Auto Assembly 2013 Presents – Night Of The Bumblebee!

Dan Gilvezan and Bumblebee and Me

Auto Assembly 2013 is just ONE MONTH away and we’re pleased to be able to bring you the first exciting details of this year’s schedule starting with the Friday night of the convention, which is EXCLUSIVE for weekend ticket holders…

We are really excited about this extra special programme and we believe that it is going to be our biggest Friday night programme ever. Attendees will be able to collect their passes for the convention from our Registration Desk from 12:30 pm on the Friday afternoon but when we open the doors for Europe’s Largest Transformers Convention at 6:00 pm, you’re going to be in for a great night!

We’re going to start the night off with a a special look at Overlord, first deconstructing the character in a special session hosted by none other than James Roberts, Nick Roche and Alex Milne! Following on from that will be a discussion panel and Q&A session with the More Than Meets The Eye creative team.

But that’s not all. We then move up a gear into our special theme for the evening… the Night Of The Bumblebee! We’re shifting gear to take a look at everyone’s favourite yellow Autobot – G1 Bumblebee as portrayed by one of our guests of honour for Auto Assembly 2013, Dan Gilvezan.

Night Of The Bumblebee

We’ll be kicking things off with a special panel looking at the legacy of Bumblebee over the last three decades in the toys, comics and on screen followed with the night’s main event. Dan Gilvezan will take to the stage to give an exclusive reading from his biography “Bumblebee And Me” and will then take part in a Q&A Panel talking about his books!

We may even have a few other things mixed in as well as all of this! For those of you who don’t have a copy of “Bumblebee And Me” yet, Dan will be bringing some over to the convention with him but supplies of these will be limited so if you want to get your copy before the convention to get it signed by Dan, you can order it from Amazon at

As we have said, this night is EXCLUSIVE for weekend ticket holders but if you have only booked for the Saturday or Sunday then you can upgrade your tickets. Just email us at for more details on how you can do this.

If you have not already booked for the convention, tickets are still available and they can be purchased from the site at: but they are selling faster than ever this year and ticket sales are far ahead of where we were this time last year so book NOW to avoid disappointment as we do have a cut-off of 1,000 attendees this year! Pre-registrations close on TUESDAY 30TH JULY 2013 so hurry to book your tickets for what is set to be the biggest and best Auto Assembly ever!

We have a great guest line-up this year and as well as Dan Gilvezan we are being joined by Neil Kaplan (RiD Prime) and Steve Blum (TF: Prime Starscream), as well as comic guests Simon Furman, James Roberts, Andrew Griffith, Nick Roche, Alex Milne, Jim Sorenson and many more!
