London film and comic con this weekend (28-30th july)

Postby pizzathehutt » Wed Jul 26, 2017 2:33 pm

Anyone going to this this weekend?

I'm tempted to go first thing Saturday morning, I've not been in 3 years and the last time I went star wars stuff was really overpriced but there were still a few bargains to be had.

Looks like a good line-up for any of those who fancy queuing up to meet the stars, Pammy will be there :lol:

I hadn't looked at the guest list until now. Wow, what a great list of names. There's as many non-SW people I'd like to meet as SW. Ian Livingstone (not signing?), John Cleese (total and complete utter legend) and Kevin Smith (Clerks. 'Nuff said). Surprised to See Ian McDiarmid charge a weighty £60 a squiggle now where as good old Jeremy Bulloch still available for a score.

The thought of paying for a ticket to get in then spending the entire day in queues does no delight and the fact that Cleese and McDiarmid are only there on the Saturday (sold out) means I won't be going. Damn my lack of planning as I'd have gone to this. Still, that's 15 hours of queuing I've saved myself, I guess.

Prices for autographs are funny aren't they and do fluctuate somewhat. The Alan T actor who played K2SO in Rogue One was at least triple at Celebration. I think Iain McD was double that also at Orlando.

I went to one a few years ago and saw joe calzaghe and Stephen Hendry sat next to each other looking really cheesed off :lol:

Queued up for a mate and met checkov from star trek who may aswell have looked like he was trying to work out a really difficult sum in his head the whole time.

I met Alex winter and Corey Feldman, both were complete dicks!

All the vintage was priced high IMO... I didn't see a bargain anywhere.
The signings were pretty well organised though and I managed to get a fair few:

Mads Mickleson - Galen Erso
Peter Mayhew - Chewbacca
Alan Harris - bossk
Colin Hunt - prune face
Dickey Beer - biker scout
Jimmy Vee - R2D2
Warwick Diamond - Jawa
Deep Roy - Droopy

I got a pretty low number to grab Alan Turdyk's scribble, but he didn't show up till 11:30 and was only at signing 50 by 3pm!!! Another time maybe...

A few pics:
