  1. ..that's definatley going to disappoint a lot of people. I def shall not be attending now.
  2. I don't think anyone here is looking to belittle the show, in fact from reading the posts here were are all regular visitors to Showmasters events and in some cases have been supporting their shows at MK and elsewhere since the very beginning. Showmasters have given us the chance to meet many great guests over the years. Whilst you are never going to please everybody, I think the fact so many people have posted this time shows that for whatever reason this line-up isn't of the usual quality we have come to expect and I think the general feeling is one of disappointment. I think a number of people have posted similar posts in that they really want to attend, they want the event to be a success etc, but certainly for many people who have to spend a lot of money travelling to come to an event, you really need to have at least 2/3 guests that you really want to meet to justify the expense related to it. If you have a couple of tent pole guests that you are prepared to travel to meet then whilst you are there you will pick up autos etc from some of the other guests, but these guests themselves don't necessarily justify all the expense that goes with attending a show. Over the last few weeks alone I've met some great guests at DS3 and the Winter LFCC and had a great time, but for the first time ever there is no one amongst the Film and Media guests that I want enough to justify the costs associated with getting to the event. yep, the people on here are not posting because they want the show to fail, it is quite clear to anyone that just the opposite is true. The fans here have a love for the MK show, it's one of my favourites, and it is disappointing that it appears that it's being neglected. No-one is saying that SM are "obliged" or owe us the attendees anything, but given the fact that the MK shows prior to this have had a much more diverse, fuller and at times fantastic guest list it isn't unreasonable to expect something similar. The fans have spent money on hotels, travel, booked time off work etc with that in mind, and are feeling a little let down it sounds like to me.
  3. The cosplayers add a wonderful dimension to any con and the costumes are amazing. You certainly won't be out of place no matter what happens. If I go with my 6 year old niece I'm sure she's going to be in awe of you and will no doubt ask you to pose with her for a pic if that's ok. :-)
  4. I usually agree with you on this one David, but for whatever reason I do think this guest line up is looking like one of the weakest at MK in a long time which is such a shame. Whilst I'd accept I have been going to these events for a long time, I don't think there's ever been a show at MK where we have been under 3 weeks away and there hasn't been at least 2/3 Film/Media guests I would want to meet.Yes it is upto the individual's personal taste, but the guest list does nothing to draw in a variety of fanbases, and has been said before many of the guests that are attending are really supporting/background actors. I'd take quality over quantity anyday, but I don't think this guest list gives us either at present.
  5. Yes they were, and there have been brilliant guests in subsequent years too. Somebody said we're moaning and knocking SM. I think there are just a lot of very disappointed people tbh. MK is one of those shows were because of its more relaxed nature, gives you more time to actually talk to the guests without being herded along. It's been a great experience for myself and many others in the past, so no surprise then that given the current line up the fans are hurting a little. Let's hope it improves over the coming fortnight 😊
  6. Who was there last year?The link below will give you an idea of previous MK guests..http://www.collectormania.com/previousguests/previousguests.html
  7. How strange it is that before the Summer LFCC people were discussing how crowded it would get, now we are talking about how quiet it might be. Lol! What a difference a guest list and a few months makes..
  8. I didn't attend the Winter LFCC or Autographica just before that due to so so guest lists, and this will probably be the next. Last year I went to all three and I really like the MK show, but it's another dull line up ( for me anyway) so even though it's free I doubt I'd go. Shame.
  9. And then for everybody that says that someone else would say "why didn't they just sell it as a package"...I think to be fair to Showmasters they would have looked at it from all sides and decided that it is the simplest way to just do it as it is. I think they said to do it like that was the only way they could obtain a diamond guest in the first place, basic economics I guess. At least it's a choice for us all to make.
  10. The missus and me were just saying the same thing the other day, but of course the numbers were up 25% at the Wlffcc according the SM so everything is hunky dory for them
  11. At the start of the year I'd have said it was a nailed on certainty I would be attending, but now I doubt I'd go unless the guest list improves. I've chosen not to attend the last two SM shows because of lack of interesting guests (to me personally), but i do really like the MK show and it would hurt not to go. I hope theylle some interesting announcements soon.
  12. Jurassic World released next year, could be Mr T Rex himself....:-)
  13. Yer, I was reading the other day a con in the US offered Harrison Ford their entire budget of $200k to speak for an hour and he wouldn't even consider it. All those hoping for him to be announced might be disappointed.
