Liverpool Comic Con
Friday 8th March – Sunday 10th March 2019
Exhibition Centre Liverpool
Welcome back to my over view of Liverpool Comic Con. Last time, I shared photos of some of the amazing Cosplay outfits to be seen at the event. This time, I thought I’d share some pics of the eye-popping props on display.
The selection of display items at this convention was another selling point, with plenty to view.
Star of the show was a full scale X-Wing Fighter, which dominated the exhibition hall on entry. It was spectacular: the size and detail both being extremely impressive. Even though, as I stated previously, it was a Disney Star Wars ship and not the version from the classic trilogy, it was pretty cool.
Just imagine how ace it would’ve been if it was a full scale Incom T-65 X-Wing Fighter, as flown by Luke in Episode IV?! If only.
There were several vehicles from film and TV also, including BA’s van from The A-Team and KITT from Knight Rider. Both awesome.
I’ve seen a Back to the Future DeLorean before, but it’s always a treat. This one was, of course, tricked out with other props from the film too – like Marty’s hover board.
In addition to vehicles, I also saw costumes from Battlestar Galactica and Buck Rogers in the 25th Century – two Glen A Larson classics from my childhood. I was pretty stoked to witness these first hand, being a huge fan of both television programmes.
Not to mention there was a ton of Star Wars costumes, helmets and gadgets that I didn’t get round to photographing. I did take a pic of my all time hero R2 D2 though (and one of Johnny 5 from Short Circuit, another star of the day).
I assume all the props I saw were reproductions rather than actual items used in filming (I could be wrong). However it was still a thrill to see them. If only I could’ve actually sat in the vehicles…
