With just over two weeks to go to until Auto Assembly 2008 - Europe's biggest Transformers event, we've got a lot of major developments taking place so rather than putting everything into one big story we've had to split everything into two big updates. You may have already seen our general one, but this one is rather special...
As you know, we always produce a goodie bag full of free gifts for all our attendees. This year it has seemed a little sparse with just our usual Transform-A-Snacks, packs of G1 stickers, G1 Ladybird books for some of you and three of our convention exclusive postcards as well as a few other limited items that we're checking on. However, that has just changed with some amazing new items we've just been able to confirm!
We've just had some incredible goodies lined up from several companies that will be with us shortly with a twist and in the last couple of days alone we secured over 00 worth of gifts to give away! However, the quantities of these are limited so we are not going to have enough for everyone. This left us with a bit of a dilemma. We could either allocate them based on the order in which people had booked, give them out to people as they came in through the door, or a different system which we have decided to adopt...
Goodie Bag Draw!!
When you arrive on the day, you will each get your Registration Pack. In there will be a welcome letter, a programme for the day, a quiz entry form, flyers from a few sponsors, your badge that you will need to wear all day and - if you are lucky enough - winning tickets for the special goodie bag items so check your packs carefully! If you have won one of these prizes, just bring the tickets to the Registration Desk, hand them over to one of our staff and we'll give you the prize.
They are being allocated completely at random so some of you may not win anything, some of you may get one item and some of you may get everything up for grabs so it's quite possible that some of you may go home with a goodie bag worth over ! So what are the new items? Read on...
* Hulk DVD *
Liberation Entertainment is releasing a series of DVDs featuring old Marvel animated shows including the 80s classic Spiderman and His Amazing Friends (starring Dan Gilvezan as Spiderman!). They have sent us copies of one of their DVDs from this 1996 Hulk series which features the voices of Lou Ferrigno and Mark Hamill and has cover artwork from Simon Williams and we have a staggering 200 COPIES of these to give away worth £9.99 each!!
* Activision Goodie Bag *
Another stunning package! This is a package of goodies that Activision have put together for us containing a selection of goodies and contains a Transformer movie poster, a pen and pad plus a copy of their video game based on the movie so it is going to be worth anything up to £50 depending on the format of the game they send along!! These are going to be VERY limited as we are only going be getting somewhere between 20 and 25 of these!
* Titan Transformers Comic *
Another great gift! We are getting 50 COPIES of Issue 13 of Titan's new UK Transformers comic to give away to some of you lucky attendees which is the super-sized issue featured the Transformers Animated bonus content! This comic is worth £2.99!
One thing we do want to stress is that if you want to be in with a chance to get your hands on ANY of these goodies then you MUST book for Auto Assembly 2008 in advance as we are restricting the prize draws to pre-registrants ONLY. We think it's a pretty good reason for booking up though... not forgetting that you'll all STILL be entered into the MAIN pre-registrant prize draw as well!!
Well, that's it for now, but we've got more announcements up our sleeves soon so keep your eyes peeled on the net! Auto Assembly 2008 is going to be a great event and we can't wait to see you all there on 2nd August!
