I saw that "Chibs" will be doing a couple of Walker Stalkers in 2017, but unless he shows up on East Coast or thereabouts, you'll be doing some serious traveling to Nashville and Chicago for him! :SIGH1:
Flanagan is probably one of the more "con regular" of the main SOA guys, so if you wait it out, he'll almost definitely come to a show local to you eventually.

Yeah, I'm hoping Flanagan will do RICC this year. I'm sure I'll get him sooner rather than later; don't think I'd fly to any con just for him.

Hunnam...I'm praying he'll do another con down the line despite his awful first experience w/Space City

I'm sure with Hunnam, if he was to do another con again, he's gonna be damn sure that check clears and money is in his account before he steps onto a plane! And I don't blame him one bit!

Hunnam did do Comicpalooza in Houston a few months later. Part of that was presumably as a way to make up to the Houston fans who got screwed by Space City, but I didn't hear that he had any negative experiences, either at the event or from the promoters, and I'm sure he did good business, so hopefully that encourages him to do more appearances down the line.

Hunnam is indeed open for more shows. Both of his agents work for a convention here in Texas and one of them is a good friend. He was filming overseas (I guess King Arthur) so that's why they didn't book him for anything for the fall.

But the bad taste he got at Space City got fixed at Comicpalooza and really wants to do more shows, but 2-3 per year. Doesn't want to go full on. I think MotorCity is one of the cons I remember being discussed.

Any chance for RICC? That would be so great.

It's tricky because one of the two guys owns a photo op company and the only other show Hunnam did was one that he was shooting the ops at. Right after they announced him as a client they were approached by shows that already used him as a photo op provider.
I think since both were fucked over at Space City they eventually decided to just partner up or something lol

DarkDefender wrote:Was there a top 10 wants of 2016 post? I thought there was but I haven't been able to find it. anyway, in no order:

1. Brad Pitt
2. Tom Cruise
3. Leonardo DiCaprio
4. Cate Blanchett
5. Anthony Hopkins
6. Justin Timberlake
7. Meryl Streep
8. Roger Federer
9. Robert De Niro
10. Adele

The top 4 are my top 4 in general, so they'll be at the top for every year until I finally get them. The rest are people I should be able to see, whether or not I get the op is another story.

Others I want: Jake Gyllenhaal, Kathy Bates, Jim Carrey, Tom Hardy, Jude Law, Nicole Kidman, Marilyn Manson, Gwen Stefani, Tom Hanks, Harrison Ford, Denzel Washington, Bill Murray, Mel Gibson, Amy Adams, Cuba Gooding Jr, Clint Eastwood

Once i get all of these, I think I'd be close to retirement from this hobby.
Haven't got any on my top 10 yet but already knocked off 6 names on my "others I want" list for photo ops + a Denzel graph so 7 I guess. Hopefully I can get another 2 more by the end of the week

Just looked back at my top 10 wants from last (this) year - I got ZERO names off that list, and one of them died.

What's odd is that I had a pretty good year for getting people, I just didn't even touch my top ten at all.

4. Kit Harrington
5. Peter Dinklage
6. Lena Headey
