Auto Assembly 2009 is a non-profit making convention for fans of Transformers and is being held on 15th - 16th August 2009 at the Holiday Inn Birmingham City Centre, Birmingham, England.
Australian TF Fan site OzFormers has posted a complete report of all the happenings that occurred at the 2009 Australian Toy Fair. Held in Melbourne, the report shows the Revenge of the Fallen toyline along with other ongoing TF lines such as TF Universe and Animated.

User Linthart at http://www.otca.com.au is currently attending the 2009 Toy Hobby & Nursery Fair in Melbourne, Australia and has snapped some photos of the pacakging for the Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen Leader-Class Jetfire, which was on display during the Toyfair.
The images are quite large so users with a slower connection be warned. Some have been shrunken down and mirrored here for easy viewing.
The packaging also confirms that Optimus Prime does indeed combine with Jetfire, but the image of the combined mode has been blacked out.
The CyberGundam blog has posted images straight from the Tokyo Anime Fair, which was today. Takara Tomy showcased a good deal of upcoming product there, from Henkei to Masterpiece to even Chorno Label! To view all the images, please click here.
Also, I've been holding off announcing this, but "The Touch" is going to be in Guitar Hero! Activision will be releasing it as a free download. I'll contact Activision this week to find out the release date and let you know.
Hasbro is releasing two new TF2 toys in May containing "The Touch"! It looks like I'll be performing at BOTCON 09 here in L.A. on May 30th with my band. (I should get confirmation this week.) Also, I'll be appearing/ performing at JACON (Japanese Anime Convention) in Orlando Memorial Day weekend (May 22-23).
Lastly, we're just finishing up a totally new, killer version of "The Touch" which we'll be submitting for Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen. I'll send you an MP3 as soon as it's done.
An update from our friends to the north has just been sent out informing us that Transformers artist and overall great guy Alex Milne will be in attendance at the convention.
He will be setup all weekend in the dealer room signing comic books, as well as doing sketches and offering prints on both April 25th and 26th, according to the update.

Seibertron.com received the following message from Hasbro's PR firm, Hunter PR. They're looking for a couple of fans that appeared at San Diego Comic Con last year. If you know how we can get a hold of them, please reply to this post so that we can forward your information along to Hasbro.
I’m reaching out to you – the Transformers fan and collectors community – on behalf of Hasbro’s Transformers brand team in hope that you may be able to assist with a somewhat unusual request.
At this past year’s Comic-Con in San Diego, there were two costumed fans in attendance dressed in homemade Transformers movie character costumes – Optimus Prime and Bumblebee. We would like to contact these individuals re: the upcoming ‘09 BotCon in Pasadena. Without knowing their names, we’re obviously having trouble reaching these two fans. And while I know there were many costumed Transformers fans in attendance, I’m told that these two individuals really stuck out, because each of these movie character costumes were very, very good – including metals components, etc.
Would you happen to know either of these fans? If so, please share their name and/or contact info.
