  1. I'm hoping it won't clash with filming for Discovery, because otherwise I think chances of me coming are rather small (I'll probably have met most of the guests). Discovery: James Frain, Doug Jones, Michelle Yeoh, Shazad Latif, Anthony Rapp, Chris Obi, Kenneth Mitchell, Rainn Wilson Main cast other ST shows: Kate Mulgrew, Jennifer Lien, Scott Bakula, John Billingsley, Jolene Blalock New movies: Zachary Quinto, Simon Pegg, Jennifer Morrison, John Cho, Winona Ryder, Alice Eve, Sofia Boutella (not sure all of these actually would do conventions, but more likely than Saldana, Pine and Elba for example). Others: Kirstie Alley, John Larroquette, Catherine Hicks, Kim Cattrall, Malcolm McDowell, Jacqueline Kim, Whoopi Goldberg, Alfre Woodard, Neal McDonough, Dwight Schultz, Donna Murphy, Stephanie Niznik, Ron Perlman, Alan Dale, Jude Ciccolella, Michelle Forbes, April Grace, Lanei Chapman, Raphael Sbarge, Rick Worthy, Penny Johnson, Ken Marshall, William Lucking, Daniel Dae Kim and especially Daniel Davis!
  2. I've heard other people speak quite negatively about him as well, but I've met him 3 times now and he's always been a perfect gent.
  3. The only real upside - in my opinion - is that you get in a little earlier to get VQ tickets for the diamond pass guests. The queues for all the other guests were really doable (especially on Friday and Sunday). With the exception of John Cleese, I even got most diamond guests with a regular ticket. Biggest downside is the amount of sleep I had to give up on to get there early. But of course, it's up to you. If you want the weekend to be more relaxed and less stressful, a gold pass might be just the thing.
  4. I'd love to meet Jasmine Guy and Laura Harris. Not that I wouldn't like meeting Mandy Patinkin, but from everything I've heard so far he seems to be quite an acquired taste. I can't imagine he'd ever sign up for doing a convention (but Showmasters is definitely allowed to prove me wrong).
  5. They're great. I've noticed that Rob Paulsen, Maurice LaMarche and Jess Harnell frequently do American conventions. So they should be a possibility. And Callum Blue from Dead Like Me is British, so... :)
  6. All for a Hellboy 2 and Jurassic Park reunion! Adding to the list in terms of TV shows: 25th anniversary: Walker Texas Ranger, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers (just for Amy Jo Johnson), the X-Files, Animaniacs and the Nanny 20th anniversary: That '70s Show, Charmed (Alyssa Milano!) 15th anniversary: Dead Like Me, Nip/Tuck, Carnivale And even though Battlestar Galactica's first season starts in 2004, the mini-series was 2013. So that's not cheating! 10th anniversary: Sons of Anarchy, Terminator the Sarah Connor Chronicles, True Blood, Fringe, Legend of the Seeker, Leverage Yeah, I know most of these will not be celebrated at LFCC as they're not really typical convention guests, but one can hope :)
  7. I was rather surprised not to have seen a topic on him. Lot of respect for the guy that he turned up on Saturday. He looked quite tired and is probably working long days on Fantastic Beasts 2, but did his utmost best to meet all the fans on Saturday (even personalising and doing pictures). Definitely one of my top meets this weekend and a very pleasant surprise guest!
  8. Sad news indeed
  9. Sometimes because they just don't feel like it. Hell, sometimes the convention even cancels a guest because they didn't sell well enough/didn't budget right or the guest cancels because the convention didn't fulfil their promises. Quite sure the latter two aren't applicable to Showmasters though.
  10. About 20+ of the guest. Including all the Game of Thrones guests I haven't met yet (68 down, still 56 to go).
  11. I spend 45 minutes on Friday being send from one closed cloakroom to the other, even the ones stated at the map. No one seemed to have an idea what was going on. Very frustrating, luckily I got to hand in the items at the YALC floor (didn't try at first since the non-YALC ticket holders aren't supposed to be up there before 11).
  12. I know the bigger actors get the most credit, but James Dodd was also one of my top meets this year. Very lovely man. I was a bit curious to hear how many of the scenes he did (he shared the physical role of Krauss with John Alexander), but didn't ask in the end I hope there will be a Hellboy reunion next year, that would be amazing! I've been hoping for years they would at Showmasters
  13. I'm trying to block out the too large amount of money I spend. If I don't remember it, it didn't happen
  14. I agree with most of what you said. It was a lot busier than previous years and got very little done on Saturday (so glad I did the Friday as well for the first time), while previous years I got pretty much everything done on the Saturday. I will say that I do think some prices are getting too high. Not for Cumberbatch, but so many guests that are in the 40 - 65 pounds range. Natalie Dormer and Conleth Hill asked twice what Peter Dinklage asked a couple of years ago. I know "everything gets more expensive", but by this rate conventions will soon become unaffordable. I've heard quite a few people say that they spend the same amount as last year, but for less guests. Loved it this year and got everyone I wanted to meet except John Cleese, but without diamond/gold I did have to sacrifice a lot of sleep xD Looking forward to next year! Though I fear I should probably already start saving up for that.
  15. Can't speak for LFCC, but I met the three of them at another convention and they were very loose and tons of fun. Especially Mark and Tommy (but the wine might've had something to do with that).
