  1. Dear Showmasters, Do you know yet if there are any plans to hold a film and comic con in Bournemouth again next year? It seems as though your interests in it have sadly dwindled somewhat as, despite the amount of people who attended, the one back in May was noticeably smaller than the previous ones. Bournemouth is a great town so it would be a shame if this event was no longer held here.
  2. Yep, that's correct! He first says the line as Alex Murphy when he is apprehending Emil after shooting the other guy shortly after arriving with Lewis at the steel mill, then later he says the same line again as Robocop to Emil at the gas station but this time he says: 'Dead or alive, YOU ARE coming with me'!!
  3. For those of you that did meet him, what was he like?!
  4. I used to despise Robocop 3 with a passion, but ever since I had the misfortune of experiencing the truly despicable, vile and completely unnecessary remake, I would quite happily tolerate it now!!!!
  5. I went on the Saturday and it seemed ok to me if a little more condensed than previous years! They only used the one hall instead of the usual 2 and the seating area for the talks was upstairs and a lot smaller. There were however still many people there. Sadly though, it doesn't look as though it'll be back next year and this was probably the last one in Bournemouth.
  6. Ok, thanks. And are they still the same price on the door? £8.00?
  7. Are these only available to buy online in advance or can you actually buy them on the door at the event itself? Thanks.
  8. I assume this won't be the actual original prop used in the films?!
  9. Thanks for the reply. So is that confirmation that they will not be attending Bournemouth?!
  10. Thanks for the reply. So is that confirmation that they won't be attending Bournemouth?!
  11. Christopher Lambert and Danny Glover They are both appearing at the Birmingham Film and Comic con a couple of weeks later so they'll already be in the country!
  12. So what can I say about this man that hasn’t already been said by people who have met him at previous events he has attended! A pleasure to talk with as well as listen to! I’ve met a number of guests at events like these over the years but John was probably the nicest and the most genuine. I was lucky to get there early on the Saturday and to be the first to meet him and if I hadn’t noticed the queue eventually beginning to form behind me, I could’ve quite happily stayed there and chatted to him for a lot longer! In fact, I could’ve spoken to him all day and listened to him all day! He even gave me advice about how to start my ideal career as an aspiring author! I've grown up loving him as Sallah in Indiana Jones and then later as Gimli in The Lord of the Rings and to be given the chance to meet him and to find out he really was as friendly and welcoming as I had hoped was actually quite an experience and one that I won’t forget! I’d like to thank Showmasters for inviting him to come to Bournemouth and I was honoured to have such a nice, genuine celebrity (not to mention Legend!) visit my hometown.
  13. Is there a possibility of the photoshoot tickets for him selling out before Saturday? Still working out plans/options etc for the weekend
  14. Don't suppose you could persuade Wendy Padbury to do a talk on Saturday as well?!
  15. Does anyone know if you'd be able to get a photo with John at the signing desk?
  16. I was only saying the other day how disappointing the guest list was. This more than makes up for it! I'm actually quite proud that he will be visiting my hometown!
  17. I’m curious as to know why the ‘bigger’ celebrities only ever attend the main convention in London and never any of the smaller regional ones? No dis-respect to the guests already confirmed but I can’t help but think the list isn't really all that impressive and interest in this event seems to have dwindled somewhat?
  18. Please invite Carl Weathers back. I was so looking forward to meeting him last year (and had even bought an Apollo Creed t-shirt off ebay!), so I was very disappointed when he had to pull out at the last minute.
  19. Does Ray Park normally do 'posed' photos at the autograph desk?
  20. If he's announced it on Twitter then I guess it's more or less official and SM needs to update the website asap to let people know. Damn shame. He was the only reason I was attending .
  21. I understand that. It's just with Bournemouth being a smaller venue with less people, I'm hoping he might have more time!
  22. To anyone who met Carl, was he personalising his autographs and adding requested quotes? Also, what was his general attitude like when you met him? He’s coming to Bournemouth (my home town!) next month and I’m planning on meeting him/getting his auto/having photoshoot etc so I’m just getting a ‘heads up’!
