Transformers Convention News

It's been a while since we have posted about TFNation, partly because we've been so busy working on the show, that we thought we would post a quick round-up of recent press releases.

This evening TFNation have announced a new full-length Transformers Animated fan graphic novel will be available at the show called Trial and Error. The story has been written to tie up the Transformers Animated series. You can watch a trailer below.

Yesterday they announced that pre-orders are now open for their official convention T-Shirt which is available for just £15!

On a guest front they have now announced 17 guests for the show, yes 17! The last two have been Geoff Senior and Mark Ryan!

Cosplay Contest Applications are also now open and the first panel was announced as covering the Brave series.

The full schedule for the event is set to be released tonight so keep checking for further updates

TFNation_2017
Operation: The Forge Returns for TFNation 2017
TFNation is not only pleased to announce that The Forge is returning for TFNation 2017, but also that applications are now open!
The Forge, located in a specially designated room just outside of the main convention hall, is our home for fan art and crafts and shall be joined this year by various other features, details to be announced in future transmissions. The Forge is an area for our creative attendees to promote, display and sell their work.
Here is how it works...
STAGE 1 - MAKE AN APPLICATION
Aspiring Forge artists and crafters are required to pre-register their interest by completing the application form linked below.
You must be aged 16 or above to make an application. You do not need to have booked a ticket at this stage - you are free to apply before making that decision.
Successful applicants will receive an email inviting them to make a formal booking. Applicants who are not successful this time will be notified and will be welcome to apply again in future years.
TFNation staff will allow a grace period of 14 days, until March 13th, before reviewing applications. This is to allow as many people as possible the chance to apply. All applications will be reviewed by TFNation staff. If necessary, applications will remain open after March 13th until all spaces are sold.
Space will once again be limited, so we recommend getting your applications in as soon as you can.
STAGE 2 - PAY FOR YOUR TABLE
If your application is successful, you will then be able to book your table.
Both Forge Craft and Forge Artist Alley stalls cost £25.00, including built in insurance. You must also hold a valid TFNation 2017 full weekend ticket.
If you do not hold a weekend ticket then one shall automatically be added to your Forge booking. If you have already purchased a day ticket and your Forge application is approved, then your ticket will be automatically upgraded to a Weekend ticket for an additional price.
Full terms and conditions will be available at the time of booking - but here are the important things you need to know about each table type.
FORGE CRAFT STALLS
- For attendees to promote, display and sell any hand-made craft items. Up to three individuals may share a single Forge Craft Stall.
- Stalls cost £25.00.
- Stalls are only available to attendees who have purchased a weekend ticket.
- Some crafters produce art prints of their creations. We are happy to allow these, however toys, sketches and art commissions may not be sold here. This is to protect our artists and traders who have invested a lot of time and money into their stalls.
FORGE ARTIST ALLEY STALLS
- For attendees to promote and display any art prints, sketches and art commissions.
- Artist Alley stalls are for one person only.
- Stalls cost £25.00.
- Stalls are only available to attendees who have purchased a weekend ticket.
- Toys and craft goods may not be sold here. Again, this is to protect our traders and crafters.
All stalls must be staffed by the person(s) who paid for them. This is to ensure the safety of your stock and our attendees. The TFNation crew are unable to staff stalls.
Please CLICK HERE for further details on applying to The Forge.
We look forward to seeing your amazing creations!

Transformers Convention News

TFNation have announced that Japanese artist Kei Zama shall be one of their guests at TFNation 2017 which takes place August 11th through August 13th 2017 at the Hilton Metropole Birmingham in England. You can virew a copy of their announcement below

Transmission Initiated
Transmission ID:00009
TFNation_2017
Operation: Kei Zama to attend TFNation 2017

With IDW’s universe of Transformers comics going from strength to strength, the depth of talent involved in creating them grows ever greater and now we at TFNation are pleased to bring more of that greatness to you, in the form of Kei Zama, returning for our second year.

Starting with her series of covers for IDW’s Transformer line in September 2015, Kei-sensei has rapidly gained a large fan following, due to her mean and gritty artistic style, as well as her stunning commission work. Following on from her cover work, she is now bringing the continuing adventures of Optimus Prime to life (along with writer John Barber and colourist Josh Burcham) in his current titular series.

