Auto Assembly 2014 is celebrating the 30th anniversary of the Transformers in style, by inviting some of the most exciting guests from the last three decades!
Our guests will be available for autographs (at no additional cost) at various times throughout the weekend and shall also be taking your questions in our panels – be sure to check out the convention programme for times as soon as it is released!
Without further ado, here are our fantastic guests! (this page will be updated as more guests are confirmed)
David Sobolov is the voice of the logic-driven Decepticon scientist, Shockwave, from Transformers Prime, as well as the vengeance-seeking Depth Charge, from Beast Wars.
Away from Transformers he has also played such notable roles as Robocop, Darkseid, The Persuader and Blackheart.
Peter Spellos is the voice behind the world’s favourite (and only) poetry-reading shark – Sky-Byte, from Transformers:Robots in Disguise.
Peter has an extensive back catalogue of work and is particularly well known by Digimon fans… as is out next guest…
Michael McConnohie is best known to Transformers Generation 1 fans as the voice behind the lonely spaceship – Cosmos, and the most fabulous Autobot – Tracks.
He also gave life to Hotshot and Ironhide in Transformers:Robots in Disguise – a show where he also played the crucial role of Voice Director.
Possibly most loved for his highly acclaimed roles as The Tick and the the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle, Michaelangelo, Townsend is known by Transformers fans for his portrayal of the uptight Sentinel Prime from Transformers:Animated.
TRANSFORMERS: REGENERATION ONE
We are thrilled to be able to re-unite the entire creative team of the hit comic series which brought about the G1 continuity’ epic conclusion – Transformers: Regeneration One.

Livio is the thrilling talent behind the Transformers: Autocracy, Monstrosity and Primacy series. He has also contributed work to The Covenant of Primus, as well as working on numerous issues and covers for the Transformers: Robots in Disguise ongoing comic book. His work is particularly prevalent in the Chaos story arc.
A highly prolific Transformers writer, Jim has written numerous works including, Transformers: The Ark (1 and 2), Transformers Animated: The Allspark Almanac (1 and 2), and Transformers: The Art of Prime. One of his latest offerings is, Legacy: The Art of Transformers Packaging, which should be going to print shortly.
TRANSFORMERS: MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE
A real treat will be in store for fans of the More The Meets The Eye comic book, as the whole creative team will be united at Auto Assembly 2014! This is one group of guests you won’t want to swerve! (see what we did there?)

Making his Auto Assembly debut in style is fan-favourite Artist, Casey Coller! As well as creating a host of covers for the Transformers: Robots in Disguise comic book, Casey has worked on numerous other titles including, All Hail Megatron, The Transformers: Ironhide and Spotlights Blurr & Cliffjumper.
Writer and artist extraordinaire, Nick made his mark with the release of the seminal Last Stand Of The Wreckers and has worked on countless other Transformers titles since then. He also seems to have something of a personality crisis, often thinking that in reality he is Beast Wars Megatron, usually during our script readings, but the less said about that the better…
Last (for now!) but certainly by no means least, is Auto Assembly’s very own in house artist, Ed Pirrie. Ed is responsible for the art used on our passes, postcards, screens and just about everything else! He is also the creator of this year’s stunning attendee lithograph. Ed will be taking sketch requests all weekend, so be sure to get in there fist becase we are certain the demand will be huge!
As with all conventions, Auto Assembly’s guest list is subject to availability and subject to change without notice. Thank you for your understanding.
