London Film & Comic Con Invasion (MCM replacement) 17, 18, 19 July

    Friday 17th, Saturday 18th and Sunday the 19th of July

    London Film and Comic Con

    http://www.londonfilmandcomiccon.com/

     

    Many of us have felt underwhelmed by the MCM expo the past few times we’ve been and what with the huge hike in price this year, this season we propose a change of scene!
    Seeing as it’s a little further away than May, it gives all us poor soldiers more time to save our pennies!

    £40 for the weekend:

    I’m up for this pencil me in :)
    Just wondering about the hostel though, there is a St Christophers Inn in Hammersmith just down the road from the Olympia where LFCC is taking place. Just wondering if it would be more logical to go there? I know the London Bridge one is nice but it is on the other side of london lol. Just a thought :)

    My birthday so deffo!

  • I’m potentially interested and should be able to get time off to do so, especially if others like you Hamster coming up from this neck of the country … hate traveling alone

    Yeah, Im planning on getting the bus up, (over night sleeper) leaves truro at like 10pm and gets into London Victoria on the Friday at like 6am. Unless I get a big job between now and then then I would get the sleeper train.

  • So far it’s a big maybe for me…

    Just wondering will somebody be organising hostel stuff as I would imagine that to book early would be best for getting the best price possible?

    Hi Everybody,

    It is with a very heavy heart I have to announce that I will not be going to LFCC in July.

    As some of you know when I am not blowing up spaceships, adjusting pictures to make model/actresses/actors look more like what the director wanted when he filmed them, I am the part time carer for my dad, who suffers from a number of medical issues namely neuropathy, which is a degenerative condition related to the nervous system, and has slowly been reducing his mobility since having a stroke a few years ago.

    Now during my last visit to MCM in May, he had a fall and has sort of increased the rate of degeneration, this has since meant he requires constant care from me and the rest of my family when they can (this is also why I haven’t been chatting much on Skype).

    But however much extra help we am now getting from professional carers, I feel to leave him for a weekend in his current condition would not be fair on him or the rest of my family (as the carers only come around twice a day, sort of mornings and late evening) if I were to  come up in London to see you lovable lot, spening the time having fun, smoking the best cigars I can get my hands on and enjoying a decent bottle of Jack Daniels.

    So, I thought I would post this now than hope everything will be better by LFCC and find out it isn’t and let people down, something that has happened in the past to other toy soldiers.

    However at this time I am looking into booking sort of specialist 24 hour care for him for October’s MCM. So you haven’t got rid of my just yet, but this is going to be an on going thing.

    I do ask please do not post anything about this on facebook as my dad is on my facebook, and he would be the first person to tell me to go to london and have fun as your only young once, but as a pointed ear fellow once said “The needs of the many out weight, the needs of the one” :)

    Cheers
