  1. Many thanks for the Heads Up on the way Stan Signs. Much as I like Stan and I would love to have his Autograph if he, as TooTall puts it " signs like the Shatner " I will not be treated in this way and wont be getting anything signed. For me William Shatner was the worst experience of my Autograph Collecting life and I have promised myself never will I put myself through this AGAIN. While I have nothing against William but the guy never even looked at me never mind a Hello ! I don't expect a 5 min chat with anyone how ever I at least expect a Hello , sign , Thanks etc may be a shake of the hand and not to be treated like I'm a Nobody or that I'm not even there which is how I felt I was treated by Wlliam as there where so many other people wanting to see him. I don't see why I have to put up with this I know there are other people who are looking to meet him to and why not Stan's a Legend but at what cost ? Well that would be at my own experience and I wont do that. Although I do feel that someone should work out how much time each person can have with him and put a Cap on how many people can see him. Once all those tickets are given out well tough you should have got there earlier. I mean if everyone had say 30 seconds with him I feel this is more than enough time to have a pleasant experience ie for the person to look up say Hello sign and thanks bye. Is that to much to ask ? And why do I have to give my Item to be signed to some one else ? Why cant I hand it to Stan myself ? This reminds me of the first time I met Carrie Fisher yes she signed my photo and was a very nice lady said Hello and looked at me but she didn't TOUCH my photo ! Yes believe it or not its True ! Didn't touch it once I had to hand it to the guy next to her who held it down for her to sign with her hand in the air Bazaar I know she didn't like most people rest her signing hand on the photo. How ever the 2nd time I met her she did ! So I feel there should be a Cap on the tickets. After all when the Hobbits where at Collectormania for the very first time all the Tickets where given out but at no time did I feel rushed with any of them ( Yes I was Lucky I got to see all four of them but I did get there early and no not over night lol ) . Blimey Billy even stood up for me to show just how tall he really is now thats an experience I will take to my grave but with William Shatner I would rather forget and I don't want that with Stan Lee. Does anyone else agree or am I alone on this subject ? I agree with you to an extent, there is nothing worse than a conveyor belt signing BUT on the otherhand I get why they have to be like this sometimes, that said though there is no excuse for rudeness from guests a quick look up and hello are all some of us need, Shannen Doherty was appalling she had hardly any queue and was just plain rude she took the pic from me whilst texting on her phone didn't reply to my hello and just shoved it back to me with a begrudging thanks, she is outright the worst person I have ever paid to meet. Maybe I'm too kind but I'd rather everyone got that much sought after autograph from Stan Lee rather than just a limited number who get the autograph and a conversation in my opinion if you want that talk with him then pay extra for the gold tickets which get meet and greets etc, there's a reason they're called signing events The meet and greet are fantastic from Stan, telling the old stories absolute legend. Been lucky enough to have been to my fair few and anyone going its a night to remember.

Does anyone else agree or am I alone on this subject ? I agree on some part. I don't see the problem on handing your item to someone else as this is often the case at other conventions as well. While the actor is busy with the person in front of you, you hand over your item to the assistent and he/she'll write down your name. Especially for bigger names this is a time saving thing and not one that takes away from the experience necessarily. I've handed over the items to each of the dwarves' assistants I've met, but that didn't mean they wouldn't give me a handshake or be very nice. I too have had a similar, bad experience with Shatner. It didn't get to me as much because I was getting the autograph for my dad (who's a big Star Trek fan), but I can honestly understand that to be treated that way by someone you like or admire is disappointing stuff (especially with that price). BUT, who's to say that it will be like that with Stan Lee? Sure, you may not have a minute to talk to him and your item will be handed over by an assistant. But that doesn't mean he won't be polite and say hi. Peter Dinklage was really busy last year and I don't think I even had 30 seconds, but he was very friendly and acknowledged you were there. Being very busy and slightly rushed doesn't have to take away from the experience, it just really depends on the guest. With Dinklage I had a massive conversation with him. I did had something like 14 things for him to sign so that takes time to get through.
  3. Totally agree with you. I can let you know that Stan wont personalise anything. I have got 1 thing personalised over my years doing some of his signings, mainly at Comic Con and New York. Dont forget Stan is in his 90s, he is great for that age and hopefully wont disappoint.
  4. I honestly don't mean to be flippant but how long is a piece of string? It's dependant on so many things... 1: How many people with access to the priority queue leave it until Sunday? 2: What time you get there? 3: How many people are in the queue in front of you that want Stan? 4: How long you can stay? 5: How fast Stan Lee signs? These are all things we don't know. It could be he's open queue by mid afternoon on Sunday because he signs like the Shatner, it could be we only get up to VT 800 and you got to the show at 9:30am and got 801. It's just impossible to say. There are too many variables. All I can say is the earlier you get in the queue, and the longer you can stay, the higher your chances of getting into the queue gets. So I would certainly get early-bird to maximise your chances. I can answer 5 for you. Stan is a machine when it comes to signings. I have done maybe 6 signings with the guy and he can motor when needed. It is not a case of walk up have a 5 min chat get your stuff signed. It is hand your stuff to the handler and get it signed and move on.
  5. Comics are a different kettle of fish. I understand that SNES games and boxing gloves been overpriced, and totally agree stall holders will overprice as they know someone will forget something to sign. With comics it is different, prices remain the same. I can assure you that Stan Lee books,comics etc wont be overpriced.
  6. Stan Lee is a different kettle of fish to your film celebrity you get at LFCC. Stan created and co created a lot of characters in the comic world. Which in turn means you could get an Amazing Fantasy costing you £1000s or you could get a modern comic that came out last week signed. The price at the convention will be exactly the same as online or if you go to your LCS. The only thing that might be expensive is a variant comic that has been produced for the show but as I no none that are being produced it is a pointless point. They wont sell anything if they have a huge markup as stan did what is basically the whole of the marvel comic product range. So what type of items were you trying to buy that were overpriced?
  7. No they wont No offence but I find that hard to believe from what I saw last year. Didnt see Stan Lee there last year....
