  1. Guest suggestions

    id LOVE Aliens guests and X files guests. cant wait for this one!
  2. Anymore guests coming?

    if Bournemouth is anything to go by maybe the odd dr who or starwars supporting actor.
  3. I think theres a good chance as I cant see this film con being busy at all right now with the guest line up. he was doing the odd one at LFCC, and im told hes a really nice guy but as QS said you wont know till the day
  4. Question regarding guests

    Bournemouth will most prob be filled with starwars and dr who. it has had some big names for a smaller show. Robert Englund, the Hulk were 2 of my faves. But for the real big ones you will need a yearly trip to LFCC. this will be a great show to take your time in and look around the stalls. so far theres only 1 I want to will go in at 11am on the Saturday and be out by 1
  5. Loudhailers at photo shoot areas?

    Put them in a different area
  6. I have to say that's not a good looking Harley at all! I thought they were going to use one that looks like a screen used one, as you see them a lot more these days since the sons has been around. and looks dark with no back drop. not worth the money, and ive learned my lesion with the group shots and don't do them now. Its a shame that with most posts we spend so much money to only have to admit that we will have to photoshop the pic that was taken my a pro? lol crazy world we live in. im going to stick to the small sm shows and leave lfcc I cant be doing with the stress and is it me or are the prices going through the roof?
  7. The B.I.C has an amazing air con system I place, and has been fixed from last year as it was cutting the power. The talks at Bournemouth have always been free even with the big names there, but they will normally put a post in here if its not. The next 4 weeks should be interesting as they should start filling the guests up for it now LFCC is over.

    they all had blue tshirts on, I did look for a red but none there. I also had so much more to do as getting from 1 photo area to another at the other side of the building was not only painful for me to do being knocked and trying to get through everyone, but a race against time.
  9. id not say they had much security as they were selling the bowie knife, for 29.99 and normal blades that look over 12 inchs long for around 20.00 they were giving them a quick wrap and handing them over. as we don't talk about other events we wont but the guest area had no security over 1 side and a guest could of got hurt. anyway I just wanted to point out that the bag checks that stop you bringing in blades were being sold inside

    Yes I did and was told by the girl that I should not of been told that. At that point I just wanted to get the autos I wanted and go, the heat was a killer and I don't like getting into things with people that can cause a row so I left it. 5.00 is better than 10 I suppose, it's just upsetting that your meeting your childhood crush for a photo and it's not what you would expect from a very professional set up
  11. One thing id like to point out is the security of the event. A very basic bag check was done on the way in, but 1 stall I saw as was selling knives, huge swords, daggers and lock knives. Dose this defeat the object of bag checks? The latest London attacks were with knives so maybe having such stalls inside is a bad idea? I said at the check what are you keeping yr eye out for and he told me knives, guns and explosives. But I was not body checked. I also found a side door manned with 2 crew doing hand stamps, but I was able to walk back in the same way with out even being seen by the crew. By slipping behind them. It's a habit of mine of spending most of my adult life In the security and health and safety industry I always keep my eye out for things like that. It's a worry that a stall that is selling weapons is inside a building that's carrying out bag checks for such things. Mite be an idea to note that one down when in meetings for next year.
  12. I had an Extra help band and went in at 8.55. as soon as I got to the auto area I was knocked to the ground by the mass of GA people running in a stampede! the very young crew on the area at the time did nothing 1 pitboss was shouting stop running but this did nothing at all. I also want to point out that if you don't have a diamond pass the odds of you meeting people are VERY slim. it seems to me that not only have the prices gone up but soon diamond pass is going to be the only way to go. I was told at the benedict cumberbatch, christopher Lloyd, and tom Wilson that due to the amount of diamonds sold there was no point giving out the VQ'S as they will be spending the day doing the diamonds. tom Wilson got through all his around 4.30 and then went to VQ. the others did not. I don't think I will bother with next year as the costs are going up so fast. my friend paid £85.00 for a benedict cumberbatch auto and said he just signed it never even looked him in the eye and was over in under 5 seconds. his staff were rushing him, I get that he has to do other bits on the day but at £85.00 that SM spark was lost this year there was a lack of respect for crew and pit boss, ppl did what they wanted when they wanted even bullying one crew member to letting them in a line. at that point I piped up and they walked away and the young lady looking sad just mimed " thank you " to me. I felt so sorry for her. the lay out was a joke this year trying to get from one photo area to the other, with the amount of people trying to get autographs. the pit boss's were trying so hard to keep things safe but it was a health and safety nightmare, as that was my job for 7 years. there needs to be safe clear walk ways from each area! some of the crew were really wound up you could see it and would just shout stuff at people with a very short fuse, I think it should be made clear how demanding the job is! and not ut new crew on the photo areas as this just causes more problems. the pitboss's and crew were trying so hard but a bad layout, not being able to get autos due to "Diamond only" and people spending so much money on a gold pass to be let in 10 mins after the ga was this years downfall. people just sitting and eating in the photo areas made it even more hot and busy and trying to get from area A to G then back to A due to clash was a total nightmare as you had around 3000 people packed in like sardines in the auto area you need to walk through to get to each area. im not having a dig at all im just pointing out that we as paying costumer's should be treated a little better, were not at school now so no need to shout at us, and I think our views need to be looked at for next time. I also feel sorry for the mods on here who cant do a thing about it and cant contact the event as they are not getting back to them. there needs to be a way that the event are on here and trying to sort the problems as this could really help. anyway it was an ok day a not as good as 2016 but an ok day, lets hope the 2017 one is as smooth as the other events
  13. never knew about this till reading this post I would of had that done

    I spent 43 mins in line for the sales desk as only 2 people were on it and was told I cant have a refund as the photo is not "as bad" as Fridays. and I should of taken it up at the time. well I did take it up at the time and was told no point having another one done as that's as good as giles could get it, and was told to go to the sales desk. I would of been happy with vouchers. so I think there was so sort of mix up with both sides putting it on the other person to sort out. granted its not as bad as the Friday shoots but its nowhere near close to the quality that SM normally do ive been telling everyone ive had my photo with the Alien from Cocoon! ill wait for the digital prints to go live buy that and run it through photoshop, but after paying £45 for it ive now got to pay more and I was told by crew on the day that it will cost £10? so all in all ive paid £55 for the photo and had to do work on it.

    Wow I may ask for a refund! That's real bad bro, the person taking them should say something! I hope someone high up has a chat with her and this is sorted! I never thought it was going to be that bad. I bet SM get loads of agro over this too
