Thats a good question, most of those who go around at bigger events do it for charity.

I think there might even be something else on the same weekend.

There might be one or two I suppose.

I'd imagine someone with a eg a Stormtrooper costume might get an extra thrill wearing it at Elstree, where stormtroopers have actually walked!

Guest/price list in first post has been updated.

Regarding the costume question I am not sure but I wouldn't expect it to be a huge aspect of the show as space is limited.

That's a shame? That usually makes these events even better

i suppose the problem being the limit set by the studio on how many people can be inside if they got people in it would of meant less ticket sales and more dissapointed people

I'm going to be taking along a few Lightsabers seeing it was at Elstree where they were first ignited. It will be somewhat cool emerging from Elstree and Borehamwood clutching a Lightsaber. But thats possibly as far as I will go cosplay wise

The TWO Greatest Fanboy moments for me was meeting Mr. Spielberg on the 8th of January 2012 and Kermit the Frog on the 13th of June 2012- please don't ask me which was my favourite meeting as it would be too difficult to choose. :)

Any more guest news now? Like actors from the movies?

No more actors and I doubt we'll see anything more now

Thats quite true, I'm surprised that Warwick hasnt been mentioned, hes ALWAYS fun at events but not sure what hes up to at late would be nice to see him there and the same with Mike Edmonds also Jeremy Bulloch I did see in the press release a few days ago that any Guests interested should contact Jason so maybe they are in last minute discussions over this.

i think that also people may have already allocated their money for specific people or travelling etc and what with the enormity of the Auction list we may see some multi billionaires attending lol

Lets hope so i would like to think as this was advertised as such a important event and with ticket sale starting at 60 upwards that we would see more actors than camera men?

To be honest I wrongly predicted about a month or so ago that the big guest announcement may have been Carrie Fisher - people on FB etc kept predicting Harrison (never gonna happen) Ford or even George Lucas to attend.

Will be nice to see Kenny, Dave and Rusty again but quite possibly Showmasters will pull something out of the hat between now and next week - glad that we have Norman Reynolds and Colin Skeaping.
