Great day had by myself, missus & little one. Loads of Star Wars characters wandering round.

Grabbed 5 more signatures for my collection. 

Tim Rose - Admiral Akbar
Michael Carter - Bib Fortuna
Stephen Constantino - Gam Guard
John Morton - Dak Ralter 
Kenny Baker

Also dug a Warok and a white Chief Chirpa out of bucket of beaters for £6.  Very Happy

Its the 99th Garrison, I think its like the UKG (501st) but its more for the Midlands/ Northern England.

Looks like a great day, I was following the 99th garrison feed on facebook.

That's them, Gorneesh.

There were loads dressed up at this event, which I thought added a lot to it. Rather than it just being a money spinning event for the toy sellers and celebs there was a lot more interaction with the kids and big kids.

1st time I'd seen a C3P0 suit up close too. Was pretty cool. (Not for the bloke inside)

That looked like a really cool event Andrew  Smile I like the Leia Boushh Disguise costume and of course the fett and Dengar are just awesome!! I didn't notice at first that the lady kneeling was Leia in Poncho outfit  Smile 

I went to a small convention in Plymouth yesterday, I thought about posting some pics up, but this seems like a good place to put em, if you don't mind mate  Very Happy 

sorry about the pic quality, but I only had my phone on me  Embarassed
 
there were some cool costumes at the event and I managed to pick up a few vintage figures too  Smile

Not a problem, Chris. Some cracking pictures of Plymouth.

I met Paul Blake (Greedo) in Cardiff and was a great laugh and more than happy to talk to you. Coincidentally I had my "Han Shot First" Tshirt on which he appeared to be fully behind the cause.
