Fun fact: Birmingham is England's second biggest city after London.
Fun fact number two: Auto Assembly is always in Birmingham.
This time the event was once more two days long well 2.5 if you booked the full weekend as that granted you access to the Friday afternoon and evening program, old G1 episodes, a fan dub and an exclusive screening of Transformers Revenge of the Fallen at the Odeon.
So Transformers fans from all over the UK, well Europe no the world meet up and had a grate time together.
The two guests of honour where: Gregg Berger (G1 Grimlock, Skyfire, Autback and Long Houl) and Ian James Corlett (BW/BM Cheetor). But they weren't the only guests, we had Nick Roche (Spotlight Kup, Maximum Dinobots), Jason Cardy (colourist), Kat Nicholson (colourist), Liam Shalloo (colourist, inker), Andrew Wildman (do we have to state the obvious? well OK, artist), Simon Williams (artist), Kris Carter (colourist), Staz Johnson (artist), Mike Collins (artist), Lee Bradley (artist), Lew Stringer (artist) and Jon Davis-Hunt (artist). All guests were grate and just fun to talk to and best of all just felt very at home at the con and where down to earth and just mingle with the fans. Simon Furman who is an Auto Assembly regular and is considered by many to be part of the Auto Assembly inventory could not come as he was at a marriage, but he did write a spiffy script for AA09's script reading, with Gregg Berger reprising his roles as Grimlock and Outback and Ian James Corlett reprising his role as Cheetor, Nick Roche as Beast Wars Megatron (yeeeeesss) and seibertronian Skullgrin140 as Waspinator (grate performance)! The script centred around Cheetor, Razorbeast and Dinobot meeting Grimlock and trying to stop Megatron's evil plan of destroying the multi-verse as we know it with the help of Outback and G1 Optimus Prime, the script was a bit of a self-mocking of Simon Furman.
There was also a concert of the young UK band Next of Kin covering many Transformers songs and a few of their own creations, a special of Irish singer Ray with his song "Unknown Transforming Robot"
I even got Gregg Berger to do this:
Gregg Berger arriving on stage:
Sorry for the bad quality had nothing but a phone.
I managed to take just a few photos although my phone had difficulties.
If you're interested in everything that happened and want to see the exclusive Saturday night program containing the script reading and concert you will be able to buy a DVD from Auto Assembly soon.
Got your own videos or photos to share? Then please do share them!
See you next year at Auto Assembly 2010!

Ray is a cool guy, great musician(love his song), and unfortunately he's taking a hiatus from his Youtube channel for a while.
AA seems to be a cool con and I hope I get to go to Canada's own TFcon next year.
