing Larry Hama's attendance, there's a lot of excitement and interest in Roll Out Roll Call 2012, the UK Transformers, GI-Joe & Action Force show.  Want to know next 2 guests for Roll Out Roll Call 2012? Checkout & listen to Episode 25 of "What's on JOE Mind" for the exclusive new guest announcements: http://whatsonjoemind.podbean.com


In addition the details of the first Custom Competition are also up, check out the threads over at: http://www.bloodforthebaron.com/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=102&t=10927

There will be more exclusive announcements over the next few weeks, so stay tuned or follow the show on Twitter @rolloutrollcall."

Transformers At The Moon will be in attendance at the event, as we are fans of both of these lines, and we are also please to announce that we are also sponsoring the event next year to try to help it grow.

If you come along to Auto Assembly every August you no doubt feel that a year is too long to meet-up with your Transformers friends, sure there is the odd meet-up arrange but most of us can't make them or justify the trips, but with Roll Out Roll Call there is a lot more going on to justify the journey.  You will have the social aspect, the dealers, panels, the cosplayer and, of course, the guests.  The events are almost 6 months apart giving everyone the best possible chance to make both events and help unite and strength the bonds of the fan communities for both these iconic lines.

I encourage you to keep you eye on the show, the official twitter account, Transformers At The Moon, Blood For The Baron, What's on Joe Mind, Full Metal Hero and The Nerdsphere for more announcements as the event gets closer.

As such I have uploaded only our 4th video to our YouTube ?account ­which consists of a random montage of footage we recorded from the dealer room at Botcon 2011. The footage is available in HD format down and is the the second video we have uploaded to YouTube from our library of convention footage that we have recorded over the past ten years. At somepoint we hope to share all of thhe videos with you which include videos from Japanese Winter Wonderfests, Botcons, Auto Assembly, Transforce as well as other conventions. We must have something like 40 or 50 hours worth of convention footage that we have never made public before but always planned to release when we found time. Anyway, you can find the video footage below.
