And here it is! The brochure for the 2010 Botcon in Orlando, Florida is now live! You can check it out here.

Important information, including the cast of the five figure Convention box set has been revealed. Set cost is $305 for club members, $375 for non-members.

At Botcon 2010, an Autobot will step forward to lead this NEW Generation! The Autobot SPARK, as he is called by the closest to him, was the first in this new Generation. Alongside SPARK is the Protectobot STREETWISE who doesn't know when to quit. He has definitely received an upgrade from Generation 1 including an all new color scheme!

Not to be outdone, the Decepticons have their own "next generation" as well led by CLENCH, a con with an outlaw attitude, and with Stunticon help from the always suspicious BREAKDOWN. The Decepticons are ready to take the war to a whole new level! And now, they have found just the robot to help them do it!

The Predacon General SKYBYTE has discovered a way to refine a mysterious substance known as Forestonite. By itself, the substance is harmless. But SKYBYTE has found a way to manipulate its properties, and the Decepticons are all to eager to use it on... themselves? What does this substance do and what effects will it have on Transformers? All will be revealed this summer at Botcon 2010.

Don't miss out on the all-new 2010 convention set Generation 2 - Redux!

We'd like to thank Simon Plumbe, organizer of Auto Assembly 2010 for sending us the following press release.

Europe's largest Transformers convention, Auto Assembly, has already confirmed ten guests for Auto Assembly 2010 including two guests of honour but we are now able to end months of speculation and confirm the identity of our third and final guest of honour and the second voice actor who is attending this year's convention...

The actor is... well, you're going to have to visit our channel on Youtube and watch the latest episode of our news videos to find out for yourself here - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7M0TCTNxPqs



After watching the video, we're sure you'll all agree that Auto Assembly 2010 has the biggest and best guest line-up ever for Auto Assembly. Prior to this announcement, we already had two guests of honour confirmed (Garry Chalk and Derrick J Wayatt) and no less than 8 comic guests (Simon Furman, Nick Roche, Guido Guidi, Simon Williams, Liam Shalloo, Kris Carter, Jason Cardy and Kat Nicholson) and all our guests will be signing autographs and available to meet fans all weekend and each will take to the stage for a Q&A session during the convention.

The convention is taking place between Friday 13th - Sunday 15th August 2010 at the The Holiday Inn Birmingham City Centre, Birmingham, England. It will be a packed weekend featuring toy and art displays, dealers, comic guests, free autograph sessions, a video games area, free workshops run by many of our guests, dedicated childrens programming, video screenings and so much more to be announced! There will also be Friday and Saturday evening programmes, exclusive for weekend attendees and the Saturday evening will play host to a party, a concert by rock band Next Of Kin (including a Transformers themed set with music from the 1986 animated movie!), costume competition, our voice actors will take to the stage to perform a BRAND NEW script written by Simon Furman and we have a few more surprises in store...!

Because of the venue size, we are restricting attendance to a MAXIMUM of 550 people at the convention per day which can be made up of a combination of weekend and one-day attendees and once we hit that total we will be closing registrations so if you want to attend Europe's largest Transformers convention, you need to hurry and get your tickets now as we have already had over 230 pre-registrants with over 4 months to go!

Despite our running costs increasing for this year, we have frozen ticket prices from Auto Assembly 2009 and they are £45 for adults and £35 for children, students and senior citizens, with under 5s admitted free. Family tickets (2 adults and 2 children) are available for £145. Single day passes are available at reduced rates but these are VERY limited.

For more details on the convention, to see a full list of all the guests and activities taking place over the weekend, or to book your tickets, visit the website at http://www.autoassembly.org.uk

We hope to see you all in August 2010.

Seibertron.com member Lawless has posted in-hand photos of the C.O.N.S. convention exclusive Headrobots COBRA head.

C.O.N.S. is a German Transformers fan-convention and is currently in preparation for their 2nd convention.

This version of the Headrobots COBRA is limited to 50 pieces and will only be available at the event. This is the color scheme originally shown with the toy, as opposed to what it was painted like for mass release, and it will include exclusive packaging as well. This 3rd party product is made using original unused/unproduced designs for G1 headmaster heads, as closely represented as possible by the company.

The convention is slated to be held at 25th of July 2010.

If you don't like Generation Two, then please don't Breakdown! In all actuality, we are getting G2 Breakdown at this year's Botcon, from the Universe Sideswipe/Sunstreaker mold. The Botcon website has been updated with the first Decepticon of this year's convention, and it is this teal and pink racer.

Generation 2 Breakdown, based on the tooling from the Universe line and featuring an all-new head sculpt!

As most of you will remember, Seibertron.com recently had a chance to conduct an exclusive interview with Simon Plumbe, organizer of Auto Assembly 2010, Europe's largest annual Transformers convention. During that interview, he made two very special announcements right here first; the availability of single day passes and the identity of the latest special guest. However, Auto Assembly 2010 has now issued the following press releases chock full of additional information.

After countless requests from people wanting to register for Auto Assembly 2010, we have finally released our limited allocation of single day passes for Auto Assembly 2010! Following the success of Auto Assembly 2009 where we set a new European attendance record for a Transformers convention of 501, bookings have been coming in at an astonishing rate for 2010. By 14th March 2010 we were already up to 182 - up from 116 at the same point last year so we are on target to not only shatter this record again but we are quite possibly looking at the convention being a total sell-out!

