Is anyone else curious about this? It really does have my attention. It's £70 in the store and it's a photo with Alien guests for £70

 

We have Tom Skerrit and Veronica Cartwright already attending with their photo shoots individually being £30 and £25.

 

So there's a good chance we could be getting another Alien guest but who? And this is what is getting me excited.  I think we know who it won't be, John Hurt (Rest in peace, you absolute legend) or Sigourney Weaver (The price would be too cheap for her to be included if compared to the last time she was over).

 

That only really leaves 3. Ian Holm but if he did come I think he would be too expensive to be included in this £70 photo due to his extensive and brilliant body of work over the years. He has Diamond Pass status written all over him.

 

So that means it could quite possibly be either Yaphet Kotto or Harry Dean Stanton, and if it is either of them that would just be, well, absolutely amazing.

As it's only £15 more expensive than the cost of both individual shoots, I'm thinking that there won't be a third guest but that was the extra cost needed to make the joint shoot possible. I could be wrong, but I'm not holding out any hope.

Interesting point but if it was just a double, I think they would have listed it as that rather than a group photo going by other photos listed in the store such as Doug Jones & Ron Perlman or Adrienne King & Robbi Morgan for example.

The term group photo is almost without exception used when the number of guests is not 110 percent set in stone yet.

 

It is not impossible it will end up a duo photo, but there could be another guest, yes. I am not involved with guest negotiations, so I have no idea if there's a "good chance" or not.

 

That really does not help much, right? :lol:

My only other guess which is actually more plausible than the ones I mentioned in my original post would be Roy Scammell as he attended LFCC a couple of years ago and would probably be the right price to make up the £70.

I agree with Wrong Name and I personally don't think there will be a third guest. Alien is my all time favourite movie, so I hope I am wrong!

 

I don't think adding either Yaphet Kotto or Harry Dean Stanton would be as cheap as £15, particularly as they are so rare in the UK. In fact, I am open to being corrected but I don't think either of them have ever attended a UK or possibly even a European convention before.

 

I hope I am wrong but I think the £15 is just the premium to get Tom and Veronica together.

Kuato could be right, Roy Scammell would make the most sense for the price! I would be happy with that anyway!

Maybe the price was set with the intention of it being John Hurt before the sad news.

I vaguely remember Yaphett Kotto being announced for Autographica some years back (Can't remember the exact year, it was long ago and I'm getting old :lol: ) but I believe he cancelled so I've always lived in the hope that he'd be announced for another event.

Yaphet also did a LFCC a few years ago unless im mistaken. In 2004 or so I think. I've always wanted to meet him, Ian and Harry so I had held out hope that at least one more of them would be announced. Much as I love Roy Scammell because of his work on Doctor Who, I absolutely would not want him in this photo.


Most wanted guests:

Mr. T - Ian Holm - Sean Bean - Peter Cullen - Frank Welker - David McCallum - Joanna Lumley - Ian McKellen - Jodelle Ferland

Just checked and yes he did appear at the 2004 LFCC show.

 

He was also £15 back then  :whistling:

In 2004 you could buy a small house for £15.

I don't think there'll be another guest for the photo but would love for Yaphet to be announced and proved wrong.
