Bolstered by its strong lineup of special guests and exclusive goodie bags, Auto Assembly 2009 has now set a European attendance record for a Transformers convention. The following is a press release from autoassembly.org.uk

28th July 2009 - Auto Assembly 2009 Sets a NEW European Attendance Record!!!

Yes, we've done it again and set a new attendance record for a European Transformers convention and Auto Assembly 2009 hasn't even taken place yet!! At the time of writing this, we now have 425 pre-registrants which has beaten the previous record that we set in 2008 of 423 attendees. With 17 days to go before the convention and people still booking daily, and on-the-door attendees as well, this number will continue to rise further. We want to thank all of you for helping us to break this record and hopefully we will reach the magic 500!

Battle Beasts To Return As Diamond Select Minimates?

From the area that one might consider, "out of left field", comes this looked over piece of SDCC information.

Apparently, on display with the upcoming minimates (see photos here) was a single Battle Beast, one that might remind folks of a certain Battle Beast called 'Gruesome Gator'.

Battle Beasts To Return As Diamond Select Minimates?

The biggest piece of news to come out of SDCC for Minimate collectors was the acquisition of a new license by DST. 80’s toy line Battle Beasts will be making the transition to Minimate form. An interesting aspect of this acquisition is that DST actually hold ownership of the brand rather than a licensing agreement, which opens the door to what they can do with the property. Expect to see your first Battle Beast in the previously announced Minimate Laboratory play set, due out later this year.


Battle Beasts in the U.S. were not related to Transformers except that they incorporated heat sensitive faction symbols too (wood, water, fire). Released in 1987, these rubber figurines were personified animals with weapons and armor that sided with others from their 'element'. The game you played with them was similar to rock, paper, scissors, with water beating fire, wood beating water, and fire beating wood...

Takara, the creator of these creatures, used Transformers to help promote Battle Beasts (called Beast formers in Japan) when some of these characters appeared on an episode of the G1 series Transformers Headmasters called, "Rebellion On Planet Beast". After seeing this episode, and the relationship of Transformers and Beastformers in Japan, this collector nabbed a few of his favorite warring humanimals to include in his Transformers room.

So is this something of interest to the casual Transformers fan? Probably not. But for the children of the 80's, fans of the Japanese series, and others, this may bring hope that some very unexpected things get re-imagined, and re-created. So for those fans of Visionaries, M.A.S.K., Starriors, Wheeled Warriors, Centurions, C.O.P.s., Thundercats, Silverhawks, etc., don't lose hope, it seems even some of the very niche properties may indeed be making unexpected comebacks in the least likely places.

You can see the minimate SDCC wrap up here.

UK Transformers Convention Auto Assembly has forwarded new information regarding the impending release of the last of the single day tickets available for the event. Here's what they had to share:

With Just 20 days to go before Auto Assembly 2009, we are now releasing the FINAL batch of single day tickets for those of you unable to attend for the full weekend...!

We have now released a further 45 single day passes for the Saturday and Sunday and once these have sold out, the only way you will be able to get a one-day pass will be as an on-the-door attendee and these will be sold on a first come, first served basis subject to availability. We do have plenty of full weekend passes available still and these are not subject to any restrictions on sales numbers so if you want a full weekend pass you still have time to book these, but as the convention is getting closer, you don't want to miss out...

The cut-off dates for pre-registrations are looming ever closer and for those of you living within the UK, you MUST get your bookings in by 10th August 2009 to allow us enough time to process them and post your passes out to you. If you live outside of the UK, we are recommending that you book no later than 3rd August. Any later and we can not be held responsible for delays in the postal system.

If you wish to collect your passes on the weekend itself in person, we will be looking into this for WEEKEND ATTENDEES ONLY but please contact us to discuss this.

Single day attendees will get access to the FULL convention on your chosen day including all the dealers, workshops, all the guest talks, FREE autograph sessions, our goodie bags, and everything else that weekend attendees have. However, weekend attendees gain earlier admission to the convention and have access to the exclusive Saturday evening programme with our voice actor script reading, live band and disco and the bonus Friday evening programme. Single day passes are just £25 for adults and £18 for children/concessions.

Full weekend tickets are still available and are £45 for adults and £35 for children/students/senior citizens with under 5s being FREE. Family tickets (2 adults and 2 children) are just £145 saving £15. Don't miss out on your chance to be a part of what is going to be a great weekend celebrating 25 years of the Transformers!! The convention is already about to break the European attendance record from pre-registrations alone so isn't now the time you should be a part of it?!

