We’re more than a little enthusiastic to announce that we are going to be joined this year by the entire creative team behind Regeneration One! Yes, once again writer Simon Furman, artist Andrew Wildman, inker Stephen Baskerville and colourist John-Paul Bove will all be in attendance along with cover colourist Jason Cardy who will be in our new Artists Alley that we have introduced for Auto Assembly 2014 and not only will they be around throughout the convention to meet fans, sign autographs and sketch for all of you (although we’re not too sure how many of you would be asking Simon Furman for sketches!), all five of them will be taking to the stage for a special Regeneration One themed panel.
As you can imagine with Regeneration One coming to a close, this is going to be a fantastic opportunity to celebrate with us what has been a rollercoaster ride as the team close a monumental comic series.
We’re always on the lookout for new ideas to introduce to the convention here at Auto Assembly, especially this year as we celebrate 30 years of Transformers so starting with Auto Assembly 2014 we are pleased to present the launch of Auto Assembly’s brand new Artists Alley…
As you’d expect, this is a new area we are setting aside at the convention to allow artists to showcase their work, sell original artwork, sketch for attendees and more but for this year we’re doing something rather special as the area is going to be a special All-Star Artists Alley! This year it is going to be playing host to nothing but professional comic artists who will be selling some of their original work, other projects they are involved with and, of course, sketching throughout the convention weekend.

[quote]We’ve been keeping this one under wraps for a while, but after a two year gap we’re incredibly excited to announce that once again we’re bringing you all a convention exclusive lithograph for Auto Assembly 2014 as we celebrate 30 years of Transformers and best of all, we’re giving this litho print away absolutely FREE!
This is an absolutely stunning limited edition A2 sized print and features a wide range of characters from the last 30 years of Transformers and has been illustrated by Auto Assembly in-house artist and AA2014 guest Ed Pirrie. The litho is limited to a print run of just 1,250 copies and will not be available from anywhere else apart from Auto Assembly 2014 so if you want to get your hands on this great piece of artwork, then you will have to be at this year’s convention!![/quote]

Writer and artist extraordinaire, Nick made his mark with the release of the seminal Last Stand Of The Wreckers and has worked on countless other Transformers titles since then. He also seems to have something of a personality crisis, often thinking that in reality he is Beast Wars Megatron, usually during our script readings, but the less said about that the better…[/quote]

I've had a crappy few months which has caused me to not really think much about Transformers or post on here, but I'm hopeful to go

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!

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 ) 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.
