  1. OK thanks, having looked at the venue map again, it looks like Piazza entrance 2 is the one closest to the station and you walk through to Hall 5 from there?
  2. This will be my first time going to Collectormania and I will be arriving by train just after 7:30 to join the Early Bird queue. The NEC site says that the event will be in Hall 5 (?) and it's not clear how to get to Hall 5 (or rather, where the queue will be for the event) from Birmingham International station from the maps, as the routes on their map suggest walking through other halls or walking a long way round to either the Piazza or Hall 5 entrances. Can someone please clarify where people queue in the morning and how to get there from the station?
  3. I was Diamond no 249 and they were on those numbers about 4pm. The delays with the Matt Smith TARDIS shoot meant he could spend a bit longer signing at that time but the guy on the queue told me he thought only Diamonds would get in. I suppose some VQs may have got in the queue if they were hanging around and Chris was still available before his shoot but it wouldn't have been that many if they were. Also, the queue was moving quickly at my point because they were only allowing 1 autograph per pass. He was very nice though, we chatted briefly about the A Word, he signed my Rose novelization. I'm glad he is coming back, I worried that he seemed very tired when I got his auto and may have been put off but the positivity of the fans must have been more than enough for him to return.

    Latest Guest Announcement - CHARLES DANCE

    His Diamond and Iron Throne shoot details are missing from his page. Hope he can come this time!

    Agreed, probably the bubbliest and friendliest guest I met all weekend.

    Store Batch query

    My timing, I should say...he was slow due to taking time and shoots but not that slow

    Store Batch query

    I think the Diamond batches are 25 passes for both photos and autos, which is about right for the auto queue (the first number listing was usually 1-30 or something like that) so they should be the same and it goes with the batch you have on your pass. I think I'm DP Batch 1 in most cases, which takes the edge off...was in the 200s for Eccleston and Capaldi last summer, especially the latter took until nearly 6pm to get there given the great man was a slow signer (and busy with shoots throughout the day. I was 66 for Matt Smith but timing also left him until the end of the day.

    No problem, thanks for the info.

    Store Batch query

    Thanks for clearing that up, Queen Sindel. So presumably in the auto queue, it will just say DP Batch 1 then DP Batches 1 and 2 etc. instead of the 1-30 numbering system you've had in the past? Also, the DPs won't be numbered anymore but will they say our Batch number on them?

    Store Batch query

    I have just done a pretend order for a few guests' photos and Diamonds just to see how busy they are (I have already bought them in most cases) and there were things that confused me/worried me: John Simm - His Diamond Pass photo batches say Batch 1-6 unavailable, start selecting from Batch 7 up to 12. Have that many DPs (presumably around 300 if batches are 50) already been sold and will the store really allow another 300 to be sold (although it may not get up that high anyway depending on those left to purchase closer to the event). For his normal photo shoot tickets, he is on Batch 5 so that is a hell of a lot of photos already for someone who is a 1 day guest (obviously a popular one but still). Peter Mayhew - His Sunday DP lists Batch 1 as available but then has Batch 4 as Not Available, with no Batch 2 or 3... Bernard Cribbins - Again on Diamond, currently lists Batch 1 and Batch 3 as Not Available but you can select Batch 2 in the middle of them. At the moment, no Batch higher than 3 listed. As I said, these things seem a bit odd but may be Eventbrite store errors, especially the latter two?

    Latest Guest Announcement - IAIN GLEN

    A great replacement for Charles Dance (as much as he can be replaced). Diamond definitely. Also, it's Downton Abbey.

    It came up for Bernard Cribbins but when I originally bought passes for the earlier announced DP guests like Charles Dance and Jack Gleeson, it was just the normal thing of no batches (and choice of day for Jack Gleeson). I looked again just now and there still isn't a batch option for them. Will one be implemented and those who've already bought effectively be Batch 1?
  14. jonedney124


    Just got my Diamond Pass. It asked me to select a batch number for the photos, which it doesn't normally??? I just did Batch 1 regardless.

    I just bought my tickets for the Saturday and like people above, I found that John Leeson's photo shoot for the Saturday wasn't listed.
