Charitable donations have always been important to Auto Assembly and this year is no different. Throughout the weekend we shall be auctioning some fantastic and rare items which have been donated by notable members of the Transformers community, with the proceeds going to a very worthy cause.
Our first few charity items are listed below, but first, let’s take a moment to see who the auctions will benefit. It’s a fabulous charity and we urge you to give generously – remember that your donations don’t have to stop at the convention!
Mary’s Meals is an international charity which provides food and education to children who live in poverty.

And now for some of the first few items we have prepared for the auction – Please note – Auto Assembly does not buy autographs. All items are obtained either from personal agents, or direct from the celebrity involved (yes, we are friends!) so please rest assured, what you are bidding on has always come from an official source.

Signed photograph of Mark Wahlberg, the lead actor from Transformers: Age of Extinction. Mark is pictures with Bumblebee.
The Bumblebee Collection – donated by the voice of G1 Bumblebee, Dan Gilvezan, this set includes a T-shirt, a Gold Bumblebee toy and a copy of Dan’s Autobiography, “Bumblebee and Me: Life as a G1 Transformer”.
