The British Broadcasting Corparation's Birmingham news featured and article today on its main page regarding the upcoming Auto Assembly convention. In the feature, The BBC interviews Sven Harvey, one of the two organizers (Simon Plumbe being the other) of the largest Transformers convention in Europe.

Taken from the interview with Mr. Harvey:

"It really started back in the late 90s," explains founder, 33 year old Sven Harvey. "Simon led a team, including myself and organised a Star Trek convention that the attendees absolutely loved.

"From that came a small local Star Trek fan club but as interest in Star Trek wained, we thought we could try meeting I the same vein with Transformers. Along with Star Trek and Star Wars, Transformers is the most popular science fiction franchise on the internet."


Getting this kind of exposure on a major news outlet can only mean good things for Auto Assembly and this years attendees. Registration for the Assembly is still being taken at the Auto Assembly Website.
