Do Diamond Passes guarantee personalised autographs?
ptenbob replied to phil_wilce's topic in London Film & Comic Con 2018Late to the party, but... From a sheer logistical point of view, someone signing their name only (for instance) can take 2 seconds. It's a practiced art. They've done it hundreds if not thousands of times in their life and the pen just flows. Writing an unfamiliar name can take another 30 seconds, more if there's an unusual spelling or if they make a mistake and have to start again. Every personalisation can mean that 2 attendees don't get to meet the guest (long time crew here, I'm talking from actual experience). Now, I do *completely* agree that personalisation is awesome. I've got many over the years made out to me and it does add that extra something, but at the end of the day I also appreciate that there's more than just me wanting to meet the guest. As I've said before, if you had ticket number 900, you'd be glad there are no personalisations in place today... Just another side to the discussion, no offence or pointed jabs meant at anyone.
ptenbob replied to hattonred's topic in Guest SuggestionsHe came to an event yeeears ago. I don't want to be bursting bubbles, but meeting him was really not a pleasant experience, put me off him for life. Would not recommend looking forward to meeting him no matter whether he's announced for a Showmasters event or elsewhere.
ptenbob posted a topic in Guest SuggestionsGood ol' JR! Just released his autobiography, book signing tour booked, would surely have reasons for wanting to attend... :)
ptenbob replied to geekysteve's topic in Guest SuggestionsWould be incredible... Not sure I can see it happening though
Please join in the Lea Thompson for LFCC 2018 campaign.
ptenbob replied to spengler's topic in Guest SuggestionsUh... I'm not going to take part in the "poll", but I will say that it'd be really awesome to get Lea back for any event, not just necessarily London.

Latest Guest Announcement - PETER MAYHEW
ptenbob replied to showmasters's topic in London Film & Comic Con 2017Legitimately happy with this announcement, such a lovely lovely fella :)
Believe me, I'm a 40 year old fella and cried when I met Dean Cain (not particularly my proudest moment I have to admit...) In all seriousness though, speaking as a crew member who often directs the queueing, I would attempt to ask anyone not actively getting an autograph to stand slightly to one side (only by a couple of feet), just enough to be able to guage how many people are in the queue, who is there for the autograph, who is accompanying or just there to take a photo whilst the guest signs. It will be fine :)
ptenbob posted a topic in Guest SuggestionsComing off the heels of another outstanding perfomance in the latest season of Line of Duty (no spoilers please!), how about Vicky McClure? Loved her in This is England too, and she always comes across brilliantly in interviews.
ptenbob posted a topic in Guest SuggestionsJust because I love you, doesn't mean I like you... How about showing some brotherly loooooooooooooooooooove to Bruce Prichard aka Brother Love? I listen to his podcast and he has some incredible stories about his time with WWE and TNA. Who's in? :)
