BigPete of the Nordic Transfans Association got a chance to chat with Auto Assembly co-creator Simon Plumbe, via email, recently and spoke with him about the conception of Auto Assembly and all the work that he and his partner, Sven Harvey, have put into creating one of the UK's biggest Transformers conventions.

An excerpt from the interview:

Is there a lot of money involved in a convention of this size, and did any of it come out of your own pockets?

We've been pretty lucky with Auto Assembly and every year - with the exception of Auto Assembly 2004 - has broken even and left us with some money left over which has either been reinvested back into future years or gone to our nominated charities.
In terms of home much they have cost, earlier conventions were on a fairly small budget, but this year at a rough guess it is going to cost us around £7,500 which has to come from attendees, fanzine sales, and dealer table bookings which is why we we're asking for as many people to pre-register as possible!


In the interview, Mr. Plumbe went on to speak about attendance and other issues regarding AA that has happened over the years along with one thing that was very suprising: HASBRO UK doesn't seem to want any affiliation with the convention despite numerous attempts by Sven and Simon to get them to Auto Assembly.

Recently I had the opportunity to speak with the hardworking and legendary voice actor, Corey Burton, who is renowned for his countless voices throughout the years. Burton is no stranger to Disney animations and Saturday morning cartoons, but Transformers fans remember him best in the original G1 series as Shockwave, Brawn, and Spike (to name a few). After 20 years, Burton is back with Transformers and he has teamed up with the Transformers Animated series. This time, he's doing the voices for Megatron, Ratchet, Shockwave, and Spike. You can view a list of Burton’s other roles here.



Stormrider: Lets begin where most Transformers fans are familiar with your voice - Transformers Animated (TFA). So tell us about the characters that you are doing for TFA? What are they like?

Burton: There's Megatron: Uber-Villain of the series.
Ratchet: Crusty, battle-worn Doc-Bot.
And Shockwave: Calm & collected Covert Operative/Mercenary Agent, working undercover as "Longarm".…along with assorted bit-parts, including popup "cameos" as Spike...

Long-time Transformers writer Simon Furman has put up another one of his blogs. This time the master of the penmanship reveals a few hints of the Transformers: Animated UK comics, to be released by Titan Magazines later this year. The following has been take directly from Simon Furman's blog entry.

"Been delving deeply into Transformers Animated (the new cartoon series) recently, watching a whole bunch of episodes (which I enjoyed greatly). Why? Well, the news has already broken that Titan (who already do the four-weekly UK Transformers comic) are bringing out a companion publication: Transformers Animated (UK) later this year. And I’m going to be doing some of the fully-originated lead strips. Not all, by any means, but a few here and there, kicking with issue #1’s story “Swiped!”.

No details at the moment, I’ll save that for a Script (W)rap down the line, but suffice it to say that it kicks off a whole year’s worth of TFA-UK goodness, self-contained but with that all-important arc as well, and introduces an all-new character. News on the artist for that one real soon, but I can tell you it’ll be a crowd-pleaser! And, the other bit of juicy TFA new I can share is that the bumper-sized October issue #17 (of TF-UK) features a bonus 6-page UK-original TFA story, written by me, featuring none other than the Dinobots! Well, I just HAD to write that one! Right, off to watch some more episodes. Definitely the best TF series since Beast Wars, IMO

Multi media news agency Reuters has a two page report up on their website about Hollywood Director and (Executive) Producer Steven Spielberg. The Hollywood legend is in talks with India-based movie studio conglomerate Reliance for a $1.5 billion proposal to potentially produce up to 30 movies in the next 5 years with a new independent studio.

Currently Spielberg's co-owned company of Dreamworks is still partnered with Paramount pictures for distribution, and will continue to be so for current productions until the end of the year. Presumably productions slated for after 2008 (including Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen) would then be distributed by this new studio.

Movies site ComingSoon.net has had the opportunity to talk with Transformers scriptwriters duo Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci. They talk in the interview about being involved with Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen and other projects that lie in the wake behind this movie.

"We gave them a treatment before the strike which they prepared off of, then when we came back, we started writing immediately, and back to your question about how we were able to do it. On "Transformers," we demanded to be teamed up with the amazing Ehren Kruger, who co-wrote the movie with us, so it was really the three of us just spent four months in a hotel room and we got the script in shape".

Another blog by Transformers writer Simon Furman has surfaced. The following has been taken directly from his weblog.

It's the turn of Maximum Dinobots #1 for the post-script analysis. As usual, expect teases rather than spoilers, but be warned: if you'd rather be flat out surprised when October rolls around, read no more. What'll come as no great surprise to pretty much anyone who's been following the IDW/TF-verse is that Maximum Dinobots #1 picks up pretty much where Spotlight Grimlock left off. You don't have to have read Spotlight Grimlock, as there's a handy recap of all Grimlock/Dinobot related events leading up to this point in the story, but it wouldn't hurt to seek it out (or at least pick up vol 3 of the Spotlight TPBs when it comes out). Many elements come together for Maximum Dinobots, including Scorponok, the Machination, Headmasters, the Sunstreaker/Hunter combo, Hot Rod, Skywatch and, of course, the Dynobots/Dinobots themselves. Oh, and there are a few other characters/elements from previous stories also in the mix, but I'm not saying right now. And, as if that wasn't enough, three more characters make their IDW debut (though not in #1). Anyhow, last we saw Grimlock he was stranded under a glacier in New Zealand. Events (and characters) conspire to bring him back right into the thick of things, as part of a Machination plot to… well, you'll see. But suffice it to say for those of you craving Dinobot on Dinobot action (how wrong does that sound?!) you won't be disappointed. Massive destruction and carnage on an unprecedented scale is the order of the day. This first issue takes its perspective, much as the second half of Spotlight Grimlock did, from Grimlock himself, and I aim to give each Dinobot their quote-unquote “spotlight” during the course of the series. Despite the number of plot lines coming to a head (and a conclusion) in this and subsequent issues, issue #1 is actually a great jumping on point, especially if you can't get enough Dino! The five-part story is very much self-contained in and of itself. Art is by Nick Roche, which is great for several reasons. First, because I love Nick's oh-so-expressive art. Second, because he drew the Dynobots original appearance in Spotlight Shockwave. And three, because I knew going in to the script he was going to be drawing it, so could tailor it to his many strengths. Maximum Dinobots kicks off in October.

Simon Furman, the writer of IDW Publishing's Transformers Comics Infiltration, Escalation and Devastation has updated his blog with a Script Wrap for the soon to be released Spotlight: Cyclonus, part 1 of 4 of the upcoming "Revelation" Saga.

Those of you who’ve been following the brooding, bubbling under subplot concerning Nova/Nemesis Prime and the Dead Universe are about to be hit by the raging hurricane that is Revelation. But, as well as being part 1 of 4, it’s also a Spotlight, and the character focus falls, first and foremost, on Cyclonus. But who is IDW/TF-verse Cyclonus?

Furman has much more to say on the plot of Spotlight Cyclonus, and it contains spoilers, so consider yourselves warned. To finish reading his blog, please click here.

In related Furman news, that should mainly interest UK fans, Furman will be attending the "Dads and Lads" evening event at the Bromsgrove library on Wednesday the 18th of June 2008. For more information, check out Furman's Blog.
