  1. XIII went to Amsterdam...

    As a Dutchman I always wondered how the photoshoot queues would work in Amsterdam. As expected then haha. Good write up, glad you had a good time.
  2. Pre-order service?

    They responded on the Showmasters Pre Orders Facebook page yesterday that there will be a pre order service one and they are currently in the process of updating the shop.
  3. Saturday Experience

    Oh and for the first time ever I won a silent auction, £20 for a signed Tom Skerritt/Alien 8x10, very happy with that as I missed the LFCC pre-order deadline this year .
  4. Saturday Experience

    I agree that it seemed quieter than previous years. I am not sure if it just seemed that way as the spaces between the stalls had been increased (good move, no more bottlenecks! ) but I didn't see much of a queue at the doors at any point of the day (i walked in and out a few times throughout the day, I never had to queue). I met Colette Hiller, Shauna MacDonald, Tom Hopper, Staz Nair and Imogen Boorman (I skipped Mark Rolston and Jenette Goldstein as I had met them before and I was on a budget although I am contemplating whether I should get a 'Jenette in T2' signed photo tomorrow...). All these guests were really nice and talkative and all of them allowed pictures as well. The Aliens talk was fun and very, very busy. One of the busiest talks I have ever seen in Glasgow but there always seems to be a lot of fan support for the Alien franchise in Glasgow for whatever reason. I was glad the opportunity for a triple Aliens shoot was provided and I am happy with the way my photo turned out. Unfortunately the Alien shoot clashed with the Tom Hopper/Staz Nair GoT talk and I missed the first ten minutes of it but again a very enjoyable and funny panel. I have just looked up these Le Labo scents and seen the prices, I think I will stick with Hugo Boss I will be back tomorrow, I will definitely meet Ian Beattie and Valene Kane.
  5. 30 minutes is standard for free talks.
  6. If I remember correctly the Goonies double shoot last year was only announced on the Friday before the show.
  7. Some pretty cool late additions!
  8. Who of the Hother Rebels in the top picture is Alan? I had this photo signed by Rune Vindenes in Newcastle a couple of years ago, will be great to add another autograph.
  9. Preorders. How to?

    Looks like Glasgow has now been added
  10. Will there be a pre-order service for this show through the regular site showmasterssales.com? I believe there was one last year. I am not able to attend this event but I've just seen Michael Dudikoff has been announced for this one
  11. Monica Keena

    I met her at EMS in 2011 but the photos for that particular show have never been put online for some reason.
  12. Hotels

    I stayed at the City Continental Kensington on the Saturday night. I paid £69 for a single room with continental breakfast and a 20-minute walk to the venue so I didn't have to worry about public transport on the Sunday morning. It was very clean with a modern bathroom but very small (as is the norm when booking a single room in London). Using comparison websites I usually find a decent room at an affordable rate. Would never stay in a dive just to save 10 or 20 quid.
  13. Thoughts about the weekend?

    This one was a bit close after LFCC for me so I didn’t have the budget I wanted so I didn’t meet too many guests but it was all about quality this time! As a fan of The Goonies it was great to meat Sean Astin and Ke Huy Quan. The both signed a Goonies poster for me and Ke Huy signed a Temple of Doom lobby card as well. I had photo shoots with both. Unfortunately the group photo was announced only hours after I had bought the single photo shoots and had to give that one a miss but the photos turned out great, even though I was in it! Loved Sean’s talk as well, glad I decided to pay the £10. I ordered a pre-order autograph of Margot Kidder when she was doing a show down south last year so I only had a photo shoot done and she seemed a very nice lady. She came across very well at her talk as well. I went on the Sunday only (standard entry). I don’t think I’ve ever seen the Glasgow show as busy as this on the Sunday. Nevertheless, the vibe was still pretty laid back and the photo shoots did not seem too rushed this time, all guests seemed to be enjoying themselves! Great to see how this event has grown from its humble beginnings in 2007!
  14. Sourcing 8x10's

    If you don't mind B&W try these guys. I have ordered from them quite a few times. They are in the States but when ordering several photos postage isn't too bad. Also these are original press photos and therefore collectable and the guests tend to like these old press photos. They look great signed with blue or silver sharpie. http://outlet.historicimages.com/search?type=product&q=alien+nation+pierpoint
  15. Sean Astin & Ke Huy Quan Photo

    I'm going on the Sunday but bought my single photo shoot tickets today. Disappointed this was announced so late!
