  1. David, did you do biology in school? I believe you are a boy
  2. I met Jeremy at a Buffy/Angel convention just after Season 1 of Angel was first broadcast. He was in Episode 11 of Season 1 called Somnambulist. He is such a nice bloke.
  3. I do not think it would work financially as a stand alone convention, but to have them at LFACC, or EMS or CM:MK works as they can do the photos, signing etc and have group talks.
  4. My favourite Trek Captain. This guy is a must for my "To Meets" list. Another photo to order.
  5. I think it is about time i met The Shanks. I have had a few opportunities in the past, but always missed out. Time to remedy that.
  6. I always preferred Nicole as Dax. She just has that look about her that makes me smile. Stunning eyes. I have heard she is a wonderful guest to meet.
  7. Colm Meany would be a great addition. I am a great fan of his film work, especially his British films.
  8. This comment was directed at seasoned event attendees who have been overly vocal about past issues in comparison to events ran. This post was one of several exchanged between myself and another poster, and thus looses meaning if just read as a single post.
  9. Finally, someone who acknowledges that Catwoman was not in this film. So many people I know, and others I have seen online, have said that she was Catwoman. She had all the characteristics there, but not the Superhero/Villain name. The same goes for Joseph Gordon-Levitt in that people say he is Robin, and that happens to end up being his real first name. But I feel he has more characteristics to the future alter-ego of Nightwing. If Christopher Nolan is open to it, I see a Nightwing film in the near future with appearances in cameo like form by both Selina "Not Catwoman" Kyle and Bruce Wayne/Batman. Also, Bane is not dead. despite what Wikipedia says. He was shot by Selina "Not Catwoman" Kyle, but no body was found or his death acknowledged.
  10. With Season 2 currently filming, I guess re-writes will have to happen of future scripts. Season 2 is due to air on Jan 28th 2013, and scripts canbe written very fast if needed. I just hope that they do kill off JR Ewing and not re-cast him.
  11. The last update I saw was that Showmasters were trying to iron things out with Bluewater. I guess that is why they gave the March 2013 as a preliminary date and not a permanent one. As time marches on, I would think this may not happen in March. But, I guess only time will tell.
  12. As I have posted previously, and mentioned above by Queen Sindel, things can get blown out of proportion. Things can get misunderstood. That is why I took great time to explain what I was trying to do as you had taken away the complete opposite to what I had meant in my head. You are, in your own words, new to conventions. That is why some of us are doing our best to help reassure you. There will be people who will vocally share your concerns, and sometimes that can heighten the concerns of a person in your position who is new to the convention scene. Yes, some events have not happened. Some have been postponed. It happens. But, and this is where some people have seemingly chosen to ignore history, Showmasters and Massive Events have run many many events. I do look forward to seeing more announcements for this event as it will mean people like yourself, both new to the convention scene and a little spooked that there has been little activity on this event since it was announced, will have something to smile about.
  13. With the new date/event being with the support of the film makers, I would say that no one is out of bounds.
  14. All three shows provide guests on a regular basis for SM it seems. It would be nice to see ones who have yet to attend, or who have not attended in a while.
  15. The two that are a must for me are Ashley Greene and Michael Sheen. Anyone else is a bonus.
  16. He has been in some of my favourite British movies as well.
  17. The crew are very helpful when it comes to making sure you can get to a talk if it has a potential clash with your photo shoot. If it happens, and sometimes it does, you need to go to a crew member at the photo shoot area on the day to see if you can be fast tracked through so you can attend the talk. It is something they try to do, but cannot promise it will happen. Selling out depends on who the photo shoot is for. That is a gamble. Also, the longer you leave buying a ticket, the higher a ticket number you risk getting. As someone else has said, the schedule is finalised in the week before the event. This allows for little or no changes. If you are attending the whole weekend, then spreading them over the days is definitely better. It means you are not rushing around from pint A to point B so to speak. You will be more relaxed and thus more likely to enjoy the event more. I am planning on attending this one and will be doing this myself.
  18. The original outline, later developed into 9 books, was said by Lucas et al to be in 9 parts. The end of 3 and whole of 4 was the focal point of the time line, but New Hope was deemed to be the most relevant to be the "Star Wars" movie. Mostly written by keyboard warriors who refuse to accept what has been said many years before - despite later on denying part 7-9 existed (books anyone) - by Lucas. I ignore 99.9% of these type of online reports. Look for the books that follow as they introduce the wider Sith Universe. If Disney are serious, and I suggest $4 billion is serious, then I see them keeping it to the books. And, in Episodes 1 to 3 (not the "p" word) the origins were laid clear. With Lucas on board as an adviser to the films, I see Disney continuing the films and using the books that follow 7-9 as the films for after that. There are numerous 3 book storylines available.
  19. They were made after New Hope etc, but they were actually written before/at the same time period when the original timeline was drew up. Episode 4 was chosen as a stand alone film so it could be that if it didn't do good enough business to make the sequels. I think they made the best decision as starting with Episode 1 would not have made the money back then.
  20. And I still love it how people refer to Episodes 1 to 3 as PREQUELS in such a way that they were made as an add on to the original 3 films. Technically, they can be conceived as prequels as they were released after Parts 4 to 6. But, in actuality, they are simply Parts 1 to 3.
  21. I do wonder how long this purchase was in the works or agreed. I watched an episode of Inside West Coast Customs. It is a Car Customizing show on the Discovery channel centered around West Coast Customs which is in Corona (California). In an episode broadcast in the States on April 15th this year, they get shown around ILM for a special custom car build entitles "Vader's Drive". During the tour you see iconic figures from ILM productions, and you see a fleeting glimpse of a Mickey Mouse figure hugging Yoda!
  22. Twice in the same weekend? I have seen films at the cinema more than once, but usually leave a week between.
