  1. No, at least I can do stuff after and not have to break up my day. I'd know at the beginning or not and plan accordingly.
  2. But the free talks will take place in EC2 where space is limited and yet there will be more attendees than ever before... I mean, free talks will be filled because they are free and they won't be held on the super stage will they, just the standard one? What actually is happening on the Super Stage other than the Sherlocked panel? The Stan Lee panel.
  3. Thank you for this clarification. Which also means if you're at one and want to go to the next you have to leave and join the back of the queue that will have already formed and possibly miss out. With tickets at least you knew you'd still be able to get in. Have had this problem at another event. It's just really lucky that if we had to chose my bf and I could whittle it down to a panel each. I want Star Trek and he'll want Starship Troopers.

  5. Possibly. At least before we knew we would get a seat or not. Now it's all down to chance. I'd rather know from the outset if I could get in or not and not waste my time queuing so much.
  6. I can't imagine anyone being sat in a talk hall all day, considering the amount of stellar guests LFCC has on offer... I'm there all three days so I have plenty of time to see the guests that I want. Would rather not waste my time sitting waiting for a Terry Farrell panel on one day but I will do it if the audience isn't rotated...
  7. For the free talks will the halls be emptied before the start of each talk to allow people that have queued up decent seats like they usually are? Or will people just be sat in there all day?
  8. Wow you two have so low numbers! Thank you, I was remembering that Comic Gold passes get the priority seating! Yeah it would be really hard to make the priority seats for Gold/Comic Silver passes if they dont know the exact number coming to the talk. But does anybody know for sure? I rarely pay for talks as sometimes the sound isn't so great but if it's a rare guest I'll make getting a talk ticket a priority over photo shoots etc, hence the low number. Got this as soon as Stan was announced and got my shoot when I saw the original £35 batch were close to selling out
  9. I think this would be quite a cool item to get signed. It would be but I don't have the money to do that at this show unfortunately.
  10. Paid talk tickets mean that you are allocated a seat depending on when you ordered. I hope you get the right seats sorted as it would suck to be at the back due to an error.
  11. Andrew Lincoln, Chris Pine or David Duchovny. That would make my wallet weep!
  12. Awesome, I want to know who will be selling it so I know where to go to get one. I won't be getting a Stan's auto so really hope it's not a meet to get one policy.
  13. My blog is unconventionalblog.co.uk, I mostly write about events I go to with some interviews I have done thrown in.
  14. Great guest, John Hurt is a great meet. I can't justify meeting him again though sadly. Double the price just by adding Doctor Who to his CV which is unfortunate. Too many new guests I haven't met yet though.
  15. This is really cool, especially after just seeing some of his work in the Marvel exhibition in Paris!
  16. The problem is this thread is similar to the True Blood cons because ME clearly either a. can't get anyone or b. don't really want to run it. Just look at last year - they got guests so people bought tickets and people even paid extra for Alexis because he was a sponsored guest. So there is a fanbase for this. The problem is people won't buy tickets when you only have two guests announced for it, and even though they are great guests, I don't consider them to be main cast. It also seems that in the wake of LFCC this is just getting pushed to the side which also doesn't help because the later it's left the more people that won't commit to it because people need to book holidays and travel etc. The only thing I do know is I'm getting pretty fed up of guests being announced for Chevron which is NEXT YEAR when HW needs more guests!
  17. Very happy about this announcement as I can get my Hellraisers and an X Files comic signed. So glad I got Leo Manco on my Hellraiser 1 now, this will be my first double auto comic!
  18. You are always better off bringing your own stuff, I do, and for anyone that doesn't then I think they aren't that bothered about meeting X guest. There have been people in the past that I was going to meet until I saw the poor selection / quality of photo so I walked away. And if you can walk away then you are not that bothered about meeting them or you would have gone out of your way to have something specific to get signed. Some guests also bring their own photos as well as having them provided but this doesn't happen so much for the overseas guests in case they get stopped at the border. Also, although it's just a slight distinction my OCD about such things wishes to point out that Collectormania is not a convention, it's a signing event. And most signing events I've been to do provide something to get signed. Well, everyone has their own opinion but I've never walked away from a table because the photos were terrible. Going out of your way to get something specific, as you put it, doesn't make you more of a 'fan' (so to say). I don't because I'm already quite on budget when it comes to these events. I'm always very excited to meet quite a couple of guests and if I'd have to spend money on an item for each of them to sign (even if it's only 4 pounds for a photo), it'll quickly add up and I might have to drop a guest for something like that. I'd rather not get something specific and meet the 10 guests I wanted to meet or do get something and only meet 7 while having to drop others. Don't take it the wrong way, I know it sounds way more harsh than it's supposed to be but I kind of wanted to point that out. Out of curiosity, I would like to know what the small difference is between a signing event and a convention? Is it the lack of Q&A's, because I find most other things represented on Collectormania are also on the London Film & Comic Conventions (dealers, photoshoots, ...) I didn't say anything about being more of a fan by bringing your own stuff, it's about meeting the guest and value for money, because at the end of the day you are a paying customer and the object you take away with you should be of a decent quality!
