Irascian writes: Collectormania have apparently announced a “good news and bad news” update.

The good news … there will be a special extra “Hobbit Day” tacked on the end of the convention on Monday, October 6th which Sean Astin, Elijah Wood, Andy Serkis and Dominic Monaghan will be attending and performing signings at. They will also be there on the already announced date of Sunday, October 5th.

The bad news is that they won’t be there at all for Friday, October 3rd or Saturday, October 4th other than to attend the screening panel (tickets already sold out) on the Saturday evening. Autographs etc will only be available on the Sunday and the newly-announced Monday!

Other cast members (eg Sala Baker) should be there for the whole event. []
