    Great Guests experiences

    Alicia Witt was really lovely in 2017. Hope she comes back again cos missed the gig she did when she was over got LFCC so want to catch her next time. Maybe this is something Showmasters could think about if there are other acting guests who are also musicians. Could have a gig after the con on the sat night.

    Gold Pass wishes

    This is Britain. Companies charge what people are daft enough (including me) to pay. If people are buying gold passes in decent number there is no incentive to make them better. Sadly.

    Gold Pass wishes

    Ok let me rephrase. ' I'd just be happy if the STAFF explained the gold pass rules to the VOLUNTEERS at the show so we actually get what we paid for.

    LFCC 2019

    Did anyone see any posters/flyers with the 2019 (summer) date on? Seem to remember last year the date was on a banner on the way out but didn't see anything this year.

    LFCC 2018: Highs and Lows

    There seems to be a newer type of 'dealer' now at the shows. Previously autograph dealers would get things signed to sell on. Now there are an increasing number of people who are offering to got to the show get things signed for people and charging for this service. This isnt a problem with the bigger guests as you are limited to 5 items but on the smaller guests there is no limit. With one guest I was stuck behind someone getting 16 items signed for people - all with specific pen colour and differences in what they wanted to be written. So annoying when you are second in the queue and still have 10mins+ wait. Maybe SM could bring in a blanket 5 items limit at one go - if you want more you can re-queue.

    Latest Guest Announcement - RAY PARK

    Is th shop still having problems. No option to buy DP or talk ticket still.
  10. Got some update myself. Apparently Salo Gardner never played Trinto Duaba in ANH. He played an unnamed human character at the bar. The Trinto Duaba mask/costume was never available in London when Salo was there and was only filmed in USA on pickups. Seems like the Trinto Duaba character only got attatched to Salo due to the similarity in facial features. Confusingly, Salo did play a character named as Trinto Duaba in TFA! The upshot of this is that it's likely Kim Falkenburg played Trinto Duaba, Djhas Phur and one of the Cantina band. Not sure about the Duros. Possibly also Arleil Schous/Wolfman. :-s
  11. Thought they played Djhas Puhr not Trinto Duaba?

    Midlands Event

    There was a showmasters con at Birmingham Hilton Metropole once - had decent guests but small halls. Issue is size of con that could be held in Brum with NEC group venues contracted to another con organiser. Would have to be stadium-type events like collectormanias at MKDons stadium - personally not my cup of tea.
  15. It's actually July 15th-17th 2016 which is quite worrying as that is exactly 1 year from now. Will the summer LFCC2016 be happening the same week as this? As for the Spring event, I showed the ad to many people over the weekend and, apart from being surprised it was announced so quietly, some had reservations about it. Still, I'm sure SM are probably in some (advanced) talks already if they have chosen to advertise this now Next summers LFCC will be 22-24 July (It was written on Gold Pass goodie bags). yeah provisionally - i wouldn't book a hotel if i were you with history of date changes recently.
