    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:-

    YouTube - Auto Assembly News - Episode 009 - Hasbro Announcement

    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!

    For more details on the convention, to see a full list of all the guests and activities taking place over the weekend, or to book your tickets, visit the website at Auto Assembly

    We hope to see you all in August 2010.

    Cool. Definitely sounds like this years AA should be great.

    Should we take this as an official confirmation for the US release of this set?

    More power to you fellow TF fans across the pond, but forgive me for being interested in the "US Target exclusive" news. Who'd you hear that from? That would in fact be excellent news for me. :)

    This is brilliant!

    By my shoddy maths that's almost a 1 in 17 chance of winning one!

    Me and my girlfriend are both going so between us we've got a 1 in 9 or so chance.

    Ohboyohboyohboyohboyohboy!

    Sorry guys this isnt confirmed 100% as the UK arnt privy to the sales strategies of the US.

    I can confirm Hasbro UK told me that this set would not be sold in the UK and that potentially it could be an exclusive with Target in the US.

    Indeed,

    If there ends up being 560 pre-registered attendees (based on there being 520ish now and there only being 2 weeks left) then we each have a 1 in 19 chance of winning, per ticket (I say per ticket in case of people who are going in groups)

    Well I'll hang onto my BBTS preorder just in case, but hopefully they will manage to sell this to Target. They have some of the nicest exclusives...

    Also, consider that probably a good chunk of folks who do win a boxset don't actually want all of the figures, and I expect they'll get spread pretty far among the convention-goers who actually want one.
