For those of us dwelling on this side of the Atlantic (that's Europe, to be clear), this weekend sees Auto Assembly 2014 finally opening its doors! If you'll be part of the biggest Transformers convention on the continent, make sure to say hi, show off your hauls and photos and check out the event schedule here!
It’s been a long road getting here, but at long last we can unveil the full schedule for the weekend for Auto Assembly 2014 and we believe that it’s our best programme of events yet for Europe’s Largest Transformers Convention…
We’ve got a packed weekend of events lined up with workshops, several guest Q&A panels on every day, our infamous script reading, a live band, autograph sessions and much more – so much in fact that our team has been struggling for weeks trying to fit everything in! Anyway, you can now view and download the Auto Assembly 2014 Schedule in full as a PDF file to read on your PC, tablet or mobile device (ideal to bring with you to the convention!).
Time for another update from the folks over at TFCon Chicago. She's been breaking through the IDW comics big time, with Transformers: Windblade and many many covers - now you get the chance to meet her again: Sarah Stone has been confirmed as a guest for the US branch of the convention!
We are pleased welcome Transformers comic book artist Sarah Stone to TFcon Chicago this fall.
Sarah is the artist for IDW’s highly successful Transformers: Windblade miniseries that just concluded. She will be available all weekend for commissions, prints and signings at TFcon Chicago 2014.
It's time for your Pre-SDCC edition of the Seibertron.com Twincast/Podcast. Join Host Scotty P, Seibertron, and our guest for the evening, pop-up wizard Matthew Reinhart, as we take a look at everything Transformers - from the rare and unreleased B-side EP of Generation 2 to SDCC exclusives to comics and more!
Editor's note: This show was recorded on July 16th and was delayed during Seibertron.com's coverage of the 2014 San Diego Comic-Con. Sorry for the long delay between episodes, loyal listeners!
Insanity on eBay! Some of the rarest Transformers out there have shown up for auction - G2 Menasor and 6 unreleased Generation 2 Go-Bots. Where did these come from? More intriguingly, where could they be going? Tune in to hear our thoughts on this rare "B-Side" of collecting.
Like the Ark of the Covenant, only way nerdier
We then shift gears ahead 20 years to this year's SDCC Exclusives, specifically the Dinobots playset. Matthew Reinhart, the designer of the pop-up playset of Mt. St. Hillary is here on the show with us to discuss the process of how this came to be and tells us about some really cool easter eggs to look out for! You don't want to miss this.
"Can we call it a playset? Because that's what I'm doing with it."
The Age of Extinction toy train keeps on rollin' with the apparent reveal of two new Platinum Edition Sets. Is the cast excited for more "collector oriented" sets, or are we ready for some new molds?
Yep, don't know what those are, better shadow them.
Age of Extinction has now come and been in theaters for awhile. We talk about the Box Office take, success overseas, and pick up some scraps of opinions still left on the table. Join us for this post-mortem look at the latest feature film in the Transformers saga.
Give me your money or I will kill you.
Fear not lovers of the IDW universe, comic talk makes its long overdue return to the Twincast! We catch up on the post-Dark Cybertron issues of More Than Meets The Eye and Robots in Disguise. Listen in to our mid-story arc predictions and reactions to the action thus far.
This is our secret handshake too
We wrap up the show with a discussion on unofficial Transformers conventions (1:55:25), some Listener Questions (2:06:19), and some Bragging Rights (Spoiler Warning: Club's TFSS 2.0 mystery figure revealed during bragging rights) (2:21:26).
Thanks everyone for listening and we appreciate the continued support! Don't forget, the show only gets better if you tell us how. Drop us a review on iTunes or Stitcher and be sure to tell us what you love, what you hate, and what you want to hear!
Not on the show to give your take? Probably not, so don't forget to keep the discussion going on the Seibertron.com Energon Pub Forums by simply replying to this post!
Got a question for the Twincast? We take all of them, we just don't take them all seriously! Leave a question in the Ask the Twincast thread and, if it makes the cut, it may get read and answered on the show.
With only a couple of days left till Auto Assembly 2014, Europe's largest Transformers convention, we've decided to round up all the comics-based goodness that will be awaiting the people attending the event! And believe me, there are many, starting with in-house artist Ed Pirrie's special guest prints (Sobolov, McConnohie, Coleman, Spellos):
Next up are the Casey Coller and John-Paul Bove collaborations, from G1 to RID to MTMTE:
Some JP Bove-exclusive prints, featuring old-school classics in art deco style:
Two fully coloured prints with some MTMTE favourites from Joana Lafuente:
And finally, continuing previous years' streak, Nick Roche's take on MTMTE with colours by Josh Burcham:
We got a message some time ago from the lovely people behind another European Transformers convention, and with IDW's Andrew Griffith and John-Paul Bove both attending as guests - here it is on the front page! Check out below all the info you need about C.O.N.S, the German con in its sixth year running, from cosplay to vendors to features.
For the sixth time Germany's first and only Transformers fan convention is taking place. We're opening our doors on October 4, 2014, 11am at Seerosensaal, Steeger Str. 38, 41334 Nettetal - Lobberich to welcome Transformers fans from Germany, Austria, the Netherlands, England and many other parts of the world.
Last year we set a new European attendance record for a (single-day) Transformers fan convention and of course we fully intend to raise the bar once again this year.
We can already announce a long list of vendors who will offer you lots and lots of Transformers products this year. Attending for the first time: NTF-Toys. Finally the convention hosts NTF have their own shop and will, for the first time, have their own table.
Back again: Actionfiguren24.de, ADHD Toys, Lilly & Friends, Gerrut Camaro, Bram Bossers, That's Cult and many others.
We will also welcome Special Guests at C.O.N.S. VI. Two big names from the IDW comic scene, John Paul Bove and Andrew Griffith, will attend their first German Transformers fan convention this year.
And of course we will have a number of contests this year as well. Want to participate in our cosplay contest or prove your TF trivia knowledge in our Transformers quiz? You're welcome to take part. The rules and regulations for all our contests can be found at the C.O.N.S. website (http://ntf-cons.de/).
You can buy your tickets at pre-sale or on the day at the box office. If you want to book a vendor's table... well, hurry up, because we're almost booked up. More on that at the C.O.N.S. website as well.
We're looking forward to a great event with many of you attending.
IDW Publishing's collaborators on Robots in Disguise and generally awesome twosome Andrew Griffith and Livio Ramondelli will not stop travelling around the convention circuit: both artists have confirmed their presence at Fan Expo Canada, Toronto, this August 28-31st! You'll be able to find them at tables 251 and 253, and Griffith will be bringing one of his new prints too, featuring the latest additions to the IDW Transformers cast with colours by Josh Burcham - check it out below.
Just a reminder for Transformers fans that the TF Expo in Wichita, Ks is in full swing this weekend. There is cosplay contests, Bot Shots contest, a dealer room, video game lounge, Javacos custom workshop and much much more.
