Auto Assembly 2012 Convention Exclusive Lithograph Unveiled

July 2nd, 2012 by Marc Comments

For most of you attending Auto Assembly 2012 (What is Auto Assembly? Let us tell you here) this August – or if you have ordered their Non-Attendee Package – you know that they are giving away a selection of gifts as part of their traditional goodie bag. As well as their regular exclusive postcards, convention magazine, and comic they are producing an A2 lithograph this year and are now proud to unveil the artwork for the first time…

Illustrated by Marvel UK artist Jeff Anderson and coloured by Kris Carter, the artwork has been inspired by some of the old comic covers featured on the British Marvel Transformers comics and features Galvatron, Cyclonus and Scourge. The litho is limited to a print run of just 1,000 copies and is ONLY going to be made available at Auto Assembly 2012, so unless you attend the convention or order a Non-Attendee Pack, you won’t be able to get this fantastic piece of artwork.

They were so impressed with this art that it is also featuring as the cover image for this year’s convention exclusive comic, Iacon Independent, and they are also producing a postcard based on the original lineart from the card so it’s adding up to a fantastic package of gifts.

For all you dealers and businesses out there reading this, Auto Assembly want to give YOU the chance to be a part of this as they have the opportunity for one lucky company to be associated with this lithograph and to sponsor it! You’ll get the chance to not only have your company’s logo and details featured on the litho, but on the associated postcard as well! They have several package deals on offer linking in with the lithograph which can also tie in with the convention magazine and exclusive comic so YOUR company could be heavily linked with this artwork so what are you waiting for? This is a one-off opportunity to get your company onto a product that will be on display on the walls of fans all over the world! Email them for more details on!

Auto Assembly 2012 is Europe’s largest Transformers convention and is taking place over the weekend of 3rd – 5th August 2012 at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole Hotel.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
