  1. Sort out a storage for my autos/photos. Buy a prop/piece of memorabilia. (I have always thought about it, but I've never seen anything I've wanted to commit too). Come up with an idea to cosplay next year at a con. I've never done it before. ( a year should be enough time to plan, right?? )
  2. My first con was a few years ago. I only realised it was taking place the day before. I had forever seen adverts for previous cons in SFX magazine and never really thought about actually going. I saw Dirk Benedict was gonna be there and thought, why not? I loved the The A-Team and realised I could actually meet one of them, I was not disappointed, he was a lovely guy. I came away like the kid who had just been given the best Christmas present of all time. I was buzzing for ages after. So that was my first experience of meeting someone to get their auto and several hundreds of £'s later (at least, so far). I've been going to cons ever since. Roll on the next one!
  3. Hi Dancol The previous post to your's has the answer to your question via a Facebook post from Jason. Q: Is November going to happen do you think? A: we put out official statements about events once everything has been looked into and weighed up and it is then put out as a proper statement , I am not going to put out a comment with out a full statement , at this time our official statement is we will look at where things are around 2 months out from all events , that has been our policy sins all this kicked off , hope that helps
  4. It's only natural for anyone to be concerned what's going on just now. I just feel that no one can speculate what is going on in 2/3 months time, when there is so much uncertainty about the next few days. All you can do is plan as if an event is going ahead. Book your accommodation, book your travel. Plan on it going ahead. I would use the same caution I use for any event that is more than a few weeks in advance, regardless of the current situation . Just incase MY circumstances change and I can no longer go. As tempting as it is to book using "advanced saver rates" to save a few £'s. I don't. I've had my accommodation booked for Collectormania in Birmingham since sometime last year. But I can cancel it anytime up to and including 24hrs before. Obviously my entry tickets/photos ops etc are a different story. If I cancel then i'm out of pocket.
  5. True, but minus the reviews. Although not always the case, I associate the other thread with first time watching of relatively new films. Also, The Book of Eli.
  6. Sadly for most people the way of the world is that they can't differentiate between fact and opinion. Which then ends up with lots of people believing everything is factual, as it was written down on Facebook, which can't possibly be false info.
  7. Disappointing, but not too much of a surprise with how things are. Just gives us all something to look forward to in November now.
  8. I've been watching Black Sails lately anyone from that would be awesome. Also anyone from Ripper Street.
  9. I have to agree with this point. At many events there is the complaint about standing outdoors, no matter the weather, unfortunately I think people need to accept that this is just par for the course. Either that or accept that the cost of tickets will go up if companies have to hire other halls for holding areas pre-show. However it doesn't mean you can't vent your frustration about it. Absolutely nothing wrong with that!
  10. Now that's a whole other con experience! I'd pay to see that
  11. As mental as it sounds being so far away. I can't wait. I didn't get to any cons this year and actually booked my accommodation for this last night. Yay!
  12. Anyone from.... Cobra Kai Vikings The Boys Bosch Jack Ryan Fear the Walking Dead The Purge Sons of Anarchy Mayans MC Justified SWAT Seal Team
  13. And here we go..... Trying to think of what I've been watching recently. Anyone from the following would be awesome. Vikings Cobra Kai
  14. I would think that any authentication service is only beneficial if you plan on selling your autographs. For me, it is all about meeting the guests and my memory of the day. I wouldn't need validation in this way. So as QS said this is a service that would need costs covered, resulting in pricing being increased elsewhere. Having seen how few people were using Beckett at collectormania last year while I queued for guests, I can't see the demand being there. Even if it was free I doubt there would be a tremendous increase in demand for the service.
  15. I always enjoy reading your review. Helps me make up for the fact I've not managed to make it to LFCC yet lol.
