Just a sleepy post before bedtime! I went to Collectormania 7 today, and met up with a handful of my lovely Scaper buds! ((((hugs and waves))) Too tired to put your names in lj user tags, hey, you guys know who you are anyways ;) It was GREAT to see you again!

I had a lovely time wandering in and out of dealer aisles, listening to Sean Astin be wacky on the PA system, trying to catch a glimpse of most of the guests, and totally missing others. Michael Shanks and Chris Judge cancelled, which was a shame as I would have got their autos - still, saved me some money anyway. Corin Nemec's hair was sane this year, thank goodness, but I had his auto from the year before last and hey, the hair just traumatised me last year, hee.

Various Harry Potter lads were their looking freakily like normal kids. ALso there (and I find this ironic) were Jamie Bamber and Katie Sackoff (sp?).

Ironic, you ask? Why so, you ask? Well, I've been dragging my heels over getting the Battlestar Galactica mini partly because I'm working my way through Firefly. Thing is, this afternoon I hadn't seen any BSG and thus couldn't be described as the least bit fangirlish.. So I didn't really WANT Jamie and Katie's autos...whilst I guess it would be nice to say hey, look I have them, I want to be excited if I ever get them! And that wouldn't have been this afternoon.

So far I am probably 3/4 the way through the mini. I have a headache!! And I am liking it! (BSG not the headache!). I have forgiven them Starbuck's gender, because just as you can say that Farscape wasn't your father's sci fi, the modern BSG isn't your father's sci fi either! And my psyche seems to have accepted that!

Katie Sackoff look lovely, striking with a wide smile :) Jamie looked "normal blokeish"...that is to say I hadn't bonded with him as a character yet. If I ever bond so much that I start drooling, then maybe I WILL wish I'd got the autos, lol.

Looking for Firefly merch I suddenly reaslise THERE ISN'T ANY!!! Well, not much. I found a few photos, some were screen caps. There were a couple of big signed photos but I couldn't really justify geting them even though Mal look delicious (ooooh, yes...I have bonded with Mal ;) ). But of course the series hadn't built up enough steam to get really merched up. Still, I put my name down on a mailing list for info on Serenity previews/info/stuff. I'm talking Firefly up if ever any one mentions it and sometimes when they don't.

Hmmm, oh, and we got given free badges and tee shirts for something called Night Watch? Apparently a sci fi film.

Right am going to bed as am very sleepy now! To my beautiful UK Scaper mates have fun and don't get hangovers ;) Oh, btw - I am currently bidding on ebay for the Peacekeeper Wars sub set ;) But there are some *buy it now* options that are still cheaper than dealers. Yeah yeah, I know I said I was gonna wait so I had something to look for next time but I just couldn't resist!

Night all!

Heya ::waves:: I just went for the Saturday but I know my mates were staying over at a friend's place and making a weekend of it :) It does tend to be that if there is a guest I want to see it's a bonus; I really like seeing my mates, because they don't live that close to me.

Farscape merch...sighs...not that much new that I can see. The Peacekeeper Wars sub set is part of the "Through the Wormhole" collectors/trading cards.

Don't know how much you know about Farscape merch in general? There have been several sets of Trading cards to collect, I think 1 set produced for each season, plus a Lenticular set (where the picture on the cards move).

The latest was called ""Through the Wormhole" and I THINK comprised of images from throughout the whole series, PLUS a sub set of 18 cards just on "Peacekeeper Wars". Although I have all the previous sets, I decided not to get these, but then found out about the PKW sub set and now I do want that!

You will usually find that card dealers do have the cards or some cards anyway, so if you are new to merch there are definately some things to look for. So in general at C7 there were trading cards, photos, autos, probably a couple of fabric patches (I have an IASA and a FARSCAPE 1), plus 2 or 3 companion guides.

It all depends...if you are new to merch then there was stuff to be interested in. But if you are old and jaded ;) like me, and have lots of stuff already then there wasn't much new to look for. Oh, there are quite a few action figures available but have to say I don't think I saw any this time. Mind you I don't have many of those, but I do have 2 John figures.

LOL...I make it sound like I am obsessed and have a house full of Farscape memorabilia but it's not like my living room is dressed up like Command on Moya ;) I have very little stuff actually on display, and if I have 2 John figures standing by my pc, well, what's the harm ;) They say "retail" is "therapy" right??

If you want any more info on merch just holler, though!
