Simon Plumbe, organizer of Auto Assembly, dropped by to let us know of an exciting promotion for the upcoming convention this August. In cooperation with IDW, Auto Assembly 2010 will feature a brand new cover to Transformers Ongoing #9, featuring Nick Roche's artwork and colors by Liam Shalloo. See a sample of the cover below, and read the full press release after!
Things may have been quiet for a couple of weeks for Auto Assembly apart from a few small announcements through our website. We have been busy behind the scenes continuing to work on processing bookings, preparing for the launch of our Non-Attendee Package and working on the first of this year's convention exclusives which we are now proud to announce...
Following the success last year of our convention exclusive comic, we are once again working with IDW Publishing and we will have another convention exclusive variant cover of a forthcoming Transformers book from IDW. This year, we are working with Transformers dealer Toyz And Gamez (http://www.toyzandgamez.co.uk) who are helping to make the comic a reality. The book is going to be Issue 9 of IDW's ongoing Transformers comic and our convention edition will feature a new cover with artwork from Nick Roche and colours by Liam Shalloo, both of whom will be in attendance at Auto Assembly 2010, as will the comic's main artist Guido Guidi!
The comic will be on sale all weekend from the Toyz And Gamez table and will also be part of the Non-Attendee Package which will be on sale shortly. If copies remain after the event, the comic will also be sold online afterwards.
Visit the Auto Assembly website now at http://www.autoassembly.org.uk to see a preview of the cover or to book your tickets for the convention or learn more about the event which is already shaping up to be the biggest Transformers convention that Europe has ever seen!
Spanning the weekend of Friday 13th - Sunday 15th August 2010 at the The Holiday Inn Birmingham City Centre, Birmingham, England, the convention is playing host to a staggering 11 guests including three guests of honour (Garry Chalk, Scott McNeill and Derrick J Wyatt), and will feature 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 still have a few more surprises in store...!

Seibertron.com has managed to give Transformers collectors a glimpse on the upcoming War For Cybertron toys including Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Megatron, and Soundwave. These figures are based off of the characters featured in the Transformers: War for Cybertron video game from Activision. More information about the game will be revealed later this week.

The good folks over at TFcon dropped us a line to let us know that another guest has been announced this year - Fan Favorite Voice Actor David Kaye!
If you're one of the few Transformers fans to not watch any Tranformers Cartoons in the last decade you might not know who this gentleman is. Well let me lay it out for you like this: Mr. Kaye is one of two voice actors to voice both Optimus Prime & Megatron! He has been the voice of the very recognizable and tyrannical Predicon & Decepticon Leader Megatron from Beast Wars, Beast Machines and the Unicron Trilogy. He has also recently captured fans all over again as the voice of the heroic Autobot Leader Optimus Prime in Transformers Animated, not to mention many other characters in the series. Mr. Kaye will be part of a Q&A panel, treating fans to a live script reading and, an autograph session.
David Kaye will be in attendance for TFcon 2010 July 17th and 18th in Toronto. Special guests include Mark Ryan - voice of Transformers Movie Bumblebee and ROTF Jetfire, Hasbro Canada and artist Dan Khanna with more TBA. You can also join TFcon on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube. Pre-orders are now open for the TFcon 2010 exclusive figure Night-bird limited to 1000 pieces.

The Iacon Packages (non-attending) are now available as well as a limited number of loose add-on sets.
We do reserve the right to limit orders to what we think is reasonable.
After your order is reviewed and approved by a staff member, you will receive a confirmation email.
The paper order forms will go online a little later today, these must be in our office no later than 5PM on June 11th.
There is a very limited number of Primus Packages (attending) left so if you are planning to go to BotCon, you need to register now!
The cutoff for registrations will be June 11th (unless we sell out before then). After that date, anything that is available will be on a first come, first served basis at late registration Friday morning June 25, 9:30 am at the WDW Dolphin Resort.
For those who aren't planning to attend BotCon this year, but want the Boxed Set anyway, the Iacon Package is right up your alley. Registration for this non-attending package has been delayed while the online registration system dealt with attending registrations. Today, Brian Savage sent out an update to Club Members, letting everyone know that they are now finishing up preparations for the online non-attending registration, with plans to have it online early next week.
Brian Savage wrote:Hello all! I know some of you are patiently waiting on the Non-Attending registration to be released. There are still a couple of issues we are cleaning up with the registration site and we are now planning to wait until early next week to post the Iacon registrations.
Have a great holiday weekend and I'll send out an update next Tuesday.
Thanks for your support!
