Auto Assembly 2013 Announced & Tickets for Life Scheme
Posted by News Fetcher on July 16 '12 at 05:15 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Yes, you are reading that right. With now less than two weeks to go before Europe's largest ever Auto Assembly rolls around, the dates for Auto Assembly 2013 have been announced and ticket bookings are already open for 2013. But that's not all, there's also a brand new way to book your tickets available!

Auto Assembly 2013 has been confirmed to be returning to the Hilton Birmingham Metropole Hotel in Birmingham in the UK. Next year's convention will be held over the weekend of 9-11 August 2013, so be sure to put those dates in your diaries now! Tickets are already on sale, priced at £50 for an adult weekend pass, with very reasonable hotel room rates (£62 per night for a double room) also arranged. As a bonus, if you book in August, you can get a special discount on a weekend ticket to the same cost as tickets to Auto Assembly 2012 - that is, a special rate of £45.

Alternatively, Auto Assembly are now offering a special scheme where you can buy a "pass for life". These special passes for attendees and dealers offer the choice of paying a one-off payment to guarantee yourself a place at all future Auto Assemblies for as long as the convention runs. For a standard attendee the price is £150 - so if you plan on attending every year it will pay for itself very quickly!

One final Auto Assembly 2013 update - there are going to be three voice actor guests again next year, all of whom are set to be announced at Auto Assembly 2012. Look forward to the announcement!

Find out more about all of this at the Auto Assembly homepage!

On a side note, you may also be interested to know that the Auto Assembly Kitbash / Customs competition has been announced. Check out the full details in this thread here.

Transformers Complete Drift Hardcover

By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Yes, you read that headline right, there is a Transformers Complete Drift Hardcover collection in the works, according to Amazon's UK site. Right now there is no indication on what is contained in the hardcover, but with a 152 page count in there, it seems likely that the hardcover will collect the four issue miniseries exploring the origins and motivations of Drift, along with Transformers Spotlight: Drift.

Transformers: Complete Drift Hardcover is set for a January 2013 release.

Transformers Kre-O Microchangers - How to Identify a Blind-Bagged Toy
Posted by News Fetcher on July 16 '12 at 03:15 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Here's some interesting news for you - the upcoming Transformers Kre-O Microchangers are blind-bagged so in theory it is down to luck which one you get, but in fact, there may be an easy way to figure out which one you are getting.

According to 2005 Boards member Fishformers, the front of each package is stamped with a number, which lines up with the product numbers of the Kreon Microchangers.

The product numbers are as follows:

Spinister: A1007
Galvatron: A1008
Sunstorm: A1009
Crankstart: A1010
Scorponok: A1011
Waspinator: A1012

The trick is to look at the number stamped at the bottom of the front of the packaging, as highlighted in one of the images attached to this story. See how the number ends in 2? That is your way to tell that Waspinator is lurking inside. In theory this means look for ones ending in a 9 to spot a Sunstorm, or those ending in 8 to unleash the madness of Galvatron.

Time will tell if this is a reliable way to identify all the blind-bagged Kreons - but we thought it was solid enough to pass the word along given other blind-packed products have done similar things in the past.

Live from SDCC TFW2005 brings you a high resolution, in hand, gallery of San Diego Comic Con 2012 Exclusive G1 Colors Fall of Cybertron Bruticus!

We didn't get every angle, and it may even be a bit mistransformed at times, but there are some cool shots that give you a better feel for the toy and what to expect.

I'm not big into reviews or getting super technical, as I think pictures speak louder than words. Overall, the figure is a bit lighter than I am used to. The figures move in a bunch of different ways to allow for the various transformations into limbs etc. This gives it a bit of a loose feel, and at times I felt like I was going to break it. However, once this was in hand, and transformed a bit differently than stock photos so far, the largeness of Bruticus really shines and overcomes those issues. Overall I was on the fence pre-buy, grabbed it because I felt like I had to, and now am happy I did. You guys will have to decide for yourselves though.

Enjoy the pics after the break. Later!
