Disaster Strikes! Eeeek!

I have a story to tell you. I'm not telling it because I want sympathy, it's too late for that. I'm telling it because I am trying to rebuild my collection. I had an absolutely HUGE collection of memorabilia and I mean huge. From pretty much every franchise you could think of. It was an... Continue Reading →

Costume Recycling

Its been a long standing tradition in both TV and Film for costumes to be recycled. It happens both in the US and the UK and I'm sure elsewhere too. Three fairly well-known examples are below. First we have this space suit that appeared in the 1964 movie 'First Men In The Moon'. It then... Continue Reading →

FCD ‘Out of the Ashes’

I honestly do not know where to begin. This has to be the best event I have been to in years! FCD 2015 was a great event.

Collectormania 15

One of the best CMs for a long time. There were many great guests to choose from, but financially I could not meet all the ones I would like to so I had to choose carefully.... First came Avery Brooks, from Star Trek:DS9. Such a lovely dude even though he seemed a bit spaced out.... Continue Reading →

LFCC ’08

The year of chaos! Patrick Stewart of Star Trek: TNG fame was scheduled last minute to put in a short appearance. Could I get near him? Hell no. Every Trekkie in the UK was there it seemed!! I would get my chance a few years later. Instead, I met Peter Davison, the 5th Doctor, his... Continue Reading →

Collectormania 13

It ¬†was around now that Collectormania started to outgrow the shopping centre. There were at least 48 guests this year! A fair few were regulars and fan favourites from Star Wars, Red Dwarf etc. The cast of Torchwood played a big part too. There was no real main draw for me this time.   I... Continue Reading →
