London Excel Comic Con -Day 2.

Posted by Cosplay 88 on May 24, 2014 at 7:15 PM Comments comments (0)

Yes we where at the MCM Comic Con at London's Excel on Saturday 24th , braving the crowds of thousands of people that turned up to brave the weather as the skies opened up with Rain,Winds and Hailstorms.

With the new entry and exit rules imposed at Excel ,it makes it a bit more of a chore to get from A to B.

Instead of having loads of people queuing up inside like in previous years , this years idea i think was a bit of a nightmare for vistors to the show,compared to previous shows ..

Robots Fight

But hey ,once in it was same as usaul and the many costumes on show was amazing. ,Look out for our full feature and photo galleries in about a week ,but in the meantime  here's a couple of stills to get you thinking.

Michael Bay attacked filming Transformers 4 in Hong Kong

Posted by Cosplay 88 on October 17, 2013 at 3:45 PM Comments comments (0)

Director Michael Bay was attacked in Hong Kong whilst filming Transformers 4, the franchise director was assaulted by two men who tried estort money from the film director for compensation for their business being affected by the filming of the film.

Sources say the vendors where all paid a going rate agreed by all ,but two drunken vendors decided they would try and get four times the money by causing trouble on set to staff and crew of the film.

Walking on set and demanding some $13000 as compensation, or protection money as it really sounds ,this harks back to the Hong Kong films of old where extortion was common place by triad groups.

Of course this incident seems nothing more then a couple of wiseboys trying to earn some quick cash ,

Security where called and the men where wrestled to the ground ,but continued to fight, Hong Kong Police turned up in riot gear to take down the thugs ,but this still took a number of officers to subdue the thugs.

Maybe they where upset of how Transformers 3 turned out and where trying to stop another disaster.

Lucky enough the crew and Michael Bay are OK and if you really have a grievence with Transformers 4 ,don't go and see it when it comes out ,there's no need to attack the director to get your point across.

Are you looking forward to Transformers 4 or are you going to give it a wide berth after the lacklustre no'3 ?