Outside of Transformers, Kei-sensei made her Marvel comics art debut with last year’s Scarlet Witch #10, has provided art for Sparklight comics, as well as covers for IDW’s Atomic Robo, and recently achieved a personal dream in working on an ABC Warriors-related piece for Fleetway/2000ad. Her Blackblood-themed story (written by the mighty Patt Mills) is set to show off her undeniable talent for monochrome imagery and prove a perfect fit for the tone of this title.

We advise all our attendees to keep an eye on Kei-sensei’s blog http://steelandstarlight.com/ for details of her commission list, as the event draws closer.

Kei Zama will be signing autographs, discussing classic British rock bands and selling artwork (including her highly-prized sketchbooks) at TFNation 2017 at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole Hotel. We look forward to seeing you there!

Transformers Convention News

TFNation have issued the following release regarding ticket prices for their 2017 convention

Dear attendees,

On 21st December 2016 we provided an outline for future important updates. This is the first important piece of information you will need before tickets go on sale on 1st February 2017.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Pricing for TFNation 2017 tickets will be as follows;

WEEKEND TICKETS
Senior (60+) £20.00
Adult (18-59) £60.00
Young Adult (16-17) £30.00
Child (0-15) Weekend: Free, with ticket-holding Adult/Senior.

SATURDAY ONLY
Senior (60+) £15.00
Adult (18-59) £35.00
Young Adult (16-17) £20.00
Child (0-15) Saturday: Free, with ticket-holding Adult/Senior.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

MAJOR CHANGES TO PRICING STRUCTURE

1. CHILD TICKETS
The age bracket for children has been increased from 0-12, to 0-15, meaning more youngsters can now come for free provided they are with a ticket-holding adult. We hope this will make the convention more affordable for families.

2. SATURDAY TICKETS
Following attendee feedback, we have taken the decision to sell Saturday only tickets in 2017, in addition to Sunday only and Weekend tickets.

WEBSITE UPGRADE

Please note, we have deactivated the TFNation website for important upgrades and maintenance. This includes the implementation of new SSL security certification, and purchase flow testing, to ensure the website is ready for ticket sales day. High demand is anticipated, so extra measures are being taken.

The TFN Techbots will provide further updates shortly… humour them, they love details.

Transformers Convention News

TFNation have issued the following press release regarding the state of the hotel rooms:

Transmission_Initiated
TransmissionID: 000017
TFNation_2016
Operation: Hotel Update

Since our new website went live, it has become apparent that the TFNation crew is blessed with a lot of support. We cannot thank you enough for this, as we continue to build on what will be a fantastic event.

One of the results of this strong support has been an unprecedented demand for convention-rate rooms at the Hiton Metropole. The reservations have been fast and unrelenting as people have booked early to secure their spot. Due to this demand, the remaining allocation has become limited in a very short period of time.

Naturally, we have received a lot of questions regarding the remaining rooms, so we wanted to take this opportunity to answer some of these points, provide some information and keep everyone upto date.

1. ARE ALL OF THE DISCOUNTED ROOMS SOLD OUT?
No. Although some room types have sold out on the core convention nights (twins and doubles being the very first room types that everyone booked) there are still other options available. The Sunday night allocation saw the most demand and so the remaining options for that night are the most limited.

2. WILL TFNATION RECEIVE ANY OTHER DISCOUNTED ROOMS?
We have already liaised with the hotel and it is very unlikely that we will be afforded any more rooms at the convention-rate, as they have to cater for multiple events. With this in mind, we encourage you to make alternate plans now.

3. WHAT ROOM TYPES ARE LEFT ON THE CORE DATES?
We still have a healthy allocation of Friday and Saturday single rooms at the discounted price, but they won’t last forever, so we encourage you to book quickly.

We also have some executive upgrade rooms remaining, both twin and doubles. Remember, whilst executive rooms are more expensive, they give you access to the executive bar, with its selection of complimentary alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks. Plus, sharing a room (and therefore, the nightly rate) will help to bring your costs down, somewhat.

