Hi seibertronians, so Europe's biggest Transformers convention Auto Assembly 2009 has ended on Sunday. The event was located in the Holiday inn Birmingham city Centre.
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:

I'm not European but a lot of the Youtubers I subscribe to are European Transformers fans and the common thread running through their videos post Auto Assembly 2009 is that they had a wonderful time. That is just a cool thing.

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.

Their lucky draw Galvatron that is out of the box is a fake - it's got an orange tricker. The sealed one is legitimate though. Too bad I live nowhere near anywhere that has decent conventions. We've got Armageddon. What a pathetic convention that is. And it's overly crowded. Pass for me. I wish I could go to AA, TFcon, or even Botcon.
