Jagex Major prize giveaway at Auto Assembly 2012!

July 21st, 2012 by Marc Comments

We already mentioned recently that Jagex, developers of the forthcoming Transformers Universe online MMO game were supporting Auto Assembly 2012 by providing us with a few prizes to give away to some of our attendees this year but now we can bring you full details of this amazing competition and how you can be one of our winners…

Jagex are sending us a staggering one hundred limited edition Transformers Universe t-shirts for us to give away to Auto Assembly 2012 attendees and all you need to be in with a chance to win one of these t-shirts is to pre-register for the convention! As long as you have booked your tickets for the convention by Wednesday 1st August 2012 you will be entered into a FREE prize draw and we will draw 100 names at random. We will then insert prize claim tickets inside 100 attendee packs that you will pick up from our Registration Desk when you arrive at the convention. All you need to do to claim your t-shirt is then bring your winning ticket to the Control Desk at any point over the weekend from 9:30 am on Saturday morning until the convention ends at 6:00 pm on Sunday and you’ll be handed your t-shirt.

Please check your packs very carefully as we can’t be held responsible for any lost or unclaimed prize tickets and we will not be able to issue prizes after the event.

1. The competition is open to all pre-registrants of Auto Assembly 2012 including Dealers and those purchasing a Non-Attendee Pack apart from employees of Jagex or their immediate families.
2. Holders of Partner Passes or Under 6s are not eligible to enter the prize draw.
3. Entrants must have registered for Auto Assembly 2012 by Wednesday 1st August 2012
4. Prizes must be claimed by 6:00 pm on Sunday 5th August 2012
5. Neither Auto Assembly or Jagex will be held responsibility for lost, stolen or damaged claim tickets.
6. Choice of t-shirt size is subject to availability
7. No substitute prizes or cash alternatives will be offered
8. Prizes will not be posted out with the exception of those for Non-Attendees whose prizes will be automatically claimed on their behalf.

Good luck and see you all in two week’s time!

So if you haven’t already pre-registered for Auto Assembly 2012 or bought a Non-Attendee Pack there’s still time before the deadline of 1st August 2012 and we still have plenty of announcements to make about the convention. After 1st August, the only way you can attend the convention is to buy your tickets on the day itself but you won’t get a personalised pass or be entered into this or any of our other pre-convention prize draws!

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 information on all our other guests including voice actors Paul Eiding, Michael Bell and Townsend Coleman, 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!

Hope to see you on 3rd – 5th August.

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….
