  1. We had a couple of stand outs and they cancelled. How can show masters justify the price increase. First con we had Brian Blessed, Robert Englund, Lance Henrickson and even some big comic names like James W Barr. This time we got nothing like that, not even a Dr Who
  2. I did not post this, wtf? There's already a few topics and posts about this on the forum. I also sent you an e-mail explaining. Please check the e-mail you are registered with. Thanks QS, as long as it's in hand.
  3. How about Garrett Wang or Jonathon Frakes for Cardiff too?
  4. Yeah, but you can sell them to other fans, or on a secondary market. A can't think of many events where you can't sell them on or transfer them at all?
  5. Been wanting her to make an appearance back on the scene here for ages! A much sought after sig to add to my poster. :)
  6. He signed for free last time but he also offered COA's to go with whatever you had signed which were £3, these he also signed. Completely optional but a nice addition I thought. As far as his artwork, he had limited edition signed prints which ranges between £25-£40 if I remember right, and his original hand drawn sketches in his portfolio was £100+ for some of The Crow stuff.
  7. Is he attending all weekend, it says above Saturday, but photo shoots are for Saturday and Sunday? Apologies if this has been confirmed elsewhere already.
  8. Met him previously and he was really chatty, signed my The Crow Graphic novel and I bought a nice lithographic print of some artwork, spoke for a while about the new stories he's involved in, really nice guest to meet.Good to see him back.
  9. Altogether, including gold passes, travel, accommodation, food, 4 x photo shoots, 9 autographs, 1 Game of thrones screening ticket (which I gave away to a girl I didn't know) 2 T-shirts, 2 books, and 1 entry into a raffle... £1530. Woulda been more if Natalie Dormer and Peter Mayhew hadn't cancelled.
  10. yeah I probably was then, I only started counting as I was curious as to what he had as it was obviously gonna cost a lot, but it was just multiples of various images. I doubt they were even selling them all at the show. I don't have a problem with somebody wanting to earn a living and do well for themselves, but when it's maybe stopping someone who's come to enjoy a once in a Lifetime opportunity to meet a guest they admire, it just doesn't seem fair. We've all paid to get there and get in, I just think everyone should get a fair chance, and I appreciate it doesn't happen for everybody but de
  11. I was in the very first few people to meet Ian on Sunday morning,once he arrived he seemed in good spirits, right up until the first person in the queue pulled out literally a pile of photos (I counted up to 30) for him to sign. It was obvious he was a dealer and you could see Ian weren't best pleased about it, yet nobody from SM said a word, in fact they were joking about it with him. Fortunately after he left Ian was ok again and was a pleasure to meet, but when your snaked shoulder to shoulder in a small box with no air con and you've just handed over a fair amount of money, while someone's
  12. Yeah I think you can only buy one if you've had something signed and they stick it on for you to prove its genuine. I would be very surprised if u can pick these stickers anywhere else, they say "Authentic Stan Lee Excelsior approved" I guess it's as good as a COA. I thought it was a nice addition anyway.
  13. At the end of his table there was someone from his group putting them on, this was Saturday, you did have to pay £5 but I'm glad I got one.
  14. My favourite guest was one I hadn't originally intended to meet, and I'm so glad I did, Milo Ventimiglia. I had decided I would surprise my sister and try and get a personalised pic from him as she loves the dude but was too ill to attend, when I met him after handshakes and introductions I asked if he would mind signing "to Lisa" and I explained she was going through a bit of a rough time lately and she was a big fan, he instantly looked concerned and asked what was wrong, I explained and he said of course he would, then just as he was about to start writing he stopped and looked at me and
  15. He was really nice, took the Time to introduce himself to me and my girlfriend (as if he needed to!), shake our hands, and asked where I would like him to sign my Return of the Jedi picture. He complimented on my "fight for the Empire" T-shirt which was cool. No rushed signature, very polite and friendly, great guest.
  16. Will I regret saying "me"? ahh the murder mystery dude, if only all crew were as jovial and friendly as yourself.
  17. I agree, none of it was Stan Lee's fault, hope I'm still as sprightly if I ever make it to 92! And in the end I just felt like he should just be allowed to go have a rest and not push him so much, at the end of the day it would be great for everyone to meet him but surely his welfare comes first. The comic gold pass being created purely based on his appearance was originally a good idea I thought, yet I coulda done exactly the same with a normal gold. It just didn't live up to its promotion.
  18. I always go gold, but with the promise of a VIP drinks reception/meet and greet with Stan Lee, and exclusive items in the goodie bag, I chose the comic gold. No exclusive items at all, despite there being some limited exclusive items being sold (one being a stan lee celebration book limited to 250, maybe that coulda been included) and the VIP meet and greet turned into a standard on stage q and a. Don't get me wrong I was in no false hope of having some sit down chat with the man, in fact after the long days the guy had I think it was in his best interest the way it was finally done, but if th
  19. It was certainly unusual but I guess I had a fun time. A very unique event. Maybe it'll become a bigger thing eventually. Tony Head was great. I attended the meet and greet with Stan Lee but left after that and before the actual awards started, now I'm intrigued to what it actually involved!??
