With only a couple of weeks left before Auto Assembly 2014, Europe's biggest Transformers convention, it's time for a catch-all post rounding up the slew of news that they have been posting in the past weeks. Starting off with two special motored guests, Barricade and Bumblebee in their replica vehicle forms from the first three movies, available for free photos all weekend; next up is a surprise official Hasbro giveaway, of which we still know very little, other than it's official, and it's from Hasbro themselves.

As well as bringing back its own bar and diner, Swerve's, Auto Assembly will be holding another charity auction during the event, with profits going to Mary's Meals.+

Lastly, but definitely not leastly (which is not a word), special guest events include an IDW Transformers: More Than Meets the Eye creator panel with writer James Roberts, artist Alex Milne and current colourist Joana Lafuente. And artist Livio Ramondelli will be hosting this year's art workshop, too.

So make sure to book your single day or weekend ticket now, and we'll see you in Birmingham on 8-10th August!

My good friend Gerard Galvin-Barrie, also known as WolfKang1 is going to be attending AA as well. You guys may or may not know, but he's a frequent TF reviewer and also posts up funny stuff on his channel such as the strange, sordid events of his everyday life chocked full of irony and funky coincidence.

Anyway, he won't be going as just a TF collector/fan. This year he and his mates will be playing the show as this year's audible entertainment. For those of you unaware, he has a band called (of all things :P) WolfKang and they will be playing AA, doing sets of songs from their recently released album, Every Now And Then as well as some classic tracks from Transformers: The Movie.

They'll have a few copies of their album for sale at the show for any of you who like what you hear.

It appears Auto Assembly 2014 is going all out for the 30th anniversary of the Transformers franchise! Not only have they broken the previous record for European attendance on pre-orders alone, have an official photographer, band, bar, fan art gallery, redesigned goodie bags, a new podcast.. they have finally revealed their officially Hasbro-licensed exclusive product: a Dinobot Band t-shirt designed by none other than IDW artist and colourist Josh Burcham! Check out more info and an image below.

Just when you thought that we’d announced everything for this year’s convention, we are proud to announce yet another exclusive for Auto Assembly 2014…

In partnership with our friends at Urban Species, we are proud to announce that this year’s convention will have a limited edition exclusive t-shirt! Available from the Urban Species table in the Dealers area of the convention, this brand new design features the Dinobots in a way that you’ve never seen them before…
