    Looks like you guys have a great line up for this comic con. I wish I could make it over for it but money is tight at the moment.

    OK - count one Jedi in costume for London too! I'll be with TimB.

    Will rally the Northerners to see if there is any interest...

    I will however be collecting for the Starlight Childrens Foundation Charity on both of the days, unless anyone has any problems with that?

    Welcome aboard Jase :D
    Getting as much support and visitors from the other chapters would be great!!
    I'm sure we can get some stuff planned for the evenings too.

    And would be nice to see you there Steve. The LFCC wont disappoint ;)

    Paul (Voren) alerted me to some new guest announcements that have been published.
    The big one being Elijah Wood

    The others are:
    Sean Patrick Flanery - Young Indiana Jones & SG1
    Jerry Robinson - Creator of the Joker & Comic Book Artist
    Kenneth Cope & Marty Hopkirk - Randell & Hopkirk


    The Mark Hamill rumours are interesting. I know for a fact that Mark Hamill has been linked to a SM event for years, but it seems his price charging policy is the main put-off for SM, and I don't blame them. £60 for an autograph is too much but I should point out this may be speculation only.

    Yep, we will definitely be there in some capacity. Over the coming weeks we should hopefully have most things sorted. And there will be a few of us in full costume too, including our very own Vader :D

    Sorry about your Ebay lose. Hopefully another one will come up shortly but good luck with the costume.

    Darth_Konikus (Matt?) - that will be so cool!!!!

    Cant wait to meet the Dark Lord himself! He was a pupil of mine until he turned to evil, helped the Empire hunt down and destroy the Jedi Knights. However, if he attempts to strike me down, I shall become more powerful than he can possibly imagine...mwhuuaaaaaaaaaa!!!!

    Ben K's in the house - and the sly old dog has a blaster up his sleeve! (how uncivilised...o_O)

    Darth_Konikus (Matt) is the man with the stunning Vader suit, so I hope after I've built everyones hopes up he will be able to attend now ;)

    Most of us will be there for both Saturay and Sunday, so whatever day you decide to come Carn, we'll be there :cool:

    A blaster!! very sly of you Old Ben :p

    !!!!!!!!NEWS FLASH!!!!!!!!

    We have managed to secure a free of charge table at this year's London Film & Comic Con and later on at the Collectormania G-Mex 2 show in Manchester :D

    Please give a huge thank you to Paul (a.k.a Voren) who was able to discuss things with the Showmasters team, and also a huge thank you to Jason Joiner for his very generous offers [:D] :)

    However, we still have to work very hard. We need to make these tables spectacular!! We can do this firstly by getting as many members as poss manning the table throught-out the show, and even better if they are in costume ;) Heck, I may even get my Jedi robes out of the closet.
    Secondly, we need to dress the table and backing wall so that we stand out and attract the curious folk. I'm open to all suggestions, and of cause I will see about getting some of my artwork used as posters/banners etc.

    The idea is for us and Showmasters to form a partnership which we can both benefit from. Showmasters love our efforts and fandom nature, and value what we are already trying to do. So if you have personal websites, it would be a great start if you could start linking to the Showmasters webpages.

    Please feel free to post or contact me if you have any suggestions or questions. Let's get things moving :D

    WICKED NEWS!!! My armour is on it's way too so you'll have a scout trooper there too. And I can always take my jedi outfit too if I fancy a change. Matthew will definetly be wearing Vader. I can't wait , especially with the dissapointment of not be able to make it to Germany. Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!![face_dancing]

    We'd need something big to go in the center of the table that would aract attention. Anyone got any props or anything that we could use?

    I'll be there, all Jedi'd up :D

    great - beginning to take shape and looking HOT! Well done dudes!

    There will also be some Jedi in costume from the French Rebel Legion Base too on the Saturday (they are coming to worship at the alter that is Carrie Fisher [face_love]), so its gonna be one busy stand I can see, with no lack of people willing to help man it.

    Great news :D
    I think we can't thank Showmasters (Paul and Jason) enough, for their kindness and generosity.
    So FF-UK: London has a focal point at the show :)
    I may be able to get some stuff for the table (Matt knows what I mean, I can't post the details really on here, am waiting on someone), but I think it would be nice to have -

    a) stuff on the table that people can pick up and take away - leaflets, business cards, etc. You guys are lucky in having Matt as both a member and the CR of FF-UK: London, he really is a great artist, and that will be a bonus when it comes to stuff like this ;) :cool:

    b) Something to really show all the various parts of Fan Force - not just the fact we meet in real life, but the creative side of FF, like Fan Art and Comics / Fan Fiction / Fan Film / Costuming / etc, so maybe there could be some of that available for people to see.

    I can print some stuff at my school, one of the perks of taking graphics. I have a few star wars comics such as
    [image=http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v256/Ell_the_Ewok/ewokscomiccopy.jpg]
    Ewoks
    and I'll do some more over the holidays.

    Also, does anyone have laptop or PC we could use? Have asideshow of pictures and videos from meets etc.
