London Expo + Loot

well as i said in my last post this was my first expo, so i thought i would do a nice post about the expo and london, seeing as we went around london after we had finished at the expo. 

So this post is going to be filled with nice pics from the expo and around london on our many train and underground journeys lol, and of course to finish off the post i will be posting a picture of the loot from the day 😀

Well we booked the train for 7.20am leaving from leicester – so we both decided a nice early night would be a good idea seeing as we would have to wake up around 5.45 to leave to walk to the train station around 6.30 and just to really annoying us this was also the sunday that the clocks went back an hour at 2am so put the clocks back before i went to bed and laying ther and cin the clock say 9.30 was not at all making me tired and in the end didn’t get to sleep till around 1.30am so only got around 4hours sleep which was painful to say i normally sleep for around 10hours lol and was feeling slighty ill but of course i was not going to let this stop me the excitement would see me through the day.

The train took 2 hours and 49 mins to get to london which isn’t that bad had total film and my ipod to keep me entertained as well as all the talking we did, we also managed to get seats with a table so it made the journey even better hehe 😀

Well we arrived in london and brought our tube tickets got on the corrects lines and finally reached the expo just after 11am, where we joined a nice cue to get our tickets hehe

and of course at the enterance was R2D2 and a dalak so had to get a piccy of them

R2D2 - the dirty version

ther was also a clean R2D2 but i didn’t think i was as amazing as the dirty version, the clean one just looked to new and not really as epic as this one hehe, and of course the dalak ther were two roaming around a blue and a red one, also storm troopers were wondering around but didn’t manage to get a pic of them 😦 lol

Ghost busters

I can’t actually member how long we spent in ther but it was quite a long time i think it was around 1.30 or 2pm when we left to go wonder around london hehe. I did only buy a gundam kit from the expo of course my friend brought a whole lot more lol. i have already built this kit and will be doing a seperate post on it.

we took the tube back to covent garden and all the other places on our list of shops to visit, of course we did stop at a mcdo’s for food before looking around more shops – needed a stop to refuel and sit for a while hehe.

Here are some random pics that i took while waiting for the train and walking around london.
