Exeter Film & Comic Con.

Post by cantina_patron on Sun Jun 19, 2016 9:00 pm

Are any of our UK members able to attend this event? [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

I'll be there on Saturday & Sunday mornings in order to get some autographs, satisfy my daughters desire to meet Rusty Goffe (as an Oompa Lumpa, not a SW charcter lol!  ) & scout for vintage goodies. 

I'll aim to take some pics of the event to share here. Very Happy

Looks like it would be fun. Unfortunately, it may be a little too far, for me to make it.

Enjoy, and good hunting. rockon

She did indeed Andy. Very Happy Beth was a little shy, but Rusty was very friendly and engaged her in conversation. I'll post a proper pic tomorrow, but here's one where Rusty was having a bit of fun with her.

Rusty counted to three for me to take the photo, then covered her face as I pressed the shutter.  cheeky

Thanks Andy, Clint & Chris.

Here's the proper pic of Beth with Rusty & her autographed pic.

There were a couple of stalls with a decent selection of vintage SW. One of them had a moc Trilogo Jawa, but it was a little out of my price range. cheeky

Thanks James, and yes, Beth is a fan BIG TIME (& Roald Dahl books in general). When I mentioned that I had met an Oompa Loompa to Beth a few years ago, everytime she see's the film I get asked to point out Rusty. So when Beth got the chance to finally meet him, it was a little dream come true for her. Very Happy

I didn't do a very good job with this but I tried to make Beth a Oompa Loompa What a Face

lol! That's great James. Beth initially pulled a bit of a face, but she does like it and found it quite funny.
