i had a great idea!

has there ever been a big James Bond convention anywhere?!?! it would be so awesome if we had a convention. we could have memorabilia auctions, have special guests, we could meet some of our site friends and finally see the faces behind the usernames. it would be AWESOME! who here agrees with me? 8  out of 9 found this valuable.

That is a great idea. I know they have had them in Britain. I don't know about here. I would be definitely up for it. If they have Star Trek, Sci Fi, Super Hero and XFiles conventions, I don't know why there shouldn't be a James Bond one. What city? I say we pick one from a Bond Location. Las Vegas is one of the obvious, any others? 2  out of 2 found this valuable. Do you?

LV is a good area. its right near the center of the US. but i think it should be more east, maybe NYC. it seems more members live on the east, plus bond went there (in the book live and let die).

Well, since Wetpaint is HQ'd in Seattle, why not there? I'm sure Alex would agree...

Also...there are Bond Conventions in England, The International James Bond Fan Club has yearly or semi-annual luncheons at Pinewood Studios with stars, crew and pops.

but i was thinking kinda along the lines of a convention for ALL fans, not just the ones privileged enough to go to the luncheon at Pinewood. when it comes to time, maybe it could span a weekend. or even only be a day! like i said above, we'd be able to place a face to the username. the trekkies get a big convention, the comic fans get a big convention, so y not us!!! y not the fans of one of the biggest and oldest pop culture icons in history- Agent 007.

And ours wouldn't be as sad, with little pointy ears and space suits on everyone. We could simply where a bowler hat and it be considered wearing a costume lol. It would also be kinda cool if they had memorbilia there. Like the stuff they had at the Bond. James Bond Exhibit at Henry Ford.

agreed. cedric and i were talking over it before, and its seems that one of the few, yet largest, problems facing a convention are travel prices these days.

Obviously, it's not going to be for ALL fans--only the ones in the vicinity or the bucks to shell out to travel. And that's going to happen no matter where you stage it. Most of those IJBFC things run a weekend, you know,
