    Hehe I'll be going as Alice from the puter game of the same name (Evil Alice in Wonderland sorta character with a big knife!)! Had the costume hanging around at home for ageees and been saving it for Halloween, but this will be far more entertaining :D

    Yep, there's been some discussion about that on the SM forums. They think it's down to Earls Court not updating the events listing.....well, let's hope so anyway ;)

    Just thinking back to what happened with Gmex - and how the venue didn't realise they had an event on lol.

    Now you're getting me worried Tim :p
    I'm sure it'll be fine, I just hope we can get some kind of answer with the exhibition and table soon.

    That thread's not moved since I posted - or hadn't yesterday!

    I need to get some accomodation sorted for when I come down!

    It's nearly upon us!!

    Hardly surprising, but Bill Nighy has cancelled. Still no word from Showmaster whether we can have a FanForce table and/or Fan Art exhibition either :(

    Seems unlikely I can make this event, pity :(

    Still, there's always next time.
    Hopefully I can go to Empire Day instead.

    Hmm I was hoping to make this one, though I'm not sure my finances will stretch to another stint in London so soon after CE :(
    Crazy train prices and i'm only an hour away!

    From jolly ole' Cambridge :p over-priced and overrated! You think they'd let us off with the ticket prices! :( not a bad idea with the pre-book though, stupidly I didn't think of that :oops:

    Shame that you can't make it Blue, but understandable. Still no word on whether we can have a fan art exhibition which is a nuisance and very disappointing. Argh well, we'll try again for another show ;)

    I'm not sure what time I'll be arriving on Saturday. I'll be coming with my Uncle and Aunt, so doubt it'll be that early knowing them :p
    I think Sunday though will be the busier day given the top guests they have coming on Sunday only.

    Welcome to the boards antderviso :D
    Yeah, LFCC has lots of vendors at the show, but not usually the official companies such as Lucasarts, WOTC/Hasbro etc. Expect more local UK-based vendors with varied stuff for sale, it's not a SW con so it'll be a mixed bag.

    So - are we meeting up then as a FF group?
    And who is actually going to this?

    Matt/Koren - you two coming? Any of the Delta Source mob?

    Matt (LT) - I am there from Friday till Monday daytime. If you want to meet up, that would be cool ...

    And no worries on table/art display - hopefully SM will be more interested next time. Shame, but nothing you can do. You worked enough on getting it going :cool:

    Greetings antderviso :)
    As Tim said, there will most definitely be dealers there. From what I've heard though, due to this show being in Earls Court 1 rather then the usual Earls Court 2, the dealers will be spread out a fair bit in different places, so you'll need a good walk round the venue just to make sure you don't miss anything ;)

    Tim, I wont be around on Friday due to prior engagements but I'll be around pretty much all of Saturday and I'll be staying over-night at a local hotel, so I'll be around in the evening too and of cause all-day Sunday. When I find out at what time we'll roughly be arriving on Saturday I'll let you know.
    It is a shame about the fan tributes plans being shelved (we assume) but Jamie said he'll try and speak to Jason during LF&CC and find out what happened with it and the possibilties of it actually happening at future (possibly Empire Day) shows.

    Thanks guys.

    I ran out of money at Excel so was unable to pick up a few items that I wanted. Hopefully I can pick them up here.

    Matt - cool, just let me know and I'll let you know where we are. Going to be interesting being at this con from a punter point of view :)

    Hehe.

    My plans have changed slightly. My Uncle & Aunt can no longer make it ( :( ), so I wont be staying the night at a hotel. None the less, I will still be there on Saturday (I aim to arrive for around 10-10:30) and Sunday (all day). What's more, I can now spend all my time with my fellow FanForcers....you lucky people! :p

    We don't want you now [face_talk_hand] [face_not_talking]

    We want Jamie! We want Jamie! We want ... wait ... :p

    But seriously, will be great to see you again, and Jamie too ;)
    And Matt and Koren better come or I'll cry ... Where are you M+K?

    Fine, I'll just stay in the corner with Billy Nomates :p

    Jamie can only make it on Sunday due to his jet-setting lifestyle of endless holidays. At least there'll be no one to annoy the comic book artists on Saturday ;)
    I'll get on the blower to see if and when M&K will be turning up. I think Sunday is gearing up to be the better of the two days, which is quite unusal for LF&CC so if M&K can make it for Sunday then we should have a good turn-out :D

    It's a definant no from me i'm afraid :( I went and did something stupid - like putting a deposit down on a house.

    Shame about the fan art related stuff too :( I'd like to hear what happened with those arrangements, oh well they hold these ones more often than most events so there is always next time :)
