MCM Birmingham Comic Con November 2017

Birmingham Comic Con time, now normally I would be really excited for this show and especially since this year we were trading next to our good friends Curious Creations but unlucky for me, I was SICK AS FCUK!  Yep, first time ever I’d actually come down with a bug right before a convention.  It was…

MCM London Comic Con October 2017

MCM London Comic Con time! I always really enjoy these events but that could be due to the fact I know I’ll be supping down passion fruit bubble tea for 3 days. I do love me some bubble tea.  I was also on a mission to find anything Baby Groot related as I was absolutely…

Retro Festival 2017

It was Retro Festival time!! WOOOOO!! I had really been looking forward to this show, not because I thought I was going to sell lots of goodies and make lots of money, no, I just wanted to be there.  Retro Festival was just something I wanted to do and when the approval had came through…

London Film & Comic Con 2017

It was that time again, LFCC! London Film and Comic Con and as usual, Showmasters put on a fantastic show.  I have no idea how they manage to sign up so many amazing guests but this year they had Benedict Cumberbatch, Pamela Anderson, Christopher Lloyd, Steven Yuen and Terence Stamp to name a few.  I…

Worthing Comic Con 2017

Worthing Comic Con! Finally, a Comic Con right on my doorstep!  As most of you know, I live in Littlehampton which is literally less than 15 minutes away from Worthing so this was pretty exciting.  Also, I may be wrong, but I’m quite sure this was a first of it’s kind for Worthing.  Okay, so…

Collectormania 2017

Collectormania! At long last I was doing Collectormania and I was very excited.  See, when we started doing conventions last year, for some reason, Showmasters didn’t do Collectormania in 2016 and I had seen the line-up the previous year and was in absolute awe of the guest list (truthfully I would have been broke from…

MCM London Comic Con May 2017

London Comic Con time.  I have to admit that I do really enjoy this particular event, MCM know how to put on a good show and the cosplayers who attend are in a league of their own.  Unfortunately I didn’t have my PlayBox Boys with me for this one which means a very short blog…

Brighton Tattoo Convention 2017

Next on the agenda was Brighton Tattoo Convention and I have to be honest, I was really worried about this one.  So much infact, that I did try cancelling, especially after our first tattoo convention being a complete disaster and then Em-con not being so great for us.  Unfortunately it was too late as the…

Em-Con Nottingham 2017

Next stop, Em-Con Nottingham.  This was officially the furthest we travelled for a convention but in a bid to try as many as possible this year we didn’t hesitate in signing up.  Em-Con is basically just like your usual Comic Con but on a more personal scale.  They have guests, photo ops, a few attractions…

PlayBox’s New Logo

Just a heads up to let you all know (in case it wasn’t obvious or you just hadn’t noticed) but we have a new logo.  Truth is, I just wasn’t happy with the rehash of the original logo as it didn’t fit well anymore and lets face it we’ve come a long way since our…
