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

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
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
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.

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.
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 ..
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.
Geoff, Stef and Chris around our collector table. Geoff brought his impressive cardback collection and Palitoy Death Star.
Unique shot: Ledy RR rocket Fett united with his Trilogo brother.
Outside view, the convention site was a pretty Victorian style hotel at the Yorkshire coast.
Geek quiz on Satarday night. Still wondering those were repro.
Some impressions from the convention...
Some dude posing with cosplay babe..
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.
