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.

Slashfilm.com and the Transformers Live Action Movie Blog are reporting that Paramount has opted out of the San Diego Comic-Con (July 23rd-27th) and will not be promoting anything from Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, the upcoming sequel to the 2007 Transformers movie, scheduled for June 26th 2009.

TFormers is reporting new details about the Transformers Alternity line, which they gathered at the International Tokyo Toy Show 2008 from the TakaraTomy booth.

You can view the original article here.

1) The Alternity is a different series from Binaltech.

2) The size is 1/32 scale so it can easily fit on any desktop thus the size is slightly larger than deluxe size figures.

3) The pricing scheme was based on today's cost of the various materials used (die-cast, plastic etc).

4) There are two colors of the car because the silver was used to represent a real NISSAN GT-R color that is only available now and the red was chosen specifically because it is a Convoy.

5) When transformed, the rear seats becomes the feet, the front seats when folded down becomes part of the armor surrounding the arms and the roof and the front grill have a spring action mechanism. The video demonstrates the spring action mechanism where the front grill is divided into three pieces: right, left and center. The right and left sides encloses the center piece.

6) Because the license is heavily under the supervision of NISSAN, Takara Tomy would like sales schedule to start in November but it may be delayed to the end of the year.

7) Other Observations: The design of the head is similar to Nike and Fire Convoy

SDCC has updated their website with more information and pictures for the exclusive Skywarp and Nemesis Prime figures.

Classics Nemesis Prime
“This lowly warrior was reconstructed to be the very image of OPTIMUS PRIME. This NEMESIS PRIME figure has the shape of the mighty AUTOBOT leader, but his gray and black deco makes this figure unique. TRANSFORMERS VOYAGER CLASS figure changes from robot-mode to vehicle-mode and back again. Figure wields a wind vane that becomes an ion blaster, and a smokestack that becomes a laser cannon in robot mode! This HasbroToyShop.com exclusive launches at San Diego Comic-Con 2008!”






Titanium Skywarp
"This authority-indifferent seeker is now part of the Transformers Titanium Series brand. Standing 6" tall, this incredible figure includes display stand and case. Awesome detailed die-cast metal. TRANSFORMERS figure changes from robot-mode to vehicle-mode and back again. This HasbroToyShop.com exclusive launches at San Diego Comic-Con 2008!"

Today was TFCon 2008 in Toronto, Canada, which was Canada's 7th Annual Transformers Convention. Our fellow Seibertronian and Seibertron.com New Crew member Down_Shift was there to help cover the events from today. He sent me several text messages highlighting some items from the show today and said that he has a lot of pictures which he'll be sharing with us in the next couple of days. To tie you guys over, here's what he said via text message earlier today:

"Hey boss, Fan projects are here at tfcon and they are showing the magnus upgrade kit with a TFCon exclusive Powered Convoy (Diaclone colors). There's also a new Alternators Prime kit too. Gas can become G1 ion blaster and new rad support becomes matrix chamber and matrix. Lots of pictures! I just took so many up close pictures of Universe Ironhide and his weapon. You fold his hand back to attach his weapon to his wrist."

I'll be sure to share his pictures with all of you as soon as I get them!
