Hasbro Prize Giveaway At Auto Assembly 2012

July 30th, 2012 by Marc Comments

A word from the Auto Assembly organisers: 

Auto Assembly 2012 is now only FOUR DAYS away but that doesn’t mean we still don’t have things to announce! We’ve kept a few things back until the last minute as we wanted to make sure we still had things to tell you right until you were all getting ready to leave for Birmingham and this is one that certainly put a smile on our faces here at Auto Assembly headquarters today…

We’re please to announce that Hasbro UK are once again supporting the convention and our charity fundraising efforts and have very generously donated a great selection of Transformers Prime toys that we will be giving away in our charity raffle this year. After some great deluxe toys? No problem! How about a few of the Cyberverse Commander class figures? They’ve sent us some of those as well. They’ve even donated some of the new Weaponiser figures so some of our lucky raffle prize winners will be going home with some great prizes this year!

Tickets for our charity raffle will be on sale all weekend for just 20p each and draws will be taking place all weekend so if you don’t win anything first time around keep your tickets safe. Remember the more tickets you buy, not only do you have more chances to win in each draw but the more you help us raise for three worthy charities. And with these great prizes and more besides including signed photos of various Transformers voice actors (did someone say Peter Cullen and Frank Welker?), it’s going to be a fantastic charity raffle!

If you haven’t already booked up for the convention or ordered a Non-Attendee Pack which gets you our stunning goodie bag with autographs from our guests, pre-registrations close in just TWO DAYS. After that time, you’ll still be able to come along to the convention and pay on the day but Non-Attendee Packs will no longer be available. Attendees will not get a personalised pass and will not be entered into any of our free prize draws (which are also open to Non-Attendees) so pre-registration is well worth it.

So what are you waiting for? There’s no better time to book your tickets while you can to be a part of Europe’s largest Transformers convention!

Auto Assembly 2012 is Europe’s largest EVER Transformers convention and is taking place over the weekend of 3rd – 5th August 2012 at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole Hotel. To book your tickets or find out more including details of all the dealers present and a full schedule for the weekend, visit the website at 

If you can’t make it to the convention this year don’t forget that tickets are now on sale for Auto Assembly 2013 which is set to be another stunning weekend!

Hope to see you on 3rd – 5th August.
The Auto Assembly Team

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….