We are now releasing a limited number of single day tickets for the Saturday and Sunday to enable those of you who can't join us for the full weekend to be able to experience Auto Assembly 2010. We are releasing just 75 tickets for each day and once these have been sold, there will be no more released!

Single day attendees will have the same access to the convention that full weekend attendees do - all the guest panels, dealers, workshops, autograph sessions, activities, and will still get the free goodie bags so you will be able to experience everything that Auto Assembly 2010 has to offer. The only things that you won't have access to is the Friday evening programme, the Saturday night party (which will have the performance by Next Of Kin, the script reading, our cosplay show and more) and there is a possibility that weekend attendees may gain early access to the convention each day.

Details of the programme, and what activities and panels will be taking place on each day can be found on the Auto Assembly website so you can choose what day is best for you. All of our guests are joining us for the full weekend and will be signing all weekend, but will only be on stage for a panel discussion ONCE so if you want to see all the Q&A sessions, then you need to attend for the full weekend!

Because of the venue size, we are restricted to a MAXIMUM of 550 people at the convention per day which can be made up of a combination of weekend and one-day attendees and once we hit that total we will be closing registrations so if you want to attend Europe's largest Transformers convention, hurry and get your tickets now!

We have frozen the prices on these from Auto Assembly 2009 and the one day tickets for either day cost £25 for adults, £18 for children, students or senior citizens and under 5's as always are free. However as they are limited, if you want to come along for just the day then you need to book NOW! Because of the rate that bookings are coming in, and the popularity of the one-day passes last year, we cannot guarantee that single day tickets will be available to purchase on the door.

Full weekend tickets are also on sale through the website for £45 for adults and £35 for children, students and senior citizens, with under 5s admitted free. Family tickets (2 adults and 2 children) are available for £145.

The convention is celebrating 10 years of Auto Assembly events and will be taking place between Friday 13th - Sunday 15th August 2010 at the The Holiday Inn Birmingham City Centre, Birmingham, England. There will be AT LEAST eleven guests including three guests of honour (Garry Chalk and Derrick J Wyatt are already confirmed), a massive Saturday evening programme with a party, live band, costume competition and more, toy and art displays, dealers, comic guests, free autograph sessions, a video games area, free workshops, dedicated childrens programming, video screenings and so much more to be announced!

For more details on the convention, to see a full list of all the guests and activities taking place over the weekend, or to book your tickets, visit the website at http://www.autoassembly.org.uk

We hope to see you all in August 2010.

Beyond that exciting news, AA 2010 will also feature the return of special guest Nick Roche!

People have been asking us to bring him back since his debut last year and we are now pleased to announce that IDW artist / writer Nick Roche will be making a welcome return to Auto Assembly 2010 joining our extensive line-up of guests bringing the total to ten!

Nick will be with us for the whole weekend and will be signing autographs and sketching for attendees all weekend and as well as this he will be joining all of our other comic guests on stage for a Q&A session on the Saturday and running a rather special workshop on the Sunday and - as he did last year - he will be joining our voice actors on stage on the Saturday evening taking part in our script reading. So if you want to see everything that Nick will be involved with at the convention, you will need to be with us for the full weekend.

To see the official announcement, and to see the latest episode of the Auto Assembly News Update where you can find out the latest updates on the convention, click here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fNYBqMMNuYI

Tickets are selling well for the convention and are £45 for adults and £35 for children, students and senior citizens, with under 5s admitted free. Family tickets (2 adults and 2 children) are available for £145. Reduced prices are available for the one day passes although these are limited.

Nick joins an extensive line-up off guests including Garry Chalk, Derrick J Wyatt, Simon Furman, Guido Guidi and a host of UK comic guests and the convention will be taking place between Friday 13th - Sunday 15th August 2010 at the The Holiday Inn Birmingham City Centre, Birmingham, England. There will be a massive Saturday evening programme with a party, live band, costume competition and more, and during the whole weekend there will be a toy and art displays, dealers, comic guests, free autograph sessions, a video games area charting 25 years of Transformers games, free workshops, dedicated childrens programming, video screenings and so much more to be announced!

For more details on the convention, to see a full list of all the guests and activities taking place over the weekend, or to book your tickets, visit the website at http://www.autoassembly.org.uk

We hope to see you all in August 2010.

Thanks to our member Desastron we now know that the German fan convention C.O.N.S. 2010 will have an exclusive figure.
The figure's name is "Cobra" and is a repaint of the Headrobots Cobra Headmaster, this exclusive version will come in an exclusive collector's box with numbered certificate and a bio.

This is the packaging art and bio:
Image

As the bio is in German we have translated it for you:
Cobra bio wrote:Cobra has always liked the darkness. In snake-mode he creeps up to his enemy without being seen. Advanced heat sensors and sense of touch allow him to hunt even in absolute darkness. Once his prey notices what's happening to him, unless the pitiful Mech somehow manages to escape Cobra's venomous bite which imminently deactivates the enemies electric nervous system, it's already too late.
Even if his prey should escape Cobra can still transform into Head-mode and fuse with it's body to become an even deadlier hunter.


Final toy images are coming soon.
