For you frakkers who are lucky enough to be going to San Diego Comic Con (No, not jealous, not one bit….grrr) there are a couple of special BSG things to watch out for.
The makers of some really cool replica BSG costume items like the double tanks, ANOVOS, are getting together on Friday afternoon from 1 – 1:30 at Booth 2913 to take a really cool picture of all the BSG fans in their costume gear. (Interesting tidbit: Mythbusters very own Grant Imahara tweeted recently how thrilled he was to get his ANOVOS BSG Duty Blues in the mail!) And if you don’t have ANOVOS gear, you can still show up and take part. When the photographer says “On three…1, 2, 3″ you just know you all have to say “So Say We All!” as loud as you can. And if, like me, you won’t be able to make it to SDCC this year, you can watch the event on Ustream here.
Also on the apparel front, female BSG fans should keep an eye out for the Her Universe booth, where they will be unveiling some new BSG items specifically aimed at female fans. They will have just 300 of their new Cylon toaster necklace. Since the creator of Her Universe is Ashley Eckstein, the voice of Ahsoka Tano on Star Wars: The Clone Wars, you can find her merchandise at the Lucasfilm Booth 2913-F.
There will be a “Battlestar: So Say We All” panel on Thursday morning, hosted by Richard Hatch, featuring BSG Science Advisor Kevin Grazier and writer Michael Taylor.
For those of us who can’t be there…have a great time at SDCC!
