  1. unfortunately that would take time for the admins to actually do that, so it's more safer just to say on facebook or twitter that so and so guest has reconfirmed or hasn't been able to reconfirm yet.
  2. Hopefully with cons resuming around September time, I'm hoping that there'll be smiling faces at LFCC. I know I'm gonna probably cry for joy because of the fact that it's been near 4 years since I attended a LFCC! Though even if there are no rules on masks, I'm still gonna wear one, just to be safe than sorry even though I've had my 2nd jab a couple weeks ago!
  3. I presume that SM are still going by the old rule for reconfirmed guests of "if they're on the site, they've reconfirmed"?
  4. Even IF you've had both doses or the one shot dose, you're still not immune technically, it's only sixty percent for AstraZenica and 88% for Pfizer and that's from the news, you can catch COVID19 but you won't suffer the effects, however you will still be able to be a carrier. My problem is, is that it's getting more and more symptomatic via the new Indian variant and I have a gut feeling that if people haven't had their 2nd shot or gone for the newer 1 shot dose, it's gonna have more cases than what we had before...but, there's the thing, I COULD be wrong, I could be totally wrong!
  5. Yes they do. They're all through the NHS app ONCE you have had your 2nd COVID19 vaccination. If you want the paper version; you can call 119 (I think it was the number) and request for it to be sent to you, you can't do it through your GP though. Also, with the case of Alice Cooper, there's more than likely now confirmation that he is going to be attending LFCC as this is on his official youtube page - "Alice Cooper is back! Catch Alice on tour this Fall with special guest, former Kiss guitarist Ace Frehley. Celebrating the release of his new album, Detroit Stories, Alice will hit the road starting September 17 in Atlantic City, NJ with stops in Boston, Chicago, Detroit, Nashville and more - culminating in a performance at the 2021 Shaky Knees Festival in Atlanta! VIP Tickets and Presales available tomorrow, Tuesday, May 18th at 10am local time with code SICKTHINGS. Tickets go on sale this Friday, May 21st at 10am local time"
  6. Unfortunately like I said in a different post, you won't get refunds for the tickets even if you request vouchers, because the con is going on as proceeded. The only way you'd get a refund or vouchers would be IF LFCC/Showmasters have to cancel due to government guidelines.
  7. Unfortunately you'd be wishing until you're blue in the face. COVID stuff will be the new norm. Hell, my mom said that she wouldn't be surprised to see the UK have a covid vaccination every year IF it doesn't go away. IF you want to go on holiday abroad, you NEED a certification that you have been vaccinated against covid. This is pretty much the same as anywhere else that requires you to get vaccinated i.e. Egypt or anywhere that has a huge chance of catching something i.e. Yellow Fever. Masks will be mandated for at least in my rough estimation about three years at least. America is doing one where IF you have been vaccinated, you are allowed to not wear a mask UNLESS you're in a heavy populated crowd such as football/sports games, concerts, theatres, cinemas, theme parks, shopping malls etc. Track and Trace is the same as mask mandates, it NEEDS to be kept in check and used all the time because of clubs/pubs/restaurants being forced to close their premises down due to outbreak of COVID because someone came in, didn't bother to sign in with the track and trace who had symptoms of coronavirus. I KNOW you don't like it, but for gods sake, you need to understand that this is gonna be the new "normal" for years and years to come. This isn't like the flu or cold, this can have serious repercussions on your health. Think of it this way, IF a guest suddenly got a bout of coronavirus, do you think for one second that he/she would want to attend london film and comic con or collectormania or other conventions? I don't think they would. Do you think that he/she would be willing to pay £1400 to stay in a hotel for ten days to quarantine his/herself in order to make sure he/she does not have any more symptoms and then suddenly finding out that they have symptoms which means they would have to pay another £1400 AND miss london film and comic con or collectormania etc? I don't think they would. Phew, now that's off my chest, I really do have to apologise if that sounded like a rant.
  8. They are still up on the website and on the tickets, so I would say they're still confirmed. However; I'm meeting - Sacha Dhawan - getting my doctor who monopoly board signed by him. Christopher Eccleston - same as Sacha Dhawan's auto, getting him to sign my doctor who monopoly board. Ernie Hudson - getting my Ghostbusters LP signed by him (and if I feel confident enough, may get another one for him to sign my Spirit Halloween proton pack! ...idk though lol XD) Clark Gregg - I don't know what I'm gonna get him to sign. I'm gonna see if I can get the Marvel Phase 1 collectors edition for him to sign. Ming-Na Wen - same as Clark Gregg, though I may get two autos and get a Mulan poster for her to sign since she did the voice of Fa Mulan. Meat Loaf - getting him to sign my MEAT LOAF: Hits Outta Hell LP. Sam Humphries - getting him to sign my Greatest Showman LP. Alice Cooper - getting him to sign his "Alice Cooper: Classiks" LP. That's all at the moment, hopefully there'll be more confirmed that I'll want to get.
  9. I missed the opportunity to get his auto last time, I am definitely NOT missing this, especially should showmasters get back Matt Smith, Peter Capaldi and David Tennant again!
  10. Unfortunately you won't be able to get a refund if you're unable to go, IF the con gets cancelled or postponed, then you'll get a refund.
