    Definitely on for London. Possibly Birmingham (depends if I can persuade the family). Probably not Manchester (but you never know).

    maybe we can get some funds together and everyone in the midlands ( birmingham area ) chuck all of our gear in a hire van or something and do the manchester and London shows
    be nice to do the Birmingham one again too as it's just up the road

    Hey Guys
    Manchester Comic Con will be held at Manchester Central formerly G-MEX on Saturday 21st of July. its a One day event.

    At this Stage i cannot give out full details of the Events, Paul from Expo as you can Imagine is a very Busy guy dealing with other Expo Events and we wont get full details for this one until about a month to go.

    However this doesn't stop us tentatively signing up here and gauging interest, i realise this is very early to do this so i want to give every one the opportunity to be able to sign up and display their collection.

    Im not entirely sure how big of an arena The Manchester Expo covers but i believe it is not as big as the NEC event with this in mind we may have to Limit items displayed by individual members.

    The Areas id like to cover are

    THE REPLICA PROP FORUM
    Studio Scaled Models
    Screen Used
    Horror
    General Movies - non sci-fi
    General Sci-fi - Not Including Boba Fett, Predator
    Lifesize Stautes
    Special FX make up display

    THE DENTED HELMET
    Boba Fett

    THE HUNTERS LAIR
    Predator

    We had some amazing displays at the last event and im sure we can replicate that again :)

    Get in Early for the Manchester event guys

    Guys
    Just wanted to make sure this thread stays alive.

    Ive mailed the Organisors today about our attendence at the EXPO in Manchester this July as soon as a get a positive reply i will update this thread again.

    Im getting reports that the Manchester venue MANCHESTER CENTRAL is a little on the small side, can anyone confirm this ........... ??

    if this is indeed the case we may have to slightly down size our attendence and displays.

    i will of course confirm all this but it will possibly be on a first come first served basis.

    The November Show However is a different story we need more members with more props and this time we will be including the Hunters Lair

    OK guys this is now GO GO GO

    Please sign up if you interested in Coming along and displaying your Props.

    do not Include Fett or Predator related Items as these will be taken care of by the TDH and Lair.

    I will add more info as it comes in, there are a couple of issues we need to deal with that occured at the last event however we will discuss this as the time Draws near.

    There is the possibility of Limited space so i would suggest you get on the list to display nice and early to avoid disappointment, if you do get cut from the list you will have first option on the Big one in November
    Please make sure you can commit to the whole day before posting


    The are a couple of items i want to get produced in time for this event but need to clear it with Art and the staff first and they are ID CARDS with Lanyards and T-shirts


    lets see what your bringing Guys :)

    As I told you over TDH, I'll try to go to the November one, but I would need to know about how much money do a person needs to "survive" and drink a little bit too much in the UK for two to three days so I can get an idea about how much do I need to save.

    PS: I do not have any kind of Fett costume, but I do have a few BSG production made/screen used patches and BDUs.

    Having an RPF/TDH from Spain (well anywhere other than the UK) would be Fantastic, i dont really know how to answer your Question in all honesty, you can eat and drink here in the UK for as much or as little as you like.
    What i can do for you nearer the time is give you a link to the Hotel our Signers will be staying in and some RPF members that way your not going to be entirely on your Own the whole weekend. we will look after you though, it will be great to have you here

    Simon cant say ive ever designed one lol, but i know the guys that threw down in the last Tee thread really impressed, maybe talk to Art on a collaborative ground, and see if they can knock up an official UK RPF Tee?

    This is looking great already, reckon its worth an ask to Leigh to maybe bring Bob the Alien along? Be great to have him there, a sculptor with mad skills.

    WOW WOW WOW

    Hot news just in folks, im sure somewhere i have mentioned that i have secured a lifesized Hybrid ABC Warrior Robot for both Manchester and Birmingham, well as an added bonus for the Birmingham Event i have secured the services of Patrick Mills, who is very rarely seen on the comic/convention scene.

    Patrick Mills is the creator/ author of all 2OOOADs ABC WARRIOR Robot stories, Cinergi Films who made the Stallone Judge Dredd Movie had to get his permisson for the ABC Robot to be used in that Movie

    i cant tell you how excited i am about this .............. whoop whoop
