Auto Assembly creator Simon Plumbe has sent out another update regarding pre-registration and tickets for the fast approaching event. Here's what he had to say:

Hi all,

With under four weeks to go, it’s time for an update for those of you planning on attending Auto Assembly 2008 from outside of the UK…

It’s a natural habit of Transformers fans all over the globe to leave booking places for conventions until the last minute and it happens with Auto Assembly EVERY year with over 25% of our attendees booking in the last TWO WEEKS! However, we want to remind all of you that - because we send out confirmation packs to all of you who pre-book that you MUST bring with you on the day to ensure that you gain admission to the convention you need to allow enough time for these packs to get to you!

We do anticipate that we will have plenty of spaces available on the day although we have been told that there will be more coverage from the BBC on their local radio in the run up to the convention so we are still recommending pre-booking. Not to mention the fact that we are going to be operating a “fast track” check-in that will allow those of you arriving on Friday to pick up your packs a day early and get in as soon as the doors open on Saturday… but we’ll tell you more about that another time!

UK Attendees

For those of you pre-registering from within the UK, we would ask that you ensure that your bookings reach us by Sunday 27th July 2008 at the ABSOLUTE latest. This will give us enough time to process your bookings and get your packs sent out to you by first class post on 28th or 29th July at the latest.

International Attendees

To give us the best chance of ensuring that your packs reach you in time for the convention, we would ask that you get your pre-bookings into us by Sunday 20th July 2008. Confirmation packs will be sent out to you by airmail by 21st or 22nd July at the latest which should allow enough time for them to reach you.

We will not be held responsible for confirmation packs not delivered for bookings received after these dates although we will endeavour to process all bookings in time for the convention.

New Goodie Bag Item!

Yes, we have another item confirmed for the goodie bag! This year we are pleased to confirm that we will be giving away not one, not two, but THREE exclusive Auto Assembly postcards! They will be featuring artwork from Simon Williams, Mike Collins and Lee Sullivan!

The original artwork from all three will be available in the charity auction and all three will also be appearing on our convention exclusive keyrings which will be on sale on the Registration Desk for just £1.50 each!

Well, that’s it for this mini-update, but we should have a few more announcements soon so keep an eye out on all the major TF websites and forums and we hope to see a lot of you all on 2nd August!

As always, for all the latest information on Auto Assembly 2008, to book online or to download booking forms or for more information on anything in this update, visit the website at http://www.autoassembly.org.uk

Auto Assembly's Simon Plumbe Interview

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.

A GI Joe collector reporting after the just completed Joecon:

"- When asked about the date for next year's con, Brian [Savage] stated it was not set yet, but would likely take place right before the movie. The same goes for next year's Transformers Botcon and that both conventions would likely be about 6 weeks apart from one another. "

Taken from http://toynewsi.com/news.php?catid=9&itemid=13145

With the movie scheduled for June 26th, 2009, according to the information we could expect Botcon to be scheduled very close to that opening weekend, perhaps the weekend before. Not a surprise to many I am sure.

Where, and the exact when are still an unknown at this time.
