CD-ROMs and Auto Assembly

Written by Darren 'Starscream' Jamieson on February 15, 2011 | Auto Assembly |

A few years ago at the Transformers convention in Birmingham we all know and love by the name of Auto Assembly, TheTransformers.Net produced a CD-ROM to give away free in the goody bags. This CD-ROM contained contents such as a fan art gallery from Transformers fans from around the world, and a mini website – including web links.

Now, for this year’s convention we’ve been asked if we can produce something similar to offer as a freebie in the goody bags – but alas the CD-ROM idea isn’t going to work. You see, when we produced the one a few years ago I personally worked for a design agency in Cardiff, and had access to professional printers for the CD labels, free access to CD and DVD replication equipment to mass produce the CDs and a hefty discount on the actual CDs themselves.

This is no longer the case 🙁

However; this time we do have another idea that we can’t go into too much in depth now, but it involves the Internet, Twitter, Facebook, a forum and a competition prize. This weekend, in our forum meetup, we’ll be ironing out the details of our plan for this year’s Auto Assembly and, while it will no doubt include our ever present display of empty beer glasses, it should be something pretty exciting.

We’ll make details available of our maniacal scheme as soon as we can, and as soon as we’ve approved them with the powers that be, but we’re looking forward to a great Auto Assembly this year – and a great forum meet this weekend.
