MCM Midlands Comic Con 16 February

From the galaxy's most badass bounty hunter to two of the best new games to come out of Japan, this Saturday's MCM Midlands Comic Con at Telford International Centre comes jam-packed with geeky goodness. Here are a few highlights:

Star Wars fan favourite Boba Fett will be touching down in Telford as British actor Jeremy Bulloch meets fans, signs autographs and hosts a panel. As well as playing the iconic bounty hunter, Jeremy's credits range from James Bond movies to TV shows such as Doctor Who, Spooks and Robin of Sherwood.

Primeval stars Andrew Lee Potts and Hannah Spearritt will be in attendance. Andrew plays palaeontology student Connor Temple in Primeval: New World while former S Club 7 star Hannah appeared in all five seasons of Primeval as zookeeper Abby Maitland.

New Japanese RPG Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch is flying off the shelves courtesy of Namco Bandai. Fans of the game will also discover the voice of Ni no Kuni's lovable Drippy - Gavin & Stacey actor Steffan Rhodri - over in the signing area.

Voice actress Alix Wilton Regan will be on hand for autographs and will be hosting a panel. Best known as the voice of Samantha Traynor in BioWare's Mass Effect 3, Alix's other roles include Mhairi in Dragon Age: Origins - Awakening and Calista in Final Fantasy creator Hironobu Sakaguchi's The Last Story.

Konami is giving visitors the chance to get hands-on with the eagerly-anticipated Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance ahead of its 22 February release date.

Telford also sees the first comic con appearance by Eoin Macken, best known as Sir Gwaine from BBC fantasy series Merlin.

Metal band The Dead Lay Waiting will be at the show to promote their new comic book.
