The updates from Auto Assembly, Europe's largest Transformers convention, have kept coming in! In the last couple of days, two major announcement have been made: first off, the core creative team behind IDW Publishing's Transformers: ReGeneration One comics series will all be returning as guests, and that includes Simon Furman, Andrew Wildman, Stephen Baskerville and John-Paul Bove; Jason Cardy, the cover colourist, will also be attending, as part of the newly created Artist Alley at the convention, along with (for now) Kat Nicholson, Liam Shalloo and Kris Carter. Check out more below, and head here for even further information!

Transformers News: Auto Assembly 2014 Updates - Artist Alley and ReGeneration One Creative Team


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.


Transformers News: Auto Assembly 2014 Updates - Artist Alley and ReGeneration One Creative Team


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.

The UK is warming up (before drowning in floods again), and its biggest Transformers convention reveals their new, exclusive, attendee-only lithograph, with artwork by Auto Assembly's resident artist Ed Pirrie! The piece is a massive A2 size (16.5 x 23.4 in), and will be given free at registration until stocks last - check it out below!

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!!

With not long left to the event, Auto Assembly 2014 has finally revealed its final guest, joining a list so long you can find it linked here - he's a writer, artist, liar and Irishman, and will be gracing the Hilton halls from his Marvel and IDW gigs: Nick Roche!

NICK ROCHE

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…

That is a *much* younger Nick, yes. He hasn't updated the photo in years. :D

Lol

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

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…