4. WORKING WITH THIS NEWS, ATTENDEE REACTIONS AND WHAT NOT TO DO.

Some attendees may not be aware, but many previous events at the Hilton have sold out of their discounted rooms, with lots of attendees sourcing alternate accommodation without too much bother. If you have not been in this position before, then it is natural to become a little stressed by the situation. It is, however, important to remember that nothing has gone wrong - the truth is that a large amount of our TF community have booked straight away and taken up many of the options available.

Sadly, we have received reports that a small number of people have called the Hilton directly and have been less than polite to reception staff. This serves little purpose but to damage TFNation's relationship with the Hilton and may, infact, impact future years'
allocations. We strongly urge our attendees not to do this - reception staff do not have the authority to give you additional rooms, or change booked rates, and do not deserve to be treated badly during their day job.

Thanks for your understanding.

5. WHAT TO DO

Stay calm. We are seven months away from the event - you have lots of time to plan. There are multiple ways you can book alternative accomodation, with the minimum of fuss. Remember, this is where you will sleep after enjoying all the convention's events. While staying outside of the main hotel may add extra time when returning to your room, it will not impact the jokes in the bar, the workshops we will announce shortly, the panels, the guests and your friends who you will no doubt meet, that weekend.

Below, we will list the options you can take now, while we work on alternative avenues. We advise you to take prompt action as holding out for your prefered room to become available again will only reduce your options.

6. BOOK WHAT YOU CAN
If you are looking for a single room for the three nights then we suggest you book the Friday and Saturday at the Hilton, and then you just need to find an option for the Sunday. Even if the last night costs more, you have at least saved on the other two nights and that will lessen the impact of a Sunday booking.

7. 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.

8. HILTON WINTER SALE
Although the convention rate rooms are selling quickly, the Hilton – like most hotels – reserves some rooms for public sale.

Presently the Hilton is holding a WINTER SALE event on its website http://www3.hilton.com/.../hilton-birmingham.../index.html

These rooms represent a good saving over standard hotel prices, though you may have to pay upfront. Unlike convention rooms, breakfast is typically not included.

If you already have a discounted room booked for certain convention nights then you can ask the Hilton to keep you in that room for your public booking, if it is the same room type. To do this, you can contact them shortly before the event, or ask reception when you check in. The Hilton is not able to change the cost of publicly booked rooms to the convention rate, after ordering.

9. THIRD PARTY ROOMS
Third party websites also sell some of the publicly available rooms at the Hilton. While some bookings will be cheaper than the Hilton's Winter Sale rooms, payment dates and breakfast options may vary - always read the terms. We suggest you try the following:
Hotels.com
Trivago.com
Spareroom.com

9. OTHER HOTELS
This week we will update our website to provide you with a list of alternative accommodation in the area – there are lots of options within walking distance or a short commute. As we are seven months away from the convention, browsers will have numerous options.

We hope this update has been helpful and we thank you for your understanding. We know booking hotel rooms can be a stressful time. Whether or not you get your first choice room, we hope as many of you as possible will join us at the convention.

Transformers Convention News

Tickets for TFNation 2016 are available right now over on the TFNation website. At the same time the new TFNation website has launched containing information on the guests, news stories, information on the crew, photo albums and much more to come.

Below you will find a copy of both of the most recent news stories

 

Transmission_Initiated

TFNation_2016

Operation: Hotel Discount Activating

With registration for TFNation 2016 opening at noon on Friday 15th January now is the perfect time to reveal our discounted hotel room rate and also to remind you of some features that are included within your ticket price.

WHAT IS INCLUDED IN YOUR TICKET PRICE?

Whether you buy a ticket that lasts for the full weekend, or just for the Sunday, there is plenty to see and do at TFNation. This is what your ticket entitles you to;

1. Access to autograph sessions. Our guests will not charge for autographs.
2. Access to panels and workshops.
3. Access to our dealer room.
4. Buying a TFNation ticket also means you qualify to reserve a hotel room at a reduced rate (subject to availability)

(access to all areas is subject to maximum room capacity, for safety reasons.)


CONVENTION RATE HOTEL ROOMS

The Hilton Birmingham Metropole (or as we like to call it - The Hilton Metroplex) ... has kindly offered the following discounted nightly rates to TFNation attendees;

- £59.00 Single Deluxe room, including complimentary breakfast.
- £68.00 Twin / Queen room, including complimentary breakfast.
- from £98.00 Family room, including complimentary breakfast - family room prices increases by £12.00 per each additional adult.

