Okay, completely editing my post as I'm not allowed to mention events.

 

Richard Dean Anderson and Joe Flanigan at one event. I was there, but out of money.

 

And I didn't attend a certain convention despite being aware of it's existence and I missed out on John Rhys-Davies, Jean Claude Van Damme, Robert Englund, ...

I regret nothing. ;)

 

Although I do occasionally kick myself for not meeting/getting a photoshoot with James Marsters (and his then-peroxide blond hair!) at GMEX Manchester (and I didn't go to the first Hallowhedon so missed another shot there too). And although I met Ron Perlman when he came to LFCC several years back, I didn't get a photoshoot with him - arghh...

Interesting subject. Near the top would be Leslie Nielsen and Christopher Lloyd but i think my top regret would be not meeting Elisabeth Sladen.

There is a good list of them from CM just gone! I was holiday so could not make it! Have booked my holiday for the beginning of August next year, as not to miss out again!

stan lee :( imagine if lfcc got stan the man theyd be packed out!

That's the thing, you can't limit yourself to one venue without missing some people you'll regret. You can't win them all. Nor can you be in two places at once. There's plenty of guests I'd have love to have met who've only done Milton Keynes events, but on Bank Holidays its often more trouble than its worth getting there from where I am.

This is a great question.

 

Because of lack of funds, I didn't get to meet all Indy guests at LFCC 2008. I also missed out on Wolf Kahler due to the fact that I kept saying to myself "I'll meet him later". When I showed up, he was gone for the day.

The Lost Boys reunion at Collectormania 9, mainly because of Corey Haim.

 

I don't think I'd bother with obtaining the others now since I wont ever get a complete set. :(

Easy one.....Leonard Nimoy. I'm deeply upset that I missed him not once but twice. Unless SM can coax him out of retirement (which I'm BEGGING them to do) I have missed this opportunity forever! :crying:

Guests I wanted to meet at this year's Collectormania, but couldn't: Torri Higginson, Spice Williams, Dennis Lawson, Gillian Anderson and Julian Sands. Met John Rhys-Davies, Kenny Baker, Ariana Richards and Christopher Judge, though! :)

For me - Elizabeth Sladen at LFCC 2010. Guestwise it made more sense to go on the Saturday, as Liz was the only person there on the Sunday that I wanted to meet, and I could always meet her another time...

I must force myself to not regret meeting guests that attended before I started going to Cons. There are some amazing people from the years before I began but if I were to play that game I would be here forever.

But I can regret not meeting guests at Cons I was at and just didn't have the money to meet them. And top of that list would have to be Scott Bakula. How I passed up the opportunity to meet Sam Beckett himself, I'll never know. :no:

A few years ago I had the opportunity AND money of meeting Mark Hamill.

 

Need I say more?

Not many, except missing the first Twilight convention. Please get Ashley Greene and Kellan Lutz again.
