    It may be a while off yet, and proceeding CE, but this year's LF&CC is already shaping up very nicely.

    The big guest thus far is none other then Captain Picard himself; Patrick Stewart :D
    And.......................................... two actors from Heroes, which is great. Lots more to come I'm sure, and tomorrow there's another big guest announcement.

    **hangs head in shame**
    Now what I should have said is: 'The big guest thus far is none other then Captain Picard & Professor X himself; Patrick Stewart :D
    Plus he voiced the evil dooer in the recent TMNT film and he was in Excalibur. And he drinks Earl Grey tea and is an all-round leg-end, so I think it's safe to celebrate his announcement here ;)

    True, but from my vast experience that can be said of any other show and show organiser :p
    Only time will tell, but I'm more excited by the Heroes guests then anything right now :D

    see,i wouldn't know anything about that... having not seen a single episode of what could potentially be a life-changing experience for me.
    if only there was someone i knew who had a couple of episodes lying around...?
    and an AT-ST...

    I'll be getting the title of this thread change as the new date for the show is September 1st-2nd and it'll be at Earl's Court 1, not the usual EC2.

    There will also be a celebration of the 30th Anniversary of Star Wars at the show, with the Jason Joiner/Gray Kurtz collection (or parts of it) on display, and of cause lots of other guests, talks and dealer tables (and maybe more).

    Currently there are no plans for a FanForce table, but there may be another opportunity to showcase some of our fan art and maybe get some promotion for the FanForce in some shape and form.

    Stay tuned folks ;)

    For all the latest guest news, check out the LF&CC'07 forum at the Showmasters board:

    Not sure, but try [link=http://www.activehotels.com]www.activehotels.com[/link] and search for 'Earl's Court', there may be one or two bargins on there ;)

    Will be great to see you there Laura............. I shouldn't say this but you could almost be Koren's sister from the West, lol.

    EDIT: Just make sure you book for Sept 1st-2nd, not the 8th-9th. I know Tim has a history of getting the dates wrong for this one too :p

    Koren was the Scout Trooper running around on Saturday on behalf of the FanForce, with her hubby Matt the Stromtrooper ;)

    I'll be commutting but I think Tim will be staying at a hotel so might be worth asking him what his plans are :)

    We haven't had rats in years! Its ferrets you oxygen thief!
    Laura, you could stay at ours for free and get a lift in the car. Save you money and the worry of having to treck everywhere on foot, although we're about a 15 to 20 minute drive from earls court. Alternatively, if you wanna pay for a hotel there should be pleanty around. There better be some SW guests announced.

    The best local hotel for Earls Court is the IBIS btw, it's certainly the closest if you ignore all the smaller one man band hotels that are in and arond Earls Court, and it's nicer than the dump of a place next to it, :D

    I'm coming down to this one - just cross posting a thread over from the North board to see if anyone else from the North is coming. As yet - not sure what my accomodation will be, but would be cool to grab some drinks, coffee or lunch with any FFers coming along!

    Hopefully the organisers will take on-board our input :D

    They've now added/combined this event with Sportmania, a sporting version of Collectormania if you will.
