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

Eight Weeks Until Auto Assembly 2010...

If you haven't already bought your ticket yet, there are now just under eight weeks to go until Europe's largest Transformers convention, Auto Assembly 2010 and tickets are selling FAST!!

This year is going to be bigger and better than ever with our most exciting programme of activities and guests yet. The convention is taking place between Friday 13th - Sunday 15th August 2010 at the The Holiday Inn Birmingham City Centre, Birmingham, England.

As always it will be a packed weekend featuring guest panels, toy and art displays, dealers, comic guests, free autograph sessions, our new Game Zone showcasing 25 years of Transformers video games from the first ever game released for the Commodore 64 right up to War For Cybertron with almost every game being playable over the weekend, 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!), musical performances by Scott McNeil and Garry Chalk, costume competition, and 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...!

We believe that this is our best guest line-up ever for Auto Assembly. We have three guests of honour for the convention - Garry Chalk, Scott McNeil and Derrick J Wyatt 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. Most of our comic guests will also be sketching for attendees.

Because of the venue size, we are restricting attendance to a MAXIMUM of 550 people at the convention per day which will 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 just under 400 pre-registrants! With an estimated total allowance of 625, and us about to enter our bookings "rush period", you need to book sooner rather than later to avoid disappointment!

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 and start from just £18 but these are selling fast and we now only have TWENTY Saturday tickets remaining. If you can't make it, we have our excellent Non-Attendee Pack with prices starting from £70!

For those of you planning on attending from outside the UK, it's a lot cheaper than you might think... with the current state of the pound, many currencies are faring quite well at the moment and flights to the UK are not too expensive. For example, if you are travelling from the USA, you could cover your flight, registration AND hotel accommodation for under $1,500!!

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

We hope to see you all in August 2010.

Thanks to tips from valued members Albershide and ConBotFormer, we now have news about the latest TF3 filming location: Milwaukee.

The following is an excerpt of an article from

Rumors have abounded recently and now it's official. Director Michael Bay and producers Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Ian Bryce are bringing a cast and crew -- about 150 all told -- to film a scene from the new "Transformers 3" at the Milwaukee Art Museum on July 12.

A casting call will be held Saturday, June 26, 10 a.m.-3:30 p.m., at the Hilton Milwaukee City Center in the Wright Ballroom on the fourth floor. If you're a female or male "trendy executive type," 18 or over, you're invited to show up (with a pen, please).

"We're really excited to showcase the Art Museum in what will be one of the most anticipated blockbuster films for next summer," said Milwaukee Art Museum Director Dan Keegan.

"The film will give the venue worldwide exposure during our 10th year anniversary celebration of the Santiago Calatrava designed Quadracci Pavilion."

An oddity hits the Transformers fanbase, as revealed by Cybertron Phillipines. It seems that the Transformers Autobot Alliance Release Party will feature two exclusives. One we already know, that's Alternity Ultra Magnus. The other is a Sons of Cybertron set, but this one's much different from the other Animated Sons of Cybertron set. While the names of the toys inside are the same, this one features Classic Deluxe figures instead of Animated ones. Check out the images below!

The 10th anniversary t-shirts are selling very well. 25% of the total stock was sold this past week which has kept me extremely busy, not to mention all of my other eBay auctions that I've been doing this month (126 items sold total in past 31 days). Try doing that and keeping up with an onslaught of Transformers toy galleries.

The shirts that are currently available on eBay will only be available until Monday, June 21st. I modified the auctions so that they would require people to pay immediately upon checkout so that I can make sure your shirts get ASAP.

An assortment of shirts in all available sizes will be available in limited quantities at BotCon. If you're attending BotCon, find me ASAP in order to get your shirt. I'll be available to sell you a shirt in person at BotCon starting Tuesday night. Here are the prices for shirts at BotCon:

$20 - 12M, 18M, 2T, YL, S, M, L, XL
$21 - 2XL, 3XL
$22 - 4XL

Before anyone asks, the toddler shirts actually cost me more to have made than the adult sizes because of the limited quantities.

Once I get back from BotCon, I'll update the quantities on eBay accordingly.

If you're thinking about buying a shirt and you're size is still available on eBay, I highly recommend that you buy your shirt now to make sure you get one. If you have any questions or comments, please post them here in this thread or email me at

Transformers Generation 2 in Review

With BotCon 2010 breathing new life into Transformers Generation 2, I wanted to take a moment to revisit the original G2 and lay out some background information for many people coming to BotCon this year who may not have been around during the G2 days.

Generation 2 was launched in America in 1993. I remember it well. Having been born in 1983, and gotten into Transformers shortly after the '86 animated movie came out, I had been sad to see them go. Also, I had gotten into Transformers too late to have G1 figures of Optimus Prime, the Seekers, the Autobot cars, etc.

