  1. The Mrs' Xmas present. Don't worry, she's no idea what a forum is
  2. Aw no. I was really looking forward to him being there.
  3. Absolutely loved it but I loved the Phantom Menace too so what do I know?
  4. What a great man, such a great and humble.convention guest and as Queen said, his charity work was immesurable. How much money must he have raised for medicins sans frontieres? RIP Rene. You leave behind a great body of work and as an acting professor taught some of the best!
  5. Very true I forgot about the photographers. They were great. Big well done to the photographer at photo area A displaying such patience during the J G Hertzer as General Martok shoot as he insisted on stopping and speaking to everyone as if it was his autograph table .
  6. Apart from the aforementioned South Korean they have done German, Spanish, I think some 4th Doctor ones were done in French as there are 4th Doctor French novels. They also did Portuguese but not for Portugal it was for Brazil where it is very popular.
  7. Hear, hear. There was the beginnings of an issue when there was a technical issue that held up photo area A around mid afternoon yesterday and with a George Takei photoshoot timetabled to start but the previous 2 (much shorter) shoots still hadn’t happened yet but they handled it brilliantly, even the red shirt who came out to tell everyone waiting that if they also had tickets for David Warner in the Klingon Throne they should go do that now and come back. Never seen that before, they usually don’t know what to do in those instances (see LFCC chaos last summer). All the queues were BRILLIANT. First time I’ve ever seen at any major SM event, proper capping of queues at the VQ signpost and not letting them get out of control. Really well managed by everyone this year.
  8. Point taken but for people like me Milton Keynes is as well as being London and is there another Collectormania at Birmingham? I thought the last one was the last one if you see what I mean It’s an hour away from London. To the north of the UK that’s basically London. Like you said above MK has much worse travel links than the NEC which is (very) literally on the doorstep of train and plane. I know there will be business reasons behind it but it really int good for fans further north. Hotel costs alone for me for the same hotel chain are twice the rates they are when I go to LFCC than they are for DST.
  9. Since Avery Brookes has retired from doing conventions, I doubt it. also, there are technically 7 “captains” now.
  10. Actually quite angry at this. First Showmasters moves Collectormania back to London now this. London, London London. Yet again making it harder and more expensive for the rest of the UK to get to.
  11. SLIGHT SPOILERS Nothing exclusive. Just the same trailer. I’m not sure if he was meant to but Patrik Stewart let slip that Frankes and Sirtis are only in one episode as is Jonathan Del Arco. Also Brent Spiner’s Data is in it very rarely but his scenes are imperative to the narrative. Also Picard is in his 90’s now
  12. Oh go on then at least it’d give me a laugh.
  13. Wow. Nobody here has a package then. Weird. The forum normally has a few people complaining about who they have etc. OK, just have to chance our luck I guess.
  14. Hearing rumours of a cancellation but nothing posted here or on twitter? Anything official anywhere?
  15. Does everybody have the information on who and what is included in their Commander/Captain packages yet? My partner is going to buy one and if the information is out there already for who is in package A, B etc then it would be handy to try to select one that suits her needs.
  16. What Queen says is true the official photo sales desk won’t, however there will be a lot of merch stalls that sell photos and prints and they are usually very savvy of guests other franchise appearances (remember you need to buy your prints at this show, and get them before you queue, they are not included in the price).
  17. You can’t miss the walkway its literally right there as you come out of the station and you just follow it along. It ends in a set of stairs and at the bottom straight ahead is Hall 3 (with 4 just around the corner, not sure which will be the “door” yet, they have used both on different occasions). Looking forward to seeing you both there.
  18. I hope so. I’ll actually be a bit annoyed if they’ve just moved it back to Milton Keynes. Birmingham a lot easier for a lot of the UK to get to than MK and it’s a better site too IMO.
  19. Obviously her one will be but the others will still be happening.
  20. Damn you Showmasters. Damn you!! This is going to be one hell of a difficult one not to go to now. What a superb guest.
  21. Depends on the material of the box. I usually use Sharpie paint pens on mine and they've worked fine on everything however my Star Wars blu ray box took ages for stuff to dry (and I smudged my Billy Dee auto). 99% Sharpie all the way though IMO.
  22. RIP Aron. Such sad news and so sudden. Just 24 hours ago he was furiously tweeting away as he usually did about injustices in the World and Donald Trump in particular. He told me that he was longing for the day he would get to see "the door hit his ass on the way out of the White House." Shame he'll not get to now. A very sad loss and so young.
  23. According to multiple reports Aron Eisenberg, most famous for playing Nog in Star Trek Deep Space Nine and a guest at DST 2018 is critically ill in hospital. No other details have been reported but he underwent a kidney transplant in 2015. My thoughts go out to him and his family. Get well soon Aron.
