We've been holding onto our newest stash of collector's glasses, waiting until the series release announcement to make them available for sale. But we've recieved a good amount of requests to buy glasses for Christmas, and we don't want to be a bunch of Scrooge's hording these beautiful beverage containers for ourselves. So for ONE DAY ONLY, we've put up a VERY limited amount of collector's glasses for purchase! I mean, what sci-fi fan wouldn't love drinking some Star Wars blue milk out of one of these? And the glasses will be shipped out this week to make sure they get to your house by Christmas.
UPDATE: Sale ended. More glasses will be available soon.
Although The Mercury Men is a clear throwback to the old cliffhanger serials of the 1930's and the sci-fi B movies of the 1950's, I've always tried to steer clear from basing TOO much of our branding on the cheesy, over-the-stop advertising those genre's employed. This is why our trailer doesn't have titles flying at you that simply read "DANGER" or a nasaly-voiced announcer belting out "Will our heroes survive the attack of The Mercury Men?" While I love those classic film elements, and always enjoy seeing a modern project recreate them, I didn't want The Mercury Men to strictly become an homage to old cinema. There has been one area however, which I've always thought it would be insincere for us to stray from: the posters. We've paid tribute to the great Saul Bass with our teaser poster and I thought it only fitting that we also offer our version of the classic sci-fi posters, like you might have seen at a 1950's drive-in.
You requested it and now they're here! New Mercury Men limited edition collector's glass, just like restaurants used to offer for those nostalgic summer adventure films! A pair of collectable 16oz drinking glasses with retro styled artwork featuring Edward Borman, Jack Yaeger, Mercury Invader, and Mercury Engineer. Glasses are generously sized, thick cut glass, and measure 6" tall (common pint size).
Here's a look at the artwork I've been working on for the collector's glass. Trying to maintain that retro/vintage look. The image should wrap most of the way around the glass.
