  1. As someone who often wears black t-shirts, it would have made for interesting shoots for me too.
  2. Pre pay usually means also booking a time slot for the person in question, and then it's up to the organisers to make sure they stick to the time frames. The first time I encountered this was when the new organisers took over Star Wars Celebration in the US a few years back, and for the most part, they were successful in getting the people through the lines on schedule. As for DP for Brian, I imagine because he was only there one day, from a few people I spoke to he's been on their list to meet for quite a while and get stuff signed, so I'm not surprised he was popular and many DP got sold.
  3. Gotta admit, that's a funny photo, and damn someone made the same Red Dwarf quip.
  4. They’ve announced gold and diamond passes, and three day passes can be collected from 1pm on Friday
  5. Some may, but generally things wind down from 5 so don’t count on guests being around for the last hour
  6. https://www.yourparkingspace.co.uk/locations/show/4294937505?gclid=CjwKCAiA7dKMBhBCEiwAO_crFPnYleFOBfBwIBTYRREUnZzalq264bpYGgkheRWKZCL8vDTSExnMsBoC5kcQAvD_BwE £20 for the day
  7. I was going to say he was down for doing another con in the UK before Xmas, but having checked the site, he's no longer listed.
  8. They've posted Nick Frost is confirmed for this event now on FB. However Ray Hassett has been moved to Spring.
  9. Not heard of him confirming elsewhere yet, best send an email through to SM to ask.
  10. Best place to check is probably SM’s FB page, this place is pretty much a tertiary concern nowadays...
  11. Probably gonna be down to what each guest is comfortable with
  12. As Collectormania got postponed, Dave Barclay?
  13. How about removing everyone off the website until they are reconfirmed? I think that’s what is annoying many people, the uncertainty on some guests.
  14. 1) No, but email SM and they may be able to swap it over to Saturday for you. 2) Email SM again on this, I believe should be. 3) See above, contact SM, generally you can't but because the show dates are rearranged, they are allowing refund vouchers, which I guess you can reuse to buy Sunday.
  15. I have a friend probably going to the other one that weekend, so I'm sure we may double up and I'll get graphs for him from LFCC and him from the other one for me.
  16. I must admit I’d overlooked the new dates when seeing the reschedule, and a possible clash, so that’s another con whose name has a non England country name in it?
  17. 91% of new Covid cases are the delta variant. Cases rising every week. Double jab only 80% effective against delta variant. The grand re-opening on 21st ain't happening imo, will be pushed back, and I'm not sure LFCC will go ahead either at this rate. We shall see.
  18. As Raylenth says, check the product description. Generally though, the MK address has been for the recent SW send in private signings, the Welsh address is the main address for Showmasters event send in.
  19. I think he means if they decide to cap the capacity of the event lower than the number of tickets sold after the fact. I would be more inclined to think they'd be more cautious and under sell tickets, thus maybe having some on the door.
  20. Ah hah, it was in reference to Saturday already being sold out, the carry overs of course.
  21. All the carry over tickets from last year?
  22. The first part of the first sentence and much of the rest is definitely correct. The evidence right now that having the vaccine doesn't completely prevent you from transmitting Covid if you have it but it does significantly reduce the transmission probability. The immune rate for AZ after two doses is way higher than 60%, new research suggests the 12 week wait serendipitously was the better option, and two doses can be actually in the 80-90% range. Higher than that if you wait 6 months, but who's going to do that?! I just want to point out that my comment originally was in direct response to the Indian variant aspect, and that right now only those people with both doses can consider themselves relatively protected against that variant as you surmise in your final sentence. Anyone with none or just one jab should still be very cautious. This is why I was mentioning it in regards to the timing of LFCC (in 7 weeks now) and what state the vaccine rollout will be by that point given the increasing number of cases via the Indian variant. Let alone this new Vietnam one. There still be a proportion of potential attendees, especially those under 30, without both jabs. I won't be getting my second jab for example until a few days before the show and I'm in the higher end of the 40s age bracket.
  23. Really only if you’ve had both doses. And not even half the adult population has had both doses so far.
  24. Thanks. Sadly I’ve known quite a few people who have contracted Covid, including my mate Jason, who’s had it so long and still recovering he made the papers... https://news.sky.com/story/uks-longest-known-covid-patient-suffering-fainting-attacks-after-more-than-13-months-in-icu-12302521
