I'm tempted to print this out just to put red X's on the dead. You know, as the series goes on.


:P (to Zodconvoy)

Well, if Brainstorm is missing...honestly there are a lot of the 3rd tier crew missing, but oh well (Hoist, Brawn, Inferno, Blaster, Cosmos, Powerglide, Perceptor...).

Still a rad print that if I were there, I would buy.

I love the art, make no mistake, but I still have to point out that Hot Rod seems to look a lot like Megaman. But seriously, love it.

Idunno why it keeps takin me here, Im tryin to comment on the Nick Roche print. Anyway...

All I wanted to say was I agree, rodimus is giving off a protoman vibe. My first thought was 'why does roddy look like Jack from prime?'

I dont care for the way Drift looks either. But I still love the characters. It's his style, so thats all good, but my humble opinion is I prefer them to look less cartoony than they do.

I like that Milne style, the way he draws roddys "wings" and stuff.

to be honest, I dont know why a bunch of the autobots are basically psychos these days. Whirl obviously, Brainstorms a creeper, and why is Chromedome basically Mindwipe. I read them by trades , so I left off at the part where the ****** robot wants to "be a decepticon" all playin with his fingers like a dumbass. I wanted to slap the snot out of him, and I hope Ratchet does it for me in the next trade. (you can see why I dip in and out of the forums, in hopes of avoiding spoilers....good luck, I already know Grimlocks alive etc....thanks amazon). Oh and if they kill off Ultra Magnus Im gonna be one very unhappy transfan. I know its kinda sorta a time travel thing possibly like x-men future or whatever, but if they kill UM im gonna be pissed. Oh and bring Springer back . If whirl killed him off Im gonna be pretty effin upset as well :BOT:

Because the post that's linked to the news article was posted here. Pretty much all Auto Assembly related information has been going into this thread since the start of last year, keeps things tidy and any press releases from AA get front paged anyway so nobody should be missing out on developments if they don't check in here.

You should buy the LSTOTW hardback. Springer's fate is an added prose story.

Sorry guys, looks like I was too busy having fun to do the up to the minute updating on convention goings on that I was planning to. Fantastic weekend, great to see old friends and make new ones and for me that's what really makes AA, the attendees and their boundless enthusiasm. The customising seminar this year was a bit of a personal highlight for me as well and I'm looking forward to this being a regular feature of the program in the future.

Here's what I came home with toywise,

And my pictures from across the weekend including guests, cosplayers, custom contest entries and some snaps of the Hexatron prototype,

Motto: "My banjo is everything; defeat is ukelele"
As a first time attendee, I'd like to say what a blast AA was. It was really nice to meet like-minded people, and Waaghlord is a cool guy! My favourite part was the kitbashing workshop which was a real laugh to attend, as well as being informative. Nick and Sid were both very helpful. My only regret is that I had a Saturday ticket, and felt like I actually needed more time to enjoy everything.

Other highlights included the RG: One panel, and seeing so many talented artists, writers and actors under one roof, who were all great to talk to. I will definately make it next year. A terrible picture of my 'haul' is below - I'm really glad that I finally got black Hybrid Convoy.

Was there an "official" bio posted anywhere for Marlboor?

The bio and specs for Marlboor are in the bonus free edition of our digital magazine, CT Alpha, that we released the day before the convention this year. You can get it from the website at www.ct-alpha.com but it has also been emailed to all our Attendees and Non-Attendees.

Cheers, my friend!

Auto Assembly 2012 Marlboor Kitbash Workshop Video Released

All of us here at Auto Assembly are still recovering from Auto Assembly 2012 which was our most successful convention ever attracting just under 800 fans from all over the world to Birmingham reinforcing our position as Europe's largest Transformers convention.

A few months ago, when we announced our partnership with Calloway Customs to bring all of our attendees (and those who ordered our Non-Attendee Pack) our Marlboor upgrade kit for Generations Wheeljack to convert the toy into an updated version of Diaclone Marlboor we were shocked and pleased with the response to it and promised that we would release the footage from the accompanying workshop for those who couldn't make it.

Well now everyone can see exactly what you need to do with the kit in this specially recorded workshop hosted by Sid Beckett and Nick Calloway that was filmed exclusively for our Youtube Channel during the convention weekend!



We can also exclusively reveal that we are looking into plans for a follow-up custom kit and workshop for Auto Assembly 2013 with Calloway Customs! It's still in the early planning stages right now but to be a part of this workshop book your tickets for next year's convention early to avoid disappointment. Tickets are selling at a phenomenal rate and it looks already as if Auto Assembly 2013 will be our first ever sell-out event! We will be doing another Non-Attendee Pack for those of you who can't make it, but this won't be unveiled until some time next year.

For those of you thinking about attending Auto Assembly 2013, our guests of honour next year are Steve Blum (Starscream in Transformers: Prime), Dan Gilvezan (Bumblebee in G1) and Neil Kaplan (Optimus Prime in Robots In Disguise). Further guests including details of our comic guest line-up, will be announced shortly.

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 http://www.autoassembly.org.uk

If you can't make it to the convention, we'll be offering a Non-Attendee Package early in the new year and running other online activities that you'll be able to get involved with!

Hope to see you all next year!
