Had a good time at the show too - picked up a couple of boxes and autographs. The show was very full on Saturday but a bit quieter on Sunday. Got the NSU specials and another years subscription, talked to Jason from Unstoppable cards and Jason and Liza from Cult Stuff - who had a LOT of tables this year. Got a quick sketch from Carolyn Edwards, saw Paul from Umbrella cards - there were a lot of card dealers at the show and somehow I didn't get any Tudors (I meant to but time ran out)

For various reasons, I could only do the Sunday this year (back to the full weekend next year I hope!) but I still had an enjoyable time at the show - first port of call was the Cult-Stuff Zone, then on to NSU, where I had my annual reunion with Harris, and met Batman and Cliff and Carol Tooker - I bought one of Cliff's card sets and got him to sign one of the cards!
There seemed to be a fair number of people milling about, though most dealers I spoke to seemed to think it was quieter than usual. I did pop into the ComicCon section and couldn't really see much difference between it and the Memorabilia section. The Artist Alley had been moved in there, and there were a couple of exhibits and stands in there, but otherwise, it was dealers and cosplayers.
Artist Matt Dixon was nicely positioned in the area between ComicCon and Memorabilia, and he said he had had a great weekend - it's nice to see artists doing well at the show!
As I've posted elsewhere, I did manage to inexpensively finish my Character Options Doctor Who Series 3 minifigs set, and I picked up a few bits and pieces - including a copy of NSU Vol 1 Issue 1! Made interesting reading on the LOOOOOOONG train ride home!
Bumped into Hammer at the NSU stand, amongst a fair number of other old-timers! and had several interesting chats with Paul from Umbrella and Steve from London Cigarette Card Company, as well as the fascinating behind the scenes chat with Jason and Lisa of Cult-Stuff.
Thanks to all, especially the aforementioned Harris, Jason and Lisa for making me welcome at the show! I will be offering prizes on upcoming episodes of UK CardCast thanks to the generosity of Cult-Stuff, so watch this space!
Au Res.,
Paul

That's good to hear. It's a great show, even if last year was a bit better (for us, anyway) then this year.

As always, the show was a lot of fun and I really enjoy seeing a lot of familiar faces. It was interesting having Comic Con combined with Memorabilia this time (I know it's not new but it's the first time for November and new for me).

We'll have a full report and pictures coming on the blog soon.

It was Great that Cult-Stuff were displaying Breygent items and that I was able to pick up some of the Optispex items

In addition to the photos on the blog, I thought I'd post a few here that might not mean as much to our blog viewers. Razz
