The discussion of the Alien series of films and the props used in them is the aim, but if it's got Big Bugs and Big Guns, then they are welcome too!

Looks like a full house!

We usually manage to leave kit around the display table. Sometimes, like last year, we had a bonus as the table next to us never turned up so we had some breathing room. Generally, we usually have enough space to stack some suitcases around the table.

I'm hopefully going to be on site about 8.30 to coordinate the sign-in. I'll send a round robin on FB with my number in case anyone doesn't have it.

My mistake. Apparently the summer holidays will have started by then so can be there some time in the morning now.

Right, pre-booked a car parking spot for the Sunday.

Gary, just re-reading the thread - by the look of it you would have to buy your son a ticket as all the bands have been accounted for.

Just so you can take it into account, the wristbands give access before and after the show times but tickets don't. (Mainly just so you don't leave stuff and cant get back in, although generally we can sort things out) He would probably have to come in and out by the main doors but thats not really an issue.

Just a heads up for you.

Come and find us. We have a table in one of the main halls by the cosplay zone/stage. Would be good to meet up!

Hadn't been to LFCC for years and am impressed in how they seem to b le making better use of space - didn't seem quite as crowded as before. Was quite busy so didn't really get to say hi, did see someone on my travels, apologies for not grabbing you for a chat. :)
Managed to grab Gorman's autograph and got pics with some good costumes (the family with a load lifter and junior marine in homemade armour, and a Ripley who seemingly had the same idea of having a facehugger on her back).
Hope you all had fun and enjoyed the cooler air today. :D

Down and clear!

Another successful drop, aside from a couple of cases of acute dehydration and vitamin C deficiency ;)

See you all soon!

Cheers,
