Pop Con - Nov 3&4, 2018 - Milwaukee, WI

Post by capman » July 21st, 2018, 3:47 pm

Pop Con Milwaukee will be held November 3rd & 4th, 2018 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel & Convention Center in Milwaukee, WI, located moments from the Mitchell International Airport.

Announcest Guests:

The first Land of the Lost Complete Cast Reunion!

From FB "Wesley Eure, Kathy Coleman, Philip Paley, and the patriarch of the show, Spencer Milligan. Since leaving the show at the end of the second season, Mr. Milligan has stayed out of the spot light. With his fondness for his fans, and the special bond he retains with his “Land of the Lost” TV family, Milligan has agreed to make his first and only reunion appearance."
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Well,the ole Capman may be taking his first flight for a con. I have not seen anyone report this one yet. I have tentative plans, but if they fall through, the fact that 82 year old Spencer Milligan has NEVER done a con and ,God knows if he ever will again due to his..well..whatever, reason to never doing it, will get me here.

It's a long one, gang, buckle in.

I am 99% sure I will be like Yosemite Chris, and be the only one posting in my upcoming con/cruise here, however I would love to hear thoughts:

So being a huge LOTL fan, they announced prices for last night, which seem kind of fair, but not sure. I personally would love a cast pic with the four main stars being that Spencer Milligan, the father who is 82 is doing his one and only con since he lives in WI, will be there. However, he is ONLY taking pictures with the VIP package (I wrote last night to find out, and Owner of con said HE may do solo if time permits =no). Also, the group pic they are doing is the raft pic, which to me from the ones I have seen, look hokey with the silly dressed sleestack as I would much prefer I standing pic with all of them like I got at chiller. MAYBE , if they do them suited, with pigtails and all, then it might be worth it...

I haven't bought yet, as I said i would via email, but the owner has not sent me info , although he has claimed that people bought via phone LAST MONTH EVEN BEFORE HE ANNOUNCED ??? I can't fathom buying anything without knowing what I am getting in addition to that not even hearing that was an option. Finally, the top tier VIP, $225 comes with a lot but gives you an option of a cast photo OR autographs. I just don't know.

I have included the post, with some pics from chiller and the silly raft pic from someone else. Would enjoy hearing thought on what YOU would do

Sadly yes...I wouldn't mind if the VIP was a little more and added autos, but the fact there are no group photos w SM outside VIP, is well silly

Well whatever floats your......raft! Also, you can't possibly be concerned about ANYTHING involving Land of the Lost to be hokey. The show literally SCREAMED it! I mean, the rafting in the opening credits was all green screened, and badly. Unfortunately, while I imagine a table op or similar is likely for the old man, you'd be flying in, and to do that without a guarantee is insane. Is the VIP poster signed?

Very good question about the poster as I didn't think of that. I will ask, but I hear ya.

Also, the owner updated me with this which makes the raft a bit easier although can change in a nanosecond:

"It is my understanding that Kathy, Wesley, and Spencer are dressing similar to what they wore on the show. They will have yellow life jackets on, and you will be given a life jacket that matches. Phil will be in the boat too. '
