Our good friend Darth Elvis has chimed in with his latest blog over at Future of the Force. This one focusing on Capital Sci-Fi Con in Edinburgh which Martin, Paul and I were able to attend for Fantha Tracks. Here is an extract:
I’d only had a few hours sleep following a show the previous night at Monty’s Bar in Dunfermline, but it was time to set course for Edinburgh and Capital Sci Fi Con 2018. This was my second year visiting this excellent convention, which raises funds for the charity CHAS – Children’s Hospice’s Across Scotland, an extremely worthy cause in Scotland. The growing success of this con has seen it move this year to a much larger venue, The Corn Exchange – a venue I was lucky enough to catch Faith No More at, years earlier.
The venue was beautifully laid out with a large room with merchants selling everything from Pop Vinyl, original artwork, autographs, vintage toys and sporrans. There was something there for all kinds of collectors to salivate over. This Dark King of the Sith collects many things but it was the TV and Film guests attending who I was most excited to meet. The organiser, Keith Armour, had really pushed the boat out once again with guests from so many different fandoms. Doctor Who and Hobbit legend Sylvester McCoy and assistant Sophie Aldred; Ian McElhinney from Rogue One and Game of Thrones; Jeremy Bulloch, the legendary Boba Fett; Jimmy Vee, the new R2-D2; and another Doctor Who Legend, Paul Kasey, who has played so many great characters in the new Star Wars films as well as Spencer Wilding to name just a few.
