Including an Athena (or could be Boomer) and Centurion set, and an eyepatch Colonel Tigh! Now if Diamond Select comes through with the Athena/Boomer 2-pack, our dork cup runneth over.

Thanks.
Weird, most of the minimates look like those that were canceled by Diamond ???

They are the Diamond Select ones- I guess the reason they were cancelled was to do the TRU special runs. Damn it, I wanted the Lampkin and Racetrack ones! And why does Chief look like Elvis?

hmmm... well, that would be nice. Let's see first if these minimates won't suddenly "disappear" (poof) like the Diamond ones. (I looked at Toys R' Us version U.K., but nada)
The first should be available end august. Is it more safe to pre-order?

Yeah, but I think these ARE the reason the other wave went *poof*- Diamond Select saw the chance to get product in the mighty TRU and went for it. Can't say as I blame them.

Glad to send them to you. You still bidding on auction stuff? I thought about that last salt box, as a mascot for ATS.

Huh. I tried it. It went for 170 $. Sorry, I'm not that mad. But I've got a complete ration pack (6 items) and an algae protein bar.
They don't do "dutch" (why is it called like this?) auctions since the 2nd Live Auction, so it's more difficult to get "common" items for a "cheap" price.

Got the stuff from the 2nd Live auction today: VALERII,S. gym bag patch + Sharon's cell sketch + Adama dragon box + Caprica Flight Training Academy sign (big, wooden)
Will try to make some photos, even though the photos from the catalog are rather good.

PS: they offered so-called Boomer dog-tags (but from The Plan... it wasn't very clear though) recently. I made a careful S1 recap/study and couldn't find a match ("Lt" missing, or even the size of the "phoenix" was different on the rare screen appearances of Boomer's tags in S1). It went for almost 3000 $. Nah. Too much for brass. I'm happy with my VALERII,S. that we actually saw (Water)... but of course you are never sure that it's the one.
You said previously that the Ebay descriptions went more and more inaccurate. I think you're right. I still am interested by stuff, but I have to think carefully about what it is really and what I want... :dance:

Anyone see this? BATTLESTAR GALACTICA TV SCRIPT GRACE PARK TRICIA HELFER

The description says there are "REPRINTED AUTOGRAPHS on the title page...signed when they attended a panel presentation in Hollywood at the Cinerama Dome on April 20, 2009"

I wonder what the hell that means? :shrug:

Don't know about this panel. The cover is a "reprint" (a copy) of the original where the autographs were. This guy must have reproduced it a lot, because there is a rather low "buy it now" price. It's Epiphanies.

Remember our shared FOTP script? That's a "reprinted" copy.

And yeah, with exit from Propworx of Joe Beaudoin, things have gotten less literate and less accurate by the day- I've caught them a number of times in things (remember the "screen worn" Helo black BDU jacket?) and they tend to be very...not-polite about it. Erin's a nice girl, but not a writer, and, well, my one experience with Alec via email is that he's incredibly rude.

Aha: they are at BBTS too: http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/bbts/sear ... tar&page=7

Concerning Propworx: I feel you're right. As long as everyone always says "you're so great guys", it's fine. But as soon as you start asking real questions...
Anyway, the EBay auctions are finished in four weeks. (they'll do something for The Plan, though)

I may have to get the Apollo and Dualla figures (even though Dualla looks like a man) simply because of all the accessories;

I can see boxing gloves, a clipboard, a ballot box (how awesome is THAT?), a headset, and other stuff. Wish I could see it all more clearly!

The new battle damaged Cylon, Old School battle damaged Cylon, and the Longshot figures are in a Toys R' Us in Atlanta- the battle damaged Cylon is COOL. So is the classic Centurion.

The Longshot figure inexplicably comes with extra shoes. And looks like a thug.

Also all the minimates from the first wave are at TRU.

And THIS-

My brain just went 'splodey!!!!!