G2 contained many G1 molds in new colors, such as

Optimus Prime (now with a black trailer)
Jazz (who sports, for the most part, his G1 colors)
Sideswipe (now black instead of red)
Inferno (with a new watergun)
Autobot Minicars (Bumblebee, Seaspray, Hubcap, and Beachcomber) with chrome paint
Grimlock (blue, and later turquoise)
Slag (green, and later red)
Snarl (red, and later green)

Aerialbots (new color schemes, some more offensive than others. Air Raid and Skydive look good, but Slingshot is gold, and don't get me started on the blue and orange Silverbolt)
Ramjet (in black, purple, and a touch of teal)
Constructicons (in yellow, and later orange)
Combaticons (featuring camo paint jobs in a variety of colors)


Additionally, G2 offered up many new characters and designs. With the inability to rerelease Megatron as a gun, a new figure had to be made. The green tank Megatron was an impressive figure, despite being a brick.


Other G2 originals included Rapido, Skram, Windbreaker, and Turbofire. These four Autobot cars had simple but fun transformations and chromed weaponry that became the engine block in alt mode. It is interesting to note that while Rapido was mostly red with teal as a secondary color, the inverse is true of Turbofire. Also, the same is true of Skram and Windbreaker's blue and orange schemes. This habit of complimentary color schemes was common in G2 figures.

Opposing Rapido and his friends were four small Decepticon jets named Afterburner, Terradive, Windrazor, and Eage Eye.

G2 also gave us...

Color Changers (Autobots Drench and Gobots, Decepticons Deluge and Jetstorm) - Portions of the toy would change color under warm water. Each figure was armed with a small watergun.

Rotor Force - Transformers whose spring-loaded weapon fired a spinning rotor. These included Leadfoot, Manta Ray, Powerdive, and Ransack.

Laser Rods - Transformers with light-up swords and engines! And BALL JOINTS. Electro, Jolt, Sizzle, and Volt may have been funky colors, but they were hot rod cars anyway.

Laser Rod Optimus Prime. Your collection is incomplete without him.




A few smaller figures (Go Bots, Cyberjets, Laser Cycles).

Combat Hero Optimus Prime & Combat Hero Megatron with big air-powered missile launchers.

Dreadwing and Smokescreen, an impressive stealth jet and smaller plane, sporting a huge gatling gun that fired six missiles, three more missiles on each wing (with a button on top to deploy them), and two spring-loaded rifles.

European exclusive Obliterators Spark and Colossus, using molds that had been available in Europe as G1 figures named Pyro and Clench after the end of North American G1.

Generation 2 also had a comic series in the US as well as the UK. The 12-issue Marvel (US) series was written by Simon Furman and showcased several very talented artists. Derek Yaniger did great work on the covers, and many will recall Geoff Senior's work, as well as that of other artists, on the interior pages.



Generation 2 featured cgi animation in its toy commercials, during a time when cgi was still very uncommon. The likes of Reboot and Beast Wars were still several years away. The only TV series G2 offered was merely G1 episodes being re-aired with a new cgi title sequence, and a cgi-animated "Cybercube" replacing the flipping faction symbols for scene transitions.

Well folks, I hope this has been eye-opening for you. It's been fun for me to revisit. See you at BotCon!

Looks like it’s about that time…

For the third year running, yours truly and are going to be hosting the BotCon Friday night party starting at 7:30 at the Dolphin Hotel Cabana Bar and Beach Club on Friday the 25th.

You can check it out here:

Everyone is welcome whether you’re a long time poster, a casual news junkie, or the quietest of lurkers.

Come out and meet your fellow Seibertronians.

+Level up those forum conversations with the eternal power of beer.

+Win the annual prize for “First person to punch CP in the face at this year’s Botcon!” (your experience may vary)

+There will be NO PRIZES for throwing Seibertron Staff members into the pool. However, please note that it will be awesome. (especially if they are Canadian and happened to go by “Mkall”)

+Most importantly, come out and get to know the people and friends you converse with every day yet rarely have the opportunity to interact with.

We’ve worked with the Dolphin Hotel and Cabana Bar to ensure that seating is available for this event. The bar itself holds approximately 100 or more people (so unlike last year, the hotel bar won’t qualify as a Mini-Con of Libation Dealers).

This is always a great event and though it is (now) my responsibility to ensure it happens each year, many of my best memories of Botcons past come from these unofficial events.

Please note that this is an outside establishment and should Florida weather reveal itself to be a hassle for getting everyone together, we will look to move the event indoors. Unlikely though that is, I just thought I would mention it.

Contact me personally through PM or through email at if you have any questions.

See ya in a week.
