    Ticket sales for Auto Assembly 2010 are doing incredibly well and we are on target to break all attendance records again for a European Transformers convention as fans join us to celebrate our tenth anniversary year...

    We do appreciate that there are many of you who would love to be able to attend the convention but can't attend either because of distance, personal circumstances or commitments, financial constraints or simply those of you who are unable to get time off work so once again we are offering a non-attendee package which will allow you to get involved in the convention and get your hands on all of this year's convention goodies and a whole lot more besides...

    The Auto Assembly 2010 Non-Attendee Packages are £70 for anyone living in the UK and £80 for the rest of the world and are fully inclusive of shipping costs. While these are more expensive than passes for the convention, we think they offer exceptional value for money. Why? Well, each non-attendee pack will get you:-

    * A Personalised convention pass with your own ticket number
    * The FULL Auto Assembly goodie bag containing a wide range of gifts (the earlier your ticket number, the more gifts will be in your bag. Visit the website to see the full details of what's on offer this year!)
    * The Cybertronian Times Issue 11, signed by ALL our convention guests
    * IDW's Transformers Issue 9 convention exclusive variant cover comic
    * Auto Assembly 2010 convention exclusive mug
    * Auto Assembly 2010 Swindle keyring
    * Auto Assembly 2010 Rattrap keyring
    * A personalised sketch from a random Auto Assembly 2010 comic artist guest
    * Three additional Auto Assembly 2010 fanzines from Transmasters UK
    * The Auto Assembly 2010 Pre-Registrant CD-ROM
    * A copy of the Auto Assembly official theme song, "Transform" 4-track CD single
    * Ten entries into the Auto Assembly 2010 charity raffle
    * Proxy bidding rights for the Auto Assembly charity auction

    And more surprise items! To see more details of some of the items in the goodie bag, you can see a full list, including an exclusive first look at this year's convention exclusive postcards, on the Auto Assembly website.

    This is the best non-attendee package we have EVER put together and is an ideal way for you to get involved with the convention if you can't make it this year and potentially your ONLY chance to get this year's convention exclusive comic which features cameos on the cover from our guests of honour Garry Chalk, Scott McNeil and Derrick J Wyatt!

    Once you have paid your £70 (or £80 if you live outside the UK) there is nothing more to pay. The only additional charges are for additional postage charges that may be incurred should any competition prizes be won that we may need to ship, or relevant amounts for any auction items that you may win.

    We do admit that we had some difficulties with our packs for AA2009, but we have managed to resolve all of these so we won't experience the shipping delays that we experienced last time. We will have most of the content ready to ship well in advance of the convention itself with just the autographs and final few items being collected over the weekend itself with the packs being shipped a week or two after the convention.

    To purchase your non-attendee package, visit the Auto Asembly website NOW! If you are able to join us, full weekend tickets are available and are £45 for adults and £35 for children/students/senior citizens with under 5s being FREE. Family tickets (2 adults and 2 children) are just £145 saving £15. Limited numbers of single day passes are also available starting from £18. Don't miss out on your chance to be a part of what is going to be a great weekend for Transformers fans everywhere!!

    For more details on the convention taking place over the weekend of 13th-15th August 2010 in Birmingham, England, 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.

    Auto Assembly won't relocate outside of Birmingham. Logistically, it would be an absolute nightmare for this to happen. I don't drive so I'm dependent on other people to get me (and the houseful of equipment and paperwork) to get there, and Birmingham is the most accessible city in the UK for people to get to whether it is by road, rail or air and has a fantastic public transport system for anyone who does live in the local area.

    From a personal point of view, anywhere that isn't easy for me to get to on a regular basis is impractical as it means I can't have regular visits to the venue to check on progress, hall layout or have quick update meetings or even pop in on-spec for a casual visit or in the case of last year and probably this year just pop in to nearby hotels to discuss rates for overflow hotels.

    I *did* think about the idea of running a "Mini-Auto Assembly" a couple of years ago in another city about six months apart from the main convention focusing more on dealers tables with just a couple of comic guests and lasting for around six hours but those were shelved but again, that would have needed to have been held in a larger city like Manchester with very strong transport links.

    Saying that, Birmingham is very easy to get to from Bristol - just a single train... I used to do the journey a lot myself!

    Just an update on this...

    We have had some people go to the page on the site where you can order the pack and just order copies of the official convention theme song Transform. The option to order the CD here is JUST for those people who are buying the Non-Attendee Package as this is to order additional copies of the disc and shipping costs are already taken into consideration in the Non-Attendee Package itself.

    If you only want to order the CD, please go to the Auto Assembly Shop page on the website where there are separate purchasing options for the CD with shipping included. Please note that this is the ONLY piece of merchandise that you can buy at the moment without attending the convention or buying a Non-Attendee Package.

    Other convention merchandise from Auto Assembly 2010 will be available to buy through the website after the event subject to stock availability.

    What are those symbols that are not quite autobot and decepticon insignias? I have a figure with that, and I was thought maybe that made it a KO.

    If you mean the ones on the Auto Assembly logo, it's based on an amalgamation of variants of the G1, G2 and Beast Wars insignias for Autobots / Maximals and Decepticons / Predacons.
