I've got three double-passes to give away to Armageddon Expo Auckland 2013, which is being held in just two weeks, over Labour Weekend.
Armageddon Expo is a fantastic annual convention-style event for fans of television, film, fantasy, gaming, anime, comics and collectibles ... just about anything you could care to name about pop culture, with a sci-fi/fantasy bent. Last year, I even managed to take in a little archery because there was a demo stand set up in one of the halls. It was awesome. I'm totally ready to volunteer as tribute, now.
I've been along for the last two years running - I even did a photo diary of my visit in 2011 - and one of the highlights is meeting the range of stars who trek down to New Zealand to sign autographs and take photos with fans; signed photos of stars like Christopher Heyerdahl, Mark Pellegrino and Mark Sheppard are treasures in my own telly collection.
This year's lineup of stars is pretty great: Billy "Peregrin Took" Boyd (Lord of the Rings), Evanna "Luna Lovegood" Lynch (Harry Potter franchise) and Dwight "Murdock" Schultz (The A Team) are appearing alongside stars from Farscape, Battlestar Galactica, Stargate SG1 and more.
Armageddon Expo organisers have also done a great job for fans of Doctor Who and Supernatural, bringing over minor stars from both shows. Doctor Who fans can meet Winston Churchill (Ian McNeice), Dorium Maldovar (Simon Fisher-Becker), Jenny (Catrin Stewart), General Staal (Christopher Ryan) and Strax (Dan Starkey), and Supernatural fans can hang with Alastair (Mark Rolston), Benny (Ty Olsson), the Alpha Vampire (Rick Worthy), Jody (Kim Rhodes) and Jay the Magician (Barry Bostwick).
Anyway, let's get back to business - here is how you can win a double-pass to Armageddon Expo in Auckland:
The range of stars from Doctor Who and Supernatural had me wondering who the scariest monsters, the most fearsome species, from either show might be. I reckon it might be Doctor Who's Weeping Angels (the idea of statues that move when you're not looking is just nightmareish), but give a point to Supernatural's Leviathans. Eww.
So, to win a double-pass, tell me who you think is the scariest species of monster from either show, and why you picked them. The three most entertaining and convincing answers, as judged by me, will win a double-pass. Winners will be advised by email early next week.
Armageddon Expo is being held at ASB Showgrounds in Auckland over Labour Weekend, from October 25 to 28. If you don't win a double-pass here today, fear not: you can buy your own tickets to the event right here.
