    With just ONE WEEK to go before Auto Assembly 2009, things are still happening with the convention and moving along at a breakneck speed...

    * Live Script Reading *

    We have now cast the first role in the script reading session that will be taking place on the Saturday evening. Join Gregg Berger, Ian James Corlett and comic artist Simon Williams on stage will be leading Transformers expert Chris McFeely who will be taking on the role of Dinobot! Chris put in a sterling audition and you can hear his performance over on the Auto Assembly website. We are still auditioning for Megatron, Waspinator and Razorbeast so get your MP3s in if you want to take a crack at joining these guys on stage! We may be announcing the next voice very soon...

    * Bookings Update *

    We are very close to reaching 500 attendees now for the convention! We now have 473 pre-registrants for Auto Assembly 2009 and we are still getting bookings every day so we think that there is a chance that we will get 500 just from pre-bookings alone! What this does mean is that some of the free gifts in the goodie bag are running out fast. Several of them ARE limited and are only available for the first so many pre-registrants. We have already run out of DVDs and G1 stickers and the next ones to run out will be the posters. If you want to make sure you get as many gifts as possible, you will need to book sooner rather than later!

    There is still time for you to book your tickets. UK attendees have time to pre-book and have your single-day and weekend passes posted to you in time for the convention. Non-attendee tickets, weekend passes and international bookings can be accepted online until 9:00 pm on 12th August and will be available for you to collect on Friday 14th August from the convention hotel!

    * Auction Update *

    We have expanded the list of items in the Auto Assembly Charity Auction again and have now started to add a gallery of images so you can see for yourself what items we have on offer to help raise valuable funds for the two worthy causes that we are supporting this year. This is probably the best year we have ever had for collectors of original artwork and more items are still arriving daily!

    * Guest Update *

    We have just had word from Staz Johnson that he will now only be with us at Auto Assembly 2009 for the Saturday ONLY. We still have our full line-up of 15 guests but as we have said before, the ONLY way you will be able to see and meet all of them is if you are attending for the full weekend.

    * Revenge Of The Fallen *

    Details are now being finalised for our late-night screening of Revenge Of The Fallen as part of the Friday night bonus programme of events for weekend attendees. We will be heading to the Odeon cinema in Birmingham for an EXCLUSIVE screening of the film and tickets will be £4.50 each. While it isn't an IMAX screening, we will have the entire screen to ourselves and the movie will start at around 9:30 pm. If you've ever wanted to see the film in a cinema packed with die-hard TF fans, then now is your chance! You must be a weekend attendee to join us for this added programme item!

    * Simon Furman Confirmed For Auto Assembly 2010! *

    Yes, you read it right!! While Simon is unable to make it for this year's convention, Simon has already confirmed on his blog that he WILL be in attendance at Auto Assembly 2010! We haven't got a date set for the convention yet apart from thinking about August next year, but for those of you attending this year, now more than ever you should think about picking up a copy of our convention exclusive comic so you can make sure you get Simon to sign it as well as Nick, Liam and Gregg!