  11. at least it's not "Abby-Normal" XD
  12. Yes, IF a guest should cancel due to reasons like i.e. conflicting events (i.e. new TV show/movie being shot and he/she is in there or in the case of Alice Cooper that he has a tour coming up for example), then you will be reimbursed for said photo shoot, the only time a ticket will not be reimbursed, is when you have bought a ticket for the comic con itself and the con goes on and you're unable to get there. It's usually only when the con cancels that they give two options - 1) tickets will be reimbursed back to your primary source of funding i.e. bank account or paypal and 2) the tickets will still be valid for the rescheduled comic con.
  13. So it's been a while (I think lol) since I've been here, had my COVID vaccine jab, so yay for me since I'm needle phobic (I've gotta go back for the 2nd dose on 11/06/2021), which will clear me for hopefully going to LFCC in July. Also from what I've been reading, is that the government will actually be starting covid-passports (like beta testing...sorry, computer garb there) and a "traffic light" system, which will show which areas will be possibly locked down and which will be able to go on. According to what was told, this is starting mid this month with Liverpool and I THINK (don't quote me on it cos I may have gotten the 2nd city wrong) London starting covid-passports and traffic light system ready for when football stadiums reopen among other things. I wouldn't blame SM if they were to ask for the covid-passport as a way of seeing if you have had been vaccinated. This would more than likely be able to allow people to not social distance as much, but also not have to rely on wearing a mask IF they had been vaccinated. (I know that you CAN be asymptomatic with COVID19 and give it to others but not actually suffer from it yourself IF you are vaccinated).
  14. I completely agree. I think they could shelf it until next year.
  15. I don't think the prices will go up. I think imo that there won't be as many diamond passes available as well as limiting ticket amounts since I do still believe that you're technically due to the virus pandemic supposed to have half, so say 200,000 go, you're only allowing in 100,000. With it being at the Olympia Exhibition Center, I can't really see it being completely open i.e. both levels for guests and shops. I think it'll be one level/one size only.
  16. NOT only that, but the fact that the guests would have to pay around £1700 to stay quarantined in a hotel room when they land for ten days possibly wouldn't make them want to come over from America just to spend around fourteen days in the united kingdom just quarantining for ten, then the other three for LFCC etc.
  17. Tbh I'm not trusting what the government say. It all comes down to whether or not people adhere to the rules like rule of six until that's finished or people who do not wear masks or socially distance themselves or even worse to say - spend all the time outside in parks having picnics with more than one person! At the end of the day, it's down to everybody, but that's damn well fine enough with me saying it, but for me to say "wear a mask, social distance, get your vaccine when you can!", there's always gonna be a bunch more who are like "Shut up, don't tell us what to do, we don't want to wear masks, we don't want to social distance, we're fine with hanging out in a group of more than six!" etc etc.
  18. Thing is, and here's the other part to it. I don't think showmasters would risk having social distancing in LFCC, because that would only really imo mess everything up because you've gotta stand two meters away from everybody. Not only that, but the fact would be that you would have to sit in designated seats next to ones that would say "CHAIR NOT IN USE!!"
  19. I think with being optimistic, we're all gonna have to see how this goes and IF it does get cancelled, then unfortuantely it's the way it happens with the pandemic still going on. I cannot see the pandemic going away for a good couple of years tbh...maybe 2025/2026.
  20. For this year, I haven't quite sorted out what ones to do that are the two days, but one day I will be going as a Ghostbuster from The Video Game (my own character) with proton pack, ghost trap (I will have one hooked to my belt and one in the mobility scooter!), PKE meter and Goggles. If you catch me, do come and say hello! So Friday I really don't know, I may just turn up in my normal clothing, Saturday will be Ghostbusters and Sunday might be power rangers/sentai or something...idk yet lol
  21. I disagree; I think the fact that showmasters may more likely have to either cancel or postpone. Another convention (cannot name it as it's against SMs policies) has postponed until november!
  22. ^ This Thing is, is that not many people are able to get out of their homes due to this new rules that are going on starting tomorrow (i.e. pubs and salons are to be permenantly closed, resturants are staying open), and they're not allowed to go anywhere unless it's a specific reason i.e. hospital appointment, dentist appointment, working away from home etc. I think honestly you are correct, nobody from the US are gonna be willing to spend two weeks self isolating and then come to the comic con. Especially with what's going on over in America with the election (Trump-Pence vs Biden-Harris) and the whole "black lives matter" and crap going on still with protests. Edit: Also, was told by my friend that her flight is gonna be cancelled tomorrow because of the new restriction rules put in place.
  23. Apparently from what's going on is that anything massive event wise i.e. LFCC, Collectormania etc will not be back up and running until next year. I can't see the likes of pubs/clubs reopening quickly if they have to place the rules of COVID-19 in like 2 meters apart etc, I honestly can see everything media and stuff we do like cinemas, conventions, shows, pubs/clubs will be reopening not at least until 2021.
  24. Just a heads up peeps, dunno if you listened to the radio, but apparently the government has put a stricter procedure with people coming in from united states or anywhere else in the world that they MUST quarantine themselves for two weeks or face a £1000 fine if they do not.