Finally, our main convention hotel is now FULL for the Saturday night for accommodation so we have now moved onto an overflow hotel nearby and are also investigating a THIRD for accommodation. If you are travelling and do need somewhere to stay, we can't stress the urgency now of booking sooner rather than later to get somewhere to stay as well as your ticket for the event! Hotel details will be sent with your booking confirmation. The Holiday Inn, and our overflow hotel have ample rooms for the Friday and Sunday evenings but Saturday is only available in the overflow hotel.

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.

Transformers Revenge of the Fallen star Tyrese Gibson has been hitting the Comic Con trail this weekend in San Diego California, giving attendees a chance to talk with him and promote all the new projects he's going to be involved in.

According to a report at Blast Magazine, he assured Comic Con goers that Sgt. Epps will be back for Transformers 3 and that Director Michael Bay will be at the helm once again directing the third installment to the live action franchise.

“Michael Bay, he definitely needs to take a break from (“Transformers”), understandably so, but this is the movie — the biggest movie he’s ever directed in his life,” said Gibson. “And so, he can keep producing all of these other projects, but he is officially the king of geeks.”

When asked about his part in the third film he stated this:

“I will absolutely be back,” he said, “and my part is going to be bumped up.”

TFW2005 gives us another look at more to be released Transformers from Hasbro's Booth at San Diego Comic Con '09.

Here's some pictures of Rotf Deluxe Autobot Gears, a repaint of 2007 Movie Stockade. We've seen it previously in-package.

Another figure shown was The Fallen's 'on-fire' repaint, that we first saw in Botcon '09. From the packaging, it can be assumed that the name of the figure will simply be 'The Fallen', as opposed to other Target exclusives such as 'Robo-Vision Optimus Prime' and 'Deep Space Starscream'.

DETROIT - Fans of the new Camaro and the blockbuster TRANSFORMERS movies can now combine their love of the car and the films with the Chevrolet Camaro TRANSFORMERS Special Edition announced today at Comic-Con in San Diego.

Chevrolet announces the 2010 Camaro TRANSFORMERS Special Edition

"When the first TRANSFORMERS movie was setting box office records, we had countless customers asking to purchase the 'BUMBLEBEE' Camaro," said Karen Rafferty, product marketing director, Chevrolet. "Now, they can buy one with the new Camaro TRANSFORMERS Special Edition. Streets all over North America will be buzzing in no time."

Features such as an EPA-rated 29 highway mpg on the V6-powered Camaro, Bluetooth phone connectivity, USB connectivity, XM Satellite Radio and OnStar combined with TRANSFORMERS design cues add to the car’s status as a 21st century sports car.

“Hasbro is thrilled to team up with Chevrolet and excited to see the Camaro TRANSFORMERS Special Edition come to market for our fans to enjoy,” said Samantha Lomow, Global Brand Leader for TRANSFORMERS at Hasbro. “The yellow Camaro with the black stripes has become so iconic and closely associated with the BUMBLEBEE character that this edition was a natural fit for both companies.”

While the aggressive styling of the Camaro is unmistakable, true TRANSFORMERS fans will notice some of the unique, but subtle features of the Camaro TRANSFORMERS Special Edition.

The 2010 Chevrolet Camaro TRANSFORMERS Special Edition includes the following:

* AUTOBOT® shield on the driver and passenger side panels
* AUTOBOT® shield on each of the four wheel's center cap
* AUTOBOT® shield embroidered on interior center console
* "TRANSFORMERS" logo on driver and passenger doors' sill plates
* "TRANSFORMERS" logo embedded into the hood rally stripes
* High-gloss black center rally stripe package
* Manufacturer’s suggested retail price of package: $995

Dealers are now taking orders for this car. Customers can order the TRANSFORMERS Special Edition as either a Rally Yellow LT or SS model. The optional RS appearance package can also be added.

The V6-powered Camaro uses a 3.6L engine with variable valve timing to optimize performance and fuel economy. It is SAE-certified at 304 horsepower (227 kW) and 273 lb.-ft. of torque (370 Nm). A six-speed manual transmission is standard with the 3.6L engine; a Hydra-Matic 6L50 electronically controlled six-speed automatic, with TAPshift control, is available.

The high-performance Camaro SS is equipped with a powerful 6.2L V-8, with a choice of a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission. Manual transmission-equipped models receive the LS3 engine, SAE-certified at 426 horsepower (318 kW) and 420 lb.-ft. of torque (569 Nm). It is paired with a TR6060 six-speed transmission.

A new, L99 V-8 engine is used on automatic transmission-equipped SS models. It is based on the LS3, but also includes GM’s fuel-saving Active Fuel Management feature. It is SAE-certified at 400 horsepower (298 kW) and 410 lb.-ft. of torque (556 Nm). It is matched with a Hydra-Matic 6L80 six-speed transmission that helps delivers an EPA-estimated 25 mpg on the highway.
