BAG END - SET BUILD
"In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit. Not a nasty, dirty, wet hole, filled with the ends of worms and an oozy smell, nor yet a dry, bare, sandy hole with nothing in it to sit down on or to eat: it was a hobbit-hole and that meant comfort." Hobbit-holes, otherwise called Smials, were the preferred dwellings of Hobbits in the Shire, the ancient mortal race inhabiting Middle-earth. They were holes dug into the hillside, usually had a minimum of one round window and front door and sometimes back door. It was the primarily wealthy families of Hobbits that ususally built Smials, spacious and luxurious tunnels, a souped-up version of a Hobbit-hole. The most famous Hobbit-hole of them all, Bag End, home of Bilbo Baggins, Frodo Baggins and later the Sackville-Bagginses and then Samwise Gamgee, could be called a Smial, as it was an expansive Hobbit-hole with many windows; a large circular green front and back door, and a large number of rooms; as well as the famously renowned pantries which supplied food for many a party or celebration. Now, Comic Con Liverpool 2020 is proud to bring you the one and only Bag End as a complete set build. You can have your photograph taken outside of Bag End, before going INSIDE and get another there making this a one-off and very exciting attraction indeed!
FALKOR PHOTO OP AREA - SET BUILD
Falkor is a Luck Dragon and one of the main characters from The NeverEnding Story, appearing as the deuteragonist/tritagonist. Falkor is very wise, incredibly optimistic, dignified and a very friendly sophisticated being from Fantasia. He gives advice to people when they have lost hope in many things they set out to do whether in a quest for what they seek or in some cases people and beings have given up altogether and lost faith. Mostly during the Nothings destruction of Fantasia, he helps Atreyu along the way of his quest to stop The Nothing. Falkor's attitude purely comes from his heart, it is proven that his openness to making friends means a lot to everyone he encounters, into which Falkor in return treasures every friendship he has. Falkor however never wants to make enemies, only those who are threats to his friends or threats in general towards Fantasia itself.
Liverpool Comic Con 2020 is delighted to bring you an amazing opportunity to fly on the back of Falkor just like Bastion! Settle yourself on the back of our fan-built Falkor which is part of our NeverEnding Story Reunion Special and grab yourself a photo!
THE SWAMP OF SADNESS - SET BUILD
The Swamp of Sadness is a deadly swamp that symbolically represents pure sorrow and misery, and is an early location in Fantasia in The NeverEnding Story. It is here the giant turtle Morla, informs Atreyu of the remaining distance for his journey to reach the Southern Oracle, ten thousand miles away. Legends say that whoever lets despair overtake him or her will sink into the swamp. Artax, Atreyu's horse, was the swamp's most unfortunate victim. Grieving, and barely able to go on, Atreyu is sinking into the swamp when Falkor the Luckdragon swoops in and rescues him, just as Gmork, the Nothing's evil wolf-like servant, is almost upon him. The Nothing devours all of Fantasia, save for a single grain of sand and the Childlike Empress. Bastian uses his imagination to restore Fantasia to its former glory, and Atreyu is seen riding Artax across his homeland in the Grassy Plains.
We're not crying you're crying! Yes, Comic Con Liverpool has brought you the most distressing and heartbreaking scene of The NeverEnding Story to see if YOU can save Artax because we're good like that! Don't worry, he won't really sink! Check it out as part of our NeverEnding Reunion Special!
JOHNNY 5 - PROP
"Number 5 is alive!"
Johnny 5 (originally called "S-A-I-N-T Prototype Number 5") is the fictional robotic star of the movies Short Circuit and Short Circuit 2 and a TV special called Hot Cars, Cold Facts. He is a former military robot imbued with intelligence and sentience by a lightning bolt, and is considered to be alive in the philosophical sense, as he has emotions and is self-aware.
Number 5 was designed by Dr. Newton Crosby (Steve Guttenberg) and his partner Benjamin Jahrvi, and was constructed by Nova Laboratories Inc., Robotics Division, along with four other prototypes, as technology demonstrators for the United States Department of Defense (DoD). Nova proposed that the design could be used as a robotic soldier and as an intelligent delivery system for nuclear weapons. The design was marketed to the DoD as S-A-I-N-T (Strategic-|Artificially-Intelligent-Nuclear-Transport).
Meet Johnny 5 only at Comic Con Liverpool and get a photo along with his creator Steve Guttenberg!
ED-209 - PROP
Standing 10 feet tall, the Enforcement Droid, Series 209, aka ED-209, was a fully-automated series of peacekeeping machines created by Omni Consumer Products. The units were programmed for urban pacification, but OCP also negotiated contracts with the military for use in war.
During its first demonstration in the 1987 film Robocop, ED-209 malfunctioned disastrously, blasting junior executive Mr. Kinney to death over a sustained period of time. Unable to stop the droid's rampage, Dr. McNamara and his fellow technicians struggled to gain control over ED-209, having to pull some sort of plug to finally shut it down. Because of the Kinney tragedy, the RoboCop program was given the green-light and Murphy became the law enforcement marvel known as Robocop.
ED-209 will appear at Comic Con Liverpool but don’t worry we have OCO lab technicians on site to make sure he does not malfunction! Still, I wouldn't advise pointing a gun at him - you know, just in case...
DEL BOY'S LOUNGE - SET BUILD
Only Fools and Horses was a British television sitcom written and created by John Sullivan. It followed the Trotter family's highs and lows in life and in particular, their get-rich-quick schemes.
Most of their less-than-legit ideas originated from inside their Peckham flat which was not only used for housing the Trotters family, but for storing their "dodgy" items to sell on the open market. It was widely noted that everything in the flat had a price and was available for sale, (which is why the the flat changed so much from episode to episode.)
Thousands of fans have had the dream of siting in the flat with their mates, sharing laughs with Del and Rodney while listening to Uncle Albert, Trigger, and Boycie's crazy stories. Well, now is your chance as it is being built especially for Comic Con Liverpool 2020!
From the dodgy palm tree wall paper to the yellow curtains and cocktail bar, you can see it all!
Who knows, maybe Boycie and Marlene will pop over for a few drinks and selfies in the living room!

THE IRON THRONE - PROP
The mighty Iron Throne of the six (formerly seven) kingdoms of Westeros, allegedly forged from 1000 swords surrendered to Aegon the Conqueror in the War of Conquest, by the lord who had sworn fealty to the new King. In actuality, the throne is made from only around 200 swords. The Iron Throne was the throne upon which the King of the Andals, the Rhoynar, and the First Men sat, located in the Great Hall of the Red Keep in the city of King's Landing. Besides the monarchs themselves, only their Hand could sit on the Iron Throne. In the aftermath of the Battle of King's Landing, the Iron Throne was destroyed by the dragon Drogon and the formerly hereditary monarchy was transformed into an elective one, with the lords and ladies of Westeros electing each new ruler in a Great Council, the first and incumbent elected monarch being King Bran the Broken. The monarch also henceforth only ruled six of the Seven Kingdoms, the North having been granted independence.
