Guido Guidi To Attend Auto Assembly 2006!

Written by Big Bot on December 21, 2005 | Auto Assembly,Conventions,News | Tags: ,

Auto Assembly 2006 is pleased to announce that, courtesy of sponsors TFauctions.com, we will be joined by renowned comic artist Guido Guidi for Auto Assembly 2006 on Saturday 3rd June 2006 for the fifth annual Auto Assembly convention in Birmingham, England…

Guido will be at Auto Assembly 2006 and it will be his first ever UK convention appearance. He is joining us thanks to a wonderful sponsorship deal from the Transformers auction website www.tfauctions.com and they will be bringing Guido over to the event. Guido will be in attendance to meet fans, sign autographs, will have a large selection of his original artwork for sale and will be joining our other comic guests on stage for a Q&A session which will include other comic luminaries such as Simon Furman and Andrew Wildman.

Guido signed a deal with TF Auctions earlier this year to make his artwork available online exclusively through TF Auctions, no longer selling his work through eBay and has recently been listing a large amount of original toy box art, G1 Dreamwave comic artwork, pages from the comics included with assorted Armada toys and new IDW cover artwork.

Following extensive negotiations, TFAuctions have now been officially endorsed by Hasbro and has launched it’s brand new look on 21st December 2005. The site continues to provide an alternative to eBay for Transformers fans looking to buy and sell Transformers toys and collectibles. The site has it’s listings broken down into specific ranges to make items easier to find and has sections dedicated to Guido Guidi and more recently Wildfur (Simon Furman/Andrew Wildman).

In addition to Guido, we will also be joined from the comic world by Simon Furman, Andrew Wildman, Lee Sullivan, Geoff Senior, Simon Williams and Jason Cardy and our guest of honour for the convention is none other than David Kaye – the voice of Megatron in Beast Wars, Beast Machines, Armada, Energon and Cybertron!! As with all conventions, our guests are appearing subject to work and personal commitments. We are also in talks with further guests and we hope to be making further announcements shortly.

Auto Assembly 2006 will be taking place on Saturday 3rd June 2006 and once again it will be held at the Clarendon Suites on the Hagley Road, Birmingham, England. Ticket prices are £15 for adults and £12 for children/students etc. (the price increase from AA2005 being due to the guest costs).

As well as the guest talks, there will be dealers from across the UK, video screenings, toy and art displays, competitions, a charity auction and raffle, a fan area, a bar open all day(!) and much more besides! Auto Assembly 2005 was the biggest ever Transformers convention in Europe with over 400 attendees and Auto Assembly 2006 is looking set to be even bigger!

Full details on Auto Assembly 2006 as well as downloadable booking forms are available from the website at www.autoassembly.org.uk and you can visit the TF Auctions site at www.tfauctions.com
