UPDATE: We're making it happen! From the moment we posted we've been getting lots of comments and emails of people who'd love to purchase a collector glass. We did some research and found a site that'll print them up for us at a reasonable rate (around $5 plus shipping). While it won't be the specific glass pictured below (need to include more characters), it'll definitely be vintage styled. We'll share the design and details with you soon!
We haven't had a digital prop in quite a bit due to the fact that we're using every spare minute to complete the series itself. But I thought I'd give you a look at something I was trying to put together. Collector glasses!
Nearly every blockbuster film of the 70's and 80's was celebrated by limited edition collector glasses usually for sale at a fast food joint. While dreaming up digital props to offer, our own Jack Yaeger (Curt Wootton) suggested collector glasses. Genius! The plan was to get a couple made and make them available on ebay for a few lucky fans. Unfortunately the cost to produce these is incredibly prohibitive (just one alone would cost nearly $100!) so this won't likely happen until we've got greater resources to draw from. In the meantime here's a peek at a mock-up I put together for it. (Click the image for larger version)
Help has arrived for Papercraft Edward! Download, print, and fold our pulp hero Jack Yaeger. I mean really, what else are you doing on Mercury Monday that's so important? This one is just as easy as the Edward model and can be cut, folded, and protecting your desk in only a few minutes.
On September 21, 1974, the Mariner 10 space probe conducted its second fly by of the planet Mercury. It transmitted images of the planet's surface along with atmospheric data. Among the images captured by the spacecraft was a disturbing image which was not publicly released.
Bored at work on Mercury Monday? Adorn your cubicle with a papercraft model of Edward Borman! Simply print the template on cardstock paper (you can use regular if don't have any), carefully cut it out, fold on the dotted lines, and glue the tabs using either a glue stick or regular ol' Elmers.
At 11:35 PM on August 26th, 1975, Donald Collins of Baltimore, Maryland, a radio enthusiast, discovered a strange foreign broadcast on an unusual frequency. The 30 second broadcast was on a repeating loop which lasted for only 7 minutes. Luckily, Mr. Collins had the foresight to record it.
Break out the old 2600 and hook up the console TV because here come The Mercury Men! In 1982, after the success of the arcade and console hit Berzerk, video game makers raced to get out a shooter of their own. The Mercury Men console game had players firing on invaders and dodging lightning all while climbing the floors of the building to reach the "brain."