(executive class rooms also available at an additional charge)

All rates are nightly and all include VAT.

It is important to remember that you do not have to pay for your hotel room at the time of reservation. So reserve now to avoid disappointment, then pay at check in.

As a first year convention our bedroom allocation is limited, so we strongly advise you to book early to avoid disappointment. If your chosen stay appears to be unavailable, it may just mean one room type on one day is full - try different combinations of nights and room types for the best chance of securing accommodation at the event.

We will be monitoring room sales closely and will be providing information about nearby alternatives, should our allocation sell out quickly.


NEW WEBSITE INCOMING

Not only are both ticket registration and hotel bookings available from 12pm (GMT) Friday but we are also launching a brand new convention website. The new site will enable you to follow our transmissions, book tickets using our secure booking process and find out more information about our guests as well as the fantastic hotel facilities that residents will have access to.

Thank you for your support. We look forward to welcoming you to our new website this coming Friday!

Operation: ACCOMMODATION

We wish to start this transmission by issuing a huge THANK YOU to everybody who has booked tickets to attend TFNation 2016 today. Your support is much appreciated.

Bedroom sales have been phenomenal and we are aware that some room types are now in very limited supply. We've received many good questions, so we are going to provide some of the answers for you here.

1. We do still have bedrooms available, but some rooms types on some nights are in short supply.

2. As we still have rooms left we encourage you to try different booking combinations when looking for a room. Try looking for individual nights to benefit from the deals.

3. We are already liaising with the hotel to see whether more rooms can be provided. This cannot be guaranteed, but we will let you know if we are successful.

4. We have already prepared detailed advice on alternative accommodation, because we want as many people as possible to enjoy TFNation. This will be released shortly.

Thank you again for joining us on this exciting adventure. Your support has been fantastic!

Transformers Convention News

With Auto Assembly 2013 rapidly approaching you'd think that the "AA Team" would have their hands full with this years event, but no they haven't, as they have announced that tickets for Auto Assembly 2014 are open right now!!  Check out the press release below:

Auto Assembly 2014 Ticket Bookings Are Open!
 
Despite us still working on this year's event, we’ve been inundated with emails and messages over the last few weeks here at Auto Assembly HQ about Auto Assembly 2014. Many of you are – for one reason or another – unable to join us at the convention this year and have been asking us not only what the date is for Auto Assembly 2014 but when tickets will be going on sale. At the same time, we’ve seen a lot of talk online about next year’s event and it’s clear to us that there are a lot of people planning on making their return to the event to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of Transformers with us…
 
So bearing that in mind we’ve listened to all of you demanding that we make tickets available for next year’s convention sooner rather than later so we are proud to announce that bookings for Auto Assembly 2014 are open NOW! Auto Assembly 2014 will be taking place over the weekend of Friday 8th – Sunday 10th August 2014 and once again it will be held at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole Hotel in Birmingham, England. While we can’t reveal too much about the convention yet, we can confirm that we have already signed a number of guests to appear already, many of whom will be revealed at Auto Assembly 2013.
 
However, we can tell you that we will be bringing no fewer than FOUR overseas guests to the UK next year. Who will they be? Well, you’ll have to wait until 10th August 2013 to find out more…
 
Once again we have arranged special room rates for our attendees at the Hilton which are £53 a night for single rooms and £64 a night for twin/double rooms inclusive of breakfast and details of these will be available very shortly. As with Auto Assembly 2013, we expect the convention block to sell out very quickly so we strongly recommend booking sooner rather than later to avoid disappointment if you want to stay on site!
 
To book your tickets, go to the Auto Assembly website now! We look forward to seeing all of our old friends again next year and plenty of new ones and hopefully many of you next weekend at Auto Assembly 2013!
 
If you haven't booked for this year, tickets are still available for this year from the website as well and this is set to be one of the best Transformers fan events of the year! So remember, pre-registrations close on Thursday 1st August 2013!
 
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

Transformers Convention News

Two more LA-based guests announced for Roll Out / Roll Call 2012!

