Auto Assembly 2012 is now only FOUR DAYS away but that doesn't mean we still don't have things to announce! We've kept a few things back until the last minute as we wanted to make sure we still had things to tell you right until you were all getting ready to leave for Birmingham and this is one that certainly put a smile on our faces here at Auto Assembly headquarters today...
We're please to announce that Hasbro UK are once again supporting the convention and our charity fundraising efforts and have very generously donated a great selection of Transformers Prime toys that we will be giving away in our charity raffle this year. After some great deluxe toys? No problem! How about a few of the Cyberverse Commander class figures? They've sent us some of those as well. They've even donated some of the new Weaponiser figures so some of our lucky raffle prize winners will be going home with some great prizes this year!
Tickets for our charity raffle will be on sale all weekend for just 20p each and draws will be taking place all weekend so if you don't win anything first time around keep your tickets safe. Remember the more tickets you buy, not only do you have more chances to win in each draw but the more you help us raise for three worthy charities. And with these great prizes and more besides including signed photos of various Transformers voice actors (did someone say Peter Cullen and Frank Welker?), it's going to be a fantastic charity raffle!
If you havenâ€™t already booked up for the convention or ordered a Non-Attendee Pack which gets you our stunning goodie bag with autographs from our guests, pre-registrations close in just TWO DAYS. After that time, youâ€™ll still be able to come along to the convention and pay on the day but Non-Attendee Packs will no longer be available. Attendees will not get a personalised pass and will not be entered into any of our free prize draws (which are also open to Non-Attendees) so pre-registration is well worth it.
So what are you waiting for? Thereâ€™s no better time to book your tickets while you can to be a part of Europeâ€™s largest Transformers convention!
Auto Assembly 2012 is Europe's largest EVER Transformers convention and is taking place over the weekend of 3rd - 5th August 2012 at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole Hotel. To book your tickets or find out more including details of all the dealers present and a full schedule for the weekend, visit the website at www.autoassembly.org.uk
If you can't make it to the convention this year don't forget that tickets are now on sale for Auto Assembly 2013 which is set to be another stunning weekend!
Hope to see you on 3rd - 5th August.

That is horrible yet utterly hilarious at the same time. Better be careful with the not-quite-dead-yet cases like Rung. Everyone was so sure that he was dead, but then MTMTE #8 came out.
And hopefully this baby will be online to buy for those who can't go to Auto Assembly. And in other news: holy crap Magnus is huge.

Well, if Brainstorm is missing...honestly there are a lot of the 3rd tier crew missing, but oh well (Hoist, Brawn, Inferno, Blaster, Cosmos, Powerglide, Perceptor...).
Still a rad print that if I were there, I would buy.

All I wanted to say was I agree, rodimus is giving off a protoman vibe. My first thought was 'why does roddy look like Jack from prime?'
I dont care for the way Drift looks either. But I still love the characters. It's his style, so thats all good, but my humble opinion is I prefer them to look less cartoony than they do.
I like that Milne style, the way he draws roddys "wings" and stuff.
to be honest, I dont know why a bunch of the autobots are basically psychos these days. Whirl obviously, Brainstorms a creeper, and why is Chromedome basically Mindwipe. I read them by trades , so I left off at the part where the retarded robot wants to "be a decepticon" all playin with his fingers like a dumbass. I wanted to slap the snot out of him, and I hope Ratchet does it for me in the next trade. (you can see why I dip in and out of the forums, in hopes of avoiding spoilers....good luck, I already know Grimlocks alive etc....thanks amazon). Oh and if they kill off Ultra Magnus Im gonna be one very unhappy transfan. I know its kinda sorta a time travel thing possibly like x-men future or whatever, but if they kill UM im gonna be pissed. Oh and bring Springer back . If whirl killed him off Im gonna be pretty effin upset as well

Because the post that's linked to the news article was posted here. Pretty much all Auto Assembly related information has been going into this thread since the start of last year, keeps things tidy and any press releases from AA get front paged anyway so nobody should be missing out on developments if they don't check in here.

You should buy the LSTOTW hardback. Springer's fate is an added prose story.

Other highlights included the RG: One panel, and seeing so many talented artists, writers and actors under one roof, who were all great to talk to. I will definately make it next year. A terrible picture of my 'haul' is below - I'm really glad that I finally got black Hybrid Convoy.

Auto Assembly 2012 Marlboor Kitbash Workshop Video Released
All of us here at Auto Assembly are still recovering from Auto Assembly 2012 which was our most successful convention ever attracting just under 800 fans from all over the world to Birmingham reinforcing our position as Europe's largest Transformers convention.
A few months ago, when we announced our partnership with Calloway Customs to bring all of our attendees (and those who ordered our Non-Attendee Pack) our Marlboor upgrade kit for Generations Wheeljack to convert the toy into an updated version of Diaclone Marlboor we were shocked and pleased with the response to it and promised that we would release the footage from the accompanying workshop for those who couldn't make it.
Well now everyone can see exactly what you need to do with the kit in this specially recorded workshop hosted by Sid Beckett and Nick Calloway that was filmed exclusively for our Youtube Channel during the convention weekend!
We can also exclusively reveal that we are looking into plans for a follow-up custom kit and workshop for Auto Assembly 2013 with Calloway Customs! It's still in the early planning stages right now but to be a part of this workshop book your tickets for next year's convention early to avoid disappointment. Tickets are selling at a phenomenal rate and it looks already as if Auto Assembly 2013 will be our first ever sell-out event! We will be doing another Non-Attendee Pack for those of you who can't make it, but this won't be unveiled until some time next year.
For those of you thinking about attending Auto Assembly 2013, our guests of honour next year are Steve Blum (Starscream in Transformers: Prime), Dan Gilvezan (Bumblebee in G1) and Neil Kaplan (Optimus Prime in Robots In Disguise). Further guests including details of our comic guest line-up, will be announced shortly.
Auto Assembly 2013 is Europe's largest EVER Transformers convention and is taking place over the weekend of 9th - 11th August 2013 at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole Hotel. To book your tickets or find out more including details of all the dealers attending, all of our guests and a full schedule for the weekend, visit the website at http://www.autoassembly.org.uk
If you can't make it to the convention, we'll be offering a Non-Attendee Package early in the new year and running other online activities that you'll be able to get involved with!
Hope to see you all next year!
