Guys back off, I am sure that pic of the 3 bottles and a dozen beer cans (all empty) was just per guest. lol!

Great pics. Looks like a lot of fun. Where you guys sitting behind someone's booth? What are the puppets from? What a spectacular ocean view. Hopefully one of you secured those LedyI from Marco, so who do I need to send the check to? rofl

lol! I think several of those beers were mine, from the saturday night. This was after we got back from the sci fi pub quiz, where a lot of beers were drunk, and then the after show party, and then a night club.
so those were just a few beers had once back at Alex's place. The wine bottles were Laura I think, and the pic was meant as a suggestion of the fun had, not a total tally of beers drunk  Very Happy

The coastline along Scarborough is stunning Jim and the town itself is quite picturesque with lots of old architecture. It also has an antiquated 'cliff lift' which is a tram shaped cable car that pulls you up the cliff face, instead of taking the stairs, which are a killer. However you do kind of take your life in your hands by using the cliff lift too :cool laugh:

Bryan, the puppets are from the old 1960's tv shows created by Gerry Anderson, called Thunderbirds, Captain Scarlet and Stingray. The are string puppets with animatronic faces, which were state of the art back in the 60's.

Great to see some of the Gerry Anderson puppets among all the SW as well as a few Daleks  dalek

Chris, thanks for answering. I will have to check the thunder mans out sometime. I am sure now it may come off as a bit corny, but who knows.

As I was looking over the pics again I saw the girl dressed as what I am guessing is deadpool in the pic of jabba on his throne. (She is on the far right). Were there a lot of people in costume there?

Here are some intro's of some of Gerry Anderson's biggest shows, for you Bryan.
yeah they look pretty cheesy and dated now  Suspect  
But they must have been amazing to kids watching back in the late sixties  Smile











There were loads of folks in costume running around Bryan, including vader, Chewie, threepio, Princess leia (slave and white gown) as well as loads of guys dressed in 'Steampunk' costumes.

Still in Holland, just prior to our journey to the Scarborough Sci-Fi Convention

The morning after the night before......sorry a bit out of focus, can't blame the camera this time. Very Happy

Some dude with beard sorting out his figures on that same morning....

9:00 AM: Walking to the convention hotel enjoying Yorkshire's morning sunshine ..
Sci-Fi Scarborough 2015 - Page 4 20150314_092440_zpsx1qwmnwc

Our glass cabinet loaded with 1) complete Kenner run + Luke Bespin focus (Alex), 2) complete Droids + Ewoks collection (Stef), 3) Darth Vader focus (Chris), 4) Ledy figures (Marco).

Some of us taking collecting too seriously while worshipping their holy collections. Very Happy

I enjoyed the convention very much , the relaxed atmosphere, the cosplay girls, seeing David Prowse and Oola, but most of all it was great meeting Alex, Chris, Stef, Geoff, Laura, and many friends of Alex in real life and having lots of fun.
It was a blast. Sure I will join next year as well.  cheers

Cheers

Cool pics Marco cheers

The cabinet looks great with a selection of everyone's loose figs. Nice display idea.

Cool shots of Scarborough and its Victorian buildings.
I only just noticed there was a band playing in that pavillion/bandstand.

Love the shots of the Space 1999 Eagle, costumes and set Cool

Very nice Supergirl too cheers