We're 16 weeks away from Europe's largest combined G.I-Joe / Action ­Force and Transformers show Roll Out / Roll Call 2012 and it is with great pleasure that Transformers At The Moon can exclusively reveal the names of two more guests for the show.

The pair are long time fans of both Transformers and G.I-Joe / Action Force and will be making only their second appearance at a European Convention.  They are well known within the fan communities of both franchises as well as generally being two of the nicest and most interesting people you could meet.  Have you guest who they are yet?

That's right, the guests are none other than Jim Sorenson andd Bill Forster, writers of the both the Allspark Almanac books, the Ark Books (all three of them) and most recently Allspark Almanac Addendum (published within issue 6 of the Timelines comic that re-printed The Stunti-con Job).  Jim and Bill will be on hand all weekend to meet, great, sign, and generally hang out with fans of both shows as well as taking to the stage over the weekend to give a presentation and take question on both Transformers and G.I-Joe.

Jim and Bill were extremely popular guests when we bought them over for Auto Assembly 2010 and we have been keen on bringing them back to the UK for another show.  At the same time they are both as keen, if not more so, to come back to the UK and meet up with everyone again and so brings us all great pleasure to have them back on these shores for a show that covers not just Transformers but also G.I-Joe, a series that both these men care about.

So if you were unsure whether to attend Roll Out Roll Call 2012 in Southampton next March, then I hope that this announcement will convince you to attend the event and support it.

Roll Out / Roll Call 2012 is the UK Fan Show Convention dedicated to Transformers, Action Force & GI Joe which will be taking place over the weekend of the 10th-11th March 2012 at Southampton's largest hotel, Jurys Inn overlooking East Park.  It will be the third show for the event and is organised primarily by Dave Tree of All The Cool Stuff.  Everyone helping out organise and promote the event is very proud to welcome some very special guests from the world of Transformers, Action Force & GI-Joe including Larry Hama (1st UK show), Simon Furman, Andrew Wildman, Robert Atkins (1st UK show), Jon Goode (1st UK show), Jim Sorenson and Bill Forster.  There are still at least three special guests to be announced, so stay tuned to the websites at the bottom of this announcement for all the latest news.

There will also be special presentations and panels on the toys, comics and cartoons from special guest presenters, plus in addition there will be show exclusives and trading affiliates, who will be attending the show with a host of the latest, and in some cases, unique range of merchandise.

Tickets will be on limited availability, so please book in advance to avoid disappointment. Tickets will go on sale soon.

RollOut Roll Call 2012
10th - 11th March 2012
Jurys Inn, Southampton

Transformers Convention News

I have uploaded the photographs that we took whilst at Auto Assembly 2011 here in the UK.  The convention took place last week end in Birmingham and was another outstanding success.

We'd once again like to thank everyone who attended the event from the guests, the dealers, the volunteers, the committee, the hotel staff and, of course, Simon and Trish for all their work throughout the year

Transformers Convention News

Auto Assembly sent out the following press release yesterday

Transformers Actors Rally behind Auto Assembly 2011!

With less than a week to go before the Transformers event of the year, it’s decision time - are you going to join us in giving a thunderous farewell to the Holiday Inn, in it’s final year as AA central?
We’ve done all we can to persuade you – we’ve told you about our room full of Transformers dealers, our guest panels, exclusive giveaways, our unveiling of new and never before seen video game information from Jagex... we’ve even told you that Hasbro will be in attendance this year to add a final shine to what is certainly going to be the biggest and most phenomenal event we have ever hosted.
But still, with just four days until pre-registration closes, some of you are undecided... so how about, rather than taking our word you listen to what some of our friends have got to say about us... and my, do we have friends in high places!
And not to be outdone, with the appliance of science we are able to bring you this special presentation put together for you all by Mr Paul Eiding himself - the voice of Generation 1 Perceptor.
Also... who remembers these special messages from last year? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f1GWR4hXiv0
Friends, your heroes have spoken! Come to Auto Assembly 2011! And let’s break that European attendance record one more time! If you can't make it this year, don't forget you can book NOW for Auto Assembly 2012 and beat the rush!
Auto Assembly 2011 is taking place over the weekend of 12th - 14th August 2011 at the Holiday Inn Birmingham City Centre, Birmingham, England and tickets are available from the website now.
