Auto Assembly 2010 Announces Massive Hasbro Giveaway!

Auto Assembly is teaming up with Hasbro again this year for some fantastic competitions this year that will blow everyone away!!

In the past couple of years we have had displays that have included displays of some of the curent toy ranges on offer in the UK and the unveiling the UK's first lucky draw toy that was produced in 2008. But for Auto Assembly 2010, it's going to be awesome...

This year, Hasbro have generously supplied us with no less than THIRTY sets Of the eagerly anticipated Challenge At Cybertron boxed set featuring Universe Cyclonus, Galvatron and Rodimus! This set is not being released in the UK and at the moment, it's not even released in the US and when it is, it will be a Target exclusive!!

To be in with a chance of winning one of these, you MUST be pre-registered for the convention. We will then be holding a random prize draw and 30 lucky winners will be chosen, and winning tickets will be inserted into the attendee packs that you will collect when you arrive at the convention. If you find one, bring it to the Registration Desk to claim your prize!!

If you haven't already booked, there's still time to be in with a chance to win one of these great sets of toys and be entered into some of our other draws that we will be announcing soon...!

To find out more about Hasbro's involvement and some other things they are doing, watch the official announcement video here:-

Tickets are selling fast for the convention and if you want to be a part of this and the prize draw you need to book quickly! Every day we are setting a new attendance record so why not hurry and be a part of Europe's biggest Transformers convention.

The convention is taking place over the weekend of Friday 13th - Sunday 15th August 2010 at the Holiday Inn Birmingham City Centre, Birmingham, England. There will be Friday and Saturday evening programmes that are exclusive for weekend attendees and the Saturday evening will play host to a massive musical party, costume competition, and the script and disco / karaoke.

We have frozen the ticket prices for the convention from Auto Assembly 2009 and full weekend tickets are £45 for adults and £35 for children, students and senior citizens, with under 5s admitted free. Family tickets (2 adults and 2 children) are available for £145. One day tickets for Saturday have sold out, but one day tickets for Sunday are still available and cost £25 for adults, £18 for children, students or senior citizens and under 5's as always are free. However as they are limited, if you want to come along for just the day then you need to book NOW!

Most Target exclusives seem to come to Zellers in Canada, so hopefully this time will be no different.

That is freaking awesome :shock:

Two questions;

1. Have these been sourced from Hasbro UK?

2. Is this indicative of a UK release in the long-term?

Hasbro UK, why must torture me like this? You are generally so bloody useless and then pull something like this and the WFC-Starscream out the bag.

You can do Hasbro UK, go you :APPLAUSE:

EDIT:Just watched the video and H'UK have told AA this set won't be released in the UK. Then again they told me they had no idea about MP-Grimmy only for TRU to confirm it a day later, so we'll have to wait and see.

Hey Pretender Skywarp

My names Rohan and I used to work for Hasbro, you may have seen me at the last two auto assembly's running the Hasbro stand on their behalf.

To answer your questions.

1) These 30 sets have been sourced directly from my contact at Hasbro UK.

2) Unfortunately this product is not set for a UK release (as far as I have been informed at this time. While this is unlikely to change I cannot be certain as Im no longer in the loop).

Ive been working very hard on Hasbro over the past 5 years to try to get them to do more for the fans and every now and again they pull through with something awesome like this.

Hope this helps

See you at Auto Assembly!

Rohan,

Welcome to the boards, be aware that Seibertron contains NUTS 8-}

(standard welcome around here)

Just so you are aware H'UK get a lot of bad press round here, mostly due to the lack of contact, press releases or the way us fans just get plain ignored :BANG_HEAD:

Any insight that you can give us would, I'm sure go a long way to making the UK/Euro fans understand what H'UK are and aren't capable of doing/telling us.

I haven' been able to make the last two AA's due to work commitments, but am taking my lad (as a suprise) to this one

I don't want to take this thread too far off topic soo feel free to drop into the UK sightings forum or drop me a PM :D

I promise to go easy on you ;)

Thanks I've been lurking on here for years but never actually posted :-)

Dont worry I know H'UK never get good press amongst TF UK fans. I did try to improve the situation with regards to the fan / Hasbro relationship while I was working there but it was a difficult process.

I will be sure to try and give you any insight I can but I did leave the company approximately 2.5 years ago.

Sounds good, I hope to see you there.

Cheers

Phew! Glad there is some kinda confirmation that we are getting this at Target here in the US. Good to know I won't have to order this online and pay an arm and a leg for this. Getting this for HotRod and Cyclonus...meh on Galvy.
