Is he actually allowed to do this so called convention without permission from Lucus or Disney?? I noticed his little disclaimer at the bottom not connecting the event with Disney or Lucusfilm :!:
I noticed the main attraction of this set up is Dave Prowse, a guy who fell out with Lucus :!:

This is next weekend. We are going on the Saturday. Anyone else going? According to the "fact sheet" I got sent yesterday, it says there will be "vintage toy stands". Does anyone know who this will be?

To be fair it looks like the organisers have up a lot into this. Not quite celebration but the closest I'll get.

The organiser is a cock. I feel sorry for the guys who are working with him. I won't be supporting this event.

7000+ people a day expected to attend, only 600 car parking spaces allocated for the event and Man Utd are playing on Saturday afternoon just up the road. I pity anyone with Saturday afternoon tickets trying to get in on time.

Yep the organiser is an absolute A1 arrogant prick :!: The best thing he ever did was selling up his collection! I hope his event goes 'tits up' so he stays out our community for good :!: :!:

I'm surprised he hasn't had some nasty legal letters from Disney - perhaps they're waiting for the event to make some money before bankrupting him.

I'm going to start an event:

MASSIVE PROFIT MAKING STAR WARS SHOW WITH STAR WARS STUFF AND STAR WARS THINGSATHON*
*not connected to Star Wars in any way

Not going to wash in any court when Disney come knocking.
