  7. I bought special hanzo and genji pops. Have been tempted to buy the what if doctor Strange. My stepdad was a little bewildered when he spotted my collection lol. He wondered what the heck they were (also found out most of my pops should be coming in Jan next year. I hope so because I have literally nearly waited a year for my bakugo and todoroki pop funko's.....)
  8. New progress. I'm not really allowed to procrastinate today. Need to clear certain surfaces as we are talking on both of our neighbours cats due to certain curcumastances. I think I also need to dust. So I guess I'm probably on step 67 of room cleaning.
  9. Last week
  10. Finding out myself how bad the customer service is - wanting to preorder for a guest this coming Sunday at the Film Fair who’s not yet been added to the preorders list. I’ve emailed twice, no response, mentioned this on the forum, no mod assistance… That’s my money going begging -still I suppose it’s not as if we’ve had a raft of cancelled shows the last 18 months and Showmasters are in need of the money…
  11. ROCKY IV: ROCKY VS DRAGO - THE ULTIMATE DIRECTOR'S CUT (1985) I've always liked ROCKY IV but this so-called "Ultimate Director's Cut" was sooo unnecessary. It boasts 40 mins of new footage BUT the 'new footage' is mostly just alternate takes of the SAME OLD scenes. There is nothing significantly different here to justify MGM throwing money at Stallone to re-cut this film. The handful of brand new scenes that are there add very little; they just unnecessarily emphasize what we already know. The new cut also reduces the roles of Paulie and Rocky Jr and Mrs Drago especially very heavily, perhaps Stallone is still bitter at ex-wife Brigette Nielsen? It was claimed the Apollo Vs Drago fight was more brutal but all I noticed was a bloody nose and no doubt Stallone just re-inserted some alternate angles. Elsewhere, Rocky gives alternate speeches at the funeral, to his son in his room and after the fight. Also 'Gorbochev' has a different reaction at the end, Rocky meets the boxing committee, Drago gets an extra line ("Yes"), the ROCKY III recap at the start is re-cut and the final song is replaced. Despite the new 40 mins, the new cut is still 90 mins. The original film was fine as it was and didn't suffer from wonky editing unlike the new version. If Stallone wanted to re-cut one of his films it should have been COBRA (1986) which George P. Cosmatos ghost-directed for him and fell victim to studio interference. The director's cut of ROCKY IV is a major disappointment and I felt cheated; ALIENS, T2 or BLADE RUNNER it ain't.
  12. Brian Blessed being a popular guest, who usually takes him time with people, so would be a slow signer, it was inevitable he was going to a diamond guest. I would have gone diamond had i been there
  13. I wasn’t at the event due to personal circumstances, and personally not feeling comfortable with large gatherings at this time, so I don’t have all the facts. I recall one past LFCC where I eventually met one non-Diamond guest at a past LFCC in the afternoon because the Gold Pass holders were getting priority and the VQ number range remained the same throughout most of the day. Some of the posts/suggestions here reminded me of a much smaller event I went to that only had a few guests where the VIP ticket holders could meet the guests during a time slot in the morning, after which normal ticket holders could meet them if time allowed, or wait until they’re available in the afternoon. Although I don’t think it would work well for a large-scale event. On a side note, I have met Brian Blessed a couple of times in 2004, including a Collectormania that year.
  14. Most important consideration - as a valuable customer, can I request a plexiglass divider photoshoot even if the Celeb doesn't want one?!
  15. The Diamond Pass process is the convention equivalent of the penalty shootout. Not ideal, people will always moan about it - but no one has come up with a better solution. For Brian Blessed, see Meatloaf, Peter Capaldi etc. Every Con there's at least one DP guest who sees very little VQ action - that's why you if you can't face leaving the con without meeting a certain person, you should buy the DP.
  16. Funny as these shots are, did this issue not get noticed by the photographer at the time? I wasn’t there, so I don’t know if the background was added later as in a green screen shot, but can’t help but think if it wasn’t, something could have been said/done to avoid the issue. Personally I wouldn’t be happy with the photo - it’s funny but looks a bit ridiculous.
  17. Why don't you just find the con where everybody gets what they want, can afford it, and doesn't have to wait in any queue for more than 8 minutes. Copy that one.
  18. One organiser had a system where pre pay get priority before say, 12, and then after that the queue is open to everyone, but it depends on the efficiency in other area's, which by reports, wasn't brilliant this time so it was a bit of a mess.
  19. they have definitely started using them for more and more guests who really don't need to be on them for sure. The other problem this leads to as well is that it seriously devalues the Gold pass as the more guests on DP's the less that pass works for as well.
  20. From many comments I saw, pre pay unfortunately did not work at all well over the weekend elsewhere, they weren't given any priority for getting them and many pre pays were turned away from the queue and are now having to try and get refunds.
  21. As someone who often wears black t-shirts, it would have made for interesting shoots for me too.
  22. Pre pay usually means also booking a time slot for the person in question, and then it's up to the organisers to make sure they stick to the time frames. The first time I encountered this was when the new organisers took over Star Wars Celebration in the US a few years back, and for the most part, they were successful in getting the people through the lines on schedule. As for DP for Brian, I imagine because he was only there one day, from a few people I spoke to he's been on their list to meet for quite a while and get stuff signed, so I'm not surprised he was popular and many DP got sold.
  23. Ghostbusters: Afterlife was a very good and nostalgic belated sequel. Sure it would have been nice if it was made over 20 years ago but can't have everything. The scenes and storyline paid a great tribute to the original. If you are a fan you'll definitely like it.
  24. Yes it’s been discussed before that overselling DP passes has diminished their purpose to a certain extent and I’m in agreement with this. Even though you pay a premium, you end up in a line as long as a regular VQ line in any event and the VQ ticketed visitors will barely get a look in. A lot of people can’t afford the DP’s and even those who can might want to devote those funds to an A lister who’s more likely to be a sell out. No offence but surprised to hear Brian Blessed qualifies in that respect.
  25. Can a mod assist here? I've emailed the customer service address twice without reply as he’s still not been added as a preorder. Oddly Sylvia Sims has and I can’t see that she’s even attending.
  26. Robyn Lively (Teen Witch , Karate Kid 3 , Twin Peaks) Lashana Lynch (Captain Marvel , No Time To Die) Elisabeth Shue (Back to the Future 2-3 , The Saint , The Boys) Ana de Armas (No Time To Die) Nancy Valen (Baywatch , Hull High , Loverboy)
  27. how about all the guests that cancelled for november's lfcc?
