Re: for all the nerds out there. Its almost Fantasy Basel time again

Huge thanks for the tip, I might have missed out on this one otherwise.

Looking forward to the whole thing, and absolutely looking forward to the Dark Crystal Special, saw it first when I was a kid and it got released made such impression that I am still hooked on it. What an incredible masterpiece.

Re: for all the nerds out there. Its almost Fantasy Basel time again

if you're a starwars fan then projectx1 will be there, not sure which of the awesome props they are bringing this time, last year was a tank, the wall and a tie fighter

https://www.project-x1.de/

the 501st are also there, and the swiss Marvel group (spiderman, ironman, deadpool etc)

Re: for all the nerds out there. Its almost Fantasy Basel time again

First time I went I could not believe the fantasy weapons shop on the bottom floor...

Blew me away.

Good idea to go there. A bit of everything.



And not just for the nerds.

Indeed. Comics and fantasy stuff is definitely not my bag, but I went a couple of years ago and it made for a fun and interesting afternoon.

Re: for all the nerds out there. Its almost Fantasy Basel time again

I'd say I'm a nerd, but on the rationalist/hard scifi side rather than fantasy and I'm not a Japanese schoolgirl, so I'm not into cosplay.

I think I'll pop along though, since it's only a short trip across the water (there may even be a ferry available...).
