  1. With all the Indiana Jones/James Bond stuntmen in attendance it would be cool to add Vic Armstrong and (his wife) Wendy Leech to the line-up(who unfortunately had to cancel last time she was announced)
  2. With Brian Johnson being there and this year being Alien's 40th anniversary it would be cool to get some more SFX crew and model makers - Dennis Lowe, Roger Nichols, Ron Hone,etc. (and they all worked on Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back too)
  3. As far as I'm aware Roy only played the Alien that is shot out of the Narcissus by Ripley with the harpoon gun at the end of the film. Bolaji Badejo (deceased) was the main Alien performer and Eddie Powell (also deceased) was the main Alien stunt performer (hanging upside down when he kills Brett, etc.).
  4. I'd be interested to know what number he ended on too, I got to him a little after doors opened and got a number in the late 300's and he was on 1-50 at about half past one when I checked (I guess I'm just wondering whether I was right to give up!)
  5. Hasn't she cancelled? She's no longer on the main website.
  6. It's when people want sketches, quotes and/or time consuming posed selfies (this particular guy wanted everything added and took his time about it) - you pay for an autograph on a free photo or item of your own, anything else could be charged as extra. The 'other' show request a £5 donation to charity for a selfie, which seems fair when others pay more for a professional photo that often takes less time. The pre-sale shop charge an additional £5 for a dedication, so why not at the table? It might just deter people that demand more from the celebrity than just an autograph.
  7. It's not just the number of items that can slow someone down, in Tobe Hooper's queue yesterday a guy who was only getting two items signed, got the signatures (in black pen), then asked for him to sketch a chainsaw on both items (in silver pen) and then asked for a posed photo - the whole process took about 10 minutes. It was straight after that, that the 'no posed photos' rule had to be introduced, so one persons greed ruined it for everyone else that afternoon! There ought to be stricter rules or price increases for extras to be added, e.g. another £5 for a sketch or selfie.
  8. It would be nice to see Steve Thompson (writer) at an event, his contribution seems to have been lost under the weight of Moffat and Gatis
  9. ANH people I'd love to meet (particularly in this 40th Anniversary year): Anne Skinner - Script Supervisor/Continuity Bunny Alsup - Assistant to Producer Gerry Gavigan - 2nd Assistant Director Peter Kohn - Production Runner Leslie Dilley - Assistant Art Director Ron Beck - Wardrobe Master Phil McDonald - Props (robots)
  10. It would be great to see George Harris back at an event
  11. It would be great if you could get him to bring his daughters along too (and Bunny Alsup)
