  1. Ditto! Only got a photo at Birmingham so potentially an auto at least this time.

    Opinions on the day Sat

    Yeah it was, it did give us a bit of a laugh, I was half expecting some kind of Men In Black flash of light as we stepped back outside and for 9hrs to be unaccounted for lol

    Opinions on the day Sat

    This was my first big con and it pretty much went as expected. I planned my day as best I could, my number one priority was Danny Glover. I had his photo first thing, he was an absolute delight. I got a VQ for him and eventually got an auto at about 3.45. By this point he was clearly tired and not as chatty as first thing, but he was still very polite. I would expect anyone to be this way as it's a long day. Having read up on previous experiences at the big 2 I was more than prepared to stand in queues all day for the ones I wanted. It went from one extreme to the other, I missed the Christopher Lambert talk to wait for Danny Glover, but I also got Kristanna Loken, Austin Amellio and Emily Kinney in about 5mins all in. My photo clashes probably worked out in my favour as everything was so close together it actually freed up time for autos. There were only 2 I didn't get, but they weren't must haves. Still 6 photos and about a dozen autos later, I'd definitely consider next year line-up dependant.

    Photo quality saturday

    I remember seeing those god awful photos from last year lol. I'm quite happy with all 5 photos I got, I had one in all 3 areas. My only gripe is I now have a "Prom" style pic with my pal at the Han Solo prop. He didn't even have the decency to put his hand on my hip

    Queuing and Layout

    Thinking back to yesterday, even having the layout that photo A did with the tape on the ground marking queueing areas for autos might make it a bit easier to marshal? It would certainly made it easier in photo areas B and C at the very least giving a boundary for folk to wait behind unless called.

    In that case CRAP! I am however glad I used peeved and not pi**ed, because I don't think the cleaners would like to clean up after the bear!

    Queuing and Layout

    I think the holding area for queuing could have taken up less space, however it is dry today, I'm sure I'd have a different opinion if it was peeing down. And perhaps "roped" queues for some guest signing. This may have helped prevent some of the Robert englund/Danny Glover queue issues with VQ's etc. It seems to be running smooth now despite witnessing a few crew/pit bosses getting their ears chewed off. I can understand people getting peeved about the problems, but remember it's not life or death folks!

    So, who're you seeing this weekend?

    I've photos booked with Danny Glover, Christopher Lambert, Richard Wilson, Frank Bruno, Kenny Johnson and Joseph Marcell. Looking to get autos from all of the above plus Billy Boyd, Sylvester McCoy, Mark Williams, Chad Coleman, Ray Park, Austin Emilio, Emily Kinney, Jordan Woods-Robinson, Michelle Ryan, Kristanna Loken, Donald Sumpter, Jeremy Bulloch and Valene Lane. All in one day!
  12. Thanks Raylenth, that's how I'm hoping it goes. I've got a lot to names to cram into a one day visit beginning with my first 2 photos clashing. But a pair of trainers and a good stretch before kick off should see me right .
  13. In terms of guests, are the big 2 shows like regional for when guests start signing? By that I mean my previous experience at Glasgow over the last few years is that guests generally start a good 30/60mins after 9am opening. I guess what I'm trying to ask is, are you able to go around and get VQ's (if in operation for a guest) for everyone you hope to see, before actually joining any queues?
  14. Well having gone from never having booked a photo before, to booking half a dozen, I better get my running shoes on. 2 clashes I can see already. Just makes the day more fun! Lol
