    I can't make it to the Manchester one, but I am going to the Milton Keynes one this weekend.

    Holy crap, I just noticed, they have a replica Bumblebee there this time! I'm so getting my picture with it.

    Don't forget your Strokes t-shirt.
    The BB replica hasnt been announced yet for the Manchester event.
    I can't wait.

    This'll be my 4th or 5th, I'm not quite sure.

    That was something Bay asked him to do. I figure it must be that extreme metal doesn't sit well on the movie going public. Plus I doubt Sam would've pulled if he'd played "The Restraining Order Blues" at her...

    I figure they're slacking. Simon I know is gonna be there, he mentioned it in his blog somewhere. Dunno about the rest. Like I say, I'd like to get a few comics and whatnot signed, plus scope out some of the dealers and see if I can land some nice stuff :)

    You might want to PM TheSpacebridge.
    He's had stalls at the Mk one for (I don't know how long) and he always has loads of awesome stuff. (I bagged 2 of my TF grails from him in one show)

    See if he will be at the Manchester event.

    Is it your first Collectormania?

    Not at all. Its awesome.
    The only thing that went wrong on my first trip is I tripped over a replica of Doctor Who's K-9 and fell flat on my face. That hurt.

    I would assume its the same with all the events. Getting Guest autographs is a little tricky. Price wise they range from £15-£30-ish depending on how famous they are. (When Shatner was at MK, I believe he was £35). If its busy, they give you an electronic ticket, and call it out when its your turn.

    I'm sure you'll love it.

    Only signing I'm interested in is Furman to be honest. Not really a big autograph guy. Get him to sign a few comics, then go around looking for Transformers ;)  hehehe

    Yup, Chris Barrie and Craig Charles are confirmed guests. :D 

    Methinks a trip is in order, do-able from Darlo in a day.

    Nice one. Reckon Craig can stay off the smack long enough?

    Cool, you'll have to let me know if you come down. And I can belt you around the head. Darlo scum ;)
