    Sounds like a good idea Coz.

    I'm guessing it's similar to Collectormania?

    I've got mixed feelings about previous MCM Expos - on the lines of "I'm getting too old for this..."

    The London one is overtaken now by young cosplayers - not complaining as such, just it's their world now, not mine, and it's uncomfortable being there. Much of the show is aimed at them. Showmasters put on a more mixed event for young and old fans. Last one I went to I spent literally an hour then went to central London to feed squirrels in a park. I had more fun there. That said I was on my tod and didn't know a work colleague was there too. So maybe with October one it'll be more fun with people around.

    The one previous I still haven't gotten over and have daily therapy sessions. Count Dooku. Singing. Badly. With lots of technical problems too. And then he didn't want to talk about anything afterwards but his music so he had a room of shocked fans who couldn't ask him anything but about the horror he had unleashed on us. Ask Matt (Lord T) about it - we walked out on Christopher Lee it was that bad. I need another therapy session.

    That said, I will come to Manchester 'cos well Showmasters have really let us down. And I will seek therpy in October with MCM Expo London, in case I am just getting old and grumpy.

    I guess becuase Collectormania isnt gonna happen anytime soon, this is the next best thing in the North nearest to me (ie. not Glasgow).

    I hope to get to this one.

    Tim - I'll bring some nuts for the squirrels for ya O:)
