Auto Assembly Statement Regarding Birmingham Unrest

Direct from the AA Team:

"Hi everyone,

In light of the recent, saddening news coming from various cities around the UK, the Auto Assembly Committee has been flooded with questions, as you might imagine. Our response has been purposefully delayed and carefully considered - we are sure you will understand that we are faced with a unique situation and we wanted to take the opportunity to consider every possible eventuality.

To anybody who doesn’t know, there have been reports of isolated pockets of civil unrest in Birmingham. West Midlands Police have confirmed they will have a very large Police presence on the streets tonight to ensure that they continue to calm the situation. Like everybody in the UK right now, we are thankful for the great job that the Officers are doing at present in such difficult circumstances.

Nevertheless, we are pleased to announce that as things stand, Auto Assembly 2011 will go ahead as planned... and is going to rock! As the song goes, “Nothing’s gonna stand in our way, not tonight!”

Now, we are keeping a constant eye on the news and on official Police press releases so, if this situation changes we promise we will make an announcement the second we find out. But rest assured, we have no intentions whatsoever of cancelling Europe’s biggest and best Transformers convention unless we are presented with absolutely no alternative. The show, as they say, must go on!

However - it is of the utmost importance that all our convention goers please bear a few things in mind to ensure that we all have a fantastic and most importantly, a safe convention this weekend.
  1. Auto Assembly 2011 is still ON.
  2. Allow extra travelling time to and from the convention.
  3. Don't go out of the hotel alone. Try to stay in groups for safety.
  4. Don't go out of the hotel after dark on your own.
  5. Keep valuables safe at all times.
  6. Be vigilant.
  7. Please look out for each other and be safe.
As we say, if for any reason the situation changes we will inform you as soon as we can, but at present Auto Assembly 2011 is ON!!!! We just need to take extra care in looking after each other this year Transformers fans.

Finally, remember that for those of you arriving in Birmingham one or two days early, you can pick up your passes on Thursday afternoon between 2:00 and 4:00 pm which will make your admission to the convention Much easier. Trish and Simon will be in the hotel bar on the second floor to do this but you must contact us in advance to let us know.

Anyway, we're looking forward to seeing you all in a few days.

The Auto Assembly Team"

And just to further hammer this point home, A video from our very own Timelord:

Congratulations, Mr & Mrs Anderson!

Today Rob Anderson, one of our longest-serving moderators (known as Valentine75), got married to his fiancée Kas. I first met Rob through the Moonbase 2 forum & Kaz through Skype in 2009 where she let me entertain their young son Alex through a webcam by pulling silly faces at him. In 2010 I finally got to met Rob & Kas at Auto Assembly and they are one of the sweetest couples you will ever come across. Alas, I couldn't accept the invite to attend the wedding today due the multiple financial difficulties, but I like to think I'm up there in spirit.

Congratulations Rob, Kas and little Alex. I hope one of these days we will meet again :)

SDCC reveals on Masters of the Universe Chronicles!

Welcome back to another packed edition of Masters of the Universe Chronicles. This time there is a lot to talk about since the San Diego Comic Con reveals went down. To help Chris, he had Rob Base talk about a few figures that he took a shine too and also regarding the MOTU comics that are making a welcome return. Before we get to the next segment you will hear the audio from the Toy Masters documentary trailer. Interesting stuff! Roger Lay Jr will be returning onto Masters of the Universe Chronicles so please send Chris your questions via email or on the facebook page and you can join his facebook page, just type in Toy Masters.

Up next is Dylan Cook and Mike Lacey. They then cover some of the other figures as well as talking about the Masters of the Universe Classics Create a Character. Since this isn't opened to the international fans, this is something that Dylan and Chris go over. Last but by no means least is Wade Thurman who was at the convention and he goes over the atmosphere, what freebies he got as well! Wade goes over the fan vote that was at the convention and more importantly what colour he voted for on a certain mythical dragon. Wade also sent Chris the audio he recorded from the Mattypalooza panel and it is in the end of the show after you hear "Let the power return" and runs for about 35 mins! just a little bonus for you all! You can contact the show by emailing or if you are on Skype - Vinto316. There is a Facebook page you can join and you can do that by going to and Vinto316 on Twitter. Thanks as always for listening!
