An update from the good chaps at Auto Assembly
tonight - as traditional this year's attendance-record shattering Auto Assembly will have a Friday night screening of Transformers the Movie (that's the original 1986 animated one folks!)
What makes this year's screening so special is that the screening will be preceded by a special introduction by the voice of Generation 1 Perceptor Paul Eiding and followed up with a Q&A with Paul all about the movie. It's a part of the Friday night schedule which you only get to attend if you're on the whole weekend pass for the show - and it is well worth doing because the atmosphere in the room is unrivaled. You've not seen the original Transformers animated movie until you've seen it in a room with a few hundred fellow fans and all joined in a chorus of the most famous lines - it's well worth doing!
Auto Assembly 2012 is less than four weeks away now! It's being held over the weekend of 3-5 August 2012 at the Hilton Metropole in Birmingham, England. Find out more and pre-register for Europe's largest Transformers convention at the Auto Assembly homepage
