SCI-FI SCARBOROUGH 2015

I grew up watching Gerry Anderson programs with my Grandad, so to see the amazing display of all the puppets was awesome! Especially the Captain Scarlet stuuff, he was always my favourite Very Happy

I like Droids

I really like Droids

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

I really, really like Droids!!!

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Not sure about this one though, looks a bit gay!

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Femi Taylor!!!!! Marco was quite convinced that Femi Taylor (Oola) was infact in love with him, this is inaccurate though, it was obvious that she much preferred me, I mean, just look at the way she's totally checking me out! They say a picture says a thousand words, well this picture says 'Oola thinks I'm more awesome than I think I am..... which is a lot' cheeky

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

And Oola wasn't the only one after a piece!

A particularly hot Leia Slave Girl indeed, with a very hot Femi Taylor!

Her boyfriends a right ugly fat bastard though!

Here's our team on the day, Chris, Stef, God Me, Marco & Geoff What a Face

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

And here is our display cabinet, This contained a full Kenner run with a couple of variations thrown in, a full set of Ewoks & Droids figures brought by Stef including Vlix of course! A collection of rare Darth Vader variations brought by Chris which included, Glasslite, Taiwan only, Lili Ledy, Top Toys and a Takara thrown in by Stef. Marco provided an amazing set of Lili Ledy VHTF variants, a Jawa, 1978 R2, Burgundy Bib & Squid and an RR Fett which was stood next to my RR Tri-Logo Fett, making this the only place on Earth you could see the two together! Very Happy  I also brought the Luke Bespin collection along and some Mexican Bootlegs What a Face

And a few famous faces, me and Marco got to meet David 'Darth Vader' Prowse clapping

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

I also got to meet Paul Blake (Greedo) I noticed that he was actually slyly giving me the finger!!!!

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

I am impressed by Paul's hand gesture!

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Final I came up with the highly original idea of shooting him, something I imagine I'm probably the first person to suggest this to him. I was originally planning to have this picture taken with my vintage Han Solo blaster I bought from Clint solely for the purpose of this picture, but like a daft twat, I forgot to bring it Sad
Paul was a top bloke and promised he would spend the tenner I paid for the pics on Alcohol Smile

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Captain Ant! (Self proclaimed Captain) This is the guy who made the giant Darth Vader cake, he modelled his image based loosely on me I think What a Face

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

I got to hold a few figures that I never thought I would get chance to hold which was nice, I'm still suprised that Stef and Marco haven't realised that they now own repros Razz

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

The General got to meet another General..... ZOD!!!

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

And me and Marco flirted with Super Girl Smile

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

I got to meet David Graham as well who did the voice of Parker & Brains in Thunderbirds which was nice Smile

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

We also met Danny John Jules (Cat from Red Dwarf) Although Marco had no idea who he was haha Smile

And the team again!

Our glass cabinet loaded with 1) complete Kenner run + Luke Bespin focus (Alex), 2) complete Droids + Ewoks collection (Stef), 3) Darth Vader focus (Chris), 4) Ledy figures (Marco).

Some of us taking collecting too seriously while worshipping their holy collections. Very Happy

Geoff, Stef and Chris around our collector table. Geoff brought his impressive cardback collection and Palitoy Death Star.

I enjoyed the convention very much , the relaxed atmosphere, the cosplay girls, seeing David Prowse and Oola, but most of all it was great meeting Alex, Chris, Stef, Geoff, Laura, and many friends of Alex in real life and having lots of fun.
It was a blast. Sure I will join next year as well.  cheers

Cheers

Forgot to post the autographs I got! I definately wanted David Prowse because I used to have it as a child and no longer do, so needed to get that back! Also, I have James Earl Jones's so thought it would be nice Smile
I also got David Graham's as well because he only wanted a fiver and I just thought it would be nice and I am a huge fan, and wanted to take something home that was Gerry Anderson related Smile

Spock Tribute

Finally got round to uploading this! I was given the amazing chance to make a Leonard Nimoy tribute for the Sci-Fi Scarborough convention that would be played on the big screen above the stage in the grand hall! Quite a daunting task! 50 hours of work went into the 4 minute film I created, something I'm very proud of Smile
After it had finished the orchestra played the Star Trek main theme from the original series.
I know not everyone is on Facebook, so some won't have seen this Smile
