    Alita Marketing Stand Codes

    Damn. I should have said I was still on FB. Never mind, happy for those who got that special edition .

    Alita Marketing Stand Codes

    I was told that I had to like their Facebook page to have a chance of getting one of the bigger packs, but I've come off FB. Shame.

    Diamond Pass Gifts = good

    I was given a choice as to which bag I wanted. One was a light coloured tote-kind bag, so I chose the other one. Perhaps the mints only came with that bag (they were pretty hidden at the bottom)...?
  4. I only went the Friday this year but had great experiences. I had photos booked with William Shatner and Billy Dee Williams and never expected to get anywhere near them for an auto. Thanks to fantastic timing, I was able to get personalised autos from each in the morning. BDW was the epitome of cool and we chatted briefly about his voice work in the Robot Chicken shows, but I clammed up when I met Kirk! I was just greatful to say hello and thank you to the legend. I found my voice again when meeting Adam Baldwin (we chatted about filming Full Metal Jacket) and Gina Torres (we chatted about Firefly), and I had a great time talking to David Naughton about American Werewolf in London. Great, great day, and I'm planning on making a weekend of it next year.

    Diamond Pass Gifts = good

    I don't remember getting any extra gifts with my Kevin Smith DP a year or so back, so the gifts I got this time (Firefly wallet for Gina Torres and the Showmasters bag with bottle and mints) were all really appreciated. I got a bit confused as it said 'Diamond Pass Collection' by the gift collection area but that was just me not paying enough attention to the floor plan .

    Gina Torres not arriving until 1pm

    I thought her photo session wasn't until 13.45?
  7. Just met the legend. He's dedicating his autos and is very friendly :-)
  8. Saw Fisherman's Friends last night, and he was great in that too.

    Next Big Announcement - Friday 7pm

    John Wick is a hot franchise so I'm guessing it might be Keanu....
  10. I asked the lady at the desk why the lights weren't on and was told it was due to health and safety. Shame, as I think they were an integral part of this prop shoot.

    Pilou Asbaek Appreciation Thread

    Great guest, seemed really pleased when I chose a 'Ghost in the Shell' picture for him to sign and asked if he could sign it in gold :). Great to hear how he approached the role.

    Crew Appreciation Thread

    Thanks for starting this thread as I've got to give a special mention to Becks and Karim at the information desk. Yesterday I discovered I had lost my folder full of autographs and photos somewhere in Olympia. I arrived breathless at the info desk to tell them what happened and as soon as I began describing the contents, Karim suddenly said "Yes, I found it!". After having little hope that I'd ever get my folder back, the staff saved my weekend. I immediately passed on my thanks to the nearest "red shirt" as well. Thanks also to someone special who kept a cool head and suggest I try the info desk .

    Carl Weathers

    I met him when he came down to Brighton this year. He was nice enough but seemed to be a serious guy though. He was happy to personalise although I didn't ask him to put a message or quote. Best of luck.
