    Tickets sales UPDATE 9th of Oct

    A question. I've changed address in between ordering my entry tickets and photoshoot tickets. Can they still be grouped together and sent to the new address or will they be sent out separately? They are grouped under the same reference...
  6. It has happened before: earlier this year, when they all appeared at an event in America, meaning the actors obviously don't have a problem with it, it will be down to scheduling and whether or Showmasters can negotiate an appropriate price for them to make their money back, as we know they always try to keep things as affordable for fans as they can. Personally I'm really hoping that they can arrange it.

    This is a fantastic idea, would really move the gaming side of the con to a new level as well!

    Event Feedback

    I attended the Friday preview evening and the Saturday and had a great time, but there are a few things that I think could be improved before Star Trek London, which I guess is the next big event: Firstly, the tape on the floor advising parons where to queue doesn't work. I'll always queue and try to just get on with it if there is a long queue, it's long because loads of other people want to do the same activity as me, hence the long queue. If I wanted to get through the queue faster I should have turned up earlier, that's how queuing works. Unfortunately, not everybody who attended LFCC seems to feel this way. I queued for over an hour before early entry on Saturday morning, only for 2 blokes to just try to subtly ease there way into the line right near me, having just arrived. Moreover, when the photoshoots had to be moved due to others overrunning the queues descended into farce, particularly the Adam Baldwin shoot later on Saturday. I really think Showmasters should look into obtaining some of these: Large events like festivals hire large numbers of them to arrange queues and I think the same should be done here. It would make it clear where people should queue when they arrive in the mornings before the event opens and would keep people in the right order whilst waiting for photoshoots. On the subject of photoshoots, there are a few other points I'd like to raise. Firstly, a couple of years ago people were called for photoshoot queues in much smaller batches, something which sadly seems to have been lost. If I log on to the online store as a new guest is announced and hurriedly buy my ticket, which let's say turns out to be #2 (as timelord81r almost certainly beat me to it...) I think it's unfair that crew will then sometimes call #1-150 or #1-200 straight away. I seem to remember that a couple years ago it was #1-50, then #51-100 etc. which means that you don't spend over an hour in a photoshoot queue in which you're holding a ticket with a number less than 10 (which I must admit happened to me multiple times). Also, regarding the controversial "printing on site", I believe that this should only have been offered if the quality of the prints could be maintained. I feel that I was very lucky in that 4 of my shoots were printed at Boots and only 2 were printed at the show (you can tell by whether or not the file name is written on the reverse of the print. The colours in the on-site prints are much worse. A good way to illustrate this is to look at the colour my t-shirt in these shoots (the Jeri Ryan shoot was printed in Boots, the Gates McFadden one was printed on site and as you can see, the blue is a lot "weaker" in the on site photo): Overall I had a great time, as always, I just think changing little things like this could make such a difference

    The "Who was that person" thread...

    I was near the front of the Adam Baldwin photoshoot queue next to a couple of guys who were really cool. We chatted about the new Spider-man movie and how superior it is to the last few, amongst other things, then I kept seeing them around the hall whilst waiting for shoots to come back on the Saturday. If wither of you are on here would be cool to keep in touch!
  10. VERY excited about this, will be getting him to sign my Amazing Spider-man Masterworks #12 (as it includes #113 and #114, which he drew). Might also see about getting a sketch of Thanos!
