Visit To Star Wars Collector's Fair In Newport With Peter Mayhew

So I've just got back from the Star Wars Collector's Fair in Newport South Wales.  What a great time I had.  Peter Mayhew (Chewbacca) was there and I must say what a top guy.  Very friendly and funny.

Also had my picture taken with Michael Carter (Bib Fortuna.) who was also friendly and takes the time to personalise your photo.  Also there was Mike Edmonds (Logray) who never stopped smiling and quite happy to have his photo taken with us.  There was a fully working R2-D2 too.
Check out the video

There were loads of stalls and for the collector its heaven.  What did I end up buying?  Well apart from my signed photos I walked away with a brown haired Luke Skywalker, a complete Amanaman and two sealed Topps Goonies card packs.  A great day out and worth the £4 entry fee.  Take a look at the photos below and see the fun we had.  Even the wife enjoyed the fair although I was worried at one point the stormtroopers were going to take her away!

Paul Freeman talks about the famous 'fly' scene in an interview with  and settled 'flygate:' This is a bit of a dicey question so don’t get too upset. (Laughs) A movie’s always got bloopers in it, some have a lot, and some only have three or four. And the most remarkable blooper was right before the opening of th

Explaining That "Weird" Cut In Poltergeist. Read The Missing Scene

Why Is There A Strange Cut In The 1982 Horror Classic, Poltergeist? If you're a fan of the 1982 Horror classic, Poltergeist then you will be very familiar with that "weird" cut in the movie.  It's 32 minutes and 47 seconds in to the movie and the scene is where Diane is explaining the strange phenomenon that is happening in the kitchen.  First, she shows to Steve a chair scraping across the floor all on its own then she does the same with Carol Anne.  Steve leans up against the kitchen wall and is completely shocked at what just happened.  It's at this point Diane starts to explain the sensation of being pulled and then...A very abrupt cut.  One moment we are listening to Diane and suddenly it cuts to Diane and Steve at their next door neighbours door.  Why the sudden cut?  It's on the VHS, DVD, Blu-Ray and even the streaming versions.  Why does this awful and weird cut exist in the movie, Poltergeist?  Watch the clip below to see the cut: Well, the ans
