No, suppose not. in other words more repeat performances. Come on, please, people keep offering suggestions every year and we seem to get the same people over and over and over again. What was last year? Oh yeah, some anniversary of 'Allo 'Allo, what can we expect for next year? An anniversary of Prisoner Cell Block H?
Please, please, please give us loyal memorabiliacs a reason to come in these hard economic times. please give us someone who is CURRENTLY on TV in an American Genre show. I know you've got the bloke who plays Rory in Doctor Who, but even then it's only on sunday.... but come one MCM give us what we want, or at least someone who has been in a show in the last year or so. We have seen the OFAH cast and the Allo Allo cast and the Prisoner cast over and again.
I have been a loyal visitor to the memorabilia since the very first show back in the day, and I have seen it steadily decline. What happened to the promises we had last year of MCM making some BIG changes this year?????
Here's hoping and dreaming and..........
obiyoda wrote:Okay, let's get this into perspective shall we? If you're going to quote me, at least read it first. I didn't say anything was wrong of OFAH, for its time it was good, same with Allo Allo and the same with Prisoner Cell Block H(sort of), what I am saying is that these people have been here time and again and it's time for some fresh guests. If you look at the other collectors fairs/conventions then you will see that they weigh the guests up well with a very good assortment of older guests and newer talent from such shows as Supernatural/Fringe/ SGU etc etc. This is obviously what your customers want from what has been said on here nearly every single time. All we want is some diversity in the guest list. We want to see people we haven't seen before, like Derek Jacobi (good choice there), and the bloke who plays Rory from Doctor Who(ditto- but obviously it would be nice to see the main two there as well). you've had Brett Hart recently, you've had two members of the Merling cast, we know you CAN do it, and it is still early so there is time. As for the comment about the BBC, what I meant so cryptically by that comment was not only the repeat stature of the guests, but that it seems lazy to have the same people over and again .
Hopefully my comments will be read and inwardly digested and if we are lucky even acted upon(?) I will still turn up in November regardless, but please give us what we want!

"...two members of the Merlin cast" - Colin Morgan, Bradley James, Angel Coulby and Katie McGrath have all attended the London show within the last few years.
Main cast members from Eureka and Warehouse 13 have also attended London Expo. Both are popular and modern shows.
Different guests are booked to cater for tastes at different shows - maybe you'd find the London event more suited to you? This year Memorabilia is also being held in London at the same time as Expo with the opportunity to attend both shows. Keep an eye on http://www.londonexpo.com and http://www.memorabilia.co.uk/london for updates

I believe they where actually on about the NEC event NOT the London Expo. Also THIS years Memorabilia is STILL at the NEC just that there is also an additional Memorabilia event which is in London.
